The Seizure and Trial of Accused Witch: ARTEMIS

Part I, Creative Logic:
The Goddess of the Hunt is running scared! Recent allegations of magick have been disputed by her thus far, but we fear that is no longer the case. Early this morning, screenshot paparazzi caught sight of her fleeing into the forest dressed fully in Black and Lime, colors which everyone knows to be associated with the very blackest forms of witchcraft.

Wanted:
Artemis, goddess of the hunt is wanted in conjunction with the alleged use of magick and practicing the darkest forms of witchcraft known to Puzzle-kind. Suspect is armed and considered extremely dangerous. I should know...

10k Reward:
Anyone with further information on the suspect is encouraged to come forward (protection will be GUARANTEED![size=10]*) Information recieved will be reviewed on a case by case basis, the reward being given only to the best proof of her guilt.[size=10]+) Information submitted MUST be recieved 24 hours before a trial to give prosecutors sufficient time to review any evidence.

[size=10]* No guarantees
[size=10]+ Valid sources of proof include, but are not limited to: Forum posts, Chat Logs, Historical References/Data or anything else really, assuming sufficient humor or reasoning (Accuracy may be checked!)

We will not have any burnings without a proper trial! Then the burning.

Part II, Treasure Ship
In Bobs's valiant duel with the Accused on Alpha Island he managed to momentarily shift the winds of Change in our favor with a crushing blow. In her evil rage she banished the poor lad, but while doing so, she didn't notice Edward, who snuck behind and pulled a scrap of paper from one of her many chthonic pouches.

We believe the letter was intended for her minions, if we can decipher it, we may know how to intercept her.
Artemis wrote: 
Make ready to fly! I call upon your black skills in defense of my estate in this world.

With all my power and the Names of your Fathers I summon thee Northern Gales! Attend to me at the eighth hour past Witching this Day of Tius!
And in the mean, prepare your tides, Black Waves, to guard the gold in a sea of red! In Woden's Time I call to thee for aid at five past the Canon's Nones!


Part III, Court Illustrations
The logic is coming along well, but now, with all these purported acts of witchery, I fear the illiterate masses require a medium with more punch than our mere words. And the image is worth a thousand.

Post here or send me your faithful visual depictions of the Accused at her most diabolical. A painting is like a witness, only better!

The best illustration will win a noteworthy prize, should we attain a Conviction.

Part IV, War!
On Thursday, June Third, at 3:05 PDT, the foul witch Artemis and all her forces of darkness shall descend upon the isle she seems mad enough to think should be hers: Winter Solstice. Perhaps in vengeance against Ninjaguy who first revealed her secret? Perhaps because the island was once hers and her crafty ego cannot abide another master?
We care not for the reason why. We care instead for the poor souls upon that rock and the thousands all over the Ocean who may be next!
Join with us! Defend what was rightfully won and perhaps we may even capture this Witch and end her evils once and for all!

Update:
A glorious battle it was! Thanks to all who helped! You all fought bravely!
In her villainy, the Witch came aboard our vessel to curse and distract us in our hour of need. She duelled with me while all about us the ships were firing and sinking. And for her vanity she paid! Down went the Flying House, with Artemis and myself with it!
Now, I, being a normal mortal, merely floated to the surface, but Artemis the accused Witch was deprived of her powers! She now awaits Trial under lock and key.


Part V, Trial
Sunday is a good day for witch-trying. Unless they are unseated in their prowess, Rubyspoon and Ninjaguy will be prosecutors. But Artemis needs a Defense! Post your Logical arguments here to argue for the Accused at the Trial!

Re: The Seizure and Trial of Accused Witch: ARTEMIS

It is clear, my friends, that Artemis is a witch.


Her crew name is "WWS!" Everyone knows that stands for "Wicked Witch of the South!" Everyone knows how evil she was.


If she was to pay her jobbers, she'd only pay them a measly 1/2 a share of the booty. But she doesn't pay her jobbers! She has a 100% crew cut! EVIL! Her ship is named "Black Catfish" doubly evil!

While attempting to subdue her, she cursed me to lack of breakers. Yet this was not the only incident of this nature: in a battle against a drunken distinguished swabie yesterday, I was woefully embarrassed in the same manner! If she could curse me to lose in the past, then she surely is evil.

She also used a spell to disconnect Bobs after a simultaneous display of poor sportsmen and swordsmanship. Also, in further news she cursed someone with FREE PANTS! Pants-OF EVIL!!

Update: she also was spotted on a broomstick!


Her minion, Baldur, who misguidedly sought to defend her was pitifully armed with only a stick. A stick of evil, mind you, but a stick nonetheless. Perhaps she armed her minion with such a weapon because it was a magic stick OF EVIL!


She also boared the ship called "Naughty Moonfish killer" that name is THREE WORDS LONG! A clear display of abuse of powerful magik!

Case closed!

Burn her! Burn her!

Re: The Seizure and Trial of Accused Witch: ARTEMIS

Hmm... have you any visual aids to make this case more compelling? Have any of you? Keep building that evidence!

Re: The Seizure and Trial of Accused Witch: ARTEMIS

She has Crew cut at 100%.
She calls everyone Fool's.
She has her shares maxed and rip's off the jobbers.
And she looks liek a witch with her costume.
And I caught her on a ship called Black Catfish and was caught on a broomstick.
She loged me off as I was the only one to defeat her in a duel.
Her crew name is WWS meaning mabye Wicked Witch of the South.
She told someone to go jump of a pier.
Bobs shouts, "Once again ye log me!" She replies by saying Artemis shouts, "Enough! I'm away to curse ye vessels!"
Found on the vessel Naughty Moonfish Killer.

Re: The Seizure and Trial of Accused Witch: ARTEMIS

Well, I saw her on the docks at Winter Solstice. I lost a swordfight to her and my standing seems to have gone up! Now, if that's not witchcraft I don't know what is.

She was standing right on the edge of the pier. I crept up behind her, shouted boo and she didn't jump at all. I expected her to fall in the sea. Now, me doing that is enough to scare anyone. Only a witch would not flinch at all.

I will get you!

Re: The Seizure and Trial of Accused Witch: ARTEMIS

Hmm... I think I was at Alpha, but I'm sure she was at WS when I caught up with her. Strange! She's put a confusion spell on me.

Re: The Seizure and Trial of Accused Witch: ARTEMIS

It would appear that Artemis has been using a broomstick - definite evidence of her beign a witch, I would say!

Re: The Seizure and Trial of Accused Witch: ARTEMIS

Remember that Logic is even better than direct evidence! If anyone can infallably prove her guilt with Logical discourse, that should seal the case!

She spelled broomstick wrong, too! And as we all know, witches can't spell!

Burn her!

It is Posedion

I think it is Poseidon.

He rules the ocean and the letter talks about protecting her home with the black skills (ship). The black ship protects the ocean with its flying around.


It has to be Poseidon!

Re: The Seizure and Trial of Accused Witch: ARTEMIS

Artemis just got on board the ship I'm jobbing on, cursed us, and blessed the brigands we were fighting.

But we got KB when we whupped them, so maybe she shouldn't burn. Maybe she's a saint!
