The Keyword System is currently a system in the game. The Attack and Defense keywords replaced the abilities to have Night Immunity, Bite Immunity, and the ability to ignore Night Immunity.

Attack Edit

Attack is how strong your kill is. The more Attack you have, the more Defense you will ignore. Here are the four levels of attack:

  1. None - Your role cannot attack players directly.
  2. Basic - Your attacks will kill any role with a Defense value of None.
  3. Powerful - Your attacks will kill any role with a Defense value of Basic.
  4. Unstoppable - Your attacks will kill any role with a Defense value of Powerful.

Defense Edit

Defense is how resilient you are to attacks. The more defense you have, the more attacks that you protect yourself against. Here are the four levels of defense:

  1. None - Your role will die to any Attack.
  2. Basic - Your role is protected from Basic Attacks.
  3. Powerful - Your role is protected from Powerful Attacks.
  4. Invincible - Your role is protected from Unstoppable Attacks.
