Lets say its a 2p game. Player red starts a turn with 6 unassigned hunters (and an elder rank 6) and player green with 3 (and a rank 6 elder) .Flipping the event card, there is elder die rolling , killing green elder. After that there is chaos, so player red loses 3 and green losses 2. After chaos comes wanterlust event, so according to rules player green changes the last green unassigned hunter for a wanterlust red from the pool. His game is ended having a red cube useless... Is that right? Should i apply wanderlust rule in this case? I find it very cruel, becoming a lazarus species in phase one of a single turn...

Maybe I'm wrong, I'm just learning to play, but I think wanterlust hunters are added to the other player's unassigned hunters.
It's not a "change" it's an "add".

I agree with Isrraka. /edit/ The wanderlust rule represents hunters wandering away from a group with no effective leader, and joining another group peacefully. This is the reason there is no replacement.

Also, remember that vocabulary disks protects from chaos (if the number of hunters is same or less than the number of vocabulary discs).

Sometimes, everything about this game is cruel.

Thanks to all for your replies. For my first two play sessions i completely forgot the first part of 'chaos immunity' rule and also messed how wanderlust works. Neanderthal is great fun to play and i had added much more cruelty than the initial design and intention!

This - missed that in my first run-through, safe to say there was a lot of avoidable chaos related Deadpool movement...
