Role Description:

The Usurper is a mafia-aligned role that wins by outliving its team's Godfather. However, the Usurper must also simultaneously achieve the standard mafia win condition.


I.e. even if the mafia wins, the Usurper will lose if they did not outlive the mafia Godfather. The Usurper's win condition is usually redacted from the information given to the mafia team about its roles and powers, though they can choose to reveal this part of their win condition to their teammates if they so wish, given that they still must cooperate in order to achieve the standard mafia win condition. Hosts may also choose to make the Usurper's "bus target" someone other than the Godfather. Some other variations of this role include a Usurper that will inherit the Godfather's abilities or a Usurper that wins as long as the mafia wins and the Godfather dies before the end of the game, regardless of whether the Usurper outlived them or not.
