Storyboard Text

  • The Battle Begins
  • Denied Fate
  • The Defensive Strike
  • "Beowulf the warrior lifted his shield: the firedrake writhed an convulsed and vehemently challenged the king, whose keen, edged sword, an heirloom inherited by ancient right was already in his hand."
  • "Yet his shield defended the renowned leader's life and limb for a shorter time than he meant it to that final day was the first time when Beowulf fought and fate denied him glory in battle.
  • "So the king of the Geats raised his hand and struck hard at the enameled scales, but scarcely cut through: the blade flashed and slashed yet the blow was far less powerful than the hard-pressed king had need at that moment."
