  • Complication (Man vs. Man)
  • In the middle of the night, Rainsford heard a noise. He got up and walked over to the edge of the boat. He heard it again, it was a loud screeching noise. Then he heard gunshots and Rainsford, who was straining to see anything through the night, fell off the boat!
  • Rising Action
  • Rainsford swam all they way to a large island. As he walked through the island he came upon what he thought was a town but was actually a chateau.
  • Complication (Man vs. Man)
  • Rainsford knocked on the door of the large house. A giant man opened the door with a gun in his hand. Rainsford explains who he is, and the owner of the house, General Zaroff, recognizes who he is and lets him in.
  • The General invites Rainsford into his home for dinner. Rainsford notices all the animal heads hanging on the wall. General Zaroff explains how he loves hunting but he was bored with the same old animal so he made hunting more interesting by buying the Island and bringing "new species" to the island to hunt.
  • As General Zaroff goes on to explain, Rainsford quickly puts it together that he hunts humans. Rainsford calls him a murderer and General Zaroff says its a game and if they manage to survive for three days then they win. Rainsford wanted to leave but the general said he couldn't and he led him upsatirs to sleep.
