@Claire386 please read this whenever you can.quick rundown of the game
Town : The "good" guys. Uninformed majority. You only know your role. Wins when all evils are dead. The main way they kill evils is by voting on who gets lynched at the end of the day phase. ONLY VOTE WHO YOU THINK IS BAD AND WANT DEAD.
Mafia : the "bad" guys. Informed minority. More like sneaky. Have a group chat, know all the team roles. Need to convince the thread they are town so that they lynch each other while they also kill them at night. Wins when independents are dead and have parity with town, no longer being minority they can just take everyone out. ONLY VOTE WHO YOU THINK YOU CAN CONVINCE OTHERS TO WANT DEAD, KILL THE ONES YOU THINK ARE THREATS INSTEAD
Indep : third party, on their own, usually need everyone else dead (with some exceptions). HOPE FOR THE BEST, IT IS VERY HARD TO WIN AS THIS. But very funny too.
Common town roles (do not claim these unless Miller or many votes on you) :
Cop : selects a player each night and checks if they are town mafia or Indep.
Doctor : selects a player each night and protects them from mafia night kill.
Miller : looks mafia on cop check despite being town. CLAIM THIS IMMEDIATELY (if you get it, tell the thread you have it)
Tracker : checks a player, sees who they visit.
Watcher : checks a player, sees who visited them.
Common mafia roles (do not claim these ever, except maybe Roleblocker) :
Godfather : mafia role, looks town on cop check despite being mafia
Rolecop : checks a player each night, learns their role.
Roleblocker : stops a player's role from working. Usually mafia has it, but town can have it too.
Strongman : bypasses Doctor and Bulletproof to make kills work.
Ninja : can kill without Tracker and Watcher seeing them.
... These are the basic stuff you will need for most of the regular games. I can go into detail on the most crazy ones later, but please try to learn these first as they will be more useful for future games.
