Clera, reporting.

[Haengemie] <standard pre-trial court briefing>
[Gurgi] We all know at least some of the particular crimes this woman has committed.
[Gurgi] But i am not here to banter trivial details with this servant of the Undine.
[Gurgi] I am not here to give her another chance to fill our ears with lies. We have all heard enough of those.
[Gurgi] Most of you have come to recognize the lies and half truths she weaves with her forked tongue.
[Gurgi] Her actions and the lies she tells give us all the evidence we need to know that she is a servant of the Undine.
[Gurgi] The undine, puddleby's most deadly enemy,...
[Gurgi] an enemy that very nearly wiped us completely off the face of the earth not long ago,...
[Gurgi] an enemy that, with her help, continues to plot our destruction.
[Gurgi] She is herself perhaps our most dangerous enemy.
[Gurgi] For what greater evil can there be, than that which cloaks itself in the guise of good?
[Gurgi] To allow such a creature free access to our services and protection is outrageous!
[Gurgi] To allow her to continue to poison our society with the evil lies of the undine is foolish!
[Gurgi] Let her seek the protection of her masters if they will have her.
[Gurgi] If she loves her Goddess of the undine...
[Gurgi] If she loves the undine she calls her children so much...
[Gurgi] Ler her go live with them in the dark cave she calls her shrine.
[Gurgi] But i will not have this deadly enemy sitting comfortably in our midst as she plots our demise.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Gurgi] Bannish her from our Puddleby forever!
[Gurgi] Let us not harbour our enemies within our own walls.
[Gurgi] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Gurgi
[Haengemie] Lilit, you have 90 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Lilit] I am an enemy of only the Darshak.
[Lilit] The work I do is for those ends, as many of my friends and supporters know.
[Lilit] Gurgi's efforts are simple persecution.
[Lilit] His accusations are vague and wide...
[Lilit] There is no crime being discussed here.
[Lilit] There is no evidence.
[Lilit] Only his assertions that I am evil.
[Haengemie] 10 seconds remaining, Please finish up, or say "done"...
[Lilit] That is the worst sort of witch hunt.
[Lilit] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Lilit
[Haengemie] Gurgi, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Gurgi] even now the worm seeks to squirm and wiggle its way out of this.
[Gurgi] Enough i say. Her actions speak clearly enough
[Gurgi] she calls the undine her children
[Gurgi] she uses them against us and protects waht she calls there "shrine"
[Gurgi] let her live with her friends
[Gurgi] she has no place here in puddleby
[Gurgi] would we allow a Greater Wraith to live with us?
[Gurgi] it is equivalent
[Gurgi] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Gurgi
[Haengemie] Lilit, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Lilit] If you listen to this halfling...
[Lilit] If you do what he says...
[Lilit] You will be bringing all the injustice of the mainland here!
[Lilit] Do we want to be like the Emperor, throwing out all we do not understand?
[Lilit] Should we cave into ignorance and fear?
[Lilit] This is what the Darshak want!
[Lilit] I want my Chapterhouse on this island to flourish!
[Lilit] I do not want to destroy anything here!
[Lilit] My efforts to grow the Nox Sorora are proof of this intent.
[Lilit] I ask now for Sutai to call upon you to open your minds, and end this persecution...
[Lilit] witness: Sutai
[Haengemie] Thank you, Lilit
[Haengemie] Sutai, please approach the witness railing, to the Northeast of the jury box. You have 15 seconds.
[Haengemie] Thank you, Sutai. You have been called to testify in this matter, please state the pertinent facts to the jury.
[Haengemie] Sutai, you have 120 seconds to speak, unless the jury deems your testimony irrelevant.
[Sutai] uh. okay..
[Sutai] purasuma.. I know you is scared of Ririt just because she different
[Sutai] She use a method with undine that is hard to trust..
[Sutai] but has she ever attacked town with undine?
[Sutai] Has anyone notice that they onry attack when we bother them in cave?
[Sutai] Maybe she is helping us.. try and think of that..
[Sutai] and...
[Sutai] done
[Haengemie] Thank you, Sutai

[Haengemie] Lilit this court finds you guilty, as accused.
[Haengemie] <standard jury sentence briefing>
[Haengemie] Jury, please note: one prior conviction in the past year.
[Haengemie] Jurors, you should take Lilit's record into account when deciding what sentence to recommend.

  Total recommended jail time: 280 min
  Total recommended fine: 1500c
  Total jurors: 7
  Avg recommended jail/fine: 40 min/214c

[Haengemie] Because of outstanding fines still owed from previous convictions...
[Haengemie] I'm going add 10 minutes to the sentence.
[Haengemie] Lilit, you are hereby sentenced to spend 50 minutes in the Puddleby jail,
[Haengemie] and fined 214 coins.
[Haengemie] As you cannot afford to pay your fine, the clerk calculates the balance (136c) as additional jail-time of 19 minutes.
