Storyboard Text

  • Oh, I didn't sleep very well last night. I never do, really. This house is cold and small. There always seems to be smoke hanging in the air. Right now I am eating a cold piece of bread for breakfast.
  • I will die from this illness, I'm sure. Our family, like most, is not rich enough to see a doctor.
  • Look! It's my brother. He has a horrible sickness, though. The Black Death! It is common in the middle ages. Well, off to work I go. There isn't much I can do to help him.
  • I am a cobbler. This is a common job in my village. Right now I am working on a "master piece." If it pleases a guild leader, I will be able to open my own business and join a crafts guild for cobblers! I have earned enough money for the day. I am going to witness a public execution!
  • I didn't do it!
  • This man was accused of murdering his neighbor. This fellow was just run through with a sword. However, some unlucky prisoners are drowned or even burned at the stake.
  • Look! It's a stray dog. You will find lot's of those in towns like this one.
  • It is so late! I must get home. Most towns like mine are not safe at night because of thieves and barbarians. Oh, my! I almost stepped on a moldy piece of bread! Everybody in this town just tosses there food out the window! This is the reason that most medieval towns smell so bad.
  • Where am I? And... who is that!?!?! Oh dear! AHHHHHHH!
