Pre-trial[edit | edit source]

Starting the case[edit | edit source]

Talking to the Clerk about the Court summons[edit | edit source]

  • Clerk: Would you like to defend or prosecute?
    • Defend.
      • (continues below)
    • Prosecute.
      • (continues below)
  • Clerk: You choose to [prosecute/defend].
  • If this is the player's first case with viewing orb
    • Clerk: Ah, a viewing orb! This case has a crime scene that needs investigating. I see from your record that this is your first case with a viewing orb. I'll take you through the procedure.
    • Player: Okay.
    • Clerk: The viewing orb has a recording of the crime scene on it which you can step into and explore. Once you are in the recording of the crime scene, the orb will provide you with a magnifying glass. Use this on items in the scene to investigate them thoroughly, and whatever you find can be used in court to support your case. You won't be able to take anything from the crime scene, since it doesn't really exist. You can return at any time during the case to investigate further.
  • Clerk: Look in the filing cabinet by my desk for more details on your case. When you feel prepared, use the stairs to enter the courtroom.
  • (dialogue terminates)

Searching the File cabinet[edit | edit source]

  • You search the filing cabinet and find some information relevant to your case.
  • Case reports 1, 2, and a Crime scene viewing orb are placed in your inventory

Crime scene viewing orb[edit | edit source]

  • The scene fades out and the Player is taken to the crime scene at the Party Room in Falador
  • You received a bat-in-a-box for this investigation. Use it to determine if the noise levels were over the legal limits.

Get-reading Bat in a box next to the Magical amplifier, or anywhere else in the Party Room

  • The bat squeaks a great deal. The music is quite loud.

Get-reading Bat in a box in Ikis Krum's house

  • The bat hardly squeaks at all. The music is very quiet.

Using Magnifying glass on Frozen party members or Party Pete

  • Player: Hmm, there is nothing relevant to the case here.

Using Magnifying glass on various items in the scene

  • Nothing interesting happens

Using Magnifying glass on the Magical amplifier

  • Player: Hmm, the dial is turned up quite high. There's a fingerprint on the dial!
  • Fingerprint match interface comes up
  • You have discovered a matching fingerprint.

Poking torches in Ikis Krum's house or in the Party Room

  • Player: I shouldn't play with fire.

  • The scene fades out and the Player leaves the crime scene

Talking to Party Pete[edit | edit source]

Prosecuting & Defending

  • Player: I'm investigating allegations against you for noise violations.
  • Party pete: That is so bogus, man. You can't legislate the party spirit!
  • Player: I just need to ask you a few questions.
  • Party pete: Go for it, man.
  • Ask about:
    • The party.
      • Player: What can you tell me about the party in question?
      • Party pete: Dude, the party rocked my socks clear off and back into my sock drawer! You could taste the vibe, and it tasted goooood. Like toffee dipped in joy sprinkles.
      • Player: So, this party was bigger than your other parties?
      • Party pete: All my parties are big, [dude/dudette]. It's party's natural habitat.
    • The noise.
      • Player: Was the party louder than normal?
      • Party pete: Not that I was aware of, man. The amp wasn't past 11 and nobody hollered a word of complaint. But when you're putting the 'art' into 'party' with your bootylicious dance moves, you're concentrating on the cowbells and not the decibels.
      • Player: So, it could have been louder, but you didn't notice because you were dancing?
      • Party pete: When I dance, the outside world disappears and there's just me and the groove, making out.
    • Your neighbour.
      • Player: Do you know the neighbour who brought these charges against you?
      • Party pete: Sure do. We used to call him The Krummerman, and he'd bring the house down with his bodypopping. Even I had to lean back, cross the arms and nod the 'fro. But then the bodypopping became partypooping, and he kept trying to shut us down. We call him 'The Man', or 'Mr. Krum' now.
      • Player: So, you believe he may have a grudge against you, which is why he filed charges?
      • Party pete: I dunno, duderino. I guess? No other explanation for wishing the party away.
    • I don't have any more questions.
      • Player: I don't have any more questions.

