"The EVIDENCE before the court is Incontrovertible; there's no need for the jury to retire! In all my years of serving I scarcely ever saw A pris'ner more DESERVING the FULL PENALTY OF LAW!!" What a marvelous Van Horne sculpt. The fleshy, overexaggerated features, the enormous, "Ghostbusters"-style jaws and flapping spectral jowls, the expression of imbecilic malice, the billowing cloud of ectoplasmic vapor. (It's a BIG chunk of metal for your money, too.) This was clearly a pompous, entitled, corrupt, bullyragging, ranting, overbearing soul in life--and death has not made it any better. Albert Finney probably plays his voice. Since this is intended for an Early Modern Era game set somewhere probably in the later Stuart period, and since the bloody Black Assizes and the unrighteous conduct of Judge Jeffries and his like are a recurring theme in the ghost stories of Sheridan LeFanu and M. R. James, a vindictive Hanging Judge or bloodthirsty magistrate seemed appropriate. Slapped together a juridical wig and 17th-century collar from Green Stuff and made a wire noose. He's here to pronounce Sentence upon you, and does not care in the slightest if it's commensurate with your misdeeds. You must be guilty of SOMETHING, or you wouldn't be here!
