First: Form an ethics board. We have a powerful weapon, but possession does not mean we ought to use it. Do Bay12ers have the right, for instance, to aid one side of a territorial conflict?

Second: Some way of knowing who has the suit. If there's no mechanics-way of knowing (ie, the suit lets everyone know), then I'd recommend implementing a strict schedule for use.

Which would require, thirdly, a police force. Losing the suit after 24hrs should be incentive to be fairly good in the time allotted, but only if Bay12 knows who's wearing the suit. We'd need surveillance on all current Bay12 members, or at least implementation of a system where observance is possible in the eyes of would-be transgressors.

Fourthly, some form of judicial and punishment system - perhaps run by the ethics board, though if possible a different and less partial body.


All in all, the proper use of this suit would be a bureaucratic nightmare. It would require, in essence, the formation of a State of Bay12 - presumably, given its relative shortage of resources and manpower, a secret one.

Guys I think we formed the Illuminati.

I'd think this so-called 'ethics board' would have the life expectancy of an annoying noble from the mountainhomes and likely to suffer the same fate

We probably need to destroy the suit because I don't see any of this going well.

Can I take it for a drive off the coast for a bit? I've always been too worried about sharks to go scuba diving...

Obviously!

A skinsuit that reacts to your movements.  You reach out your hand, it reaches out.  You grasp- you grasp.

I fucking love being Samus Aran and rolling around the detritus of Zebes.
