Introduction

The year is 1696, five years after the Salem witch trials. A few towns over from Salem things are starting to awry. The leaders of the town are starting to suspect that the same evil forces that took hold of their sister town has come to their doorstep.
To the great dismay they had begun a witch hunt.

Unknown to all but the clan members the witches were indeed among them, most high up in status.
They have become very good at hiding their true nature and are now running the hunts, turning the people who would see them hanged against one another.
But hiding has become difficult, a famous witch hunter has come to the town and is snooping out witches.
you have three options to stay alive;
Run:
By running away you avoid the hanging tree but as a punishment for abandoning your brother and sister witches you are shunned by all other witches and forced to live out the rest of your wretched life all on your own without a friend in the world.
Fight:
When you fight for your life and freedom you are not only putting your life on the line but also the lives of your fellow witches. Be careful what you do and say, don't give up your clan.
Hide:
Hide what you really are and practice your craft in secret, but be warned, you will live in fear of the hanging tree at the edge of town for all of your days.
Don't get caught, help save your clan, and if you must instill a little terror into the hearts of the villagers who would do you wrong.

Hunter
Witch hunters are cruel men and women who will stop at nothing to see a witch hanged, even if it is not really even a witch at all. Torture is their favorite means of getting a poor soul to confess to being a witch. They are quite cunning and are very good at figuring out how to find a witch.

Towns people
The towns people are all scared out of their wits and paranoid. To them anyone could be a witch, even their neighbor.
The towns people are very quick to accuse someone of witchery even if the only this the accused is guilty of is being a little odd. A lot of the towns people are sheep and will fallow anything their town council and witch hunters say.

Witches
The label of witch is applied to someone who practices people believe influence the mind, body, or property of others against their will. It is believed that witches draw their powers from the suffering of others, this would be untrue. A witch derives his or hers powers from the earth around them, the cycle of the moon around the earth, and the animals that inhabit their lives.
Not all witches are evil, some want to heal and help others. While some want only to cause pain and suffering to the people that wronged them.

The hunt is on.
Who are you?
One of the hunters?
Or are you one of the hunted?

Jezebel had been working all night and was still not tired. She looked around the small room and sighed, she needed a few more herbs to finish her potion. Quickly she cleaned everything up and put everything that could be incriminating into her secret hiding place. After she had made sure everything was away in case someone decided to come looking for her, Jezebel slipped on her shoes and headed out to the woods. It was still quite early and no one was awake yet.
Jezebel found the herbs with ease and decided instead of going straight home she would walk through the woods for a while, she looked the woods, she always felt strangely at home here. She walked to a clearing not far from the town and watched the sky as the sun rose into the sky, and cast it's arms out over the land, warming the earth and giving her light as well.
"It really is beautiful..."
She whispered to herself as she continued to watch.
After a while she began the walk back into town and to her house. People were awake now, she could hear the sound of cooking coming from different houses. The smell of food in the air made her stomach growl with hunger!

Jacob awoke with the sun and quickly got out of bed. He pulled on his boots and quickly walked out of his house. He began his day with a brisk walk around the perimeter of the town, searching for any strange activity or signs of witchcraft. The last "witch" he had found had been a prostitute.
She hadn't really been a witch, the only magic she could do was sleep with as many as ten men in under two hours.
Jacob was convinced otherwise!

Paige's eyes cracked open as sunlight started to filter through his window, "Ugh why does the sun have to be so bright?" he groaned as he climbed out of bed and went through his morning which involved, bathing, putting on his clothes and jacket, finally going to his kitchen for his usual breakfast of eggs and bacon. Paige looked over to his counter and frowned, he was out of his morning tea, "Well I guess it's that time again. Damn addiction." just like his fields needed fertilizer and water to grow, Paige needed his tea to function in the mornings. So with that being said he grabbed his wallet and left, making sure his door was closed and secured behind him, before walking towards the market.

Charlotte was the kind to embrace the day but not particularly eager to hunt for all the witchy signals in her small town especially when they weren't always there to be noticed, she wasn't a detective just a hunter equipped to murder them if they posed a threat. Or so she preferred. She leaned against her house sighing out contently, watching the people pass with a warm greeting smile and nod of acknowledgement. Today should have been a good day. So she wished anyway.

Lina and her sister woke hours before their mother and most of the town had so Lina could give Emily her daily lesson. She'd been secretly teaching her sister believing that she should begin the practice at a young age like Lina had. She had began practicing with Emily for a few months now and already Emily was showing promise of being a very talented witch. When Lina heard faint noises of people waking, including their mother, she began hiding the things they'd been practicing with back in their place seemingly not been touched at all.

Her mother disapproved of not only Emily practicing witchcraft but also Lina. Ever since what happened in Salem her mother forbid her to practice until it had blown over only to find it coming to their town. It scared her mother so much she hid everything associated with witchcraft and for almost a year Lina couldn't find them until Emily began getting curious about it. After Emily found the items they began practicing again.

"Lina!" Her mother called as she entered the barn "There you are, I've been calling you didn't you hear me?"

"Sorry Mama, what did you need?" Lina asked hiding one of the items behind her back. She hadn't had enough time to hide it before her mother found her. "Go to the market and get the things on this list. Hurry back." Her mother said before making her way back to the house without noticing what she was hiding.

