Diverter (Coven Evil)

Postby Ezradekezra » Thu Aug 27, 2020 11:38 am

Role Name: Diverter

Role Alignment: Coven (Evil)

Attack: None (Basic with Neconomicon)

Defense: None

Abilities:
- Select a player to target each night
- Select a player to focus on each night

Attributes:
- All non-Coven members who attempt to visit the targeted player will instead visit the focused player.
- You cannot target a Coven member, but you can focus on a Coven member.
- With the Necronomicon, you will deal a basic attack to the targeted player.
- You will visit the targeted player, not the focused player.
- Players will not be alerted that they were diverted to another player's house, and players will not be alerted if they were either the targeted player or the focused player.

Notifications:
- You have decided to target [Player] tonight.
- You have instead decided to target [Player] tonight.
- You have decided to focus on [Player] tonight.
- You have instead decided to focus on [Player] tonight.
- You have canceled your action.

Goal:
Same as all Coven roles.

Win Conditions:
Same as all Coven roles.

Investigator Results:
Sheriff - Suspicious (without the Necronomicon); Seems innocent (with the Necronomicon)
Investigator - Your target likes messing with people's plans. They must be an Escort, Consort, Transporter, Hypnotist, or Diverter.
Consigliere - Your target uses magic to make people go elsewhere. They must be a Diverter!

Achievements:
Distraction - 1 Diverter win
Interruption - 5 Diverter wins
Disturbance - 10 Diverter wins
Diversion - 25 Diverter wins
Deadly Diversion - Divert 3 players into an alerting Veteran
That was Close! - Divert a rampage attack away from the targeted player
Distraction Dance - Divert an Escort or Consort away from their target

Additional Information:
- Flavor text on Investigator result courtesy of my better Investigator results idea (see my signature).
- Unique role, like with all other Coven roles.
- Transports take priority over Diversions. If the Diverter targets Player A and focuses on Player B, while a Transporter swaps Player A with Player C, then the Diverter will actually target Player C and focus on Player B.

It's basically an evil Transporter. I'm not so sure about the name. What do you all think?

Evil transporters are a no cuz that's too broken and completely negates most town roles. TT Trans makes this point clear.

I'd like to add the change that the Diverter cannot appear in VIP games.

Just make all TPs and LOs that visit jailor go to medusa. Too OP I think
Still not having coven is the worst thing ever
