Do not attack or insult other players in the game. A little bit can be overlooked; if it becomes excessive, or contravenes 2+2 site rules, then Moderator action may be taken. You should focus on attacking a persons ideas, actions or logic - not the poster as an individual. If you feel someone is crossing the line with namecalling, you should PM a POG Mod (Legend42, gtpitch or Zurvan) who is not currently playing in the game. Post reports should be avoided if mods are playing the game, as it may provide them additional unfair information based on who is reporting. Standard 2+2 rules violations (ie, telling someone to perish in a oily conflagration, inline nudity) can be reported with the Post Notification button.
Wagering on the game is not allowed.
2+2 Terms of Service and site rules are to be observed at all times
One account per player - you may not play in a game with multiple accounts, nor should you attempt to use a well known account to extract information from other players while you play on a gimmick account.

Any other PMs or private communication with the Game mod is not to be posted in the thread
Any time you have rule questions - be it general questions, or those about specific game rules - contact the Mod in private. Do not post the question in thread, and do not expect the mod to see any questions posted.
No communication outside the game thread with ANY other players in the game about the game, unless it is specifically allowed by your role, and only within such times as are specified in the role PM.
This is a vanilla+ game. The entire role set will be posted in this thread. First night will fall on Friday, after that nights will fall Sunday through Friday.
Both seers get a true n0 peek from the entire player list.
Each day, each player is allowed (and encouraged) to vote to lynch a player. To do so, type the name of the player in bold
; if you want to be sure the moderator sees it, you could be so kind as to write something like "vote: Zurvan
", but it is not required.You may abbreviate the name of the player, provided it is clear to other players (and the moderator) whom you mean.
You may remove your vote by posting "unvote
". You may change your vote simply by voting the new player; you do not need to unvote.
At the end of the scheduled game day, the player with the most votes is lynched, and his role revealed in the thread. If two or more players are tied for the most votes, one of the tied players is chosen randomly by the moderator.
Majority lynch option:
There will be no majority on d1, d2 and onwards it's possible though.
If at any time during the day any player has a majority the possible votes on him (e.g., with nine players alive, five or more is a majority), the day ends immediately and that player is lynched. Any player who believes a player has reached majority should post "night
", and all other posting should cease while the vote count is confirmed.
All times given are server time, which is also Eastern Standard Time.
I will open the thread every morning by posting "It is day.
" You may not post in the thread until I have made the morning post. Day will usually start around 1:00am
Day lasts until 8:00pm
. Posting at 8:00
is acceptable, and votes with that time stamp will be counted. Posting after that, even just a minute after, is not acceptable, even if I have not yet declared it night by posting "It is night.
" Do not post in the thread at any time, for any reason, between the end of the day and the opening of the thread the next morning.
Villager, except for masons, may not communicate with any other player in the game outside of this thread. Any communication about the substance of the game (i.e., anything beyond the fact that the game is being played and that you are in it) outside of this thread is prohibited.
Wolves may communicate with each other by any means they desire during wolf chat
Wolves have 24 hour chat.

- Sun Tzu
- The Moocher
Any questions regarding the rules should be submitted to the moderator by PM.
Werewolf is a participatory game. While it may be good strategy simply never to post, it is not fun for other players when people play that way. Accordingly, everyone is expected to participate on a regular basis.
This means that everyone is expected to post something
every day, but it means more than that. Popping into the thread once a day to say "posting to avoid modkill" is an excellent way to get modkilled.
If you aren't going to be able to post at all on a given game day, tell me beforehand. Life happens; we get that. Once or twice is not an enormous problem, but if it's going to be an ongoing issue, we'll have to find you a substitute.
Players are required to enter the sheep games each day.
Lying is not only allowed, it is expected.
Quoting or paraphrasing communications with or PMs from the mod is not allowed. Discussing the reason for substitutions or modkills is not allowed. Discussing angleshooting in the thread is not allowed. If you suspect someone is breaking the rules, contact me directly.
Player assistance with vote counts will be greatly
appreciated when the moderator is not available. If you make a mistake while doing one, that's to be expected. Do not intentionally make any, though.
Posting after day has ended, whether I have called "night" or not, is not allowed.
Discussing the game outside the thread is not allowed. Sometimes this comes up when someone is in two games at once; basically, the most you can say outside this thread is that the game is going on, and so-andso was or is in it.
Posting in the thread after you're dead is not allowed, much. You may post once after you are killed, if you want, but you may not say anything substantive -- "go, village" or "take it down, wolves" are about the limit. After that, stay out of the thread; root, but root silently.
It is best if after you are dead you don't discuss the substance of the game with anyone else in the game, or even other people, until it's over.
If you are ever unsure about whether something is or is not allowed PM the game mod
When we reach must lynch unvoting or changing your vote will not be allowed.
It is still night.
