    Can you fill us in a bit more here? I'm a bit hesitant to casually just let it have vaguely described access to my personal information.

    For the moment, the developers are working on a login system that doesn't involve the use of Facebook. For more details, you can have a gander at their kickstarter I just linked up in the first post. There are also the Let's Plays you can watch for yourself. Sorry for being vague, it was late last night when I posted this after all the excitement from playing ToS. >D

    So basically it's online Mafia?

    Having a blast so far. Useful trick if you are a serial killer or member of the Mafia is to pick popular woobieish character names and then roleplay your character. I slaughtered everybody under the handle of "Fluttershy" all the while gushing about how confused and scared I was and begging people to protect me. (I also threw my Godfather under the bus in the endgame to divert suspicion from me and to get promoted. That is another useful trick.)

    Inspired by Mafia is what the indeed creators said.

    If I'm a towny, I usually keep my will as a journal of all my suspicions and important evidence for people to see if I'm killed. If I'm a mafia, I usually get my guys/gals to wait while we patiently let the SK do all the work for us, just to make sure our movements aren't traceable, before we make the final move.

    Overall, my favourite role I think is jailor, seeing as how you can privately ask the people you wish to execute or protect questions in private. Then there's the use of jailing someone as protective custody if you know they're someone like a Doctor or Investigator. Such tactics. Wow.

    Varth I'm so glad you decided to have a career in writing and not murder.

    I only got to play one game before the webpage crashed, but it left me wanting for more! I was a bit skeptical with the facebook access stuff but since they are planning to make it optional, and the fact that I still can use the application privately gave me enough reasons to play this cute little game.

    Also, you know you suck at being an investigator when you are hanged after the first murder.

    I love this, it's so much fun. Reminds me of that board game called Cluedo.

    No.


    It would be cool if the game had dedicated servers in the future, so maybe we could do a DQ ToS lobby.

    If that happens and Varth is Serial Killer or Mafia, then may whatever deity have mercy on our souls.

    I'm more so concerned if "Victory" became an SK or Mafia.

    You should also fear my Jester and Executioner. >: )

    As good guys go I am a big fan of Escort. Partly for the femme fatale class flavor but also because it is really easy to systematically identify allies beyond a doubt, since anybody who you sleep with on the night of a murder has a perfect alibi :3 Once you have established trust you can tell each other your roles and begin organized teamwork, which completely negates the Mafia's advantage. All my best games as a good guy have involved me becoming the leader of an Escort-managed network.

    Also you can identify the serial killer really early as an Escort through martyrdom, since the serial killer is forced to murder you if you sleep with him; you can record every person you visit in your will, and write "IF I GET KILLED BY THE SERIAL KILLER IT WAS PROBABLY THE LAST NAME ON THIS LIST" and then even when your allied townies are pretty dumb they will usually get the idea

    What most people usually do with the last will is either type something funny/sad or put a register of their night activity.
    E.g: "N1:Visited Watermelon" and include whether the suspect is clean or not.

    Also, roles have nothing to do with winning, I've managed to win as a Doctor because I was in a two-man team with an Escort (we were the last good guys left). The GF and the SK never stood a chance.

    The amount of damage you can cause just by saying the opposite of the person who's trying to figure everything out via investigative procedure is hilarious.

    There's nothing more satisfying in this game than randomly blaming people and turning out to be right.

    I have decided to constantly play the persona of Pepperjack the Pimp. I am able to win so many people to my side with ALL CAPS RANTS and wild accusations. I win the loyalty of all and those who oppose me do not last long.

    (Also I played as a veteran and killed a serial killer and two mafia members in one night after drawing their aggression with my mad ramblings and chaotic finger pointing. Was pretty great.)

    I just won a game as a doctor with the help of another doctor by just endlessly healing each other and voting random people out of the game.

    Also, I played in character as Dave Strider the whole time for good measure.

    Town of Salem now has the seperate account feature as promised.
    Least it'll give the NSA a little less to look at (well, not that'd care, they already know everything about everyone virtually).

    One time I gave myself name Jack The Ripper. I was a Doctor. In the first night, I was killed by a Serial Killer.

    This is more ironic than Starbucks full of hipsters.
