By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.

Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.

Cool idéa. Can I reserve the brother of the victim?

Re: On Trial

This RP reminds me of Ace Attorney :). In memory of Phoenix, could I reserve the defense attorney?
