Haven't played much with poisoner but wouldn't this be much more balanced if it didn't attend mafia meetings? It would add more strategy in the game and prevent mafia from always getting 2 kills.

Apparently poisoners can't poison BP. This needs to be changed. https://epicmafia.com/game/4144921

In games without doctors, so fair. Mafia really needs to get atleast 2 kills a night.

Nice to see that icon made it, instead of the Quack recolor.

Huh. That's like a role that a group of friends of mine made up, minus the doctor cure part.

I like it, but I think doctor should be able to save himself with a no-visit. Would lead to some fun.

I like this role a lot as well, I was talking about it with primeintellect for a brief stint. I don't think doc should be immune to the poison. I think he should be able to cure on one visit. I don't think the poisoner should be in the mafia meeting, and I definitely DEFINITELY think you should be notified. Something along the lines of "You begin to feel ill.".

Cool role would make things interesting.

It gives mafs an actual reason to NK other than erasing cleared people.

But coupled with interceptor, this would be just bad.

No, they would not be notified that they are poisoned.

Would the person get a message saying "you have been poisoned!" or some equivalent? It sounds interesting, a bit like what the witch should have been. The name is a bit awkward, but +k for the concept.

A little bit overpowered with little repercussions to the poisoner. Doctors shouldn't be able to be poisoned. A good balancing mechanic would be the doctors discover the role of the poisoner if the poison is cured.

Or Pharmacist.

Oh, instead of 'poisoner', something like 'Insane Doctor" would be a better name

The poisoner should not participate in mafia meetings and be able to poison the mafia (like the silencer). This means the doctor isn't obliged to help the poisoned claim if they seem scummy, and also gives the mafia a reason to leave the doctor alive. Also if the doctor intercepts the poisoner he should discover his identity (as in visits on the same night).

The poisoner is just like a gunsmith or blacksmith, only he gives out arsenic :p

Can be used to create an interesting situation if the doctor is having to choose between a poisoned and a clear power role. I really like it.

Hmm, pointless, make it so that the Doc can't take away the Poison unless he protects the person both nights, IMO.

It's pretty much a delayed second kill while giving the doctor two chances to save! It's a great role idea :)

Yeah, if doctor gets poisoned (like if they are killed) they cannot be saved unless there if another doc on them. And there would be lots of fun with the interceptor. Also the driver.
