These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Black Death
Complete Monster: Langiva, the supposed witch, conducts supposed miracles to keep control of the town, satiating her ego. When the traveling knights come across the town, she has them captured and puts them to death in horrific ways: one crucified, another disemboweled. She demands they renounce Christianity and she will spare them, but when one does, she has him hanged. Langiva also drugs the young monk Osmund's lover to make her appear dead, and that Langiva revived her from the dead to make Osmund renounce God, but taunts Osmund later that he had killed his lover for nothing. Her final act of monstrosity is to have the leader of the knights torn apart by horses when he refuses her offer. All her actions are to satiate her ego and keep an iron-fisted control of the town.
