So the game ends. Congrats for [censored for suspense] to win!

I'll state things that happened here, maybe also add thoughts and then reveal the winners.
[+] Spoiler
Start of the game:

1 - MurderWeasel - Witch
2 - Yugikun - Minion
3 - Polybius - Stalker
4 - Bikriki - Troublemaker
5 - dmboogie - Mason
6 - Primrosette - Mafioso
7 - DuckyB - Mason
8 - Imehal - Fool
9 - Frogue - Hunter
10 - Grim Wolf - Sentinel
11 - penguin_alien - Curator
12 - C1 - Cop
13 - C2 - Traitor
14 - C3 - Robber
That was a fun setup, though it was too...clear, I think. Next time I host, I'll put a village idiot in there for sure. Maybe Bik not being able to swap himself would've helped as well.

PMs:

-

Hey Toben,

you're the Witch! You can (but don't have to) choose a center role to view it. If you choose to view that role, you have to exchange it with another card (including yourself), except other center roles.

Please send me whether you want to check C1, C2 or C3 or not! And also send me a name of a person you choose to switch it with.

You win if a Mafia member has been lynched. Or whatever your win condition is the next day.

-

Hello Yuggles,

you are the Minion! Polybius and Primrosette are the Mafiosi.

You win if either a town member (or you) are lynched. Or whatever your win condition is the next day.

-

Hey, Polybius,

You are the Stalker and Mafia with Primrosette. You may not communicate during this night, you just know that the other one exists.

You may get to see another player's role. Please PM me another player's name to see their role.

You win if a town member is lynched. Or whatever your win condition is the next day.

-

Yo, Bikriki,

You are the Troublemaker. Fitting? Anyways, you may exchange the card of two players (but won't know what the roles are). It can be any players, including yourself.

Please PM me two names whose roles I can exchange.

You win if a mafia member has been lynched. Or whatever your win condition is the next day.

-

Beep, boop, boogie,

You are Masons with DuckyB! You may not communicate, you just know who the other Mason is.

You win if a mafia member has been lynched. Or whatever your win condition is the next day.

-

Hey, Primrosette,

You are a Mafioso. Your partner in crime is Polybius. You may not communicate, you just know who the other mafia member is.

-

Hello, Plush Empress,

You are Masons with dmboogie! You may not communicate, you just know who the other Mason is.

-

Hey, Ime!

You are the Foooool. You win if you die. If you still are the Fool tomorrow.

Hey, Frogue!

You are the Hunter. If you are lynched, the person you voted will be killed as well.

You win if a mafia member has been lynched. Or whatever your win condition is the next day.

-

Hey Grim Wolf,

you are the Sentinel. You may place a Shield on any player except yourself. A Shield means no one can move or view that player's card.

Please PM me who you want to shield.

You win if a mafia member has been lynched. Or whatever your win condition is the next day.

-

Hello, penguin_alien!

you are the Curator. You may give an Artifact to any player of your choosing. You may not know what that Artifact is, but everyone will know that said player received an Artifact. The receiver will know what artifact it is. Artifacts override cards.

These are the possible Artifacts:

Gun: The player with the gun turns into a mafioso
Blue Shirt: The player turns into a plain villager
Fool: Player turns into a fool
Rifle: Player turns into hunter
Crown: Player turns into a prince
BG: Player turns into a bodyguard
:D: You are silenced and cannot talk. But hey, you can write as many smileys as you want. No dongers tho, just the ones zetaboards gave us.
Box: Nothing's in the box. Nothing happens.

Please PM me who you want to give an artifact to.

You win if a mafia member has been lynched. Or whatever your win condition is the next day.
I hope I was clear in these PMs and did not create confusions. Also, next time I host this, I should probably let the mafia members, minion and mason know their role in the first PM, but know their partners after the Sentinel has been played. It would've definitely be more fun if the shield would've affected a mason or so and then the other mason not knowing the role. This would've made it more fun than dropping information in the starting PM.

I Sentinel - Grim shields Yugi
II Mafia - There were 2 mafiosi awake, so nothing happens
III Stalker - Polybius investigates Frogue (result: Hunter)
IV Minion - Knows mafiosi
V Mason - Know each other
VI Cop - Nothing, Center Role
VII Robber - Nothing, Center Role
VIII Witch - MW checks C2 (result: Traitor), then swap with Prim
IX Troublemaker - Bik changes roles with Paige
X Curator - penguin gives artifact to Ime (Random artifact: Crown) [Ime turns into the Prince]
I like the night actions of the Witch and the Curator specifically.

That made Poly his only ally. Which could've been good for him, as the chance of there being a mislynch was higher. But Toben made a push on him before the deadline, making it hard for him to win.

Finally, the votes

The Town!:

penguin, Bik, Paige, Toben, Frogue, Grim Wolf, boogie, Prim and Imehal

Polybius and Yugi lost :c
This could've been fun I think by being more chaotic. It was not that town-sided, because of the open roles. Though I wish more people would've lied. The game is more fun if you think you could been swapped with mafia. If I had realised that Bik should've swapped 2 other cards or there was a Village Idiot, everybody would be more insecure about their roles and might've lied more. Maybe I should've limited it to 1 week to make things more tense.

Sooo, thoughts? Should I do another one in the future? Did you enjoy the game?

I liked it a lot. Of course, it's worth noting that a. I made a really silly mistake due to misunderstanding how the game worked and b. I lied a lot after because of that. The end of the game was a pretty tense moment of WIFOM from my point of view, because I thought that it had become pretty clear what I'd done (Penguin laid out all the possibilities and noted I should claim for anything but a traitor swap, but I hemmed and hawed to try to obfuscate that a little).

With Prim swapped to traitor, things became very tricky because she had to guess if the rest of scum would figure it out or not. If they did, they could drag her back to their side (and thus she should lie and point the finger at a townie), but if they did not she had to actually out them. I was trying to keep that conundrum from becoming apparent, both so that Prim would take a town-favorable course of action and so that she wouldn't get screwed by eating a scum vote and being forced onto the losing team anyways.

I really had no idea what to do after Prim revealed me.

I honestly feel like you got dealt a really rough hand there in part because of a lot of bad luck and coincidences. If I hadn't randomly swapped the other scum member a town role, or if there'd been a bit more time for paranoia to play out, I think things could've gone a lot better for you. It was just sort of a confluence of a normally terrible choice happening to land in a decent place and of the site struggling a bit with how to approach activity/the deadlines.

That said, I'd totally love to play one of these again. I like how speedy they are.
