Nauplius found guilty in posthumous trial !

Gutter Press reporting from Palas, where the sensational posthumous trial of infamous capsuleer Nauplius has just concluded.

As has been widely reported on the IGS in recent days, the heretic Nauplius was accused of a number of gross crimes, chiefly heresy, but also murder, blasphemy, sacrilege and treason.

Leading the accusations was Duchess Odelya d'Hanguest, at whose palace the trial took place. Surprising many fashion commentators who had expected an ornate gown, the Duchess chose the uniform of a State Protectorate Brigadier General for the occasion.

In a highly charged trial, Duchess d'Hanguest repeatedly denounced Nauplius and his actions, at one point asking the corpse "What do you say to all this?", before exclaiming "You may stay silent! But this silence will only be construed as a sign of your guilt!"

Several other participants in the trial also made accusations, including the murder of one million slaves, a crime to which Nauplius had confessed on the IGS.

WIth none chosing to speak in defence of Nauplius, colourfully described as a "Heinous tergiversator and despicable heretic" by the Duchess, the accused was found guilty, and was sentenced to be stoned and burnt, as an example to all.

The assembled participants then cast stones at the accused corpse, before it was removed, to be transported to the Palas star, where it was incinerated by weapons fire, without any further ritual or ceremony.



Most sharply dressed person at the trial, was Steffanie Saissore of Stormcrows, wearing a custom gown, made by a Luminaire seamstress.

The most meaningful thread the IGS has seen in about 3 years.

Poor Mister Nauplius. I'd say he would be missed, but we all know better that he just could never redeem himself of his crimes.

Rest in peace Mister Nauplius and hope you can make new friends with the litte red monsters and their pointy pitchforks.

And a State Protectorate uniform? As little respect as I have for the cereal box ranks the STPRO gives us, I don't care to see the uniform used this way.

For the first time since I started the conversation, he looks me dead in the eye. In his gaze are steel jackhammers, quiet vengeance, a hundred thousand orbital bombs frozen in still life.

If you're going to make a mockery of civilized institutions like law, courts and such you might as well go full out and do it while mocking your allies, yes? Good grief this is silly.

Well that's one way of dealing with the day after that I've never considered.

I'm not sure how to feel about this "trial". My Gallentean upbringing makes me abhor this as nothing more than a sham and a pretext to find the accused guilty before carrying out the predetermined verdict and sentence. My practical side sees it as pointless as the capsuleer in his current clone is still very much alive and free to carry on committing atrocities.

However, the part of me that appreciates dark humor and satire applauds this news. Good job Pilot d'Hanguest.

When the world is running down, you make the best of what's still around.

To be fair he resisted arrest. Most people killed by "law enforcement" don't receive a trial. By Amarrian standards this is very progressive justice.

Ms. d'Hanguest is from the Khanid Kingdom. The slave butch is a heretic and an exile. The Empire was in no way involved with this.

Is there any explanation for her choice in garb? Throwing rocks and burning a corpse aside, why did she wear a STPRO uniform?

I was afraid this trial might have descended into farce.

I am glad to see that this most definitely did not happen.

What an utter sham and a farce!

A total affront to the Matari lives that he's spent and will continue to spend.

Didn't you want the body to be burned?



I for one appreciated the event for its intended purpose: an opportunity to take out your anger on a monster for their crimes against humanity, in a manner in which they can offer no resistance. Detractors ignore that the point of such a sham trial is catharsis for those still alive to be angry at the criminal's previous deeds.

It is only a shame that another cloned copy is still at large and still committing atrocities.

I am most sad that Aracturus wasn't present as the Defense Lawyer.

A Minmatar warship is like a rusting Beetle with 500 horsepower Cardillac engines in the rear, armour plating bolted to chassis and a M2 Browning stuck on top.
