With the Sherlock Holmes themed game on hold because of time constraints, I think it'd be prudent to start using a Closed Setup. What this means is that no one will know the list of roles or the factional numbers in each game. So a Doctor could be in the game, or a Tracker, or something simply unheard of. What I do think is fair would be to start constructing a list of all the Roles that might just show up to the party. I can't give Town and Scum a massive amount of strong Power Roles, but watered-down PRs and flavored Roles would be more balanced. For a twist, all of these PRs could either be Town or Mafia aligned. LIST Cop ~ You can inspect another player to learn their alignment. Doctor ~ You can protect other players from kills. Each protection stops one kill, and lasts for one night. Roleblocker ~You can block another player's action each night. You are immune to roleblocks. Jack of All Trades ~ You have four one-shot abilities: kill, inspect, protect, and roleblock. You can only use one ability each night. Actions: kill (1 use) inspect (1 use) protect (1 use) block (1 use) Tracker ~ You can track another player. You will be told who that player targeted, if any. Nurse ~ When the doctor dies, you become a Doctor. Retired Cop ~ When the cop dies, you become a Cop. Bodyguard ~ You can guard another player. If that player would be killed, you and the attacker will kill each other instead. Inventor ~ You can give another player a random 1-shot ability. Watcher ~ You can watch another player. You will be told if that player used an ability. Paranoid Gun Owner ~ If you are the target of an action, you will kill the player who targeted you. Voteblocker ~ You can block a player from voting the next day. Jailkeeper ~ You may roleblock and protect one player from death during the Night. Hider ~ You may hide behind someone else during the Night. This makes you immune to targeting. If you hide behind Scum you die. If the person you're hiding behind is targeted, that ability/kill will affect you as well. One-Shot Role Cop ~ You can inspect people to find out their rolenames. Your ability can be used during night or day, but only once. If you want to save your ability for later, send a 'none' action at night. Hexer ~ The Hexer may hex one player with a specific word, and PMs the host the name of one player each Day. The host will PM the target and tell that person he or she must use that specific word once in each post during that specific Day. If the target fails to do so three times during that Day, he or she dies. Also, the target revealing information that he or she's been hexed, or that a Hexer exists, results in instant death. Chicken-Loving Hippie ~ The Chicken-Loving Hippie will target 2 or 3 players each Night, and toss a drumstick at them from the shadows. This has no effect, besides thwarting hunger. *This list will grow over time.
