The hysteria over witches among the people of Salem swept the region like a disease in 1692. As is the case in any tragic event, there are those who will use the circumstances to their advantage. Under the veil of the witch-hunt lie other motivations; power, greed, revenge, and righteousness.
AFFLICTION is a game set in the hysteria of a witch-hunt. Use your influence to whisper in the ear of the magistrate, judge, governor or minister to protect some and have others arrested. Salem was a chance to gain property, exact revenge and prove one’s righteousness.
