I sat in the spectators section quietly as others filed in and found their seats, awaiting the long awaited trial of Kendrick Morrow, the accused Magiacian. More then expected showed for the trial and was surprised by the interest that surrounded this case. Nine (9) jurors were selcected to judge the accused, selected by Commander Foxx, Judge and Prosecuter. The trial started off with only 4 witnesses stating their case and the prosecution was preparing for the jury's verdict. After approximately 2 hours, the jurors retired to the deliberation room to come up with the final verdict of Guilty or Not Guilty. A half hour went by and the jurors returned to the jurors box. The jury's foreman was called forward to give the decision of the 9 jurors. 7 of the 9 jurors found Kendrick Morrow "Not Guily". This put the audience into a state of shock. Some were for the Accused being innocent, others yelled guilty!!. The court house was abuzz with heavy discussions about the trial and alot of Boo's. The jurors were excused from their appointment and most left without saying a word, not discussing the case or the verdict. The jurors were both praised at their decsion and boo'd for their decision. I watched as the jurors departed, hoping to get an interview with one of them. I noticed that there was one juror who had a very concerned look on his face as he exited the court house doors. I followed him out of the court house as he began walking down the streets of Trinsic. I finally caught up with him and asked if he was ok. He said "No". "Can I ask you your name sir". He replied by saying his name was Zanku, Mayor of Nidaros. "Well, aren't you happy that you sent an accused man free?" I asked. "Well, you saw how the spectators responded when the verdict came down that we had voted fairly that Kendrick Morrow was innocent?". "Yes", I replied. " Well, I just received word that the Nidaros Townhall & Tavern was attacked by angery spectators who were at the trial and that threats for my life and possibly the lives of the other jurors were heard being yelled around the town". He said looking directly at me. "I was warned that if I show my face or attempt to return to the TownHall, I would be dealt with in a very un-fashionable way". "So you see, even though we could only go on the evidence presented at the trial, finding Morrow Not Guilty has put lives at stake." I watched as he hung his head low, as if looking for something on the ground. " For the time being, I must find refuge until I can figure out how to deal with this. All I know is that I can not return to the Townhall at this time and that saddens me". I watched as Zanku looked over his shoulder and around the immediate area, as if expecting someone. Who knew that some of the spectators at the trial fealt this unhappy about the verdict that was passed down. "Where will you go?" I asked. " To a friends house for now and that disclosure is not for publication", he said in a stern voice. "any idea who might be involved with this act?" I asked. "I have my suspicions", zanku replied. On saying that, Zanku zipped around the corner and was gone before I could ask him any more questions. This I must follow up on. Lives are in danger as well as the residence of a town. Following this story on Zanku and the other Jurors the next day, I received word that an Emissary of Nidaros, Judge, attended the Paxlair meeting to represent Mayor Zanku and his innocence. Judge was instructed to forward a message to Mayor Zanku, from the PaxLair Statehood Govenor, Winfield, that Zanku was to be considered for examination to prove sanity. It was being considered wether or not 'Bribery' was involved and wether or not Zanku and the other Jurors in some way had any "Benefits" coming by claiming Morrow was innocent. Zanku was instructed to go to the Shrine of Honesty with an escort. There he was to meditate and record thoughts on the case. He was then instructed to report these thoughts in written form to the Govenor in one week. What is to become of this? Is the Mayoral seat of Nidaros on the line? Will he and others ever be able to return to the peaceful settlement of Nidaros? Was the "Not Guilty" verdict of Kendrick Morrow fealt in such a way as to terrorize a town or towns and threaten Lives of those peers that sent an accused crimmanal free. This is a story I will definately follow up on in order to let the public know of its outcome and wether Zanku will have the courage to show his face around Sosaria. Stay toon'd and comments are welcomed on this recent trial of the year and its after effects.
