Announcing a new Meetup for LARP Alliance Meetup Group - Atlanta!

What: Avegost Weekend event

When: Friday, November 12,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Laura S. Walker State Park
5653 Laura Walker Rd.
Waycross , GA 31503

..:::WHAT:::..
If you've seen ROLEMODELS, a hit movie, you know what LARPing is. Unlike ROLEMODELS however you're looking at an AVEGOST LARP event. This isn't the type of LARP that has helped grow a stigma against LARP in the United States. This is the type of LARP that features real armor, safe but realistic combat and an expansive mythos and system which exists to help you fully immerse yourself within a character.

No previous L...ARP experience required. In fact, we prefer you didn't have it.

..:::WHERE:::..
This is a WEEKEND EVENT. Weekend events are held at Laura S. Walker State Park in Waycross, Georgia.It is a mere two hours from Savannah, GA and less than that from Jacksonville, Florida and four hours from Atlanta, Georgia. Its worth the drive to both Savannah and Atlanta players alike and we give a $10.00 EVENT DISCOUNT for those attending from a distance.

Directions to the campground can be found by clicking "map" above if you are on Facebook or by going to http://www.Avegost.com/ and clicking "directions" on the left.

..:::WHEN:::..
The game begins at 9:00 PM on Friday night and ends at 2:00 PM the following Sunday morning. It is a full-weekend event and you have a month or more to request it off work. Don't miss this.

The game will take place on November 12th, 13th, and 14th.

..:::COST TO ATTEND:::..
Avegost LARP is the cheapest LARP to attend in the state of Georgia and for such a low price you get Elizabethan Theatre acting for Walmart Prices!

Other LARPs in Georgia charge $45.00 to $60.00 an event but we reduce our prices to encourage players to spend more on their costuming. Event cost is based entirely on whether you're a new player or an existing one.

* Are you new? play for free.
* No cash? play for free.

The event costs $35.00 for a set amount of "points" earned towards your character for NPCs and players alike. As mentioned you can NPC for free. No reason to miss this. Less than a concert and it lasts three days!

..:::DRIVING FROM AFAR? ENJOY OUR DISCOUNTS:::..
Additionally you are welcome to take advantage of our discounts. Players who are traveling more than 200 miles to our event can have their cost reduced by $10.00 if they pre-register for the event. Pre-Registering means you pay before you arrive via check, money order, or paypal (please note, paypal incurs a $2.00 fee). We offer this discount to assist our players from Atlanta and other distances with their cost of gas of traveling to an event so far away!

For years people in Savannah have made the trek to Atlanta for sub-par LARPs and have never received a price discount for their troubles and while we can't promise this discount will always exist we recommend you take advantage of it! $25.00 to LARP for an entire weekend.

..:::WANT TO GUARANTEE A BED? PRE-REG:::..
Pre-Registering can be done at www.Avegost.com/preregister/ and gets you in the door for cheaper if you're a player coming from a distance. Pre-Regging also benefits returning non-distance players as they get a preferred choice of bunk, cabin, expedited check in, and the use of In-Between-Game-Actions.

..:::AMENITIES:::.
Avegost LARP uses the Laura S. Walker campground which is a primitive site with cabins. Players enjoy their immersion in primitive cabins and volunteer staff and NPCs enjoy a modern building with electricity for their hard work.

* These cabins are not heated and are not cooled.
* There is a bath house with running hot and cold water and shower facilities.
* These cabins do not have kitchens.
* There are grills (which require coals or firewood) outside.

Laura S. Walker does not permit space heaters or personal heaters within the cabins. Laura S. Walker does permit dogs or other pets however you must receive permission from Avegost LARP's Head of Plot for animals to be present at the event.

There are various fast-food and other restaurants near the campground (within 20 minutes) and you also have permission to bring your own personal grill, realizing that of course you must use it outside. There are usable grills outside of the camp. The campground sells Firewood for $6.00 a bundle. Each bundle is larger than those bought at Walmart. We encourage players to maintain the immersion of the game and not leave the campground for food. On occassion, you may also purchase food from Avegost LARP for a nominal fee to cover the cost of said food. The meal plan will be discussed on the www.Avegost.com forums at www.Avegost.com/forum
