Defense: none (possibly basic for protection from cosnig mafia)
You are an evil spirit that causes chaos by possessing town members.
Goal: have everyone die
Choose one person to possess on a full moon night. All chat you do during the day will come from them, and they cannot chat(as if blackmailed).
You can use your day ability to move back to your body. The person you possessed will then be silent for the rest of the day, as if blackmailed. You cannot switch back after using your day ability.
The possessed cannot talk as long as you are possessing them.
You can use any chat related abilities of the person you possess, such as access to the mafia chat, or talking to the dead if you possess a medium.
you will not see names in the mafia or vampire chats.
You can vote as that person and as you during the day (first vote appears as them, second as you)
You will remain in possession of the person until they die, you die at night, you are jailed or roleblocked, or you activate your day ability.
If you possess a vampire, you will be able to vote on who to bite in the vampire chat
If you are converted to a vampire, you will lose possession.
You can only possess on full moon nights.
If you are lynched while possessing someone, you will remain in possession for 1 more day.
Your possession visit is ethereal.
you cannot possess a mayor once they reveal.
You can only possess a revealed mayor for three days.
You can win with the vampires, SK, witch, arso, plaguebearer/pestilence, survivor
witch control will make you possess the second target if you have not possessed anyone yet, regardless of moon state.
witching has no effect if you are already possessing a target, or you are targeted to a revealed mayor.
You can win when you are dead
You cannot possess anyone more than once.
Unsure of invest/sheriff/consig results. Sheriff result would depend on how easy spectre is to find and kill, in order to balance the role.
Win x number of games
A haunting presence: possess your first victim
Complete control: After possessing your victim, continue possession until the end of the game.
Unsuspected: win while still alive
I wanna be me: possess yourself (only possible through witch)
I wanna be the very best: possess a revealed mayor
Double Agent: possess a mafia, and have a mafia lynched within two days.
Welcome Back!: Be converted to a vampire while possessing a vampire
Commander of Gods: Possess pestilence
Hired spirit: Possess a jester, and get them lynched while possessing them.
This role might be too powerful, or to easy to find. tell me what you think!
just to be clear, you do not know the role of the person you possess.
I do like the idea of a NE role like this that cant kill directly, but still wants everyone to die.
It may seem a bit OP and annoying, but smart players will be able to recognize patterns over a few days in who is staying silent, who seems to want to be lynched, etc. calling out the spectre and either forcing them to unposess or be lynched. Even if they unposess, smart players will notice the formerly talkative player going silent. It is a powerful chat-based role that can be recognized by intelligent players.
