The name of the setup refers to the public night gatherings arranged by the Town Arrangers. Is the setup too Town-sided, Mafia-sided or too SK-Sided? Also is the number of Vanilla Townies fine?
Mini Version3 Vanilla Townies
2 Town Masons
2 Town Vigilantes
2 Town Arrangers
2 Mafia Exploders
2 Serial Killers


Roles
Spoiler: Arranger
You have the following active ability:
  • Each Day, you may choose to arrange a public night gathering. Assuming no interference with your action, the moderator will add every player to a temporary Gathering PT for the following night and lock all other non-Gathering PTs. This will prevent any actions which require a PT from happening, like groupscum factional actions.

Why would organizers ever not use their action? It totally shuts down all scum nightkills, that's hugely powerful.

Serial Killer can still kill but I guess that Organiser is literally a pseudo-Protective except that they can't protect against the Vigilante and Serial Killer.
Which is intentional. However claiming Organiser before the Serial Killer dies is dangerous because Serial Killer can still kill during the gathering.

The serial killer's kill is generally considered to be a factional ability, so that isn't how most people would interpret the setup.

So would 'groupscum factional' be better?
