Role Cop

Role Type: Informative

The Role

A Role Cop is an investigative role that receives the role name of their target. They do not learn of the targeted player’s alignment.

As a Role Cop does not receive results indiciative of player alignment, Mafia Goons and Serial Killers with no other abilities will return the same result as a Vanilla Townie if investigated.

In the case of an x-shot role, the Role Cop is told how many shots the role started with, not how many shots have been used/remain.
