Okay so after seeing a few (unknown whether or not to be isolated) comments about Marvel can be confusing and/or has too many things going on, I want to give my insight on each characters, how to be successful as said characters, and future changes on the theme itself I have lined up. Village Roles: (I think the most fun could actually be had in this team, which other themes usually divulge onto the mafia roles) Rogue: A role who distracts one person and if targeted with a kill at night, becomes a bomb and both characters will die. Professor Xavier: A role who inspects, picks up slight hax and will always start the game knowing who Ice-Man is. If he is killed, Bruce Banner unleashes and becomes the Hulk. Ice Man: Protects two characters and also can distract another character. Morph: A new type of character that I feel should not focused on killing - he can interchange between roles (selective). Dr. Strange: He can either stay as the sorcerer supreme or invoke the powers of the Vishanti Spider-Man: Night-evading samurai; village can be make/break without him. Bruce Banner: An action evading safeguarder who, if voted out, turns into the Hulk unless his Xavier conditions are met. Rogue (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler When playing as Rogue you don't really want to advertise who you are (duh) or really draw attention to yourself. You want to be as discreet as possible; since you will blow up whenever someone kills you at night it's almost imperative that you make sure it's something you'll want to have done it, such as someone like Stardust (who shouldn't be killing anyway) or the Hulk. There's nothing to technical as to being Rogue really, just try not to distract another pr! Professor Xavier (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler Xavier holds the foundation for the village, really. If he dies - he unwittingly unleashes the Hulk. He starts the game knowing Ice-Man who can BG two people, so he should really be protecting Xavier and himself if possible. Xavier gets a little hax on kills (on those that aren't hax free) so he should try to find a civilian voice as fast as possible BUT be weary, Dormammu could be right around the corner with that mindless conversion so always make sure you check twice if your voice has been tainted or not. Ice-Man (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler I've since upgraded Ice-Man after seeing he only protects himself, with a recharge! There is no other BG so I've figured this is a long-time coming. Ice Man protects two people (no recharge) and can also distract another person! I figured he'd be able to freeze someone during the night to prevent them from disrupting a command or killing, while he protect two people or himself and the professor. This still however, won't negate poison or the fact that dark phoenix could still snipe Xavier. Keep silent and try not to get revealed! Morph (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler Morph is incredibly crafty and he actually possesses the ability to transform into a role of roles - but because that is tedious time consuming and can be rather useless I wanted to get a general idea of what he could do. I have his multiple forms as the way they are so that when he's recharging from a command from say ice man, he can switch it up to go to the bastion make-shift form and deliver some power from there. I actually have not been able to be this role yet in my own game but my advice is to actually have fun with it. The roles abilities are as this: Ice Morph: protect anyone with a recharge of three nights, distract anyone with a recharge of two nights. Mind Morph: Bomb; that's it. Bastion Morph: Poison two people with a count of 4 nights for a recharge of 4 nights. As regular morph your only ability is that you evade poison. Dr. Strange (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler Another underutilized role that I see and still have not been is the sorcerer supreme! He has the ability to either stay as the sorcerer supreme or invoke the powers of the Vishanti. This role was designed to counter Team Shuma-Gorath (in the comics they are all rivals of one another) but I need to work on him some more, personally. If you stay as the sorcerer supreme, you avoid all night-kills while also having Invoking the powers of the Vishanti, you can protect someone and you counter-daykills. (Technically you can shell out and protect yourself and then counter someone's daykill. Invoking the power of the Octessence, You can poison people with a count of two days (recharge of two days) and you can safeguard someone as well. Personally I would suggest staying as the sorcerer supreme and wait until the game changes for you to change forms. If Ice-Man dies you might need to protect someone (or yourself) but if you feel like you need to eliminate the mafia and protect people from poison Octessence is the way to go. Spider-Man (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler Okay this is really a no-brainer and needs no explaining. DON'T REVEAL unless stardust is dead, shuma is dead, and you have the voting power. Honestly, don't just kill and expect to win, unless it's a small-game and you know Stardust (and shuma isn't around), otherwise, you're going to get slaughter'd the next day (or even that voting phase). Bruce Banner (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler You evade 80% of practically anything that could hurt you; and you ignore poison. Don't connect to village b/c if you get voted out or Xavier dies - you turn into the incredible Hulk. That doesn't mean you should be a jerk though, if