Welcome to the main page for the Roles section of the wiki. Here you will find our huge collection of pages about them.

General Information

What is a role?

A role is the specific character or ability user a player plays as in a game of Mafia. Roles are at the very least comprised of a role name, any abilities that role may have, and a Win Condition.

The most common roles are Vanilla Townie and Mafia Goon. However, other roles most certainly exist. At the bottom of this page is a quick listing of fairly well-known roles.

Wiki-Editor Information

All the credit for the automatic sorting goes to Vi, he made an amazing template for this purpose and this page is just here to explain it.

How do I make the page in the first place?

Start by typing the name of the role you want to add in the search bar. This serves two purposes:

  • 1. You'll be able to see if the role page already exists.
  • 2. If it doesn't an option will be shown allowing you to create the page.

What should a role page contain?

A role page should contain an introduction, a section on variants of the role, what the role actually does and some comments on balance and the likes. Look at a few role pages to get a general idea of what it should look like. You should also include Vi's automatic sorter template which is also useful for users to get info with a quick glance at the page via a infobox.

How do I use this template by Vi?

All info complete with instructions and examples can be found here.
