Ability message

When you select a target who isn't already marked, you will receive the following message:

Tonight you will check if <AvatarName> uses witchcraft or not

If you select a marked target, you will receive the following message:

Tonight you will kill <AvatarName>

In the morning, you will receive the following message:

<AvatarName> uses witchcraft


<AvatarName> does not use witchcraft

You won't get a report if you decide to kill a player.

Useful Notes

  • The marks get refreshed at the start of each night phase, so the Witch Hunter will be able to see swaps that happened the night before.
  • A swap between two marked players won't be visible to a Witch Hunter
  • If you die, your marks will not refresh anymore. The same happens if your role changes (i.e. If a Vampire recruits you, or you are purged by an Alchemist).
