I Fought the Law

<TesKin> Branko walks into the briefing room.
<WetBeard> Pierre arrives at breifing.
<TeslaTornado> Kevin migrates from the gun range to the briefing room.
<Soulless> Elanor shows up.
<gumbal1> A tired looking women is present in the briefing room. "Thank you for coming in on such short notice."
<TesKin> Branko nods.
<WetBeard> Pierre looks around, sees Kevin, and suddenly feels soreness in his shoulder
<gumbal1> "I'll get to the point. There has been a simultaeneous disturbance of apparent supernatural origin in both maintenance and the chapel. Security has been sent to deal with the maintenance disruption, so we're rather short on them at the moment."
<TeslaTornado> Kevin looks around, sees Pierre, and scowls. He looks to the briefing agent.
<gumbal1> "As such, we've decided to ask a task force to deal with this matter."
<WetBeard> Pierre frowns.
<TeslaTornado> "Supernatural how?"
<TesKin> Branko takes out a small notebook and writes Supernatural down.
<Soulless> "…"
<gumbal1> "Three entities of apparent supernatural origins have converted the chapel intoa courthouse of sorts, and they appear to be putting various staff on trial."
<TeslaTornado> "Odd."
<Soulless> Elanor rubs her pendant a bit.
<Soulless> "Alright."
<TesKin> "Have they been confirmed as hostile?"
<gumbal1> "In a sense. Three members of staff have hadd limbs amputated, and once has been executed."
<WetBeard> Pierre checks his pistol, making sure it's loaded.
<gumbal1> "These have all followed guilty verdicts."
<TeslaTornado> "And the nature of the trials?"
<TesKin> Branko nods, checking his revolvers.
<TeslaTornado> "What have the staff members been accused of?"
<gumbal1> "Alien. I'm not sure their justice system is consistent."
<TeslaTornado> "So there's no connection between the convictions."
<gumbal1> "Heresy, mostly in consorting with an 'Indigo Trio'."
Nov 28 13:16:02 <TeslaTornado> 4df+8 (Academics + Mind Palace) Indigo Trio?
Nov 28 13:16:02 <Glacon> TeslaTornado: (Academics + Mind Palace) Indigo Trio?: 8 (4df+8=-, 0, +, 0)
Nov 28 13:16:39 <gumbal1> The Stranger, the Sinner, and the Boar. Probably connected to that Indigo phone in containment that keeps ringing.
Nov 28 13:17:07 <Soulless> "Let's get ready, then. The faster I'm there the faster I can get a feel for the place."
Nov 28 13:17:43 <TeslaTornado> Kevin nods. "Don't openly wear firearms."
Nov 28 13:17:52 <TeslaTornado> "At the very least, I'd counsel against it."
Nov 28 13:17:57 <TesKin> "Uh."
Nov 28 13:18:11 <TesKin> Branko is a walking armory, with a shotgun, 2 revolvers and a bastard sword strapped to his back.
Nov 28 13:18:21 <gumbal1> "You may leave for the chapel at any time."
Nov 28 13:18:29 <WetBeard> "Welp…" Pierre shuffles ~Hopefully won't get shot this time 'round~
Nov 28 13:18:35 <TeslaTornado> "We don't understand their laws, approaching with weapons drawn could result in an immediate conviction of heresy."
Nov 28 13:18:50 <gumbal1> "Handle this situation however you wish."
Nov 28 13:18:56 <TeslaTornado> "And -" looking at Pierre specifically - "Be wary of psychological hazards."
Nov 28 13:18:56 <Soulless> Elanor looks at Branko like :|.
Nov 28 13:19:49 <TesKin> Branko rolls his shoulders and unhooks his sword belt, setting it in the corner.
Nov 28 13:20:33 <WetBeard> Pierre looks at Kevin "I'll try."
Nov 28 13:21:15 <TesKin> "Let's get going then."
Nov 28 13:21:23 <TeslaTornado> Kevin unhooks his own sword belt and transfers his pistol to a concealed holster on the backside of his pants-belt.
