The sea whips furiously at Arden, tossing him around and testing his 
strength and skill as a climber
[Climbing Skill Roll: 78%].  Suddenly a fierce wave leaps up and catches 
Arden and before he knows it,
he's tossed into the sea.  Above him he sees the rope, with his 
belongings dangling from it.

As Alex swims towards the ship, she sees Kyle's SAMAS flying far above, 
and a figure dangling from
the rope.  A fierce wave comes up and for a moment she is submerged.  
When she resurfaces, she sees
that the person on the rope has been swept off and is in the water.
