Isn't this just a buffed Consigliere that gives other roles info?

Also, it could be very dangerous if you don't select an evil role, I think this could be better for town than evil, not saying that it should be town but it could mess up and give someone like the Jailor good info.

Just like witch can accidently send TP into a killing roles target, or send a scum they found into vet.

Granted, this is more town sided.

It has to support evils, that's the only way it wins. Also, you could choose not to target anyone. And it's not a buffed Consigliere because you give others information.

Well, if you confirmed find a Mafia or NK, you can give them the information and sweep the population.

All it really does is expand their claimspace and give more information. How is it OP?

This is a great concept and all, but one probelm is that it can't find scum easily unlike witch.

It can investigate in the day, and finds evils just as fast as witch. Although it can't really use it's ability before it finds an evil, the information is powerful enough to balance it out.

It's a role with a needless amount of complexity. If you want to have a role that can share information with evils while being easy to learn, look no further than Witch.

its nerfed witch that can privately chat with evils and isn't even told roles of people

accidently telling a town a evil allies role is huge anti synergy

i don't see how this role is good at all

the witch shares info by controlling a person finding out they are evil control different person whisper evil person x is that role and they know the evils role since they controlled them your role shares info better but at the cost of accidentally sharing it with town it's just bad

This role also tells who a player visited/visitors were. This role finds evils twice as fast. You forgot these two attributes:
-You can target yourself.
-You can only gossip to someone if you know they are evil.

ok the clarifications make more sense

but if you can pick yourself why would you ever choose to pick another, you should just pick yourself get info then gossip to an evil you found letting someone else get the info the is too huge a risk, why even give the option for it if it's obv picking yourself is better in every case

so its a tracker LO, consig , that has the option to pass the ability on to others which is way to risky and should never be done

it also talk to evils at night through gossiping

its basicly a witch that can talk privately cause LO tracker ability isn't that useful, thing is witch can rb and make people vig shoot town this, this role cant really stop town in anyway

this role is good at

finding evil allies fast
sharing info with evils
faking tracker and LO and invest

this isn't useful enough in my eyes witch can do some of these things but it can help stop town more then your role

I'd say the information is useful, and giving info to others is quicker and less risky because whispering is suspicious. It makes evils stronger by giving them more claimspace, and information.

This role is fine , but it would be better if the second target only knew the alignment of the first role instead of the exact role.

BTW , how do i send a picture* in my comment.
