The Five.

Three probably knew that.

Worst possible Lorgian crime?

Hmmm...Breach of Contract. Murder and Theft don't seem to be that heavily-policed.

Wait wait wait... I think in these game there was a page with the revelation that 3 is actually speaking in pictures (it was seen through a camera or something), and that was understandable to Mr Smile? So technically he would have understood the answer?

Or my memories are completely wrong about this ...

@random: Three spoke in pictograms on this page, but Smile either didn't seem to understand that he was trying to speak or ignored him: http://www.neorice.com/hoh_tobi_1164

Oh, wait Lorg has laws? Was this Nero's law about burial that everyone hates because life is less valuable than any burial?

I would say this is actually a problem for Smile since this stops the whole thing from being an experiment or contest and turns it into Smile arbitrarily introducing rules to arrive at a preconceived outcome.

28207: zet - Friday, October 22 2021 - 3:33 AM

The worst crime in Lorg? Idk, altruism?

28208: Tor - Friday, October 22 2021 - 3:36 AM

I cant see whats a problem for Smile.
Or turn this away from being a experiment/contest.

There is a world of difference between a static buzz. And saying GO, Heroland, Alliance of Soverign Nations, Oceanic Cartel and Valiance.

If you cant answer in the correct language its tough luck. This whole game has been full of tasks where one contestant had an advantage over others. In the punishment game anyone with a normal human body were at a massive disadvantage.

Here in the second round of this game, anyone without a voice is at a equal disadvantage.

28209: Detective Caillou - Friday, October 22 2021 - 4:49 AM

Can I assume Justopea is part of the Alliance, considering the Beast Nation is the only independent actor trying to put an organized military together?

As for Lorgian crime, yeah, anything can be bought and sold here, so I'm assuming that Grand Larceny against the upper class is the most severe crime here.

Oh, I know!
It's operating a forklift without certification!

28212: TheMegax - Friday, October 22 2021 - 8:03 AM

Law? In Lorg? What do you think this is, a working society?!

28213: Theon - Friday, October 22 2021 - 8:05 AM

What’s the empire and why isn’t it in?

28214: TheMegax - Friday, October 22 2021 - 8:14 AM

Law? In Lorg?? What do you think this is, a functioning society?!

28215: Paintr - Friday, October 22 2021 - 8:29 AM

Probably something that damages the society of Lorg as a whole. Defiance to the government seems to simple though...

Hmm, interesting how Vallance receives such a prominent size and position on that diagram there, yet Shalhia calls it the -self-proclaimed- sacred holy land and lists it last, which might possibly imply she considers it the weakest of the 5 recognized world powers or that perhaps there are some negative feelings on her part towards it. Also it seems that there is possibly some manner of connection between Vallance and the AoSN, wonder what that might be...

@Detective Cailou
That seems like a reasonable assumption, although it could well also just be a fully independent nation that is considered too weak to be on of the big 5. Note that Shalhia says that the Beast Kingdom is the only -threat- to the balance of 5, not that it is the only independent actor doing so. And it would makes sense for no-one to take it seriously militarily speaking, given all we have seen of magic users and the GO's own paladin forces. Also we have already seen how strong Foxy can be and if she can be taken to be in anyway representative of the average strength of a beastman then it stands to reason that the nascent Beast Kingdom military could stand to be -far- stronger then Justopian military could ever hope to be, at least not without obtaining something of their own to bring them back to relevance(which was pretty much stated to be the main goal of the Veda project after all).

Most likely tattling

28220: Some guy - Friday, October 22 2021 - 2:58 PM

Sure... except Smile already knows Three can't answer the question as given. He's deliberately posing a question that cannot be answered by the person asked, then penalising them for failing to answer.

Knowingly asking somebody to perform a task they cannot perform isn't "disadvantage", it's sabotage.

28221: Sporf - Friday, October 22 2021 - 9:26 PM

I think Justopia is too isolated to be a part of any of these. And I'm guessing it's isolation is why it's not considered a threat either. I think it's an island nation possibly near one of the continents where elves live. It's been mentioned that it's protected by its navy and that the elves want some piece of land from them, implying Justopia drove them off it some time in the past.

28234: Tor - Saturday, October 23 2021 - 5:33 AM

No. Smile isnt giving 3 a task he knows it will fail. He is giving EVERYONE in round 2 the same type of task.

Thats not sabotage. Thats treating the contestants equally. Smile as such dont have any obligations to make special considerations towards a contestant who cant speak.

28235: random - Saturday, October 23 2021 - 5:46 AM

Thank you for the archive link, that was what I was thinking about

28237: Cluedrew - Saturday, October 23 2021 - 6:06 AM

@Tor & Some guy: This is starting to establish a trend as well where Smile refused to accept the translation of Three's hand signs. Smile seems to be either really ablest or is actually trying to influence the game and is using this as an excuse.

28242: Some guy - Saturday, October 23 2021 - 8:00 AM

Giving everybody the same task is NOT treating them equally because that ignores the inherent difference between them, especially when it is already a known factor that one of them cannot perform the task.

Equal doesn't mean the same.

28244: UnknownID - Saturday, October 23 2021 - 8:09 AM

Smiley never said the answer has to be in its language. Unfair to throw Three out :/

1, 2,
