Well, the first one seemed to work, so let’s do it again. Minimum 5 players and more is definitely better. There will be a lot of private message traffic.
Here’s a character crib, generated from the “Script” tool on the game web site. In the actual game, each player has a copy of this - it lists all the characters who might be in the game, and what they do.

As far as you know there are 9 Townsfolk, 2 Outsiders, 3 Minions, and 1 Demon (but some roles will change this if they’re present - for example, if the Baron is in play, two of the Townsfolk have been replaced by Outsiders.)
You are allowed to communicate privately with other players, but you must post that “your name whispers to @other-player” (and the same from them in return if they answer, though only once each per exchange).
Note to latecomers / observers - you can be included even once the game’s started. Send me a PM and say you want to join as a Traveller, and I’ll give you details.
