Flavor Text for Investigator Results

Postby Ezradekezra » Tue Aug 25, 2020 7:12 pm

I think it would be neat if Investigator results had a bit of flavor text added onto them, kinda like how they used to be.

Here's what I'm thinking the new messages would be:
- Your target owns weapons. They must be a Vigilante, Veteran, Mafioso, Pirate, or Ambusher.
- Your target owns surgical tools. They must be a Doctor, Disguiser, Serial Killer, or Potion Master.
- Your target works with dead bodies. They must be a Medium, Janitor, Retributionist, Necromancer, or Trapper.
- Your target likes messing with people's plans. They must be an Escort, Consort, Transporter, or Hypnotist.
- Your target doesn't own much. They must be a Survivor, Vampire Hunter, Amnesiac, Medusa, or Psychic.
- Your target has many connections. They must be an Investigator, Consigliere, Mayor, Tracker, or Plaguebearer.
- Your target is a "tough guy". They must be a Sheriff, Executioner, Werewolf, or Poisoner.
- Your target is very defensive. They must be a Bodyguard, Godfather, Arsonist, or Crusader.
- Your target whispers a lot. They must be a Spy, Blackmailer, Jailor, or Guardian Angel.
- Your target is a pathological liar. They must be a Framer, Vampire, Jester, or Hex Master.
- Your target knows more than they're letting on. They must be a Lookout, Forger, Juggernaut, or Coven Leader.
- Your target is an enigma. They must be Pestilence!

The addition of the last result shouldn't change much, but it might be a slight nerf to Pestilence if the Investigator gets healed. Not all of these really make sense for each role, but it's not my fault that Disguiser is in the same category as Doctor.

EDIT: Added a poll

I don't know what the bbcode would be to add an outline or a highlight or a shadow effect to the really bad colors. :(

Do I have to be a trusted user to do that?

Idk, I'm trusted and it doesn't appear (no special option)

Same idea, bro

This was before the Jugg patch made it have real results.

Not that I had anything for LO, Forger, CL anyway

Oh wait, they added Jugg to the Lo/Forger/CL results? Let me edit the OP.

Also sorry for the accidental plagiarism.

I agree completely! Give the game more flavor instead of being like a robot.

Only real concern is if the result will fit in the line or not. I remember once when they did have flavor text, and the actual roles often went past the bar, and cut off a bit.
I mean, it's a very very minor thing and the flavor would be worth it again. So yes, if they can find a way around that.

They got rid of the flavor? Bring it back.
I guess the downside would be needing to memorize it?

With the way I laid it out, the flavor text is added on top of the current results.
