    We'll let's not having it be too complicated and back up for your first hosting. (I'm damn good at design but hate vote counting.)

    There are some things to keep in mind. A doctor with a cop can devolve into a follow the cop game. This is where town ceases to scumhunt and follows the cop. There are several methods to get around this (roleblocker, limited use doc/cop, macho).

    Generally you don't want to concentrate the power of town in the hands of one player as well. 90% of the night actions capable would be in the hands of one player. That's not the best idea. For newbie hosts, hosting a semi-open might be the best idea. Working with what we have

    Mafia Specialist (Roleblocker, Agent [Watcher + Tracker], or Rolecop)
    Mafia 1-Shot BP Traitor [Can investigate any player to see if they are the mob. If he finds a Mob, he joins as a vanilla]
    Mafia Encryptor (Allows Daychat)
    Neutral Killer (Serial Killer, Arsonist, Spree Killer) (Can pick investigation immune or NK immune) or VT
    Town Protective (Bodyguard, Doctor, X-Shot Bulletproof, or Immune to one type)
    Town Investigative (Gunsmith, Cop, Watcher, Tracker, Agent)
    Town PR (Any of the above + Vigilante or Roleblocker or Neighbors or Masons)
    Town PR or VT
    Town PR or VT
    Town 1-shot PR or VT
    VT
    VT
    VT


    The options I have here are fluid. If you don't include a neutral killer, the setup would be townsided if you added a PR in its place. This would work as a Upick as there's enough fluidity to ensure whatever people submitted could work in the boxes.

    If scum have very little power ex: Rolecop only, Town's power should be reduced accordingly. The more killing roles there are, the more power town needs to compensate.

    titus i think you just overcomplicated it now. i was looking at it as an open game moreso and the cop/doc are in same slot so its not a follow the cop game

    Aye, you don't have to stress over making it balanced. It's your game, so have fun making it absolutely any way you want. (Just no Cults, please. :D)

    cults are fun roles. they are usually 3rd party scums who start as one or 2

    there is usally a cult leader who recruits players into the cult as well

    basicly its a swing type role. many people hate it b/c of the fact if you get cults your alignment and win-con change and you have to adjust your reads accordingly

    i will think about hosting a cult-like game as an example maybe later after halloween game b/c it fits theme

    in otherwords you may start as town but if you get recutied to cult, you are no longer aligned with town and now aligned with cult

    more often then not cults can not win with town or mafia and win by obtaining living majority. they also often do not get a nk. their strength lies in the numbers
