  1. Follow the Global Rules as well as the Forum Game Rules, or else.
  2. Activity and cordial behavior towards your fellow player is expected.
  3. Have fun!

Phases And Timing

  • The game will begin on the 25th of June. Rolecards will be sent out before then.
  • Day phases will last for 24 hours. Night phases will last for 24 hours.
  • All phase changes will happen at 6:00:00 PM
  • During the night, the deadline for action submission is 2 hours before SoD (4:00:00 PM). Any action submitted after that time will NOT be processed.
  • During the day, actions will open 1 hour after the start of the day (7:00 PM) and close 1 hour before the end of the day (5:00 PM). Day actions may be pre-queued for a specific time.
  • All ITA sessions will last for 1 hour exactly. If you don’t know what that is, consult the next section.
    • Session 1 lasts from 8:00 PM9:00 PM
    • Session 2 lasts from 3:00 AM4:00 AM
    • Session 3 lasts from 2:00 PM3:00 PM
  • Events may begin at any time, but will be scheduled mainly for times of high activity. Events are subgames where players may win prizes, or even death.

In-Thread Attacks (ITAs)

  • All players may use In-Thread Attacks during an allotted ITA session, which will begin on day 2. ITAs allow players to publicly attempt to kill other players.
  • By default, you have 1 ITA shot per day, and it has a 15% chance of hitting. If a shot hits, usually, the person hit will die, and flip. Various abilities might modify these chances, give you extra chances, or allow you to survive being hit.
  • To fire an ITA shot, simply @[host account] with some variation on **/ITA [player]**.
  • At some point, ITAs will be disabled. This will be whenever the hosts deem fit.


  • There is no majority, only a deadline elimination. Whoever has the most votes at the end of the day will be eliminated.
  • All votes must be in the form of [vote]player[/vote] or [v]player[/v] to be counted. Unvotes should be formatted as [unvote][/unvote]. To guarantee that the votecount bot counts your vote correctly, it is best to type the player’s full username, including correct capitalization; however, nicknames may still work.
  • You may self-vote. Along with this, no-elimination is a valid vote. In cases where no-elim and another vote are tied at the end of the day, no-elim will have priority in the rand.
  • Tied votes will result in a player being eliminated at random from among the tied players.
  • MyLo (mis-eliminate and lose) and LyLo (eliminate or lose) will not be announced, and votes will not be locked. This is not in place for a final 3 scenario.
  • You may see the votecount as of a specific post by clicking the hammer icon on that post.

The Setup

All roles in this game are based off a User of FoL, and will feature Abilities & Flavor based on that user, their personality, and memorable moments from their time on the site. These Abilites will be summed up by a Role Name.

You MAY claim: You may NOT claim:
Your assigned User, but doing so may carry mechanical risks. Your Flavor text, a short paragraph describing the person your role is based on, either directly or paraphrasing it.
Details about your Abilities, so long as they are paraphrased. The name or exact text of any of your Abilities.
Details about your Role Name, so long as it is paraphrased. Your exact Role Name.

This game is Closed. The exact set of abilities, win conditions, and factions in play is unknown. However, the following details are known:

  • The uninformed majority faction is called the Town, and its win condition is this:
    • You win the game when the Mafia and all other threats to the Town have been eliminated.
  • The primary informed minority faction is called the Mafia, and its’ win condition is this.
    • You win the game if no more threats to the Mafia exist or nothing can prevent that from happening.
  • Other factions, as well as Neutral roles with their own win conditions, may exist.
  • This game is Role Madness; every player has their own, unique ability.
  • No alignment conversion, false flips, game-ending jesters, or direct lies in your own rolecard. Everything else is fair game.

Example Rolecard


You are Arete, Town Nerdy Flavor Cop. Known for your knowledge of history, lengthy analytical wallposts, and generally being an absolutely prodigious dork beloved by all, for this game, you will serve as an example rolecard not dealt to any player.

acksually, i’m alive, you can tell because i am not dead (Passive): The first time you would die at night, you survive.

Historical Studies (Even Night, 2-shot): Visit a player. Learn the birthday of target player’s User on the French Republican Calendar.

You win the game when the Mafia and all other threats to the Town have been eliminated.


If you wish to sign up with an alternative account, please consult the hosts beforehand. Alts will only be allowed on condition of their main account being publicly known and stated on the playerlist. If you are unsure which account qualifies as your main, consult the hosts.

Feedback is going out. Day start will be slightly delayed, apologies.

If you get no feedback, assume you slept peacefully. If you believe this is a mistake, you can ask

all feedback is out, if you believe you are missing feedback let us know

Trivia answers:

Q1. As of June 25, 2023, of users who have posted on FoL, which user has the highest likes received:post ratio?

