    The case against Lady Amandine has finally come to a head after her being in jail for two months. Dupre's charges against her are not in dispute, although the legal, moral and political implications are a matter of hot debate. This knights trial will be judged by a simple majority, NOT by unanimous vote.

    Trial Members:

    Judge: EM Tiberies

    Prosecutor #1: PLAYER
    Prosecutor #2: PLAYER
    Defender #1: PLAYER
    Defender #2: PLAYER
    Juror #1: PLAYER
    Juror #2: PLAYER
    Juror #3: PLAYER
    Juror #4: PLAYER
    Juror #5: PLAYER
    Juror #6: PLAYER
    Juror #7: PLAYER

    Lord Dupre will discuss the charges against the defendant before she is brought in.
    The Judge will address Lady Amandine.
    Prosecutor #1 will have 10 min to bring his/her case against the defendant, with an additional SMALL period of Q&A.
    Prosecutor #2 will have 10 min to bring his/her case against the defendant, with an additional SMALL period of Q&A.
    Defender #1 will then have 10 min to bring forth his/her defense for the defendant, with an additional SMALL period of Q&A.
    Defender #2 will then have 10 min to bring forth his/her defense for the defendant, with an additional SMALL period of Q&A.

    Once the case has been fully defended/prosecuted, each of the Jurors will have the opportunity to ask 3 questions each. These questions can be directed at Lady Amandine, the Judge, the Prosecutors, or to the Defense.

    The Judge will then have a small period of Q&A.

    Lady Amandine will speak.

    The Judge will ask each of the jurors the following Questions/Charges:

    #1: Did Lady Amandine commit unlawful murder, or was it a just killing under the protection of Martial Law?
    #2: Were the actions of Lady Amandine immoral, and unbecoming of an officer of the Knights of the Crux Ansata?
    #3: Have the actions of Lady Amandine damaged her standing within the Crux Ansata and in Britannia as a whole?
    #4: Is Lady Amandine still fit to lead the Knights of the Crux Ansata?

    Upon a not guilty verdict, the defendant will be dismissed and free to go.

    Upon a guilty verdict on one (or more) of the four charges/questions the each of the jurors will be given the option of one of these four punishments.

    #1: Death, public execution, entire Amandine estate given to Reddish's two brothers.
    #2: Retirement, permanent retirement and removal from the Knights of the Crux Ansata, and reparations paid to Reddish's brothers.
    #3: Censure, public condemnation of her actions by the Crux Ansata and possible demotion, and reparations paid to Reddish's brothers.
    #4: Reprimand, public apology and reparations paid to Reddish's brothers.

    Awesome! Sadly I can't guarantee I'd have 10 uninterrupted minutes to present any sort of case... :p

    Maybe I'll sign up for juror... We'll see.

    The 10 min limit is more of a maximum, so that this trial doesn't last 5 or 6 hours like trials have on previous shards.

    Tiberies and I are going to try our hardest to have this take no longer than an hour and a half, we will be very strict with time limits.

    a 5 hour trial would be no fun for anyone.

    The Judge will be my character Viscount Raymond of Minoc, whom you all met during the "The Awakening: Night of the Mutilator" event.

    He is uniquely qualified to judge this matter because he is an old knight with years of experience both at field-fighting (you may or may not have noticed him right in the thick of the battles at the mines against the minions of the Mutilator, doing damage right along with you all) and government/public administration, yet is also considered a man of the people and a champion of their cause. He also has a reputation for fairness and has pledged to, if Lady Danica is to be executed, volunteer to do the deed himself, even if he disagrees with the verdict.

    He follows the old ways and believes that the Knight who kills through others soon forgets what death is.

    Somewhere in the distance, I hear the bells ring. Darkness settles on the town, as the children start to sing.

    Somewhere in the near future I hear a courtroom Sing out in amazement as they are dazzled by a brilliant defense team

    The song goes something like this.... Here comes the Judge... here comes the judge... order in the courtroom ... here comes the judge

    I don't know... That depends on how good the prosecution is at convincing the jurors of her guilt.

    The court room is a big place, so those who switches back and forth in both clients at times, remember the enhanced client can zoom out, so you can sit in the back and see the entire courtroom. While classic has it's little window and more than likely all be bunched up in front.

    As Lady Amandine can attest too, much like murder, bribery is only a crime if you are caught.

    Just returned to UO. I have no idea what the current storyline is for the events, but I hope my application for juror gets accepted. It has been so long since I have been involved in some UO roleplaying! *crosses fingers*

    My friend, as tempting as that sounds. I have sworn to be as honest and an open heart in the trial as i can be. Gold is an item in this game which can be obtained so easily, trust and friendship is something hard to obtain once you betrayed so many. :)

    Real talk for a second, if anyone thinks I'm actually going to PAY people to vote a certain way, you are a moron. Sorry to be harsh, but I don't like being INSULTED in game.

    In fact, I doubt ANYNOE votes guilty. I mean really? Who is going to help get rid of our MAIN EM character? It just isnt going to happen, no matter how you want to roleplay it.
