  • [role]-Finder
Alignment: any
Role type:
  • Investigative
  • Night
Status: Complex Normal

A [role]-Finder, or Finder, is a investigative role that learns whether someone is a specific power role or not. For example, a Cop-Finder has results of "Cop" and "Not Cop". Modifiers and other parts of roles are not considered, so a Cop-Finder will get results of "Cop" on a Cop, a 1-shot Cop, a Macho Cop, or a Fruit Vendor Cop.

Normal version

This role is allowed in Complex Normal games.

A [role]-Finder is a modular role. A [role]-Finder needs the name of a Normal power role put in where [role] is. For example, Cop-Finder, Fruit Vendor-Finder, and Mason-Finder are possible iterations of the [role]-Finder role. A [role]-Finder is not considered to have [role] as their base role.

A [role]-Finder will get a positive result if their target is the role they are finding, including modified roles and multiroles. A positive result will still be returned on a depleted X-shot role or an inactive Backup role.


A modifier can be put in where [role] is, allowing something like a Loyal-Finder to check if someone has the Loyal modifier or not or a 1-shot-Finder to check if someone is a 1-shot role or not.

Sample Role PMs

The standardized Role PM for "Finder" describes the action as follows:

  • As a targeted action: you will learn whether that player has the role "sample". (edit)


Welcome to game! You are a Town Jailkeeper Finder.

You have the following active ability:

  • Each Night, you may target a player. Assuming no interference with your action, you will learn whether that player has the role "Jailkeeper".

You win if all threats to the town are eliminated and at least one town-aligned player is alive.

Confirm by replying to this PM with a summary of your role.
