DM (Moi): So Al'hums [Viera Time Mage], what are you doing when the storm arrives?
Time Mage: Doin’ Cartwheels!
DM: Where at?
Time Mage: On the deck!

*One Complication and several minutes later Later*
Samurai: Cass [Hume Samurai] looks out into the ocean, and after seeing Al'hums overboard and drowning, dives in to save him!
DM: Please roll for Athletics to see if you can stay afloat!
Samurai: *Rolls another Complication* ಠ_ಠ
DM: ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) … You manage to start swimming to the middle of the ocean to save Al'hums, and reach him in ti-
Samurai: Hold On. I got a complication-
DM: ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Ranger: Kreeve [Hume Ranger/Gunslinger person] sees his friends and throws them a line!
DM: 83 Please roll Athletics to see if the line reaches them
Ranger: *Rolls a Whopping third Complication*
Ranger: Oh shit.
DM: So, while you were trying to save Al'hums and Cassidy, a patrolling [Bad Guy’s] ship has found your ship through the storm, and is now launching harpoons to annihilate your asses. And you’re still trying to pull Cass and Al'hums onto the boat. Prepare for battle >: 3
