Private Investigator

Role Description:

The Private Investigator may each night investigate a player to learn whether or not they are cult-aligned.


The Private Investigator is a different, distinctive role that may exist in addition to a Cop role and is used for multi-faction setups featuring both a Mafia and Cult anti-town faction. In such setups a Private Investigator would be able to check for cultists, while the Cop would be able to check for mafia. An improved Private Investigator variant, which would more likely be used for larger games, is one that is able to learn whether or not their target is a member of any third party faction, usually allowing them more potential positive results if the game features multiple third party factions.
