** It gets even worse. Mona's death was no accident--she was actually ''murdered'' by [[MadArtist Folie]], holder of the Pictomancer Asterisk. And that's not all she does to Wiswald. She not only uses Mona's death to manipulate Roddy, Lily, and their friend Galahad, but she also uses the power of the Earth Crystal to overrun Wiswald with trees, leaving many people homeless in the process. Not only that, but she also murders countless adults, leaving countless children without their parents. And why does she do all that? [[EvilIsPetty To obtain the paint needed for her painting--normal paint does not work for her]]. Needless to say, the party is horrified and disgusted when they learn about Folie's machinations, and for good reason.

** What's worse is how willing the first woman is to clear her name and prove she isn't a fairy. The populace has been conditioned to see the Judgments as just, some because they genuinely believe everyone pushed off was a fairy, some because they think that their friends and family will be proven innocent anytime now and return to them, and some knowing ''exactly'' what is going on and being too scared and powerless to stop the blatant assassination of dissidents and random people to convince the public the trials and church are necessary. The nameless NPC falls under the second classification, and seems confident, if a bit scared, that the one the Rimedhalers worship as a God will swoop in, save her, and prove that she is truly human. And Gwydion, in his advanced age, can do ''nothing'' as his beloeved followers throw themselves off a cliff but send out Gwilym and hope the Heroes of Light get to Rimedhal quickly.

** For context: The party reaches Rimedhal just as a Judgement is taking place. The person on trial is a nameless NPC who allows herself to be walked off the edge of a gaping abyss with absolutely no protest. The party is, understandably, completely horrified that not only that this has been allowed to continue, but that everyone goes about their day like nothing happened afterward (only two of the locals disagree with what happened--the brother and the father--but it's too late to do anything about it by that point). When the party returns from Serpent's Grotto, we get to see another Judgement, and it's even worse because we see the build up. A young woman named Margaret comes to the aid of a civilian accused of being a fairy, and Bishop Helio barely has to say anything to get the assembled crowd to turn on Margaret, leading to her arrest. Up on the platform overlooking the Jaws of Judgement, we get to witness a terrified young woman beg for her life as the guards and the civilians--her friends and neighbors--close in, forcing her to fall off the edge. All while the crowd ominously chants, "May the Lord of Dragons watch over you. May the Lord of Dragons watch over us all".

* [[AdultFear Adult Fear]] seems to be a running theme in Wiswald. A sidequest has the party look for a little girl who went to find a special flower for Gloria. Upon arriving, Gloria and Elvis see [[NothingIsScarier one of the little girl's shoes and drag marks on the ground.]] Then a monster shows up with the other shoe in its ''mouth''. Thankfully the girl was just hiding, but it's a surprisingly cold reminder that the monsters you fight would have no qualms about doing the same to you, should they defeat you.
