Throne of Guides
Welcome to the official Throne of Lies Role Guide! This guide serves as a way to inform players on the setup of Throne of Lies. As many already know ToL operates on a fixed set of roles and mechanics. A host is not allowed to deviate from these roles and mechanics when they host a game. When playing a ToL game, many players often refer to the wiki to learn about the game. The wiki is helpful, yes, but as recently noticed, there are many aspects of the wiki that don't translate very well to forum-version. Throne of Lies wasn't originally created for the purpose of playing it on a forum. As such, @Ena and I have dedicated our time to creating a role guide that would operate efficiently on the forum.
Refer to this guide as a host whenever you want to create a Throne of Lies setup NOT the wiki. The same applies to the players, refer to this guide if you want to learn about the roles and mechanics, NOT the wiki.

Game Mechanics
Factions -
There are four separate factions within Throne of Lies: Blue Dragon, Cult, Unseen, and Neutral. The Blue Dragon functions as the main town of the game. They are the good guys. Likewise to town in traditional mafia, the Blue Dragon in ToL do not know each other. The main scum factions are Cult and Unseen. Only one can exist in the game. Both of them possess a conversion and a killing power, essentially operating like a Culatfia in traditional. The notable differences between the two are that Unseen has more variety in converted roles, however, they have fewer members. Unseen caps out at 3 while Cult caps out at 4. The Neutral faction speaks for itself. They have their own wincons to accomplish. Some can win with the other factions, while others need to win on their own.​
The King -
This is the most special role in Throne of Lies. At the start of the game, a player is assigned by the host to be the King. They will be announced as such when the game begins. A coinflip(or some other 50/50 RNG) will be made to decide the King's alignment. He can either be the Good King or the Evil King. Psycho, Pretender, and Neutral King cannot exist at the start of the game. The King's alignment is made unknown to the public. If the King were to die, then during the next day phase, an election for a new King will take place. All game activity will halt until the election is over. The election is split up into two phases: Nomination and Voting. The nomination phase is where players nominate themselves to be King. You cannot nominate other players. Then in the voting phase, players vote amongst the nominated for who they'd like to be King. Nominated players can vote for themselves. It is during the election where it becomes possible for a Psycho, Pretender, or Neutral King to exist as Neutrals can become elected to be the new King. Certain classes like Royals have an advantage during the election as votes on them count for two.​
Classes -
Roles in the game are classified into 6 classes: Special, Offensive, Support, Killer, Investigative, and Social. There is also the supplementary class 'Royal' that is an addition to the above 6. Essentially, a Royal class player will also have one of the other main classes.​

  1. Special - These roles do not belong to another class type due to their abilities that shape the game. These roles are unique, meaning that there can only be one. The King is an example of this.
  2. Offensive - These roles can disrupt others with their abilities.
  3. Support - These roles aid others by healing them or with other supportive abilities.
  4. Killer - These roles can kill.
  5. Investigative - These roles can find information about another player's role.
  6. Social - These roles can interact with another role through a chat system or with other social abilities.
  7. Royal - These roles have royal blood and gain special advantages during an election.
Trials -

Functioning similarly to Town of Salem, Throne of Lies also has a trial system. The primary lynch type used in the game is a majority lynch. Plurality and any other lynch type do not operate efficiently under a trial. Once the majority is reached on a player, a trial for them will be created. This trial is split into two phases: Discussion and Voting. During the discussion phase, the accused player has an allotted amount of time to defend themselves. Other players can respond, however, they may talk about the accused player and ONLY the accused player. Nothing else. After time has passed for the discussion, the voting phase commences and here players are given three options: Guilty, Innocent, or Abstain. Nobody is allowed to talk during the voting with the EXCEPTION of the King. After the voting phase time limit is up, the host counts up all the votes to determine the accused player's fate.​
Logbook -
In their role PM, players may write a logbook. This logbook can contain whatever information they want and upon death, this logbook will be revealed to the public.​
Feedback -

For our forum version of Throne of Lies, feedback will operate differently than what is stated in the wiki.​
  • Players will be told if their action failed at night in the event it actually failed regardless of class. They will precisely receive the feedback "Action fail."
  • Players will be told if they are bleeding. Usually at the start of the next phase.
  • Players will not be told if they were protected at night. However, if they were attacked and protected, they will be told so. They will not be told which role protected them.
  • The Physician will know if their target has been attacked but not if bleeding.
  • When it comes to redirections and bus drives by the Ritualist, Court Wizard, Drunk, and the Sage, if two redirectors target the same player, the one who submitted their action first gets priority.
