500 AD. Great Britain is a balkanized conglomerate of various petty kingdoms fighting over control of ancient forests. The Roman Empire has been gone for 100 years and the Scottish highlands are still the home of pagan tribes. Christianity holds fast to its Roman foundations in England, yet still is the superstition and fear of the devil and his demons. Indeed these are dark time. WItches are burned at the stake, Picts raid Scottish frontier settlements, and there are rumors of a scourge on the Northern coasts. Communities huddle together for protection, connected by a shared church, who holds onto its power with unrelenting grip. The query was a woman who had never seemed to be of any harm to anyone. But when the plague hit and the children started to pass, the signs pointed witchcraft. Realizing she had no chance to prove herself guilty or innocent, the woman ran. She ran into the misty dark wood of Medieval Britain. The problem is, when you are wanted by the Catholic Church of England for witchcraft and murder, and you run, someone comes after you. Or rather, something. Coin changed hands, the trail was uncovered, and the hunter gave chase. Multiple characters are welcome and appreciated, just provide a character skeleton in a PM if they are to remain long term parts of the story. Originally one on one, but could be expended to a small group. Magic is exceedingly rare, focusing instead on the superstitious realities of Medieval societies. The RP takes place in the 500's AD British Isles, predominantly in Southern Scotland/ Northern England.
