In the midst of grabbing the pipe he falls in. Rainsford finally reaches land, he finds a spot and falls soundly asleep. After he woke up he walked around a bit and found an empty cartridge for a 22 and a lot of blood. Soon after he finds a huge mansion and walks in and comes face to face with Ivan, a huge, seemingly strong man, holding a long-barreled revolver.
He meets a man that saves him from the wrath of Ivan, his name is General Zaroff. After a bit of visiting, General Zaroff proceeds to talk about hunting. He says that he hunts a much more superior and greater game. But what could this be?
