  • Short-changed

    This scene features a young man who became famous for slaying a vicious beast that terrorised his community. So noble and courageous were his actions that the local Chieftain presented him with a plot of land for his troubles. The land, however, was renowned for being the worst plot of land in the kingdom, set in a low hollow and of no value. The cruel Chieftain looks on with laughter as the young man receives his reward.
