Description summary:
The description varies depending on the .

Description
0 - Common LawThe guild representatives thump the desk in appreciation. The judge gives them a stern look, but they are undeterred. "We'll get what we're owed. And that poor corpse will get his journey."
20 - Cedar TrialThe airs of the courtroom have a charged, energetic atmosphere. The Matron gave her word. She will honour it, one way or another.
30 - Marigold MethodsThe gondoliers are slightly more familiar with the Methods. They understand the verdict long before the Matron. She sits, stunned – though whether that's due to the result or the toll the proceedings have taken remains unclear.
