This is my idea notepad for lykos, basically. Note that this is mostly brainstorming and not always fully-formed ideas. Stuff may or may not make sense in the context of the bot, or it may also make sense only to me. Just poke me for questions.

I can't do wiki formatting, so the unedited, monospaced, properly formatted text version is over here.

New roles:

- Masons: Villagers who know each other

- Greater wolf: May eat a second person every night as long as no wolf has died

- Ancient: Needs to be attacked twice by wolves to die

- Thief: Can exchange roles with someone each night

- Feuder: Exchanges the roles of two other players each night

- Crooked judge: Can force a second vote once per game

- Lone wolf: Can kill a wolf every other night, must win alone

- Witch: Can save or kill someone once per game

- Arsonist: Can burn down a house. If someone is awake, they will escape and survive, else they have a random chance of being awoken and surviving. If wolves attack a burning house, one of them will die

Night phase names:

- Twilight: Roles that can affect other roles (e.g. shaman, hag)

- Dusk: Informational roles (e.g. seer, mystic)

- Evening: Roles that reveal information (e.g. harlot, prophet)

- Curfew: Protective roles (e.g. guardian angel, bodyguard)

- Midnight: Ambiguous roles (e.g. turncoat, clone)

- Howling: Main wolves killing

- High moon: Wolf-related actions (e.g. alpha bite, greater wolf)

- Pitch black: Other lethal roles (e.g. hunter, vigilante)

- Dawn: Standalone roles (e.g. piper, succubus)

- Morning: Game-changing roles (e.g. thief, arsonist)

Mechanic change: Village drunk as template

- Renaming Village drunk to simply Drunk

- The bartender can render people drunk

- Drunk gunner still operates as normal

- Drunk seer randomly sees a neighboor of the person they're trying to see, but it doesn't tell them

- Drunk GA randomly guards a neighboor of the person they're trying to guard, but it doesn't tell them

- Drunk killer (wolf, werecrow, hunter, etc.) has a chance to wake up the person they're targeting (and thus having them escape)

- Mystic/wolf mystic gets anywhere between n-1 and n+2 of the actual number

- FA doesn't pierce protection

- Doomsayer doesn't know what happened to whoever they saw

New mechanic: Houses

- Players are randomly assigned a house (or not) at beginning of game, which are public

- By default (currently) everyone is in a non-special house

- Some roles need the person to leave their house, in which case they're not home

- Neighboors are calculated through join order; homeless people are skipped

- Homeless people are all considered to be neighboors to each other (mad scientist becomes deadly if homeless)

- When someone dies, their house becomes vacant. The landlord can give an empty house to a homeless villager

- The owner of the church can ask whoever to come confess, revealing their role to only them

- The barber can slit someone's throat; if it's a wolf the barber survives, otherwise the village kills them instantly

- The baker automatically sees a random person outside every night (wolf, harlot, GA, thief, etc.) but can't distinguish their role

- The maid serves one of her neighboors, and so when they die she gets their role revealed to her only

- The sheriff can imprison someone every day; they can't act nor can they be attacked for the day and night. A burning sheriff office takes the life of anyone imprisoned

- The bartender can make people drunk for the remainder of the game

- The executioner is the only person who sees the roles of lynched players (if there is no alive player occupying this house, the role is publicly revealed)

- The innkeeper can host a person once per day, ???

New mechanic: Full moon (random events)

- Every day/night cycle, there's a chance of a random event occuring

- The Spectre: The next player targeted by the wolves joins wolfchat, becomes a wolf, a picks a wolf to die (during High moon phase)

- Burial: The roles of the victims of the roles are not revealed for the rest of the game

- Insomnia: Every information during Dusk phase is publicly revealed (but not who, e.g. "The seer has seen a wolf." but not who is wolf)

- Enthusiasm: If the next lynched person is a wolf or a win stealer (same restrictions as vigilante), there is a second vote phase immediately

- Miracle: The last victim of the wolves isn't really dead; they come back the next day as a villager (prevents said player from using revealroles)

- Decision: Votes may not be changed or retracted for the day

- Backlash: If wolves target a regular villager, that player becomes a wolf; otherwise, the next wolf (in join order) dies

- Discontent: If the next lynched person isn't a wolf or win stealer (same restrictions as vigilante), there is a second vote phase immediately

- Cultist: A random village-aligned player becomes cultist

- Neighborhood: Every role must act on one of their neighboors (one of any wolf's neighboor if wolves killing)

- Flood: The village is split into two equal halves; roles must act on the half they're part of (need at least 6 players), also skips vote
