Slight jester change

Jesters should only win when they haunt, not when they are lynched.
And the random haunt feature should be removed, so if a jester doesn't haunt then no one dies and the jester loses.
The reason why this should be implemented is because many jesters use the random haunt which heavily relies on luck.

I don't see the problem with how it works right now

I explained the problem in my post, how a lot of jesters use the random haunt feature. It's luck based, and luck based abilities aren't good.

No jester kill is even worse

But most jesters aren't going to do that, because they won't be able to win.

The game is highly luck-based anyway. I do understand why you would want jester to be forced to play kingmaker, but I don't think it will really matter that much in the end. It is still going to be a roll of the die to determine who the jester feels like siding with today. Also unknown roles and stuff.

Replace Jester's haunt in general honestly. Strahm is right, since the jester won it has no stake in the game and all of its decisions are luck based.

Agreed.

I think Throne of Lies got it right: "When a Jester is lynched, no one can be voted to the stand the following day." It accurately penalizes the people who want to win by lynching (usually the town, but also the mafia if they get majority).

Yeah but that's a bit too town sided. What about a mass Jailblock to all guilty voters/abstainers?

(This would also mean that SK can be roleblocked, as it cannot kill a dead Jester)

no idea how that would be townsided because all evils gain more KPN whilst town cant lynch them

but with the base change idea i dont see the point of it. jester has won so they can do whatever they want, including randomising the kill. the kill is there to scare players into not lynching a jester and that scare factor is reduced by that random lynch ability. some jesters would just pull up an RNG anyway lol

I meant scum sided. My mistake.

Roleblocking all voters (piercing roleblock immunity) would make Jester more skillful. In addition, we could also have Para's Jester.