Nov 28 13:22:15 <WetBeard> Pierre does his best to make sure his gun isn't in view,
Nov 28 13:22:18 <Soulless> Elanor keeps her pistol in her bag that's filld with a bunch of other shit.
Nov 28 13:22:18 <TeslaTornado> "Let's go."
Nov 28 13:22:19 <TesKin> Branko unbuttons the upper part of his uniform and moves his gunbelts inside the jumpsuit.
Nov 28 13:22:42 <TesKin> Branko nods. "Da."
Nov 28 13:22:50 * ShotgunFiend (moc.duolccri.gnilae.38478F97-CRInys|19282diu#moc.duolccri.gnilae.38478F97-CRInys|19282diu) has left #homeimprovement
Nov 28 13:23:10 <TesKin> Branko heads out of the briefing room, heading towards the chapel.
Nov 28 13:24:28 <gumbal1> Two guards oversee the door to the chapel.
Nov 28 13:24:39 <gumbal1> "Psi-7?
Nov 28 13:24:43 <TesKin> Branko nods.
Nov 28 13:24:45 <TesKin> "Da."
Nov 28 13:24:56 <TeslaTornado> "Of course."
Nov 28 13:25:33 <gumbal1> They open the doors. Pause for description.
Nov 28 13:30:31 <gumbal1> A makeshift courthouse this is. Sloppily built seats for the judge, jury, and defendants are present in the chappel. Sitting in the jury seats are what appears to be a mix of translucent orange hmanoids and odd humanoids in psuedo-Catholic wear. Sitting in the judging seat are three entities. One appers to be a normal human, dressed like any other preacher one might find. Another appears to be a humanoid in a glittery pink suit, with
Nov 28 13:30:31 <gumbal1> bandages covering all of its skin. The last is a 5' humanoid wearing ornate robes and a hooded mask, holding a burnt scepter. In the defendant 's seat is a man some members of Psi-7 may know as Nurse Walker.
Nov 28 13:31:05 <TeslaTornado> Kevin strides in like he owns the place.
Nov 28 13:31:16 <Soulless> Can Elanor try to discern the energies of the place?
Nov 28 13:31:19 <TesKin> Branko follows after, glaring at everything in the room.
Nov 28 13:31:25 <gumbal1> She can.
Nov 28 13:31:33 <TeslaTornado> 4df+4 (Wards)
Nov 28 13:31:34 <Glacon> TeslaTornado: (Wards): 2 (4df+4=0, 0, -, -)
Nov 28 13:31:57 <Soulless> 4sd+3 Elanor settles down and tries to discern the nature of the magic here, how it feels, what it may remind her of.
Nov 28 13:31:59 <WetBeard> Pierre makes sure to go in last.
Nov 28 13:32:07 <gumbal1> The supposed preacher rises. "Visitors! Welcome! You are just in time for the trial of Tate Montgomery Walker!"
Nov 28 13:32:08 <Soulless> 4df+3 Elanor settles down and tries to discern the nature of the magic here, how it feels, what it may remind her of.
Nov 28 13:32:08 <Glacon> Soulless: Elanor settles down and tries to discern the nature of the magic here, how it feels, what it may remind her of.: 4 (4df+3=0, 0, 0, +)
Nov 28 13:32:49 <gumbal1> Kevin, this energy feels like energy you may have detected working with demons, but much more…organized?
Nov 28 13:33:05 <WetBeard> Pierre is frowning as he looks around, he's interested.
Nov 28 13:33:08 <TeslaTornado> "Very ordered energy, demonic in nature…"
Nov 28 13:33:21 <TesKin> Branko grunts. "That is odd for demons, da?"
Nov 28 13:33:32 <gumbal1> Elanor, the magic appears to have a relativly human touch to it. The color gray seems to be significant.
Nov 28 13:33:33 <TeslaTornado> "Not all demons."
Nov 28 13:33:43 <WetBeard> "Thought Demons were hive minded…"
Nov 28 13:34:08 <TesKin> "Well, how do we deal with this?"
Nov 28 13:34:22 <Soulless> "Human. Grey."
Nov 28 13:34:39 <gumbal1> Nurse Walker appears to have fallen asleep at his own trial.
