- Paranoid watcher is the same as self watcher.
- One shot at the CEO all but destroys the mafia.
- If deteriorator attracts kills during NP6, they will likely die then.

-> Shameful vig is pretty awesome.
-> Optional mason is another cool one.

Budda, when their vote doesn't show up in the vote count, it will be obvious.

I love these roles. Might use one or two of them in my upcoming game if you are okay with it TUF.

I used what you call "unvisited visitor" before.

Overall, it seems like many are good additions.
If I may add one:

ROOKIE: Each night phase, select two players. Both will be investigated for affiliation; however, only one affiliation will be correct.
My work here is, finally, done.

Yeah they are a little powerful if people know what's going on with that. The idea would be that people might not know what's going on with the vote. But obviously I couldn't use these roles now that people know the flavor.

Sure. :)

Really? Some of these roles are't exactly new. After doing a bit of research I found some of them pre-existed elsewhere by someone else. A lot of people on EM have thought some of these up already as well, I noticed, but with different names, or a slight different mechanic to the role.

9.The Phantom- May post, and vote in the game under an alternate account

I would run this role as:

The Phantom - You have two votes. The second is placed via your role pm and will show up as "The Phantom" on vote counts. You may change it whenever you would like.

It would probably be a third party of some sorts.

That would probably work too. I just thought it would be fun for people to WIFOM around the phantom and try to figure it out who he is.
