Members of the Mercenary Community,

I have in custody the High Witch Doctor Sha'Grot who seeks clemency in the killing of mercenaries on a hire off world that originated in the Broken Lands. The Magistrate for the Broken lands was present so in the name of impartiality I will be doing an investigation in to the matter.

It is worth saying the Magistrate and another's testimony both corroborate Sha's own chain of events so I will be giving a short 48 hours to provide any other testimony prior to a verdict on this matter before the Weeksend.

Many Thanks

Is this for the four killed indirectly by his incompetence in believing that an illusion had weight or the two he killed whilst under a domination?

Or perchance for all six??!!

Is it not a bit obscure that a tribal creature who is not part of the empire has been arraigned for apparent crimes (already forgiven by his victims) committed in a land and plane not under empire control nor even aware of the empire?

Yuurei

In short, no.
Sha'Grot is part of these rules for very good reason. A mercenary can participate in a sanctioned hire, safe in the knowledge that if betrayed by a fellow mercenary, punishment and retaliation against that outlaw will surely follow. I am certain it has prevented many unnecessary killings and kept many a would-be killer from carrying out their slaughter. Rather than question these rules, you should be grateful they protect you

Hang on! Why is this oni thing allowed to talk? Shouldn't someone cut its head off?

I really hate oni! They are like rubbish versions of a true Troblin, they always think they are dark and spooky but always cry like a baby goblin when you stab them with a jade knife.

Down with the oni! All hail the dressing gown!

Statements seem silly. He made a mistake with the plane object thing, doing a thing we agreed as a group eh should go off and do solo. It's not like he sneaked off and did it without our backing.

He was possessed for the other two. Unfortunately in this case, Sha'Grot is cunning and resourceful; they stood no chance.

Simple.

Thank you Mr Drake but we were not hired merely a group that agreed to go see what was happening.

I agree that laws keep people safe and should be abided by.

I see that Oni are now allowed to insult the Daimyos of Amlas. Such disappointment in Amlas, for so many reasons it would seem. I guess Radah General of the shadowlands will sort this problem.

Thank you all for the many responses, I have reviewed the evidence and it is all much on the same line as expected from the Magistrate in attendance.

In the instance of killing multiple people while performing a solo objective I find this to be a simple case of mercenary incompetence, there was clearly no ill intent and none of those killed seem to hold Sha'Grot responsible beyond this being a mistake. I urge members of the mercenary community to remember that incompetence on this level is judged on a case by case basis and will not always be judged so generously especially where there is doubt over intent. I would however remind Sha'Grot who I know to have divination powers to be more cautious in future and if need be use confirmations.

The second instance of outlawing is from a clear case of possession coupled with the fact he is a devious and capable killer made him very effective under said possession. It has been reported that those killed wished him no ill will at the time although one has since turned on the wheel. In this instance I find Sha'Grot not guilty of intentional murder but as someone who is an accomplished killer I would urge him to focus his efforts on Disciplining his mind in some way to such attacks, Magistrates in future instances of you being possessed may not be so generous. As such I suspend this sentence for the period of 1 year to be reviewed IF any further murders are committed by Sha'Grot under similar circumstances by the presiding Magistrate.

In summary the automatic outlawing by the seers is hereby removed. I have also been made aware in line with Tribal Traditions Sha'Grot has already paid Weregild to those affected.

No Branwen’s coat, I am actually an imperial seer. Sanctioned by the empress and her inquisition, I have the paperwork and everything.

Me and Sha have a... special... relationship... hence why I bantered. It should be said that I genuinely am impressed he handed himself in and all should follow in his footsteps.