Talking to Ikis Krum[edit | edit source]

Prosecuting & Defending

  • Ask about:
    • The parties.
      • Player: This was your first recorded complaint against the Party Room. Was there something about this particular party that prompted you to file, or were the parties pretty much the same?
      • Ikis Krum: I'd just had enough! This party was particularly noisy and I was sick of the rowdiness and the...the snubbery.
      • Player: Snubbery?
      • Ikis Krum: Uh, yes. Some of those partygoers can be snobbish, rude and tend to...snub you.
      • Player: How would you know? Have you been to any of the parties?
      • Ikis Krum: No! Why would I go to any, when I can clearly hear them from my house? I've just seen people going to and fro, and I can tell they're snobs.
    • The noise.
      • Player: Can you describe the noise level for me?
      • Ikis Krum: It was very, very loud. I couldn't hear myself talking or thinking.
      • Player: Was that louder than normal, or was the level of noise common for the Party Room?
      • Ikis Krum: Louder than usual, I suppose.
    • Party Pete.
      • Player: Do you know Party Pete personally?
      • Ikis Krum: I may have met him, but I'd barely call him an acquaintance.
      • Player: How did you meet him?
      • Ikis Krum: I was at one of his parties... ...just to complain about the noise. I didn't do a single other thing there.
    • Why are you in jail?
      • Player: Why are you in jail? Party Pete is the one accused of a crime.
      • Ikis Krum: It's this absurd legal system! It seems that, since I'm a witness in the case, it'd be easier for the likes of you if I remained here until the court date. It's injustice! It's an infringement of my basic human rights!
    • I don't have any more questions.
      • Player: I don't have any more questions.

Talking to Megan[edit | edit source]

Prosecuting & Defending

  • Player: Hi, I'm investigating allegations against Party Pete for noise violations.
  • Megan: It's so sad that someone would take Mr. Pete to court. He would never hurt anyone!
  • Ask about:
    • The party.
      • Player: Can you tell me what the party was like that night?
      • Megan: Oh, it was a cracker! Mr Pete was dancing wonderfully and all the customers were really enjoying themselves. It was busier than usual, but there was barely anything different from most nights.
    • The noise.
      • Player: Was it particularly noisy on the night the complaint was filed?
      • Megan: I'll admit it was very busy, but noisier? I can't agree with that. I should know, the magical amplifier was right behind where I was dancing.
      • Player: And you checked it throughout the night?
      • Megan: Throughout the night? You try to serve, dance and check a complicated magical amplifier all night! I will say this: no one could have tampered with it while I was there, and our customers are too nice to do anything like that.
      • Player: Did you leave your position that night?
      • Megan: Well, I left a few times for a boogey, but not for long at
    • Your neighbour.
      • Player: What can you tell me about your neighbour, Mr. Krum?
      • Megan: So, that's who filed the complaint! Psssh, that man is...is...barely a man. I know why he's doing it, and it's certainly not because of the noise.
      • Player: What?
      • Megan: He's doing it because of me. He would come to the Party Room for the parties, but he soon started coming to gawp at me. I told him I wasn't interested, that I was in love with someone else, but that just gave him the furies. Once he found out I loved Mr. Pete - that's when he must have taken Mr. Pete to court.
      • Player: Does Pete know?
      • Megan: No! And please don't tell him. Mr. Pete loves the party with all his heart. That's why I love him, and it's also why he'll never be mine. If he found out then he might change - become someone else - and that would be an utter tragedy.
    • I don't have any more questions.
      • Player: I don't have any more questions.

Enter the court room[edit | edit source]

Entering the courtroom

  • Are you sure you're ready for court?

Trial[edit | edit source]

Commencement[edit | edit source]

Opening statement[edit | edit source]

Only if prosecuting.

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 would 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:
        • Choose your witness:
          • Party Pete
          • Ikis Krum
          • Megan, the barmaid
          • No one at this time. I would like to present physical 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)
    • Your Honour, I'd like to summarise my case.
      • Player: Your Honour, I would like to finish by summarising my case to the Jury.
      • (Proceed to 'Summary' below)

Presenting evidence[edit | edit source]

Fingerprint[edit | edit source]

Prosecuting

  • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, if I could draw your attention to Prosecution Evidence #1: A fingerprint found on the magical amplifier.
  • If player matched Ikis Krum's fingerprint on the Amplifier
    • Player: Unfortunately, you can see that the fingerprint belongs to Ikis Krum. I feel that everyone should know, even though it damages my case.
    • The jury disagrees with your argument.
  • If player matched Megan's fingerprint on the Amplifier
    • (Transcript missing. edit)

Defending

  • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, if I could draw your attention to Prosecution Evidence #1: A fingerprint found on the magical amplifier.
  • If player matched Ikis Krum's fingerprint on the Amplifier
    • Player: You can clearly see that this fingerprint belongs to Ikis Krum. At best, this means that Mr. Krum was trespassing into the Party Room to tamper with things that do not belong to him; at worst, Mr. Krum was trying to frame the Defendant. This doesn't look good for Mr. Krum at all.
    • The jury agrees with your argument.
  • If player matched Megan's fingerprint on the Amplifier
    • (Transcript missing. edit)

