Wrong.

Factional balance - understanding that whisper games are bad because they cause Town to win a disproportionate amount

Strategical balance - understanding that whisper games are bad because there's no reason to use any other strategy

Structural balance - understanding that disabling the Mayor's whispers, despite it fixing whisper games, means that a player can't use a core mechanic of the game and is still bad

This matters - educate yourself.

I take it Montgomery/Millicent Moneybags would be the skins for this? (Funnily enough Politician is a card game role, image looks just like Montgomery but apparently it isn't him (illuminati) so yeah, that's neato)

/support, anyway
Agent - Role Idea - Neutral Chaos role, undecided on goal.
May work better as a NC Double Agent that also has abilities against Town but must double-cross both the evils AND town, but the goal may be too hard.

Town of Salem - The Underworld [DLC/Faction Idea]

I usually play as anything, now.

Can you explain why you support it?

Don't really see any errors myself. Sorry for not seeing this, the forum needs a notification system >-> I support it as it's a good, balanced role, and I would like to see it in the game. Also, it's a good counterpart to the card game role.

i feel like if it wins with everyone, there's practically no point in bribing, it should probably be some part of the Mafia, like the concept though.

It doesn't win with Town
so it doesn't win with everyone

If you steal a vote from a blackmailed player, then they cannot do the vote spam thing to say there are blackmailed. I am not sure if this is a bad or good thing for the politician.

Also, do you think it should just be one button for the voting system? It'll still give you two votes, one for yourself and one that you stole, but it'd be like a mayor. It just hits one button and both votes go in or should it be like the way you have it, and make it look like the other person that you stole a vote from is voting for someone when they really aren't.

You'd have to anticipate them being blackmailed, and since you are not mafia, that would be clutch if you could pull that off. Should be an achievement.

Or how about bribe someone who is quiet in the game and in the Voting phase you can spam the votes to think the town that your bribed target is blackmailed. ;)

That will not work because the target may then speak up, disproving that theory.
