Will Templates
It's always important to keep a will in this game if you don't already, because people in this game will devour you if you don't keep a will.

Here's the most basic version of a will you can have, that you can follow pretty easy. It's pretty basic, though.

[Name] - [Role]

n1 : [Who you visited] - [Results]
n2 : [Who you visited] - [Results]
n3 : [Who you visited] - [Results]
n4 : [Who you visited] - [Results]
n5 : [Who you visited] - [Results]
n6 : [Who you visited] - [Results]
n7 : [Who you visited] - [Results]

Sample Will:

Kappa - Investigator

n1 : William - Vigilante, Veteran, Mafioso
n2 : John - Bodyguard, Godfather or Arsonist
n3 : Dan - Medium, Jaintor, Retri
n4 : Shawn - Survivor, Vampire Hunter, Amnesiac

Another sample will: (Commented by "Multihack")

Alignments and their nicknames
Here are all the possible alignments in the game, with all the roles and the nicknames/ abbreviations for the roles.
(+ Icon = New Roles with the Coven Update)

Town Protective (TP) - Doctor (Doc), Bodyguard (BG), Crusader (Crus) (+), Trapper (+)
Town Support (TS) - Escort (Esc), Mayor, Medium (Med), Retributionist (Retri), Transporter (Trans)
Town Investagative (TI) - Sheriff, Investigator (Invest), Spy, Lookout (LO), Tracker (+), Psychic (Psy) (+)
Town Killing (TK) - Jailor, Vampire Hunter (VH), Veteran (Vet), Vigilante (Vig)
(Mostly Town are initialed, and on Ranked there is just random mafia, which can be any of the role below:)
Mafia Killing - Godfather (GF), Mafioso, Ambusher (+)
Mafia Support - Blackmailer (BM), Consigiere (Consig), Consort
Mafia Deception - Disguiser (Disg), Forger, Framer, Janitor (Jan), Hypnotist (Hypno) (+)
Neutral Benign - Amnesiac (Amne), Survivor (Surv), Guardian Angel (+, GA)
Neutral Evil - Executioner (Exe), Jester (Jest), Witch
Neutral Killing - Arsonist (Arso), Serial Killer (SK), Werewolf (WW), Juggernaut (Jugg)
Neutral Chaos - Vampire (Vamp), Pirate (+), Plaguebearer (Pb, +), Pestilence (Pest, +)
(Coven Exclusive)
Coven Evil - Coven Leader (CL, +), Hex Master (HM, +), Poisoner (+), Potion Master (PM, +), Medusa (desu) (+), Necromancer (+, Necro)

Fun Fact: Jailor says Town Killing, but if there is already a Jailor on the role list, there can't be another jailor. Jailor is a unique role (along with: Godfather, Mayor, Retributionist, Veteran, Mafioso, Ambusher (+), Juggernaut (+), Plaguebearer (+), Pestilence (+), Pirate (+), Werewolf, Coven Leader (+), Necromancer (+), Medusa (+), Potion Master (+), Poisoner (+), Hex Master. (+)) There can not be two of these roles in a game, even in custom.

Edit: You can also check this in game by just clicking on the role list... also you can see the description of each role! Pretty neat. Now this section is somewhat pointless, besides the abreviations.

Edit 2: Added some more will abbreviations, thanks to therobertor2000 for that.

Edit 3: Added a few more role abbreviations, thanks to ElementalWAFE and KaneTheBoom!

Ambusher and Hypnotist have been added to the base game. Could you add them to the normal results?

This has helped me with many games, so awarded.

Thanks for the suggestions, just updated the role nicknames!
ElementalWAFE Jan 7, 2020 @ 11:27am 
@andrej.stojanovic07 its only in custom games unique roles can be duplicated, but its custom, so it has unofficial role lists so isn't really ever considered. Unique roles are only unique in any game mode that isn't custom

People also shorten the following
Doctor --> Doc (pretty obvious)
Crusader --> Crus
Escort --> Esc
Medium --> Med Note: Medusa has similar start, id recommend just saying medusa
when referring to medusa
Psychic --> Psy
Mafioso --> Maf (often only in invest wills cuz it is confusing at times)
Disguiser --> Disg
Janitor --> Jan
Hypnotist --> Hypno (again a pretty obvious one)

This has probs already been added in comments but just wanted to expand on the nicknames :)