you see Spider-Man reveal- be a nice guy and give him some safeguards. Conspirator: Just a typical role; however, if desired, am willing to alter this role drastically.. Wraith: Just a killer who wins with other sides. Wraith (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler Don't reveal, mafia thinks it's funny to kill the conspirator, seriously. If you guys have any suggestions on what this role should turn into let me know, I was thinking of giving him a N6 powerup but, dunno! The Hulk: Good god, this guy is a monster. Hulk: Two Night kills, evade poison, evade kills, counter day kills. What's that? He can be voted out? Good, thought he was unstoppable. Hulk (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler Did you play well as Banner? Does no one know your role? Good. No one's on your team so go nuts, kill everyone. Just try not to get exposed because you have no voting power. Team Herald: This side was meant to focus on the killing and is a counter for spider-man if he reveals too early. Stardust: Shared Nightkiller with a revealing day-kill Silver Surfer: Shared nightkiller that inspects' as citizen Galactus: Shared nightkill that ignores distractions Stardust (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler Let Galactus kill, and if you see Spider-Man reveal, kill him if the situation calls for it because otherwise your team is free to him. Badly. Silver Surfer (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler Go ahead, claim citizen. Don't troll too hard but if you can gain Xavier's trust.... Galactus (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler Just kill every night and if your partner's think you're wrong for doing so step on them reason with them that you don't get distracted. I've considered giving him a power-boost but I have not seen a collection of data to persuade me otherwise. Team Shuma: Just shuma again. Shuma-Gorath (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler He kills at night without the fear of hax and he kills during the day. This slimy boss literally has tried to take over earth almost the entire life-span of Earth canonically. So this dude is meant to be the overpowered beast that it is; so much so that his power made Dr. Strange kill himself. Again - he's a go nuts kind of guy, have no fear, because hax is not here! Dark Phoenix: From my prior writing, I have since updated Dark Phoenix and have given her a priority one kill, a regular kill, and a one-time only poison. She also has a voteshield of -100000, meaning deadpool can't just rand her out; he needs at least 2 people to. :p this makes her a legitimate threat, though I fear she has gone over the boat! Dark Phoenix (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler She's pretty godlike. Exceed BG kills, regular kill, and a one-time only poison. Spread mass destruction! Bastion: He can poison four characters, and carries -5 votes, however he has a recharge on the poison Bastion (creator insight and how to be effective) Spoiler I've eliminated his team because their success was mild and I wanted to breathe some new innovation into it.. However that's another story. - Bastion can poison people religiously. Try and scope out PRs (ie people not talking) and use your negative votes if you'd like to keep yourself or other enemies safe! Your -5 votes is pretty strong Doom and his League of Doom Bots. Dr. Doom and his Bots: Spoiler So I figured that there should be a team that competes with the Heralds - and the village without being too powerful... What follows is an example of how I've tried to accomplish both! Spoiler Dr. Doom - you have a simple day-kill, and nothing else. You are the sole breath of air into this team; and should you die everyone else does, save for one! Doombot(1) - You have a command that both inspects and distracts a target - essentially you will be providing info to Doo. Doombot(2) - You have a command that both tries to kill OR poison a target - this is a secondary option to removing threats Doombot(3) - You have a command that will protect and safeguard doom - this is vital! Doombot(4) - You don't have any commands but if Doom dies you are the only one that stays alive and you convert into Doom! How to be successful on Doom's team! Spoiler Listen to Doom; he is your master. Doom - kill anyone (but team obviously), Doombot 3 always stay on Doom, Doombot 2 and Doombot 1 just coordinate with one another. Doombot4...try to stay hidden! Team Stan Lee Spoiler Well you all asked for him... It's Stan Lee! He doesn't do anything till Night 3, upon that night you can convert anyone into a random role (Magneto Vulcan X-Man or Mister M. If they die, you turn into TOAA. How to be Successful on Stan Lee's team Spoiler Stan Lee: Try not to get voted off and convert someone that's NOT spider-man or maybe someone who claimed villy - seriously, that might help you. Any of the roles: Protect stan (when you can) and/or yourself. If you die (not a bad thing) you convert Stan into the TOAA TOAA: Wreck havoc on the Marvel Universe; kill during the day etc;. Taunt if you can! Deadpool: He's OFF-the wall! He breaks the 4th wall - seriously. 9999 votes and an unrevealed expose in the day. Deadpool (creator insight and how to be utilized) Spoiler troll, troll, and troll harder. OK, I lied, because who wants to get banned?! Just expose anyone you want during the day and don't vote unless necessary. You can make the game change quickly if utilized to the fullest extent! If anyone has any further questions on this theme, why some roles are here (or omitted), and any comments or concerns just let me know!
