Nonsense! You are imagining things. This island is not cursed!
The animal must have put up a fight-- but why was it shot with such a small bullet? It looks like a big animal.
Ah! Rainsford! The great hunter! You must be tired, stay here.
Rainsford is a world class hunter with no tolerance for nonsense. He has his mind set on hunting.
Yes! Humans are the best game, they will put up a fight. So what do you say?
As Rainsford explores the island, he investigates the shots he heard being fired. He becomes curious and logical as he solves the mystery.
Rainsford! I know you are there! I will go back to my house to heal my wounds and then I will be back!
Rainsford comes across the house of General Zaroff, a hunter with an unusual game. Rainsford becomes jumpy and anxious as he talks with him. He must decide whether or not he wants to join Zaroff in his hunting, and he must decide if hunting is just.
Is hunting really necessary?
General Zaroff hunts down men-- and he wants to hunt Rainsford. Rainsford if forced to be the prey and hide from the general, making him attentive and anxious.
As Rainsford is hunted, he sets many traps to try to catch or kill General Zaroff. He is intelligent and clever with the trap making because he sets them in the right spots.
Rainsford lasts three days without being caught, so he won the general's game. As a result, he becomes more of a leader and he is less afraid of Zaroff.
