Role Description:

The Decoy may each night target a player to perform a "fake" night action that does nothing except register to any Trackers/Watchers or similar roles.


This role can be of any alignment and is usually included to throw off Trackers/Watchers or similar roles from the opposite alignment, though it might often also throw off players from the same alignment. If the game has a Follower or a Voyeur, you should make sure to define before the game what type of action the Decoy's action will be categorized as. A similar role to the Decoy is the Fruit Vendor. Decoys often have a Compulsive modifier, meaning that they are forced to use their action each night.
