Storyboard Text

  • We shall have a storytelling contest to entertain ourselves. The winner will get a free meal.
  • I, the pardoner shall go first.
  • *clink clink clink*
  • He has killed too many of our friends.
  • Let us travel in search of death and kill him!
  • You can find him under a tree that way.
  • Tell us where to find death or we will hurt you old man.
  • A group of 29 travelers meet at the Tabard inn and plan to leave for Canterbury to visit the relics of Saint Thomas Becket. They decide to have a storytelling contest and the Pardoner decides to tell his story first.
  • I will go buy wine in town to celebrate.
  • I will poison the wine and take the money for myself.
  • The story starts with three drunken rioters in a tavern who hear the bell from a coffin travelling by outside the tavern. They decide to go in search of death and plan to kill him.
  • Let us kill the young one when he returns with the wine and split the money. We will both end up with more money.
  • They find an old man and threaten him to force him to tell them where they can find death. He tells the rioters that death can be found beneath a tree.
  • And so death was found by the men, not as a manifestation but each individually met death in his own way.
  • The rioters find 8 bushels of gold under the tree instead of death. The youngest rioter decides to go back into town and buy wine to celebrate their findings. He decides to poison the wine to keep more gold for himself.
  • While the youngest rioter is in town, the other two conspire to stab him to death so that they will only have to split the gold two ways.
  • When the youngest rioter returns, the other two stab him to death and drink the poisoned wine to celebrate. Consequently, all three of the rioters end up dead.
