Avegost is a full immersion, medieval combat larp in Waycross, Georgia. They pride themselves on having the highest immersion (meaning that no anachronisms are allowed; everything looks and feels as though you’ve landed in the middle ages) and being one of the most affordable larps in Georgia. They don’t consider themselves just a game, but also a sport, a historical reenactment, and a fictional story all rolled into one.
What separates Avegost from other larps is their dedication to being medieval enthusiasts, as you’ll see when looking through the photo gallery below. They take pride in their costumes, period tents, and even the table settings.
While not everyone is into hardcore medieval reenactment, I think Avegost is setting a new standard in larp excellence in America. Everything from their friendly and welcoming attitude to their commitment to high-quality costumes and period camping equipment is to be applauded.
