Mafia Database


Role Description:

The Journalist will receive a list of events that occured over night and has to write up a flavor story for the start of the next day phase, reporting on these events.


This role can be either mafia- or town-aligned. Given that the role can be of any alignment and doesn't have any real power, it is essentially just a way for the host to add some flavor to the game. Most commonly, the host will have one deadline for night actions and then a second deadline for the Journalist to have his "newspaper" ready by. The Journalist will most often only report on deaths and maybe hint at which roles and factions were behind these deaths.
