Way too easy. The bard can easily out the person who killed them, and possibly even out the whole mafia/coven/vampires faction as a bonus.

The "if you survive" part of the goal, on the other hand, has the problem of not really interacting with other players' goals (though the Pirate also has this problem). Also, you're pretty much guaranteed to succeed at it if you survive to the end of the game (and so don't get to do your alternate goal).
My best role ideas:
Conqueror
Apocalypse Survivor
Brilliand
Bodyguard
Bodyguard

What exactly does it mean for the "entire living town to be entertained"? What quantifies their level of entertainment? How is The Bard going to be able to affect that in their favor?
Nicolas Cage was the greatest thing about the movie Kick-Ass, and everyone here knows it.

For this role, "Entertaining" is like "Dousing"; the bard just has to visit each person once. It has nothing to do with actual entertainment.
My best role ideas:
Conqueror
Apocalypse Survivor
Brilliand
