I played Witch: The Road to Lindisfarne. We had an amazing surprise ending as Brother Armond actually replaced an innocent Elouise at the stake.

Interesting -- how did that work, mechanically?
At the endgame, Witch allows you to either read out the ritual phrases (involving dragging the Elouise to the stake and lighting the base on fire) or do something else. Brother Armond is the first to read a phrase, and he already took the train off the rails from the get-go.
It was pretty interesting, because Thorne believed that he was infected by the Plague and would surely die unless someone was burned. Thorne would not have accepted it if Armond had simply refused to burn Elouise. But by offering to burn himself, Armond saved Elouise and placated Thorne.
Then we read out the rest of the ritual phrases, but with Armond burning instead of Elouise.
It gave me goosebumps.
