    Owen Uther Arrested for Murder!

    Owen turned over in his bed and listened to the sounds around his ranch house. In the next room, Owen could hear his wife Sara, putting on a warm kettle of coffee and bacon sizzling by the fire. Stretching lazily, Owen stole a few more moments of sleep. In the distance Owen heard his hunting dogs barking frantically. Instantly, Owen was fully awake and he quickly dressed and drew his new long sword.

    The sound of a fist banging against the door caused Sara to drop the hot bread she had just taken out of the oven, sending the pan clattering across the floor. “Open in the name of the Queen.”

    Owen charged into the kitchen passing his startled wife and unlatched the door “What is the meaning of this? What do you want?”

    “Owen Uther. I am Luke, an Officer of the Royal Britannian Guard. You are under arrest by order of Judge Locke and to be tried in the Yew Court for murder.”

    Owen frowned and dropped his long sword. “You will answer to Sheriff Brax and the Mayor for this outrage.”

    Luke said nothing in response as the Royal Guards led Owen to the Britannia Prison but smiled calmly. The Royal Britannian Guards had thoroughly investigated the disappearance of Jes and Judge Locke believed that Owen was likely the killer. Luke glanced to the small clearing of trees behind the ranch house that he knew hid a shallow grave. Justice would be done with or without Sherriff Brax and his cronies!

    Note: The Trial will be held on Tuesday, November 24, 2009 at 8:00 PM EST

    Two teams are needed to argue; one for the defense and one for the prosecution in Owen’s trial. Each team will be able to call and question witnesses and present evidence.

    If you would like to participate in the trial, please send an email to EM Eris or EM Nestor by Sunday, November 22, 2009.

    Please include if you would like to be on the defense or prosecution.

    Preference for participation will be given to those who submitted the most detailed investigative reports.

    Anyone else decided if they are going to be defense or prosecution yet? I thought I might like to be prosecution, but I was worried that too many people would pick that side... it wouldn't be much fun if that happened. I could be devil's advocate if need be, I think (defense). Then again, if we all decide to be prosecution and no-one is defense, then maybe that means he's guilty...

    So what do you all think?

    Who thinks Owen is guilty? Who thinks Owen is innocent?

    I'm leaning towards innocent despite the Social Order he obviously believes is coming. I think his wife is the driving force behind his change of character. I'm not satisfied that anyone has been murdered until they open that shallow grave and see what's in there.
