Legend Of The Black Dove
Part 1 - "Enter The Black Dove"
The Year is 1749. A horse-drawn coach is travelling down the Dover Road in Cornwall
Outlaws attack the coach causing it to plummet over a cliff to the rocks below. Realising
There is no sign of life they leave. All of a sudden the coach door flew open. As the badly
Injured John Norrington emerges he notices a cave with a bright glow inside. With his
Last remaining strength he investigates and sees a giant meteorite embedded in the cave
Feeling so weak he collapses into unconciousness, moments later he awakens to find
That he has amazing strength. He rushes out of the cave and climbs the escarpment.
Then makes his way back to Norrington Manor. He then sets about making a costume
He has a purple jacket with a Black Dove ensignia. He slips it on and then puts on a mask.
It is time for the Black Dove to ride, he saddles up his magnificent white stallion, then rides
Into the night in search of the outlaws that wrecked the coach and killed his friends and
Beautiful wife named Beth. The Black Dove tracks the outlaws to a shack, their leader
Is Jack Wild. He is the man behind the murder of his friends. He climbs on the roof by
Leaping off a large rock, his gun in hand, then climbs down to the ground, kicks in
The door and holds the men at gunpoint. A fight breaks out as the Dove wrestles Wild to the Ground, he then forces a confession out of him and ties him on his horse. They both ride Down the highway, were they pass some of the King's soldiers. They pursue both men and a chase follows, Wild is captured as the Dove manages to escape. Wild insists he was
Captured by the Black Dove and he frames the Dove for the coach murders. Meanwhile the
Other two men pursue the Dove shooting at him, he is shot and is then lying on the ground. They realise they have to get rid of him permenantly, so they put him in a box and drop him down an abandoned well. His fate is sealed as the box sinks down into the watery depths.
Whether the Black Dove will live or die, you can find out in Part 2....."The Golden Coach".
