Please tell me a bit more about being "roughed up".
Wouldn't want to get a kicking and not know how to react.
What kind of messages are sent?
Being "sent a message" and "getting roughed up" is just a play on words for bad guys' blocking action in the theme of this game. For example, the good guys' blocker is just a vanilla block, but I thought it would be fun (and also to give the bad guys a fighting chance ;-)) to have this little extra.
The player being blocked will be PMed a little side story that s/he was "roughed up" (blocked), and the bad guys can also send a brief message to the player they are blocking. An example could be on night 1:
"We have our eyes on you...you will ensure there is no tie in the day's lynch or we will kill you tomorrow night."
Remember, though, that the bad guys can only do this on odd nights, but they can use it to their advantage. They won't want to give too much away in their message, but they can do something like the above to persuade someone to do something, or even deflect suspicion onto their block target...
