Reading this, somewhat puts me at unease. Why are you so worried about finding the Serial Killer? Depending on how the game goes, the Serial Killer may be a needed asset for the Town, to avoid Mafia majority.Ish wrote:Janitor (SK) : Chooses one room per night and kills occupants. In addition, chooses a new room each night, switching the current inhabitant to his previous room. Can not be targeted by night actions (peeks and nightkills) but can be targeted by the Sniper and Veteran. Need to lynch/kill him asap, not entirely sure how to approach it though...
But there is some truth to what you say. The ideal situation, for the Mafia, would be to keep the Serial Killer alive, assuming he kills off the Town Members. If the Serial Killer dies, the risk of the Mafia getting caught increases. As such, the Mafia often lose if the Serial Killer dies too early, due to the lack of night kills. However, the Serial Killer mustn't live too long either. For the longer he lives, the greater the risk of him posing a threat by killing the Mafia instead of the Town. The ideal case for the Town would be to kill the Serial Killer as soon as possible, to lessen the amount of nightkills in game. But were the game to progress, Town ought to rethink. The later the game goes, and the more Mafia alive, the more the Town needs the Serial Killer to cooperate with them.
So we should kill the Serial Killer asap, but if we don't find him (which we are likely won't), we should keep him alive, for the time being.
With all the above said, lets say we decide to kill the Serial Killer. The ideal situation for the Mafia would be exactly what you suggest, to let the Veteran shoot him. By doing so, the Sniper will still have a bullet to shoot one of the Town Members. As such, I highly recommend the Veteran not to attempt to shoot the Serial Killer. Because as long as the Serial Killer lives, and the Veteran refuses to shoot him, the Sniper can't use his shot. Out of self-preservation, he'll decide to wait for the moment he may need it. If he still decides to use his bullet to shoot someone who's not the Serial Killer, then the Mafia will desperately want to lynch the Serial Killer. But they can't. By attempting to vote the Serial Killer, they'll reveal themselves, allowing the Veteran to kill 1 of them and us to lynch them afterwards. As such, the Sniper will preserve his bullet.Ish wrote:Veteran: Able to shoot and kill one player (targets a player directly, not their room) during the game.Super beneficial, as its the only village night action we can carry out on the SK, to remove him from the game. Otherwise we'll have to predict who the SK is by voting style/posts etc.
I've to disagree with you. Rather than rendering actions useless, it's better for the Hotel Manager to attempt to have the Mafia teamkill one another. And if it's not a teamkill, the Hotel Manager will get a lead on who the Mafia attempted to kill in the first place (someone likely innocent, unless the SK also switched rooms or the Mafia targeted one of their own).Ish wrote:Hotel Manager: Once per night, can choose any two rooms and swap the occupants.Will want make use of the empty room as much as possible, i think? because it can lead to a lot of mafia/sk actions being rendered useless
In regards to your alignment, I've mixed feelings. I want to vote for you, but I also don't want to.
