Oh when we used to play Mafia in real life we had this role Mirror. And the 2nd role is what I read about back then.
Uhhhh interesting thread. Why did I not see this earlier!
Successor I don't see a problem with this, only that so far most Vigilantes used their power on day one, out of fear they get killed before using it. probably adding
See no problem with the Healthy Townie, like an substitute of normal Townie. adding
The Mirror is pretty similar to the Bomb, just that it is only dangerous for the Mafia. Kind of overpowered. Hmm not sure. Maybe one could adjust it somehow, like it reflecting any ability that is used on it... but that would only be healing (which sort of makes sense, the Doctor being protected by the Mirror when targeting it), blocking (just a wasted move then, except it neglates the ability of the mirror and making it vulnerable to Mafia kills), investigation (really don't know how that should work). OR we can make it work like this: the Mirror targets someone every night, and projects the effect that is done to it on someone else. i.e. killing, protecting, investigation (without the detectives knowing), distracting... only thing bothers me here is that it is an other unvulnerable night character. What do you guys think? ~pending
Exhibitionist as like the opposer of Sickly Townie powerwise. Sort of overpowered, I don't know. The whole game is based on discussings at days, it would take a lot of fun out of it, IMO. /rejecting in this execution

I don't like any of them.
The successor kills some of the strategy behind the vigilante. Not only that, I don't see how it's fair if a mafia takes him down and then there's another bastard with a gun.
Healthy townie is a role that will end up revealed as a townie if a sickly targets him, and I don't like that. Besides, the sickly is already weak enough to have a bastard inmune to it.
The Mirror is a safe PGO, simply OP.
The exhibitionist is a joy killer.
Gonna add some roles that we suggested a long time ago (in the LoL game discussion) later.
I was thinking to alter some roles that I'm not happy with.
How about this:
...and something with the Paranoid Gun Owner having only one bullet in his gun.

Threatener and Knock-Out Champion!!!(Orgz)
Foreign Exchange Student
Ultra Hated Townie (joke)
That's it I guess...

The PGO should kill only someone that tries to kill him (vengeful townie, the last person that voted for him -they both go down-, a mafia, or an insane doctor); not everything that targets him.

I don't understand what "yojimbo hero" means in the Vagabond description.
I don't either... those are Greg's words
It's basically a 3rd party that knows who the mafia is. Kinda like a 1 player lover.
And how is the investigator overpowered? He is infact pretty useless since the Janitor ability has been altered. And finding out a Detective's sanity is only useful if he had the change to reveal some results- so only late in the game.
In the LoL gmae the Investigator screwed up us really hard. We had to kill detectives, prostitutes, doctors, and a guy that didn't let us lie at all. He made the Janitor useless... until we got rid of him. Dunno what changed in the Janitor's ability (at least in the games I played).
It isn't really late game, by day 2/3 you already have people claiming their moves.
I really like the changes you did in the role section btw.

Oh, and don't you think that this thread should go sticky?
yojimbo is a famous movie were a strong samurai comes to town and both factions try to recruit him...in which he is all to obliged to play both sides
somewhat of a 3rd party i guess
Jester: Wins when being killed. /I don't like it, because I think it's way too easy of a task.
Neighbor: Can be of any alliance. It's basically Mason just that they have other roles and don't know if the other Neighbors are not Mafia. /I don't like it at all. What's their point.
Hated Townie: One vote less to be lynched. /I already discussed it with niichan, it is really hard to execute, as it is only possible when there is a tie between Hated Townie and someone else when the time is up. It's not impossible as we had those situations already, when we had to give additional time to break the tie. So theoretically this role can be added.
The Flying Pumpkin That Shoots Laser Beams Out Of Its Ass: It was a 25% bulletproof 75% vigilante that could "aim" to change its kill chances for one kill to 100% on Mafia and 25% on Town. /that's quite hard to get. What does 25per cent BP mean?
...ok I'm too tired for that, continuing tmrw.
I think I understood you (just checked the movie). I'd really like him this way...
...but it's kinda op and really complex so forget about it, lol.

Wins when being lynched. He can't say he belongs to the mafia.
See? ^^ The game goes on even if he wins anyway.
If the hated townie doesn't know he's hated, then I like it.

Ok so, there were 9 more roles (and that's it, we already have the rest) in mafiascum labeled as "normal roles". So I'd like to have them all here:
Gunsmith (can be pro or anti town)
And that's it.
Also, I want to recommend one myself
If someone is interested and wants to check more roles, here's a link with a ton of them http://wiki.mafiascum.net/index.php?...Category:Roles
Like this one
I think I've posted a lot of them already, so I'll stop

dammit I was almost finished typing, then the PC crashed.
Anyway, long story short, will only mention the interesting roles.
Mafia Recruiter - imagine him starting all by himself and first recruiting a whole mafia team of his own choice (in a scenario where the role is altered, that he can recruit anyone, not just normal townies), that could be a really fun game too.
Hypnotist - like it, adding.
Threatener /KO Champ - like it, but too overpowered. I have two version in mind. Either like Org said for the KO Champ, he can do it every second round only, or he can pick one person only which is immobilized by fear until his death. We can do both versions actually, the one being the threatener other KO champ.
Badass Cowboy - love it, adding.
Time Bomb - cool too, but I would alter it so that it only explodes when its time is up, not when it is being lynched.
Pimp - cool too, but too overpowered as it would block two roles each night. 50/50 chance of success can be added to balance that.
Burden - yes, adding.
Bomb Diffuser - yes, good too. I found the bombs got way too cocky in past games, maybe then not everyone would instantly claim it, and just as for the BP mafia needs a counter against bomb too.
Ultra Hated Townie - actually see this happening with some altering. like suicidal or super vain townie, that can't live with himself, if there are any votes upon him by the end of the day.

Jesus can be interesting, if he really gets to be resurrected and the game is not over by then. A confirmed townie that the mafia will be having hard time to deal with.
Everything else, just meh.
What about the spy?
I like the Hypnotist more as a mafia guy tbh.
Besides what you said, I'd also give the Time Bomb a chance to set his bomb in night 2 instead of night 1 (cause seriously, night 1 sucks).
I have mixed feelings with the pimp mostly because we always played with just a prostitute and it would kinda screw their choices. The prostitutes don't know they have a pimp?
I like your comments about the Difusser and the Ultra Hated btw (even if the latter was just a joke lol).

Imo, you should consider the next roles: Bodyguards, Ninja, Jailkeeper, Hunter and Inquisitor.
