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 Lycan is a third party-aligned player who may target a player every night and attempt to guess their role. If they guess the target's role correctly, the target will die, and the Lycan will be immune to daykills and lynches the next day. If they guess incorrectly, the identity of the Lycan will be revealed publicly. The Lycans win by outnumbering all other factions.
