Transporter is Town Protective!?

Postby kitty2cat » Tue Dec 02, 2014 11:10 am

I came across a Custom game of Town of Salem on Youtube where the game ended in a draw because the Mafia couldn't kill the last Townie.
The person recording the game really wanted to know what his role was since he couldn't figure out how he prevented the Mafia from killing him. The player said his role was a secret and left without saying.
In the comment section, most people were discussing how the guy either had to be a Doctor or Bodyguard since there was only a Town Protective left since the 2 Supports were dead(Transporter and Medium or Retributionist). A few commenters, however, were saying his role was an obvious Escort since Transporter was Town Protective and not Support. They pointed out that the Town of Salem official website says it is Protective.
I looked up an old Town of Salem video where the player was a Transporter(back when you chose your map and character after choosing your name). It clearly said beside Transporter that it was Town Protective.

This really surprised me. I had always thought that Transporter was Town Support.
I just felt that I should shared this for all the people who play Custom, where players like to use Town Support etc. in the role list.
I wonder how many Mediums, Escorts or Retributionists got lynched or executed because people believed that all the Town Support were dead?

Thing is...If the Mafia was a Godfather, the game would've kicked in and declared Mafia victory. If the Player was a Transporter or an Escort the Godfather or Mafioso would have instantly won the Stalemate with the Transporter still alive.
Also in any case the Mafia would know is if he was a transporter cause they would get the messages
"You were Transported to another location!"
"Someone tried to attack you but you are immune at night!"
"Your target was immune!"

You said you saw the Transporter as Town(Protective) in an old video...maybe it was a typo problem in the role card, i believe the Jester was always listed as Neautral(Evil) but the role card said Neutral(Benign) a few months ago, maybe its something similar.

As of now, i'm pretty sure Transporter's Role card says 'Town(Support)' AND effectively uses only Town(Support), Random Town and Any slots to spawn.
Favorite Role: Jailor :3
Loved Roles: Lookout, Vet, Transporter, BodyGuard, Consigliere.
Likeable Roles: Other Townies, Witch, Arsonist.
Okay Roles: Amnesiac, Jester, Janitor.
Passable Roles: Survie, SK, Other Maf.
Detested Roles: Executioner, Framer.

Transporter Role card had a typo that said it was Town Protective rather than Support.
Do not PM me about your open appeal. It will be ignored.

Leftover from alpha, possibly? Considering it used to be classified as that.. It's as Turd said, just didn't get updated.

No matter what it is, with what tends to happen because of the transporter, it should probably be changed to Neutral Evil.
