Athlete. The Athlete has a remarkable facility to recover from injury. If at any time the Athlete becomes Wounded, the Athlete may change his state from Wounded to Asleep.
Gangster. The Gangster is a notorious break-in artist. The Gangster, if not Dormant, may ignore any prohibition on entering a particular Room that would otherwise be applicable as a result of a Crisis or the exercise of another Role’s special power by operation of the “Functions of Roles” subrule.
Jeweler. The Jeweler has an eye for small detail. If the Jeweler is in a room in which a Dark Action occurred within the past 24 hours, then there is a 50% chance that the Executor will provide information to the Jeweler specifying the Dark Action that occurred in that room and the Guest who took the action; in that case, there is a 50% chance that the information provided by the Executor will be accurate and a 50% chance that the information will be false (with the Executor determining the outcomes of these percentages in whatever manner the Executor deems suitable).
Professor. The Professor has made a career out of formulating and testing hypotheses. As a weekly action, the Professor may contact the Executor by telegram, stating that he is theorizing, such telegram shall contain exactly one declarative statement with respect to no more than one Guest (such as “Guest X hast the lowest absolute relation to Lord Cartlesham”, or “Guest X performed the attack that wounded a guest in the Library last night”) to which the Executor shall privately reply by repeating the declarative statement and including either the word “TRUE” or “FALSE”. Such TRUE or FALSE reply by the Executor shall be an accurate characterization of the truth or falsity of the statement 66% of the time (with the Executor determining the outcome of this percentage in whatever manner the Executor deems suitable).
Curator. The curator is a careful observer of his surroundings. If the Curator is in a particular room when the lights were switched from on to off, and is in that same room the next time the lights are switched from off to on, the Executor shall privately notify the Curator whether any Dark Actions took place in that room while the lights were off (whether or not any Noise was heard). The Executor shall, with respect to any such Dark Action, also provide information to the Curator as to the identity of the Guest whom the Curator suspects of having taken that Dark Action; in that case, there is a 50% chance that the information provided by the Executor will be accurate and a 50% chance that the information will be false.
Inventor. The Inventor is a genius capable of constructing useful items. As a weekly action, the Inventor may contact the Executor by private telegram, stating that he is inventing, and stating with as much specificity as possible the attributes of the invention that he wishes to create. Following the receipt of that private telegram, the Executor shall determine whether or not the attempt to invent was successful (with success occurring on 50% of invention attempts, and the Executor determining the outcome of this percentage in whatever manner the Executor deems suitable. If the Executor determines that the invention attempt was successful, the Executor shall post a blog post specifying the gamestate effects of the existence of the invention and, if applicable, the rooms and/or Guests (or the manner of determining the rooms and or Guests) experience such gamestate effects; such gamestate effects shall be determined by the Executor in his sole and absolute discretion, with the Executor being encouraged to refer to the Inventor’s telegram for guidance. No Invention may change or alter the effect of any Core Rule.
Housewife. The Housewife has a voracious appetite for gossip. Once every 48 hours, the Housewife may contact the Executor by private telegram, stating that she is gossiping. Folowing the receipt of that private telegram, the Executor must privately truthfully reply to the Housewife, naming two Guests specified by the Executor in the Executor’s discretion and stating which of them has the lower degree of relation to Lord Cartlesham.
Chauffeur. The Chauffeur’s job is personal transportation. As a daily action, and whether or not the lights are on, if the Chauffeur is in “Room A” and is not prohibited from voluntarily moving to “Room B”, the Chauffeur may move from Room A to Room B and may simultaneously change the location of exactly one other Guest who is in Room A to Room B (even if that other Guest is Dormant or is otherwise prohibited from moving to Room B).
Musician. The Musician has uncommonly keen hearing. If the Musician is in a particular Room and a Dark Action occurs in or with respect to that Room that may make a noise, then the Musician hears that noise; additionally, in that event, the Executor shall provide information to the Musician as to what Guest the Musician suspects of having taken the Dark Action that made that noise; this information is accurate 50% of the time (with the Executor determining the outcome of this percentage in whatever manner the Executor deems suitable).
Spiritualist. The Spiritualist has the astonishing facility to speak with the dead. If the Spiritualist is in a room with a dead Guest and the lights are out, the Spiritualist may, once every 96 hours, notify the Executor that the Spiritualist is conducting a seance, whereupon: (1) the Executor shall privately notify the dead Guest that the Spiritualist is trying to contact him from beyond the veil, and requesting that the dead Guest deliver a message to notify the Executor what information, if any, the dead Guest chooses to deliver to the Spiritualist. The Executor may, in his discretion, provide to the dead Guest true or false information regarding the circumstances of the dead Guest’s death, which the dead Guest may incorporate or omit from the dead Guest’s reply to the Spiritualist, as he chooses, (2) the Executor shall, promptly after receiving from the dead Guest’s message to the Spiritualist, privately communicate the same to the Spiritualist.
Part 3: If more than half of the EVCs on this Proposal contain the phrase “Reinvent the inventor”, then delete the “Inventor” paragraph from Part 2.
This still leaves Diplomat, Secretary, Architect, Stonemason, Mechanic, Novelist and Bodyguard as not having defined powers, but I believe it covers the balance of the Roles that are actually held by Guests as of the time this Proposal is made.
Also, I am not going to try to pack it into this proposal, but this may be a good time to consider a mechanic analogous to this one from the prior Werewolf dynasty.