"That was close" Lina said turning to her sister and handing her the item "Finish hiding them, make sure to hide them well we don't want people finding them." She ordered Emily before heading off to the market. She looked at the list, it was small compared to most times she sent Lina to the market.

In the Blackbriar household there were very few true moments of peace. In the dead of night, and the early of morning were at the center of those moments. While his weary young brother slept fitfully, Vincent restlessly stayed awake, unwilling to fall asleep while his mind replayed certain events over, and over again. Of course come morning Vincent would awake, bleary eyed and confused - he had fallen asleep unknowingly, and now suffered from aches and pains caused from falling asleep sitting up.

He listened closely for the sound of his brother, but heard nothing. Still asleep probably, though Vincent knows it will only be a matter of time before the boy wakes up. So Vincent goes about his morning duties as quickly as possible, eating a few pieces of stale bread to calm his stomach and changing out of his old ragged clothes into something more suitable to wear into town. By the time he was ready to set out his brother was awake, and already rummaging through the kitchen in search of something to eat.

"Theres bread on the table," Vincent says.

"Its stale." His brother answers, face scrunching up in disgust.

Vincent shrugs his shoulders, "Better than nothing, we can go to the market later."

He grabs his work boots from the floor and puts them on. Not in much of a hurry as he doesn't really have much work today.

"Where are you going?" Nathaniel asks, now stuffing his cheeks with the bread.

"Into town, I've got some business to attend to." Vincent answers, keeping his tone light as to not betray his lie. He moves to his younger brothers side and ruffles his hair, "Don't go getting into any trouble while I'm gone." Once his brother nods his head in understanding Vincent leaves for his trip into town.

Jezebel had gotten back to her house before to many people had walked out of their houses. Once she was inside she ate a few pieces of bread and an apple and then quickly brushed herself off.
Making sure there was no dirt on her she grabbed a list of things she needed from the market and her basket.
She walked out of the house and as she began her walk to market tied a small black hat onto her head. She rising sun was bright and the hat kept it out of her eyes and kept her long raven hair back out of her face.
As she walked I to the marketplace she saw many people that she knew and smiled and gave pleasant nodds. Out of the corner she saw Vincent walking nearby the marketplace. Quickly she made a beline for him, when she reached his side she looped her arm under his.
"Good day. That leak in my roof is back. I'm going to need you to come by soon to fix it."
She smiled up at him and gave him a soft, knowing gaze.

Paige was wandering around the market trying to find his morning tea, key word being trying, as he was still half awake. "The amount of difficulty just to find some herbs for tea is baffling." he said as he walked in to the herb store, that he passed three time already, and looked for his dried peach leaves, "Let's see here mint, might actually want that, oregano, to expensive, bay leaf, no thanks, rosemary, pass, cilantro.... not even going to bother, and...ah here we are dried peach leaves." he smiled as he grabbed a pouch of heavens gift, as he likes to call it, and headed over to pay for his herb.

Vincent was only a little bit surprised when he saw Jezebel, and felt her loop arms with him. He kept his expression neutral, unwilling to allow any familiarity to pass over him. It would link them, he knew to act as if the two of them were good friends and any link to a fellow witch could easily get the both of them killed. Keep things friendly, but not overly so and the dangers of discovery would lessen. Vincent was truly more worried about what would happen were he to be discovered, and how it would effect Jezebel in turn - she had a better reputation to uphold after all.

"Good day Jezebel," He smiles politely "A leak you say? Well now, can't let that go unfixed." A leak in the roof huh, a good cover if anyone else were to inquire why Vincent would be at her place. Though it still may stir up rumors, knowing their little town and all its gossip.

"Shall we fix it now? Of course I have to be back in time to make sure Nathaniel is getting on well, he gets into far too much trouble as is with me around, only the gods know what hes getting up to while I'm gone." He inquires, glancing around as they walk, weary of curious ears.

Jezebel smiled at how he acted, Vincent was certainly good at this game. She placed her free hand over his and slipped into his palm the crystal she had narrowed from him.
"Make sure you bring your toolbox, it's quite a large leak. Everything is soaked"
She smiled as he looked down at her. He could come by whenever he wanted, he knew that. It only mattered to Jezebel that he came at all.
"Why not come this afternoon, he would be all worn out from like you said getting into trouble.."
She stopped walking and slowly pulled herself away from him and whispered,
"See you then..."
With that she bowed her head low and then turned and continued on her way through the market.

Jacob had gone back to his house and was now sitting in the small harder in front of the house, cleaning his torture devices.
He smiled and hummed a hymnal as he cleaned. The people that went by knew better than to stop and stair, they ran the risk of being preeched to if they did. Jacob, even though he was man of torture was also a man of the cloth. He never passed up the opportunity to spread the word of god.

As she walked she smiled at the many towns people who passed by her. She usually didn't speak to them unless they said something to her otherwise she just smiles. Once she got to t he market she looked at the list and filled her basket with the tings on her mother's list along with a few things for herself. As she was paying for her things she looked up and saw Jezebel and smiled. Jezebel was a friend but of course people couldn't know that since she was kind of in higher rank than Lina but she talked to her now and then anyway, plus she was the only person besides Vincent that she could talk to. Lina made her way over "Jezebel." She said as she walked up beside her "Good Morning. How are you today?"
