A werewolf rolelist

A werewolf rolelist

Anonymous

This is a suggested list of roles for playing a game of werewolf, specially with lycanthrobot. See Rules and variants of the game and the @lycanthrobot help.

In the variants you can see that you can play with more than one role per person, in this case, the distinction between person and role is important. In the following I will make that distinction. For example when I say "Pick the role of someone", it means you have to pick a person and one of their roles (they are numbered: 1st 2nd etc) or if I say "Kill all the wolves" it means you have to kill all the roles that are wolves, not all the people that have roles that are wolves.

The following contains a list of 74 roles, divided into Wolf Team, Village Team and Other Teams.

Wolf Team

Ordinary Wolf:

Abilities: Decide on a person to kill with the other wolves. The wolves can decide to kill themselves. They must choose someone to kill.

Goal: Kill anyone that does not belong to the wolf team while there is at least one wolf or dog alive.

Albino Wolf:

Abilities: Same as wolves + in the even nights you can pick one of the wolves in your team and kill it.

Goal: Be the only person left alive.

Alpha Wolf:

Abilities: Same as wolves + once in the game you can infect one of the wolves' victims. This person will not die, they will become a wolf for the rest of the game instead. This does not happen if someone saves the victim from dying. You will have already used your ability, though.

If playing with more than one role per person, one of the roles of the victim is selected randomly to be the wolf, if this role dies, it is effectively as if the role of wolf would have died, i.e. the villagers don't have to kill their other roles to win and this person cannot vote who to kill in the night.

Goal: Kill anyone that does not belong to the wolf team while there is at least one wolf or dog alive.

Wolf Cub:

Abilities: Same as wolves + if you die, the next night the wolves will kill an extra person.

Goal: Kill anyone that does not belong to the wolf team while there is at least one wolf or dog alive.

Incognito Wolf:

Abilities: Same as wolves + you seem to be innocent to the roles that can obtain information about if someone is a wolf or not (for example to the detective, but not to the seer).

Goal: Kill anyone that does not belong to the wolf team while there is at least one wolf or dog alive.

Slut:

You know who the wolves are and they know who you are.

Abilities: Pick someone every night to sleep with. This person will not be able to use any special abilities during that night. You can't sleep with someone from the wolves' team. Sluts are not affected by the power of another slut. If you sleep with someone that had used his single-use ability, that person will have spent their ability.

Goal: You win if the wolves win.

Dog:

You know who the wolves are and they know who you are.

Swapping/changing effects

Wizard:

Abilities: You swap positions between two people each night. This means, everything that should happen to Alice will happen to Bob, and viceversa. The wizard is inmune to "disability characters" (i.e. slut, gipsy, etc). The actions of two wizards or any other roles that swap effects (baton passer but not hypnotist) do not interfere, if Alice is swapped with Bob and Bob with Carol, then Bob will receive the actions of Alice and Carol and Alice and Carol will receive Bob's. A murder can become two! It can also be the case that Alice and Carol are the same person so whatever was going to happen to Bob happens to this other person twice and also the other way around!

The village is not told that something happened with the silversmith, they will just see a wolf dying.
