King of the Danes Hrothgar has built a magnificent mead hall called Herot , where his subjects come together and feast.
Drawn from his moor by the noise, the infamous murderer stormed Herot with blood on his mind, and hate in his eyes. He devoured 30 men in one rampage.
12 winters pass, and Grendels vicious assaults continue. Hrothgar seeks the help of a great hero, from distant lands.
Beowulf, the strongest of the Geats came to defeat Herot from evil.
Beowulf and his men were fast asleep after their journey. Grendel chose the wrong night to attack.
Beowulf sprang from his slumber to attack the evil being. Grendel knew once he was in Beowulf's powerful grip that he was finished. He thrashed as Beowulf tore his arm from its socket, sinews and tissue being pulled apart like Swiss cheese. Grendel then staggered back to his lair to die, armless.
