Tutorial[edit | edit source]

If you are new to the game, your guide will greet you and introduce himself as a Serial Killer. In the mandatory tutorial, you will be playing with eight NPCs, plus yourself. When you get to the role wheel, your role will be Serial Killer. Each NPC will be called Player with a number after it, with numbers two to nine, in words (eg. Player Two).

The game events set-up[edit | edit source]

All the roles in the role wheel will have a chance of 11% and lots 10/90 (x1).

  • N1: The guide will tell you to kill Player 2 (Medium)
  • D2: Medium dies to you, and Mayor (Player 3) dies to a member of the Mafia. Player 4 will claim Sheriff and try to get the Mafioso lynched. Another player agrees with him. The guide makes you vote him up and vote guilty on him.
  • N2: The Jailor jails you that Night, and asks you for your role. The guide tells you to claim Doctor to avoid being executed and allowing you to kill the Jailor. In this part, you type, "I am the doctor." After typing that, the Jailor says he believes you, following with his death.
  • D3: The Jailor dies to you, and the Bodyguard kills the Godfather in a duel, also making the Bodyguard die, leaving the Sheriff, Doctor, and you.
  • The Sheriff says that they need to find the Serial Killer, and the Doctor claims his role. The guide makes you claim Doctor to the Town, needing to say that same thing as you said to the Jailor. Once you say it, the Sheriff says he does not know who to believe, but stills vote the real Doctor, whilst the real Doctor votes you. The guide makes you vote for the Doctor and lynch him.
  • N4: The guide gets you to kill the Sheriff (the last Townie) and you win the game after that.
