Despite winning the first round, the good people of Moonlight find themselves quickly outnumbered by mafia goons. Crime rises again and the townspeople live in fear. The mafia returned to Moonlight with a vengeance, as if they had something to prove from being run out of town in the first place. The innocent townspeople only have one chance to survive and turn their town back into the peaceful 'burb it was meant to be: the FBI.

After a string of busts and seizures the Baritones are at their wit's end. The FBI and local police seem to be one step ahead of that at every turn. They must face the ugly truth: there must be rats among them...

In Baritones 2, you will be playing as the mafia. Your objective will be to find and whack (not The Whacker and the Walrus kind) all the informants among you. :devil:

Characters & Players:
(Apologies to anyone I couldn't include. I chose by people who had played games before, with a couple exceptions. It wasn't easy to take people off the list, but since this is a sequel, I wanted to be...well...elitist about it. Sorry. :blush: Please feel free to kick me if you ever meet me...just not in the megablocks please. :cry_sad: )

Ian looks very orange blue collar. He should be quite a departure from dear Ivan, the former KGB agent turned chef. I can work with this. :thumbup:

Ivan has informed me that Zabrina bears a great similarity to the lovely Florence, which is both confusing and slightly exciting for him. I'm more than a little disturbed by the whole thing, but certainly amused to see the return of Ms. Zepher in another round of Mafia fun.

Is that a dark blue or black helmet? I always build my sigfig for these things and need to confirm that for accuracy.

Thanks!

That was my first reaction, but comparing it to other helmets and black hats in the lineup, it looks dark blue to me. While it never officially came out in that colour, it does exist, and it would be just like Hinck to be sneaky and slip one in (I have one, fortunately). :grin:

In my analysis of the said hat, I must agree that the hat is black.

If one is to examine the picture as a whole it can have a blueish reflection, however when covering up the torso, ie the strong orange in the picture it is black. The opposite colour to orange is blue so your eye compensates the heavy orange to be blue.

Same thing that happens here...

Stare at the middle of this picture for two minutes then look away and stare at a blank wall...

Any Americans feeling patriotic now.

Some times all the information provided can be distracting, and just selecting little bits (like what you already know) can help, this applies to those playing mystery games as well. A good lesson to learn.

That said, photography can be miss leading. Dwell on this lesson you must! for it is saying something beyond what is seen.

Then the camera was tricked as well. If you take all the images and put them side by side in a good photo editor and sample the colours, that one is much more blue than the rest.

Therefore, we're either dealing with a dark blue hat, or bad photography. Now personally, I think Hinck is one of the best photographers around, so I'm not entirely sure I can agree with your backhanded comment concerning his talent. :look:

Even if it's black, I hope he says it's dark blue now, Mr. Wizard. :tongue:

I was not insulting the photographer, simply photography it self, as for the artist behind it. I agree one of the best I know.

I am no back seat mystery SOLVER, I am an admiring fan, if you must know. I have not said anything more than what Dragonator has.
