Converted Class: Immune to Convert
Note: Other Neutral players won't necessarily assist you, as their objectives are their own.
|Poor Fellow||If the Fool is executed, then all those who voted to execute them will lose 1 charge from all limited-use abilities. In addition, there can be no trials the next day. If executed before Day 3, there can be no trials for 2 days.|
|Troll Box||Make it look like target player says something. They will not see the message.
|Hide||2||Grants death immunity by hiding from attackers.|
|Deceive||Make yourself appear framed to the Blue Dragon tonight.|
- Deceive will make you appear as Killer / Offensive to The Princess, Unseen or as The Assassin to The Sheriff and Cult to The Paladin.
- If you are reaped by The Reaper but later voted up and executed as an empty husk the next day, you will still win.
- When you are executed, if The Reaper accused you of treason they will lose a soul, and if The Mercenary accused you of treason they will lose a brilder.
The Fool has a deft arsenal of abilities to cast suspicion on himself and to defend himself.
- Using Deceive at the right time can be difficult to predict without your intervention, so it can be wise to make yourself seem suspicious during the day to lure Investigative classes, but you may get the unwanted attention of the The Prince or The Knight instead.
- If you are attacked while using Hide, you may trollbox the King with an obvious trollbox to alert your attacker that you are a Fool (e.g. "TROLLBOX: Fool was attacked last night.") If evils know you are Fool, they will probably want to have you executed during the day.
- Use your Trollbox to make another player say something incriminating while you are on stand (e.g. you could make a random player say "I'm princess, he came up as killer/offensive".
- The problem with doing this, is that its possible for the court to catch on and ask the player you Trollboxed if they were Trollboxed. This is a very dangerous strategy.
- It is better to not use your Trollbox on the King, instead you should use your Trollbox on other players. Most players will copy and paste the words of the King, outing obvious Trollboxes like "exe this" etc. on the spot.
- You don't have to go "over the top" while using your Trollbox. Using it to make you look suspicious aka "(Your number here), what are you?" could cause the court to get suspicious of you, therefore voting you up for a claim.
- One viable strategy is convincing people you are The Scorned. You can do this by trollboxing a player into making a silly accusation against someone else, and then backing up that accusation yourself while being the first to vote up the fake target. The goal is to have Blue Dragon execute you instead under suspicion of being The Scorned.
- Your Deceive makes you appear as a member of the Unseen/Cult. This means that when a Maid checks you, you will be compatible with a member of the Unseen/Cult. This is important because normally you would always be incompatible with everyone else in game. Keep this in mind if you know a Maid will check you the next night.
Your sole job is to get executed, nothing more and nothing less. This can be achieved in multiple ways:
- The Cult and Unseen would benefit from getting you executed, as it would ensure them a few nights of not being able to be voted against. They will be more than happy to vote you up.
- If you can, try to claim a class that has had two appearances in the current game (even as multiple people claiming it), this will make them not believe you and will most likely lead to your execution.
- Very suspicious go-to claims include: The Knight (bonus points if you say you've been guarding The King every night without providing logs), The Princess (your logs should include wrong information and/or information about people who are already dead), The Maid (your logs should contain impossible information such as royals being compatible with other royals) The Alchemist (no logs) and The Sheriff (The Mastermind's favourite claim, your logs should only include Expert Investigations and not have anyone listed as Unseen).
- The Hunter is also a good class to claim as Fool, just don't claim it too early as Unseen/Cult (or Prince to some extent) might target you. Hunter is also somewhat easy to write terrible fake logbooks as.
- If you believe there is an Evil King in play, if you can get yourself on stand you could claim Prince. He may use his Decide Fate ability to force execute you, scoring yourself the win. This can easily backfire, however, and the real Prince won't hesitate even a bit to execute you in jail the following night unless you can convince him that you are Blue Dragon by claiming a Hunter who was attempting to bait the King or any other occupy immune classes.
- If you're feeling particularly bold, claim Fool outright when people start voting you up. Scum resort to this occasionally, but are rarely believed, so they may think you are bluffing. For added effect, threaten everyone with a day of no executions if they follow through. It's highly recommended to wait until Prince is dead to try this though.
Lore: Where is my Color? A Fool's Story
"The sweet aroma of the night has swept across the kingdom and the throne is found empty, echoing sounds of glory with each step in this warm throne; yet the floor is so cold. I often ponder the unquestioned - why is he my king? I didn't vote for him. What makes him royalty - his robe? Where is my colour? I stare at the reflection on the polished royal tiles to see only one image: Royalty. Gahaha..... now I see it. The missing puzzle piece, laying in my shadow, taunting me this entire time. I have been king all along! The others.. they pretend I'm not. I must go. GO! This is no fools story - everyone shall see. EVERYONE!! Hehehehhh......."
