Each day, you must fakeclaim a role. Each fakeclaim must be more complex than the preceding one.

I would have called it Pathological Liar

And it would be slightly different:
  • At least once per day, you have to fake claim
  • You can never fake claim the same role twice in a row
  • If you claim Pathological Liar or a scum role, or fail to fake claim in a day, you will be modkilled.

Night 0 suicidal self-janitor Grave JOAT (1-shot Voter(non-investigative)/1-shot Alignment Cop/1-shot Vigilante(non-investigative)) Scum Hater
You die at the start of the game.
Your role does not flip upon death.
While dead you may perform the following 1-shot abilities at night(but not the same night): You may kill someone. You may determine the alignment of someone.
While dead you may perform the following 1-shot ability at day:You may vote for someone publicly. The vote threshold determination for that day is changed as if you were alive.
Alignment:Scum Hater
You lose if the game ends and you didn't win yet.
You lose if you target town with non-investigative abilities(they will be marked as such)
You win if you use up all your non-investigative abilities on targets that are not town.
If you lose you cannot use your abilities any further; and if you are alive while losing you die.

The Tombstone

When someone dies, you take his place. You cannot post nor vote, in other words, you cannot do anything in this game. You just take the place of someone that died.

Secret Random Vote Magnet Survivor

All votes cast have a 25% chance of secretly being redirected to you. Vote counts will reflect intended votes.
You win if you survive to endgame.

Secret Random Vote Deflector Jester

All votes cast on you have a 50% chance of secretly being redirected to the largest wagon that isn't yours. Votecounts will reflect intended votes.
You win if you are lynched

Naive Anti-Lyncher

Player is given a target player who they must protect from being lynched at all costs.
You win with the town as long as your anti-lynchee stays alive
The target player is scum and there are no vig kills in the game. The player is not told this fact.

Town Murderous Deloyalizer
Every night, you may target someone else to change their alignment to Survivor if they are not an Unjester, Jester or Survivor. After their alignment changes they die. If you target an Unjester, Jester or Survivor your alignment changes to theirs, then your target dies, and then your role changes to Vanilla.

Yes, that's correct. It is the only type of alignment that does not lose after being targeted.

Third Party Helper

Each night, choose a player. If that player is a third party, whatever condition fulfils that player's victory condition will automatically happen. (For example, if you target a Jester, they'll become massively Hated and end up being lynched with zero votes the next day; if you target an Unjester, you'll nightkill them; if you target a Survivor, they'll become deathproof; and so on.)

Can I steal that for Roles That Don't Work Mafia? (Most likely a sequel to the one I'm already planning.)

It doesn't take a lot of effort to explain why you haven't used your power role as a loyal vig though…

Well, I can see some merit to vigging a scumbuddy and then claiming the resulting kill. Most people would consider you confirmed town after that. (It's probably best to claim 1-shot as an excuse for not using the role subsequently in the game.)

Yes it does? Worst case you eliminate a towny you weren't sure of, best case you confirm someone as scum. You should be shooting every night.

These two posts illustrate that it doesn't take a lot, because different people will probably have completely different philosophies for the role. Worst case is scum have a roleblocker or a protective, and you get a fake guilty. 2nd worst case is you accidentally shoot a cop or a protective.

The role in mafia hands can also appear to target people depending on whether the mod counts a loyal action that targets another faction to target them.

I'm aware that it's theoretically correct to shoot as a Town Loyal Vig in most situations.

However, I'm also aware that the vast majority of players wouldn't. So even if you personally would, it'd be easy to fake that your opinion is different.
