Smell-wise, there are werewolves. As for the eyes thing, yeah, the reference is that the Old Ones put eyes in humans' brains to let them see higher planes and stuff. Pretty common reference: the idea is super creepy.

Yeah...gradual lycanthropy? 4/24 scum? I'm thinking a neutral/alternative scum werewolf clan that can recruit. So yeah. Can there be two groups known as Mafia, mods, or must one hypothetical group be known as Neutral?
Anything soul- or monarch-related is going to be a reference to Dark Souls ("Bearer of the curse, seek souls, larger more powerful souls" is what the level-up NPC says in DaS2 every time you talk to her, and "Are you...the next monarch?" is another of her lines), so probably not a breadcrumb but just speaking in flavor. I'm assuming everything actually in-game will be BB-flavored, so DaS-flavored stuff is just funsies. (as a side note, squidjy's "We don't talk about that game" is because DaS2 is considered the worst of the Soulsborne games)
As far as beast/wolf-related stuff, the werewolves (referred to in-game as Beasts) are the obvious bad guys at the start of the game. As you progress you find out about other sketchy groups (like us, the Healing Church), but if I didn't know what the mafia were flavored as I'd assume they were either Beasts or Kin/Old Ones. So they could be breadcrumbing something related to Beast roles (possibly a secondary mafia faction), or they could just be talking in flavor ('cause it's really obvious flavor: the game is sort of set up/advertised as 'hunt the Beasts' and the Cthulhu-esque flavor is more of a twist/swerve).

Roy's going around putting out fires but not actually lighting any themselves.
I appreciate the defense, roy, but this is suspect. Both scum and town want a lynch. Scum wants a quick careless one while town wants to force reactions. But only scum wants to lay groundwork for alliances and trust and this is done by defending people.
Well, that is possible, yes. In fact, what I personally want, is for more non scum members to annoy the town as a whole into voting for them. I see no need for speed.
Haly seems primed to jump on the batch of players who want the day to end earlier. A possible point for leading him around.

Is it remotely possible for werewolves/beasts to be the powered town members? I don't want to accuse a Beast of being Mafia and then find out they're town and I should have known that from my own role card.

So, if there's a group of wolfy players, they probably want to target us.
Heed this ambiguous language, friends. We're assuming these are beasts. But it would be obvious by now if someone was a beast. In fact, in Bloodborne, people turn into beasts, and don't turn back, so I think we should expect that. Further, who are the real threats? I think the enemy does not consist of beasts at all.Kristoffer says:
Ok i type that backwards. Kris looks like suggesting beasts aren't the mafia. Is he a beast? Haly said *chew* in another post after using the toothless line. Mods wont answer my multiple Mafia group question.
Just, keep your extra eyes out for beast references, in case our wild speculation is at least part right "

Yes, camjo might be being himself.
2nd partner option: never forever As seath said, he's spamming "arianna grande" gifs. Note the misspelling. Arianna = woman of pleasure = one of our safe role names. If partner got same safe names, which a mod may or may not confirm, and I've given up on getting information out of scrafty that she doesn't want to share.

WARNING RANDOM LORE SPECULATION
So I went to read bits of the wiki after Scrafty posted her cleric beast post. Insight is gained by finding bosses. Ri gets a power after gaining sufficient insight, which sounds like Role Name Cop. Ver has the ability to find Moon Presence, a single boss character. I have an unblockable kill. Our hidden partner has unknown abilities.
It is quite possible that Moon Presence can look at role names or look for a particular other character, or has a partner that can. Since Moon Presence is important for us to kill, it could have kill resistance. Possibly if we use the normal kill instead of the strong kill, it would fail. Could even be permanent, meaning it would need to be lynched if the strong kill wasn't available.
The discovery of the Cleric Beast/Bridge provides an insight. The town as a whole may have an insight count in the background which triggers stuff. I expect more tourist card data if that's true. Possibly another one in the first day phase. Would also mean camjo didn't trigger it being posted. A town Insight rating could trigger Night, and then Blood Moon phases. Presumably something would change at that point. If so, it could be related to time. I have a power that disappears after night 3. Haly drew attention to day 5, saying he's going to be powerless at that point.
Huh...patches sounds sketchy so I'll go with Sick room doctor.
Ok. For a role power I suspect poison doctor would be reasonable. It gives you a reason for looking at people, and you can be seen doing that, but it doesn't do anything if they aren't poisoned.
I could claim town vig. Maybe. Since Patches can be aggro and vigilante can kill town accidentally, that might be taken as a town power. I certainly can't claim vicar, too associated with the group.
woman of pleasure would lead itself to a claim of ordinary, or a roleblock, or possibly a fruit vendor. Gives blood to someone, it powers them up....decent option for Ri, since he might get a power later.
That makes sense, Moon Presence being this games detective. In that case, it would be best to get them killed early on, or lynched. Though, if we're found having investigated them and they die right after, that seems suspicious.
