Role Thief

Role Description:

The Role Thief may each night target a player and simultaneously block and steal their night action, if they have any. On future nights, the Role Thief may choose between using a previously stolen night action or attempting to steal a new night action.


The steal will only work if the target is blocked successfully. A normal Role Thief will only block the target, but an improved Role Thief variant is able to also permanently strip the target of their power (usually called a Burglar). It varies whether the Role Thief gains 1-time or unlimited usage of a stolen power. Some hosts will allow a Role Thief to both steal and also use a stolen power on any given night.