A1: @neopest (15:1)

Q2. This user has posted the most total posts on Fortress of Lies. ( Does not include posts from the old forum. )

A2: @Atlas

Q3. This account exists on Fortress of Lies and was created prior to June 1, 2023, but has never posted.

A3: (Many acceptable answers, e.g. @dunya)

Q4. Not counting players who have ever had moderator or admin powers on the current FoL site, their alts, and host accounts, which account was the first to join Fortress of Lies?

A4: The intended answer was @Geyde (join date: November 16, 2021). However, @discobot technically has an earlier join date, and although she has admin powers, she is not a “player with admin powers,” so under the literal wording of the question she is the correct answer. I accepted both Geyde and discobot.

Q5. This FoL user has represented a forum mafia community other than FoL at the Mafia Championships, but has never represented FoL (either the old or the new site).

(Many acceptable answers, e.g. @Ruby, @Marluxion)

Q6. This game was “won” by a Revenant.

A6. Worst Role Tournament (FINALS) . Some of you also submitted archival games, which were also acceptable.

Q7. Provide a link to a single reply ( cannot be the first post of a thread ) with more than 1000 words of text, as measured by https://www.charactercountonline.com/ .

A7. (Many acceptable answers.)

Q8. Provide a link to the single reply on FoL ( cannot be the first post of a thread ) with the most likes as of June 25, 2023. ( If you link a post from the archive, any post with an equal or greater number of likes to the most-liked reply is acceptable. )

A8. Weekly Monday Discussion #2 - #17 by Chloe. No other posts on Fortress of Lies satisfy the conditions in the question. A lot of you also sent me “like this post if kat is dumb” which is fine and valid.

Q9. Provide a link to a forum mafia game that was won only by a neutral role.


Q10. Provide a link to the thread with the most total all-time views.

A10. Poor Approximations of Catgirls - Thread 1

Tiebreaker: As of this post being posted, how many messages are there in the FAM3 hosting Discord?

Tiebreaker Answer: 11,587 (literally every single one of you lowballed this one)

Hi! To find out what I can do, say @discobot display help.

shut up discobot

The Mechanical Clarifications post in the first thread has been updated.

@Garfooled has died! They were…


You are Jarek, Mafia Realistic CPR Doctor. You have twice been an even-night CPR doctor, but when you think about it, the flavor doesn’t really make sense. What kind of CPR doctor can’t tell the difference between a healthy, conscious person, and someone bleeding out from a gunshot? Why does it kill uninjured people, but do zero damage whatsoever to people who were at risk of death? This game, you’re going to set the record straight.

You begin the game with 0 Medicine Charges.

fun fact: the average EMT job in the US pays $42,334 per year (Day, Immediate): Burgle target player, and steal a charge if able. Charges stolen this way become Medicine Charges.

Crack Ribcage (Night): Consume 1 Medicine Charge and set target player’s base ITA accuracy to 0% during the next Day. (ITA accuracy buffs still apply.)

You win the game if no more threats to the Mafia exist or nothing can prevent that from happening.

@Vulgard has died! They were…


You are Jane, Town Analyst. Although you rarely play anymore, you typically have sharp and accurate reads – usually demonstrated in the spectator chat of any given game. You got the chance to demonstrate this in action during the recent Wild West FM game, when you correctly solved the game in F5 after replacing in shortly before and eliminated them both. This game, we’re giving you a role that plays to your strengths.

Retrospective (Passive): Whenever a player you fired an ITA shot or ended a Day voting for dies, and is not a member of the Town, gain 1 Towncred Charge.

Accusation (Night): Roleblock target player. This action is modified based on your Towncred charges:

  • 1+: Additionally, learn who the player would have visited.
  • 2+: This action cannot be protected against.
  • 3+: This action resolves before all other actions.
  • 4+: Commute the targeted player instead of Roleblock.

Spectators Can’t Die (Passive): If you have at least 6 Towncred charges, gain 1 Bullet-proof Vest.

Get Results (Passive): Your base ITA accuracy changes based on your Towncred charges:

  • 0-4: 15%
  • 5-9: 30%
  • 10+: 45%

LyLo Negation (Day): Kill target player. You may only use this action if you have at least 11 Towncred charges.

You win the game when the Mafia and all other threats to the Town have been eliminated.


Announcement: @Daeron has been Cursed! They will be sent into the Void at the end of the day!

Announcement: You all wake up in a mysterious room. There is piece of paper slipped under the door.

It says "Congratulations to crazynuto. You have won a reward. Now, for the next challenge let’s make this a little bit more spicy. I’m looking for blood. Let’s see if you can bring down another mafia member with those tiny guns you have. There is a reward for the first one who brings down evil in this town…

The winner will be rewarded.

Day 2 has started and will end in 24 hours, at 2023-06-28T18:00:00Z.
