Court documentsEdit

Court summonsEdit

You have been summoned to the Seers' Village courthouse to work on the case of The Mime vs The People. Please present yourself to the court clerk at your earliest convenience.

Fingerprint reportEdit

The accused was wearing gloves at the time of the arrest. No fingerprints were found at the scene of the crime.

Circumstances and evidenceEdit

Suspect: The Mime

Case Background: The constabulary was unable to get a clear answer from the Mime with regard to the charges. Reports of mimicry and loitering were received from anonymous tipsters. The Mime was initially found passed out near the Party Room in Falador. Cause of unconsciousness was undetermined. One witness was found, Party Peter, who had observed the Mime in the Party Room before the tips were called in. Party Pete found nothing offensive in the Mime's actions.

There is no further need for interviews of this witness.

The Mime is present at the courthouse, ready for interviewing.

Character backgroundEdit

Suspect: The Mime

Background: The true identity of the Mime is unknown, as he refuses to remove his mask during questioning, as is his right.

Victim: Unknown

Background: Anonymous reports of mimicry and loitering were made to the Falador constabulary. The Mime was found unconscious near the Party Room. An arrest was made to facilitate further questioning.

Witness: Party Pete

Background: Party Pete owns and operates the Party Room in Falador. He made a statement that he saw the Mime dancing shortly before his arrest. He may have observed a confrontation between the Mime and another patron, but he was uncertain as to the context.

There is no further need for interviews of this witness.

The Mime is present at the courthouse, ready for interviewing.

The prosecution's caseEdit

Only if defending.

  • Prosecutor: Members of the Jury, I am going to present you with evidence that decisively proves this Mime was illegally mimicking and loitering in a public place.
  • Prosecutor: The Prosecution calls the Mime.
  • The Mime takes the stand
  • Prosecutor: Please state for the Jury what happened to you before your arrest.
  • The Mime performs a series of emotes
  • Prosecutor: You went to a dance party.
  • The Mime performs a series of emotes
  • Prosecutor: You met a girl.
  • The Mime performs a series of emotes
  • Prosecutor: You danced with her.
  • The Mime performs a series of emotes
  • Prosecutor: A man showed up and was angry. He was probably dating the girl.
  • The Mime performs a series of emotes
  • Prosecutor: You teased the boyfriend, and he became angry with you.
  • Prosecutor: Well, clearly, you shouldn't have danced with the girl. You then proceeded to taunt the boyfriend with mimicry and he called in the constabulary. I think that's pretty cut and dry.
  • The jury reacts positively
  • Prosecutor: The Prosecution calls the arresting officer
  • The arresting officer takes the stand
  • Prosecutor: So, you found the Defendant unconscious near the Party Room in Falador, correct?
  • Arresting officer: Yes, the Defendant was exactly where the anonymous tip said he would be. He didn't look injured, so we brought him in for further questioning, which he resisted. Further questioning of witnesses led us to believe the tipster had been correct.
  • Prosecutor: The the Mime had been annoying people with mimicry and loitering?
  • Arresting officer: Yes. At least one other person spotted him in the vicinity, loitering.
  • The jury reacts positively
  • Prosecutor: The Prosecution calls Party Pete.
  • Party Pete takes the stand
  • Prosecutor: Party Pete, is it? In the case report, it says you saw the Defendant in the Party Room shortly before the tip was called in. Could you tell us what he was doing?
  • Party Pete: He was throwing some pretty righteous shapes on the dance floor!
  • Prosecutor: Was he bothering anyone?
  • Party Pete: Hardly, dude. I mean, he was getting down with some gnarly mime moves. I can only guesstimate that someone thought he was making fun of them, but I dug it. I gotta get myself an invisible box. He rocked that box.
  • The jury reacts negatively
  • Judge: I think that's enough. It's time for you to summarise your case to the Jury. We've had a request from the Mime's interpreter that you do it using emotes, so that he can better understand what is going on.
  • The prosecutor mimes his summary
  • Prosecutor: Thank you, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury.

Talking to the judgeEdit

  • Judge: What can I do for you?
    • Your Honour, could you explain what I need to do?
    • Your Honour, I'd like to present evidence.
      • Player: Your Honour, I'd like to present evidence.
      • Judge: There is no evidence to present for this case. You had best stick to calling witnesses.
    • Your Honour, I'd like to call a witness.
      • Player: Your Honour, I'd like to call a witness.
        • The Mime.
          • Player: The [Prosecution/Defence] calls the Mime.
          • The Mime takes the stand
        • Arresting officer.
          • Player: The [Prosecution/Defence] calls the arresting officer.
          • The arresting officer takes the stand
        • Party Pete.
          • Player: The [Prosecution/Defence] calls Party Pete.
          • Party Pete takes the stand
        • No one at this time. I would like to finish and summarise my case.
          • Player: No one at this time, Your Honour. I would like to finish my presentation by summarising my case to the Jury.
          • (Proceed to 'Summary' below)

