A friends list with 35 friends and all players friended offline

A friends list.

Friends are a feature in Town of Salem. It gives you the opportunity to add players to your own party and enter a game together, as well as send private messages.

The friends list can be brought up in the main menu.

How to add a friend

Players can have up to 500 friends.

Sending a Request:

  1. Look on the top left of the screen. There should be a button with a yellow human figure.
  2. Look on the top right of the screen. There should be a button with that same yellow human figure with a green + sign next to it.
  3. Type in the Username of the person you wish to add, a.k.a. the name they log in with.
  4. Click the "Add" button in the middle of the screen.

Receiving a Request:

  1. Look on the top left of the screen. There should be a button with a yellow bell.
  2. Look on the right side of the screen. Hover over the username of the person who has added you as a friend.
  3. Select "Accept" to become friends or select "Decline" to decline the request.
  • If a request is accepted or declined, no notification is sent to the other user.

Removing a friend

  1. Look on the top left of the screen. There should be a button with a yellow human figure.
  2. Look on the right side of the screen. Click on the friend you wish to remove.
  3. In the chat box, look on the top left of the chat box. There should be a button with that same yellow human figure crossed out by a white /.
  4. Click the "Ok" button in the middle of the screen.
  • No notification is sent to the person who was removed as a friend.

Messaging a friend

  1. Look on the top left of the screen. There should be a button with a yellow human figure.
  2. Look on the right side of the screen. Click on the friend you wish to chat with.
  3. Type your message inside the chat box, then send.

Messages will appear as a notification. Upon logging out, any and all messages are removed and these conversations cannot be recovered. In addition, if a player is not online or is not at the home screen, they will not be able to receive messages. BlankMediaGames plans to change this, though there is no set date as to when this change will occur. If a friend goes offline as you are chatting, you will still be unable to send them messages. 

Light Notes

Beside your friend's name, there will be a circle with varying colors. The color of the light depends on whether your friend is present or not.

  • Green: ONLINE. Your friend is not in a game, invite away!
  • Purple: IN LOBBY. Your friend is currently in the lobby, waiting for the host or whatever they're up to.
  • Yellow: IN GAME. Your friend is currently in a game.
  • Dark Gray: AWAY. Your friend is online and not in a game, but has not done anything for a little while.
  • Gray: OFFLINE. Your friend is not playing Town of Salem right now. 

If your friend owns the Coven Expansion, they will have a red moon around their circle. Coven-Friend.png

Parties

Parties allow friends to chat and enter a game together.

The Host is marked with a 486.png crown at the start of their name. The Host can invite people to their party, 477.png give host or 489.png invite players or 501.png kick people in their party.

People with invite powers have a 498.png arrow at the start of their name. They can invite people.

The Host is also the person who starts the game whenever they wish. If the number of players in their party fits in an existing lobby, the Host and their party will be put in an existing lobby. If the number of players in the party exceeds the amount of free spots in an existing lobby, the party will be put in a new lobby with the party's Host as the lobby's Host.

The people invited are seen in the middle of the screen. Each player will be having an envelope to the left of the player's name. A Blackmailer icon means that the invite has been sent, but they have not accepted/declined it. An open envelope means that they have accepted the invite and they are currently in the party. A black envelope means that they have declined the invite.

If a player owns the Coven Expansion and opens up a Coven party, they can invite players with Coven to join. Should you attempt to invite a player who does not own it, a special message next to the player (who does not own Coven) will appear and say "No Coven." The player you tried to invite does not receive a message telling them that they were invited.

Players who make a Coven Expansion party can switch to Classic Mode if they want, albeit there is no option to switch back to the Coven Expansion party. You'll basically be stuck in the Classic Mode until you make a new party.

How to Create a Party

  • Once you are logged in, select "Play" at the top of the screen. A menu will pop up.
  • At the bottom of this menu, select "Create a Party". You are now the Host of the party.
  • At the top-right of the screen you may select which game mode you would like to play with your party.
  • At the bottom-right of the screen you may select "Invite" to invite players to join your party.
  • Once you've selected players to join, select "Invite Players" at the bottom of the screen to officially send your invitations. Wait for your friends to accept the invitation.
  • Once ready to begin, select "Start" at the bottom-right of the screen. You and your party will be sent to a lobby to play together.

Referring a friend

Refer Box.png

How to refer

  • When a friend decides to sign up for an account, they may refer a person who told them about the game. This may only be done during the signup.


Rewards for being referred

  • When a friend refers you and also makes a purchase using real life currency, your count for referring friends will increase. This purchase may be buying the game, purchasing in-game promotions, and so on.
  • If a friend has referred you before Version 1.2.0, they do not have to make a purchase but rather they must complete 10 games.

For more information, view the official Town of Salem forums.

Referral Codes

As of Version 2.5.0 which was released on November 27th of 2018, premium players are able to obtain referral codes to give out. Premium players are individuals who have spent money on the game.

When a premium user reaches 10 games played they will receive 5 referral codes that they can give to their friends. These codes can be redeemed by a user's friends after they create their account, login, and click the play button. Users will also get 5 extra codes at 25 games played, 50 games played, 100 games played, and 250 games played. This means that a user can get up to 25 referral codes through the life of their account. To claim these codes click the button that looks like hands shaking to the right of the Cauldron button.(reference)

Before receiving codes, premium players must first agree to the terms that their "account may be suspended if a referred user is banned during their trial period".
