Another Sin II Puzzle

LegionPharma (thanks Jackson) has a new press release online, offering another puzzle teasing what we are assuming is an eventual announcement of Sin II. In addition to the press release, the site also now lists a new job opening which will likewise provide a challenge for you cryptography skills.

but don't spew that you "solved things already"

I never said I solved everything already, but you where giddy over the 14 7. I am a chemist, as soon as I thought about it, it was obvious to be. Get over your jealousy.

But again, you go on and on insulting me….because I do not enjoy something you do….

I suggest you re-read my last post, stop getting so damn defense and learn to grow as a human. I was at no fucking point insulting you, the puzzles, ect. You just can not admit you where wrong. All I fucking said was I am bored of these….grow the fuck up man.

You guys trivialize to try and support your minority opinion.

Like 14/7 translating to SiN. I wouldn't even call that a puzzle, more of a logo.

Getting SiN (which is a piece of another puzzle still unsolved) from 14 - 7 on the splash page took figuring it from the periodic table. That came about due to the chemical tie-ins from the back story nad quite a bit of good sleuthing. Yeah. That's not a puzzle. Ok. Have another cup of llama juice.

No pay off?

Concept art

http://www.legionpharma.com/about.php?U4forEverybody
(Code needed "Demosthenes")

Character Previews (thought by many to be updated JC - Blades haxor sidekick from Sin)

http://www.legionpharma.com/about.php?4yoUreyesonly

Game Music? (from Rit's music guy)

http://www.legionpharma.com/about.php?U4forEverybody
(Code needed "Genome")

Developers (Puzzle unsoved....as yet)
http://www.legionpharma.com/about.php?U4forEverybody
(Code needed "Money")

Backstory (Who is G - How does it tie in?)
http://www.legionpharma.com/about.php?U4forEverybody
(Code needed "Doom") (Lot's of speculation on this as the new Engine?)

4-5 more code words as yet unsolved and sure to lead to more items that are sure to tell us more.

Quite a bit of holes filled in on Sherily Palmer Blade's mother thought to have perished in a fire.

And this isn't even the announcement in 6 days...most of these items alone would have PC gamer and lot's of sites jumping to include them in news or as lead items....

Your opinion is your opinion - but don't spew that you "solved things already" (Enahs - pronounced Enough) -prove it. There's 4-5 keywords left...let's see how easy you come up with them and what we get. After all it's jsut counting according to you...

Apparently you'll only be happy when you get that "happy ending" from your keyboard - Minority.

Quite a bit of good stuffhere if you'd like to follow the progress...23 pages and counting.

Thanks for the laugh...

<i>I hardly think that complaining about them is going to make them stop.</i>

I'm going with Enahs here.


No one wishes they would stop, we're only saying they should either be more entertaining or more of a payoff.

Like 14/7 translating to SiN. I wouldn't even call that a puzzle, more of a logo.

As I mentioned above, there should be some incentive other than information you already know.

wasn't counting and it shows how ignorant and what a troll you are.

Troll…good lord. I wish people would learn what that word meant instead of using it as they believe to be an insult.

I voiced my opinions. Let me state them again for you.

The puzzles where neat at first, I was into them (look at the post history), I even had dialogue about them from someone who works at Ritual! But they got boring and repetitive for IN MY OPINION not much gain. I am sorry if your high and mighty self has a different opinion and feels the need to insult me and call me a liar because I have a different opinion than you.

We probably have different favorite colors, should I just chop off my hand to pay amends to going against your opinion on a favorite color now? Or can you call me a liar and insult me before I do it?

You may be looking forward to this game, as I am looking very forward. But as far as puzzles go, these really do SUCK. Get over your self man.


Troll on Enah. Puzzle Poser. You couldn't solve your fingers being crossed. HA!!!!

Ouch…that so burns…you much be using the Insult Master 5000+ extreme…….


I hardly think that complaining about them is going to make them stop.

Where did I say they should stop? That people should ignore them? That they where in anyway stupid, useless or a waste of Rituals time? Where did I say anything negative about them? Everything I said boils down to “Ehh”…..

It was a freakin opinion, which apparently other people have about the same as me.

If you care so little about these puzzles, or they annoy you, then why the hell bother? They're there for those who want to figure them out. I hardly think that complaining about them is going to make them stop. Besides, any information, be it obscure or otherwise, is better than no information if you're a fan of the game.

I sloved that one over a week ago.

Prove it. This (the 14-7 puzzle) wasn't counting and it shows how ignorant and what a troll you are. There have been images that needed to be read and altered, periodic chart puzzles, coding puzzles, calculus, etc. All of which are part of the back story and relevant.

We are now way beyond the first "counting" puzzle as you describe it.

did you know we solved the 14 -7 from the splash page?

Sorry, but it is just getting lame. Counting is not hard.

I can only laugh at the whiners here. !!!! HA!

Lot's of us are having great fun at the clues. Loyal Sin players know the images (BTW that wasn't a chick with glasses...it's JC from the original Sin). All of the clues to date provide interesting and relevant backstory to the game.

Ritual continues to be a creative company not just satisfied with giving thier loyal fans a press release.

Lurk on puzzle whiners. You'll get your official release soon. In the mean time - did you know we solved the 14 -7 from the splash page?

Look at the periodic table :
14 = Si (silicium)
7 = N (nitrogen)

14 7 = SiN

HA! Love it!

Elexis was butch.


No, giving clues that we already know is a waste of time.

Giving clues to other clues which lead to URLs with teaser images or fractions of a screenshot, or even a brief .wav file of a shotgun blast impacting a liver and the owner of sed liver screaming in pain... now those are teasers.

No one cares about the plot of an FPS game, look how weak Far Cry's was! Give us gaming goodness!

Seriously, what did you expect it to say?

"Congrats, you've won a free copy of Sin2, click here"?

I dunno. Maybe each puzzle would result it parts of a screen shot, and after all where solved you could put together a screen shot.
Maybe a tidbit of info on the game play.

Not a freakin picture of some girls glasses….ohh wow! Ohh…a MP3 of really crappy music…hooray!

No, I was very interested at first, posted in the other ones a lot…but….like I said….Ehh!

Counting isn't fun. Counting letters in paragraphs is less fun. Counting them on a monitor is less fun still.

All that for ELEXISISBACK? Nope, not possible to enjoy that time, or even get it back.

Just solve the puzzles and enjoy yourselves for goodness sakes.


These puzzles aren't fun! They need to be patched!



Find the first LegionPharma post here. Within minutes we all saw the puzzle and knew what it was. But we were all too lazy to bother counting out 66 letters on a screen.

If your "teaser" site is full of half-hearted, dull puzzles with no payoff, it isn't worth the time for you or your fans.

All the rewards are very brief hints that the site is a Sin II promo.


We knew that within 5 minutes of the site going live. We don't need all these extra sleuthing to figure it out.