Nov 28 13:35:00 <Soulless> She nods to the preacher.
Nov 28 13:35:06 <TeslaTornado> Kevin is impressed at Nurse Walker.
Nov 28 13:35:14 <WetBeard> Pierre looks over "Hm…"
Nov 28 13:35:17 <TesKin> Branko looks at Kevin. "Any plans?"
Nov 28 13:35:42 <WetBeard> "Guns blazing doesn't sound like a good one."
Nov 28 13:35:48 <gumbal1> "We shall begin immediatly! Blessed Anita, what is our first order of business?"
Nov 28 13:36:06 <TeslaTornado> "Wait, for the moment. Don't engage."
Nov 28 13:36:17 <TeslaTornado> "They're presumably a great deal more powerful than they look."
Nov 28 13:36:29 <WetBeard> "Understood."
Nov 28 13:37:21 <TesKin> Branko grunts. Guns blazing is what he does best.
Nov 28 13:37:42 <gumbal1> One of the humanoids in the jury, one that vaguelly resembles a bishop, does a shush motion directed at Psi-7.
Nov 28 13:38:01 <TeslaTornado> Kevin looks to the bishop guy and inclines his chin.
Nov 28 13:38:32 <WetBeard> Pierre falls silent, best not to anger demons.
Nov 28 13:38:41 <Soulless> Elanor looksto the others and shakes her head. "Human. Grey."
Nov 28 13:38:48 <gumbal1> The hooded humanoid in the judge panel stands. "We shall first be calling witnesses. Would any of our new guests want to participate?" This voice is distinctly female.
Nov 28 13:38:57 <Soulless> She then starts looking in her bag for grey stuff.
Nov 28 13:39:30 <WetBeard> Pierre refuses to volunteer.
Nov 28 13:39:41 <TeslaTornado> Kevin looks to the hooded one. "May we hear the charges?"
Nov 28 13:40:24 <gumbal1> "The charges are General Heresy, Greater Heresy, Capital Heresy, Heresy Under Influence, Casual Heresy, and Littering."
Nov 28 13:40:53 <TeslaTornado> "Present the evidence for these charges, please."
Nov 28 13:40:59 <WetBeard> Pierre tilts his head "Littering…?"
Nov 28 13:42:47 <gumbal1> The preacher in the judge panel slams his gavel. Immediatly, a sort of dark orb appears, and an Indigo phone materializes onto the floor, along with a candy wrapper.
Nov 28 13:43:07 <WetBeard> "Oh…"
Nov 28 13:44:02 <gumbal1> The preacher smiles. "Thank you, Shadelurker."
Nov 28 13:44:07 <TeslaTornado> Kevin :|s.
Nov 28 13:44:21 <TeslaTornado> "Objection on the grounds that the majority of Site-19 staff are unfamiliar with the laws of the Indigo Court."
Nov 28 13:45:22 <gumbal1> "Denied. Ignorance of politics is no excuse."
Nov 28 13:45:26 <Soulless> She narrows her gaze at the phone, then settles down.
Nov 28 13:46:04 <TeslaTornado> Kevin crosses his arms. "How are we supposed to be aware of something that had never revealed its existence to us?"
Nov 28 13:47:14 <Soulless> "What is the proposed punishment?"
Nov 28 13:48:12 <gumbal1> The bandaged humanoid sighs, and gets out a pair of glass. "In the month of July, agents Maillard and Tande made a deal with the Stranger to provide mutual help against a common enemy." He sounds bored. "Did you not read the terms and conditions?"
Nov 28 13:48:45 <TeslaTornado> "Agent Maillard is illiterate, and presently discharged on psychological leave."
Nov 28 13:48:47 <gumbal1> The preachers seems to almost visibly panic at Elanor's inquiry. "W-well, we'll get to that!"
Nov 28 13:48:55 <Soulless> "…"
Nov 28 13:49:05 <WetBeard> "May you provide us with the Terms and Conditions?"
Nov 28 13:49:54 <TeslaTornado> Kevin turns and fixes Pierre with a Look.
