Storyboard Text

  • By the time dusk falls, an entire forest of corpses lines the battlefield and rifles are scattered everywhere across the cold, hard dirt. Only four, Sargent Arthur, Sargent Mordird, Private Bedivere, and Private Lucas, remain. An entire mountain of fallen bodies lies nearby and Arthur and his remaining troops notice Mordrid climbing over it, gun in hand.
  • "I'd rather die than see all of my men fall! And Mordrid must pay for his actions! Private Bedivere, give me your rifle!" Arthur declared. "But Sargent Arthur," Bedivere protested, "remember what Private Lucas told you! Even if you succeed, you're going to get yourself killed!"
  • I will NOT die alone!
  • "I don't care if I die! Sargent Mordid must NOT leave this battlefield alive! This is my last chance to make things right! Now give me your rifle Private Bedivere! That's an order!" A solemn look appeared on Bedivere's face as he obliged, saluted, and declared, "May God bless your soul, Sargent." Then they shook hands for what they both knew would be the last time.
  • Then, before Mordrid can even raise the barrel of his shotgun...BANG! Arthur own gun goes off and strikes his son squarely over the heart. Thinking himself victorious, Arthur lowers his gun - and his guard - but Sargent Mordid is a beast and he won't die easily.
  • Just as he is overcome by a sense of weakness by the loss of blood, BOOM! Mordrid's gun goes off and another shot is fired, striking Arthur in the exact same place. Knowing that he had taken his father down with him, Mordird gives off a final smile before he dies.
  • As both dropped their rifles to the ground, Mordrid fell back dead and Arthur found himself overcome by weakness and fatigue as warm, fresh blood pooled onto the floor and seeped through his uniform.  For a brief moment, he was able to stand, but the strength of his legs soon gave way and he submissively collapsed to his knees, fatally wounded.
