- You cant chat with him if he became mafia member.
- UNIQUE ROLE.
Goal - Win with the person you revived
Sheriff - NS
Investigator - Your target works with undead, they must be retri or necromancer
Consigliere - Your target is an evil reviver, they must be Necromancer

I don't see this being very balanced in ranked.
NE rolls Necromancer, now you have 2 NKs and potentially 3 kills per night, 4 if the any is NK too.
But it's unique, i'll give it that, and it takes the ret down a notch

interesting concept, but the problem of revived people is that their name is known and their revival us announced (and by the role). Change it into that the Necro drugs an non Mafia member to become their ally instead. Otherwise this role would be pointless.

But the point is, they don't know hes an SK. He could just be a rezzed target by the retrib, or an SK by the Necromancer.

I like it

The point is, that currently there is the announcement that "<playername> was revived by a Retributionist.", so if someone else is revvied without said announcement, then it is clear that this was the Necromancers doing and the revived killer will fall. If the announcement will change then that role might have a chance, but then the freshly revived person will be checked for suspicious activity. This is additionally a nerf to the Retri, which might be not that desired.

Yes FINALY, someone finaly made a good EVIL retributionist role.
But what if there is a game with no town? You know mafia vs neutral.
Anyway I like the role.

Wat
They still get the announcement
Of course the town gets the announcement

Retri needs a nerf anyways

I like the idea, especially considering Retributionist is a bit overpowered, especially in combination with Jailor or Mayor.

I wouldn't mind seeing this in a match, gives more power to the neutral faction of the game; which is massively underpowered as almost every Ranked game I see, NKs usually die early or get outvoted from being outnumbered by mafia or town.

People would notice if a serial killer appears out if nowhere right after somebody got revived…

If the revived person became a Jester and gets lynched again, has the Necromancer won with them?

Then I recommend to remove the Exec from the list as well, sicne they might become a Jester when all townys are dead and then we have the same problem as above.

My issues are overwhelming the Mafia, and it can be easily shot down if there was a previous revive.

it will be balancer in ranked, and mafia needs a buff.

town can mislynch still, because the previous reviver can be necromancer.

I'd expect them to use their ability on a non-confirmable role so to make sure they don't die again.
If it's just the Necromancer and a townie or mafia what happens? Do they instantly lose or are they allowed to bring a person back at the last possible moment?

Sounds very similar to Zombie in Warcraft 3 mafia... I personally hated playing zombie for the simple fact that you had to time your revies exactly with the person's death.

how did you buff the role

this role will be completely ineffective when anyone with a brain is playing. can you please start reviewing your role ideas before you post them? you shit them out every day like clockwork and it's getting annoying

like you provided a reason why its shit lel

it was only sk before that, noe its MSup, MDecept, SK, Arso, Witch

My necromancer wasn't interesting? ;D Regardless... This is more than a little op. It's basically an overpowered mafia ret, because who would raise anything but mafia? Essentially adding to votes to mafia, and another player... This could destroy a game n4.
