Fernando, Day 3
Life has been unkind to Fernando lately. First he was captured in the defense of Cadiz during a war against the English, then as the only way out of a death sentence, he was forced to act as a guide to the Americas under the British flag, in service of two ships and their captains to supply the colony of 'Roanoke'. On the way back to the Americas where he found his riches as a Conquistador before being recalled back to spain to fight against the heretics of England, the two English captains became greedy when they sighted Spanish ships in the distance and desired to board them for wealth and glory. They would soon lose, but it was not a matter that concerns Fernando, for he would not know even that.
During the naval battle, a storm was making the ocean all the more unbearable, and it was in this moment that Fernando tried to sabotage his English captor to aid in their defeat so that he may reunite with his fellow spaniards. Life was unkind, and so he was discovered and in the ensuing struggle, thrown overboard and into a whirlpool.
That was how he found himself in this strange new world. For three days, he fought to survive on the beach of his coming, for he soon found the world to be hostile, it being chocked full of cannibals, moving bones and explosive plants that could move. He built himself a fort, rickety as time was against him, with what trees he could knock down. He gathered food, and what litttle supplies that had washed up with him. He killed as many of those 'devil's servants' who dared siege him, and fought hard for his peace. All was fine, until the third day of his landing. It was already a desperate situation that he had exhausted his meagre food supply the day before, but to make matters worse, one of the plants decided to explode right next to him in order to get to him. Confused at the logic of its suicide, he knew that he would not survive rooted to his little beachhead, waiting for a help that would never come. He would have abandon fort and find his help, before the creatures who made war against him decided to head into the breach...
