    Triad Liason, it works, how?

    I'm looking at the Mafia Wiki and I've learned about the liason role, but I have a question, what happens if an escort role blocks a liason? Are they unaffected? How does it work with other roles too? Liason and escort seem like pretty good roles. How would you play escort or liason? Would you try to get a bodyguard on you so that you can continue role blocking people? Or, if you were liason, would you try to get the vigilante role blocked so that he can't shoot you?

    There is a setting that can make roleblockers (Escort, Consort, Liaison) roleblock immune. There is also a setting that allows the roleblockers to detect roleblock immune targets. If both are on (as is most common) then the roleblock will fail and the escort will be notified that their target was roleblock immune (RBI for short).

    Escort and Liaison should be played differently as one of them is mafia aligned and one of them is town aligned. Playing Liaison it is usually in your best interest to fake-claim some non-roleblocking role. Because if you claim Escort, you are liable to having a number of problems later on, such as:
    - Not being able to roleblock confirmed town with powerful roles (e.g vig, bus driver)
    - If the godfather dies you will become a Mafioso, losing your roleblock power and therefore be outed sooner rather than later as no one is getting roleblocked anymore
    - Not being able to roleblock the same person over and over again without looking super suspicious for doing so

    In general you should try to roleblock whatever town target you think has a strong night ability, vigs are great because if you can roleblock them after they claim they will shoot someone, the vig looks very suspicious.

    Escort should be played totally differently - you are a weird fusion of a power, invest, and protective role. Power since you're able to self-confirm as a roleblocker which has equity late game when there's only one mafia left making you cleared as town. Invest because most killers in the mod are toggled to be roleblock immune, so rather than preventing a kill, instead you are notified that someone is roleblock immune which gives good indication that they're a killer (or another roleblocker, there's a couple other possibilities too, but I can't remember them right now). And with a little bit of prot role mixed in since roles like Mass Murderer are never roleblock immune, therefore you can nullify their impact on the game if you find them.

    Despite these abilities though, you probably shouldn't be going out of your way to try to get a bodyguard on you. You're liable to die (or be marked for death) when you target 2 of the 3 neutral killers and the bg won't stop it. Not to mention your night action in most setups isn't particularly more powerful than any of the other town roles' night actions, so you shouldn't have special priority for prot roles. Just play a standard game as a townie, revealing important information you gain (e.g you roleblocked someone and there was no MM sound that night, or someone was RBI, or you roleblocked someone that is suspected as SK, therefore they can't be SK, etc) as you go.

    Triad Liaison, it works, roleblock others. If escort role block liaison, depend settings. Block immune, if setting block immune. Block, if setting not block immune. If liaison, will avoid vigilante radar in first place. Escort, easy claim. Block target as you would if Town. Pay attention to Town Prot slots when claiming. Hope english good will clarify if necessity.


    Your friendly neighbourhood Asian.
