Chaucer of Warcraft



Sister site WoW Insider found this cute little piece of machinima telling The Pardoner's Tale from Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. Although the edits aren't the tightest in the world, it was originally designed as a class project, so we'll give it some slack. Those needing the Cliff's Notes, 'cause you know we used them reading this in high school, the story is pretty simple. Three guys are out to kill Death -- like the Grim Reaper -- whom they blame for killing their friend. An old man tells them to find him by a tree, where they find gold coins. Not going to ruin the ending, but they all find Death.
