She turned me into a Nowt!


..I got better!
- At the beginning of day 5, you will convert into a member of the town.




Really, the only problem I forsee with having two Town factions is that because they are uninformed as to who their mates are, if the game came down to T v N, there would likely be no possible way to tell town apart from nowt.

Weird Amoeba


Each phase, you receive a new ability that can only be used during that phase. (This ability is arbitrary and up to mod discretion.)

Each phase, you receive a new winning condition with a deadline of the end of the current phase. (This win condition is arbitrary and up to mod discretion.)

Nowt Day Vigilante


Target someone during the day. Assuming no interference with your action, you will kill them. You must make your shots in public.



I've had Nowt in the deck for a bit now. Hasn't rolled yet, but I'm hoping to make a decent design space such that they can roll. Also lets me stick the factional stuff on all of the cards as a little blurb like with Mizzytastic's BotC roles.

Town 2-shot Whack-a-mole


Twice in the game at night, you may hide in one of 3 holes. You may choose to hide in either the left hole, middle hole or right hole. If anybody targets you that night, they will be sent a PM asking them to choose a hole (left, middle or right). Their action will fail if they choose the hole you are hiding in. If somebody roleblocks you, you do not get to hide in a hole that night.

Town 1-shot Disloyal Gender Cop


Once in the game at night, you may target a player. Assuming no interference with your action, if that player is a member of the mafia you will learn the predominant gender of the alive players on the mafia team (or receive 'tie' if there is a tie for the most common gender (s)). Unknown is classed as a gender.

This action will fail if used on a member of the town.

Town Clone


Upon your death or elimination you may elect to retain the ability to post in any topics you have access to by PMing the mod that you wish to do so before entering dead thread. Should you elect to do this you must make and post under a new account titled "Clone of playername". This ability will be revoked by the mod should you fail to post under said account (minor slips are fine as long as you heed any warning the mod gives you)

The Gender Fluidist


After a lifetime's work in reasearch and development, you've finally perfected a peculiar liquid. It's strange, it's disliked, and most importantly, it's ruthlessly effective.


Each night, choose a player. That player learns that your role exist, and their winning condition changes to ensure that either you or they are alive by the end of the game.

Ensure that both you and at least 3 converts survive until the end of the game.

Werewolf 1-Shot Rampager


Once a game at night, if you are committing the factional kill you may activate this ability. While this ability is active alongside attacking your target you will also attempt to attack anyone who visited them as well.

Neighbor Vote inside a vote
(Mod discretion alignement)

You start in a neighborhood with 4 other random players

During day 1, on top of the normal execution, each non-factional PT can vote to execute one of their own

if this role is chosen, add enough players to each non-factional non-inner sanctum PT (that's the town only masons right?) so that they at least contain 3 players

Town Census Taker


Target someone at night. (This may be yourself). Assuming no interference with your action, you will learn if they are in a PT with any player not part of their faction.

This'll get a negative result on a Masonry with only Townies, a player without PT access, or a Mafia member without access to other PTs other than the Mafia PT, for instance.

Town Crooked Cop


You may investigate a player at night. If the player is aligned to the town, you will get a result of
innocent
. If the player is not aligned to the town, you will get a result of
guilty
, but if they are a member of an informed minority faction, they will bribe you, and your win condition will change to match theirs.

Town Time Waster


Each night, you may do nothing.

This role is considered to be an
Outsider
to any roles that care about
Outsiders
as opposed to
Townsfolk
.

Town Double Mysterious Conduit


Each night, you may target up to two players to charge them with a mysterious energy.

Mod Note: This role charges someone with a mysterious energy indefinitely. (Roles like Mysterious Eidolon can lose mysterious energy charge)

Mysterious energy is mysterious, it will have a subtle effect. Mysterious energy is a lingering effect that lasts indefinitely. Mod Discretion applies on mysterious energy's effect.

Town Paramedic


Once per night, you may visit a player. If they are targeted by a nightkill that night, you will block it. If, however, you are targeted by a nightkill that night, both you and your target will be killed.

Mafia 1-shot Lobbyist


Once per game, during the night phase, you may attempt to bribe a player. If that player has the ability to perform an action (excluding any factional nightkill), and is not of your alignment, their alignment and win condition will change to match yours. If that player does not have the ability to perform an action, they will receive a message saying "[your name] attempted to bribe you".

The Jackal knows the alignment category of every player in the game. You will join EVERY faction PT, and gain a random Facade, a fake role you cannot use, but is shown to members of that faction. You cannot perform factional abilities, nor the abilities of your Facade. Every night you may convert a player to a
R
e
cr
u
i
t
. You may only have one recruit per alignment catergory ever in a game. Recruiting any other alignment category but
Town-Like
will however cause you to be unable to recruit a player the next night. Recruits will have only their wincon changed and their color changed (Example:
Va
nil
la
to
wn
ie
), with the only extra ability being knowing the
J
a
c
k
a
l
. If the
J
a
c
k
a
l
dies, the recruits will also die. Recruits will stay as recruits, but change role and fake faction if a conversion is attempted on them.

Spoiler: Alignment Categories

Town-Like
- Townies, Nowties and equivalents.
Groupscum
- Mafia, Werewolves and other groupscum.
Solo
- Serial Killers and other Neutrals that win alone and cannot win with a different faction.
Pariah
- Jester, Condemner and other Neutral roles that can win with other factions simultaneously.
Exotic
- Roles that do NOT fall under a different category. Usually very rare.


You win when you and your Recruits make up 50% of the remaining town, and no non recruited players that block game end (Groupscum, solo neutrals like serial killer) are alive, or this is inevitable.

Name/Coloring inspired by Better Town Of Salem 2, but has a completely different function. Works as a combined version of both the recruits and the Jackal role themselves.
