Guide to Cleric Role

Role Information

The Cleric, adorned with the symbol of protection, is a Town Protective role with no attack or defense immunities. Their power lies in the ability to cast a protective barrier on a player each night, fortifying them with a Powerful Defense and curing them of any Poison. On top of that, should danger come too close, the Cleric has the capability to protect themselves by casting a barrier at home, although this power can only be exercised once. One of the defining attributes of this role is the ability to know if their chosen target was attacked during the night. The Cleric’s mission, akin to other town roles, is to ensure justice by eliminating every criminal and evildoer from the town.

Strategy Guide for Playing as Cleric

Understanding the Cleric Role

As a Cleric, your primary duty lies in protecting your fellow townsfolk by casting a barrier each night. This powerful defense not only grants the target protection against direct attacks but also cures Poison. You have the knowledge if your target was attacked, and they will also learn that someone has protected them. Remember, you are only allowed to cast a barrier on yourself once throughout the game.

Selecting Your Target

The choice of who to protect each night should not be random. Consider the players’ behavior during the day, their role claims, and even their voting patterns. Also, factor in the information shared by other town roles to make an informed decision on who to protect.

Understanding the Limitations

While your role provides a robust protective measure, it does not make your target invincible. Your barrier cannot guard against indirect or passive attacks. Moreover, remember that you can only cast a barrier on yourself once per game.

Communicating with the Town

While your role primarily revolves around protection, don’t underestimate the power of communication. Share pertinent information with the town, such as if a player you protected was attacked. However, you should also try to remain under the radar to avoid becoming a target yourself.

Protecting Yourself

As a key protective role, you might become a target for evil roles. If you’re suspected, you might want to cast a barrier on yourself. Alternatively, coordinate with other protective roles to ensure that the town’s defense is solid and robust.

Cleric’s Game Log Template

Keeping a log of your actions each night and their outcomes can prove extremely beneficial. Here is a simple game log template you can use:

  • D1: Observations:
  • N1: Protection Target:
  • D2: Observations: / Protection Target (if changed):
  • N2: Protection Target: / Result:
  • D3: Observations: / Protection Target (if changed):
  • N3: Protection Target: / Result:

Continue this pattern for each subsequent day and night. Make sure to update your observations with crucial information from other players, voting patterns, and other notable occurrences.

Strategies for Posing as a Cleric

Understanding the Role

To convincingly pose as a Cleric, you need to comprehend the mechanics of the role. Know when and how to claim that you’ve protected someone and when to share that they’ve been attacked.

Creating a Believable Story

Create believable results for your protections. Make sure they align with the events unfolding in the game.

Adapting to Game Events

Adjust your claims based on the game’s events. If a player you claimed to protect is attacked or dies, have a back-up plan or a plausible explanation to cover it up.

Maintaining Consistency

Ensure your claims remain consistent throughout the game. If your protection claims contradict known facts or other players’ statements, your cover may be blown.

Keep these strategies in mind and you’ll be well on your way to successfully impersonating a Cleric.
