Multiple deaths may occur during a night

In Town of Salem, "death" is the removal of a character from the game, either at night by a killing role, being lynched by the Town during the day, or leaving the game, which is shown as "committing suicide". In all cases, the player who has been "killed" will have their Last Will be revealed to the Town if they have one (Your Last Will will NOT be shown to the Town if you were cleaned by a Janitor or stoned by a Medusa). If they were killed at night by a killing role, a Death Note may also be shown.
  • If you die, you will join the graveyard, where you are unable to talk to anyone alive. You may, however, continue to speak with anyone else sent to the graveyard during both day and night, and with any living Mediums, at night.

Death at Day Edit

Players that die during the day are lynched, or voted to be killed by the other members of the Town; once someone has been voted guilty, they die the moment their Last Words timer expires. Death by lynching cannot be prevented in any way if they have been voted guilty, your role defense does not matter.

Death at Night Edit

You Died!

You died!

There are many causes of death at night. In most cases, the person died to some sort of nocturnal killing role like Godfather, Potion Master, Serial Killer, Werewolf, or Vigilante. Depending on who a player visits at night, they may also die to roles like Veteran, Crusader, Ambusher, or Medusa. Most causes of death at night can be prevented by a Doctor healing the player on the night they were attacked.

  • When a player dies overnight, their screen flashes bright red quickly, and their role card vanishes permanently until they are revived. You are also unable to edit your Last Will to change the view that other players see it as. The method of killing you at night (such as from a member of the Mafia or a Serial Killer) is shown, along with the final message underneath all other messages: "You have died!"

Suicide Edit

Suicide commonly means that the player left the game at some point. This is usually frowned upon, especially when players with roles deemed particularly useful (such as Mayor, Doctor, and especially Jailor) leave. If a Vigilante shoots a Townie and they die, the Vigilante will be forced to commit suicide (without quitting the game). Additionally, a Jester can choose to haunt a living person who voted guilty or abstained on them, (and they get lynched) which will be described as committing suicide from guilt, or haunted, rather than being killed.

  • Leaving the game produces a message saying: "He/She apparently committed suicide."
  • Dying from shooting a Townie produces the message: "He/She died from guilt."
  • Dying from lynching the Jester produces the message: "He/She died from guilt over lynching the Jester.'

Notifications of Death Edit


Almost all notifications of death (excluding, "They were also killed by a Veteran.", "They were also killed by a Bodyguard", "They were staked by a Vampire Hunter", and "They were bitten by a Vampire.", and all extra death notifications from roles in Town of Salem - The Coven (DLC))

Depending on the circumstances of death, several different messages will appear whilst the dead are announced to the Town. There are three different message categories which appear; who has died, the amount of ways they have died, and how many roles participated in their killing.
  • Note that if a player is executed, only the Jailor and other Unstoppable-level attacks will appear (such as an Arsonist ignition). Any role with a Powerful attack or lower won't have their death notification appear.
