IC: Anne sets the third Dwarf on the deck, "Sergeant, unless you wanted me to cut the rope and let them drop or open fire without finding out if they were hostile or not first, they'd have wound up on deck anyway. I just sped things up a little and removed any possible cover they might have used if they turned out hostile."
She turns to the dwarves "What's this about using the ship as a missile?"

Seeing that his companions have not been molested, he shrugs and
accepts her assistance.
When Anne arrives on deck, the Sergeant is in a heated conversation
