BYOR 15: Game Over - Mafia Win (Kinda?)

This is BYOR 15 (Bring Your Own Role). You can choose any role, picture, short story, Wikipedia page, molecule, idea, noun, dream, favorite color, star athlete, cosmological signÖ You get the idea, I hope. As long as it has a short description, Wikipedia link, or video (preferably short), I don't mind. If there is no explanation, and I'm oblivious to the knowledge, you're in a bit of trouble, as I casually make things up out of a hat. I'll make up the action(s) to your role. No matter what your role, no action or alignment will ever be guaranteed.

This game will start some time after Bastard Paranormal 3 ends.

Game Theme: Suspectators
Effect: The moderators and spectators may also send in a role for themselves. These roles will be revealed at the beginning of the game, and their potential effects explained then.
Effect: All Players, spectators, and moderators must send in a level of shenanigans from the list provided when they send in their roles. If no level is sent in, one will be chosen for you, at random.


How to Join:
Send me a PM with your desired role. In addition, please choose a number for your preferred level of shenanigans:
0 - No shenanigans
These roles are exactly what they say on the tin. They're not fancy, they inspect, block, track. Maybe something nice as a one-shot. Completely at the mercy of all other players.
Spoiler: Examples (click to show/hide)

1-3 - Light Shenanigans
These roles have a small amount of leeway to avoid other shenanigans.
Spoiler: Examples (click to show/hide)

4-6 - Medium Shenanigans
These roles can screw with investigative roles, or just other players in general.
Spoiler: Examples (click to show/hide)

7-9 - Heavy Shenanigans
Your role will cause significant headaches for other players. But, honestly, they deserved it.
Spoiler: Examples (click to show/hide)

10 - Gravity Well Shenanigans
Your role causes game rules to stop functioning correctly. It doesnít completely stop the game from working, but could potentially throw the balance against the wall if the role owner could know more than they already do.
Spoiler: Examples (click to show/hide)

11 - Shakeragian Shenanigans
Your role causes game mechanics to stop functioning correctly. This one causes absolutely unknowable games, are completely and utterly unbalanced, and are probably what 50% of players are gonna pick anyway, you monsters.
Spoiler: Examples (click to show/hide)

Spoiler: Basic rules (click to show/hide)

You are not in the game until I receive a role. Also, don't under- or overestimate your abilities. And have fun! Because, honestly, that's the whole point.

Also, for those without knowledge of how I style roles, here's a little cheat sheet! If you ask me one of these questions, I will not answer it.

webadict is silly and forgot to put it obviously in the OP, but I'm pretty sure this game will start after BP3 ends, he's putting it up in advance to give himself more time to cook roles.

Speaking of which, in.

Hold up, is it possible to sign up as a moderator? Not going to do it, just want to know what the plural of "moderators" in the OP means.

Well, someone is observant. Why, it might be possible to sign-up as a moderator, but that's definitely a more rigorous process, and not open to the same rules posted here.

You know, it's fucking uncanny how many times people scream that Jim is out to get them and has rallied the town to destroy them, like he's the head of some damn conspiracy theory or something.  I've learned to recognize this as something I call "The Jimbot Fallacy".
