    I'm gonna go for a Chinese angle, and vote plarq, firstly for the group of thugs bashing someone to death (recent Uighur riots), and secondly for the allusion to communism. And then, perhaps, Nictel and Empiremaker.

    Catharsis, Chairman Meow, and Nictel.

    And if any of you vote for yourself, I'll kill you at the next night. :D

    plarq. The Chinese connection is obvious!

    Maybe it's someone who was involved in SnF.

    The Pirate fought the Archmage and the Satyr, but Renata, oyzar, and scherbchen aren't in this game.

    I'll just vote Izipo then. :D

    And Catharsis.

    Empiremaker for the sea reference.

    Nictel for the galleon avatar.

    And Catharsis for the bird avatar.

    Hmm. Alright, those of you who are voting for me, listen to this. I was not here at the time the game started (check my posting records, you'll see that it's true) and so if I was mafia, I would not have been able to send in a kill on the first night. So one of these 100%-certain true clues that electric made must point to me.

    Which one do think points to me, and why? Because if neither one does, then I cannot be the mafia.

    Ok first off I wasn't around 15+16 July, so please explain how exactly I send in the kills? Secondly the same clue again?! Surely not. As such I cannot be Mafia.

    Of course! He's made of rubidium, therefore he's the mafia!

    As long as I'm awake (zombies and pi and Cookie monsters) I'll post a random thought:

    The XKCD forums have an entire subforum about mafia games.

    Sorry for the delay guys. As I may have mentioned before, my lack of inactivity has been due to an unreliable internet connection, so I have been online only sparingly. So here's the update. Again, sorry for the delays.

    Spoiler :
    That is also why my caption contest hasn't been updated yet, to whom it may concern.


    The townsfolk have awoken to find that...

    Gentlemen, start your votes!
    Day in 48 hours!

    Ok... so the key word in the first clue appears to be "racket." In this context, it means noise, but it could also be taken to mean one of the other definitions of "racket," such as a tennis racket, or a mafia racket. So the clue seems to lead toward either someone who plays tennis, or has some sort of reference to mafia (other than playing this game, of course). It would be a giveaway clue if MobBoss were playing. :D On Bratmon's profile, he mentions a racket in which he jumps in front of cars to sue the drivers. So I'm going to take the clue to point to him and thus vote for him.

    For the other clue, clearly it's referring to a type of cat (cheetah, to be specific). Another type of cat is the common housecat. As is commonly known, the common cat emits a "Meow" sound. So I'll vote for Chairman Meow as he has that word in his username.

    Although I agree about Bratmon, I still have my doubts about you.
    It could be true and would fit well with the Chinese connection we had before too (Chairman Mao anyone ?)... But, I think there's more to it than that.

    For the first clue I'll go with Bratmon for the racket thingy.

    For the second i'll go with Chairman Meow based on Chairman Meow's reasoning. But i guess it could be CCRunner aswell, with a cheetah being a good runner and all.

    Me? That's a huge stretch. A very huge stretch.

    But, yes, Chairman Meow, for starting a stupid bandwagon, and being the subject of the clue.

    I don't think that Chairman Meow is the killer, so that leaves him out. I think the reasoning for Bratmon is good so he is one of the killers. I will go with CCRunner with the reasoning of Snerk.