Magical amplifier[edit | edit source]

Prosecuting

  • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, if I could draw your attention to Prosecution Evidence #2: The magical amplifier.
  • The Prosecution presents the amplifier as evidence.
    • It amplifies sound.
      • Player: This piece of equipment amplifies sound. It doesn't reduce the volume of the sound, it only increases it.
      • The doesn't know what to think about your argument.
    • Ikis Krum's fingerprint is on it.
      • Player: Ikis Krum's fingerprints are all over it, which is quite confusing, since he complained about the noise level. Maybe he was attempting to turn the amplification down?
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
    • The volume was turned up to maximum.
      • Player: On close examination, one can see that the volume was turned up to its maximum. The maximum volume produced by this item is well above national noise limits.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.

Defending

  • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, if I could draw your attention to Prosecution Evidence #2: The magical amplifier
    • It amplifies sound.
      • Player: This piece of equipment amplifies sound. It shows that Party Pete is determined to increase the volume of the noise coming from his Party Room.
      • The doesn't know what to think about your argument.
    • Ikis Krum's fingerprint was on it.
      • Player: Not only was Krum's fingerprint found on the amplifier, but the amplifier was turned up to maximum. He can't have been turning the volume down, so we can only assume that Mr. Krum planned to frame Mr. Pete!
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • The volume was turned up to maximum.
      • Player: On close examination, one can see that the volume was turned to its maximum. Anyone could have done that, though: it could have been knocked by the barmaid, or it might be a technical fault.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.

Bat-in-a-box[edit | edit source]

Prosecuting

  • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, if I could draw your attention to Prosecution Evidence #3: A bat-in-a-box.
  • The Prosecution presents the bat-in-a-box as evidence.
    • This tool showed sound levels to be at a normal level.
      • Player: Using the bat-in-a-box at the crime scene, I determined the sound levels to be of a normal, legal level inside Krum's house.
      • (Jury reaction transcript missing. edit)
    • This tool showed sound levels to be too high.
      • Player: Using the bat-in-a-box at the crime scene, I determined the sound levels to be of an abnormally high level inside the Party Room.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • This tool is a bat...in a box.
      • Player: This tool is a bat...in a box. C-r-a-z-y! I can't think of a single use for it.
      • The jury doesn't know what to think about your argument.

Defending

  • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, if I could draw your attention to Prosecution Evidence #3: A-bat-in-a-box.
    • This shows the sound levels to be at a normal level.
      • Player: Using it at the crime scene, I determined the sound levels to be of a normal, legal level inside Krum's house. He had no grounds for complaint, according to current legislation.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • This shows the sound levels to be too high.
      • Player: Using this tool at the crime scene, I determined the sound levels to be of an abnormally high level inside the Party Room.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
    • This tool is a bat...in a box.
      • Player: This tool is a bat...in a box! Woah, I think my mind just blew.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.

Cross-examination[edit | edit source]

Party Pete[edit | edit source]

Prosecuting

  • Ask about:
    • The party.
      • Player: What can you tell me about the party in question?
      • Party Pete: Dude, the party was tubular! The dancefloor was as packed as a can of beans, except the sauce was funk and the beans were people.
      • Player: Human beans? So, this party was bigger than most of your other parties?
      • Party Pete: It was an 8 on the Party-Richter scale, dude! They're normally a 7.8, maybe a 7.9, and it shook the worries and cares right out of my head.
      • Player: Then you admit that your parties are raucous and turbulent on a regular basis.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • The noise.
      • Player: Was the party louder than normal?
      • Party Pete: I'm gonna say no. The amp wasn't past 11 and nobody complained to me. But when you're at one with the party, the vibe is all that matters.
      • Player: So, it could have been louder, but you didn't notice because you were dancing?
      • Party Pete: Like I said, man: when the party calls, you must answer.
      • Player: That's not very responsible, Mr. Pete. You are affecting the well-being of your customers and neighbours. If you're unaware of the volume level, how can you deny that it was too loud?
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • Your neighbour.
      • Player: Do you know the neighbour who brought these charges against you?
      • Party Pete: That I do, dude. Mr. Krum used to be superfly, a real hotstepper. That was till his smile got turned upside down and he began making plans against the Party Room. I can't figure what made the dude change.
      • Player: Perhaps he got tired of the loud noise. That would irritate anyone and force them to file a complaint.
      • Party Pete: I dunno, maybe you're right. But why would you want to shut the Party Room down, dude? It's the place to go where people know, and people are all the same. It's where everybody knows your name.
      • (Jury reaction transcript missing. edit)
    • That's all, for now.
      • Player: That's all, for now. Thank you.

