Arms Dealer

Role Description:

The Arms Dealer may each night target someone and turn them into a vigilante for the night, making the target kill whoever they use their night action on, if they have one. If the Arms Dealer targets a vigilante, the vigilante will die.


I.e. if a Cop is targeted by an Arms Dealer, the Cop will kill whoever they target for an investigation. In some implementations of this role, the Arms Dealer may cause anyone using a shot at night, even if they aren't a regular Vigilante role, to self-target and die.
