Mafia Database


Role Description:

The Medium may each night send one message to a dead player and receive one reply from the player.


All communication should take place via the game host. The target's reply is delivered to the Medium at the start of the next day phase. Sometimes, a Medium might be limited to asking only one specific question, or alternately the Medium may be allowed unrestricted communication with their target (similar to the Neighborizer role). An improved Medium might be able to talk with all dead players at night, though this will often be a 1-shot ability. An alternate way to implement the Medium role is to have the Medium target one player every night, and if the targeted player dies over night or is lynched the following day, the Medium may privately communicate with said player. Finally, a very powerful version of this role might once per game be able to allow all dead players back into the game thread for one day phase.
