This is useless except to give Town a one-night buffer before losing voting majority.

That, or in the case of a mayor, which is OP as hell.

It gives the dead something to do, and since you can see the dead's vote, you can make better and more informed accusations. And dead revealed mayors only have one vote.

So basically you want a role that can do what the Medium can, but worse. Town doesn't need the one extra vote, and this role would be incredibly boring.

It's kind of a blend between mayor and medium, but not really. In late game, 1 extra vote can be useful, and a deciding vote between innocent and guilty can be a game-changer.

But I don't think Town deserves this game-changer. It's just a one-night buffer like Spectre said, anyway.

And mayor is just a two-night buffer.

And a confirmed Townie who can in the right hands lead the Town.
This is just a one-night buffer.

Which allows him to pull through after town would otherwise be in a voting minority. This role doesn't do that.

Pros: - Gives a dead person the chance to vote.
Cons: - Limited to 3 uses, No one will know who the dead guy votes for.
Best Case Scenario: A good player (like myself) knows who scum is. The Channeler allows me to vote and we end up voting the scum.
Worst Case Scenario: The dead guy is AFK or just doesn't want to vote.
Overall Impression: This is a good Retri replacement.
