    How to suggest roles:


    Roles:
    Roles with a * require anonymous accounts
    Roles by type:

    Roles by alignment and name:





    Format:

    Create a new topic in M-FM Parking for your new role, as a place to discuss it's pros and cons. Then, post a link to the topic in this topic.
    Use this template when submitting a new role:
    Code:
    [COLOR="#ADD8E6"]Role Name:[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="#ADD8E6"]Alignment:[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="#ADD8E6"]Game Size(s):[/COLOR] You should specify which game sizes this role is designed to fit, S-FM/M-FM/FM etc.
    [COLOR="#ADD8E6"]Abilities:[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="#ADD8E6"]Win Condition:[/COLOR]
    [COLOR="#ADD8E6"]Intended Purpose: [/COLOR]You should specify why this role was created, and what purpose it is designed to fulfil.
    [COLOR="#ADD8E6"]Meta-Game Implications:[/COLOR] Think carefully about how this affects the synergy of a game.
    [COLOR="#ADD8E6"]Possible Cons:[/COLOR] Be honest here. Not a single role in Mafia is perfect, that's the point of the game. Specify what you think the limitations of the role are, what needs to be looked at, and what roles this would not work alongside with.
    [COLOR="#ADD8E6"]Additional Notes:[/COLOR]

    Don't bother including investigation results. This is for forum games, the host of each game will decide investigation groupings.

    How will Blackmailer work? Not being able to talk in a discussion-heavy game doesn't really work out.
    What can a "demand" be for gypsy?
    What's the purpose of the Gossip? I understand it on a mafia role, but this is a townie.
    I don't see how Matchmaker can work as a town role. Can you explain in what situations this would be good for town?
    Am I going overboard with all these questions?

    Blackmailer just works. Person doesn't vote or speak. Not being able to speak in a discussion heavy game does work and has worked, as it's the point of the role. Works in the mod flawlessly, albeit used less frequently on the forums.

    A demand can be pretty much anything: keep your vote on X, claim your role publically, ect.

    how do you understand gossip as a mafia role, but question blackmailer lol. Some roles fill special niches. Not every game is as simple as town vs mafia. Gossip is one of those roles. If a host wants to make it so silenced person can't vote, then I can be a tool to prevent a scum from voting.

    How is it not good for today. 2 doctor heals, 2 vests, 2 roleblocks, ect. Target someone being attacked while targeting mafia, mafia dies with the victim. There are many pro-town uses for matchmaker.

    you're not going over board at all, just questioning roles that are rarely ever used lol
