Lightning Rod

Role Description:

The Lightning Rod may each night target a player, causing any night actions directed at that target to be redirected to the Lightning Rod.

Notes:

An alternate version is a Lightning Rod that passively redirects every single night action in the game to itself. It varies whether this version is passively forced to use its ability each night or whether it can choose. A mafia Lightning Rod should always be able to choose. If a Lightning Rod is included in a setup, be mindful of whether you want to include protective roles as well, since this would render the game nightless.
