Lore:
At midnight, the retired Investigtor leaves his house to go for a nice walk. He was happy, not having to feel the stress of the town on relying on him, the Investigator, to uproot the source of all their problems. As he walked, he couldn't help but notice a canister of liquid, sitting on the porch of a house. Curious, the Investigator took it home and realized what was lying in plain sight. Writing down his discovery, he placed the canister carefully back on the porch, and walked back to his house with a grin on his face. He wasn't just a retired Investigator anymore. He was... the Detective.

Changes and Stuf:
- Made changes to the RNG stuff because RNG stupid af.
- Changed to a Town Support role.
- (I might make it so that they can choose three people, and then gives them the role of one of those three people... seems kind of stupid tho)
- Added S A M P L E T E X T thanks to david23400!!

this seems decent actually,
name doesn't fit town though kinda sounds like a neutral this needs a better name

detective sounds better , scavenger sounds kinda scummy and not town

can you be told your own role?
if no if theres another person with your same role can you be told about that role

are you told how many of the role there is?

if no, if theres two of a role can you be told the same role twice?

=================================================================================================

the problem with role is its rng you can be told a role you already know about like theres a jailer in this game well duh
(jailor should be excluded from this roles abilities)
or an revealed mayor (should not give as a results if mayor has reveals

i also think this role should be unique so theres less rng with multiple of this role getting the same role that other scavenger already knows about
but that would hurt evils being able to fake claim this role so you cant really do that, this would be a very a good role for evils to claim so i like it

the one thing is the order and relevance of roles you are told is RNG its not horrible RNG but its RNG, yea psychic does that and that's why its a bad role

overall simple concept that isn't OP but its strength is RNG so i cant support this

it is good to solve random roles in game but This must be Support role not Investigative.
Because they find nothing about players and wastes a TI slot to learn Role list roles.