Defending

  • Ask about:
    • The party.
      • Player: What can you tell me about the party in question?
      • Party Pete: Dude, the party was tubular! The dancefloor was as packed as a can of beans, except the sauce was funk and the beans were people.
      • Player: Human beans? So, this party was bigger than most your parties?
      • Party Pete: From my perspective, the parties are alway big, but this one was B-I-G in three capital, flashing letters.
      • Player: But the party wasn't any more noisy than your other parties?
      • Party Pete: Not that I know of, dude. It's hard to tell: I was riding into the dangerzone, pulling off some life-threatening dance moves all night.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
    • The noise.
      • Player: Was the party louder than normal?
      • Party Pete: I'm gonna say no. The amp wasn't past 11 and nobody complained to me. But when you're at one with the party, the vibe is all that matters.
      • Player: Surely you would have noticed if the party was too loud?
      • Party Pete: I wish I could agree with you, dude, but I can't. Fill the Party Room with jelly and I'd only notice the next morning, when it comes to tidying up.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
    • Your neighbour.
      • Player: Do you know the neighbour who brought these charges against you?
      • Party Pete: That I do, dude! I first noticed Krum when he jumped from the top floor to the dancefloor and landed in a split! Dude was a legend. That didn't last, though: he got the hump with the Party Room and began trying to shut it down. Couldn't tell you why.
      • Player: So, you believe he may have a grudge against you, which is why he filed charges?
      • Party Pete: Dude, I can't think of anything else. El Krummo must think that me and him are at war, but I'm as harmless as they come.
      • Player: Indeed. Why would a party-goer suddenly try to get the Party Room shut down? It seems to me that Mr Krum's motives are questionable.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • That's all, for now.
      • Player: That's all, for now. Thank you.

Ikis Krum[edit | edit source]

Prosecuting

  • Ask about:
    • The parties.
      • Player: This is your first recorded complaint about the noise at the Party Room, but parties take place there every week. What made you file a complaint this time round?
      • Ikis krum: Aside from the incredible noise and the rowdiness of everyone involved? Let's say that I reached the end of my tether, and had to take matters into my own hands.
      • Player: You say that the party-goers became rowdy?
      • Ikis krum: Yes, some of the party people can be rude.
      • Player: But you haven't been to the parties, right?
      • Ikis krum: Why would I go to them? I can hear the snobs clearly from my house!
      • The jury doesn't know what to think about your argument.
    • The noise.
      • Player: Can you describe the noise level for me?
      • Ikis krum: Very, very loud! Like an argument between banshees.
      • Player: Was that louder than normal, or was that level of noise common for the Party Room?
      • Ikis krum: It was louder than usual, I suppose.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • Party Pete.
      • Player: Do you know Party Pete personally?
      • Ikis krum: I might have met him in passing.
      • Player: How did you meet him?
      • Ikis krum: One time, in the Party Room... ...I complained about the noise. I complained fairly and calmly.
      • The jury doesn't know what to think about your argument.
    • That's all, for now.
      • Player: That's all, for now. Thank you.

Defending

  • Ask about:
    • The parties.
      • Player: The parties have been going on for years. Don't you think it's strange that you are only complaining now?
      • Ikis Krum: I'd just had enough! Everyone has their breaking point, and I finally reached mine. I was tired of all that noise, rowdiness and snubbery.
      • Player: Snubbery?
      • Ikis Krum: Yeah, that's a word, right? Those party people can be very snobbish and rude. Some will even snub you if you approach them.
      • Player: How would you know? Have you been to any of the parties?
      • Ikis Krum: Haha! Uh, no. Why would I go to them when I can hear them clearly from my house? I've just seen them and they look like they're top-drawer snobs.

    • The noise.
      • Player: Can you describe the noise level for me?
      • Ikis Krum: Imagine fifty or sixty people all screaming at the top of their lungs, and music played at a volume that drowns them out. That's how loud it was.
      • Player: Was that louder than normal, or was it common for the Party Room?
      • Ikis Krum: Louder than usual, I suppose.
      • The jury disagrees with your argument.
    • Party Pete.
      • Player: Do you know Party Pete personally?
      • Ikis Krum: I've complained to his face plenty of times, but I would barely call him an acquaintance.

