Doomsayer (Town Killing)

Postby EgyptFalcon » Tue Jun 18, 2019 2:11 am

Doomsayer

Town (Killing)

Consigliere - Your target babbles about the apocalypse. They must be a Doomsayer.

Additional Information:
Jailed rampages can't be predicted.
This eventually morphed into a sort of reverse Bodyguard. Let me know what you think.

Lore:
The Doomsayer was always considered the "wise old man" of the town. Even the Mayor respected him. Everyday, he visited random Townies to predict their future, whether it be fortune or death. The Doomsayer was always loyal to the town, living there ever since he was born, and thus, when the Mafia scum came, he had the powerful urge to eliminate them using his mystical abilities. One night, he visits The Godfather, the latter keeping his charade as a famous businessman in the town. The Doomsayer sees through it, however, and stands up from his chair, ethereal auras surrounding him. His eyes glow blue and and he speaks in a deep, echoing voice, "You wish doom upon the town! Your blood will be on my hands, Godfather, as I, the Doomsayer, shall bring doom to you.." The aura fades and the Godfather walks out of his house, a polar chill running down his spine. The next day, the Godfather himself was found dead. His eyes were sunken and his body was limp, as if his soul was sucked out of him. The Doomsayer smiles in satisfaction.

Can this role kill a Godfather? You say the attack is "reflected", but a witched Godfather can't kill himself.

Either way, this sounds rather weak in comparison to the Veteran.

(Come to think of it, the interaction with an alerting Veteran would be nutty. Yeah, this role would have to have astral visits.)

A bit Escort-like now, perhaps? I think you have the balance right (it's neither OP nor UP), but it's a bit boring.

It doesn't stop the attack -- it just attacks the attacker.

I mean I like more simplistic roles -- the game isn't so much about memorizing role interactions as it is discerning the players behind the roles. Plus TK is a pretty simple concept in general.
