Lore -
Spoiler: Nothing was ever going to feel the same he thought, kicking puddles from the rain last night. The air felt clammy cold and a soft whistling sound came from the forest beside him. He should turn back now, but he couldn't. He had no control over his legs and where they carried him, he had done this so many times it was his painful routine; everyday I watch him, my friend, disappear into the grey mist of the morning. He picked up a bunch of withered roses below a pine tree and kept walking, leaving the road behind him.

The fence boardered the patch of grass with an old creaking gate which groaned once opened. The air inside felt different to the rest of the town but maybe that was just his ears. The man looked down. He could not believe his wife was buried there.

It was in the January, the bitter, frostbitten January when they were all still a family, sitting by the welcoming fire which burned calmly and the picture frames of them both which are not covered over like now. They sat, hand in hand, eating their evening meal when the wind was howling and the fire started to waver. A figure loomed outside their door, hand on trigger and an eye aiming down the gun through the window. The wind still blew and the figure was still anonymous to them inside who was starting to move in closer. The icy wind made the shooter's hand quiver and it was hard to fight it and wait until the man stood up and is on target. The fire blew out and was desperately trying to fight the wind and regain its warmth. That's when the wife stood up to revive the fire. But, bang.

The shooter got onto his feet quickly, slipping over the gravel. The man in window was in shock and in a desperate response to emit his vengeance he lobbed three stones across to the shadow, one missed his right foot, one missed his shoulder and the last one, that hit him in his head. The shooter collapsed, face scratched by the rocky floor but was then dragged back by the godfather in the shadows away from the vengeful reporter. From then on he decided to never trust anyone unless he had a reason behind it because he doesn't want to lose anymore, but he still doesn't know he gave me a bad concussion.


Lore (Vol 2) -
Spoiler: I still see him. Everywhere I go I see him in the corner of my eye and I turn, hoping he wouldn't recognise me. I still had an ice pack held firmly on my head from where he hit me. I pretended I was sick, I pretended the doctor couldn't cure me. It was an on the spot lie when he asked me to the funeral after his wife's demise, because of me. It was supposed to be him who was to die and my boss hasn't given up yet.

Even though I don't talk to him I still see him, frantically interviewing everyone he can around the town, comparing their past with others and judge them on that. It was mainly an excuse to forget his. I watch him through the window, the window in the safe house we meet in each night. It was me, my boss and a make-up artist who dresses as people we have killed, disgusting but it works.

The godfather slammed his fist on the dark wood table, and made a crack that ran from the focus point all the way to me. He told me to focus on what he said, I said I was, but I wasn't, I didn't want to kill my friend. The artist next to me had no leads and passed down an empty box, where all her makeup was stored. It was stolen

I set out that night, the door creaked shut and a blizzard of air blew me like a hairdryer. I saw him through his window, eyeing his documents, and through the binoculars I could see him frustrated, desperately trying to link people together in this crime scene, but he couldn't. That's because he trusted me, the real killer who murdered his wife and was aiming right for his head in that second. But then I lowered my gun, he pulled out something from his desk, making me remember that I know what he was going through. I knew this would happen, that's why I stole the makeup.

I turned my gun to the right, to a crazed man and to the naked eye it was obvious he was suffering from some traumatic experience and as fast as he could was trying to put his vest on. But he was too late, I pulled the trigger. I sprinted to his house, locking the door behind me and dragged him to his tiny bathroom. I smothered his face in makeup, trying at my best efforts to make him look like my troubled friend. It was no use, i let go and left the him to fall to the ground. I was dead tomorrow

I returned, the makeup artist greeting me at the front door, awaiting good news. I told her the truth, however she wasn't sad, nor disappointed, she was... happy. She danced around the room with an enormous smile on her face and then dragged me outside, outside towards my friends house. She knocked on the door, I was asking what she was doing. She kept quiet.

He opened the door, confused, graphite covering his hands and notes stuffed into his pockets. Then the makeup artist grabbed a wet towel from her jeans pocket and wiped her face down, and to our surprise, it was his wife. Gobsmacked, the interviewer collapsed in happiness and they both embraced. I smiled to after turning around from hearing a strange noise and seeing a shadow. Then I realised what I saw but before I could open my jaw the bullet had entered the heart of the wife and exited the heart of the husband. The godfather chuckled to himself

I think that this role could work, but is a bit underpowered right now. There should be more categories, less scum in more trustable categories and more scum in less trustable categories.

Also, the investigative results need to be changed.

What happens if two people get one category and the other gets a lower one?

