So I kinda sorta know why I don't fit in any cliques now... It's because I am never in GD.

What the actual frick happened to this thread? The questions at the beginning were at least decent.

Is there a thread that lists all the commonly used terms here? I've forgotten a lot of stuff about how to play mafia and I need a refresher course. I remember LAMIST and bussing and that's about it

The wiki has some, although probably not up to date.

Welcome to my thread. This is a safe place for people that need info on basic stuff.

Category:Glossary (and for abbreviations, Commonly Used Abbreviations, which is part of the glossary; the abbreviations don't normally have individual entries).

It's less out of date than you might expect (I've been updating it sporadically) but there are still quite a few recent terms that are missing.

Is "X-Shot Vanilla Townie" a well-defined normal role? Or possibly "X-Shot Townie" in accordance with the usual tradition of modifiers replacing the word Vanilla a la Bulletproof Townie.

(It would presumably just be a type of named townie.)

Yeah, I would be against allowing such a role in a normal game.

Another modifier question: Is there any precedent for a "cannot target the same player more than once" as a modifier? Is there a usual name for it?

(If not, I suggest Wandering)

I can't remember the name, but there actually IS a modifier, standardized with one name, that works exactly that way.

It was used in a bunch of games, mostly by a few moderators in particular, but I can't remember what the name was.

So it exists, and it exists with a standardized name even, I just can't remember it.

X-Shot VT is actually a role that turns into survivor after X cycles

I believe it was called Hideous?

Looks like that's right, or at least that name has been used for that modifier before.

New question! Is there a collection of relatively simple closed setups that are universally agreed to be balanced, that I or others can use as points of comparison when evaluating the balance of a new setup?

Not really (?)

You can check the archives I guess, and look at the open and semi-open setups. If you are doing a micro, the matrix6 stat info is a nice baseline for balancing.
