This is an open letter of invitation to prepare an Ace Attorney team of no more than 2 persons who will struggle together to unveil the truth in a Phoenix Wright-style courtroom brawl. Battle through testimony by shoving evidence in everyone's faces. Explore the wonderful world of the Seacat world as you search for scraps of paper you can call evidence. Despair as the prosecution piles on the evidence contradicting the innocence of your client.

Above all, of course, your client is innocent.

I'm currently fact-checking and compiling resources to present as much fun as I possibly can. The game will proceed as follows:

I will create four threads. One thread will be Court Records, where I will present all of the items accepted into evidence by the court. Another thread will be Collected Evidence, which is evidence that hasn't been formally accepted but which may be used. You cannot present items that were not posted in collected evidence, of course. Testimonies go in both these cases, too.

The third thread will be the game thread. All posting by players is done in the game thread. The players form the defence team, and so act out the role of defence attorney. Their task is to cross-examine witnesses, and through the process of cross-examination and presentation of evidence, they refute the claims of the prosecution. At any point during the court, the court may adjourn and the players are given the chance to investigate by doing some legwork. At that time there will be a thread for the investigation phase.

It's going to take some time to gather a solid case and present it to the players proper, and there'll be some kinks to work out as I transition NDS games to imageboard format, but I figured I'd check if there's any interest before even going forward with most of the groundwork.

Did you just mean resources like backgrounds and sprites in this sentence here? Since the way it is worded it sounds like it would just be the DS games, with the same cases, presented in imageboard format.

As always, my interest in every new gameboard is unwavering as they become rarer and rarer. The idea sounds fun anyway (if it's not the same cases I've read). Expanding the clarification, I was wondering if the two players on the team each have a similar or different role?

Presumably, s/he is just talking about properly translating the style of the DS games into something that would work as a forum game. It would be pretty pointless if it was literally exactly the same story.

I would definitely be interested in taking part. I'm guessing that the two-person team is meant to replicate the lawyer/assistant dynamic from the games? I think it's a good idea to limit it to that in order to keep things less chaotic, but depending on how many people are interested, it might be difficult to narrow it down to two people.

Upupupupu! What would be the point of a gameboard with the solution already known? This'd be a 100% original crime scene! That's why I'd need time to get everything together!

Between defence attorney and defence attorney, the factual difference is zero!

If there's so much interest two can barely contain the excitement, we'll just have to kill someone else afterwards and have you solve that! There's an endless supply of victims, after all... upupupupu.

I'd appreciate it if you guys could formally decide who the defence attorney team is going to be! If you guys have interesting ideas for it, I miiiiiiiiiight consider taking up only the role of judge, and letting one party be the prosecution... Upupupu. But it's just a passing thought...

Well, fine! I'll take all three of you on then as the defenders! I'll be ready soon, so sit tight and prepare for a trial of life and death!

Actually I never confirmed that I'd play, but I guess if we are all on the same team then that may be fine. I'll just be Rika and Camphor's backup or something.

Anyway, is it not possible to keep everything contained in one thread? You can quote posts in order to keep evidence organized and also use bold to show different information after all.

Sounds good. My participation may be spotty in the beginning, whenever I'm assuming that is, but I'll try my best.

Our client is innocent, so anything else presented is obscuring the obvious.

I'm inclined to agree with Ozaki. At the very least, two different threads for evidence is definitely an unnecessary amount of clutter. You could easily list both types in a single thread, sorted into two separate lists. But even then, you probably don't even need a thread at all; I think you could just use the first post of the main thread for evidence listings, editing it as we go.

Upupupupu! Well, if you guys prefer it that way... I can make it happen.

However, I can't actually edit anything because I'm not a mod, so I'd prefer to keep a separate thread for the evidence.

Upupupu! Although I've an exciting idea for a Prosecution vs Attorney battle, there's no way to keep a Phoenix Wright-esque element as guaranteeing a suspect's innocence in. I'm thinking of what to do right now with that, but going on with writing out a case that can be solved with just the Attorney's side of play. It just involves me playing prosecution, judge and witnesses, which is a tiresome and thankless job but Monokuma is the hidden hero behind the shadows, combating the poison that kills witches tirelessly! Even without appreciation!

If there's any suggestions to make Attorney vs Prosecution as two player camps work, I'm open to ideas. I already know how to set up witness questioning, but I am stuck on investigations and how to determine a suspect. Especially when people already know the guilty/not guilty status of the suspect. Upupupu!

There is an edit button now you know. The little green pencil thing in the corner of all posts.

Close enough.
