Mafia Database


Role Description:

The Inventor starts the game with a list of inventions/night actions (e.g. 1-shot cop investigation, 1-shot doctor protection, 1-shot roleblock, etc.). Every night, the Inventor may give out one of their inventions to another player in the game. Inventors are not allowed to use any of their abilities themselves.


This role has several different variations. One variant is to not inform the Inventor what their various inventions will do (sometimes called a Mad Inventor). Another variant is to add new inventions to the Inventor's list as the game goes on. Finally, Inventors may on rare occasions even invent abilities themselves, in which case the host will often provide them with certain guidelines and restrictions. The Inventor might also sometimes receive a list of items that they can mix together to create a new invention.
