Storyboard Text

  • Hi everyone! I just became king and the Catholics thinks that I'm going to be nice to them. But because I'm Protestant I will exile all the Catholic priests.
  • A group of catholics wanted to kill the king (James I) so they met at a pub called Duck and Drake and decided that they wanted to make a tunnel that goes under the River Tames to the Houses of Parliament so that they could blow it up from underneath. Some of the people in the group were Guy Fawkes, Robert Catesby and Thomas Percy
  • What a GREAT idea!!
  • Hey guys. I have a very good idea!! How about building a tunnel under the River Tames so that it leads straight to the Houses of Parliament. We can blow up the king at that time.
  • NOOOOO!! All this work for nothing!!!!!!!
  • Ho NO!!! The water from the River is leaking and getting through so we are going to have to change our plan!!!
  • So the plotters' other plan was to rent a cellar right under the Houses of Parliament and fill it with 36 barrels of gun powder. Doing so Guido was going to light up the barrels because he faught in the Spanish Army and he was an explosives expert.
  • HHHHMM..... How much longer do I have to wait here for??

  • Hmmmm.... Well that's strange!! I want a team of guards searching the Tower from top to bottom!! NOW!
  • Hello sir, I just recived this letter from William Monteagle that says not to go to the houses of Parliament an the 5th of November.
  • ...eight of the plotters including Guy Fawkes were hanged, drawn and quartered. Before this Guido was put on the rack for three days and had to tell the names of the other plotters who were then found and shot. One Musket ball killed two people in one time.
  • HHHO.....
  • Whoooooo! Kill him!! Hang him ! Torture him!!
