Hey guys, I need some help on character ideas for a game I'm running off-site and was wondering if you guys could help me with some characters for the game

The game is quite meta and each character is meant to be a type of player you might find within Mafia games

Any thoughts on some characters I could use and what their powers would be?

For example:
Cheat - Mafia Role cop - each night they secretly find out who another player is (like how some cheaters might peak and try to watch the night phase)
Flip-Flopper - Town - Must vote at least 2 different players every round (can't ever decide who they want to vote for)
Moderator - Town - Upon being lynched reveals their role and stays in the game (uses mod powers to manipulate the game)

Coming up with a power for said player is helpful but not needed to help with the game

Expert scum Hunter can be the cop

OMGUS-er can be a mafia role who can only vote for players who have previously voted for them at some point in the game

What's a deepwolf?

Lynchbait would probably be Vengeful?

people who cheat by being in the same game with multiple accounts - friendly neighbor

Please direct all PMs to geometry. I won't be logging in to chennisden for a while as I have no ongoing games with this account.

Masons is a better approximation but OP might specifically looking for targetted PRs.

Lynchbait is not really vengeful. Lynchbait players are like the least deadsheeped players. Lynchbait would actually be closer to hated.

"Vig" is pretty close to a generically good mafia player who can convince people to lynch the people that they want lynched.

flipflopper is boring

VOTE: random person

VOTE: guy i want to vote

The player who talks up their town game like mad and then only scumreads town who disagree with them
If you're Macho and someone tries to rolestop you, you never realise you're being targeted for a kill, so your machismo never gets challenged