Nov 28 13:50:04 <gumbal1> The bandaged humanoid sighs, and materializes a book that rivals La Lror in size. The book lands on the floor, towards a page musing on the legality of potato batteries in warfare.
Nov 28 13:50:37 <WetBeard> Pierre decides to keep his mouth shut for a bit.
Nov 28 13:51:33 <gumbal1> "Now, who volunteers as a witness?"
Nov 28 13:51:53 <Soulless> Elanor cocks her head to the right and pulls out some gemstones, some sage, and silver king wormwood. Just in case, though she's unsure what to do with these grey stones and plants.
Nov 28 13:51:58 <TeslaTornado> Kevin, who has been in a desert for the last several months, looks around.
Nov 28 13:52:07 <TesKin> Branko steps forward. "I will."
Nov 28 13:52:11 <WetBeard> Pierre sighs,
Nov 28 13:52:27 <gumbal1> The preacher slams his gavel, and a rickety chair appears. "Sit."
Nov 28 13:52:41 <TesKin> Branko sits.
Nov 28 13:52:56 <WetBeard> Pierre looks at Branko with an honest smile "Best of luck."
Nov 28 13:53:02 <Soulless> Elanor watches, unsure.
Nov 28 13:54:04 <gumbal1> "Now," The preacher adjusts his glasses. "Where were you on the night of July 29th of 1955?"
Nov 28 13:54:21 <WetBeard> Pierre frowns ~That's yet to happen…~
Nov 28 13:54:53 <TesKin> Branko chuckles. "Taking care of my daughter before she went to bed."
Nov 28 13:56:45 <gumbal1> "Alright." The preacher adjusts his glasses again. "Did you or did you not notice Nurse Walker drunkenly stumble into containment and attempt to order a pizza using the Indigo Phone?"
Nov 28 13:57:17 * WetBeard has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Nov 28 13:57:43 <TesKin> Branko shrugs. "No. I was not on patroll that night."

Nov 28 13:59:09 <gumbal1> "Aha!" The preacher bangs his gavel. "That's a Neglectful Heresy charge if I've every seen one!" He bangs his gavel again, and Branko's chair falls apart. "Next witness!"
Nov 28 13:59:25 <TeslaTornado> Kevin looks around again.
Nov 28 13:59:42 <gumbal1> The orange humanoids appear to be cheering.
Nov 28 13:59:44 <WetBeard> Pierre looks at Kevin "Wait what."
Nov 28 14:00:07 <TeslaTornado> "I have no idea what's going on. I haven't been here in five months."
Nov 28 14:00:09 <TesKin> Branko stands. "Charge on who."
Nov 28 14:00:16 <TesKin> He's glaring at the judges.
Nov 28 14:00:31 <TeslaTornado> ~Back when this Site was actually capable of maintaining internal security~
Nov 28 14:01:08 <gumbal1> "Let it be known that Branko Silvenski is next in the judging que! Please come back after the next 23 defendants are judged. You may leave."
Nov 28 14:01:48 <Soulless> "What is the punishment for a neglectful heresy charge?"
Nov 28 14:02:07 * WetBeard has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Nov 28 14:02:11 <gumbal1> "A fine of 20 american dollars."
Nov 28 14:02:53 <gumbal1> Something rings. "Oh my, out of time already! Break!"
Nov 28 14:03:06 <Soulless> She shakes her head again.
Nov 28 14:03:33 <TeslaTornado> Kevin blinks.
Nov 28 14:03:45 <gumbal1> "We shall reconvene in a few minutes to decide the fate of the defendant. Until then,"

Nov 28 14:04:18 <gumbal1> Every entity in the room dissappears, with the exception of the bandaged humanoid in the pink suit.
Nov 28 14:04:36 <Soulless> Elanor aproaches the bandaged humanoid.
Nov 28 14:04:36 <gumbal1> Kevin gets pretty good at Indigo law.
Nov 28 14:05:43 <Soulless> "Hello?"
Nov 28 14:05:46 <gumbal1> The bandaged humanoid sighs, and looks up. "Yes?" They seem to have a Louisiana-eque accent.
