New Role:Archivist (repost)

Postby Rxqluid1234 » Fri Oct 11, 2019 7:45 am

Archivist (Town Investigative)
Records daytime lynch trials to review them later and catch suspicious characters

Attributes
Checks the votes of evil players.

Abilities
During the day, you may select a vote type (Guilty, Innocent, or Abstination).
Choosing a vote type uses up 1 archive slot.
You have only 3 archive slots.
You will see all evil roles that voted the vote type you chose.
If you use an archive slot, the vote type you chose cannot be changed.
An archive slot lasts for one trial.
You can only use an archive slot once a day.
Goal
Lynch all evildoers...yes
Wins With Town, Pirate, blah blah blah

Ability details
During the day, you can archive the next trial by choosing from three types of votes. You can choose either Guilty, Innoncent, or abstaining votes. When a player is sent into trial, and it is "Fate" time (basically the part where you vote guilty, innocent, or abstaining on a player), after "Fate" time is over and the player is either lynched or pardoned, you will know how many players that were evil (including all Neutrals except Neutral Benign) voted the vote type you chose (and how many of a team voted that vote type). You can only archive a trial three times. Archiving lasts only one trial and you can only use an archive slot once a day (to prevent VFR from being meta).
Example: During the day, the Archivist chose the Guilty vote type. A townie was being pushed. After "Fate" time, he got a notification saying that "2 members of the mafia voted guilty!". If there was a Serial Killer in the game and voted Guilty at this point, the Archivist would instead get "2 members of the mafia and a Neutral Killer voted Guilty!".

Notifications:
X members of the mafia voted Guilty/voted Innocent/abstained!
A member of the mafia voted Guilty/voted Innocent/abstained!
No evil player voted Guilty/voted Innocent/abstained!
A Neutral Killer voted Guilty/voted Innocent/abstained!
A Neutral Evil voted Guilty/voted Innocent/abstained!
No members of the mafia voted Guilty/voted Innocent/abstained!
You have chosen to archive Guilty/Innocent/abstaining votes this day.
You have used up an archive slot!
(When the day is over and you recorded trials)

Investigative results
Sheriff: Your target seems innocent!
Investigator: Investigator, Consigliere, Mayor, Archivist
Consigliere/Witch: Your target records trials and conspiracies for trouble. They must be an Archivist!

Achievements:
Archiving: Win 1 game as Archivist
Recorded Trials: Win 5 games as Archivist
Take Notes: Win 10 games as Archivist
Falsified Evidence!: See 4 members of the mafia vote guilty
Trial Break: See no evil roles on a voting type
Voting Party: See more than 5 evil roles vote on your chosen voting type
History Deficit: Don't archive in a single game
On Hold: Use all of your archives in one game

So if I understand correctly this could be a D2-3 meta. Town can push up for a VFR, the Jailor/Mayor can select 2-3 other players to check and they will guilty where everybody else inno's or the other way around where this role checks for those guilty votes and find evils like nobody's business. This role will check for evils like the psychic but in classic. What if you do this with 3 people, all of which come up as evil? Or none come up as evil and three people are instantly confirmed as town.

Oh, I see. I figured someone would catch a flaw in this role (the VFR). A balance patch I could make to this role is giving it 3 archive slots but only 1 slot per trial (and you can only use an archive slot once a day). This will make VFR good for only 2 times and give other tactics (such as baiting) a better chance to work.
