A crazed lunatic whose life goal is to be publicly executed.
~ The summary of the Jester.

The Jester is part of the ensemble of characters from the mystery RPG game Town of Salem.


Official Backstory

A scarring past is how the jester became to be, born in the town of Salem. Once the jester became an adult, the jester was sent away from being conscripted as a soldier to fight in a bloody war. After years in the battlefield, the sight of his fellow soldiers dying, and along with the war experience had left him paranoid. The jester’s paranoia never went away and remained with him for years after when he was sent back to his hometown, Salem. Everyday, the jester experienced his traumatic memories of the battlefield, and twisted envisions that everyone in town is out to kill him. The memories of the traumatic experience and the fear that comes with it, makes it hard for the jester to bear to live, and would rather accept to be killed and be liberated from himself, than to live with his paranoia, making him become a target wanting to be lynched.
~ The backstory of the Jester.

Town of Salem

The Jester's goal is to get the town to believe that they are one of the evildoers and get themself executed. This can be achieved a number of ways, although the most common way is to deliberately give contradictory accounts of their movements, which is usually enough to merit a lynching. Once the Jester is executed, Jester can choose one of the guilty voters or abstainers to haunt them and make themself die. However, if the Jester is murdered at night, he will immediately lose the game.

While the Jester is one of the more docile antagonists in the game, but it can cause a lot of trouble for either side of the game, as it often causes additional confusion to the game's storyline, which often causes innocent people to be framed and killed. The jester's ability to kill someone the night after his death can also cause a major turning point in the game, even breaking stalemates.

Winning Conditions

The Jester must trick to lynch themself to win the game. If the Jester murdered in the night or survived until the ending, they will lose.

Killing Conditions

The Jester deals unstoppable attack to one of the guilty voters/abstainers. But they can't kill the Pestilence in no way.