Nov 28 14:06:23 <Soulless> "You alright?"
Nov 28 14:06:25 <TeslaTornado> Kevin becomes a bit more confident in the situation.
Nov 28 14:06:59 <gumbal1> "No. This entire court is a bloody sham. Oh Mannus, what have we gotten ourselves into…"
Nov 28 14:07:19 <Soulless> "It's okay. We can fix it"
Nov 28 14:08:25 <gumbal1> "How? No one can stop the Preacher once he gets his mind on something, and Blessed Anita is an absolute stickler for authority."
Nov 28 14:09:00 <Soulless> "There is a human element to this. Where there is human there is flaw."
Nov 28 14:09:23 <Soulless> "Could you tell me if the color grey means anything to this court?"
Nov 28 14:09:33 <Soulless> "Also, can you tell me more about the Preacher and the Blessed Anita?"
Nov 28 14:10:48 <gumbal1> The humanoid seems to pause. "We are archangels, serving the Gray God Mannus, progenitor of humanity. The Preacher and Blessed Anita head their own respective churches of worship towards them."
Nov 28 14:12:23 <gumbal1> "We all thought that if we enlisted Shadelurker in our crusade, we may please our Lord. But it's all to waste now…"
Nov 28 14:13:01 <Soulless> "Hm. Who is Shadelurker?"
Nov 28 14:13:12 <TeslaTornado> 4df+8 (Academics + MP) Kevin siphons these names and terms through his own mental database
Nov 28 14:13:12 <Glacon> TeslaTornado: (Academics + MP) Kevin siphons these names and terms through his own mental database: 10 (4df+8=+, -, +, +)
Nov 28 14:13:50 <Soulless> "Also, perhaps we can appeal to the Gray God Mannus?" Can Elanor check if she knows anything about it?
Nov 28 14:14:06 <gumbal1> "The traiterous Archdemon serving no one. They lurk in the Shade, and can transport things in and out of it."
Nov 28 14:14:41 <gumbal1> Kevin, it all checks out. This archangel here is probably named 'Bandages'.
Nov 28 14:15:03 <TeslaTornado> He grumbles, and lights a cigarette.
Nov 28 14:15:10 <gumbal1> "Well, perhaps we could make a covenant with your Foundation as an apology."
Nov 28 14:15:15 <TesKin> Branko follows suit, lighting one as well.
Nov 28 14:15:47 <Soulless> "Would that help?"
Nov 28 14:15:47 <gumbal1> "Oh, what's the use! You all likely despise us at the moment."
Nov 28 14:16:00 <TeslaTornado> "No, not really."
Nov 28 14:16:23 <gumbal1> "Perhaps if you accept it, it may, although I don't suppsoe you really trust us…"
Nov 28 14:16:29 <Soulless> 4df+11 Elanor tries to figure out who/what the Gray God Mannus is, and if she could possibly appeal to this god to stop this madness.
Nov 28 14:16:30 <Glacon> Soulless: Elanor tries to figure out who/what the Gray God Mannus is, and if she could possibly appeal to this god to stop this madness.: 12 (4df+11=+, 0, +, -)
Nov 28 14:16:38 <TeslaTornado> "We're moderately annoyed that we're being subjected to a sham trial wherein your fellow archangels are maiming and executing our personnel, but."
Nov 28 14:16:51 <TeslaTornado> "Should you stop doing that I'm sure we can come to some sort of satisfactory arrangement."
Nov 28 14:18:40 <gumbal1> Elanor, Mannus is said to appear in the mythology of Germanic tribes as the Progenitor of humanity, although that might have been based on Manu, a similar figure in Hinduism.
Nov 28 14:19:25 <gumbal1> "Well, perhaps…"

Nov 28 14:21:30 <TeslaTornado> "I've spent this whole conversation reading your legal codexes."
Nov 28 14:21:34 <TeslaTornado> codices**
Nov 28 14:21:52 <gumbal1> "To be fair, we mostly stole those from the Indigo Court."
Nov 28 14:22:09 <gumbal1> "They aren't technically 'ours'."
Nov 28 14:22:17 <gumbal1> "Sorry to have misled you."
