    Any other colour, it's your choice whether to pay attention or not

    For the cities which were formerly great have most of them become insignificant; and such as are at present powerful, were weak in the olden time. I shall therefore discourse equally of both, convinced that human happiness never continues long in one stay.

    I hope you find this useful. Ask any player a question about the game, and they should be happy to answer it.
    Below is something I wrote a month or two ago when I ran a game.


    Werewolf For Newbies (by tamius):

    You are either a "good" player or a "bad" player. Whichever you are, you are obliged to vote once per day, by posting in bold in the thread. eg. Vote Tamius. You may Unvote and Vote someone else as many times as you want, and the player with the most votes at the end of the day is brutally killed by everyone, that is, "lynched". If you are a werewolf, you may send in a "hunt" order by Private Message to the GM. The GM runs the game.

    All orders must be in before the deadline, or they are ignored. It is considered that everyone votes during the "day." and the wolves hunt during the "night." Normally most games begin with a "night deadline", a day in which the votes are ignored (known as "day zero sham voting") and only the orders, by the wolves and other roles which send orders, are considered.

    There are a multitude of roles in the game of Werewolf, and they are listed at the start of a game thread, with their effects. Some players may also have traits.

    For the villagers and other "good" players to win, they must kill all the "bad" players. For the "bad" players to win, they must kill all members of opposing packs (generally there are two packs, occasionally three) and then reach the same numbers as the remaining "good" players. This is called parity, and when baddies of one pack are equal or greater in numbers than goodies, they win.

    To sign up to a game of werewolf, post in the thread. A simple "In" will suffice, and you will be added to the player roster by the GM.

    I don't think I can explain it any better than what's already there, but if you still don't understand it fully, you can always play a game and learn as you go. That's what I did; when I started the rules were too long and boring for me to read so I just joined a game and picked it up soon enough.

    Support the right to arm bears My Lemeard Cookie for making a 4 way TIE
    Jamie550: I've just read the last ten pages, and now I know why Jonti has by far the most wins
    No, this is complex Lite with Euros Lemeards and jontis. - EUROO7
    As far as I know is jonti always evil. British 19th-century sophisticated evil. with a cigar - the_hdk
    Wisdom from EUROO7: Listen to jonti, noob.| Marty99 " Werewolf is basically the Sesame Street of bigotry. "
    I see noob people. Walking around like regular people. They don't see each other. They only see what they want to see. They don't know they're noob.

    There's nothing in "basic game information" - it's "under construction" - so you could put it there.

    That thread is stickied, I presume?

    I'm going to second some of the others here and suggest you just sign up for a game and figure out how to play on the go.
    There's no better way to learn this game than to die by your own horrible mistakes a few (dozen) times ..
