    The accusation: While Moonglow was under quarantine for the plaque, Governor Gooch proceeded to steal a boat and sail away to the island of Nujel’m thus spreading the plague among the citizens. This action was witnessed by many including the person whose boat was stolen and by our own traveling minstrel Troubadour. King Blackthorn put these accusations before […]

    I think I remember about reporting about rabids in Nujelm....amongst my favorite cities. That being said, I'd suggest that we just blow off the whole thing and get on with more pertinent business. Just my thoughts.

    Before Gooch is tried and convicted here, should we not hear all the evidence against him - or has this become a trial by consensus with no opportunity for the accused to speak?
    For one, I'd like to hear his side of the story....

    Plus I'm thinking about putting gm snooping on my thief to give the old coot a taste of his own medicine while he's busy defending himself... :cool:

    I'm sorry, but from the start, I did not like this event. Freedom to do what you want, is a big part of playing Siege Perilous. Someone telling, you are trapped on an island for a month and will get punished if you leave is just not right for Siege.
    IMO, the whole event failed badly on Siege and for many of us, it did not add any good to the game.
    Now I don't know if Gooch agree to this kind of forced RP. If he do, I back off, else I would just stop this madness.

    I like the Governor and City stuff as long it is good for out shard but if a thief can't steal a boat, or a char can't leave an island without it goes to a trial, someone are trying to make Siege to Trammel.
    If a Governor do a bad job, he won't get voted in next time.

    I play Siege because I don't want the system to tell me how to play the game and where I can go. Sometimes we need to decide if something is good for Siege or it goes against what Siege stand for.

    I can't be there at that time for the Court of Truth as it is 4:30 am my time but doubt I would had been there anyway as I feel this is not what we need on Siege.

    Sorry, but that's how I feel

    I don't see it, but I'm only an outlaws, who do not expect anything good coming from a king :)

    Naeh, Gooch is also an Governor, an Outlaws would not care that much for a Governor.

    Good luck with the trial. I hope it goes smoothly and justice prevails. Sorry I can't attend but it is the middle of the night for me.

    After thinking about it I retract my previous comments. I did run Nujelm at that time and never saw anything rabid. My bum leg I think is causing brain cramps.
