Don't kindle flame, don't shed the blood of another, don't run at night.
—The Simple Rules[1]

The Simple Rules were a set of rules that a person had to follow in the Forests of Hell to avoid attracting the attention of shades.[1] Those who broke the Simple Rules were usually quickly killed by the shades.[2]

The Rules[edit]

  • Do not kindle a Flame.
  • Do not shed the blood of another.
  • Do not run during the night.

It was believed that the White Fox could break the Simple Rules because shades would not dare come for her soul.[2]
