How about introducing a new role called "the talkative". It goes like, you have to do 30 posts per day, or you get hostkilled. And kdowns always gets it.
I obviously was killed before I could suicide myself, but I was thinking of perhaps a change to the Time Bomb, and perhaps a renaming.
How about this?
Time Bomb Option 1: The host decides before the game starts the night by which the Time Bomb must explode, of which the player is informed. The player can choose to explode any Night Phase, not including the first Night Phase, up to and including the Night Phase that the Time Bomb is required to explode by. The night it shall explode, it can target any other player and blow him up. If the Time Bomb is killed before the time limit is passed, it does not explode.
I was thinking that we could argue tampering or something as a reason for it to explode early, so perhaps we could do something like this
Time Bomb Option 2: The host decides before the game starts when the Time Bomb will explode, of which the player is informed. The night it shall explode, it can target any other player and blow him up. If the Time Bomb is killed before the time limit is passed it does not explode. If the Time Bomb is targeted with an investigation type ability, be it a Townie or Mafia role, the Time Bomb explodes, killing the investigating player as a result of tampering.
Well, Time Bomb 1 seems more like Kamikaze Bomb, and Time Bomb 2 seems like a... Detective exclusive PGO that kills himself too, lol?
What's so bad about the current Time Bomb? If anything, the second one is way worse than it is atm lol.
Name another role where you are basically forced to die. To be honest, I'd rather be rid of the role entirely, but that's most likely not a possibility.
The second option would mean that you couldn't willy nilly cast your Townie or Mafia Detective ability about, like you currently can, so you'd have to weigh your options before investigating.
herms....a satan soul steal role would have been so badass in that game
Instead of stealing abilities...he can steal a dead persons soul....
How would that work, Greg?
not really into the mechanics of creating roles...but,i was thinking along the lines of countering the jesus.
instead of an automatic resurrection of a townie...you have a mafia who could steal a soul to resurrect himself.
but,lets say he is the 1st lynched...hence,no souls to steal.or maybe just that,he can only use it after being lynched.
oh that would be such a mindblast...say like last game.have him resurrect on the second day like jesus.then you have the debate of believing the person who actually claims jesus.
hey,it's just a thought...so many roles for town that influence the game even after they are lynched.
vengeful/restless/jesus...hell even the new witch role to a certain extent.

So, I assume you were thinking something like this?
- Shinigami [Mafia]:
The first time that the Shinigami dies, he can resurrect himself the next Day/Night Phase by stealing the soul of a deceased player; however, if the Shinigami is the first player to die, there are no souls to steal to resurrect himself with, and thus the Shinigami is unable to continue to play.
There's also another possible idea:
- Life-Stealer [Mafia]:
The first time that the Life-Stealer dies, he can resurrect himself the next Day/Night Phase by stealing the soul of a deceased player; however, if the Life-Stealer is the first player to die, there are no souls to steal to resurrect himself with, and thus the Life-Stealer is unable to continue to play. When the Life-Stealer is resurrected, he randomly gains the role and ability of a dead player by the host using an RNG to select a dead player. Whatever the role of the dead player, the Life-Stealer becomes that role. So, if a Townie was chosen, he would join the Townies, Third-Party (not the Lover, unless you wanted something like you would then get to choose a Lover, although I think that we're removing the Lover role), or potentially his own Mafia side or another Mafia side.
