Judges and JuryDelta Green¿s Task Force T.I. screwed up. They were in Myanmar, deep in the undeveloped hinterlands. The operation went south, people died, and something monstrous escaped¿perhaps with the aid of an agent from the task force.Now they¿re the operation for a new team of agents. The players¿ Agents must hear testimony from the survivors of Task Force T.I., decide exactly what happened and who¿s responsible, and recommend a course of action to Delta Green¿s leaders. The testimony plays out scene by bloody scene. In each flashback, the players temporarily take the roles of the members of Task Force T.I. The players get tips on how to play them based on their individual personalities and prejudices¿and, more importantly, the ways that their teammates remember them behaving. Memories of overwhelming terror are rarely accurate. But memories are all Delta Green has to go on if a further horror is to be prevented.¿The Star Chamber¿ is a complete scenario for Delta Green, the role-playing game of Lovecraftian horror and conspiracy. It features six ¿secondary¿ Agents, ready to play in the flashback scenes. It is playable with the full rules in Delta Green: Agent¿s Handbook, or the quickstart rules in Delta Green: Need to Know, available from Arc Dream Publishing. Learn more at delta-green.com.

The Star Chamber was an English court of law that sat at the royal Palace of Westminster from the late 15th century until 1641. It was made up of Privy Councillors, as well as common-law judges and supplemented the activities of the common-law and equity courts in both civil and criminal matters. The court was set up to ensure the fair enforcement of laws against prominent people, those so powerful that ordinary courts would never convict them of their crimes. Court sessions were held in secret, with no indictments, and no witnesses. Evidence was presented in writing. Over time it evolved into a political weapon, a symbol of the misuse and abuse of power by the English monarchy and courts. The ceiling of the chamber in which the court convened was supposedly painted with a representation of the night sky, including stars, so that the accused could gaze upon the decorated ceiling and contemplate his place in the universe.

An excerpt from the beginning of the Introduction: THE Court of Star Chamber "is now," says Lord Coke, "and of ancient time hath been called the Chamber of the Stars, the Star Chamber, the Starred Chamber, in respect the roof of the court is garnished with golden stars. In all records in Latin it is called camera stellata." The Council itself, whether Parliament was sembled or not, held its sittings in the "Starred Chamber," situated in the outermost quadrangle of the Palace, next the bank of the river, and consequently easily accessible to the suitors, and which at length was permanently appropriated to the use of the Council. "The Lords sitting in the Starre Chamber" became a phrase. Lord Bacon, in his "History of King Henry VII., thus writes of the origin, authority, composition, and jurisdiction of this court: "The authority of the Star Chamber, which before subsisted by the ancient common laws of the realm, was confirmed in certain cases by Act of Parliament. This Court is one of the sagest and noblest institutions of this kingdom. For in the distribution of courts of ordinary justice (besides the High Court of Parliament) in which distribution the King's Bench holdeth the pleas of the crown; the Common Place, pleas civil; the Exchequer, pleas concerning the King's revenue; and the Chancery, the Pretorian power for mitigating the rigour of law, in case of extremity, by the conscience of a good man; there was nevertheless always reserved a high and pre-eminent power to the King's Council in causes that might in example or consequence concern the state of the Commonwealth; which, if they were criminal, the Council used to sit in the chamber called the Star Chamber; if civil, in the White Chamber, or White Hall. And as the Chancery had the Pretorian power for equity, so the Star Chamber had the Censorian power for offences under the degree of capital. This Court of Star Chamber is compounded of good elements; for it consisteth of four kinds of persons; counsellors, peers, prelates, and chief judges: it discerneth also principally of four kinds of causes; forces, frauds, crimes various of stellionate, and the inchoations or middle acts towards crimes capital or heinous not actually committed or perpetrated. But that which was principally aimed at by this act was force, and the two chief supports of force, combinations of multitudes, and maintenance or headship of great persons." "It is the most honourable Court," says Lord Coke, "our Parliament alone excepted, that is in the Christian world, both in respect of the Judges of the Court and of their honourable proceeding according to their just jurisdiction, and the ancient and just orders of the Court. For the Judges of the same are (as you have heard) the grandees of the realm, the Lord Chancellor, the Lord Treasurer, the Lord President of the King's Council, the Lord Privy Seal, all the Lords spiritual, temporal, and others of the King's most honourable Privy Council, and the principal Judges of the realm, and such other lords of Parliament as the King shall name. And it is truly said. Curia cameras stellatae, si vetustatem spectemus, est antiquissima, si dignitatem honoratissima. This Court, the right institution and ancient order thereof being observed, doth keep all England quiet."
