Do what you can to counteract the powerful magic used by the Traitors.
Find secret passages, flag down boats, and fix broken bridges to help get around the town.

Possessed by the Necronomicon, Traitors fight to gain control of the Town and free the Necronomicon from its failing prison. As a Traitor, sneaking and stealth are your best allies. Kill Town members to protect the Necronomicon!
Use your role’s abilities to do things like burn away dead bodies, convert Town members over to the side of Evil, or block all Town members from using abilities!
Use Spells granted to you by the Necronomicon to give yourself the advantage over the Town by blocking their paths with overgrown brambles, displacing players to random areas around the map, or summoning powerful totems that must be dispelled or Town will be slowed, have reduced vision, or will outright be killed!
