Settings are options about how a card looks and behaves.


It is easy to confuse the terms Rule and Setting in Wagn; they are closely related.  For any given setting, there may be many rules.  For example, there is only one *autoname setting.  But there may be many rules about which cards should be autonamed.  See the Rule card to learn more about how to use Wagn Rules.


Note: the +howto video is badly out of date and thus removed from this page.  We hope to update it soon.
