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?

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.
"Let us say that you are right and there are two worlds. How much, then, is this 'other world' worth to you? What do you have there that you do not have here? Money? Power? Something worth causing the prince so much pain for?'"
"Well, I..."
"What? Nothing? You would make the prince suffer over... nothing?"

I might be missing the point
"Let us say that you are right and there are two worlds. How much, then, is this 'other world' worth to you? What do you have there that you do not have here? Money? Power? Something worth causing the prince so much pain for?'"

That "geriatric" player that complains about there being too many pages to read on a large theme game.
Every idiot has the right to be a man and you should use that privilege

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

Bandwagoner: Can only vote for a player who has two votes on them already (or a descending threshold with size of game).

Self pitying newbie: Gets a bonus night action if they self vote in a day phase without getting lynched. Loses ability once claimed.

Clique leader: neighborizer. Is banned from voting the person they recruit.

Tunnelvision: bonus night action if on a successful lynchwagon and has voted for no one else all day.

The self-proclaimed meta expert. Claims to be an expert on various players so-called “meta” but usually (more often than not) gets it wrong.

Thing with Nancy is we just need to tread carefully because if you slip up around her as scum she notices and will tear your spine out and slap you to death with it.

'The Straggler'

Is always behind in the game, every couple of days (usually after a prod) promises to catch up and do stuff.

Either gets replaced or lynched based on activity.

The Selective Reader:

A player originally in the signups/NOT a replacement. They never bother actually reading the setup and at some point between mid and endgame, either request clarification or express extreme surprise about something that everyone else and their uncle have been aware of since early game.

Thing with Nancy is we just need to tread carefully because if you slip up around her as scum she notices and will tear your spine out and slap you to death with it.

'The gambler'

Likes to fakeclaim, sometimes multiple times in a single game. When not fakeclaiming, is often found pulling a gambit like fake hammer.
