More testing: Bomb kills Arsonist if they're doused when the fire is lit. It only kills the Arsonist who lit the match, not the one who did the dousing.

It should be third, more than mafia, because mafia can just contact him and he wont set them on fire. Also its better if he sets people on fire , during day, not night :D, so he can set them, if he is getting lynched.

Example: Two Arsonists douse a Bulletproof N1, and one of them lights their match immediately. The bulletproof's vest is popped, and one layer of dousing is removed; the second Arsonist can then light *their* match to ignite the second layer of dousing.

https://epicmafia.com/game/2900085 More testing: Being doused will mean you have a kill attempt made against you if *any* Arsonist lights their match, not just the one who doused you. If an Amnesiac takes Arsonist, the previously doused targets will remain doused. Additionally, a target may be doused twice (by the same or by different Arsonists); in this instance, each match-lighting removes one layer of dousing and makes one kill attempt against the target.

it also doesnt burn at all. at least not in a game i played.

Mechanics testing: The doused person is not notified - when the match is thrown (i.e people get torched), the message is as follows: "Someone threw a match into the crowd! / X suddenly lights on fire and burns to a crisp!" and so on. The fire itself happens as a standard kill attempt; anything that stops a (day) gun will stop an Arsonist's fire. Yes, this means trees are immune to fire. Don't question it. -- Also, the Arsonist doesn't visit. It has a night action (like Watcher, Oracle or Anarchist) but can't be caught by Trackers or Watchers or Grannies, et cetera.

i know in forum mafia i used to play, the arsonist's dousing wasnt notified, but you were notified if a doctor saved you from the gasoline somehow?
almost 10 years
I think it would be good if they were notified, actually; you'd hardly not notice being covered in flammable materials... as it stands, no-dousing n1 (and then being contacted - if they don't wait, it's an extra kill), dousing n2 and n3 and lighting n4, that's two kills plus the mafia kill, on a night that's probably mylo. Too OP unless the targets are notified, I think.

If arsoned people could be notified, then arsonist would suck because arsonist has to skip a turn to ignite the fire.

I think it should be a Third Party role.
