Mafia Lingo/Dictionary
« on: November 06, 2012, 02:19:30 pm »

People have wanted this for a while so I'll just start with the ones I know and I'll keep this post updated as people comment more of them

Commonly Used Acronyms
RVS - Random Voting Stage
LyLo - Lynch Or Lose (Correctly [Lynch Scum Or Lose])
MyLo - Mislynch And Lose
FoS - Finger of suspicion
OMGUS - Oh my god you suck
VT - Vanilla Townie
PR - Power Role
WIFOM - Wine in front of me (this is what this causes me to think but the mafia might want me to think this)
Quickhammer - Voting for someone at L-1 who you were not voting for, to end the day for some reason (often to win as scum, or to stop discussion)
SK - Serial Killer
NK - Night Kill (Rarely No Kill based on context)
QH - Quickhammer
WW - Werewolf (on f.DS these are common only if there is multiple factions)

Commonly Used Terms
Bus -Building a case on your teammates and often voting for your teammates as scum
Sheep - to vote or argue without adding content of your own. (in reference to sheeplike (unoriginal) thinking.)
Tunnel: to develop tunnel vision on a player and see anything they do as scummy
ObvX - obviously X (e.g. obvtown = obviously town)
Breadcrumb - Leaving a hint at what your role is (or to set up a fakeclaim) in a post
Claim - to announce all of or parts of ones role
Massclaim - Everyone claiming their role in an order, normally to try and catch scum in a lie

F.DS Specific
Derphammer - Quickhammering as town, on town in a situation that doesn't benefit town
PINL - Promise I'm Not Lying
Twinclaim - the fact that you know another player in real life; and also deriving information from that fact. - First instance is Jo/Glooble in MIV
Pulling/Doing an eHunt - drunk posting often in a hilarious way. See MVI
DAMA - Drunk ask me anything, see Pulling/Doing an eHunt.
Pulling a Bozzball - Lurking oneself out of a game, from either faction. Generally caused by an apathetic attitude towards the game rather than a planned (or even unplanned!) strategy
Kickball - See Pulling/Doing an eHunt
No Lunch - Started as a phone typo by Axxle in BM3, turned into a joke by the mod and players of that game, means no lynch but tends to result in hungry mafia players.
S.H.D - Stop Halt Desist.

The "Morgrim Defense" - In his first game here (M2) Morgrim self hammered, since then he has raised his meta as someone who is always just a bit crazy and always seems super scummy. The Morgrim defense is that crazy Morgrim is town Morgrim. This forum has not yet seen scum Morgrim.

Pulling an Insomniac - Depending on context either, having the right lynch and talking yourself out of it and into a town lynch, or as an IC voting for someone you think as town in an attempt to catch the hammer...in a game where mafia have day chat.

Mom Salon - Refers to player Mcmcsalot, comes from a phone autocorrect in ZMIX.

Fuzzy - Refers to Eevee

Isn't lylo rather lynch or lose, referring to situation where town needs to lynch someone to avoid getting endgamed?

Derphammering is a term specific to this forum. I'ts hard to describe (should probably ask O, the master), but cutting the discussion short by quickhammering someone would be my attempt.

I'd say PINL ("promise I'm not lying") is specific to this forum.

Maybe include links to relevant mafiascum wiki entries?  E.g.:

RVS - Random Voting Stage
LyLo - Lynch Or Lose
MyLo - Mislynch And Lose
FoS - Finger of suspicion
OMGUS - Oh my god you suck
VT - Vanilla Townie
PR - Power Role
WIFOM - Wine in front of me (this is what this causes me to think but the mafia might want me to think this)

also worth defining the use of:
-to bus: attacking your team mates as scum to make it look like you're not on their team
-to sheep: to vote or argue without adding content of your own. (in reference to sheeplike (unoriginal) thinking.)
-to tunnel: to develop tunnel vision on a player and see anything they do as scummy
-obvX: obviously X (e.g. obvtown = obviously town)

How about DAMA?

Posting wasted with the argument that drunk mafia would not be able to keep their lies straight.

I guess I should point out that some of the later entries under Acronyms aren't acronyms (bus, sheep, tunnel, etc)

Breadcrumb is to intentionally plant something erlier in the day or in days before, so that it can be picked up later in the game to reinforce a claim of a role or an action.

Werewolf is a flavour mafia, often used when there are two mafia factions. One "regular" and one "werewolf" faction.

Massclaim is when all or most of the players in a set up claims their role.

Which reminds me. Claim - To announce one's role or parts of it.

Pulling a Bozzball - Lurking oneself out of a game, from either faction. Generally caused by an apathetic attitude towards the game rather than a planned (or even unplanned!) strategy.

Derphammering is when quickhammers go derp.

Faust has also been incredibly stubborn this game. In other news, it's hot in the summer, and water falls from the sky when it rains.

I'm feeling good about being the originator of two F.DS-specific terms.

perhaps something about card name or card role in the fds portion. We have a lot of games that are dominion flavored and as such many games have roles that are styled after a dominion card and given the name of the card.
