Welcome to MafiaManiac, a site is dedicated to the growth and expansion of the online forum game of Mafia.

Mafia is that party game you may have played, where there is a mafia (informed minority) trying to overtake an entire village and the villagers (uninformed Majority) are trying to stop them. We play these mafia games over several days in our forum and we have people from all over the world playing them. These mafia games can be themed from movies, real life situations and almost anything you can think of! Mafia involves a lot of creative strategy, making you think on your toes. You'll be forced trust your gut, check your logic, and deceive or be deceived. If you think you can handle playing, here are a few links you should definitely check out.

To themselves the Idolized Goodie would appear to be goodie and will win with the goodies at the end of the game if all mafia and themselves have been eliminated from the game.

They however count in the baddies win-con and if they are the sole survivor at the end of the game the mafia wins.

Thus the win-con for the baddies is for them (including the Idolized Goodie) to have majority

The win-con for the goodies is to eliminate all mafia and the object of their affection

Up to you if
* Mafia is aware of who the Idolized Goodie is.
* Spy results show Idolized Goodie as being in the baddies faction, or specifically mention that they are an "Idolised Goodie"

This role would be useful in games that need more weight on the baddies side for balancing but you don't want to over-weigh it by adding another baddie.

Hunting a scum that thinks it is goodie, and in fact wins with goodies, is not really scum hunting because there are no tells to look for. If the purpose is just to give a small number advantage to baddies, I would say that once all baddies are dead the player should revert to being normal goodie.

If the mafia is aware of who it is though you could scum hunt based on their interactions with known mafia. Your refinement however is a good one. As this decoration is not locked in stone (i.e. a significant number of games have played with this decoration in effect) feel free to make whatever embellishments or changes you need to make it work (or to delicately balance) . This role is freely available for anybody to take inspiration from.
