33. "RE: Another Profile"
In response to message #32
 
   >It's fun to write up not-quite-as-you-might-expect DCs, isn't it?

Indeed it is. I took a course in late-medieval/early modern European history a while back in which we dealt pretty extensively with the witch hunts of the 15th and 16th centuries, and it struck me suddenly the other day that, in a world where witches are a) real and b) respected members of society, that old fraud Heinrich Kramer and his vicious stack of lies the Malleus would either not have existed at all, or - more entertainingly - have been refracted through that reality's prism into a force for good in the world. In GCC #332/S, Der Hexenhammer is one of those books like Dr. Johnson's Dictionary of the English Language or Vesalius's De humani corporis fabrica - out of date and not of much practical use any more, but still hugely respected and admired for the ground it broke.
