The Overlord sat in his secret office outside of the town. No one in the town knew who he really was, nor where he lived, or how he got in charge. The only form of communication was a telegraph he would use directly to the mayor. Recently, the Overlord got a transmission from the mayor, the mafia issue had been mostly sorted out, but a new problem had arrived. The Coven. He got on his personal railroad and road to the town. He used brutal methods, including ordering the mayor, protecting himself with a bullet proof vest, or ordering a hit on his enemies, for the town to come out on top. There was only one member of the Coven left, the Coven leader. The mayor was done listening to the town's dictator, and he made an announcement to the town that as soon as the Overlord was found, he would be lynched on the spot. The next morning, the mayor was found with a bullet in his head.

You have to win with people that cannot win with you. I don't see how that would work. Other than that, it has an indirect attack, which is overpowered, and controlling a vote is near useless for this role, unless it's a stalemate and you need to lynch the last evil. It has a unique gameplay, so I don't really know what else to say about it.

wdym "Town Evil"?
I think you meant to say Town Support or Neutral Evil?

There are huge problems with the role.
    1.) The role is too easily confirmable, it's like a mayor or jailor.
    2.) The role can kill twice with no repercussion, it's better than a vigi
    3.) It's a jack of all trades, it makes other roles useless(such as vigilante)

I think the whole point of this role is it has to win with Town, but Town cannot win with it. That is probably why this role is so overpowered.

That doesn't solve anything, the Overlord can still carry the town until the end. Overlord is then lynched and both town and overlord wins.

That's true. I don't think the OP meant that, but yeah that works I guess.

I should probably put that the overlord has to survive until then end to win. I also meant to say that it wouldn't show up in random town either. It would probably show up with another possible Town Evil role, maybe traitor as an actual role?

And yes. As in town evil it would probably be another alignment, where it's technically part of town, but is also evil.
