[Bellafae] This court is now in session, The Honourable Judge Haengemie presiding.
[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Sentient] well...
[Sentient] Im a monster now... and I consider that kind of a problem...
[Sentient] I mean I was never that goodlooking but now Ilike the taste of human flesh...
[Sentient] it kind of bothers me
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Sentient] and well... thats all
[Haengemie] Thank you, Sentient
[Haengemie] Lilit, you have 90 seconds to speak.
[Lilit] As anyone here can tell, Sentient's "problem" was caused by the Wraith, not by me.
[Lilit] It's hardly a crime, and easy enough to undo.
[Lilit] It could have been quite handily avoided by him by not entering the cave in the first place...
[Lilit] I won't waste any more of your time. I am sorry you were taken from more important matters.
[Lilit] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Lilit
[Haengemie] Sentient, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Sentient] she draged me into the wraith!!!
[Sentient] Im new to these lands but in my homeland we burned people like her at the stake!!
[Sentient] I demand pain and suffering!!
[Sentient] plus shes just mean..
[Sentient] Sentient grumbles
[Sentient] shes killing people!!
[Sentient] i fell several times!!
[Sentient] how do i call a witness?
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Sentient] witness noivad
[Sentient] witness: noivad
[Haengemie] Thank you, Sentient
[Haengemie] Lilit, you have 120 seconds to speak.
[Lilit] How he came in to contact with the Wraith is hardly a matter for legal dispute!
[Lilit] And again, just like his tranformation, his other misfortunes would have been easy enough to avoid...
[Lilit] Simply leave the sanctuary and leave me to do my rites.
[Lilit] All was quite peaceful until Sentient and the rest of mobs came in.
[Lilit] You claim I bother you, but I was doing the rite long before you entered.
[Lilit] If anything, it was you and your friends who came to bother me!
[Lilit] The charge is that I turned you in to a monster...
[Lilit] ...I hardly think that's what happened, nor that it's a criminal matter in the first place.
[Lilit] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Lilit
