Well, we have around 40 people now, all of which can view the Werewolf forums, right? I forsee new players joining us for our next game.
For this reason, new members, please come see this thread! I'll briefly explain how Werewolf works.
Werewolf is a game of deception. There are typically at least 20 or so players. The majority of players (in a 20 player game, typically around 16) are TOWN players. The other 4 would be WOLVES. Simply put, the Towns are the Good Guys, the Wolves are the Bad Guys.
There are two phases; DAY and NIGHT. During the Day, every player votes on who should be LYNCHED. If someone gets majority votes, they are lynched and removed from the game. Their role will be revealed to everyone, but we'll get to that later.
Of course, it's up to the Town members to lynch the Wolves. If, at any point, more Wolves remain than any other type of player, the Wolves will win. The Wolves will be trying to trick the Town into lynching the wrong people.
During Night, the Wolves get to pick one player in the game to kill. That person will die in the morning, have their role revealed and be removed from the game. A lot of info and clues can be gained from the kill.
You also may get a ROLE. For example, the DOCTOR can protect one person every night. If they are attacked by the Wolves, they get survive. For example, if Jimmy the Doctor protected Alice and the Wolves attacked Alice, there would be no kill.
There's also a common Role called the COP, which can investigate someone every night to find out if they are a Wolf. If they find out someone is a Wolf and claim to everyone, he/she'll probably be killed that night. Because of this, the Doctor will most likely protect the Cop, and so on.
Hope to see you there! =D
To clear up previous confusion from last time we had a new player, Wolves can vote too. Wolves are pretending to be part of the Town, and their vote counts just as much as yours, so don't think you can just find all of the wolves by finding out who can't vote! :PThis

Thanks very much Olinea!
I get the feeling every thread will be stickied, but I'm hoping threads which are discussing the game crop up soon enough. The games in progress will be stickied for handiness.
Alright this sounds like a shitload of fun. COUNT ME IN
WWXI should be over in the next two days, and KRISTOFFA's hosting the next one. IIRC it just features nothing but normal Wolves, Townies and a Doc or sommin' along those lines.
I don't want it to be too complicated :P