I don't think it needs another category ATM and I don't really want to change it because I like the fact that there are even number of Town and Mafia in each one.

But I think the 'finding the most trusted' should be changed as yes I think it's a bit underpowered so maybe it could say both the most trustworthy and the least.

With the 2 in one and 1 in the lowest I think it will say: "Both ____ and ____ can be trusted the most but ____ cannot"

This would be a great idea if there was more NE roles and Mafia roles in Cannot be trusted, Trusted should have those roles like Godfather and Executioner to give them a chance, but other than that it's a good role idea and should be implemented

But I don't know if I should destroy the balence of good to bad because if there are a lot of bad roles all in one category they have no claims plus this role is fairly powerful with finding out 2 to 3 people's roles in an obscure range per night. Plus joint with an Investigator they can eliminate lots of evil roles quickly that have no claims

Awesome!

Postby PoptartPresident » Sun Sep 18, 2016 3:22 pm

I really like this concept!
I think this would be an excellent new town investigative role.

It's fair because every single category has a fair share of Town, Mafia, and Neutrals. So it's not overpowered.
I think this role would be specifically good at finding out who's good to listen to because you'll be able to know if someone is lying about the category of roles they fit into.
Buuuuuut I don't think it should be able to observe 3 different people. It'd be able to know everyone's role category within a matter of 5 days. That's a pretty quick. I think it should be lowered to 2 people, and only compare those 2.


I would however, like to point out/say a few things:

1) (This is only if you don't agree with the idea of lowering it down to 2 people). What happens if you choose only one person or 2 people, but not 3? Does it just compare those 2/observe that one person? If so, what're those specific messages?
2) Do you technically visit all 3 people at night? If so, this counts as the only role in Town of Salem that can visit multiple people at once. (Transporter can too, but they move people around) Which is pretty fascinating...
3) Is it unique?


Other than that, I really like this concept! It's intriguing. I think this role idea could go really far if it gets some tweaks...*in all honesty I think it'd be a great replacement for the currently overpowered and stupid spy role. Town doesn't need to see whispers

Firstly thank you for the amazing support, never yet submitted a role that has shown so much support so thank you

Anyway with your feedback I haven't actually looked at the "5 days you can investigate everyone" scenario that much but if you think about it this role compares the roles against others; so they might all be from the same category and you won't find any clues. However I am still considering 2 targets suggestion as with that it would be easier to understand, easier to program and pretty much all round simpler.

But although it is better to do this, it leaves 2 roles being compared against each other therefore should the role reveal who is the most, or the least trustworthy between the 2 (obviously not including both because umm OP much)? If I was to choose I would say that the most trustworthy should be revealed because the investigatives we have now are all out to find evildoers and not people to trust. So it can introduce 2 new aspects to the game, comparisons and investigatives that try to find people to trust

I like this! Only thing I think should be changed personally is I believe "arsonist" should be in the second category for not so trusted. Arsonist is a bit UP so I think it would benefit from being in the middle, where it could potentially be a good but also bad, but not a "for sure" bad.

Results are WAY too balanced. For example, VH is trusted and Vampire is not, but they never show up so Trusted isn't any different than Kindof.

I think you went with 6 town/5 town/4 town, which is too balanced like Investigator.
Invest relies on accurate 3/30 results to figure out people's exact roles to a fault.
Roles like these need much more confined results, putting most innocents at the top and vice-versa to generalize people's innocence. Try 8/5/3 town in each result.

Why 8? because you forgot that interviewer is a role...

Uh...isn't the whole point of this role is to assert balance? You can't have too much balance. That's why it's called "balance". Not "imbalance"



But anyways, yeah. Good idea. Just add arsonist to the Kinda Trusted group and don't forget to include the Interviewer role itself on the results.

Also, (just me maybe), I think the role would fit perfectly under the Town Investiagtive slot, and not support. Because you do technically gain information

i love your sarcasm at the end :P
And no, Town roles are supposed to REMOVE balance from Mafia and add it to Town, not create more of it so that's no progress whatsoever in catching bad guys. Unless you're talking about game/role balance, which is way different.

Here's what i suggest:
Spoiler: Trusted:
Doctor Mayor Executioner Bodyguard Godfather Investigator Sheriff Disguiser Medium Witch Interviewer

Kind of Trusted:
Escort Consort Transporter Janitor Amnesiac Survivor Jailor Lookout Forger Werewolf Framer Vigilante

Cannot be Trusted:
Serial Killer Blackmailer Spy Consigliere Veteran Jester Retributionist Mafioso Arsonist Vampire Vampire Hunter Framed targets.
Favorite roles: Framer Survivor Trapper VampireHunter Consigliere Mafioso Escort Lookout Mayor Arsonist Disguiser Veteran Bodyguard Plaguebearer Medusa Blackmailer Executioner Doctor Crusader Vigilante Vampire PotionMaster Poisoner Transporter Jester Jailor Consort Ambusher Werewolf SerialKiller Hypnotist CovenLeader Pirate Godfather Sheriff Forger ???

