Salem RPG original pbm game

The year is 1630. The place Salem Massachusetts and here there be witches. Some good witches, some very bad witches, and the magicless good people whom they live amongst. Those witches who came to America running for their lives from the unwanted prospect of being eventually burned alive if they remained in Europe hoped to find the freedom to practice their magic. This was not to be so easy, though and some witches are simply too wicked. They stir up trouble and draw the notice of nonmagical eyes. Witch eventually turns against witch when those not so dark who only wish to heal and quietly practice their craft are suspected while the darkest of the dark witches still manage to hide in the shadows. Still there are some witch hunters that never give up.
Where do your characters fall in this? Shall they be puritans, good witches, very bad witches, or something else entirely? The something else entirely has much potential as we all know that witches can summon some very interesting creatures from the bowls of hell by the dark of the moon.
This game is an original concept, not based on any show or movie that involves Salem witches. It does however allow for canon characters to be brought in if they are from that period because Salem is Salem, after all. If you wish to play a canon, request it from the owners. Their story will likely change as this won’t be their Salem, just a general Salem with other characters, ETC, so keep that in mind.
Originals are of course welcome as well and encouraged. players can play as many characters as they like so long as they keep up with posting. Submit original bios to the owners after filling them out and they shall be approved in a reasonable amount of time. Please direct any questions to the owners when joining.
