The Role

The Poisoner can target one person each Night to kill them. Unlike with Vigilantes and Serial Killers though, the Poisoner’s target is not instantly eliminated. Instead, they usually survive until the end of the following Day.

Depending on the set-up, a Poisoned player may be given Post Restrictions during their final Day as a side effect of their slow death.

Poisoned players are not notified that they have been poisoned.
