Gnosia Roles Guide

There are no small roles, only small actors

Gnosia Guide

Chances are, if you’ve landed on this Gnosia Roles Guide, you’ve been enjoying this “werewolf” game immensely but need a little more help understanding the roles. If that sounds like you, rest assured that we have you covered!

Gnosia roles are actually pretty straightforward; each loop will require all characters — you included — to take on roles while debating. These can be toggled on and off at your whim in the settings before the loop begins (except for Crew, which MUST be present), but they include the following:

  • Crew: Regular Crew members are considered human with no special abilities. They are unable to directly prove their innocence and are susceptible to Gnosia attacks. They can be proven innocent by the real Engineer in-between debates; their innocence will also be able to be proven by the real doctor if they were put into cold sleep on the day prior. A fake Engineer can claim Crew members are human or Gnosia, and a fake doctor can do the same. Crew members are unable to pose as roles that are not legitimately assigned to them.

 

  • Gnosia: Infected non-human entities posing as regular crew members. If they are able to avoid cold sleep, they can choose a human once per day and cause them to completely vanish without a trace. Gnosia have the ability to see who else is Gnosia, but cannot determine who is a Bug or AC Follower. Gnosia can be proven guilty by the real Engineer in-between debates; their guilt will also be able to be proven by the real doctor if they were put into cold sleep on the day prior. A fake Engineer can claim Gnosia are human or Gnosia, and a fake Doctor can do the same. Gnosia have the special ability to pose as either the Doctor or the Engineer but not Guard Duty.

  • Guard Duty: Guard Duty are human crew members that never left the ship prior to the game’s events, meaning they had no possible way of becoming Gnosia. They are always innocent and, when they declare their roles, are trustworthy to the Crew but targets to Gnosia attacks. Putting them into cold sleep would be a waste, as would investigating them as an Engineer or Doctor.

 

  • Engineer: The real Engineer is always human. Once per turn after each debate, the Engineer can investigate the brainwaves of one character of their choosing and determine if they are human or Gnosia. If there is a Bug, an AC Follower, and/or many Gnosia in the loop, chances are they may also pretend to be Engineer, meaning your crewmates may not take your word as truth (even though it is). A fake Engineer can claim Crew members are human or Gnosia, and a fake doctor can do the same. If there is a Bug on board, your investigation will prove fatal to them, and they will disappear overnight. This will also prove your innocence the next morning if you are in a loop with any Crew with high enough Logic to perform “definite human”. The AC Follower is human, so if you investigate someone suspicious and it comes back as not Gnosia, it does not necessarily mean they are innocent if there is an AC Follower in that loop.

  • Doctor: The real Doctor is always human. Once per turn after each debate, the Doctor will automatically investigate the last person placed in cold sleep to determine if they were human or Gnosia. A fake Engineer can claim Crew members are human or Gnosia, and a fake doctor can do the same. If there is a Bug, an AC Follower, and/or many Gnosia in the loop, chances are they may also pretend to be doctor, meaning your crewmates may not take your word as truth (even though it is). If there is a Bug on board, your examination will come back as human if they were put into cold sleep. The AC Follower is human, so if you examine someone suspicious and it comes back as not Gnosia, it does not necessarily mean they were innocent if there is an AC Follower in that loop.

 

  • Bug: Considered human, the Bug’s intention is to destroy the entire universe. To achieve this, the Bug must survive until the end of the loop, after which the universe will dissolve completely. The Bug can pose as either an Engineer or a Doctor but not as Guard Duty. When choosing someone to investigate as either the Doctor or the Engineer, the Bug can only present falsified results and will not know the real ones. The Bug cannot see who is human and who is Gnosia. The Bug can be put into cold sleep like other Crew and Gnosia, and a real Doctor’s examination will yield human results; however, if the Bug is investigated by the Engineer, it will disappear before the next round of debates.
    • NOTE: Once per loop, you can change your stats by visiting Yuriko at night (if she is present and alive). This means you can take points away from certain stats and place them in others. This is convenient if you want to unlock a recently discovered command quickly or simply want to change around your stats at your leisure.

  • AC Follower: Considered human, the AC Follower’s intention is to allow the Gnosia to win. More of an agent of chaos than anything, the AC Follower can pose as either an Engineer or a Doctor but not as Guard Duty. When choosing someone to investigate as either the Doctor or the Engineer, the AC Follower can only present falsified results and will not know the real ones. The AC Follower cannot see who is human and who is Gnosia. The AC Follower can be put into cold sleep like other Crew and Gnosia, and a real Doctor’s examination will yield human results; additionally, an Engineer’s investigation will yield human results as well. If the Gnosia do win the round and the AC Follower makes it to the end, it’s a given that the AC Follower will vanish with the remaining Crew and will not be spared for their efforts.

 

  • Guardian Angel: Considered human, the Guardian Angel’s special ability is to prevent one person from being attacked by the Gnosia every turn. They are unable to directly prove their innocence and are susceptible to Gnosia attacks themselves, as they are not allowed to chose to spare themselves from the attacks. They can be proven innocent by the real Engineer in-between debates; their innocence will also be able to be proven by the real Doctor if they were put into cold sleep on the day prior. A fake Engineer can claim Guardian Angels are human or Gnosia, and a fake doctor can do the same. Guardian Angels are unable to pose as any other roles, such as Doctor or Engineer; simultaneously, no one is able to pose as the Guardian Angel, nor is the role ever truly mentioned.

Born at a very young age; self-made thousandaire. Recommended by 4 out of 5 people that recommend things. Covered in cat hair. Probably the best sleeper in the world. Still haven't completed the civil war quest in Skyrim but I'm kind of okay with that. Too rad to be sad.
