Talking to Miss Schism[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Sorry to bother you, but I've got some bad news. I'm investigating you on charges of slander and I need to ask some questions.
  • Miss Schism: Well, it's all preposterous, but I have nothing to hide. Ask away, my dear.
    • Ask about:
      • What have you said that could be considered slanderous?
        • Player: What have you said that could be considered slanderous?
        • Miss Schism: Nothing at all! I would never say a bad word against anyone who didn't deserve it. I enjoy talking to others and bringing everyone up-to-date with local events.
      • What do you know about the bank robbery?
        • Player: What do you know about the bank robbery?
        • Miss Schism: My dear, the things I could tell you! First, did you know that the Wise Old Man did it? I couldn't believe it at first. Honestly, I don't understand why I'm in jail for telling the truth and he's not! I didn't rob a bank!
        • Player: You're in jail because you interfered with an ongoing investigation by spreading gossip and being nosy. What if they can't convict him because of your interfering?
        • Miss Schism: Well, if they'd done their job properly, I wouldn't have had to investigate at all. I mean, really, it's a clear-cut case.
        • Player: So you admit to 'investigating' the case on your own? What did you do?
        • Miss Schism: I watched the security recording. A guard was happy to show it to me, after I gave him some stew. Then, when the old man was out of his house, I decided to have a look around. He has so many expensive things now, but he was poor before the bank robbery!
        • Player: You went in his house? That's breaking and entering!
        • Miss Schism: It was for the good of the community! We don't need riff-raff like him living there.
      • Why do you sit outside all day?
        • Player: Why do you sit outside on a stool all day?
        • Miss Schism: It's not because it's comfortable, I can tell you that, my dear. The farmer's market brings so many thieves and pickpockets to the village, so I like to keep an eye out. It also gives me the chance to gather donations for a fund I have been working on; we plan to restore Draynor Manor to former glories, don't you know?
        • Player: So, you care very deeply for your community's safety and the upkeep of historic monuments.
        • Miss Schism: Well of course, dear. We can't let Draynor go to rack-and-ruin like Rimmington, can we dear?
      • I don't have any more questions.
        • Player: I don't have any more questions.
        • (dialogue terminates)

Talking to bank guard[edit | edit source]

  • Bank guard: Yes?
    • What would you like to say?
      • I need to speak to you about Miss Schism's court case.
        • Player: Hello. I'm investigating charges against Miss Schism for slander. Could I ask you a few questions?
        • Bank guard: That nosey-parker? She doesn't just spread lies, she interfered with ongoing investigations.
          • Ask about:
            • How has she interfered with your investigation?
              • Player: How has she interfered with your investigation?
              • Bank guard: She went snooping around the old man's house, for starters. We had the joint staked out for months, waiting for his next move, and she strolls in and tampers with the evidence! That's not all, either: she's been telling everyone that the old man robbed the bank, and has been slandering our abilities as policemen and women. You can't perform an undercover investigation if the town gossip is telling everyone about it.
            • What slanderous things has Miss Schism said?
              • Player: What slanderous things has Miss Schism said?
              • Bank guard: What hasn't she said, and who hasn't she annoyed? She's taken a pop at the farmers of the town - the same farmers who bring so much tourism and trade to the village - and she's been chinwagging about the Wise Old Man, a suspect in a recent bank robbery. We can't be covert in investigating him if she's forever telling people that he's the focus of our investigation!
            • What do you know about Miss Schism?
              • Player: What do you know about Miss Schism?
              • Bank guard: You know what? She's only become a nuisance very recently. She genuinely cares about the village, working for the Draynor Manor Restoration Fund, and she's just started a community watch program. For all of her irritating quirks, she really wants Draynor to be the best place to live.
            • I don't have any more questions.
              • Player: I don't have any more questions.
              • ((dialogue terminates))
      • The robber in the recording looked familiar.
        • (non-relevant dialogue)
      • Can I see that recording again, please?
        • (non-relevant dialogue)
      • Sorry, I don't want anything.
        • (non-relevant dialogue)

Talking to Morgan[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hi, I'm investigating allegation against Miss Schism for saying slanderous things against several individuals. I'd like to ask you a few questions.
  • Morgan: I don't like speaking badly of any one, but I will try to answer as best as I can.
    • Ask about:
      • What slanderous things has Miss Schism said?
        • Player: What slanderous things has Miss Schism said?
        • Morgan: I hardly ever hear from her directly; I get the feeling that she's taken a dislike to me and my wife. When we first moved here, she was the first in line to greet us, and brought a casserole over for us to eat. But you could see her eyes glancing at our possessions, and she was already making snap judgments. Lo and behold, the next day, we heard gossip that some poor, untidy folk had moved into Draynor and they were full of foreign ideas.
        • Player: Foreign ideas?
        • Morgan: I mentioned to Miss Schism that someone should get a vampyre slayer to kill Count Draynor, but she branded the idea as 'outlandish'. Still, it worked, and we're vampyre-free!
      • What do you know about Miss Schism?
        • Player: What do you know about Miss Schism?
        • Morgan: Not very much. Ever since we moved here, she's kept her distance because we're not 'local'. Happily, she's the exception, as the rest of the village is very friendly.
      • What do you know about the bank robbery?
        • Player: What do you know about the bank robbery?
        • Morgan: Not very much, as it happened before we moved here. It sounds like a tragedy: some people were killed and their bodies were robbed. I hear rumours that the Wise Old Man did it, but I don't believe them: he's been nothing but kind to us since we moved here, and the gossip has the whiff of Miss Schism about it.
      • I don't have any more questions.
        • Player: I don't have any more questions.
        • ((dialogue terminates))

