Role Description:

The Neighbors are a group of players that are allowed to communicate privately with each other outside of the game thread, though they do not know each other's roles.


Neighbors, unlike Masons, do not know each other's roles. I.e. it is not guaranteed that all members of a neighborhood are town. Ideally, the alignment of a Neighbor should be as random as any other player in the game. The fear is that hosts that normally only use Masons will be "read" by the players if they suddenly use Neighbors because they want to have a town/mafia pair (often due to flavor reasons) while avoiding the controversy of having them be Masons. One way of counteracting this is by deliberately making sure, as a host, to use town/town Neighbors from time to time.
