Origin[edit | edit source]

Rebecca Towne Nurse (1621 - 1692) was executed for witchcraft by the government of the Province of Massachusetts Bay in New England during the Salem with trials. She was accused by the Putnam family of being a witch because of a land disputes with their family. Since Nurse was such a well-known member of the community there was originally an outcry on her part however several more witnesses came forward and Nurse was sentenced to be hung until dead and then burned. Along with herself Nurse's sister Mary Eastey was declared to be a witch and was executed as well. Fourteen years later Ann Putnan came forward telling the Nurse Family and the rest of the town that she had lied about Nurse being a witch. Nurse's Husband, Francis, cursed at the foolishness of the time taking the noose that was used to hang his wife and hurling it into the cellar.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When hung it disables all technology in a 16 square mile radius, making it as if it was still the era of the Salem Witch Trials.
