Class Summary

 Converted Class: Immune to Convert

The Pretender is a Special class that belongs to a Neutral faction with the objective to become the Pretender King and survive.

The Pretender must first be elected as The King, and then survive for the remainder of the game to win.

The Pretender can't be converted, like other Neutral classes.

Note: Other Neutral factions won't necessarily assist you, as their objectives are their own.

Mechanics

  • There are currently no special mechanics listed for this class.

Strategy

  • Since the Pretender can use Blood Test to check for Royal Blood and gain information similar to how a Princess can, Princess is a common pretender claim.
  • It is usually better to step up for King late game, due to the Pretender's one and only Guard?.
