Storyboard Text

  • Prologue
  • Dang it, Paris!
  • The Greeks have besieged the city of Troy for 9 long, boring years. The reason for this siege? The most beautiful lady of the land, Helen, was captured by the Prince Paris of Troy, much to the disbelief of her husband, King Menelaus of Sparta(Greece).
  • Meanwhile, the gods looked on, far overhead in Olympus...
  • So the Greeks readied the war ships and sailed to Troy. Even After much demanding that Helen be returned(though Helen didn't seem to mind being captured so much) the Trojans refused to release the woman. The Greeks brought great heroes with them, such as Ajax, Odysseus, Diomedes, wise Nestor, and the mighty Achilles.
  • We're off to save Queen Helen! The wonderful Helen of Greeeeeece!
  • Shut up, we're trying to row here.
  • OWWWW...
  • In the tenth year of the siege on Troy, the Greek camp was visited by a priest of the god Apollo. He implored the Greek King, Agamemnon, to return his daughter,Chryseis, who had been taken after the Greeks had pillaged a small village outside of Troy. The High King scoffed at the old man, sending him away. The priest prayed to Apollo to punish the Greeks for what they had done, so Apollo sent down many arrows to pierce the flesh of the men below.
  • Achilles managed to convince King Agamemnon to relinquish the girl to appease the angered god, but not without ticking off the greedy King. Aggie ordered that Achilles give up his beloved Briseis, which he did, but not without issuing a warning that the king would miss his presence if fighting started.
  • The war soon commenced, with Hector of Troy leading the way. Brave men sustained and delt countless injuries and thousands passed into the void, all the while Achilles sat idle. The gods often interfered nudging their favorites out of the path of the odd spear or chariot.
  • The scales are tipping in Troy's favor, when they managed to kill a good friend of Achilles. Achilles finally goes into battle, driven by greif, avenges his friend and dies. Afterwards the Greeks pretend to surrender and flee, leaving behind a pretend tribute in the form of a giant wooden horse, which is taken inside the wall of Troy. Unbeknownst to the Trojans, part of the Greek army is hidden inside, waiting until the Trojans finish celebrating and go to sleep. The Greeks emerge from the horse and massacer nearly all of the inhabitants. Afterwards the Greeks take Helen and all their plunder back with them to Greece. The End.
