You're in detention at magic university on the night of the full moon. How will you protect yourself & your friends when someone wolfs out? A Wolf by Any Other Name is a collaborative improvisational party game about magic school students in detention on the night of the full moon. Moonrise is inevitable, and that means trouble for everyone unless the werewolves in the room are able to collect the two ingredients to create the Romulus Lunar Shield potion. If a lycan can create and quaff a successful Romulus potion before moonrise, they can resist the transformation. But the ingredients are scattered, and expensive. Some are expired or fraudulent. It's a race against the moon to save yourself and your friends from the danger and contagion of lycanthropy. Lycans not only can harm others and themselves, they can also be ... gasp! ... expelled!

The evening started out with the greatest intentions. A few relaxed pints, lively conversation, and a good old-fashioned bar brawl.

All things being equal, it should have been a classic dust-up, forgotten by the morning. But no. Things escalated... Premade character sheets featuring the characters from Rat Queens comics will be used.
