Hitman (Neutral Killing) Role Idea

Postby musi99 » Mon Sep 09, 2019 2:25 pm

He is given a target role at the beginning of the game. He must find the player of that role and kill him at night in order to win. Lynching doesn't count. If his target is lynched or killed by someone else at night he gets a new target role. If he shoots the wrong target at night, he is that night found killed at his home by his "employees" as a lesson... He appears suspicious to Sheriff.

This role would classify as a Neutral Benign role, not Neutral Killing. The goal of Neutral Killing roles should be to kill everyone who doesn't have the same role as you (excluding Witches and Survivors). With that being said, getting a role that is unique would be unfair since you're more likely to find a right person if there are multiple people with the role you're looking for.

Did you mean Neutral Chaos? That's the only category I see this role fitting in.

Well, now that I think about it, yeah. I agree that NB roles shouldn't be able to kill.

Me: Oh shi-


What are the restrictions of which roles can be this role's target? I assume they need to be killable at night otherwise my joke could be a reality. However, I think that having an evil role as a target is unfair against evils. So will the target be always Town?

I just thought that, a role with a similar goal to the Executioner, who doesn't know who his target is and has to find them through deduction, who can't just random shoot someone like a Vigilante because he is alone and he has no team to win the game for him, would be a fun challenge. I haven't thought about any other details concerning how it would work out in reality honestly.

This basic concept has been suggested before, many many times. I'm pretty sure at this point that it isn't possible to make a good role based on this concept.

If you're going to be suggesting un-fleshed-out concepts, they should probably be less obvious than "like an Executioner but at night".
My best role ideas:
Conqueror
Apocalypse Survivor
Brilliand
Retributionist
