The concepts underlying this game can be difficult to assimilate and rules formats that attempt to cover every possibility are list-like and tediously difficult to read. These rules are written in fluent prose explaining how the game works, how to play and what happens in each phase. Hopefully they will contribute to making AofN more accessible and playable. No attempt has been made to comprehensively cover every scenario but the intention is these should be used as the main rules in conjunction with the official V2 rules as a reference document for exceptions.
Updated with minor wording improvements and rule fix as per Coffeebikes correct summation that I had used the draft v2 rules rather than the final v2 rules in originally writing this doc.
