Disguiser Rework

Postby Rivelle » Fri Jul 12, 2019 12:39 am

Change 1 | If a target was visited by the Disguiser, the Disguiser can chat through their name (including whispers!) The Disguiser can switch between names by clicking the sun icon. The targeted player can't see the texts sent by the Disguiser while in their character. Disguisers can't send texts through blackmailed targets.
Change 2 | Can no longer disguise as a role.

Example | Player 1, a disguiser, visited Player 2.
Player 1 hits the sun icon and says, "Player 3 came up as Suspicious!" through Player 2's name.
Player 1 hits the sun icon again, and speaks "Player 3, role?" through their own character's name.

Why I like this | It's much more fun. Disguiser is rated one of the most boring roles (not for me, but for others though D: ). But I can undeniably say this rework would make it more entertaining.

Disguisers can make townies question the "confirmed" ones.

Claiming a target was "Disguised" can be used to deny incriminating evidence. Should you say anything suspicious, you deny those words by saying you were being disguised.

______________________________________________________

Texts sent by the disguiser while inside the target should be revealed in a separate chat log, when the game ends.

This rework may generate a lot of false reports for the disguised target... but Disguisers already generate a lot of false reports. ( but one way to solve this is to allow players to cancel the report )

I also believe that the role of Disguiser needs a change. The change that you ask for will require a lot of work and with that change the game would stop being balanced.
Instead I propose a single change in the role of Disguiser, which would make this role more useful for the mafia but the game would remain balanced.
Right now the Disguiser role is only useful when there is Consigliere, which limits the possibilities of thinking a tactic with that role.
The change that I propose is that if the Disguisier disguises himself one night and the next night he does not disguise that he keeps the disguise of the previous night.
I will give an example and we will see the two points of view.
The example is the following: the Disguiser disguises in the N2 of number 4 and in the following night it is not disguised. Suppose that on day 4 he appears dead by Serial Killer, for example.
If the game stays the same, on that day the Disguiser would appear as Disguiser. But instead with the change that I propose would appear with the role of number 4.
As you can see, the change that I propose would not affect the game much, but would make the role of Disguiser more useful.

This is a good idea. I doubt that it's enough of a buff, but it's good enough to try.
My best role ideas:
Conqueror
Apocalypse Survivor
Brilliand
