This page is sort of an index or table of contents to information about the game and how it works.

NOTE: If you want to be surprised as you play the game, you may choose to NOT look at some of these topics. Personally, I don’t think they spoil the game… merely prepare you for the game (or help you decide if you wish to Late Pledge or not). Much of this is like an online rule book.
