Here are some ideas for future GM’s to use in games. If you have any ideas to add here, leave a comment on any GM-posted page, or PM any GM.
- Crime drama
- Magic / Fantasy
- Robots (SJM6)
- Video games (SJM5)
- Ghostbusters / Haunted house (SJM4)
- Reality show / game show (SJM7)
- Slasher movie
- Heaven / Hell / Purgatory
- Doctor (hard): Doctor cannot protect themselves.
- Police (hard): Police is only told whether a target is sided with innocent or mafia. Third party roles appear innocent.
- Protection item: Replaces the doctor. Each innocent gets only one protection item, usable on any night. It applies only to oneself, and protects against any night attack.
- Witnesses: Replaces the police. Each innocent can investigate only one person, on any night.
- Freemasons: A small group of innocents who all know each other, and know they are all innocent.
- Assassin: An innocent who can choose to kill one person during the night phase.
- Lawyer: Selects a target at night. If the target is the top vote the next day, they are not eliminated.
- Lawyer (mafia): Can choose a fellow mafia member (not themselves). That night, they will appear innocent to cops.
- Godfather: A mafia which appears innocent to cops.
- Reviver: Can bring a dead player back to life.
- Bulletproof: Invincible at night.
- Thief: At night, steals another player’s role. The victim then becomes the thief.
- Teams: Multiple mafia factions. Separate victory conditions for innocents and either team, who work against each other.
- Tournament: Related to teams. Several small games run at once. The winners of each team move on and combine with another set of winners, and roles are reset. Narrows to one final game.
- Fool: Third party role. Wins if they are lynched. Game continues.
- Lovers: Can be determined randomly or selected by a “cupid” player. They win if they both survive by game’s end. If one dies, the other dies out of grief.
Protection variation: If someone is attacked but protected, that target is revealed to have been attacked, thus declaring them innocent. Can help either side. Innocents know an innocent, while mafia can attempt to kill them again to remove information.
