Mafia - Roles you might get
« on: April 18, 2006, 01:23:14 PM »

Of course, these roles are just the most basic. More complex roles may be a combination of the above (you could be a Mason-Cop, or a Mafia Roleblocker), they may be variants on the above (the Insane Cop gets the opposite result from a regular cop, or the paranoid cop always finds the person guilty!), or they may be an entirely new creation.




To add to the Beginners thread, here's some common roles:


Town Roles

The Cop
The cop is a townie who has the ability to investigate other players. Each night they may send the game mod the name of someone they want to investigate, and the mod will PM them back and say if that person is guilty or innocent.

The Doctor
The Doctor is a townie who has the ability to protect another player from harm at Night. Each night they may send the game mod the name of a player they want to protect, and if someone tries to kill that player, they will be saved from death.

The Roleblocker
The Roleblocker is a townie with the power to prevent others from taking their actions. Each night the may PM the game mod with the name of a player they want to stop, and if that player submits an action during that night, it will be prevented.

The Vigilante
The vigilante is a townie with the power to kill other players. Each night they may PM the game mod with the name of a player they want to eliminate. That player will be killed.

The Masons
Masons are townies who know each other to be townies. They can talk to each other in private during the Night phase, and will generally be assured of each others innocence.

The Regular Townie
This is the role most players will have. A generic townie with no Night actions.


Non-Town Roles

The Godfather
The Godfather is the head of a Mafia. They may talk at Night with other members of their Mafia. Each night, they must send the game mod the name of a player they would like to eliminate, and which member of their Mafia they would like to carry it out. Godfathers often have one or more Nightkill immunities, and normally seem innocent to investigations by cops.

The Goon
The Goon is a regular member of a Mafia family. They are able to talk to other members of their Mafia family at Night, and will be sent by their Godfather to kill townies.

Other Anti Town Roles

The Serial Killer
The Serial Killer is one of the most difficult roles to play. A Serial Killer is like Godfather without a Mafia, and must eliminate all the other players to win. To balance this he is often given additional strong powers.
A lone gunman who gets a kill at night. Basically he is like a one-man mafia. They only win when they are left alive alone at the end..


The Cult Leader:
Once per night he may attempt to recruit someone into his team. If the person he trys it on with is a townie then he will join the Cult and lose all previous powers he once had. If the Cult Leader attempts to recruit a Mafia member then the Cult Leader will end up killed.If someone is sucessfully recruited then that person will become a Cult member and lose all previous team alignments. The cult can talk at night and become basically an evil Mason group that can recruit. If the Cult leader dies then the whole cult might die, or theymight just stay unable to recruit but still as Cult. They win when only them and their cult remain...

Of course, these roles are just the most basic. More complex roles may be a combination of the above (you could be a Mason-Cop, or a Mafia Goon-Roleblocker), they may be variants on the above (the Insane Cop gets the opposite result from a regular cop, or the paranoid cop always finds the person guilty!), or they may be an entirely new creation.

Here are some more uncommon roles


Town Bounty Hunter, Judge-Jury-Exeutioner:

This character can either choose to investigate someone or use a night-kill actions. Like a mix between a cop and a Vigilante these are very powerful and helpful for the town Team.

Mafia Terrorist
Like any standard Mafia Member but once during the game they can attack someone during the daytime. Both the person attacked and the Terrorist will be killed in the blast.

Bulletproof Townie
Just like any typical Vanilla Townie but cannot be killed at night.

The Mimic

This person mimicks the person of their choice, so a each night you can mimic another player and turn their night action on themselves if they have one. For example, if you mimic player A who is the cop, they investigate themselves and would come back innocent. They though would believe that they had investigated the person they thought. Also a roleblocker would block himself, a doctor save himself and a kill request would end up in the that person killing themself. If you mimic a normal townie then nothing happens
