Class Summary

 Converted Class: Immune to Convert

The King is a Guaranteed Unique Special class that belongs to a Random faction with the objective of that faction.

He cannot be investigated and will not appear to Unseen or Cult members as a member of their faction, even if he is. He may not be attacked by Blue Dragon Killer classes, or The Alchemist.

The initial King will be assigned to Blue Dragon (65% chance of appearing) or Cult/Unseen (35% chance of either appearing, only if faction is present). The Cult King can only appear in Classic games.

If the King is Neutral (by being crowned from a Neutral class that is not a Neutral Killer), he either only has to Survive the game if he is a Neutral King, or kill everyone that does not need to survive as an objective if they are a Psycho King. If the King is assigned to the Blue Dragon, Cult or Unseen faction, he must eliminate the opposing factions. The Neutral and Psycho Kings can't be assigned as the starting King.

If the King didn't survive the night, a self-nomination process is started to find the replacement. Royal classes will initially be able to step forward to replace the King. If only one Royal steps forward, that Royal becomes the King. If two Royals step forward, a ballot to choose the next King from the two candidates will be opened. If there is no Royal who steps forward, every class can step forward to become the next King. Then the candidates will have the time to talk and try to get the votes needed to become the new King. If there is no candidate after two consecutive rounds of self-nomination, a vacuum of power occurs, where there will be no king for the rest of the game.

NoteYou cannot start the game with a Mercenary contracted to protect you.

The King can summon a guard to protect a player. The guard will sacrifice himself for that player if an attempt is made on his life. Whether the guard actually saves the player or not, the guard is spent.

If you are The Psycho King, this ability functions differently. You target a player to send a guard to kill them. Additionally, The Psycho King has unlimited uses of Guards.

Note: The Starting King has 6 Guards instead of 4.

Order Execution Night 2 Send a guard to attack a player. The attack bypasses night immunity, and it's use is announced to the court the next day. It will only be announced if the attack was successful.

Note: Only the Starting King has this ability.

Mechanics

  • The starting King is always player number 1.

Strategy

  • Your night abilities do not count as visits, and can't be seen by Observers or Princesses.
  • Be sure to keep up with the leads people give you and do something with the information people give you, otherwise you will be dubbed a Useless/Evil King and the Butlers will poison you!
  • Decide Fate can be used early in the game when you are an Evil King. If someone claims Prince or another powerful Blue Dragon class while on trial, it can be a very good idea to decide their fate. Even if it means your death, it will benefit your faction greatly.
  • If you are Evil King, try to let the unseen you are their ally, by exemple, by fakeclaiming distracted, or not claiming your were distracted when the assassin distracted. Although if the assassin poison someone during the same day, it will out you are Evil King
  • If you are the Neutral King, it's generally better to not claim Neutral as people can get very itchy about your faction and will vote you up instantly for it. Act like a Good King instead.
  • If you are Neutral King, it might be an idea to eliminate The Butlers as they can poison you, get an Alchemist on your side, to protect you from the Butler's Night shaded wine.
  • The Royal Finger is a useful ability for showing allies exactly who to vote for, or splitting votes or misdirecting the Blue Dragon if you are an Evil King.
  • You cannot use both The Royal Finger and Decide Fate on the same day.
  • Order Execution can be prevented by a Physician or Alchemist Heal or by Role that prevent visit such as The Fool who would hide from your execution or the Mercenary would guard their contract.
  • If you annonce your are going to use Order Execution, or if it is obvious that you are going to use it, you will be vulnerable during, consider asking for the protection of The Knight or healers to heal you.

Lore: The Good King (Blue Dragon)

King-Icon

The Good King struggles with power - learning his followers are not all who they claim to be, and his devoted ones seemingly lacking devotion. When the king falls, who shall rise? He worries not about himself, but the kingdom: if he were no longer to be the keeper of balance. This chosen one struggles if he should take action, or silently wait for the ideal moment to avenge his royal family.

Lore: The Unseen Path of Corruption

The Royal blood that flows through this man that challenges the throne is that of

BadKing-512

the Unseen faction. His heart is as black as the dungeon chambers that stretch far beneath the kingdom. His eyes glowing of deceit, as if already devouring the souls of the people he lays sight upon – for he is no king of men, but a harbinger of death and a slave-master to both loyal servants and enemies alike.

Lore: The Crown of the Cult

CultKing-512px

True to his subjects and loyal to a God. The King, as a Cultist, must shepard his wayward flock into the loving embrace of Mithras. He is not evil nor malicious but disappointed in the path his children and court have taken. With the sage wisdom of his beloved Cult Leader subtly by his side, he sets about amending the ways of his skeptical subjects.

After all, a King must look out for his people - and the only fitting future for his kingdom is to join with Mithras, lest a fate far worse befall them all. The disappointment the King endures does not mean that he is without mercy, however. His subjects are given every opportunity to join his righteous path. Only in their refusal is their life forfeit and, only then, would they serve as either blood or as body.

Lore: The Burden of the Neutral King

NeutralKing-Full-512

"What did I do to deserve this?" The cry of the Neutral King. Never did he wish for the burden of the crown nor the sweet cries of his many children. Often do we lament the passing of his wife, the former Queen, to forces outside of his control. Never does he wish for more power, for he knows that his life grows ever-shorter. His son, The Prince, in his shame, shuns him and his daughter, The Princess, who weeps for her pathetic father, never giving thought to any but himself. However, he knows they are after him - he also knows that if he were to cross either side of the line, even slightly, he would earn the blade of those who took his dear wife. “Perhaps a Mercenary will offer a reprieve," he thinks, but does not truly believe.

No, the only way out is to consolidate his own court behind their shields; for he knows that the war between his children and their enemies will one day reach its end. One side will break and the other will rise -- and the other side is what will spread across the Kingdom. For even with a kingdom and all its riches, the Neutral King wishes only for peace, either for the kingdom or himself, and it does not matter which.
