Patch 2.1.0 Ranked Season One Begins!

Hey Townies,

The patch 2.1.0 is coming today! This patch will include the following:

Ranked Season 1 Starts!
With Ranked Season 1 we will start doing placement matches. You will play 10 matches before you are placed and told what your rating is. Rewards for this season will be based on your Season High Rating so if you happen to go on a losing streak you won't drop into a lower tier of rewards. We will still keep track of your Current Rating though. On top of tracking Season High and Current Rating we will be keeping track of your Career High Rating for the future.

Ranked/Ranked Practice role list changes!
One of the Random Town slots was changed to be a Town Investigative. We hope this change will make games feel a little less swingy while still leaving open enough claim space so the evil roles feel that they have the ability to claim a role without being immediately caught.

The new list is as follows:
Jailor
Town Investigative
Town Investigative
Town Protective
Town Killing
Town Support
Random Town
Random Town
Random Town
Godfather/Coven Leader
Mafioso/Medusa
Random Mafia/Coven
Random Mafia/Coven
Neutral Killing
Neutral Evil

Spy Changes!
The Spy will be keeping his current ability which allows him to see who the Mafia and Coven visit, but we will be adding on a new ability to the Spy. The Spy is now able to "bug" a players house. This will cause the spy to see all of the actions that player would normally see done to them. This would include messages such as being attacked but healed, being roleblocked, being transported, and more. The role card has been updated to reflect these changes.

The Spy will see the following messages when bugging a player:
Your target was transported to another location.
Someone occupied your target's night. They were role blocked!
Someone threatened to reveal your target's secrets. They were blackmailed!
Your target was attacked but someone fought off their attacker!

About This Game

Purchase comes with the exclusive SteamBot3000 Character Skin with unique death animation, 2,000 Town Points ($8 Value) and you will earn double Merit Points forever!

Town of Salem is a fresh innovation on the classic party games Mafia and Werewolf. It is a game of murder, accusations, deceit and mob hysteria.

How To Play

The game ranges from 7 to 15 players. These players are randomly divided into alignments - Town, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists and Neutrals. If you are a Town member (the good guys) you must track down the Mafia and other villains before they kill you. The catch? You don't know who is a Town member and who is a villain.

If you are an evil role, such as a Serial Killer, you secretly murder town members in the veil of night and try to avoid getting caught.

Roles

Town of Salem has 33 unique roles ensuring a different experience each time you play.

Before a game starts, players are put into a lobby where the host can select what roles will be in the game. Players are then assigned roles at random from the list of chosen roles. Players have an in-game role card that explains their role's abilities and alignments. For an in-depth look at the abilities of each role please visit: www.blankmediagames.com/roles

Game Phases

Night

The night phase is when most roles use their abilities. For example, Serial Killers stealthily murder people, Doctors heal people who are attacked, and Sheriffs interrogate people for suspicious activity.

Day

The day phase allows the Town members to discuss who they suspect of being an evil role. Once the voting phase starts a majority vote from the town will put someone on trial.

Defense

The defense phase is when you plead your innocence to the town. Have a convincing story or find yourself facing the gallows!

Judgement

During this phase the town will vote on the fate of the defendant. Players can vote guilty, innocent or abstain. If there are more guilty votes than innocent votes the defendant is sentenced to death by hanging!

Customization

Players are able to choose their own map (town setting), character, pet, lobby icon, death animation, house and a custom name. The other players in the game will see your selections. There are currently 10 maps, 29 characters, 20 pets, 5 death animations and 20 houses to choose from.

Achievements

There are currently over 220 unique achievements in the game. Earning achievements will grant various in-game items (however the items for donation rewards are exclusive to Kickstarter).
