EXT. SCENE OF VILLAGE – AFTERNOON

The peaceful village of Wira full of plants and small humble houses is having a normal day with children running and playing, adults working on jobs and socializing. There is a soft relaxing happy melody playing.

DISSOLVE OUT

EXT. IN THE WOODS – AFTERNOON
Zoom away from the village and into the woods and a mob of cursed orcs and undead with bloody weapons and torches ,all wearing the emblem of the queen, rushing toward the village. Deep dramatic music.

DISSOLVE OUT

EXT. IN THE WOODS – AFTERNOON

Marcus is alone at his small camp in the woods just outside of the village by a river with a fire going. As he sits on rock fishing he hears the rumble of mob. Not sure what it is he listens intently. Realizing what the noise is, he quickly grabs his bow and arrow, daggers, axe and sword, and sprints away.

DISSOLVE OUT

EXT. IN THE WOODS – AFTERNOON

The horde is just about to clear the forest trees when one of the orcs is shot down by an arrow

ORC LEADER

AMBUSH!!!!

Then another orc is shot dead with an arrow. A flashing image of Marcus flies through the mob and three more orcs drop dead. Then Marcus reveals himself from behind a tree. The orcs are enraged.

Marcus, weapons sheathed and very relaxed stands strong.

ORC LEADER

Ahh why the triumphant Marcus, the village protector. The queen has grown tired of your numerous interferences of her desires. You will pay for your actions.
The orcs rush toward Marcus and one by one Marcus slays them all (epicly).

DISSOLVE OUT

EXT. IN THE VILLAGE – AFTERNOON

Marcus walks into the village with the weapons and a body of the orc wearing the emblem of the queen and everyone is gathering to see what he has done.

MARCUS

The queen is sending larger forces to attack the villages. We must rise and put an end to her dark reign. We must come together and fight. I cannot do this alone. My brave Wirians let us rise and kill the queen.

Dramatic awkward pause. Whispers among the crowd

Villager 1

Fight?! Us?

MARCUS

It is the only way. We can join forces with the other villages. We can put an end to the suffering.

Councilor of the Village

Our efforts will only make our situation worse. We will inflict more pain and suffering by challenging the queen. We cannot go.

Marcus

WILL YOU ALL SIT AND DO NOTHING!?!?
COUNCILOR

To protect our village is one thing, but to go attack the queen is foolish.
DISSOLVE OUT

EXT. MARCUS’ CAMP – NIGHT

Marcus is sitting alone sharpening his weapons and fixing up his armor. A hooded figure approaches stealthy.

MARCUS
Ange, I have told you many times lighter on your feet and swifter on your movements. *chuckles*

ANGE
Oh man, I was so close. But anyways, Marcus, the people are fearful to stand with you. You cannot fight an army alone.

MARCUS

Villages are being burned, women and children murdered. You must try to get the people to fight.

DISSOLVE

EXT. VILLAGE – AFTERNOON
The village is out and about and there is much talk about Marcus and the idea of rising against the queen.

BLACKSMITH
We could never defeat the queen. Her army is countless and her power is unknown.

CUSTOMER
It would be a lost cause.

ANGE
But we can. If we fight together we can do it.

The customer and blacksmith look at each other intently.

EXT. MARCUS’ CAMP – MORNING
Marcus prepares for battle gathering all of his weapons and putting on his armor while talking to Ange. He then rides away on his noble steed into the woods.

ANGE
How long are you going to be away? You cannot stay away for too long, your plan to return some time right?

MARCUS
I will return when necessary. This must be done. You have to spread the word throughout the villages to gather forces. We can be victorious in the fight against fear and evil.
As Marcus is about to jump onto his steep Ange jumps and gives him a hug

ANGE
Be safe, and return in one piece.
Marcus jumps onto his horse and rides away.

DISSOLVE OUT

EXT. VILLAGE – AFTERNOON
Ange is out in the town telling everyone that Marcus has left to fight the queen and that we should go fight with him.

ANGE
Marcus left at dawn to fight the queen.

Blacksmith
He is a foolish warrior. One does not simply walk into Mordor.

Ange
No, he is a warrior with hope and love for his land. He stands and fights for what is right.
Ange walks away   
DISSOLVE OUT