Nov 28 14:23:35 <gumbal1> Every other entity rematerializes in the courtroom.
Nov 28 14:23:47 <Soulless> "The Grey God Mannus is the progenitor of humans."
Nov 28 14:24:04 <Soulless> "Surely you can use that to your advantage, Kevin. Have some of these gemstones. They carry his color."
Nov 28 14:24:22 <gumbal1> "You are correct! And plese don't stand so close, dear." Says Anita.
Nov 28 14:24:50 <Soulless> She offers Kevin moonstone and Hematite.
Nov 28 14:24:54 <gumbal1> "That itself could carry a Spacial Heresy charge."
Nov 28 14:25:01 <TeslaTornado> Kevin accepts it.
Nov 28 14:25:30 <Soulless> She looks to Anita and steps just one step back, casual and defiant.
Nov 28 14:25:39 <gumbal1> "Thank you."
Nov 28 14:26:29 <gumbal1> "By the Grace of Mannus, may our next witness step forward?"
Nov 28 14:27:27 <TeslaTornado> "Actually, there's a codicil to a spacial heresy charge that specifies, in the event of an apparition, the suspect can plead innocent by unawareness of the apparating party."
Nov 28 14:27:35 <TeslaTornado> "Miss Thorne is immune."
Nov 28 14:28:16 <gumbal1> The Preacher blinks. Anita may have blinked as well, but her mask covers her face. "…well."
Nov 28 14:28:40 <TeslaTornado> Kevin folds his hands behind his back.
Nov 28 14:28:57 <gumbal1> "That is…true, yes."
Nov 28 14:29:17 <gumbal1> Anita pulls out and flips through her own copy.
Nov 28 14:29:28 <TeslaTornado> He raises an eyebrow, waiting.
Nov 28 14:29:44 <gumbal1> "Anyways, let us continue with the trial."
Nov 28 14:29:50 <TeslaTornado> "Of course."
Nov 28 14:31:23 <gumbal1> The preacher bangs his gavel, and another witness chair appeats, along with what appears to be a surprised Agent Rodman sitting in it.
Nov 28 14:31:43 <TeslaTornado> Kevin glances over at Rodman. "Hold it."
Nov 28 14:31:56 <gumbal1> "What is it now?"

Nov 28 14:34:46 <gumbal1> Bandages nods. "Agent Rodman, proceed to tell us of the night of June 29th of 1955."

Nov 28 14:37:01 <gumbal1> The Preacher looks expectantly for a few seconds, before suddenly getting angry. "What!? Just a nod?! Nothing?!"
Nov 28 14:37:39 <gumbal1> "I should charge you for Judicial Heresy, Winthrope!"
Nov 28 14:38:09 <TeslaTornado> He smiles. "The Rogue's Pact of Cycle Fifty-Nine states that any individual incapable of recall due to fatigue-related jadedness may not be called as a valid witness."
Nov 28 14:38:36 <TeslaTornado> "Ergo, Rodman's testimony neither weighs for or against Nurse Walker's case."
Nov 28 14:39:33 <gumbal1> The preacher scowls. "Fine! Maybe we'll pick a better witness. One such as…"
Nov 28 14:40:11 <gumbal1> Rodmann's witness chair falls apart, and is replaced by another witness chair, in which sits a giant violet mantis-looking thing.
Nov 28 14:40:23 <gumbal1> It starts flailing.
Nov 28 14:40:39 <TeslaTornado> 4df+8 (Acad + MP) What the hell is that thing
Nov 28 14:40:39 <Glacon> TeslaTornado: (Acad + MP) What the hell is that thing: 7 (4df+8=-, 0, -, +)
Nov 28 14:40:59 <gumbal1> The Unseelie Spawn. It probably should be put back in contianment immediatly.
Nov 28 14:41:15 <TeslaTornado> "Oh bloody hell. Put that back incontainment immediately."
Nov 28 14:41:57 <TeslaTornado> "The Violence Prohibition of Three-Ninety-Three dictates that any witness potentially capable of murdering the judicial panel must immediately be remanded to a secure location."
