Is the mafia factional kill compulsive?
I help run some games on another website. Typically we've made it non-compulsive but we've run into issues with a 4-player MyLo where town's best play is to no lynch to coerce the mafia into killing at night, and the mafia's best play is not to kill to coerce town into lynching from the four living players resulting in the game stalling.
I had a brief search but could find no documentation on the subject.

Apologies if this is not the correct place to ask this.

Hey guys. Couldn’t see a Q&A thread so is this the right place? I can start a new thread if that’s more appropriate.

I’ve had a friend host a game that included both a mafia traitor and a serial killer, with the traitor not being able to win if the rest of his faction was wiped out.
In a game with only two parties (town vs. mafia) this isn’t an issue; the game ends immediately. But is there a standard for what happens if a mafia main body is eliminated and there’s both a traitor and an independent killer still alive?

Does the traitor die immediately if the rest of the faction is eliminated?
Does their win condition change?
Do they keep playing as-is in the hope of making a 1 vs. 1 vs. 1 endgame?
Thanks
