Please do not post before the- oh, wait.
This Mafia nonsense has happened dozens and dozens of times before; it's all the same, really, with few variations; murderers attack some group of people, who retaliate by forming lynch mobs to kill each other in hopes of finding their assailants. It's all the same basic formula, with few variations. No matter how many bells and whistles you attach to the situation, at its core, it's as simple as us-versus-them.
This time, it's no different. In a nondescript, peaceful village in the mountains to the west, people go about their daily lives, getting along with one another. Everyone did their part, everyone worked together. Then... people started disappearing. The tendrils of worry, suspicion and paranoia began to work their way into the villager's minds, and, now, every action is under close scrutiny, no man, woman or child is unsuspected. Another peaceful and happy settlement, corrupted by the Mafia phenomenon. People tend not to think about that part.
Pretty soon, it'll reach the boiling point. There's already talk amongst the villagers of storming into a suspicious neighbor's house and putting them on trial in a sort of kangaroo court. Talk of mobs. Talk of lynchings. Things will get violent, and soon. The game will come soon, and there's not much to be done about it. We are in the waiting stage, that tense period when you're waiting for the bad guys to strike.
It happens eventually.

A minority among the Inhabitants, Villagers have no special powers. They do have a say in who is lynched.
Among the Inhabitants are an Investigation Team of three Detectives, tasked with solving the disappearances. As long as one of them lives, they can collectively investigate one Inhabitant each night.
The noble and chivalrous Keeper of Love and Justice is a boisterous ninja who's taken it upon himself to keep the citizenry safe. He may pursue one Inhabitant each night, and do one of two things: attack them, and kill them if they are a Shadow, Vampire, Murderer or the End; or, he may protect them from "the forces of evil!!"
The King is a very charismatic person, that is all that is known of him/her.
The Moon Captain can bring a dead Inhabitant back during the 12-hour daytime period so that they may go about their business; the person he chooses dies at nightfall. His cousin, the Ferryman of the Stars, can do the same during the nighttime; his mark dying at dawn. The Ferryman can only resurrect those who have been dead for 3 days.
Lurking the streets at night is a Trickster. If you're unfortunate enough to be picked by him, he'll knock you out and hide you in some dark corner some where. His victims usually show up 24 hours later with no idea what happened.
Shadows are mysterious invaders from another dimension who wander into the village at night. If you are found by them, they will assimilate your biomass; in layman's terms, eat you. They look just like normal Villagers, and you might just interact with one without realizing it.
There are five different Murderers, all copycat killers imitating the Shadows. Unlike the Shadows, they're not organized.
One victim of a recent plague is hiding in the village. This Vampire may convert one other Inhabitant to his kind each night; as a group, Vampires may only take one victim each night. Alternatively, Vampires may slay their own kin.
There is one otherwise normal person, the End, destined to bring about the end of the universe. Every other inhabitant has a subconscious urge to kill the End, and if the End finds out about his/her own powers...
