Came up in some discussions on the discord, as Prince was a gendered name that wasn't too popular in general, and besides, didn't work well to pluralize (three princes in the same game? What kind of world is this?)

I came up with the suggestion of Diplomat to replace Prince.

Reasoning
  • Diplomat is gender-neutral.
  • Makes more sense flavor-wise (a diplomat has immunity, and it makes more sense if a 1-shot Diplomat is like "on their last chance" as opposed to a 1-shot Prince (disinherited? how does a Prince lose their elimproof status?)


I also know there's a case for using term-dependent names like Eliminationproof. My suggestion here is that could be used in a way analogous to Bulletproof – as an invention flavor or an optional mod flavor.

I think diplomat or eliminationproof (not that big a deal if elim is the standard) is a good replacement

Prince is too "One Night Ultimate Werewolf" - and I'm saying this as the one who rolled Prince in One Night Ultimate Ultimate Werewolf

No one is yeetproof. If you can't yeet someone, you clearly aren't yeeting hard enough.

I really like Diplomat as a role name for elimination proof. I think "diplomatic immunity" fits a lot better than the royalty theme

They are legally yeetproof.

The reason I had them change it to Prince was because of One Night Ultimate Werewolf. I think there is value in overlapping some role terms from that game, since it is widely known beyond the standard mafia forum community (not that it necessarily has to be this role).

I actually quite like diplomat, especially with this logic
unfortunately my main "why" involves spoilers for a video game so I can't really dive into it here
