the story read to you.
Every legend has a beginning, but not every outlaw will become a legend…unless you are Robin Hood.
What is it about a guy with a hood and a bow that just makes us root for the outlaw? Could it be because he robbed from the rich to give to the poor? Could it be because he always gets the girl, and defeats the evil sheriff? Or maybe, its because he lives in the woods with other people who are outlaws just like him?
Robin of Locksley was born the son of an Earl, but as a man he would see war, poverty, famine, and corruption. Robin has returned from the Crusades to find his country home of Sherwood being ruled by a tyrant, who will kill before granting mercy and takes what he wants, especially the beautiful Maid Marian. So, can an outlaw change things for the better?
