maf uses this as a strat as long as auto is alive town won't focus on the mafia because if they do and all maf is dead auto wins.

good role tbh, it's funny to see town loose when they think they've won

Autocrat is broken. When the Autocrat dies they can still win.

There is literally no point in mafia/antag roles killing the autocrat anyway.

For starters autocrat win is a village lose.

Autocrat death is a partial village win.

Mafia/otherwise have nothing to gain by killing the autocrat if they know who they are because autocrats don't really count for anything.

The Autocrat should ether hide everyone's name or vote, similar to the Mastermind and mafia meetings.

Village wins = Autocrat wins = Village doesn't win.
Nice logic.

Whoever says Autocrat is impossible to win with, this is the overpowered part of it.

This is the worst role ever.

But besides that specific question, I think this role needs to be upgraded. It's nearly impossible to win as. Here's why:

1) Town is told that you are in the game, right from the start. You can't sneak up on them and they are looking for you.

2) No abilities at all to protect yourself. 'Crat should at least have a vest or something. Maybe bodyguard should have a win condition of "protecting the autocrat" so that, if he's in the game, there is incentive to help the 'crat win (something like secret service).

3) Can't really fake claim as there is nothing he can do that is "provable". You can pretty much only claim "blue" or "vivor" but neither of those are very safe. Even fool can fake-visit someone so that it shows up on a tracker/watcher report at least.

Would mafia want to keep an autocrat alive? I was 'crat in a sandbox game and got to a 7 player LyLo with 3 maf, 3 town, and me. I thought about claiming to "joint" with the maf but then realized I couldn't joint - I needed town to win. Since it was LyLo, town couldn't have lynched me even if I claimed (or else they'd lose to mafia) but I was worried maf would try to kill me since I would be unlynchable (as non-maf) so I stayed quiet; and then they hit me at night anyways. Should I have claimed? Would mafia leave an autocrat alive to ensure town doesn't win even if they catch all the maf? Or would maf shoot a 'crat to keep pool of suspects open?

Really I think the autocrat should have a gov-like ability.

Lucidrains just stated he will implement this role. Good work SerahFarron. Still can't believe he hasn't created my Communist role though T_T. Lucidrains if you read this, would you be so kind to state the changes I would have to make to the role so you may start to like it enough for Implementation? thx

@sunslicer2 It's supposed to be like mastermind (if it worked properly) with town instead of mafia.
