They planned to use the cellar under the house of parliament to store barrels of gunpowder so they could blow the house of parliament up.
  • Guido Fawkes A.K.A Guy Fawkes{explosive expert} was feeling very determined that their plan might work as they want it to be. When he had to bypass the guards he said he had potatoes in the barrels instead of gunpowder.
  • When Guy Fawkes was found he told the guards he was John Johnson. but later they caught him and he was tortured to get the truth out of him
  • He finally told the guard the truth after 3 days of torture. but torture is not always reliable as someone might lie to get it over with.
