It is amazing how such a short sub can instantly start the wheels turning. There is just enough detail to take this in so many different directions. When I read this I saw a whole larger plot where the priest is a con man who ran off with the money, yet he is being conned by someone from the shadows who's ultimate goal is to sew total chaos. What other matches could be thrown on this already volatile situation?
I think the plot is basic enough that it could come from a hundred places - its nice and simple. Wrongful death. Curse. Lift Curse.
Now, wrongful death is so common that the story needs to turn on why the beggar woman had such power? Favorite of some god? Was she once a powerful witch fallen on hard times? Evil is rarely punished, so why now?