I agree with your suggestion however I want to keep the balence of roles equal in each so if one Neutral was to be moved into another category I'd need another Neutral to be swapped with it.

So the Neutrals in Kind of Trusted are Amnesiac, Witch and Werewolf; Amnesiac doesn't make sense in being in Cannot be Trusted, Witch is almost impossible to win as so that needs a buff therefore that leaves Werewolf. Now I don't know how many wins Werewolf has compared to Arsonist so I don't know which one needs a slight buff IMO so I don't know which to put where.

Leave your arguments below if you want Werewolf and Arsonist switching below please.

Because 2 people commented about the Arsonist problem I have added it into the Kind of Trusted category and I've added the Interviewer

I think that Jester should be in kind of trusted, because there should never be concrete evidence against a Jester.

I think you went with 6 town/5 town/4 town, which is too balanced like Investigator.
Invest relies on accurate 3/30 results to figure out people's exact roles to a fault.
Roles like these need much more confined results, putting most innocents at the top and vice-versa to generalize people's innocence. Try 8/5/3 town in each result.

Why 8? because you forgot that interviewer is a role...



Uh...isn't the whole point of this role is to assert balance? You can't have too much balance. That's why it's called "balance". Not "imbalance"

But anyways, yeah. Good idea. Just add arsonist to the Kinda Trusted group and don't forget to include the Interviewer role itself on the results.
Also, (just me maybe), I think the role would fit perfectly under the Town Investiagtive slot, and not support. Because you do technically gain information

i love your sarcasm at the end :P
And no, Town roles are supposed to REMOVE balance from Mafia and add it to Town, not create more of it so that's no progress whatsoever in catching bad guys. Unless you're talking about game/role balance, which is way different.

Here's what i suggest:
Spoiler: Trusted:
Doctor Mayor Executioner Bodyguard Godfather Investigator Sheriff Disguiser Medium Witch Interviewer
I agree with Doctor, Mayor, Executioner, Bodyguard, Godfather, Investigator, Sheriff, Witch and Interviewer being here. But I understand what your saying about the fact that this role doesn't add anything to the game because it it all balenced soooo I may need to move more town into the Trusted and less to the Cannot be Trusted. But what we can do with this role is buff underpowered roles (e.g. Werewolf) and nerf powerful roles (e.g. Consigliere) by placing them in the according places. For instance Witch being placed here gives the buff it needs to not be a suspect as Witch is super hard to win as (I haven't won as it yet and I've played around 200 games). But... if there are a lot of Town roles in a group then it can leave the evils with nowhere to hide and you can find roles that are definitely Town if all the Neutrals and Mafia in your that category are dead. Soooo it it's good and bad so idk I need help with this

Kind of Trusted:
Escort Consort Transporter Janitor Amnesiac Survivor Jailor Lookout Forger Werewolf Framer Vigilante

Cannot be Trusted:
Serial Killer Blackmailer Spy Consigliere Veteran Jester Retributionist Mafioso Arsonist Vampire Vampire Hunter Framed targets.

Can you target yourself?
Retri shouldn't be in tier 2, he is easy to confirm.

No you cannot target yourself because can then compare yourself with others to find out if people are lower then you. And you cannot target a revealed Mayor, need to add that. I think Retri should be in Tier 2 because Retri needs a nerf as he can literally bring someone back to life and doesn't have to worry about an argument explaining he is innocent

Loving it. The results are very good. The role I should very good. Here is an issue though:
The investigator results
I get that you want to use the current results for it. But this role is too good of a scum claim to not be with any scum other than blackmailer. Try the bodygaurd or werewolf result.
I have become what i despise, a man who despises himself.

True, I can see this role being really easy to fake so I think it is a good idea to fair it with scum in Investigator results

So since it's easy to fake it should be paired with a role very evil
e.g.
Interviewer Serial Killer Doctor- Has stained clothes

(I'll try to think of better ones later)

Actually it's good to have town roles that are easy to fake. Because it helps the scum. And scum aren't in a good zone of winning right now

Good role, the only problem I see right now is that it's basically a nerfed investigator, I suggust making 5 categories, with about 6 roles on each trust level.
