This guild is a reference guide for anything related to Were-Items (also known as "I am" items).
Were-Items are items with one or more Were-poses that allow you to transform your usual avatar into something else, like an animal or an object.
If you are looking for a specific Were-Item, but don't know how to find it, you can try searching for it through this topic. The Were-Items are organized into different lists, so they can be searched for more easily.
If you're new to the guild, you may want to look through the Rules, About the Guild, and FAQ sections below. You do not have to own any Were-Items to join or participate. If you want to just hang out and talk about anything you want (Were-Items or otherwise), you can try the Hangout Thread.
If you want to help with updating and maintaining the guild, you can sign up to be a Crew member.

About the Guild:
Were-Items: Were-Items have unique poses called Were-poses that can change your avatar into something else. Most Were-poses have 'I AM' printed on their icons, are often named [Were-Item] (i am), or something similar, and are usually the last listed poses in the item. Some Were-Items include: Grunny, Inari's Beads, Hermes' Moon, Kitten Star, and Starmony. Any potions that you have to drink to change your form do not count as a Were-Item or Were-pose.
I've made lists of all of the Were-Items, which I've categorized in different ways to make it easier to search for them. The different topics with lists of them are:
Were-Item List: Species
Were-Item List: Release Date
Were-Item List: Price
Were-Item List: Color
Were-Item List: Alphabetical Order
Were-Item Guides: If you want to know more about a specific Were-Item, I have made some in-depth guides about some the Were-Items. But because there are so many Were-Items, I have not finished making all of the guides, so if you need information on a Were-Item that doesn't have a topic put up yet, you can tell me which Were-Item should get a guide next, either by posting it, or voting in the poll.
What Shows when you are an I Am pose: Most item poses are invisible when a Were-pose is equipped, but some remain visible. Creamy Filling has a thread that lists the poses that are visible with Were-poses, along with some other helpful information.
Gaia's Animated GIFs: Whenever a new Chance Item comes out, there's usually an animated GIF of that Chance Item's grand prize that appears in the Gaia header. Most of the grand prizes of Chance Items are Were-Items, so I thought I would make a list of all the animated GIFs I could find and make. The User-made GIFs section is composed mainly of Were-Item GIFs at this point. I've also made a new section labeled "Were-pose Animation in Virtual Spaces." There aren't many Were-poses added yet, but I plan to add more.
Virtual Chat Room: This guild has a virtual chat room you can hang around or play in. It is only available to guild members, however. You may also need to reload the page, because it doesn't always work the first time.
Also, aside from the Earth Day Forest Stage, it is the only Virtual Space I've found that allows you to have all of your mules (extra Gaia accounts) logged into the room at the same time, without needing another computer or browser, as long as you leave their tabs open (you may need to right-click, and "Open link in new tab" for it work, otherwise, it will just reload the one you have open).
Questing for items: If you want to start a quest thread for an item, or ask for donations, you can use the Questing subforum. The item you're questing for doesn't have to be a Were-Item.
Advertising Were-Animals: If you like this guild, and think it could be useful or fun to other people, you can help make it more popular by advertising it in your signature.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is a Were-Item?
A: A Were-Item, or "I am" item, is an item that has a Were-pose (which is frequently labeled as I am (something), You are (something), etc.) that can make your normal avatar disappear entirely, and replace it with the Were-pose's form. Which means, if anyone else is using the same Were-pose that you are, they should look exactly the same as you, even if your avatar's eyes, hair, skin, etc. are different (assuming you're not using one of the item poses that can be seen with Were-poses, which would be in the background).
Q: What's the difference between a potion and a Were-pose?
A: Were-poses are something you can take on and off. Potions are more long-term, disappearing once they've been drunk. With potions, you can usually still dress up your avatar. But there's also a Were-Item called Mona's Potion, which isn't actually drinkable.
Q: What's the difference between a full-body skin and a Were-pose?
A: If you find a skin that completely covers your avatar, or a Were-pose that looks like it does, there are a couple of ways to figure out the difference: Whether or not you can move your avatar's arms, and the kinds of items you can equip with it. If you can reposition your avatar's arms, or put can clothes on your avatar, it's probably a skin. If your arms remain stationary, and no items seem to be equipping, it's probably a Were-Item. Skin example: Alien Armorskin. Skin-like Were-Item example: [[CENSORED]].
Q: Is it possible to wear any items while equipping a Were-pose?
A: Most items don't show up when a Were-pose is equipped, but there are a few. Creamy Filling has a list that shows which item poses can be worn with Were-poses.
Q: Am I able to participate in the guild without joining?
A: Yes. You can do almost everything that guild members can. You won't receive any guild announcements (but for the most part, I've stopped sending those out anyway, even when I find a new Were-Item). You also can't enter the guild's virtual chat room (but it's almost always empty anyway). Huh. Maybe there's no point in joining at all...? cat_razz
In order to become a Crew member (with editing and reorganizing abilities), however, you would have to become a member first.
Q: I have a question/comment. How do I contact you, Kangit?
A: You can PM me, or post in the forums, depending on your preference. Either way, I will try to address your question/comment as best as I can.