Trial[edit | edit source]

Opening statement[edit | edit source]

Only if prosecuting.

The prosecution's case[edit | edit source]

Only if defending.

  • Prosecutor: Members of the Jury, I am going to present evidence that decisively proves that Miss Schism spread slanderous rumours and interfered with a criminal investigation. First, I would like to present a fingerprint found at the scene of the crime in Draynor Village. They belong to the suspect, Miss Schism, and it is believed that she went into the Wise Old Man's house to investigate herself, thus contaminating any further investigations. The Prosecution calls Miss Schism.
  • Miss Schism is called to the stand
  • Prosecutor: What were you doing in the Wise Old Man's house?
  • Miss Schism: It seemed to me that it was a clear-cut case, my dear, but they were taking so long to investigate it! I thought I'd go in and help. I've got an eye for detail, and might see something they missed.
  • Prosecutor: So, you admit to 'investigating' the case on your own? What did you do?
  • Miss Schism: Well, I watched the security recording. A bank guard was happy to show it to me, after I made him some stew. Then, when the old man was out of the house, I decided to have a look around. He has so many expensive things now, but he was poor before the bank robbery!
  • Prosecutor: So you freely admit that you illegally entered a crime scene?
  • Miss Schism: It was for the good of the community! We don't need riff-raff like him living here.
  • The jury agrees with the prosecutor's argument.
  • Prosecutor The Prosecution calls the bank guard.
  • Bank guard is called to the stand
  • Prosecutor: What slanderous things has Miss Schism said?
  • Bank guard: What hasn't she said? She's accused the farmers of attracting thieves and murdered. She's moaned about new people moving into town, and how they aren't invested in the community. Her favourite subject, though, is the Wise Old Man. How can we covertly investigate him if she's telling everyone that he's the focus of our investigation?
  • The jury agrees with the prosecutor's argument.
  • Judge: I think that will be enough. It's time for you to summarise your case to the Jury.
  • Prosecutor: Ladies and gentlemen of the Jury, I have presented evidence that conclusively proves the Defendant compromised an investigation by contaminating a crime scene and spreading rumours about the suspect.
  • Short pause
  • Prosecutor: While this woman roams freely, doing whatever she wants, we run the risk of letting criminals go free, and persecuting people that she feels are criminals.

Talking to the judge[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
    • Your Honour, I'd like to call a witness.
      • Player: Your Honour, I'd like to call a witness.
      • If the player did not interview anyone prior to the trial:
        • Judge: You haven't interviewed anyone. That's going to make it hard for you to ask them pertinent questions, don't you think?
      • Otherwise:
        • Miss Schism.
          • Player: The [Prosecution/Defence] calls Miss Schism.
          • Miss Schism takes the stand
        • Bank guard.
          • Player: The [Prosecution/Defence] calls the bank guard.
          • Bank guard takes the stand
        • Morgan.
          • Player: The [Prosecution/Defence] calls Morgan.
          • Morgan takes the stand
        • No one at this time. I would like to return to evidence.
        • 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)

Presenting evidence[edit | edit source]

Fingerprint[edit | edit source]

If prosecuting

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

If defending

  • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, if I could draw your attention to Prosecution Evidence #1: A fingerprint found in the Wise Old Man's house. The fingerprint may well have been found in the Wise Old Man's house, but I could list off a number of reasons for why it's in there. For one, she's an active member of the community, and could have been in his house to discuss one.
  • The jury agrees with your argument.

Leaflet[edit | edit source]

If prosecuting

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

If defending

  • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, if I could draw your attention to Prosecution Evidence #2: A leaflet.
    • It's a well-written leaflet.
      • Player: This leaflet is really professional and well-written. It's convinced me to give as much as I can to the charity.
      • The jury doesn't know what to think of your argument.
    • This leaflet is in support of a pointless cause.
      • Player: Unfortunately, this is yet another of Miss Schism's leaflets. The leaflets may seem worthless and a nuisance, but we need people like her to champion causes that we wouldn't otherwise hear about.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
    • This leaflet is for a worthwhile charity.
      • Player: This leaflet was found on Miss Schism when she was arrested. It's for a worthwhile charity that she is involved in heavily: trying to save Draynor Manor for future generations. You cannot dispute that she has the community's best interests at heart.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.

