What's a DA going to do for another mafia or even as a townie? That's what a mafia is. We're not ruining your mafias, we're trying to make sure they're balanced.
:-X

Meh. For another mafia, they cant implant ideas or spy to make sure they dont kill their own mafia, and as a townie, they would help the town win... yeah it seems too much.

What would you suggest


Well, you could have an SK inside the mafia trying to kill everybody. Or you could just make a mafia. I dunno. It's up to you, really. Do what dakarian said. Discuss!

Serial Killer


Story with that I could see would be this:

Town = Evil Corporation bent on world power

Mafia = Even more evil group trying to take over Corporation's secrets and power

Serial Killer DA = 007 trying to stop the whole lot of them. :D

Also love the idea that it's all questionable. that they MAY be a DA that's pro-mafia, pro-town, SK, or just not there. 

Only thing to add is whatever you use to pick what roles show up first decide the roles and set up, THEN later decide on the DA.  That way you can be sure you don't accidentally slip some clue to the players. 

I.e. For Parallel, I first decided on the roles, then decided on the mafias.  I did allow myself to reset if things were VERY unbalanced, but overall, it made sure the roles had nothing to do with alignment.


As for the other roles themselves... just make sure to avoid the confirmed townie: a person that can prove they are, with no doubt, town.  I have to thank Pandarsenic for catching a potential one in Parallel: a small change fixed it, but it would've meant a lot of pain if it remained.

Slightly confused: 

CORRUPT and SPIES agents have the same goals? (town win, survive, Secret)
