Description summary:
The description varies depending on the Format of Trial.

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.

Defeat for the Gondoliers!

The Matron blinks, a little confused, as the gondoliers storm out of the courtroom. "I... I won?" She clears her throat, dusts the soot off her shoulders, and corrects her posture. "But, of course. Good sense prevails."
