I definitely like the addition of the new werewolf roles, though. Those add some variety to the proceedings, for sure.
Hehe, yeap. They make it a lot more complex. Think you can trust people but you can't really trust them. Same with Cupid.
I kinda think the best strategy for soulmates is to forget they are soulmates and just try to steer the voting away from each other until the later rounds.
It's certainly not a bad strategy, but it makes the role kind of useless.
They're not proven until and unless one dies.
Really now? What would happen if two people would be claiming soulmates?
A) They really are the soulmates.
B) They're on the peasants side, but not the soulmates. That's basically just stupid play, as you're just adding to the confusion. (Remember, all the werewolves know their allies, so any additional confusion is just a hindrance to the peasants.
C) They're two werewolves trying to get in the clear. Now if this would happen, the real soulmates could come out, and call their bluff. There's a chance that one soulmate gets lynched first as the villagers just guess wrong, but two werewolves will die just to take out the soulmates. That's a great deal.
So, basically, when two people claim to be the soulmates, there's a very good chance that they actually are.
