Pre-trialEdit

InterviewsEdit

The Frog PrinceEdit

  • Player: Hello. I'm investigating an allegation that you impersonate royalty in order to get kisses.
  • Frog Prince: It beggars belief how royalty is treated here; however, I shall bend to your customs. You may proceed.
    • The kissing incident.
      • Player: Can you tell me about the kissing incident?
      • Frog Prince: Once upon a time, I was cursed to be a frog forever. The only way to undo it was to find a girl and gain her kiss. Being of royal birth in my homeland, I would find a wandering firl and explain who I was, and that I needed a kiss to return to my natural form. Unfortunately, this Flora girl thought a kiss meant we were to get married and she would become a princess. But how can I? I am forbidden from marying anyone on this plane, and she is but a commoner.
      • Player: If she kissed you, why are you still a frog?
      • Frog Prince: That is the worst part of it. A kiss only removes the curse for a short while. I do not know how I'll be rid of it for good.
    • Lineage.
      • Player: Do you have any proof that you are a prince?
      • Frog Prince: I have my crown, do I not? Anyway, royalty does not need to prove itself, it is in the blood.
    • Dress.
      • Player: You gave the dress to Flora, after the kissing incident, didn't you? I believe you referred to it as a 'princess dress'?
      • Frog Prince: It is customary in my country to give a gift to those who help you. I never referred to it as a 'princess dress'. I simply sent one of my minions to get a gift for Flora.
      • Player: So, where did the princess dress come from?
      • Frog Prince: I believe it was one of your 'fancy dress' shops.
      • Player: So you didn't intend it to mean you were getting married?
      • Frog Prince: Of course not!
    • I don't have any more questions.
      • Player: I don't have any more questions.

FloraEdit

  • Flora: What do you want?
  • Player: I need to ask you some questions about your case against the Frog Prince.
  • Flora: Prince? Ha!
    • The kissing incident.
      • Player: Can you tell me about the kissing incident?
      • Flora: I was minding my own business, doing my chores, when frogs started hopping out of my mop bucket! They were ribbiting that the Frog Prince wanted to speak with me. So, I went with 'em and this frog in a crown told me he was a prince, that he'd marry me and take me away from this dreary life, if only I'd give him a kiss.
      • Player: Did he really say all that?
      • Flora: I may not have it word-for-word, but that's what he meant.
      • Player: If you did kiss him, why is he still a frog?
      • Flora: Exactly! He must scam kisses from every unsuspecting girl. He can't really be a human; that prince thing is just a chat-up line.
    • Royalty.
      • Player: What gave you the idea that he was a prince and that he'd marry you?
      • Flora: Well, he said he was a prince, and there's that crown on his head. Also, after I kissed him, he gave me this princess dress! It doesn't get much clearer than that does it?
      • Player: Well, actually it does. A proper proposal would have made it a whole lot clearer.
    • Marriage.
      • Player: Why are you so bent on marrying him?
      • Flora: I spend all day weeding: weeding the farm patches, weeding my garden, weeding my house of all the weeds I accidentally dragged in when weeding. It's a dull life. Who wouldn't want to be a princess?
      • Player: But he's a frog! You don't really want to marry a frog, do you?
      • Flora: If he's a prince, I don't care! It can't be worse than weeding.
    • Why are you in jail?
      • Player: I know why the frog is in jail, but why are you? You're the one accusing him of a crime.
      • Flora: The Judge felt if I was foolish enough to want to marry a frog, I might wander off with any old fool that came along. So he said I needed to stay here until the court date.
      • Player: That's not the nicest thing to say, but I see what he means.
    • I don't have any more questions.
      • Player: I don't have any more questions.

Arresting officerEdit

  • Player: Hi, I need to ask some questions about the Frog Prince case.
  • Arresting officer: Well, I was the arresting officer, so I'd be a good person to ask.
    • The kissing incident.
      • Player: What do you know about the kissing incident that led to the frog's arrest?
      • Arresting officer: Only what's in the case report. I had head other reports of frogs appearing and asking for kisses, though.
      • Player: Do you think there's any truth to these stories?
      • Arresting officer: I think so. The Mysterious Old Man mentioned that he wasn't surprised the frog was being arrested.
    • The arrest.
      • Player: Could you tell me about the arrest?
      • Arresting officer: Certainly. The frog was living in a cave, inaccessible from normal routes.
      • Player: How did you manage to arrest him?
      • Arresting officer: The Mysterious Old Man lent us a hand. He was able to locate the frog, and got a few of us in there to arrest him.
      • Player: So, the frog lives on another plane of reality?
      • Arresting officer: It would appear so, yes.
      • Player: Would you consider where he lives to be a kingdom and him to be the ruler?
      • Arresting officer: Yes, I would actually. All the frogs in the cavern treat him as their leader. They also call him 'Prince', and 'Your Highness'.
    • I don't have any more questions.
      • Player: I don't have any more questions.

