Ability Thief

Role Description:

The Ability Thief can each night steal a night action from a randomly selected player. The Ability Thief will then be able to use this ability the next night. The Ability Thief will not know who they gained a night action from.


The Ability Thief is informed of their gained ability at the beginning of the next day. It varies whether or not the Ability Thief's copying action can be roleblocked (since it can be considered passive), so hosts should make sure to specify this to the player in their role description. It also varies whether or not the Ability Thief is allowed to gain/copy a new night action each night and at the same time use a gained action.
