Mayhem City's Reckoning:House of Laws [MayhemMetaVerse]

Postby Ajac on Mon Feb 09, 2009 8:07 pm

At the center of Mayhem City, a shining-ish city in a beautiful-ish land, formed from the leftover and ubiquitous bits of the firmament of Mayhem Metaverse, lies the great central square, where a quarto of semi-interconnected buildings stand, referred to officialy as Gold Square and colloquialy as The Public Palace, or Palaces. Three sides of the square are taken up with Che-Impara University, Mayhem U.'s longtime rival, the Grand Assembly Hall, and the Central Police station; the center of the square was taken by a statue titled 'Creation of the Comic', but with The Bunny Lord having declared Mayhem independent of EGS, it's future was uncertain. While the other three are equally impressive and important to the culture and/or administration of the City and the daily running of the Republic, let us focus for now on the altar of Mayhem City's legal rites: The House of Laws. It occupies almost the entirety of the southern part of the square, and was modeled on Eastern temples, showing a combination of styles stretching from the eastern Mediterranean to India and hints of lower China. It's great bronze doors were adorned with images of the great makers and givers of laws, Moses and Hammurabi, Solomon and twelve toga'd men representing the Roman Law, Kahless with his code of honor and Mandos pronouncing his Dooms. This building, beautiful and full of gravitas, will play host to but the opening acts of today's drama, and when the sun has risen tomorrow, the world shall not be the same where it rose today.
The lights come on, the set is down
The curtains pulled away!
Now all you creatures of the Night
I say it's time we play
the strange things that in your life
you never dreamed you'd know
and now before the ghosts arrive
it's Welcome to the Show!

A bus drove up, depositing a few denizens from various places around Mayhem, to a bus stop on the south side, near the House of Laws, which is exactly where Xepharon wanted to be, though many of the people getting off of the bus went their own separate ways, some to pay homage to the statue in the center of the square, which Xeph nodded to the still model of the Great Squirrel. The majority of people went off to the university, tough a scant few, like himself made their way to the House of Laws. Those people all looked important, many in suits, or dressed in their own regalia from their own metaverse. Xeph was in a decorative kimono, his sword, which did not quite match the kimono, being that it was a single-handed longsword rather than the more befitting katana, was upon his left side of his waist.

The building itself was very ornately decorated, and reminded Xepharon of something he had seen only in books. He approached the main doors, unsure of where to go beyond there. He somewhat lingered, wondering if Ajac had made his way here yet.

Xeph was a bit startled to the woman hurrying in his direction. She spoke hurriedly, or at least, that's the way it seemed.

"Excuse me, I'm Molly McGee, freelance reporter, are you anything to do with a trial here?"


"Err..not that I'm aware of...I'm here for...something else." Explained the raccoon tailed man in the kimono. He wasn't about to say just WHAT the reasoning was, what with the whole deal being secret and all until public announcement by Ajac. He was hoping that he wouldn't have to give a speech today though, even if he did have something of one working in his mind just in case. So many things going in his mind; He was a bit anxious.

Molly looked depressed "Sorry, sorry, I've just been waiting out her for the past 2 weeks, hoping something would happen, sorry" She turned and walked back to where she was sitting, slow enough for him to ask her a question before she left.

(( :roll: :P :o :grumble: :-? :smug: :-| ))

A red-headed man wearing a black trenchcoat strolls by the entrance of the House of Laws.

Huh. Something big must be going on. Well, wouldn't hurt to go watch.

He turns towards the building, and as he does so, the butt of an M9A1 pistol can be seen in a holster on his right hip.

Waiting Room
*Ms Westonbury, who has been here all this time, sat viewing the case details, drinking her coffee and wandering if she had time for another cigarette. Just then the door opens, causing her to look up*

"The trial is about to start, Ma'am," says the young man at the door. "If you would like to fully me?"

"Ah, very good," replies the elf.

A tall thing man looking to be in his early 30's was taking a quiet stroll through the square. He wore a green, short sleeved button-up shirt that was left open in the front, show that he wore a t-shirt underneath. The t-shirt was green as well, and was printed with a celtic tree of life. He carried no visible weapons, and he didn't look ready for trouble.

A 19-year-old anthro-skunk girl alighted from the bus, and looked around. She wore a sweatshirt with "MAYHEM U." on it in block letters, and carried a tote bag.

This is the place," she said to no-one in particular. "I can practically smell the Plot building up here."

After a moment to get her bearings, she headed for the House of Laws.

Xeph eyed the clock on a nearby mini clock-tower, while waiting.

Hmm. I thought as much. I must be early. For something as big as Ajac has going, there aren't enough people here yet. Ugh, what am I going to do to kill time...? He though to himself as a female skunk person made her way up the steps to the same building he was sitting at. The place was busy enough already, but still. For a plot build....like he had thought, there weren't near enough people for such an announcement, character or NPC.

He leaned back in a bench he had just moments ago sat down in, fiddling with the sword so that it would sit comfortably. Not succeeding, he frowned, pulled the sword and scabbard away from his kimono, and poured a small amount of magic into the blade, so that it would revert to the shape of just the small green gemstone that sat on the pommel. Xeph doubted he'd be able to take that inside anyway, considering that a military high ranking official just came by and turned in a weapon. He pocketed the stone in a safe pocket, looking at the clock again. What would he do in the meantime?

The redheaded man is stopped by a guard. Sighing, he pulls the M9 out of its holster and leaves it in a crate. He then reaches into his jacket and withdraws an M4 carbine, drawing a blank stare from the guard. This too, he places in the bin. He divests himself of the ammunition, then continues inside.

The skunkgirl stopped by the guard station, and seeing the red-headed man surrender his weapon, frowned in thought. Seeing the raccoon-tailed man using magic on a sword, she turned around and headed back to the bench, and sat down beside him.

"Hi," she said with a smile. "So, are you going to be a player in this upcoming event, or are you just a spectator like me?"

((Heh, Chatin or Cilke? ))

Xeph looked upwards thoughtfully. "Well, depends on how you look at it I guess. I'm just along for the ride, you might say." He replied, giving no real hints about what was coming up after the trials. "He did, however, offer a hand in greeting. "I'm Xepharon Del-Zier."

The rail-thing man, walked into the House of Laws, as if wandering aimlessly. He stopped behind the skunkgirl and Xepharon, running his hand through his mid-length, blond hair.

"Yeah...big is...not quite the word for it." He said, frowning and looking down. How long was Ajac going to be anyway...Xeph didn't recall Ajac mentioning a time. Just "Today".

"I didn't realize plot had any particular odor." He absent-mindedly commented in addition to his thoughts. Waitaminute...plot? This person was aware as well? Well at least he didn't have to worry about saying things that didn't make sense. Something big though. Oh yes. Something big indeed.

A glint can be seen from the sky as Alex flies towards the House of Laws... Likely going a bit too fast as well.

"Okay, too fast! TOO FAST!"

He hits the ground in front of the building and bounces, then begins spinning in midair. He hits the ground one more time and rolls for a few moments across the cement before skidding to a stop in front of the doors.

After another moment passes he attempts to get up, but then quickly decides to just lie there.

"Owwwww..."

She quickly leaped to her feet, and rushed over to help the... whatever he was. "Are you all right?"
