I just woke up. Don't know where I am, don't know what happened or how I got here. I appear to be on a Raft made out of nothing more than a few pieces of wood, floating with no sense of direction with nothing on me except a rope with a hook attached to it. No matter where I look, there seems to be nothing or noone else nearby. I noticed some debry floating around, some of it passes near me, I try to grab what I can, maybe it will be of some use. Unfortunately I see something else in the water. A shark has gained interest in me and is circling my raft, probably waiting for the right moment.
I'm start to get thirsty and hungry, I need to think of something or I will die even before the shark decides to make a move. I salvage some wood and scrap metal. I improvise a way to boil some water in an attempt to make it drinkable. With more scrap I get myself a nice little "can" to get the water. I may not remember anything, but apparently I do know how to start a fire. Without much trouble I get my "boiler" up and running. I dare to take the first sip, and it's not as bad as I feared. Water supply won't be a problem, next thing is to find a source of food. I tried catching fish with my hands but it's useless and I don't dare going into the water. Not that it matters, because I can serve another cup of water my Raft starts shaking. The shark! He grew tired of waiting and it's tearing appart the floor I'm standing on. Without much for me to do I hope the planks hold toghether long enough. Lucky for me, the shark bites out a chunk of my Raft and swims away. I now have to find a source of food and a way to defend my self, before it's too late.
My only way of getting things done is waiting for the floating debry to bring me materials so I can make something up. I collect more wood and scrap metal, and some thatch will suffice to make some rope. I now have what I need to come up with a fishing rod. Also with enough of everything I think I can expand my Raft, so I have more space to work with. I craft a fishing rod but with no other option for bait I put thatch on the hook and hope it works. I cast away and wait. My stomach growls, the shark still round my remaining platform, this might as well be my last chance of survival. I feel something, a tug, could it be? Another, now it pulls hard on the string, I have to fight it, I need this, I need it to stay alive. I pull and pull, one moment almost losing the rod altoghether, next momento almost falling off the Raft. But I succeed. I got a fish, a big one for that matter. I now need to come up with some kind of idea on how to cook it. The concept for the boiler is a good start. From it and adding a few changes, I got myself a cooking station of some sorts. Looks like hunger won't be a problem, The only problem left is that shark, I have to think of some way to defend my life.
