This is way too confusing with some stuff being mimicked from a-b and some from b-a, or are they just examples and everything done on either of them are done on both of them? It's not too clear.

I agree, I really like the name wellwisher. Mimic doesn't really seem to fit it that well. Sorry for making it harder for you to decide on a name :oops:

That sounds better, and in that case it's like an NE transporter (I assume that's what you're going for) but buffed( or nerfed depending on the situation), so this actually sounds pretty good.

Go with what makes you happiest. (which I'm pretty sure is Wellwisher)
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.

Wellwisher: one who wishes well to another: an admiring supporter or fan
-Merriam Webster Dictionary
Yeah, I don't see how the name 'Wellwisher' matches this role's abilities or attributes. Though there's nothing wrong with the relation between a role's name and its attributes being a bit loose, it should be present. There is nothing that links the name 'Wellwisher' to what this role is and does. It's important for the flavor text/lore to be accurate, you can't just name a role whatever you want just because it sounds better...

Well balance > Lore. All the lore you need if you really want it is "Wish at night at the wising well that PlayerA and PlayerB will be connected. Honestly the name has been changed enough and it doesn't need to change again. I think its fine and so do a lot of other people. Besides its not too hard to come up with how the name connects with the lore, like I said above. If it was named "Jet fighter" or "US navy seal" Or something weird like that it would need a change, but it's fine.

P.s. I like the name Wellwisher ;)

If you REALLY have to change it again, do something like spiritualist I guess. The only other name I think would be acceptable with the role without making it weird.

But I still like Wellwisher :P

'Wellwisher' does NOT mean someone who visits a wishing well. Did you not read the definition? It means someone who wishes someone to do well.

It's an ironic name ^_^

Well it could really go either way depending on what OP meant it to be, dictionary doesn't really apply.

I can't really see what the big deal is with the name. It's fine as is.

What about equalizer or distributor. Because you distribute the actions and you make everyone take equal consenquences. Not a perfect name but wellwisher seems kinda off topic and i must say i dont really like it.
I have become what i despise, a man who despises himself.

We got Kirize's Drug Dealer. We got Distributor. That does it. I'm inventing a role called the narc to fish these roles out.
