Pardoners tale

Storyboard Text

  • The three rioters are sitting down drinking. A servant comes to tell them that their dear old friend had been killed in the night by a mysterious creature named Death.
  • The rioters are outraged, and in their drunkenness, they decide to go find and kill Death. 
  • While traveling down the road they meet an old man who looks sad. When approaching the man, they demand to know where they could find Death.
  • The old man directed the rioters towards a grove and told them that he had left Death under an oak tree.  When the rioters arrived, they did not find death but they found 8 bushels of gold with no owner in sight.
  • The rioters realize that if they go back into town with the gold during the day, people will think they are thieves. So they sent the youngest to run into town to get bread and wine to kill some time.
  • While in town, the youngest rioter thought that if he killed the other two, he would be the richest man in town. Therefore, he went and got poison to add to their bottles of wine so that he could kill them. The two rioters that stayed with the gold had the same thought. They then came up with a plan to kill the youngest when he returned.
