NK is Neutral Killing, not no Killing.

Otherwise, looks good.

There will be some that repeat. If your going to say the short hand version of Neutral killing, you usually do it in the lobby.

You missed healed/saved by BG and doused. For advanced, softclaiming [unless you don't call hinting at a role this]. Other than that, that's about everything I see used in a typical game.

I've never seen 90% of these abbreviations in-game.

You forgot "RB" or "RBd" for roleblock(ed).

I've seen most some of them used in games.
Everyone collectively goes "huh"

Since almost every action ends with -ed, I'll just assume that everyone knows that -ed is past tense.

I've seen BMer and BMed, for blackmailer and blackmailed. And I shorten investigator all the way down to inv sometimes. Maybe include those too?

Mafia killing is listed as MT is that intentional? Or is it suppose to be MK?

I've seen some people refers "controlled" as "witched", do you think it should be updated?

Well I suppose I should point out the N# and NS werent bolded either

Also, in every section the team (town, mafia, neutral) was underlined before listing the slang, but they weren't underlined in Actions.

This is great and has been needed for a long time! :D
Just some minor mistakes I noticed (sorry but it's a little pet peeve of mine :lol:)
Keep it up! :)

Spoiler: In order of appearance:
Guide wrote:Neutral and Mafia
Immune- Target was immune from your attempt to kill them.

Note that Vigilantes can also experience an immune message if they shoot a night immune person.
Guide wrote:Guarded You were attacked by a killing role and visited by a bodyguard.

Forgot a hyphen after "Guarded".
Guide wrote:Disguised- Disguised by a disguiser and you identities were swapped between you two.

The first "you" should definitely be "your". Consider getting rid of "between you two" to clean up the sentence a bit.
Guide wrote:Trolling- Excessively swearing, greifing...

Should be "griefing" instead of "greifing" ("i" and "e" are the wrong way around).
Guide wrote:Bus- When a mafia member another mafia member "under the bus" for the sake of looking innocent

Missing a word after "When a mafia member"?
Guide wrote:Gut instinct, gut- When your suspect someone to be evil based off how they act.

Should be "you" instead of "your".
Guide wrote:Soft Claiming- Hinting in a suddle manner that you are a certain role.

Cyantic wrote:Hinting in a *subtle manner.

Nitpicky, I know. Your welcome, by the way.

Should be "subtle" instead of "suddle".
(Cyantic already pointed this out but it wasn't changed)
