A New Salem

A New Salem

0 INK

It's 2011. Young girls and boys have been accused of witchcraft and are being hunted down. They have power beyond their wildest dreams and are in more danger than they can imagine. Will you help save them or be the ones hunting them? the choice is yours.

778 readers have visited A New Salem since PandoraBox created it.

Introduction

The Salem Witch Trials were a blotch on the history of America because of the way they were advertised. People saw those accused as completely innocent and the punishers as sick killers. But what if the story was flipped? What if people today believed that witches were evil in the way of the Puritans? It is all too dependent on the way the story is told.
A very powerful man realized this. Arnold Quentin was inspired to lead his own crusade, because he knew that, if he spun it the right way, it would win him positions in even higher places. With his own personal motives, Quentin started a movement against the modern-day witches, people with powers even they didn’t understand.
It started as only calling them out of the shadow to reveal them to the world. Then, he advanced to say that they were dangerous to themselves and the people around them. This scared the nation, and that fear turned to hate. Witches (both male and female) were facing discrimination and even violence. Then, it took a turn for the worse. Witches were being hunted down and killed all across America. Parents disowned their witch children. It became modern-day witch trials with Quentin at the helm.
There are people who weren’t brainwashed, however. There are people who want to help. They call themselves the Protectors. Those who help witches face the same punishment as witches. However, there are also the persecutors. Witch hunters are at large and travel in teams, using the best technology to track down those with magic and kill them.
Who are you? A Witch? A Protector? A Witch Hunter? The choice is yours.

GUIDELINES (MUST READ):
  • So, here’s the deal. You could be a witch who is also a Protector. However, if you want to be a witch who is also a witch hunter, you need a good back-story that gives a solid and probable reason that you would turn on your own people. You don’t, however, HAVE to be a witch to be a Protector or a witch hunter.
  • ALSO, if you are a witch, you must choose ONE main power/ability. If you want to have one or two smaller abilities that’s fine, but they can’t be as strong as your main.
  • If anyone wants to be Arnold Quentin, PM me first and we’ll work out somethings he would do, however, he can be non-essential.
  • I expect this roleplay to be literate. I won’t set a minimum or maximum for post size, but NO ONE LINERS. Be descriptive and keep the plot moving!
  • Feel free to PM me with any questions, suggestions, or anything else your heart might desire!

#, as written by Veren
The two girls both expressed their curiosity about Sara's powers, so she figured, why not indulge them. After waiting for them to finish talking, she spoke up.

"Blood." She said abruptly, and ominously. Thinking on that though, it did sound rather creepy and random, so she began to elaborate.
"I have power over human blood. It's how I relieved the pain in your nose" She said with a motion to Emily, "and to force you still" she finished with a nod to Lucy.

A lot of things have happened in the past few hours, and she was having some thoughts. Why, though she has had many opportunities, had she not acted and killed these two witches? Why had she saved the girl, when she could have let her die? She had these thoughts, but continually told herself that she was doing it for trust and information.

Now she was curious about Emily's 'idea'.

"So, tell me, what is your idea, Emily?"

Micheal drew his hood down, he scanned the streets as he walked, faintly tensing up every-time someon glanced at his curiously. No doubt if he didn't get hom soon uneeded followers might pick up on his trail, never stopping had its benefits. Though sometimes one tended to either run into the exact thing they were trying to avoid, or missed something that warrants concern. Neither of these things would happen to Micheal as he made his way back to the safe house. He took a short-cut through a series of streets, and a network of alley ways. This would prevent any persuers from following him via automobile.

Faint traces of blood were still on his hands from when he touched the left side of his head, to asses the damage. A decent sized cut lanced across a portion of his scalp within his hair line. Micheal wasn't too concerned about this though. Head wounds always bled profusely. He crossed into another alley way, and stopped himself before he turned the corner into another side street. Micheal had combed through a good distance of the town. Now within sight of the safe house Micheal breathed out a sigh of relief.

He reached the house, and stepped inside. He padded up the stairs, and into the bathroom, washing the blood off of the side of his head over the sink. He washed his face, and continued to quickly dry off with a towel.

Walking back downstairs Micheal sat on one of the old arm chairs with his hand inside of his jacket, and on his gun. His eyes were glued on the front door. His eyes were on high alert listening for a window opening or the back door swinging open. He would wait one hour before he got back out there. One hour was all he was willing to wait before he would comb the city for Emily, and the others if they were with her.

lucy stood up and pulled the ribbon from her hair. the night was still quiet and peaceful but is was getting slowly getting colder.
she shivered slightly
"so whats the plan?" she said as she rubbed her hands together and smiled at the other two girls. she watched the blood manipulator carefully lucy didn't trust anyone who had that much power especially people who had used it against her.
checking her watch she waited for Emily's plan.

First off, I LOVE this idea, and If I knew you, I'd LOVE you.
