I have been playing a ridiculous amount of the mafia web game Town of Salem lately, and as such I wanted to try an open setup forums game based on the same structure of that game. This game will mostly be similar to other forum mafia games, though there will be a few deviations based off of the web game’s rules. If this game is successful, I'll probably create more games in this open format with variations on the roles.

What you must know about playing this game:

Basic Game Information
*This is an open setup game. You will know (almost) the whole list of roles within this game. The list of roles and mechanics of each role is listed below.
*Day One will be slightly abbreviated (about 12 hours long).
*Nights will run for 24 hours.
*Day Two and beyond will run for 72 hours.
*If your role has a Day Action, your action must be submitted before the end of the day.

Hammering, Defense, and Voting
*Hammering does not end the day. Once someone has received over 50% of the votes, a 12 hour defense period begins. The accused is able to bargain for their life and make final pleas in hopes of avoiding their execution.
*During the 12 hour defense period, everyone has the opportunity to PM me with whether they believe the accused is INNOCENT or GUILTY. Votes are not mandatory, you may abstain from voting.
*Once 12 hours have passed, the list of votes of all who voted will be posted and judgement will be carried out. The accused does not have to receive 51% of players voting GUILTY to be executed. If there are 10 players, 3 vote guilty, 2 vote innocent, and 5 abstain, execution will commence.
*If the player is found innocent, the day will continue assuming that 72 hours have not passed since the start of the day.
*If a player is found guilty and executed, the day will end.

Communicating With Other Players
*Mafia Members may ONLY communicate with each other outside of the thread during night phases. At the end of the day, the living mafia members will be given a link to a google doc. This doc will only be open for the duration of the night.
*Other roles that have night communications will be handled in their own way through me.
*If you wish to send a secret message to another member during the day phases, PM that message to me and I will pass it along to the other player. The entire thread will be notified that you sent a secret message.

Night Actions and Last Wills
*As said above, nights run for 24 hours. Actions not submitted within that time limit are forfeit.
*While submitting your night action, it is encouraged (but not required) that you also submit a “Last Will.” Your Last Will can be 100 words or less in length (any last wills longer than 100 words will be truncated at the 100 word limit).
*If you are killed during the night. Your Last Will is posted for the town to read. Think of the Last Will as a diary and last chance to send a communication to the living players.
*Players in a killing role (Mafia/Serial Killer/Arsonist/Werewolf) may also submit a killing note. This note will be posted alongside the information of the player killed in the night.

Victory Conditions
*The game only ends when either the town has eliminated all killing threats to the town or the killing groups control majority of the town.
*Various roles may have their own win conditions and should they achieve their win conditions, the game will continue with them (depending on the role) continuing to play along.

Role Information/Possible Roles

TOWN
Bodyguard
Sacrifice yourself to protect one person from death at night, killing their attacker and yourself. You also have 1 bulletproof vest that you may use to protect yourself that night.
Action Type: Night

Doctor
Heal one person each night, preventing them from dying. You also have 1 self heal to prevent your own death that night.
Action Type: Night

Escort
Distract someone each night. Role-blocking a Serial Killer will force them to kill you.
Action Type: Night

Investigator
Investigate someone for a clue to their role. You will be given 4 possible roles. Possible result groupings: "Bodyguard Godfather Sheriff Transporter" "Escort Serial Killer Veteran Doctor" "Jailor Executioner Vigilante Mafioso" "Lookout Framer Jester Medium"
Action Type: Night

Jailer
Choose someone each day to jail for the night. You may talk to them and choose to execute them. You only have 3 executions, you can't execute on the first night. Executing a town member makes you lose all your executions.
Action Type: Day

Lookout
Watch someone at night to see who visits them.
Action Type: Night

Medium
Speak with the dead at night. Seance a living player once to speak with them the following night. You may only seance when you are dead.
Action Type: Day

Sheriff
Check one person each night for suspicious activity. Possible results: Not-suspicious, Mafia, Serial Killer
Action Type: Night

Tracker
Able to see who a person visits at night.
Action Type: Night

Transporter
Choose two people to switch places with each other at night. You may transport yourself.
Action Type: Night

Veteran
Decide whether or not to alert during the night, killing all your visitors. You can only alert 3 times. This attack bypasses all night defense other than doctor's protection.
Action Type: Night

Vigilante
Choose to take justice in your own hands and shoot someone. If you shoot a Townie, you will commit suicide over the guilt the next night. You only have 3 bullets, and you can't shoot night one.
Action Type: Night


MAFIA
Framer
Choose one person to frame each night. A Sheriff will see the result as a member of the Mafia, and an Investigator will see said target as a Framer or Jester.
Action Type: Night

Godfather
Choose who to kill at night. The Mafioso will attack the target, if there is one. If not, you will attack the target. You cannot be killed by normal night actions. If visited by the sheriff, you will be seen as not suspicious.
Action Type: Night

Mafioso
Choose a target to kill at night. If there is a Godfather, their decision will override yours, and you will attack their target. If the Godfather dies before you, you will become the new Godfather. Action Type: Night


OTHER
Serial Killer
Kill someone each night. If an Escort or Consort role blocks you, you will kill them instead of your target, even if you didn't select one in the first place. If you are jailed but not executed, you will kill the Jailor.
Action Type: Night

Executioner
Trick the Town into lynching your target, who is always a Townie other than Jailor. If they are lynched, you win, even if killed afterwards. If your target dies before being lynched, you will become a Jester.
Action Type: None

Jester
Trick the Town into voting against you. Haunt a person who voted guilty if you are lynched, killing them and bypassing all night defenses. A Transporter can direct the haunt onto someone else who did not vote guilty, but only if you selected that person to haunt.
Action Type: None

There is 50% chance it ends in a lopsided town win, 50% chance it ends in a lopsided nontown win, and 50% chance it is a super interesting game.

Medium can talk to dead players every night while the medium is living. Then once dead, the medium has a one time use ability to talk to one player of their choice at night (they use the ability whenever they choose).

It's a fun way to keep the dead players engaged in the game.

I really like this role. Hell, I'd be happy with any of these roles. I've been vanilla town/mason in the last few games. I want a powerful role haha.
