Mimington bows and tips his beret.
Silently stalking the station, leaning against invisible walls, sitting on invisible chairs, eating invisible food: the Mime has a connection to another world beyond the senses of mortals. The Mime is the rival of the noisy Clown, and usually has a higher standard for their silent pranks and invisible shenanigans.
As the Clown is here to prank people, and make them laugh, the Mime is here to give a show to people! You are not a silly Clown copy, you are a professional, and professionals have standards. Be efficient, be polite, have a plan to distract everyone you meet!
Vow of Silence
You cannot talk unless you press the Speech button in your Mime menu. However, to speak as a mime is the ultimate taboo, and in pressing the button (even if you don't actually say anything afterwards) you will lose touch with the source of your power, and you can no longer produce invisible walls (purely cosmetic now, you cannot make them anymore)! A mime communicates through gesture. This is his art! Noise is the place of that wretched clown, not a true performer like yourself. In emergencies, a note on a piece of paper can do in a pinch. Such a critic. Make sure your gestures actually make sense to an observer. Use custom emotes to talk and your ass is going to get warned and get you job banned.
A few examples for your viewing pleasure:
WORST: Mimington mimes Person A murdering Person B.
BAD: Mimington mimes out Person A doing horrible things.
OKAY: Mimington points to Person A, mimics a cutting motion, and then gestures to Person B.
BETTER: Mimington mimics a stature similar to Person A's, and throws aggressive movements and stabbing motions.
BEST: Mimington lifts an imaginary knife and aggressively slashes it forward!
Person C: An assault, I guess? So it was a murder. Can you show us who did it, mime?
Mimington nods solemnly, and gestures toward Person A.
You can use the "me" command to emote anything you'd like, e.g. "Me waves to you".
There are also some built-in emotes in the game, some with special effects. Just use say and an asterisk before your emote, e.g. "Say *blink" (or use one of the below). Using the "me" command is essentially the same as using "say *custom".
aflap, airguitar, blink, blink_r, blush, bow-(none)/mob, burp, choke, chuckle, clap, collapse, cough, cry, custom, dap, deathgasp, drool, eyebrow, faint, frown, flap, gasp, giggle, glare-(none)/mob, grin, groan, grumble, handshake, hug-(none)/mob, johnny, laugh, look-(none)/mob, moan, mumble, me, nod, pale, point-(atom), raise, salute, scream, shake, shiver, shrug, sigh, signal-#1-10, smile, sneeze, sniff, snore, stare-(none)/mob, tremble, twitch, twitch_s, wave, whimper, wink, yawn"
NOTE: If you die and get cloned you lose all your mime abilities and you gain the ability to talk, so if you are near crit, don't ghost, give someone time to heal you.
You can use the "me" command to emote anything you'd like, e.g. me, "waves to you.". Try and describe your surroundings with your emotes, and your actions. You will be rewarded for your work (sometimes) by either receiving the coveted Karma Points for your RP or reciprocal RP that can be just as fun! Your emotes are your only way of truly fulfilling your assigned role so do not short change them unless your character's life depends on it.
Keeping with mime flair, the stealth items are always handy when you are a traitor. And, no one will expect you to speak, ever, so you never have to communicate on the radios. You start with a pair of white gloves, so you don't leave prints (but only fibers) on a crime scene or your traitor items. Since a mime is expected to have a pen for writing notes, the Sleepy Pen is a particularly good choice. Your invisible wall also makes up for a great way to stop hostiles that are pursuing you.
