Why zombies don't have chat at night? They should have chat.

The bit person doesn't know, doctors can protect someone from being bit but not cure them after that, shrinks can't stop it at all, and the zombies know who each other are but can't chat unlike other third-parties.

Also, a way to balance the zombie might be to only infect players if the player was also targeted by a killing role the same night.

I don't know if this was a glitch with the role or not, but on the last night of the game the last zombie visited a lm, but the lm did not out that they were visited by the zombified person. An this occurred earlier as well, but I'm assuming that it was the doc visit the prevented the person from being infected: https://epicmafia.com/game/3519059

That is how the role was originally meant to be played. Thank you for letting me know I will update the description for the role. The reason the Zombie dies when trying to hit cult is to balance it out. That way the Mason-Cult-Zombie relationship works much like a Rock, Paper, Scissors.

That was suppose to be the downside to the Zombies is that when they tried to zombify a cult they are suppose to all die. I thought that Lucid didn't implement that feature though so that is odd. I would contact Lucid about that or post it on the forums if that glitch showed up.

This should be modified so have an effect similar to the loudmouth. If the zombie is in a setup and visits someone at night, the next day there should be a message: Someone shouted out in the night "I've Been Bit!" that way the town can be aware of the zombies from the first day if in a closed role setup and would know if they cleared them all out. I think that would balance it a bit.

This role here is so underpowered.

That was one of the original ideas, but the programming for it would be a nightmare Lucid said.

Lucid you need to fix this role. Zombies are suppose to show up on investigation reports and both Quacks and Docs (Maybe even Nurses) are suppose to cure the infection and kill Zombies.

Okay, here's the thing. Trackers and watchers apparently doesnt notice zombies. In one game I played doctors docced the same guy as the zombies infected, but he still became infected. Zombies are buggy and OP </3

I got zombied, and when I died it said I was the cop with no tailor in the game.

I don't understand when people complain about a role not working well with other roles! Protip: Don't put the roles together in a setup. My Night of the Living Dead setup works quite well for the Zombie role!

Reason # 8,457 to remove zombie/neg zombie/Zombie is OP.

They can infect grannies without being Grannykilled.