Presenting evidenceEdit

Princess dressEdit

  • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen, if I could draw your attention to the Prosecution Evidence #1: A princess dress
  • If prosecuting:
    • Player: I present the so-called 'princess' dress, given to Flora for services rendered. What was the poor girl to think, except that, by kissing the frog, she would become a princess? Clearly the frog was trying to misdirect her with false promises.
    • The jury agrees with your argument.

Cross-examinationEdit

The Frog PrinceEdit

  • The kissing incident.
    • Player: Can you tell us about the kissing incident?

    • The jury doesn't know what to think about your argument.
  • Royal lineage
    • Player: Do you have any proof that you are a prince?
    • Frog Prince: I have my crown, do I not? Anyway, royalty does not need to prove itself, it is in the blood.

    • If prosecuting:
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • If defending:
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
  • The dress.
    • Player: You gave the dress to Flora, after the kissing incident, didn't you? I believe you referred to it as a 'princess dress'?

    • If defending:
      • (Transcript missing. edit)
  • Princess dress.
    • Player: I believe the frog gave you something after kissing him. Can you tell us what it was?
    • Flora: He gave me this white gown and called it a 'princess dress'. It doesn't get much clearer that we were going to get married, does it?
    • If prosecuting:
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • If defending:
      • (Transcript missing. edit)
  • Marriage.
    • Player: Why are you so bent on marrying him?

    • Player: Do you think there's any truth to these stories?
    • Arresting officer: I think so. The Mysterious Old Man mentioned that he wasn't surprised the frog was being arrested.

Talking to the prosecutorEdit

  • Player: Could you state your case for me?
  • Prosecutor: Sure.

Talking to the defenderEdit

Only available if prosecuting.

  • Player: Could you state your case for me?
  • Defender: Sure.
  • Defender: Would you like a summary or the full case?
    • Summary
      • Defender: My case rests on these points: The dress given to Flora was simply a gift. The frog is foreign and didn't understand the meaning, a simple miscommunication.
      • Defender: I called Flora to the stand and asked her about the dress. She thought it was a clear indication of marriage, but as there were no other such suggestions, it's circumstantial.
      • Defender: I then called the arresting officer. He confirmed that the frog is royalty from another plane of existence.

SummaryEdit

  • (Opens Jury selection interface)
  • If the player made enough correct choices in their argumentation:
    • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, I have presented evidence that conclusively proves the Defendant is a fraud whose aim in life is to mislead and scam others.
    • Player: Flora was promised royalty, but she only became princess of her own disappointment. Whenever I'm promised land, wealth and power in exchange for a kiss from an animal, I expect that promise to be kept.
  • If the player did not make enough correct choices in their argumentation:
    • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, I have presented evidence that the Defendant lies about his past and uses it to scam others.
    • Player: Poor Flora was scammed into giving the Frog Prince a kiss. She could have got any number of frog-based diseases, like gooey green-eye.
  • Judge: Very well. Now, the Defence may present their case.

The defence's caseEdit

Only if prosecuting.

  • Defender: Members of the Jury, I am going to present you with evidence that decisively proves the Frog Prince is innocent.
  • Defender: If I could refer you to the Prosecution's evidence, the princess dress. It seems that my client was only trying to be generous, offering Flora a gift in exchange for her help. The misinterpretation is all on her side. It is not my client's fault that she mistook a simple gift for a marriage propsal.
  • Defender: The Defence calls the arresting officer.
  • The arresting officer takes the stand
  • Defender: You arrested the Frog Prince. Could you tell us about it, please?
  • Arresting officer: Certainly. He was living in a cave, inaccessible from normal routes. Fortunately, the Mysterious Old Man helped us to locate him.
  • Defender: So, he does in fact live on another plane of reality?
  • Arresting officer: It would appear that way, yes.
  • Defender: Would you consider where he lives to be a kingdom and him to be the ruler?
  • Arresting officer: Yes, I would actually. All the frogs in the cavern treat him as their leader. They also call him 'Prince' and 'Your Highness'.
  • The jury reacts positively
  • Defender: The Defence calls Flora.
  • Flora takes the stand
  • Defender: I believe the frog gave you something after kissing him. Can you tell us what it was?
  • Flora: He gave me this white gown and called it a 'princess dress'. It doesn't get much clearer that we were going to get married, does it?
  • Defender: Actually, it does. A verbal or written proposal would have made it very clear but, as of yet, there is no proof he said anything of the sort.
  • The jury reacts positively
  • Judge: I think that will be enough. It's time for you to summarise your case to the Jury.
  • Defender: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, I have presented evidence that conclusively proves the Defendant is innocent with regard to these crimes.
  • Defender: My client has the misfortune of living with a curse. He asked for a little sympathy and help, and in return he got a lawsuit! If anyone is guilty here, it is Flora for attempting to slur the good name of my client.
