Backstory

In folk magic and witchcraft, a poppet is a human-looking doll made to represent a person, for casting spells on that person or to aid that person through magic. They are usually used as a vessel for binding rituals, most commonly associated with rituals for pain or misery, where the caster stabs the poppet with a needle or sharp implement, and the person the poppet is meant to represent feals the pain.

These dolls may be fashioned from such materials as carved roots, twine, clay, branches, or cloth stuffed with herbs with the intent that any actions performed upon the effigy will be transferred to the subject based on sympathetic magic.

Poppets are also known as poppits, moppets, mommets and pippys.

Question and answers

Can a Poppet lynch a Prince?

The effect of the Poppet is a player gets lynched, but since the Prince is immune to lynching, he survives. The poppet still dies though.

Can a Poppet lynch a Werewolves team card?

No. This would also be quite counter-intuitive and considered game-throwing.

Will the Poppet's target be revealed as well?

The target of the poppet is lynched, following all steps of a lynching procedure, which means yes, the card will be revealed.

Is there any way to negate the Poppet's ability?

A prince is by default immune to his ability, or you can eliminate the Poppet with an attacker role like the Hunter or Assassin.

Is it not spelled "Puppet"?

We understand the confusion, but the two words are important to distinguish. A puppet is a small model of a person or animal able to be moved by strings or rods, or in the form of a glove. Puppets are often made of porcelain or clay. A poppet is a doll made in witchcraft to represent a person, used in casting spells on that person. Poppets are often made with crude materials, often with a component taken from the person itself.
