Protector

Role Description:

The Protector may each night target someone and protect their night action, if they have any, from being roleblocked or moved to another target.

Notes:

This role can be very powerful for both town and mafia, which is why it's often restricted to being a 1-shot or 2-shot ability. Town can use it to ensure that an outed Cop is able to investigate another player, whereas mafia can use it in much the same way as a Strongman role modifier. The Protector is rarely allowed to target the same player on consecutive nights. A nerfed Protector might only be able to protect against either roleblocks or redirects specifically. Note that the Protector's action will not override a protection or someone commuting/hiding (if the ability is used on a kill ability).

Role of the Day
Parity Cop

The Parity Cop may investigate a player at night and learn whether that player shares the same alignment as any previous checks. The Parity Cop won't receive a result for their first check, since there wouldn't yet be any previous checks to compare to.
