    "Yes Miss Orlaine?"
    "I-I'm not feeling so well...I am so s-sorry to say this, but could you finish with the testing here? I-I have to go home a tad bit early today."
    "Oh it's no worry! I'll take care of the labs while you are gone!"
    "Thank you so much! I-I promise to m-make it up t-to you!"
    "Umm Miss Orlaine? Are you sure you can get home?"
    "YES! OF COURSE I CAN GET HOME!"

    Welcome! One and all to ROLEPLAY ON TRIAL!!!: an Ace Attorney/Gyakuten Saiban-style Investigation/Trial roleplay? Complete with Crime Scenes, Coffee Breaks, Smexy sprites, and Arguing! Yes who doesn't like arguing!

    In this particular and most peculiar case, It seems our dumb-looking doggy friend Devon Denali has smashed out the lights of this prestigious, well-known lab professor Lisa Orlaine with a bat, on the side of the laboratory around yesterday afternoon. It is most obvious that Devon's the killer and this trial will go very quickly, right? I mean, we have witnesses, credible evidence, and the finest prosecutors in the land, no?

    I guess how smooth this case will go all depends on the Lawyers that take the stand either FOR or AGAINST this poor puppy!

    (and yes, we can have as many Lawyers on these cases as I so please)

    Now before you start your arguing, there ARE quite a few things you will need to know about the case:

    <The Rule Page>
    <The Interest page>
    <The Character Sheet Page>
    <The Case File>
    <The City of Furkan San>
    The City of Furkan San (open)

    The City of Furkan San is VERY different from the rest of the world, and most EXTREMLY something very weird and eye-popping, so for all you newbie lawyers out there, here is some need-to-know stuff about the current situation of Furkan San.

    1. The court system differs just a tad bit in that up to five Lawyers can work for either side, to ensure almost maximum coverage of the case with little corruption among st the lawyers themselves, the jury is halved for minimal bias, and a one-day grace period is given to lawyers to compile evidence that may have been missed.

    2. Furkan San got really popular with the city's advances in science in both transgenic crops, animals, and humans! Which stirs up much controversy, especially that of the latest success which put the company Anitek on the map and the spot-light. The major success? Succesful gene-crossing and accepting between humans and some domestic animals, such as dogs and cats, which result in people like our suspect floating around in the city.

    3. This, of course, was highly controversial and stirred up many hate groups against these animal-people, Anitek, Furkan San, and genetics as a whole. The most effective/interesting group out of the bunch would have to be the G.A.H (Give Animals Hate) Group, which has a firm hold within Anitek's main competitor, Ginentek, and even in Anitek itself.

    4. Shawarma Joints are very popular around Furkan San, So I hope you like your food rolled up!

    ~Le Rules~
    ~HEED THEM WELL~
    1. Keep any arguing in IC, I do not want terrible relations coming on you guys over some RP!

    2. With that being said, Keep IC chats Civil or you will be THROWN OUT in contempt of court for civil disobedience

    3. Iwaku and Court standard rules apply to this IC

    4. Romance is kept at PG-13

    5. Rules may be changed by announcement of the GM

    6. PM me before deciding on having a Neutral role

    7. Only 5 lawyers allowed per side, and only 4 Neutrals allowed in the RP (5 if someone wishes to play Suspect)

    8. If I have the Wright to throw Lisa Randell and Anthropomorphic Creatures into this case, and change names of them, then you sure as heck have the Wright to be any Canon character from Ace Attorney or ANY universe for that matter, so long as it isn't TOO weird, and does not involve any of the Witness/NPC Sprites! (That being Young Ema Skye, Security Guard Larry Butz, Lana Skye, Angel Starr, any Aotsuki's and Damon Gant)

    9.Posting speed should be once a week, as Trials go in Turns, and if the one side brings up an interesting point that the other side cannot prove in a week, than the winner becomes the side with the point, and the RP ENDS! So keep it going with your counter attacks!

    10. Finally, I do not care with posting length so long as it brings up a point, or that the post has meaning to respond too, if it's something useless like *character one waves* then I am smiting it >:D

    11. Have fun arguing and OBJECTing with care!

  3. I'd really like to join this, just a question. Would other's footage of the game be decent as experience with Ace Attorney, as I have none myself? I, ahem, can do research, that's probably by biggest strength in this roleplay, I on the other side don't really have experience with courts either, but again, that can be learnt!

    Guess who's gonna marathon Judge Judy...

    Also, sprites, no problem.
     
  4. Honestly, I think that the intro's a bit of to much Bark, you don't really need much prior info, but I think watching a video is an absolutely GREAT IDEA AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! (in fact, that's what got me into AA myself :3)

    So yeah! Do whatever you feel is necessary to give you the edge in court!!!

    Even if you do not know anything about the game or Court of Law, It'll still be fine, one can just shoot a message of anything they need, from a debriefing to a relaxing back massage...I'll be there!

    Here's an educational video about how ace attorney works...to a humurous degree:

  5. Hey! @Librarian Cat

    Thanks for reminding me, I completely forgot about this. I can make someone of the prosecution~ Thing is, I wanna draw all of my pictures from "Objection" to their own sayings. Is that okay?
     
  6. TOTES!

    so long as they mean similar things!
     
  7. Yay! Hopefully I can get this done by today~

  8. One thing about the CS; in the Trial Record section, do I make up cases he's been in, or are you looking for other roleplays like this, or...

    And just a disclaimer: The sprites and name of the character isn't mine. The artist is credited in the sprite sheet.

  12. NOPE! ^^ You make up whatever case you wish! No Prior RP experience required ^^
    I'm not one to mind that, but I thank thee for bestowing credit where it is needed.
     
  13. Accepted! And are you really drawing up Mila?
     
  14. Bruh, Leon seems like an amazing guy actually, I cannot WAIT to see his prosecution!!! ACCEPTED!
     
  15. Yup. Thing is I can make like... Nine different still image poses and have it done by tomorrow, but if I want to animate this all, it'll be weeks before it's all ready.
     
  16. [​IMG]
    Since I am no artist...PROPS TO YOU, DAWG!!! Do whatever it is you wish, whether u want it static sprites or animated sprites doesn't bother me, since I am using both, just my only pet peeve is if the sprites are huge and kills computers, because I cant post if my comp is dead ;-;

    ~ONTO A DIFFERENT SUBJECT @YALL~
    Would you like to start with just the three of us? Do you wish to invite anybody into this roleplay? Or do you want to wait until we reach a certain number of each side?
     
  17. Tbh I really don't mind either.
     
  18. If you got anyone to invite, please do! The more the...angrier I guess :3
     
  19. I'll see if there's anyone I know on here that could be interested. In the meantime, I sugggest waiting for more.

    Thanks for accepting me!
     
  20. Will do capt'n
