  • People often type out their role's in-game description to prove their innocence. This is not cheating, but looked down upon.[1][2][3][4] This strategy has been nullified, as BlankMediaGames has made all role cards visible from inside the game.
  • Becoming a certain role is entirely up to chance, depending on the list of your game mode. Scrolls allow you to increase or decrease these chances.
  • The ideas for the Forger and Vampire roles were originally suggested by the community.[5]
