[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Pe Ell] Stinkfist has done Puddleby a great harm.
[Pe Ell] Darshak Rebels had offered to fight the evil Darshak
[Pe Ell] And had set up base along the western shore.
[Pe Ell] Stinkfist broke our helpful alliance by attacking their members.
[Pe Ell] I was present. He admitted it.
[Pe Ell] Later on, he also encouraged the extermination of the Rebels as they helped us fight of the Darshak.
[Pe Ell] witness: Largo
[Haengemie] Thank you, Pe Ell.
[Haengemie] Largo, please approach the witness railing, to the Northeast of the jury box. You have 15 seconds.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Largo. You have been called to testify in this matter, please state the pertinent facts to the jury.
[Haengemie] Largo, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Largo] You're all well aware of today's events.
[Largo] You're all well aware of today's events -- Most, if not all of you were present.
[Largo] You saw the brutal Dar'shak assault on our fair town, and you saw the rebels come to our aid.
[Largo] This is a time of great peril, and, as it stands, these rebels are of great help to us.
[Largo] Not only are Stinkfist's actions cowardly and two-faced...
[Largo] They also present a grave threat to Puddlebean survival.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Largo] Instead of letting an ally stand with us, he has created a new enemy.
[Largo] Done.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Largo.
[Haengemie] Stinkfist, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Stinkfist] arr me master plans be very complicated full o ins an outs, its not tha first time i've lured our enemies to our town to spring my trap
[Stinkfist] not only do i not trust these rebels
[Stinkfist] rumored ta be lead by kiriel drakesblood BROTHER
[Stinkfist] but they also be vile slavin scum
[Stinkfist] i gave tha rebels a chance ta let me go earlier
[Stinkfist] they refused
[Stinkfist] i told them they would all die
[Stinkfist] they refused again

[Stinkfist] but it was all part of a grander plan
[Stinkfist] to lure out Captain Scabfoot
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Stinkfist] and destroy tha sad ol pirate once n for all
[Stinkfist] also you had fun
[Stinkfist] Stinkfist knows it
[Haengemie] Thank you, Stinkfist.
[Haengemie] Pe Ell, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Pe Ell] While Stinkfist may call them enemies, they have helped us quite a few times over the years.
[Pe Ell] What he calls "complicated plans" are simply him weasling out of what he knows was a terrible thing.
[Pe Ell] Yes. The Rebels held him captive. Why?
[Pe Ell] Because Stinkfist attacked them while they were trying to help!
[Pe Ell] Of course they fought back. He was, and is, traitorous scum.
[Pe Ell] Why must we make more enemies?
[Pe Ell] Why can't we have more allies against our foes?
[Pe Ell] Why? Because of people like Stinkfist.
[Pe Ell] Convict him of what he has done - turned away and slaughtered good people who tried to help us.
[Pe Ell] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Pe Ell.
[Haengemie] Stinkfist, you have 120 seconds to speak.
