How to Play:
Traitors, also known as the Unseen/Cult, are rumored to be plotting against the castle. The loyal people of The Blue Dragon faction must discover who has committed Treason by using social deduction and clues.
At night, bad players (the Unseen/Cult) will generally murder or disrupt the good players (the Blue Dragon): These players can murder other players at night by use of night abilities. The Unseen and Cult factions will be able to talk at night and know each other.
On the other hand, at night, the good players (the Blue Dragon) will attempt to either investigate, defend or support others, with a select few being able to kill. They will attempt to determine who is friend and foe by investigating. Most good players will not be able to talk to each other at night. The good guys, even though they outnumber the Unseen or the Cult, do not know who is who.
During the day, players discover who was murdered the previous night and discuss the case. They will bring clues (and fake clues fabricated by the Unseen or the Cult) into the table and by using social deduction, the discussion will unfold to a suspect. To help them, each player will have a day power that will be able to help the discussion. At the end of the day, one player will be accused as the traitor and be executed - It is your job to execute the right people.
