Well that sounds good. Plenty more to come in this one though.

Full truth - the witch (I forget her name) really did survive from The Plantation. Mr. Ratcliffe shot her, and she had two whole hit points left but failed the CON roll. The Player's never even bothered to check. Seemed like too good an opportunity to pass up.