Megan, the barmaid[edit | edit source]

Prosecuting

  • Ask about:
    • The party.
      • Player: Can you tell me what the party was like that night?
      • Megan: It was a wonderful party! Pete was on top form and could barely put a foot wrong. He had the crowd all attempting to spin on their heads. Such a sight!
      • The jury doesn't know what to think about your argument.
    • The noise.
      • Player: Was it particularly noisy on the night that the complaint was filed?
      • Megan: It was a little busier than usual, I'd say. I had fewer chances to take a break or pop to the loo, so I'd say that there was a good ten or twenty more people than usual.
      • Player: Did anyone have a chance to change the volume controls behind the bar?
      • Megan: Not without my knowing. Besides, our customers are too busy boogeying and having fun to attempt something so wicked.
      • Player: So, the volume of the party was set by Party Pete and couldn't have been changed by anyone else: therefore, Mr Pete was culpable.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • Your neighbour.
      • Player: What can you tell me about your neighbour, Mr. Krum?
      • Megan: Ooh, that man! Mr. Krum is possibly the most self-centred man you could ever meet. He's not after justice, he's after something else entirely.
      • Player: How can you possibly say that?
      • Megan: Trust me, he's far more interested in getting back at me. He ogled me every evening, and finally plucked up the courage to ask me out. I told him I wasn't interested, that I was already in love with someone, but he got mad and swore he'd get back at me. Once he found out that I love Mr. Pete, we got a court summons in the post. It doesn't take a genius to work out what happened.

      • Player: Can you tell me what the party was like that night?
      • Megan: Oh, you should have been there, you would have loved it! Pete got everyone attempting to spin on their heads, and people were falling over themselves and giggling. It was one of the best parties I've seen at the Party Room.

      • Megan: Well, I wouldn't go that far. I had an eye on the bar, to make sure no one jumped over to help themselves to anything, but, really, the crowd are too good-natured to steal anything or tamper with the volume.
      • Player: Did you leave your position at all that night?
      • Megan: A few times to dance with customers and once to go to the loo.
      • Player: Long enough that someone could have turned up the music unnoticed and then claimed the music was over the legal levels?
      • Megan: I suppose so! It's not hard to do.
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • Your neighbour.
      • Player: What can you tell me about your neighbour, Mr. Krum?
      • Megan: He's a self-obsessed, bitter, angry little man. He's created this circus just to get back at me. You see, he used to be a regular at our parties. We thought he was there to have a good time, but it turns out that he was just after me. He asked me out, I said no, and he didn't react well that I loved someone else. Once he found out it was Mr. Pete, he made it his life's mission to be a thorn in Mr. Pete's side.
      • Player: Mr. Krum holds a grudge against Party Pete and attempts to get his Party Room shut down through false allegations. A tragedy!
      • The jury agrees with your argument.
    • That's all, for now.
      • Player: That's all, for now. Thank you.

      • Player: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, I have presented evidence that conclusively proves the Defendant runs a reckless and illegal establishment. This is a risk to the eardrums of our children! Fun will often cause unhappiness for others, particular if that fun is loud, unruly and unsupervised. In this case, fun has brought unhappiness into the life of a neighbour, and we must defend that neighbour's basic human rights.

      • Player: adies and Gentlemen of the Jury, Party Pete may bring joy to a lot of people's lives, but that comes at the cost of a good night's sleep and some earplugs. Besides, a place like the Party Room could attract all sorts of troublemakers.

The prosecution's case[edit | edit source]

Only if defending.

Summary[edit | edit source]

  • Prosecutor: My case rests on these points: A magical sound amplifier was found in the Party Room turned up to maximum. Also, the bat-in-a-box sound detector showed the levels of noise in the Party Room to be well above regulation. I called Party Pete to the stand and asked about the party. He admitted it was raucous and turbulent, in fact he guaranteed it. I then called Megan, the barmaid. She stated she didn't see anyone tamper with the magical amplifier which means the level must have been set by Party Pete.

