Our character was once a slave pulling oars on a ship. Said vessel proves to be less than sea worthy and - after a savage storm - is ripped apart leaving us to the whims of the salty sea. Soon we washed up on dry land, on a beach with a lush jungle before us. Quickly arming ourselves, rather ironically, with a broken oar we moved into the jungle. Here we encountered bandits, archers, apes and ugly beasts. Happily most of these creatures were quite easily dispatched, raising our experience level and allowing us to steal clothes - as the loin cloth was just not a good look - armour and items like gold teeth which no doubt would be able to be bartered at a merchant's stall or shop.
