PLEASE HELP SANDBOX17

Spooky1mon 29d

Hi!!! I made some roles that can hopefully get added to the game and I wondered if some people would be kind enough to give me their opinions on the roles.

I'd like to activate only the best of the best roles but feedback on every one of them would be appreciated :)


( editting this when I make a positive change )

Shovler - https://epicmafia.com/role/57044

Sheep - https://epicmafia.com/role/57028

Squid - https://epicmafia.com/role/57037

Trojan horse - https://epicmafia.com/role/57038

Dog - https://epicmafia.com/role/57040


Please give your honest opinions on them if they are bad or good and then I'll maybe do changes or make different new roles to make the game more exciting :)

Rate them out of 10 if you want :)

Thank you!!!

First role - Armsdealer + tinkerer with snowballs instead of guns, sounds fun, maybe a bit weak but probably stronger than the snowman. sounds fun. 8/10 (btw the E-word might be considered a racial slur in some places, i'm not sure. maybe replace it with Inuit)

Sheep - Don't know about this one, people usually won't know there's a sheep until he's dead and when he's dead the mafia will probably all have bread, resulting in a likely win for the mafia. 3/10 (i don't really like famine roles like baker and turkey)

Parrot - Not sure if i fully understand this one but if anything this will just lead to the mafia talking less during the night in every game which is something i'm not a big fan of. This role becomes kinda useless after N1 because everyone will know there's a parrot in the game so any hostile thirds who are in a meeting together and the mafs will just stop talking at night. Parrot could be kind of useful in situations where someone is gatored or cheffed with a maf/hostile third as they could give information to the town via the Parrot in case they die, however last wills kind of serve the same purpose. 3/10

Squid - Nice and simple, I like it. Might be a bit weak though since the Squid will get discovered and lynched very quickly (especially if more than one person gets poisoned in one night) but if there's no doctor or other protective roles they can cause a lot of damage to the town. Maybe add another mechanic where if they get shot (at night or during the day) the killer gets blinded for a day. 6/10

Trojan Horse - Does the mafia meeting become anonymous for the mafia as well? Or only for the horse? If it's only for the horse this is a very interesting role as there's no easy way for the mafia to know which of their mafia partners is the horse (unless there's a spy). The strategy would probably be for the mafia team to split their votes across 2 different players to find out whose vote doesn't count. I like this. 9/10 (On second thought someone will probably come up with an easy "horse test" which will make this role dead in the water. For example: all the mafs type something in alphabetical order (mafia whose name starts with the letter A goes first, etc...) so unless the horse gets very lucky they will quickly get found out and killed n1. Still a clever role though.)

Dog - Kind of an overpowered Angel with some other interesting mechanics, sounds cool. 8/10


Also gonna plug my own role idea here, the Vampire, basically a daytime werewolf with some different mechanics https://epicmafia.com/role/57031

The mafia meeting is only anonymous for the horse, the horse can't see the names of the other mafia. The mafia can still see everyone their names like normal.

As for the vampire I already activated another role with that name because I got a lot of feedback on it, I only posted the roles I didn't activate yet.

https://epicmafia.com/role/56873 -> if you want to check it out

Thank you for your feedback!!! More feedback from other players is welcome and I'll make more and better roles.

Ya this role will probably get destroyed by horse tests like i mentioned, but the idea is cool.

I like sheep, but agree that there should be some limitations, like if the sheep is killed it doesn't had out bread or it doesn't hand out bread to killers

I'm not sure I like sheep because with baker you can at least attempt to suss out people who you think are mafia and not give them bread. With sheep it's completely arbitrary (it's not like they'll lure people into visiting them during the day lol), both for the sheep (wrt not doing anything active in game, apart from trying to get killed so they can start a famine) or the other players (Sandbox games rarely last more than 3 days anyway so the chances of the famine actually having an impact on others is small). I think it could be interesting in main games but would just contribute to the gt fool anarch etc. noise in sb.

I love squid though.

You can disable horse testing by preventing mafia from being able to talk while Trojan Horse is still there.

They can't horse test anyway because the horse still has his one ability to activate and as long as the horse doesn't press it the night won't end.

They can't test the horse because everyone is anonymous.

I changed the Eskimo to the Shovler and I changed the sheep.
