About This Game

TOL Game Description for Steam

Throne of Lies is a FREE, 3D Werewolf/Mafia game that requires social deduction skills to defeat the enemies. It is a game of deceit, investigation, strategy, and role play.

How to play

The game ranges from 6 to 16 players. Each player is randomly assigned to the roles from one of the four factors:
The Blue Dragon (Good/Protagonist)
The Unseen (Bad/Antagonist)
The Cult (Bad/Antagonist)
The Neutral

If you are one of the good guys, you need to find out the bad guys for the execution to defend your throne, but you can also be converted by the Cult leader.

If you are one of the bad guys, you will be able to communicate with each other at night and overturn the throne by taking down all the good guys in the game.


Game modes

Quick Mode (6 players)
Selected roles (4 Good + 1 Bad + 1 Neutral) will be assigned, no conversion possibility. Best for new players.

Duel Mode (7-9 players)
Selected roles will be assigned from the blue dragon, the unseen and the cult, excluding Neutral faction.

Classic Mode (8-16 players)
Randomly assigned roles from all 4 factions. Highest complexity of all modes.


Game phrases

The unique Day/Night cycle allows players to congregate around the table, discuss their findings and accuse players of treason during the day and use their abilities to occupy, spy on, conspire against and even kill their fellow players at night.

Day
You can share your investigation results in the chat box to all players or you can whisper to the King privately. Starting from Day 2, you can vote one suspicious player for execution, it takes at least 3 players to start the trial before the suspect gets executed.

Trial
Starting Day 2, if 3 or more players voted the same suspicious player, the trial will begin and all players get to vote for “Execute” or “Pardon”.

Night
Each role would have different skills to use at night. If a Cult or Unseen member decides to make a kill, all players will see the result in the following day phrase. The conversion also happens at night and the good guy will be allied with the bad guys the next Day.


Features

Log Book
A notebook to keep track of your investigation results for Day and Night phases. You can also put in false information to mislead other players as the Log Book will be revealed and available for all players when your role gets killed.

Deathnote
A note you can leave as a signature or graffiti and will be shown to all when a player gets killed by you.

Chat Box
Send messages to the room or join the discussion during the game. All notification messages, such as the voting results, the death of a player, or your personal conversion information, will also be shown.

Whisper
You can send a whisper message to the King if you have valuable information about a certain player from your investigation. Or you can send false information to trick the Good King when being a member of Unseen or Cult.
