Didn't see *that* coming!
Whatsoever, for any cause, seeketh to take or give
  Power above or beyond the Laws, suffer it not to live.
Holy State, or Holy King, or Holy People's Will.
  Have no truck with the senseless thing, order the guns and kill.

... The HELL?!! Wasn't Anton Sherwood very much ALIVE the last time we saw him? If he was indeed murdered, I'd put "Nappy" at the top of the list of suspects. "Nappy" DOES have an axe to grind (or rather a sword to sharpen) concerning Sv. Sherwood.

I saw it coming.  (So why didn't I duck?)

I'm suitably astonished by this turn of events, even though we were warned a situation of this nature was upcoming. Presumably, Emily hppened on the duel without realizing that it was a duel.

Emily Rose has confessed to killing him, but not to murder. It might have been accidental. It might have been self-defense. We'll soon find out.

And why would Pierre be angry at Sv. Sherwood? He merely provided a venue for his 'affair of honor'. I'd think he'd be more PO'ed at cousin Guy for accepting the terms of the duel, not warning him, and making him a laughing stock. Of course, his marbles aren't wrapped too tightly, so . . .

Duel? What duel? There was no duel.

  Power above or beyond the Laws, suffer it not to live.

I also find it odd that Sv. Rosenberg, likely being a witness, did not recluse himself.

I wish more judges would recluse themselves.

Gentlemen, the word is recuse [re-QuZ]; no "L." A recluse [WRECK-loose] is a hermit or a spider.  ::)

Sandy, I'm pretty sure Bob G knew that.

Or maybe judges should be "re-clued," i.e., given a new clue.  ;)

Looks like she's claiming self defense, or to be precise, defense of a minor.

Pierre WAS angry at Sv Sherwood because Sv Sherwood was laying down rules of engagement that were humiliating (in his mind's eye) to him, and he took it personally.

Edit: When I first heard the duel would consist of blacksmith's hammers, I thought that they were going to be required to craft something, and then Pierre would have his goods taken away "for the greater good of humanity" while the other duelist would go by Ceres rules..

Oh well, it's Sandy's story after all.

Well, this is why you always need to tell your friends that yes, you do sometimes enjoy people beating you.
