Sounds godlike. There was a guy in your Random Generators thread who made a similar thing about old west guns, but this beats his version, I think.

It says it's 5-shot, thick and feminine, so it's probably a lady's purse revolver.

The vast majority of those characters were on their first or second missions. There is almost no risk for veteran characters.
What  you're telling me is you want more dead veterans?

The VA is gonna be pisssssed

Does this "one in nine" statistic include nonactive and otherwise squirreled away (like Heph, maybe?) characters? I always suspect statistics used on the internet, it seems too much like people are trying to debate logically. >:(

Yes.  A lot of those character have done missions, which they've survived.  The better way to compare it would probably be by comparing deaths to player-missions, that is, the total number of missions engaged on by players, but that's a lot of counting and I'm too lazy.

If you do that, you have to count casualties, and not just fatalities. The casualty rate in game is pretty high.

Either way, it's far easier to complain than to make something of your own, closer to your satisfaction.

Give credit where it is due. recognize the strengths of the game, the GM, the supporting players, and the rest of us, as well as the weaknesses. if the game isn't your thing, that's understandable, but that doesn't mean it is a bad thing, to be thoroughly discarded.

A history of disgruntled posts and ooc antagonism, with little to no positive interaction to offset it, is not a good standpoint from which to press one's viewpoint.

Firstly, all this was done by hand.  There's probably mistakes.
Secondly, I say deaths, but only count permadeaths.  Basically everyone who's anyone has died at least once, except for Milno.  But he's Milno.
Thirdly, I refer to people's experience by level.  I count number of missions only, disregarding missions which gave more or less experience than average.
Fourthly, there's a lot of choices I made when doing this which could have an impact on the statistics.  For instance, I excluded anyone who was level 0 and wasn't on a mission.  If you think things have to be counted differently, go do it yourself.
Fifthly, only Xan's first death was counted.  Since the clones retained levelups, it messes up the system.
Sixthly, I used only the wiki's Character Index to compile this, so any mistakes on that page have most likely been preserved.
Lastly, these statistics are purely for entertainment purposes, and I am not responsible for any injuries or deaths that may result from their use.

Man, we could get so many points if we get Milno killed.

You can try, but you will die.
I don't know about that. I mean, he's strong, but he's not some kind of synthflesh/xeno god or anything. You'd need to bring lots of firepower and some decent planning, but I think it could be done.

Any tips on how you'd do it?

He's only human, and spends a lot of time out-of-suit these days. If one of us wanted Milno dead, it wouldn't be that hard. The one who did it would end up like Leo or worse, but it could be done.