Cross-examination[edit | edit source]

Miss Schism[edit | edit source]

If prosecuting

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

If defending

  • Ask about:
    • Have you said anything that could be considered slanderous?
      • Player: Have you said anything that could be considered slanderous?
      • Miss Schism: Nothing at all! I make sure that everything I say is truthful and the opinions of the common man. I don't think it's a crime to enjoy telling people local village news; in fact, I think it make me better at it.
      • The jury doesn't know what to think of your argument.
    • What do you know about the bank robbery?
      • Player: What do you know about the bank robbery?
      • Miss Schism: I know just about everything, my dear. My investigations led me to the truth: that the old man is the bank robber. Why we can't get him behind bars is beyond me.
      • Player: You believe you helped with the case?
      • Miss Schism: Of course, my dear! My investigations led to dozens of new leads and the uncovering of some important evidence.
      • Player: You admit to 'investigating' the case on your own. What did you do?
      • Miss Schism: I watched the security recording, as a guard was happy to exchange a look for some stew. Then, when the old man was out of the house, I has a look around. He has a few things that he couldn't afford before the robbery!
      • Player: You went in his house? I'm not sure you can do that, Miss Schism.
      • Miss Schism: How else could I prove that he was the bank robber?
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
    • Why do you sit outside all day?
      • Player: Why do you sit outside on a stool all day?
      • Miss Schism: Somebody has to! Everyone else turns a blind eye to the thieving and pickpocketing, as if Draynor should be the home for bandits and highwaymen. I'm not going to let Draynor Village become Ardougne Market.
      • Player: So, you care very deeply for your community's safety.
      • Miss Schism: Of course, my dear.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • That's all, for now.
      • Player: That's all, for now. Thank you.
      • (dialogue terminates)

Bank guard[edit | edit source]

If prosecuting

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

If defending

  • Ask about:
    • How has Miss Schism interfered with your investigation?
      • Player: How has Miss Schism interfered with your investigation?
      • Bank guard: She's been snooping around the old man's house, which is impressive as we've had the place staked-out for months, and nobody noticed her walking in! Then she tells everyone about her opinion on the case and what she's found out. How can you run a covert investigation if someone is shouting about it from the rooftops?
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
    • What slanderous things has Miss Schism said?
      • Player: What slanderous things has Miss Schism said?
      • Bank guard: The farmers attract thieves, foreigners are bringing their strange ideas to Draynor, the guard aren't doing their job properly, the Wise Old Man is a criminal: everything she says borders on slander.
    • What do you know about Miss Schism?
      • Player: What do you know about Miss Schism?
      • Bank guard: She's been here all her life, as far as I can tell. If you ignore the slander and the interference, she's a good-natured lady who is determined to make Draynor Village safe and civilised. She's set up a neighbourhood watch and she collects for several charities. Not bad, that.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • That's all, for now.
      • Player: That's all, for now. Thank you.
      • (dialogue terminates)

Morgan[edit | edit source]

If prosecuting

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

If defending

  • Ask about:
    • What slanderous things has Miss Schism said?
      • Player: What slanderous things has Miss Schism said?
      • Morgan: Considering Miss Schism has only ever been to our house once before, she has still made up her mind that we are 'Rimmington riff-raff' with 'foreign ideas'. It's hard to figure where she has got those ideas from: we're from Varrock and we've barely said two sentences to her.
      • Player: She said that you had foreign ideas?
      • Morgan: We wanted to hire a vampyre slayer to get rid of Count Draynor, but Miss Schism didn't like the idea because it was 'outlandish'. Last time I looked, there was no vampyre about. I'd say we were right.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
    • What do you know about Miss Schism?
      • Player: What do you know about Miss Schism?
      • Morgan: You probably know more than I do. She's a bit of a busybody, isn't she? She set up the neighbourhood watch and is often asking for money for neighbourhood watch schemes.
      • The jury doesn't know what to think of your argument.
    • What do you know about the bank robbery?
      • Player: What do you know about the bank robbery?
      • Morgan: Not much at all, and it's hard to unravel the truth from what might be lies. Someone killed a few people in there, didn't they? Then they took cash from their bodies. There's a rumour circulating that it might have been the Wise Old Man, but I take that with a pinch of garlic. He's lent us books and a cup of sugar, and seems a very nice man.
      • The jury doesn't know what to think of your argument.
    • That's all, for now.
      • Player: That's all, for now. Thank you.
      • (dialogue terminates)

Talking to the prosecutor[edit | edit source]

Only available if defending.

  • Player: Could you state your case for me?
  • Prosecutor: Sure. Would you like a summary or the full case?
    • Summary
      • Prosecutor: My case rests on these points: Miss Schism's fingerprint was found in the Wise Old Man's house, proving she was snooping. I called Miss Schism to the stand and she admitted to illegally entering a crime scene, claiming it was for the good of the community. I then called the bank guard. He stated that Miss Schism is a blabbermouth and revealed to anyone passing that the Wise Old Man was being investigated, compromising the investigation.
