What Would Be Your Tragic Fate In 1600s Salem?

Would you be caught for witchcraft? Or does your personal narrative have something else in store...?

If you do something wrong, what's more important?

How good are you at keeping secrets?

Are people inherently good or evil?

Hung for Practicing "The Devil's Magic"

That's right, you heard us, WITCH. No offence. You're a smart person, which naturally attracts some unwanted scrutiny and attention in the midst of the Witch Trials in good ol' Salem. You're just conducting your business as usual when goody two shoes Abigail tells the preacher you hexed her as revenge for a childhood dispute. Rude, unfair, but what can you do: when you're accused of being a witch, that's that. You made it to 16, so you had a good long life!

Publicly humiliated for Adultery

This one's a bummer. You didn't /actually/ do anything wrong, but word flies in this little town of Salem, and when people think you're doing the nasty, it's a BIG DEAL. And you thought reality TV was bad, now your whole life and secrets are exposed to your friends and family, and you're forced to walk through the town with a red letter "A" pinned to your clothes, so no one can forget your sins. Well, "alleged" sins.

Stabbed by Reverend Parris

Didn't see that one coming, huh? You thought you'd stop by the church for another 1 on 1 session with the man upstairs, but caught the good man of faith keeping company with an accused witch. This couldn't do, she was set to hung but here she was spending some alone time with the most respected man in town! You naturally go to tell your neighbors (gossip was all they really had for entertainment back then), and found yourself stabbed in the back by Parris himself. Guess the thou shall not kill thing was just a friendly recommendation. Bummer.

Drowned in the Town Well

Drowned in the Town Well

Well, this is a little embarrassing. Your spouse asked you to fetch a pale of water from the well, and you humbly oblige. Dinner would be incomplete without some water to go with that quail, right? Anyway, as you pull up the bucket from the well, a mysterious figure bumps into you and pushes you in. Was it on purpose? By the time you look up the shadowy man is gone, and before you can figure out why that just happened, it's too late. Not the best way to go, maybe you can blame it on a witch to feel better.
