@jazzking
It's never made clear from the get-go if the psycho role is there or not - it's always a "possibility".

It's precisely this possibility which I didn't know of. I'm not saying I didn't know that there would be a psycho, I'm saying I didn't know that there even might be. I hold myself and other townies responsible for the loss. Still, the game had some unwritten truths which some knew and others didn't, but could easily have been made explicit.

I only bring this up because Daemon wondered how we could not realize Valli was psycho.

Well, a brief look at the roles of previous games Daemon held here would reveal that there has always been a third faction before. And there is no need to read much, as all roles are available in the single post once the game has ended.

Besides, even in the real-life mafia games such roles are possible. Although, they are most often weird loner roles. For instance, one can have an "alien" role. The alien wins if he first gets killed during the night, and then gets lynched the next day. However, in the real-life games you usually announce all roles before starting the game. That does not make much sense in the forum mafia.

I guess, I would expect anything from forum mafia at this point. For instance, I was recently asking Daemon whether it would be reasonable to have multiple competing mafia factions in the same game. But then, ok, there's not much difference from "psycho". You can consider psycho to be an extra mafia faction consisting on 1 guy... Or more than 1 when Daemon had a team of 2-3 psychos in the past.

I kinda felt that I fucked it up with my role claim in the end I aggree I should've been way more aggressive at that point, however I am unsure if that would've worked.

Fair enough. I will just have to bide my time for Mafia 4  Evil

Indeed, valli was already in a precarious position, so attacking someone else aggressively may have made things worse.
Eyes weren't exactly on him until I forcefully pointed them on him.

I've seen enough psychos in my time; they're not so rare.
But I've never really seen a real fully-fledged third faction, e.g. Masons, much less been a part of it.