Full case[edit | edit source]

  • Prosecutor: Members of the Jury, I am going to present you with evidence that decisively proves the Party Room is a public disturbance and breaks noise-level regulations. First, the magical amplifier. At the crime scene, a magical sound amplifier was found with its volume level turned up to maximum.
  • The Prosecution presents the amplifier as evidence.
  • Prosecutor: Next, the bat-in-a-box sound detector. Using this tool to test sound levels, I determined that the sound levels inside the Party Room were above regulation levels.
  • The Prosecution presents the bat-in-a-box as evidence.
  • Prosecutor: The Prosecution calls Party Pete.
  • Party Pete is called to the stand
  • Prosecutor: What can you tell me about the party in question?
  • Party Pete: Dude, it was tubular! The vibe in the room was almost spiritual, like I was shaking my tail feather with Saradomin.
  • Prosecutor: So, this party was bigger and more active than most of your parties?
  • Party Pete: All my parties are 'active', dude. Once you let the party off the leash, it's liable to bark, knock over furniture and lick your face.
  • Prosecutor: So, you freely admit that your parties are raucous and turbulent on a regular basis.
  • Party Pete: That's a party guarantee, or your money back!
  • The jury agrees with the prosecutor's argument.
  • Prosecutor: The Prosecution calls Megan, the barmaid.
  • Party Pete is dismissed. Megan is called to the stand
  • Prosecutor: Was it particularly noisy on the night the complaint was filed?
  • Megan: It was busy, but no noisier than usual. I should know, the magical amplifier sits behind the counter where I work.
  • Prosecutor: And you checked it throughout the night?
  • Megan: Sorry, what did you say?
  • Prosecutor: AND YOU CHECKED IT THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT?
  • Megan: Not really, but no one could have changed it without my knowing. Our customers are too nice to do anything like that.
  • Prosecutor: Then the noise level was the same all night, and couldn't have been tampered with easily. Mr. Pete must be responsible for it being too loud.
  • 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 Party Room had noise levels above the legal limit and that Mr Krum was correct to report Party Pete.
  • Megan leaves the stand
  • Prosecutor: Parties are meant to be fun, not disruptive to the rest of the community! It's time to put an end to this reckless behaviour.

The defence's case[edit | edit source]

Only if prosecuting.

Summary[edit | edit source]

  • Defender: My case rests on these points: The fingerprint of Ikis Krum was found on the magical amplifier. Also, the noise levels within Mr. Krum's house were within regulation, so he couldn't have been bothered by the noise. I called Megan, the barmaid, to the stand and asked about Mr. Krum. She had turned down his advances and believes he wanted to get revenge on her. I then called Party Pete. Mr. Krum used to be a frequent customer, but suddenly became a 'Grade-A party pooper'. This sudden change brings into questions his motives for filing against Party Pete.

Full case[edit | edit source]

  • Defender: Members of the Jury, I am going to present you with evidence that decisively proves Party Pete is innocent. I would first like to point out that the fingerprint of Ikis Krum was found on the amplifier! The Prosecution would like to hide that from you, since it proves my client did not alter the volume level. The noise levels inside Mr Krum's house were in fact within legal regulations. So, his complaint about the party being too noisy becomes questionable: unless he was at the party, in which case he has lied about his location. The Defence calls Megan, the barmaid.
  • Megan is called to the stand
  • Defender: What can you tell me about Mr. Krum, your neighbour?
  • Megan: Ooh, Mr. Krum is a nasty, twisted man, and he'd make anything up to get back at me. *Sigh* You see, he used to come to the Room for parties. He'd ask to dance with me, and would send the odd compliment my way. I told him I wasn't interested, that I was already in love with someone else, so he got mad and swore he'd get back at me. When he found out that the 'other man' was Party Pete, he wound up taking him to court.
  • Defender: Mr Krum holds a grudge against Party Pete and attempts to get his Party Room shut down through false allegations. How tragic!
  • The jury agrees with the defender's argument.
  • Defender: The Defence calls Party Pete.
  • Megan is dismissed. Party Pete is called to the stand
  • Defender: Do you know the neighbour who brought these charges against you?
  • Party Pete: Affirmative, duderino. Mr. Krum used to be totally happenin', and you couldn't pry him from the dancefloor with a chisel. Since then, he's become a Grade-A party pooper. I dunno what happened, man.
  • Defender: So, you believe he may have a grudge against you, which is why he filed charges?
  • Party Pete: I dunno! Why would anyone want to stop the party? That's like banning smiles, or taxing winks. Dude, it's immoral.
  • Defender: Indeed. Why would someone who once enjoyed the parties suddenly try to shut them down? It seems to me that Mr Krum's motives are questionable.
  • The jury agrees with the defender's argument.
  • 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.
  • Party Pete leaves the stand
  • Defender: Party Pete is a local businessman, bringing light to the lives of people in Falador. These accusations against him are unfounded and are clearly the product of a malicious agenda.
