self visits dont show anymore no other role in the game can see a person visit themselves neither tracker or LO can do this

your role would be an exception i assume, adding exceptions to role makes them less likely to added to the game though

the concept seems good

at first glance balance seems ok to me

only glaringly obv thing i see is no visit gives 2 points this is very very common thing i would make no visits give no points and take away no points

also doing nothing should make you lose a point like you got roleblocked or jailed

lastly you are missing some stuff like hexmaster and hypnotist (maybe also pirate and plaguebearer)
you should definitely have the first two though i feel like hexmaster should be loss of points and hypnotist should be gain points not sure how much though

question time

is LO / tracker considered investigating?

and is there a reason it has this ability it seems to have nothing to do with the role at all and is town sided because it confirm roles of people

It can reveal what you have observed to the town once per game.


do u have to keep observing once you hit 5 they way you have this worded implies you do

Get a multiple of 5 points by the time you die.
l would like if you did have to keep observing cause i feel hitting 5 would be to easy



overall i like this idea a lot its very unuqie but i do feel it wins way to easily it points need to be raised or u lose points if you do nothing or have to stay at the points u need the whole game or before you die

so the england sent a spy to the town of salem cool lore too i like it

So an investigator-electrician hybrid that works with a complicated point system? Not really a chaos role tbh.

Id need to talk with JGaming about some of this but this is what i think the answers should be -

Yes, no visits happen with 13 (3 half visit) roles all game, so maybe the points should be taken down from 2 to 1.

Lookout and Tracker are both TI so id assume both are investing
The "Reveal" makes it have an impact of the game other than the chance of someone dying because of this role.
The multipal of 5 could be changed to a diff number, ill ask JGaming

I shall add Hex and Hypno

If it's not Chaos, what would it be? Can't be NB really, those shouldn't kill or at the very least shouldn't kill when it's out of their control. Can't be NE, it can harm evils just as easily as Town, they have no control over who dies. Can't be NK, doesn't kill enough. I doubt it'd belong to a faction.

It would be a chaos role as HTE just explained.

Why else don't you like it?

Lemon, if you're going to say that then post a link to the role. Doesn't Electrician "charge" people at night, and any time a "charged" person visits another they both die? That's not the same as this role.

That's one aspect of the role. Stop focusing one ONE part of the role, the ENTIRE REST OF THE ROLE is completely different. That means if two people visit the same guy, that one guy dies. That's different from Electrician anyway.

Electrician -

E charges A
E charges B
A and B visit
Both die-

Observer -
O visits A - A visited B
O vists C - C visted B
B died. As 2 observed targets visited the same person.

Plus - totally different goals and thats only 1 part.

Shall I add Remembering, Reting, Igniting. Or leave them as self visit only?

Added ignition, remembering and reviving

Question for all -
Should this role have any immunities / Auto-vest
What do you guys think?


Also if a Necro uses a Bodyguard body on themselves -
Is that a no visit (as it was the ghoul)
A protect (as it was a BG)
A self visit (as they made BG go to self)
All of the above?
Or do i need to add Necro ability to points

no visiting is till two points lol

its not just non visiting roles that don't visit

hexmaster visit is astral so you wouldn't see it so that would count as a non visit same with necromancer (sorta medusa without book)

psychic jailor mayor and medium and pirate don't visit during the night

any role that gets jailed or rbed wont visit

also even though you have them as points being jailed or rbed means you didn't visit so technically you did nothing with those effects i'm assuming they wouldn't stack and you wouldn't get the points for do nothing

you own description of the role is counterintuitive to this as well

Attributes:
-You gain points depending on what a person does to another person.


they did nothing at all to anyone and they get points?

i still think it should be 0 points or at least just one point 0 points make more sense though casue it reports on what someone does to someone else nothing is no action so 0 points makes sense

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Get a multiple of 5 points by the time you die.


so i can get 5 or 10 points or 15 or 20 and win?

are you forced to use the ability?

if not i would just get to 5 point then do nothing and afk when i die i win

the goal is bad

-----------------------------------------------

and why would i want to do this?

-It can reveal what you have observed to the town once per game.


it doesn't help the goal at all and can end up hurting you if LO or tracker matches the info to the night you visited a person
