Flavor text
Spoiler: When a Guardian kills it comes up as: “(name) was skinned alive by a Guardian”
When Guardians get their target on D1: “(name) is the god of this forsaken world, protect them with your life!”
When people are hung instead of target due to Hypnotist: “Suddenly (all hypnotised people names and hypnotiser) pull (target) away from the noose and proceed to hang themselves instead!” (Then it goes on almost like the dead-body phase at the start of the day with the message “___ just hung themselves, they were a ___!”)

I know it may be confusing reading "target" twice. But in with the Saviour. For example "Intoxicator" The target you select defends "the chosen one". So try to understand that, as im too lazy to go edit it all.

Yeah but by the time their target dies it would wipe out half the town, a huge gamechanger.

Still interesting, I like the concept.

A faction as a GA is a bad idea. The role concepts are pretty interesting though.

you should say why it's bad. Plus GA is a coven exclusive.
I don't hate the idea but the faction overall seems chaotic and some of their 'mechanics' might be seen as bad or breaking a core rule. I find them fine personally and having this faction exclusive to chaotic modes would be fun.
Check out my ideas:
The Philosophers (New Faction)
Witch Change/buff
Favourite Roles: Jailor, Transporter, Veteran, Serial Killer, Consigliere, Mayor, Godfather and Witch
Disliked Roles: Framer, Arsonist, Medium and Retributionist
I prefer editing and balancing roles more than creating roles.
My Ranked Name is usually Monarchy with the demon skin who has a ghost pet.

I feel as though this is a great idea, if BMG were to make other expansions I feel like you would have to cycle between vanilla, coven, and other factions as you already do with vanilla vs coven. This could be similar to how Witch is a vanilla exclusive and the roles added with coven are coven exclusive then add these roles as Guardian exclusive alongside maybe a few other roles to make it a proper expansion. Though if this were added I feel like a psycho expansion where they replace mafia with your other fan expansion of demons would be a more proper idea (though this is likely not going to happen). Eventually if this game has a ton of expansions it would be cool to see the last option when cycling game modes would be mixed with a few custom game modes you can't normally do, like Guardians and Mafia in a game or all any with 2 random factions paired against each other and a few of the roles from each different expansion mixed in. Though this is only theorycrafting it would be a nice thing to see if this game becomes large enough.
