combat moves, so we'll deal with the boat.

Alex's three round burst has a good deal more effect, blowing a reasonably
large hole in Wallace's chest.  He looks a little surprised, seems ready to say
something and then simply falls over.

For the briefest moment, the rest of the crew just stands there, frightened
and confused.

Alister falls in beside Alex, his rifle at the ready.

Suddenly one of the crew shouts "You shot Wallace!"  He makes no move forward,
but he and the rest of the crew are reaching for their weapons.

Louissa backs up and stands beside Alex and Alister..  While trying to
look stern,
she whispers to Alex, "What do we do?"
