I should probably mention that False-Flag operations with Champion gear are pretty much impossible. Kind of like how Kobor noted that Predator has more safety systems and fail safes than personality, Official champion gear works the same way. It's designed specifically to prevent misuse. Some examples: Champion guns will automatically refuse to fire if pointed at a marked civilian. Champion shield systems and heavy armor has a lock system that, should Hivemind deem the wearer has gone rogue, he can activate and immobilize the user. This includes the stasis triggers, which he can remotely activate if he needs to.

You don't build an army of unstoppable people and give them unstoppable equipment without having a way to stop them if you have to.

As for character deaths, the only one who'd consider death to be a happy ending is Legionnaire, though I actually do have a few "death" scenes planned out for some of the characters. Can't say who or how though, because that would be spoilers.

considering the hypotheticals would be replicas, not originals, one could simply omit those components during construction. a Five Seven with it's safety removed still looks like a normal Five Seven from the outside, and its nearly impossible to obfuscate the purpose of a part that actively interferes with a firing mechanism, or triggers a hard shutdown, without compromising it's ability to do it's job.

Hivemind is a hyper-intelligent superhuman. He'd build the safeguards into things in such a way that the weapon or armor would be non-functional without those safeties. There would be redundancies on top of redundancies on top of redundancies. Nearly every piece would have some sort of safety on it.

All of this is assuming she was even able to take the weapons and armor off of the ship unauthorized without Hivemind knowing and instantly frying the equipment beyond any ability to reverse engineer. That alone is a heavy stretch.

Keep in mind, Hivemind may not talk smart or act like a super intelligent being in conversation, but he does have billions of super computer brains thinking about things like this. If there was any way to foil the safeguards or recreate the tech without them, he would have found that way first and would have taken it into account.

Honestly Lego, ALL OF THEM.
Nat would try to go faster and end up straining himself and causing him to die, or a flying accident
Ken and Brad go to their home planet but get separated and they both get extremely sick, (you know the weakness) the link breaks because Ken dies. Brad find Ken, gets mad, and gets really big, in fact, he gets so big he is considered a threat, and gets obliterated with a SUV blaster. (Super UltraViolet, not the vehicle.)

Corp'd go down fighting, of course. Death doesn't hold much fear for him. He's already had the worst case scenario death play out (left wounded to die in a trap for days) so that's done. He doesn't dream on a 'heroic' death turning back hundreds of opponents, though. For him the noblest way is to save ONE person.

Kilo in RA just plans to die of Old age.

That's the one, mate.

That help you out, Lego? (She's the one on the right.) ;)

For some reason I pictured her as being grey. Anyways, that should definitely help. I already have an artist in mind for the picture, though I’m waiting on a response from them to see if they’re up for it.

Hawk, you do realize that A. Lycan has never eaten everyone, and B. His species hasn’t eaten since medieval times? I’m not sure how your character’s uncle could’ve been eaten by him or anyone that looks like him.

Blaidd is Welsh for Wolf. Saffy actually using it as Celican for Coyote because the Welsh for Coyote is Coyote and I suddenly thought I'd like a change from having an Alien species name curiously close to the English...

actually it sounds more like he's trying to set up a Startrek style mirorverse where everyone's allegiances and alignments are 180* from the norm... and falling flat on his face because he immediately tossed out a bit of exposition that undermines the whole setup.

Now, now. Just because our Lycans haven't done it, doesn't mean some other Wolf-like species didn't pop down for a takeaway at some point.

That sounds like the sorta thing that should be discussed with the DM instead of just randomly plopping it into a post.