Cross-examinationEdit

The MimeEdit

If prosecuting:

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

If defending:

  • The girl.
    • Player: Was the girl a mime as well?
    • Player: So, she could have mentioned her boyfriend before flirting and dancing with you, but she failed to do so. How were you to know that she was taken? You were innocently asking for a dance.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
  • Dancing.
    • Player: Do you often go to parties?
    • Player: Are you usually well-received when you arrive?
    • Player: I suppose mimes aren't well-received in many places. It must be difficult to fit in.
    • The jury doesn't know what to think about your argument.
  • The mime mask.
    • Player: Do you always wear that mask?
    • Player: I suppose it's to hide your identity, since there is so much aggression towards mimes.
    • Player: If you had done something wrong, you could easily have removed your mask and blended into the crowd. Clearly you didn't do anything wrong.
    • Player: Err, no. I suppose you couldn't have removed your mask if you were unconscious.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.

Arresting officerEdit

If prosecuting:

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

If defending:

  • The tip.
    • Player: You received a tip that the mime was acting inappropriately in public, correct?
    • Arresting officer: Yes, the tip said the mime was loitering near the party room and mimicking people, which was causing irritation.
    • Player: And this tipster was on the scene? Did you speak to them?
    • Arresting officer: No, the tip was anonymous. When we arrived on the scene, no one was around, so we had no proof that the mime had done anything wrong. Still, he resisted arrest and was uncooperative during questioning, so we held him. We then discovered that Party Pete had witnessed events similar to what the tipster had said, and felt it was enough to pursue charges against the Defendant.
      • Player: That's a pretty weak reason to detain my client! No proof of any crime being committed, no witnesses, and an anonymous tip, which may or may not have been a prank.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
  • The incident
    • Player: What do you believe happened at the party, based on the witness statements?
    • Arresting officer: I believe the Mime danced with a girl, who's boyfriend became angry. The Mime then mocked the boyfriend by mimicking him. The boyfriend reacted in an unknown manner and the mime left the party by other means. We looked for the boyfriend, but gave up once it was clear that he had been provoked.
    • Player: Well, that's not very thorough investigation work, is it?
    • The jury doesn't know what to think about your argument.
  • The Mime.
    • Player: Tell us about the Mime.
    • Arresting officer: There's not much to tell. He resisted arrest, refused to answer questions - except by acting them out - and neglected to identify himself by removing his mask. What little we do understand of his story, he admits to harassing a man at the Party Room, but doesn't remember what happened after that.
    • Player: He may have confessed to that, but clearly something happened to render him unconscious.
    • Arresting officer: He had no injuries, and no one passing by was witness to an attack. It's possible he did it to himself. Maybe he mimed being underwater for too long.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
  • That's all, for now.
    • Player: That's all, for now. Thank you.

Party PeteEdit

If prosecuting:

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

If defending:

  • The Party.
    • Player: I believe you were hosting the party at the Party Room. Is that correct? What was the party like?
    • Party Pete: Yup, I'm Mayor of Partytown and everyone gets a key to the city. This particular party was ramping up nicely, so I decided to roll out the dancing knights.
    • Player: Do your parties often get rowdy? Do fights break out?
    • Party Pete: Aw, no man. Everybody has a whale of a time. As my bouncers like to say: check your bad karma at the door.
    • The jury doesn't know what to think about your argument.
  • The Mime.
    • Player: You saw the mime at your party?
    • Party Pete: Correctomundo. He was throwing some pretty righteous shapes on the dance floor.
    • Player: Did you see whom he was dancing with?
    • Party Pete: Nu-uh. I'm pretty sure it was a girl, but I didn't get a good look at her. I was too busy being bounced around the dancefloor by the beats.
    • Player: Did you see the altercation between the mime and the boyfriend?
    • Party Pete: I think I caught a glance of a dude nearby. I dunno if they were talking to each other or not.
    • Player: So the didn't look like they were having a fight? The Mime wasn't provoking him or making rude gestures?
    • Party Pete: No way, homey, he was dancing like he was possessed by the Demon of Funk. Dude has killer moves. I gotta get me an invisible box!
    • The jury agrees with your argument.
  • After the party.
    • (Transcript missing. edit)
  • That's all, for now.
    • Player: That's all, for now. Thank you.

Talking to the prosecutorEdit

Only available if defending.

  • Player: Could you state your case for me?
  • Prosecutor: Sure.
  • Prosecutor: Would you like a summary or the full case?
    • Summary
      • Prosecutor: My case rests on these points: The mime danced with a girl that had a boyfriend and taunted him.
      • Prosecutor: I called the arresting officer to the stand and asked him about the case. The Mime had been loitering and resisted questioning.
      • Prosecutor: I then called Party Pete. He maintains the mime wasn't bothering anyone.
    • Full case
