Storyboard Text

  • It all started when Odysseus wanted to steal the luck of troy. The luck of troy was a stone in the shape of a black shield, and the trojans believed that as long as it was there, the goddess Athena would protect them from enemy invasion. Odysseus wanted to do this because knew that the trojans took comfort in it, and stealing it would diminish their hope of winning the war. So he came up with a plan.
  • Stealing the luck of troy would be good for us!
  • Odysseus disguised himself as a traveling beggar who had been captured as a Cretian pirate by the Egyptians who snuck up on a boat which wrecked near along the coast south of Troy. He spoke with Diomedes, who gave him some bread and meat to eat, and told him his story. After he was finished, Diomedes gave hima rug to sleep on and let him sleep on the front porch of his hut. On the next morning, all he did was stir up trouble. He told stories of soldiers to other soldiers and made people mad. Because of this, they threw him out of the camp.
  • I am a Cretian pirate who was captured by Egyptians. 
  • Who are you?
  • Helen saw the soldiers whip the beggar as they kicked him out of their camp and she felt sorry for him. She brought him inside and got him washed and clothed, only to find out that it was Odysseus. Helen was mad at him, and said that if they were not friends, she would have had the guards give his body to the dogs and pin his head to the top of the gate. After that, they ate, and Helen gave Odysseus a gift, which was a gold vial that was made into the shapes of beasts and flowers.
  • Uh Oh...
  • Odysseus?!?
  • Helen also gave him a drug that helps with sleep, which was rumored to come from the poppy pods that decorated the god of sleep's head. When he came out, he was in his beggar disguise again and stayed for a couple more days. On the last night he was there, he went to the temple of Athena, which was where the luck of Troy was, and pretended to sleep there. He had placed the drug nearby, and when the guard came, she drank almost all of it and fell into a deep sleep.
  • zzz...
  • Now is my chance!
  • Then, Odysseus stole the luck of Troy and replaced it with a fake version made out of clay. Then, he put the luck of Troy in his pouch and under the bread that he had gotten from begging yesterday. He kept well to the shadows of the streets as he left, and told the guards at the gate that he had enough food to get to the next city, and he showed the guards the bread and meat in his pouch that were hiding the things underneath. The guards let him pass, and he stopped at an old road and slept there until the evening. After that, he got up, ate some food, and started to walk toward the greek camp.
  • Finaly!
  • After a while, he arrived at the greek camp. When he showed the luck of Troy and the whip marks on his shoulders, the soldiers laughed and celebrated. But in the city, the people's last hope was gone.
  • The luck of Troy is ours!
  • Yay!
