Storyboard Text

  • Three troublemakers partied and enjoyed life to a rather extreme extent. They drank beer, played cards, and participated in lavish practices. The troublemakers soon became very drunk.
  • A bell rang, alerting the troublemakers to a coffin being laid to rest in the church yard. The church boy and a publican tell the eldest that Death was behind these events as Death was also behind countless other killings.
  • Determined to kill Death, the three troublemakers set out to find Death but eventually meet an old man. The leader of the gang confronted the man over where Death was. The old man smiled and said that Death was under the big oak.
  • However, they eventually find a pile of gold coins under the big oak and promptly forgot their original plan. However just as the youngest troublemaker set off to get food, the other two decide to kill him when he comes back and split the gold 50/50.
  • Meanwhile, the youngest troublemaker also had his own devious plan and set off to get poison to kill the other two. This way, he would have all the gold coins. The youngest poisoned the drinks that he will give to the other two.
  • As the moment of encounter approached, the two troublemakers killed the young-ling as he returned. Satisfied at the result, the two drank the wine with high spirits but eventually died as well due to the poison. Thus concludes the Pardoner's tale.
