Roleblocker

Alignment: Any
Role Type: Manipulative
Choice: Night

The Role

Roleblocker chooses one person each Night to block. If that player has an active Night action (one requiring submission of the Night Action form), it is blocked from going through.

Passive abilities (Bulletproof, Investigation Immunity, etc.), those who are hidden from sight (Commuters, Hiders, etc), and the Strongman role cannot be affected by Roleblocks.

Players are not told when their abilities have been blocked. Investigative roles that are blocked by a Roleblocker will receive the result: “No Result”.

In Use
