Somehow we manage to reach the original shore. but the sea monsters, and then the storm, destroyed most of our supplies.

Without ladders or food we have to abandon our quest: our only goal now is to somehow survive. We must find enough materials in the forest to make crude ladders, and enough food to somehow get back to the surface. That could take months just to prepare, and if we do that it will be THE END of our adventures for a while. Or should we put ourselves in the mercy of the gods, patch up the raft again, and launch ourselves again into the storm?

Is there any other choice?
