The Pardoners Tale began with a group of three young men from Flanders These three rioters did nothing but engage in irresponsible and sinful behavior One night while in a tavern the three drunkards witnessed a dead man being carried to his grave When they inquired who the dead man had been they were told that it was one of their friends who had just been killed by Death Once they learn that their friend had not been the only one who had been slain by Death they vow to kill Death themselves On their search for Death they run into a poor old man who after complaining that Death refuses to kill him informs them that Death can be found under a nearby oak-tree When the men arrive at the oak-tree instead of finding their enemy they find unbelievable amounts of gold They then decide that they will take the gold and divide it equally among the three of them Their only problem is that they will not be able to being it back to town because many of the towns people will believe the gold to have been stolen The three rioters brainstorm and come up with a plan they decide that the man who chooses the smallest straw will have to travel back to Flanders to gather food and drink from them Then once he returns theyll leave in the middle of the night The youngest drew the shortest straw and began his journey back to Flanders After the young rioter had left the other two drunkards decided that they should murder the third once he returned By doing this they believed that they would each gain more money since the money would then only have to be split between the two on them However while they had been planning their murder the youngest rioter had visited an apothecary and bought poison which he had planned to pour into wine
