12 Angry Dudes

A lot of what happens on the Vine revolves around crime, whether you are fighting crime or committing crimes. Yet we rarely ever dwell on what happens after the bad guy gets defeated, or who takes the blame when the villain gets away with it. Well, I've got two words for you, Comicvine:

Jury duty.

That's right, you've been called up to be on the jury of the latest headline-grabbing, head-scratching mystery to hit the nation! Never before in the history of the judicial system has a jury consisted of such a large variety of ninjas and supermen! Will you vote guilty or not guilty? Has the victim been framed or will he get away with it? How will any of you possibly go five minutes without beating each other's brains out?!

Justice will be served! But today, you're going to have to put on a different kind of suit...

Rules

  • As the name indicates, this is an RPG for 12 people. First come, first serve.
  • If anyone becomes inactive during the RPG, they will become an NPC and I will assume control of their decisions.
  • You don't need to make an alternate civilian account for this, your normal account will do fine.
  • This will take place in the United States of America, so it is preferred that your character is a US citizen (or is disguised as one!)
  • As opposed to the usual action-based RPGs around here, this should be a more intellectual, dialogue-heavy affair. If you have superpowers, you can't use them; if you have a sword, you can't stab the other jurors.
  • The objective is to end up with a unanimous vote for either guilty or not guilty. In the OP I will present the available evidence and the testimony of the witnesses. The evidence presented in the OP is the only evidence you will have to go by, you can't make anything up on the spot, you must stick to the facts.
  • If your character is a genocidal maniac with no interest in anything other than the death of humanity... this probably isn't the RPG for you... >_>
  • Have fun! Good, honest, intellectual fun! :D

Oh and for some reason the rules were a better read than the OP >_> Strange man <_< OP was fun though, but the rules gave it character xP

@pro_nelson: Haha, yeah it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I thought I'd see if this was something people were interested in doing :P

Still, the thing about writing is sometimes to improve you need to take a step outside your comfort zone. This might not be something you think you'd be very good at, but I still think you should try it ;)

I agree, This isn't even fighting and adventure stuff. Just simple writing of situational events. I actually like stuff like this but I'm myself personally am all over the place so it would be weird lol. Still like I said great great idea !

Anyone else think this might get out of hand, like a stabbing or a spontaneous dancing or something, IDK I haven't read the rules yet.

@pyrogram: I hated jury DUTY, when I had to go in for the selection process. It would have been cool to be on a case.

@shadowswordmaster: @cellphonegirl: Welcome aboard :)

Only 5 more slots guys!

@crimson_eagle: Watched it last year as part of a movie marathon. Wasn't that excited about it because it beat one of the movies I wanted to watch.

IT BLEW MY MIND. It's just so freaking clever. It's 12 dudes in a room together, talking. Takes something special to make that exciting. The last 10 minutes or so were just GENIUS.

#40 Posted by Crimson Eagle (1817 posts) - - Show Bio

@_eclipse_: Just the fact that they're unveiling the case as they talk made it clever, it was just amazing.

@_eclipse_: Is this cannon or non-cannon? Absolutely no superpowers? Not even enhanced senses that could tell me if they are lying?

Either way I have to serve jury duty.

#45 Posted by -Eclipse- (7507 posts) - - Show Bio

@darkknightdetective: I'd like it to be canon, but realistically this is probably gonna have to be non-canon.

And no, you can't use any cheating techniques like that. You have the evidence and you have your brain, just like in a normal jury, lol

#46 Posted by Dark_Vengeance_ (14587 posts) - - Show Bio

@_eclipse_: How do you explain 12 heroes/villains serving jury duty at the same time?

I had to ask. I always wanted to pull a Daredevil.

#47 Posted by CellphoneGirl (18826 posts) - - Show Bio

So I have to have CPG be smart. This is going to be tough :P

"She may be innocent, but I know for a fact she is guilty for that bad haircut."

@cellphonegirl: My character is probably going to want to kill her.

"Is she really that plastic?".

@cellphonegirl: My character would want to kill yours for being so superficial.
