To state what your role is, truthfully or not. Often a roleclaim is a last defense against being lynched. The Town doesn't want to lynch its Doctor, or Cop, so they may back off if that's what the person claims to be.
Of course this has given rise to strategies like Lepton's Gambit, where a Mafia member claims to be something he isn't in order to avoid lynching, and possibly lynch someone else he believes to be one of the Power Roles instead.
See also mass roleclaim.
