So here's the second completed papercut of I've done for the Tower. This one is of Ranulph Flambard. No one names their kid Ranulph anymore, I wonder why. Anyway, he was imprisoned in the tower. One night, his friends hid a rope in a flagon of wine and had it delivered to his chambers. He shared the wine with his guards who grew sufficiently drunk enough for him to escape without their noticing. Ranulph climbed down the tower wall, but the rope wasn't long enough and he had to jump the rest of the way and, luckily enough, landed in a cesspool to break his fall.
