The town is filled with the gossip of its residents and curious outsiders. The perimeter of the courthouse is filled with familes having picnics, as if they're at a fair or celebration, rather than a trial determining someone's future. If I could call it anything, I'd call it a circus..... the players were performing for the crown, and the crowd stood in anticipation of something that was already expected.
