The abigail / priest choice is a tricky one . . . to modern eyes the priest was obviously a total wanker with serious issues with women, to the kind of superstitious, largely misogynistic peasants of the sort of era they were trying to evoke he would have been largely unremarkable. In order to capture the feel of a mediaeval witchhunt they had to make a character than anyone with a modern day moral framework would have no choice but to dislike, which made it feel a bit like a foregone conclusion what one would choose.

But then I did feel pretty bad when it ended up with me basically slaughtering the whole village as a result.
