Hey BMG, when's your next DLC announcement??
Also no I am not going to get a PFP because... (JK I'm gonna change my PFP every time I get a new role, if I can find a good picture for it that is)


My best role ideas:

The Possessor

Arms Dealer

The Reaper

Witch Hunter

Serial Killer (Buff)

VH, but you can't read chat and there's a delay, and it doesn't side with Town specifically. What exactly would this do?
PM me anything you'd like me to put in my signature, and I'll do it!

Don't think this should have to hunt PB/Pest. PB/Pest is basically just an NK, and having this in the game would just make it harder for it to win when it really doesn't need a nerf. Also, while the whole hunting Coven makes sense, it isn't really fair to have a non-town just hunt you for the whole game. Also this shouldn't turn into survivor after failing a kill, and should instead not be able to attack for the rest of the game, making it still possible for them to win while punishing them for attacking the wrong person. Reminds me of old Inquisitor in Throne of Lies, but I don't think this will work as it mostly helps Town.

I was thinking about only hunting the PB, but then I changed it to pest, which probably wasn't the best choice. Maybe I'll make it so amnesiac remembering after all of them die doesn't matter, as that's how VH works currently. Do you have any suggestion on how I would punish the player for killing the wrong person?

Well it's not really VH tbh. The only similarity is the name and that you have to hunt down set roles. VH doesn't even need to worry about killing the wrong person, as they instantly attack a vampire when they visit them. This role actually needs to have some strategy to it, with who it attacks and when. VH doesn't have an investigative ability either, since it doesn't need it.
