Tree Stump

Role Description:

The Tree Stump will, upon death, no longer be allowed to cast any votes or use any abilities they might have had, but may still continue to post. They count as a dead player for parity purposes.


The Tree Stump is often used as a modifier, i.e. as an added ability to a role that already has one or more abilities (such as a Tree Stump Cop, for example). A mafia-aligned Tree Stump will usually retain their ability to communicate privately with their teammates. Sometimes, the Tree Stump may be able to turn into a Tree Stump by choice at any time they wish, making the ability an active one rather than a passive one. This variant usually performs this action by publicly posting it in the game thread. A popular variant of this role is a Tree Stump that can choose to turn themselves into a Tree Stump at night (nonreversible), and if this variant is ever targeted to be killed before performing this action, they will die and not live on as Tree Stump.
