Hi sir my name is General Zaroff nice to meet you.
What you do for living.
I like to hunt animals and humans.
Rainsford is on his way to Rio to hunt jaguars in the Amazon. Whitney, one of the crew, and Rainsford decide to have a discussion on hunting. Whitney explains that they are approaching "Ship-Trap Island" and that sailors are very afraid and feel a cold chill run through their veins when in its midst.
he is going to hunt me for fun.
They are meeting each other.
I will hunt you.
If Rainsford wins, Zaroff promises him to let him go free from the island to continue his pursuits as a hunter. He makes Rainsford promise not to tell anyone about theirhunt- should he survive.
Im going to die.
He would give the a supply of food a hunting knife three hours head start.
It is an unfair advantage from the start and becomes even moreso when Zaroff gets help from his giant butler Ivan and then from his dogs.
At the end of the story General Zaroff believes that Rainsford has simply given up and jumped off the cliffs and into the sea to meet his death. He is actually disappointed that Rainsford chose this method of death as opposed to finishing the game.
