Welcome to Mafia Theme Guides! Want to know how to play a specific mafia theme? Then you're in the right place! Click on the theme you want to learn, then scroll to your given Role. Note: These guides assume a basic understanding of the way mafia is played. If you are a beginner, try RiceKirby's guide first. Be sure to familiarize yourself with /mafiarules before playing any theme. Simple: Default Zelda SI Vengeful Oracle Dethy Intermediate: Elements FE (Fire Emblem) FF (Final Fantasy) Ghosts Outbreak Ragnarok Online Advanced: Body CG (Lelouch of the Rebellion) DNR (Death Note Rewrite) Naruto List of Terms (some of these are repeated from the beginners guide): Spoiler Villager/Townie - A role that has no powers, or very minimal powers. They are the stuffing of a theme, and usually at least 2 spawn. Insp - Inspector. A role that can learn someone else's role by Inspecting them. BG - Bodyguard A role that can Protect another player during the Night to stop them from dying to a kill. PL - Distracter. A role that can Distract another player during the Night to stop them from using any Night Actions. Spy - Can learn what happens during the Night, no special commands. See: Hax. Vigi - Vigilante. A role that can Kill during the Night, but is sided with the Village. Samurai - A role that can Kill during the Day, and is often times exposed upon doing so, and is sided with the Village. Mayor - A role whose vote is counted as 2 or more during the Vote Phase. Anti-Mayor - A role whose vote counts as a negative number during the Vote Phase. Exposer - A role that can Expose during the Day, revealing their role to everyone. Neighbor - A role that can visit someone during the Night, informing that person of the Neighbor's identity. Stalker - A role that can Stalk during the Night, learning whom their target visited. Watcher - A role that can Watch during the Night, learning by whom their target was visited. Mafia/Scum - Usually, this just refers to anyone who isn't sided with the Village. Miller - A role that thinks they are a Villager, but if someone Inspects or Exposes them, they appear to be Mafia, even though they are actually sided with the Village. Mole - A role that is sided with the Mafia, but if someone Inspects or Exposes them, they appear to be sided with the Village. Poisoner - A role that can Poison someone during the Night, causing that person to die at the end of a later night. Priority Killer - A role that can Kill faster than anyone else in the game, usually before BGs. WW - Werewolf. Usually, WW refers to a role that kills and PLs that visit them, and is often a solo role. Kuja - A role that is unparalleled in the Vote Phase, by having 100+ Votes and usually a significant Voteshield. GF - Godfather. Refers to a solo role which is significantly stronger than most other Mafia due to being alone. Often they can kill twice per night, have extra votes, bulletproof, or are also Moles. PR - Power Role. This refers to some strong role on the Village, like Inspector, Bodyguard, Samurai, Distracter, Mayor, Vigilante, Exposer, Spy, etc. Claim - To reveal your own role (privately to another player or publicly). Counter - To contest someone else's claim by saying you are the actual role that they claimed. Connect - To connect PRs is to inform them who the other PRs are. The idea is to make it so every unique role knows every other unique role. Clean - Someone who has been cleaned has been ruled out as a mafia suspect, meaning they can be trusted with the Village. Hax - Some roles have a chance of identifying other roles during the Night. This is referred to as Hax. Lead - To initiate a Vote on someone that others can follow. Lynch - The process of eliminating someone during the Vote Phase. Meatshield - Meatshielding is a strategy that Villagers sometimes use: the idea is to claim a Power Role in order to attract Mafia to kill them instead of said valuable Power Role. Often it is risky, because if the Power Role thinks you are Countering instead of Meatshielding, they may try to lynch you. Rand - Random Vote. Can also refer to any uninformed action, such as rand-killing, rand-PLing, rand-BGing, etc. Reduced Deaths - If the amount of Kills during the Night is lower than is normally expected, there are a fewer reason to speculate as the cause. Usually, it means the Distracter was on a Mafia Killer that Night. Reveal - To publicly confirm (or claim with evidence) someone else's role. Voice - Someone who reveals information on behalf of a Power Role so that the Power Role doesn't get exposed. Bus - Short for "throwing your teammate under the bus". It's a strategy used a lot in simpler themes. In order to earn the trust of the Village, a Mafia player might lynch one of their teammates, appearing to be a Power Role, or just a lucky Villager, which means people will assume they are clean. BTW, always make sure you have your teammate's permission before doing this. Soft Bus - Similar to the above, but usually the intent is not to actually lynch your teammate. You might soft bus by voting a teammate if the lynch is already determined by the majority of votes. Alternatively, it can be used by suggesting your partner for a lynch, even if you don't lead the vote. 1v1 - A "One versus One" Vote. Two Players vote each other, while no one else intervenes. The goal is to test for Mayors, Anti-Mayors, or Kujas. Spam - Typing your Night command in repeatedly. Sometimes, Power Roles can hax each other, so spamming the same command increases your chances of finding a teammate. Not to be confused with the kind of Spam that will get you server kicked. PL Stall - Repeatedly Distracting the same person in order to stop them from taking action. Voteshield - A number that is automatically added to a role if it is voted for. An example is Vaporeon in EV. Vaporeon's Voteshield is 2, so if 3 people vote a Vaporeon, then 3+2=5 so Vaporeon receives 5 votes. Contributing: We encourage everyone to help out with this project. QC may write any Theme Guide, and a Theme Author may write Guides for any of their Theme. To do so, simply post in this thread, and I'll add a link in this post. If you are not QC or the Author of a theme, you can get special permission from Lead QC to write a guide for a Theme of which you can demonstrate extensive knowledge. If you want to reserve a theme you are planning to write a guide for, post in this thread and you can edit later with your actual guide within a week. Theme Authors always have priority in case of multiple reservations. Note: this thread is only for Theme Guides. Please offer suggestions for additions changes to a guide in this thread.