Nov 28 14:42:00 <gumbal1> "Fine!" The UnSp is put back.
Nov 28 14:42:13 <Soulless> Elanor puts a hand to her face.
Nov 28 14:42:19 <Soulless> "I volunteer as a witness."
Nov 28 14:42:33 <gumbal1> Bandages speaks up. "I beliee we sh-oh."
Nov 28 14:42:53 <TeslaTornado> Kevin also looks.
Nov 28 14:42:54 <Soulless> She wants Kevin to help wear downthe preacher some more.
Nov 28 14:43:03 <TesKin> Branko takess a drag on his cigarette. He watches quietly.
Nov 28 14:43:08 <gumbal1> The preacher looks furious.
Nov 28 14:43:17 <gumbal1> A witness chair appears for Elanor.
Nov 28 14:43:17 <TeslaTornado> He squints at Elanor and gives a small nod. ~Just this once, Thorne.~
Nov 28 14:43:32 <Soulless> She smiles a bit to Kevin, then looks at the furious preacher and smiles a bit more.
Nov 28 14:43:44 <Soulless> She settles on the chair, waiting and confident in her teammate.
Nov 28 14:44:04 <gumbal1> Bandages speaks up. "Did you, Agent Thorne, notice Nurse Walker perform Heresy of any degree?"
Nov 28 14:46:02 <Soulless> She puts a hand to her face. "What is Heresy defined by?"
Nov 28 14:47:18 <gumbal1> "Heresy is the betreyal, mockery, or otherwise affront to the Gray God Mannus and, in some cases, the Indigo Lady."
Nov 28 14:49:19 <Soulless> "…No, I don't remember anything that would be an affront to the Gray God Mannus or the Indigo Lady."
Nov 28 14:49:37 <TeslaTornado> Kevin waits for his opening.
Nov 28 14:50:23 <gumbal1> "Then I shall have to say 'Not Guilty'." One can almost see Bandages' smug look through their, well, bandages.
Nov 28 14:51:24 <gumbal1> "Do either of you," he gestures to the other two archangels. "have anything else to say?"
Nov 28 14:52:18 <Soulless> She waits.
Nov 28 14:52:34 <Soulless> Head abit tilted. Daring them to say anything.
Nov 28 14:52:39 <gumbal1> Anita stands up. "I do." She looks to Kevin. "MonsignorWinsthrope, do you believe Monsignor Walker's actions are indicitaive of heresy?"
Nov 28 14:52:48 <gumbal1> The Preacher is just fuming.
Nov 28 14:52:50 <TeslaTornado> "The Gazprom Proclamation on Mundane Magical Items dictates that, in order to maintain the guise of a mundane item, any magical device must perform all functions of its chosen disguise."
Nov 28 14:53:09 <TeslaTornado> "Your indigo phone is a functional telephone."
Nov 28 14:53:24 <TeslaTornado> "Ergo, Nurse Walker can use it to do whatever he damn well wants."
Nov 28 14:53:31 <gumbal1> "This is true. Hm…"
Nov 28 14:53:39 <gumbal1> "Not Guilty either."
Nov 28 14:53:51 <gumbal1> Both archanges look to the Preacher.
Nov 28 14:54:03 <TeslaTornado> Kevin grins at the Preacher.
Nov 28 14:54:25 <TesKin> Branko finshes his cigarette and flicks it on the ground in front of him.
Nov 28 14:54:26 * Wixelt (ten.58231sa.00A460FE-CRInys|tibbiM#ten.58231sa.00A460FE-CRInys|tibbiM) has joined #homeimprovement
Nov 28 14:54:29 <TeslaTornado> His grin is oddly carcharhinous.
Nov 28 14:54:32 <TesKin> He grins at the Preacher as well.
Nov 28 14:54:50 <gumbal1> The Preacher smiles for a few seconds, before putting his hands under his own chin and ripping his head off. A spray of ichor flows from it, and his body turns blue and smaller.
Nov 28 14:54:54 <gumbal1> "I think he quit."
Nov 28 14:55:27 <TeslaTornado> "That's in violation of the Good Conduct Protocol."
