I support this entirely.

Not sure why you didn't just bump the original one though.

The original thread had too many unnecessary comments. (Not the critics, just in general)

SK with no control over kills, still /nosupport this.
Factional balance - understanding that whisper games are bad because they cause Town to win a disproportionate amount

Strategical balance - understanding that whisper games are bad because there's no reason to use any other strategy

Structural balance - understanding that disabling the Mayor's whispers, despite it fixing whisper games, means that a player can't use a core mechanic of the game and is still bad

This matters - educate yourself.

it's kinda like a buffed SK/MAFIOSO who is undetectable to the lookout and unkillable by the BG, you'd have to give them some kind of weakness

but I like the idea of it!

You can still be caught by a Lookout if you attack your target directly.

You can still be killed by a Bodyguard that you didn't follow.

Best way to make this role completely fair would be to remove night immunity. It would still be a good role, even without it.

Remember that posts must have some sort of substance and related to the role, thanks.

Last post got removed. boring

Either way, terrible idea. All NK's need night immunity to properly function.

What are the interactions with Vet?

If your target visits the Vet while on alert, you will kill the Vet and the vet will kill your target, but you will be unseen by Lookouts. If you target a Vet and they go on alert, I assume you die rather than kill them and live.

As far as I remember: Vet alerts and Shadowalker dies, no matter if he targetted the Vet directly or followed someone to there. The Veteran will not die since they are nightimmune...

It's an interesting idea, but it's just a SK who doesn't know who to kill (but is undetectable by lookout)

How does this interact with WW?

If you follow somebody who visits the WW target, do you also die?

Only half of the time with Lookout.

Yes.

If you visited a ww targeting someone, you will die as well.

WW kills you in every scenario.

You may get a kill, but it would be for nothing.

After further evaluation, I cannot support this role.

It's a hardcounter to Lookout.
It's a hardcounter to Bodyguard.

Those two reasons are enough for me to not like this role.

I can see two easy ways to fix both of these problems.
- Make it detectable by lookout when you kill your target's target.
- Make them effected as normal if their target is being bodyguarded.

It is neither. The problem with it is that it is an RNG SK, and it's a problem that can't be fixed.
