Portraitcard neutral fool

Objective: Convince others that YOU are guilty of treason; get yourself executed.

Class Summary

Converted Class: Immune to Convert

The Fool is a "Social" class that belongs to a Neutral faction with the objective to get executed for Treason. The Fool is full of tricks and trolls, and the only one that matters to him is himself.

He is generally considered one of the hardest classes to play, as he requires a lot of effort to convince the entire court to execute you, or at least enough members for it to pass.

NoteOther Neutral players won't necessarily assist you, as their objectives are their own, additionally, you cannot start the game with a Mercenary contracted to protect you but they can, if their first contract dies, pick you as their new contract.

Fool - Hide
2 No-one will be able to visit you on the night you hide.
Make yourself appear as suspicious to Investigative results.



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.
  • The Fool can evade death at night by using Hide (2 charges).
  • 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". You could also make The King say "execute him" or "no wait, execute him" if you are about to get pardoned. His Majesty's words carry a lot of weight.


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 role 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 Alchemist (no logs) and The Observer (The Mastermind's favourite claim, your logs should only include Peeks and no follows).
    • The Hunter is also a good role 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.

  • People trying to visit you when you use Hide will see the following message: "Something prevented you from visiting player X".

Lore: Where is my Color? A Fool's Story

The Fool Old

"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......."
