    Hmm but the bounty was placed by the Marquis, not the court, and I still can't think of any crime Guybrush would have committed while on Flotsam.
    She went after Guybrush when Marquis contacted her so my guess would be she doesn't even know of any other bounty.

    So unless she's turning him in to Marquis, she's some ace up her sleeve or then some unknown event takes place before they reach Flotsam.

    Apart from releasing the pox in the first place (yeah, they'd be mean about that), firing cannonballs, breaking glass unicorns, stealing glass breakers,using a fake ID to enter a private club, starting a bar fight, throwing bombs at the single ship, disturbing the peace and injuring a captain? Yeah, Guybrush was a good boy on Flotsam, hah.

    Besides, I think most courts are willing to hold a wanted pirate.

    The pox was pure accident and there were no witnesses for breaking the unicorns nor stealing the horn. Seizing the ship was more of a entertainment as far as I know; the townsfolk built the ship so that everyone had a chance to become captain. The fight was due to his pox ridden hand which he could easily prove. Moreover if people were to sue each other in a piratetown every time a fight would break out, they would need more jails than residences.

    I think your taking things a little too literal. It wouldn't be hard to pin the blame on guybrush. He knew the "death cloud" was the Pox of LeChuck as soon as he saw it, so theres a connection there, and youve made a double-sided argument there itself. If he had the pox, he was innocent of the fight but they'd probably just as easily blame him for the outbreak. If he wasn't at fault, he did the punch up himself.

    Lets face it, a few things went topsy turvey on Flotsam the instant Guybrush washed up on shore and punched a guy right in his "Poor Pirate Nose". More often than not, most people are keen to look for a scape goat than anything. (And if everyone's guess is right and his lawyer is Stan, I can't see how any plea of innocence will help him.)

    Sure so you agree the law on some forsaken Island wouldn't be even close to the laws we have nowadays.

    The pox is another matter, but I don't follow your point:

    "He knew the "death cloud" was the Pox of LeChuck as soon as he saw it, so theres a connection there, and youve made a double-sided argument there itself."

    Well, I cant remember a law that punished people with hanging and drawn and quartering... but then again, Monkey Island isn't set in this day and age.

    As for my point, wouldn't GT being able to correctly identify it as the pox prove he had some prior entanglement with it? Anyway, six of one, half a dozen of the other. If your a wanted pirate on one island, your pretty much a wanted pirate by the law on any island. (MI4 settled that with the policeman decided to check Guybrush's history "just to check to find out what you've been up to." Threepwood was looking pretty nervous until the cop decided he looked too harmless to be a threat.

    Exactly: While you considered firing a cannon and fighting against law, I'd say you were refering to today's world.

    Just having something to do with the pox doesn't mean you're the one to blame, eh? It all began while he was trying to get rid of LeChuck, the most notorious evil zombie pirate. I'd blame Lechuck for simply extracting the pox free. But if you could prove it was Guybrush who released the winds, now that would be another thing.

    Aye, but since the visit at Lurce Island it's been loong time and they'd get on his trail now? More than mere Police I'd expect Morgan to be at his throat for that.

    I think your taking this a tad too seriously there, mate...

    Oh it's all speculation here, what's with that? Just trying to understand wut you meant.

    EDIT: Takun, hug? :(
