Re: Official Mafia Role Thread

In my game there's a role that can kill all Australians in the game at once. I'll activate if someone decides to be faggot and spare them.

Re: Official Mafia Role Thread

Mad Bomber should most likely be included in the grand scheme of things.

Re: Official Mafia Role Thread

Some questions for anyone who's played a lot of Mafia, because i'm just out of the loop:

1. What are the best scum roles?

2. Is it common practice to have the Godfather immune to investigation?

3. Best/most unique roles you've seen in a Mafia game?

Re: Official Mafia Role Thread

Honestly depends how they're used but, commonly a mafia will have a setup of GF, rolecop, roleblocker, bodyguard + some roles at the mods discretion. I'd say roleblocker and role cop are the 2 best common mafia roles.

Yeah, godfather is almost always immune to investigation.

i tend to forget innovative roles.

Roleblocker is by far the best scum role. Behind are mafia bus driver and appropriate form of lawyer.

Yes.

Re: Official Mafia Role Thread

I went back and had a look at some games and found a few good one's.

What's the Mafia Bus Driver?

A mafia aligned bus driver. Switching the night actions between two players.

Re: Official Mafia Role Thread

Roleblocker is the most useful. If you have a claimed cop it's hard to kill them for risk of a Bodyguard so block them instead. Re-director works pretty well (strong town role too) where you can choose a player and direct their night action onto a player of your choosing but that's rare.

The problem with giving scum the most 'useful' scum roles all the time is that everyone knows they're the most useful scum roles, so while a mafia rolecop is in theory more useful to the scum team a mafia watcher probably works better in practise as it allows them to identify power roles via night actions AND it allows them to claim it and seem like it's a possible town power role.

Godfather is always immune to investigations but I mean you don't need a Godfather in a game if you don't want to - you can just have the mafia decide on a kill collectively, the Godfather is only there if there are disputes to settle but most teams can work out actions.

Best roles I've seen? Yeah okay, let me think.

I saw a scum role that could make hypothetical night actions (the game had a timeline split) so that when it died those actions would take effect instead of the actual mafia kills - it could have resulted in dead mafia coming back to life, alive players dying and stuff like that. It was really cool.

Also:
At night you can write something in your journal, up to 60 words. When you die, your notes will be posted in your death scene. When you die, you will also be asked to give a final vote that will last the the entirety of the next day(current day if daykilled). You do not have to use this vote.
On Death Abilities:
Vote
Night Actions:
Write

Something like that^ when combined with a tracker would be a cool role combination (reveal your results after death) but would be pretty damn powerful.

Re: Official Mafia Role Thread

Here are some non-standard (I think) roles I used in Batman Mafia. Villains were the town, btw.

Spoiler for Role:


Congratulations! You are Killer Croc, Villain Aligned.

Killer Croc is a mean son of a bitch who lives in the sewers. You are one of Batmanís few enemies with real super powers, but the trade-off is that you are a freak. You are the Commuter. You may PM me to become immune to kills at night, but if you do you will be unable to vote the next day (you can still post). You also can not use this role two nights in a row. You win when all threats to the villains have been eliminated. Good luck.


Spoiler for Role:


Congratulations! You are Robin, Hero Aligned.

Tim Drake became Robin to replace Dick Grayson, who now goes by Nightwing. Youíre still pretty new at this crimefighting thing. Your role is the Sidekick. Once per game, when a hero dies, you may take their role. You cannot become the Godfather. You win when all threats to Gotham have been eliminated. Good luck.


Spoiler for Role:


Congratulations! You are Clock King, Villain Aligned.

A man obsessed with time. Youíre really smart with numbers and organization. You are the Mathematician. Each night you may PM me a number. Any number you want. I will tell you a piece of information about the game that has to do with that number. You can not use the same number twice. You win when all threats to the villains have been eliminated. Good luck.


Spoiler for Role:


Congratulations! You are Harley Quinn, Joker Aligned.

You are Harley Quinn, a former psychiatrist who worked at Arkham Asylum. You fell in love with The Joker and now feverishly defend your puddiní. You would do anything for Mistah J. You are the Therapist. Each night you may PM me the name of a player. They will be unable to use their role. However, if their role is a day role, it will double in effectiveness. Oh, and because youíre a villain, thatís what you show up as when investigated. You win when only Joker aligned players are left. Good luck.

.

NOW OR NEVERMORE
