Librarian (TI)

Librarian

You are a skilled author who can find out people's secrets.

Alignment: Town (Investigative)

Attack: None
Defense: None
Special Attributes: Not Unique

Abilities: Select a role alignment each night from the role list and find out what role takes place in that alignment.

Example:

Imagine if the role list is like this:
Spoiler: Jailor
TS
TS
TI
TI
TP
RT
RT
Godfather
Mafioso
RM
RN
RN
Any
Any


The Librarian on night 1, chooses Random Neutral on the role list.
The Librarian would get an example result: "A Serial Killer takes place in this category/alignment."

The Librarian on night 2, chooses Random Mafia on the role list.
The Librarian would get an example result: "A Hypnotist takes place in this category/alignment."

========================================
Investigator Results: Your target is a Sheriff, Executioner, Werewolf, Poisoner, or Librarian.
Consigliere Results: Your target is an skilled researcher. They must be a Librarian.
Sheriff Results: Your target is not suspicious.

A very interesting idea. The role list is an unexplored space in TOS mechanics, this makes good use of it
Coroner
Informant
Cult Leader
Concealer
Stager

Other roles that can’t be linked because of the URL limit:
Stalker
Enforcer
Lawyer

T.R.A.S.H characters:
(p. 14487)
(p. 14618)
(p. 14844)

I like the idea, I just worry it would be much too powerful after enough nights.
Also, this takes away the element of surprise that Mafia can have since it can find out what the 2 RMs are easily.

Good concept, not sure how good it would be in practice.

Unique, Original. Could be a very fun role instead of a boring lookout/spy

Something never suggested before... although it can be useless when it already knows all the primary roles that takes place in the alignment.

Maybe the Librarian can turn into an Investigator when they search all the alignments? But it is quite rare that it will survive for 8-15 nights.

This helps PoE the role list and can be self confirmable by role claims. Can confirm Mafia claims as fake. We should never have roles which help PoE the role list..

Not sure what PoE is.. At least state the abbreviation of it?
