heck no

I think I can see that as a nk rather then a neut at that point

Anything to make BD more likely to exe a Pretender claim.

I don’t like this

it’s not even that, it’s the fact that it makes the pretender a neutral killing all in name but not type. It’s like old inquisitor, we called him a NK thats secretly disguised as a neutral investigative.

Yes

Mechanic changes: all good.
CW day ability sounds fun, but only empowering social or offensive will actually do anything.
Noble Twin: okay this is a bit confusing. I’ll have to look over all day abilities, but most of them are evil I guess, so this is mostly an offensive ability?

Innoculate and CM were the ones I was thinking of.
Also can be used as a bleed/ chill repelant with proper placing.

Time to befriend an Alchemist o.O
Death immunity of the finest.

It’s targetted on you, so can’t steal a Stoneskin for yourself :frowning:

Updated the suggestion after initial feedback. :+1:

This is good, but poison should not be included. Inoculate can still block it.

This is good, but the nerf should just be reverted instead. It wasn’t confusing(at least no more so than framing), and you should not balance for non-balance reasons

It’s fine as is. The current one discourages sheeping and makes hunter a valid fake claim.

Hunter and Poacher should just have total occupation immunity back.

No. Redirecting knights and hunters is a valid strategy, and if anything Mark should make you occupation immune rather than bear.

I’d prefer alch and pretender instead of these two since they don’t have to survive to win.

Unsure about this. I agree that a sellsword shouldn’t be able to win by doing nothing, but suiciding to buy time is a valid strategy.

Should work on BD as well. There is no good reason why it shouldn’t.

Pretender needs a rework but this isn’t it.

I support everything else.

You cannot block a poison

And then you have 2 people who are last to vote at the same time and it shoots “randomly”

Pretender has perma death immunity before stepping :confused:

Pretender is infinitely death immune

That actually false it has a vote order and trust me ive been in a game were hunter was being voted up but i couldn't vote him up otherwise i would have died and in turn cause the unseen to lose since i was the Assassin and we didnt have majority til we kill and convert one bd. We needed a misvote otherwise the MM would have been voted up next Hunter was sus as being the assassin

Actually no not really. When you vote someone it says X accused someone. If they did it exactly at the same time one would be before the other one. It’s no different from voting them first at the exact same time

This happens when you get 9/8 required votes to up someone. “Randomly” because you can see, say, [5] being the last vote, but the arrow shoots [13] due to being the last required vote.

that’s a bug and not a mechanic issue then

9/8 shouldn’t happen as that’s not how majority works
