Screw the rules, use common sense. The theory behind werewolves and the wolf man, as far back as the legend goes, is that a person bitten becomes a bloodthirsty uncontrollabe monster. It shouldn't matter if its a knight or any other character. Go with the flavor of what a werewolf really is

Over the years, certain rules of the game were clarified (see latest FAQ). Maybe can vs cannnot change for ban/command? In other words, the forbidding (and ordering) effects of cards override other (special) abilities and effects. I think Knight being Lycan should attack good characters at night beacuse this effect override others. Otherwise main importance of this effect shall be denied.

Oh no, it's back, haha!
This would have been much easier if they had designed the Lycanthrope Card to be a Character Card, just like the Toad. If at Night it just replaced your normal Character with the Lycanthrope, you would lose your normal abilities at night and this whole question would easily be resolved. Unfortunately, it wasn't designed like that, oh well.

Solving rules of the game is one of the favorite side of Talisman

I cant find anything in the forums reference a Vampire Blade.
What was that all about then?

LoL I was talking about the comic book/movie character Blade, the vampire. He was a Vampire who resisted the vampire curse to do harm, and did good instead.

With this being my first post I do not wish to sound intrusive, but I do not believe can vs. cannot applies here. I believe that rule specifically addresses anything that is optional (can) versus anything that disallows that optional issue (cannot). The Chivalric Knight's ability is not optional, neither is the Lycanthrope's ability, with both being contradictive. From a lighter, roleplaying point of view, I would say the Lycanthrope's ability overrides the Chivalric Knight's. It's merely a moral choice not to attack (but the ability is "forced" so that players cannot play out of character), and I personally do not think morals are that strong as to affect your actions as a bloodthirsty Lycanthrope. From a stricter, rules point of view I would need an official explanation as I do not think the can vs. cannot rule applies here.