EXT. IN THE VILLAGE – NIGHT
Marcus is limping through the forest holding his side. He appears to have a severe wound. As he makes it into the village people are coming out to see what him. Ange runs to Marcus and takes him into her house.
ANGE
Oh my gosh Marcus
MARCUS
Easy, its an arrow in my leg and a slice on my ribs.
EXT. VILLAGE – AFTERNOON
Marcus is taken care of but still looks tired and weak. But the fire in his eyes is still burning. The people gather around him to hear what he has to say.
MARCUS
Throughout the lands villages just like yourselves have been attacked and burned by the queen. I have seen what these creatures are cable of, I have also seen that these creatures live in fear of the Queen. Their hearts cannot know what we fight for. We can overcome them.
Yet again there is a silence in the crowd
Counselor
We have discussed this already Marcus, we cannot go fight the queens army. We have no army to fight. It is a fool’s errand you ask.
MARCUS
It is the errand necessary to rid the world of the evil of the queen. Bear arms with me and fight for what is right.
There is yet another silence amounts the crowd. Marcus without a word walks to his steed and rides away. 
EXT. IN THE WOODS – AFTERNOON
As Marcus is away from the village pushing hard for the queen, another mob of the queens creatures is sent to attack the village. The people become aware that the mob is approaching begin to panic.  
Orc 1
Haha you no longer have your precious Marcus to protect you.
Orc 2
Burn !!!!!
ANGE
We are not scared of you.
Ange begins to fight back this encouraging the rest of the villagers to fight back.
DISSOLVE
EXT. VILLAGE – AFTERNOON
The village has been badly ransacked however the mob was slaughtered by the villagers. The Villagers are all together discussing the attack.
ANGE
These attacks are the attacks that Marcus has warned us about. This is the reason he is out fighting for us. Because we can do it.
Blacksmith
I do have the metal and craftsmanship to make impenetrable armor and piercing arrows and strong sharp swords.
Priest
I can teach a few people the ways of healing.
Mage
I can teach people some of the spells of the arcane power.
ANGE
I can teach everyone how to use a sword and shoot a bow.
COUNSELOR
Now now we cannot make rational decisions just like this we have to think about this
ANGE
It is the only way to put an end to this. We can gather forces from neighboring villages, we must train, we must fight. We cannot let Marcus’s efforts go for nothing.
BLACKSMITH
So we fight!
DISSOLVE OUT
EXT. IN THE FOREST BUT VERY CLOSE TO CASTLE OF THE QUEEN. AFTERNOON
Marcus encounters a very large mob and in this mob was the only and only queen with her cursed sword.
QUEEN
A lone hero sent by all of the lands to defeat me, the queen. I must say I am very impressed by your performance, however how could you ever think that you could defeat me. Not many would be brave enough to come for me, especially alone, so I must honor you in that aspect but also ridicule for being fools.
MARCUS
Before if have taken my last breath you will have been killed.
QUEEN
Your soul will be mine forever. ORCS!! GET HIM!!!!
The a few orcs charge at Marcus at a full sprint. Marcus swiftly and epicly slays them all.
QUEEN
Impressive. Very Impressive. Undead attack.
A mob of undead stalk over to and surround Marcus. All at once they attack. Marcus manages to slay them all yet again but then drops to one knee.
QUEEN
I thought you could do better the that , but it appears you are weak.
Marcus slowly rises to his feet with daggers in hand.
QUEEN
AHAHA that is more like it. Finally a really challenger. Let us see what he can really handle. Beasts attack!!
Four large beasts charge at Marcus, now very weak. Marcus struggles to gain the upper hand and becomes heavely wounded all over his body, he slays the beasts but ends up on all fours spitting blood.
QUEEN
Haha it appears that the beasts were too much for our hero to handle.
Marcus yet again rises to his feet, with much more of a struggle. 
QUEEN
Why are you fighting? Why do you  continuesly rise to your feet only to be knocked down? Why wont you just die?
MARCUS
Because I have a reason to live. I need to let it be known that you should not be feared, that your reign can come to an end.
The queen becomes infuriated.
QUEEN
ARCHERS!! SHOT HIM, but make him suffer, I shall deliver his death.
Four arrows are shot all hitting Marcus. Marcus now near death kneels helplessly as the queen walks over to him.
QUEEN
You fool, how dare you threaten my kingdom. You speak of letting it be known that I can fall? Who is here to witness it? All they will know is that an inglorious bastard thought he could kill the queen and never returned.
MARCUS
You see my queen that is where you are wrong. Because I am an idea, and ideas are bulletproof and will spread faster than the fear that you bring upon this world. They will know that one man stood up to you and died. Now can you imagine all the villages of the land coming together to fight you. You my queen are the foolish one. Let us see if you can handle the nations of this land coming together as one.
DISSOLVE OUT
EXT. IN THE VILLAGE – MORNING OF THE SAME DAY
The village people have become excellent marksmen, very skilled in the ways of arcane magic, astonishing swordsmen, and have been equipped with the impenetrable armor of the blacksmith.
ANGE
We have prepared well enough. We have become strong. We have become knowledgeable in the arcane magic, we have healers to heal us when needed, archers that can shoot form a mile away. WE ARE READY TO FIGHT!!

BLACKSMITH
MARCUS WILL NOT DIE IN VEIN!!!
ANGE
Marcus has protected this village countless times; it is our turn now, to protect him. We will make a stand with him to end this suffering of the world. LET US GO NOW!!!!
The many champions all jump on their swift epic mounts.
DISSOLVE OUT
EXT. IN THE FOREST BUT VERY CLOSE TO CASTLE OF THE QUEEN. AFTERNOON
Marcus is still on his knees helplessly while the queen is talking to him ready to deliver Marcus’s fatal blow.
QUEEN
Your soul will be mine forever. Forever you will suffer for your ignorance
The queen raises her hand, dagger in hand about to strike Marcus in the chest, when suddenly an arrow hits her in the hand.
QUEEN
AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Marcus, the queen and her servants all look atop the hill in which the arrow came from. It appears to be a lone archer. The queen furious orders a full attack on this one person
QUEEN
KILL HER!!!!!!
As the servants are racing up this hill, hundreds of champions begin to appear from behind the hill. This causes the servants to halt and retreat. The champion’s chase them down the hill will a roar that is heard for hundreds of miles.
QUEEN
This cannot be happening. How could they rise up so soon and so powerful?
The queen flees frantically toward her castle. The champions reach Marcus to late and Marcus dies.
OMNISCENT VOICE – The war between the queen and the people did not last very long. Neighboring villages heard about Marcus and soon all began to join forces and easily over threw the queen. Marcus will be remembered forever.
