The existence of this alignment is crucial in setting the evil-doers back, and turns every night into a battle of wits among the protective roles and the evil-doers. It is important for roles of this alignment to anticipate the victim that night and understand the risk in not protecting obvious options, like any confirmed Town role, especially the Jailor. Currently, only four roles exist in this alignment: Doctor, Bodyguard, Crusader and Trapper.
Some Town Protective roles also have the ability to save themselves once every game. This makes them more difficult to deal with even if their identity has been compromised.
