First idea has, I believe, been explored already. I am not certain, but I am pretty sure I have seen something like it somewhere.
The second idea coincidently is similar to mine made a bit of a while back 'Landlord'. For now, I don't see many problems with this, except that roles splitting abilities have already been done before, and we already have a fairly popular one being tested by other forumers 'Distributor', even if it was a while back.
The third idea, I can tell you for a fact, people hate. The idea of killing 2 non mafia in 1 night by mafia is extremely powerful. Usually, ideas like Sinper aren't taken seriously.

You have a good mind, though. Your ideas, though not completely unique, are balanced, and are yours. Welcome to the role msking community by the way!

1. Vote Manipulater
2. Self confirming with TIs because they get no results and overall a self confirming Doctor
3. Mafia KPN increaser
RNG is never good for any strategy based game. Please learn the definition of what that means, especially if you're one of the people constantly defending it.

i think the sniper should have cooldown instead of charges for example 2-4 days. mafia would not get too many extra kill and it would not hope you are promoted to mafioso so fast

I made this post a long time ago, but I’ll still reply to you :D
Briber has been explored already by another guy, but I made it have a different ability. Seththeking described a briber as bribing players to target themselves. As you can see, much different than my idea.
I like the relocater a LOT, it is a new town protective that doesn’t just heal or kill visitors- it’s a new idea entirely! Although, I’ll the honest, the original idea came from my stepdad xb I still edited some things, so I take partial credit for it.
I agree, the sniper sucks. I made this when I was just starting to do custom roles, and I just wanted to post it because I was proud of it at the time. But looking back, it is pretty terrible....
All in all, good constructive criticism. :D

First Briber: Should only be able to not bribe the Mayor when revealed.

Relocator: Sounds like a transporter

Sniper: I would make it so it can't shoot N1 and maybe have 3 shots
