Storyboard Text

  • With the return of Hector and Paris, the battle escalates. But, Apollo and Athena later decide to end the fight for the day.
  • Alright, Athena. This one time, we end the battle for the day.
  • For what reason?
  • Apollo, I think we need a day off.
  • On the same night, Nestor gives a speech urging the Greeks to demand for a day to bury their dead. He also advises them to build fortifications to protect their camp.
  • Hello, once again. I'm here to ask you to take the time to bury our dead. We need to get the job done by midnight of the next day.
  • Also, we need to build fortifications around the camp for protection.
  • Let's build a base wall.
  • I will make sure to notify my dad.
  • I will gather some shovels for the graves.
  • I remember my father...
  • Meanwhile, King Priam arrives at the Trojan camp, making a similar proposal by demanding for a day to bury the Trojan dead.
  • Ok, sir. I will prepare the shovels so I can hand them out for the digging of the graves.
  • I want you to tell the other Trojan troops that tomorrow will be a day to bury our dead.
  • The next day, Antenor, King Priam's advisor, asks Paris to give up Helen and end the war. But, Paris refuses and decides to offer the Greeks all of the loot that he took from Sparta.
  • No way! I won't give Helen to anyone. But, maybe we can end the war by returning all the loot back there.
  • Make sure to leave me some of the goodies.
  • Can you please give Helen back? We just want to end this violent war!
  • The next day, the Trojans present this offer to the Greeks, who reject the compromise and order the Trojan to leave.
  • I just came her to present to you all this loot that Prince Paris took from Sparta. With it, can we end the war?
  • No. We don't need your loot.
  • I sense that the Trojans are desperate to end this war. If we fight back, then we may win.
  • To be continued...
  • Meow.
  • Do what is best.
  • They need me. I want to end this, once and for all.
  • Patroclus, should I return to battle?
