Default How to Balance a Game of Mafia Automatically

From a list of how to make a balanced game in the Expanded edition of Werewolf, modified for mafia use.

Just make the total for all the roles as close to 0 as possible, making sure you don't have more than 1 mafia per 3 players.

Doctor (no restrictions) - +5
Doctor (can't protect same person each night) - +3
Priest (1/game, docs target until targeted once) - +3
Magician (reviver 1/game, vig 1/game) - +4

Ghost (dies night 1, can pass notes to the mod to post) - +2
Mason - +2
Old Hag (removes target from game during one day phase) - +1
Old Man - dies on day (remaining mafia + 1) - 0
Cupid (makes a pair of lovers night 0) - -3
Drunk (doesn't know special role until after 2 days) - -3
Diseased townie (no attack night after killed) - +3

Double Voter - +1
Vengeful Townie - +3
Martyr (can take the place of someone lynched) - +3
Unlynchable Townie - +3
Miller - -1
Actor - +2
Priest - +2

1/game voteblocker - +1
Tough Guy (dies one night after being killed) - +3
Troublemaker (specifies there will be 2 lynches that day) - +2

Townie - +1

MAFIA-ALIGNED ROLES
Mafia - -6
town-investigating GF - -7
Un-NKable, town-investigating GF - -8

Mafia cop - -7
Mafia cop (doesn't know fellow mafia) - -3
Mafia bomb (double kill next night if dies) - -8
