This storyboard does not have a description.
While Hrothgar's men partied and drank in the mead hall a devil like creature named Grendel was angrily in his cave. Hearing the music and stories made him furious so he decided to wreak havoc.
One night Grendel decided to go up to Herot, the mead hall, to see what the warriors did when the partying was over. He found them all asleep and quickly grabbed, killed and ate about thirty of them.
A brave hero named Beowulf heard of the monster's attacks on the Danes at Herot and sought to help, so he asked Higlac, the king of the Geats, for a ship and fourteen of the strongest and bravest Geats to sail with him to Denmark.
When they arrived Beowulf and his fellow Geats were not given a parade for coming to help, but instead they were questioned for their arrival. Beowulf explained who he was and why he came and Hrothgar was open to giving him a shot to take Grendel.
That night Beowulf stayed up waiting to face the evil monster while everyone else was asleep. Grendel grabbed the first Geat he saw and ripped him up and ate him. Then he went to grab the next, but it was Beowulf. Grendel tried to retreat but Beowulf was determined to kill him.
All the men jumped in trying to help Beowulf, but it was no use because swords couldn't cut through Grendel's skin. Eventually Beowulf tore Grendel's arm off, the wounded Grendel escaped only to die in his cave. Beowulf then hung the arm in the ceiling rafters to show all the Danes what he had done.
