Mafia Database


Role Description:

The Sorcerer may each night investigate someone to learn whether or not they are a Cop.


This is essentially a Cop that can only investigate other Cops. It's commonly used as a mafia-aligned role and sometimes the Sorcerer might even be disconnected from the mafia team (similar to a Traitor). If this latter variant is used, the Sorcerer will sometimes have to choose between either investigating someone new or relaying one of their investigation results to the mafia each night.

Role of the Day

The Illusionist starts the game with 1 gun (1-shot day vigilante shot). Once per game on any night, the Illusionist may choose a target. If the Illusionist fires their gun during any day phase after having chosen a target, the gun will be revealed as having been fired by the Illusionist's target.