Nov 28 14:55:33 <gumbal1> Bandages stannds up. "And as much as I like it here, I think it's time to end this trial with a 2-1 decision."
Nov 28 14:55:58 <TeslaTornado> "And the Blood Pact of Zyxxas the Younger."
Nov 28 14:56:09 <gumbal1> Anita flips through her book. "It appears you're right. I'll speak with him about this."
Nov 28 14:56:32 <TeslaTornado> "See that he does, or he may find himself disbarred." He grins wider. "His conduct is most unbecoming for a representative of the law of the Court."
Nov 28 14:56:56 <gumbal1> Bandages bangs his gavel, and the makeshift courthouse disappears.
Nov 28 14:57:00 <Soulless> Elanor settles off the chair when she can, rubbing her face.
Nov 28 14:57:04 <Soulless> "That is ridiculous…"
Nov 28 14:57:31 <gumbal1> Many of the entities start disappearing, until only Bandages, Walker, and Psi-7 is left.
Nov 28 14:58:18 <gumbal1> Bandages approaches the team, taking care to step over the still asleep Nurse Walker.
Nov 28 14:58:21 <TeslaTornado> Kevin stands with his hands folded behind his back.
Nov 28 14:58:38 <TeslaTornado> He picked a good day to be wearing a suit that cost roughly twelve hundred pounds.
Nov 28 14:59:16 <gumbal1> "Thank you for your help. Hopefully Security dealt with the Bear's sudden arrival as well."
Nov 28 14:59:26 <TeslaTornado> "The Bear?"
Nov 28 14:59:48 <gumbal1> "Another Archangel. Serves the Great Beast Draki."
Nov 28 15:00:01 <Soulless> "Oh my goodness."
Nov 28 15:00:11 <TeslaTornado> "Good god."
Nov 28 15:00:26 <TeslaTornado> "Hopefully it'll go peacefully. I don't want casualties on the security team."
Nov 28 15:01:15 <gumbal1> "Anyways, blessings of Mannus upon you. And one last word of advice…"
Nov 28 15:01:27 * Sax (em.ot.emoh.er|uoy#em.ot.emoh.er|uoy) has joined #homeimprovement
Nov 28 15:01:40 <TeslaTornado> Kevin raises his eyebrow.
Nov 28 15:01:46 <gumbal1> "The moment you see Shadeurker again, kill them. It's for your own good. Don't you ever wonder how so much gets through defenses?"
Nov 28 15:02:23 <TeslaTornado> "I'm in the process of strengthening our counter-infiltration measures as we speak. This is the final straw."
Nov 28 15:02:38 <TeslaTornado> "Thank you for your warning."
Nov 28 15:03:46 <gumbal1> Bandages nods, and leaves, leaving a few gray ticket-looking things in his place.
Nov 28 15:03:58 <TesKin> Branko picks one up and looks at it.
Nov 28 15:04:05 <TeslaTornado> Kevin also picks one of them up.
Nov 28 15:04:09 <gumbal1> 4 of them, to be exact.
Nov 28 15:04:33 <gumbal1> "1 free divine intervention"
Nov 28 15:04:54 <TeslaTornado> "…" Kevin pockets it.
Nov 28 15:04:59 <TesKin> Branko shrugs and sticks the ticket in his brest pocket.
Nov 28 15:06:05 <Soulless> "Take care."
Nov 28 15:06:11 <Soulless> Elanor takes one.
Nov 28 15:06:22 <Soulless> She smiles a bit. Divine intervention, huh.
Nov 28 15:07:48 <gumbal1> Officer Brown comes by the courthouse. He appears to have had his eyebrows singed off. "Maintenance is clear. Have you finished up the courthouse?"
Nov 28 15:07:58 <Soulless> "Yes. Are you alright?"
Nov 28 15:08:05 <TeslaTornado> Kevin stands by.
Nov 28 15:08:47 <gumbal1> "I'm better than Milton."
Nov 28 15:09:18 <gumbal1> "Poor bastard's probably gonna need a stay in medical."
Nov 28 15:10:40 <gumbal1> ~THE END~
