Sheriff Head Notification Reminder:
Please make sure that all added role lists are possible.
Any lists found to not be possible to start the game with will be removed.

Custom Setups are a fun way the Host can set up a Custom Mode game. Below is a list of some setups people have made. If you know any other fun setups feel free to add them to this list below.

If you do not like the setups below, a good way to think of a great setup is to center it around one role, like the Serial Killer. How to center it around the role is easy, just think of ways it could be countered (Sheriff, Investigator, Escort, Jailor.) Then put roles which help the Serial Killers (Neutral Evil, etc). Thus you have made a great setup which many will enjoy as all the roles will surely be useful.

Please try the setup first to see if it is possible, or lasts at least three nights (unique roles are unique, maximum of 15 players, minimum 7, no more than 5 Mafia, no more than 4 Vampires, and at least 2 opposing teams).

As of Version 1.5.10, it is no longer possible to have more than 6 of one role in Custom/Rapid modes.

Balanced setups Edit

These setups have Town, Mafia and Neutral roles.

Framed? (by Ramerion) Edit

This makes it so, to the Investigators, 9 people have the Framer/Vampire/Jester results, not including if one of the 3 Framers frames a target. Will be hard for Sheriff/Investigator. The Mafioso is made relatively easy to find, although a Vigilante could be mistaken for Mafioso. Vampire whittles down the Mafia, helping the town, and hurting the Vampire team, since they can claim to be framed when Mafia is around. Everyone will be VERY cautious to lynch because of Jester. Also allows the Investigator to easily find out who the other townies are, allowing them to work together.

Rolecall! (by Ramerion) Edit

Now, this one is like the one above, but a bit more complex. Doctor, Godfather, Arsonist comes up, causing confusion. Town needs to get rid of the Godfather and Arsonist, but they could also lose a Doctor, who is crucial to winning. Vigilante, Veteran, Mafioso comes up, also causing confusion. Framer, Vampire, Jester comes up, causing the most confusion; this is because anyone with these results have a high chance of being framed. This is the same for Sheriff. Investigators have a high chance of being able to find each other and the Sheriff, giving them all an advantage when they find each other.

Amnesiac's Curse Edit

You Choose (by SnokeSloth) Edit

This is centered around the Amnesiacs' choice and Amnesiac having a large presence in the game.

The Spider Tree (by Aeroface) Edit

Overview: The main gimmick of this setup is the "tree" of categories. Each of the 5 amnesiacs can choose the role that fits into that category (save for unique roles if they spawn) and fill the gap that has left already. However, amnesiacs will have to choose quickly due to the setup; because when a townie dies, their category is basically revealed with their role, making it extremely hard for evil roles to claim a role. While it sounds like the town can easily win, the result of the match is decided by the roles that people remember. If you have any feedback for the setup, just write it in the comments section. Thank you!

Blackout (by Aeroface) Edit

Feel free to leave any feedback or questions in the comments section. Thank you.

Town's Revenge Edit


Find the Serial Killers (See Top)Edit

Variation 1Edit

  • If you change the number of Serial Killers, make sure the amount of Neutral Evil goes up 1 or down one.
  • Changing the Investigative to exact roles makes the game very easy, as Serial Killers can't claim them without being called out, a way around this is reducing the Escort and Mafioso to Anys, and making the Invest roles exact.
  • The Only way a role in this game will not be very effective is if an Town investigative is a Spy, replacing the Any with a Mafia can fix that if needed/wanted.
  • If Witches are annoying, and you remove them be aware of Town's chance to win, as it will go up alot if you remove them without putting in more Evil.
  • The Mafioso can be traded for a Godfather, but then he is immune to the Serial Killer.

Variation 2Edit

  • 1 Jailor
  • 1 Veteran
  • 3 Doctor
  • 1 Investigator
  • 1 Sheriff
  • 1 Bodyguard
  • 1 Transporter
  • 3 Serial Killer
  • 1 Werewolf
  • 1 Survivor
  • 1 Witch

A Standard Town (by baddestwheel) Edit

Feel free to modify this setup to your liking, when selecting in game.

  • 1 Godfather
  • 1 Mafia Support
  • 1 Mafia Deception
  • 1 Jailor
  • 2 Town Investigative
  • 2 Town Protective
  • 1 Town Killing
  • 1 Town Support
  • 1 Random Town
  • 2 Neutral Evil
  • 1 Any
  • 1 Neutral Killing or 1 Neutral Evil or 1 Amnesiac

9-4-2 Edit

Variation Edit

  • You may replace the Medium with any other confirmed role. If it's another Town Killing, remove the 1 Town Killing and replace it with either another Random Town or Town Support.
  • While not fully recommended, you may replace the Neutral Evil with Neutral Benign. However, this can give an unfair advantage to any faction.
  • While not fully recommended, you can add more chaos by replacing the Neutral Evil with another Neutral Killing. However, this may add too much chaos.
  • You may change the random Mafia's to Mafia Support and Mafia Deception (although there is a risk of useless roles).
  • You may remove the Mafioso all-together. However, if a Godfather is jailed it will be a hard situation for Mafia.

Rainbow! Edit

Note: It needs to be set up exactly in this order for the rainbow to show.

So with the Witches being able to control Vigilantes, Lookouts, Jailors, and Investigators, it can really screw with the town. No one will know on which Witch... is which.

Scene Out of a Horror Movie Edit

You can add it in this order for a symmetrical role list:

Random Town Edit

Or if you want convenience:


You can replace the Vampire Hunter with another Serial Killer, and two of the Random Town with a Vampire Hunter and Vigilante.
