I think both make a fair point.

No, no, he's right.

22350: Head Pablo - Monday, June 22 2020 - 12:42 AM

You promised...

22351: Mousio - Monday, June 22 2020 - 12:46 AM

Dun dun duuuun!

When the angel on your shoulder is just a palette swap of your devil.

22353: Chris E. - Monday, June 22 2020 - 1:31 AM

But what about the instructions from Pablo *not* to beat people up?

22354: Bisected - Monday, June 22 2020 - 2:24 AM

Burk has a consistent moral code.

22355: noname - Monday, June 22 2020 - 2:42 AM

Do it, Burk! Do eet!
It is a bit odd that Burk's shoulder Angel & Devil are both Devils, but I honestly cannot fault them being that in this particular situation: Sometimes you gotta be a little bad in order to do good.

Fucking finally.

I just re-read a good chunk of the Smile Foundation arc that’s been published in the Tobi archives, and most likely either the cop or lord infinite is Orange, or one of the “let her live team” is the host(non-exclusively) according to: http://neorice.com/hoh_tobi_1522#comments
Orange Smile said “for those not familiar with me yet, I an orange smile!”
this implies both that there is someone familiar with them in the team, and states that they are orange smile, which, if it follows the theme, is the MR. Smile dedicated to Orange, who would have been able to meet them in their vault.
as the Host, the Host would be familiar with Orange Smile already.
we already have story on Shalia, the Paladin as blue, so it is unlikely she is the Host.
it would be an incredibly odd coincidence for Three/Gray to be the Host, since they weren’t active until Tobi showed up.
Tobi/Red simply can’t be the Host without any shenanigans, as we’ve seen them since before they came to Lorg.
Green as Green can’t be Orange, but we don’t really know much about them, and they can be the Host.
Lord Infinite probably isn’t the Host, but can be Orange, unless I missed something.
we don’t know the cop’s colour or role, we don’t know what rule they have, and they aren’t in the story before they joined the game as far as I know, they could be anything, especially as the three saboteur slots haven’t all been filled.
either way, unless I’m overthinking things or we already know who Orange is, we know that Orange or the Host is on the “let her live team”.
the blue anchor gang member is Yellow, and there is two Blues, one of which is the girl who was spared.
did I miss anything?
is this a month late, and annoying to read in the middle of all your burkwatching?
was this entire thing invalidated, with us already knowing who Orange is?

Great work!
How about you compare what you know to our page on the wiki? You can make edits if you like.

22359: Centaur - Monday, June 22 2020 - 8:23 AM

Those two are basically shoulder demon and shoulder devil. "Beat him up for being annoying" is Evil Chaotic, and "Beat him up because he deserves it" is Evil Lawful.

22360: Tom - Monday, June 22 2020 - 8:34 AM

Is this Burk's go-to inner monologue?

Good God, the world is screwed.

22361: Anonymous - Monday, June 22 2020 - 9:00 AM

In the second panel, Goldman says "thinsgs" instead of "things".

22362: Brilliand - Monday, June 22 2020 - 5:25 PM

In all seriousness, Burk should go ask Pablo what to do.

Pablo would then invoke *diplomatic immunity*, something that I'm pretty sure Burk doesn't understand.

22363: Seb - Monday, June 22 2020 - 5:40 PM

I also vote to beat him up

I wanted this since his first appearance

22364: RandomGuy - Monday, June 22 2020 - 7:55 PM

Burk been itching to fight!
Is he at his limit of keeping his promise?!

22365: Greatsword - Monday, June 22 2020 - 8:47 PM

I'd have thought it'd be more like Chaotic evil/ Chaotic Good, or somewhere in between. Burk is just a Chaotic force I think.

22366: Lord Incaros - Monday, June 22 2020 - 11:12 PM

Those aren't shoulder devils. They don't have pitch forks, wings, or tails. They are shoulder BULLS. Or shoulder minotaurs. And to be fair, since they can't go get Pablo combat might be the only way out of this without COMPLETELY blowing their cover. He thinks Burk is there after his personal misdeeds, which may or may not be related to Pablos mission.

@Leo it appears the Apples To Oranges Profit Game is not in the wiki, and I do not feel myself up to the task of describing it in sufficient detail.
thanks for the color chart, though.
as a correction to my previous statement on whether Three can be the Host, according to what I re-read of the beginning of Lorg, it is unclear as to what Three was doing before Tobi showed up.
as Yellow Smile did not respond to the enquiries of Three, and Three made the enquiries using their silent text boxes, it is unlikely that Three and the Smile Foundation were in touch prior.
if they were not in touch, it is unlikely for Three to be the Host.
