A protection is a type of night action or role ability that prevents negative effects from happening to the protection's target. The most common form of protection is protection from nightkills that Doctors provide.
There are several types of protections that are handled by many different roles.
Types of Protection
- Kill Protection: The protected player cannot be killed by nightkills, Vigilante deaths, or other type of kill. Doctors, Bulletproof players, Bodyguards, Firefighters, and Jailors are all examples of roles that protect against kills.
- Execution Protection: The protected player cannot be executed by the town. Lynchproof players and Governors are examples of roles that protect against executions.
- Roleblock Protection: The targeted player cannot be roleblocked. Empowerers are examples of a role that protects against roleblocks.
