You are leading a five person expedition into a zone formed by unknown phenomena. You have no idea what to expect, all previous expeditions haven't returned, none of there communications via radio or satellite have ever escaped, and data produced by exterior sensors has not been able to be understood
>team must be made up of five volunteers, from any background
>the team must be armed and needs to carry all equipment on their person
>the overall terrain is expected to be a swampy coastal bayou
>money is no object, and you can request any fear the US government would reasonably be able to obtain
Who would you pick, what would be your approach, and how would you equip them?
>Who would you pick
A nine month pregnant Natalie Portman (dressed up as Anne Frank obviously), armed with an M16A2 rifle with an M203 grenade launcher.
For me, it's 5 menopausal women with past experience in leadership roles of which I won't appoint any of them and let them sort out who leads, they will all carry 10/22's and since the terrain is unpredictable I think it's appropriate to use unpredictable camouflage so pic related.
>5 menopausal women
*4 menopausal women
Didn't one of them turn into a tree or something?
>ham-faced half white women with mag-pul ARs and knock off gorkas
This is just a PrepHole meetup

Find someone else to lead your suicide mission asshole.
Go ahead and send me to Leavenworth. I ain't fucking around with no Ayy Lmaos.
>Find someone else to lead your suicide mission asshole.
in this scenario, you freely volunteered to undertake the mission fully well knowing it would be a suicide mission. You are free to step back and not go through with it at anytime before actually entering the zone.
they make it very clear that this is a volunteer mission that no one is being coerced to undertake
>Ask for a fuck load of equipment
>walk along edge
Why am I retarded in this universe?
Ok assuming I'm retarded I choose:
Me, retard, equipment: Nothing (including clothes, I am completely nude from head to toe, this is to seduce any aliums in the zone)
1 Navy Seal, Equipment: 202 FLASH launcher plus small arms of their choice
1 E-Thot camgirl who preferably resembles early 2000s Sasha Grey in case my seduction techniques do not work.
1 Supercommando Boris Johnson, equipped with a DeLisle Carbine
1 random Schizo from nearest inpatient Psychiatric rehabilitation facility, equipped with a Special Atomic Demolition Munition (SADM) "Suitcase Nuke".
The Estrogen Four. Behind the Lancome Line
What didn't understand about this movie is why they didn't send any combat personnel with the science ladies. I get that the previous military expeditions failed due to cosmic horror bullshit but did they just run out of army guys? It would have at least prevented the science team from getting fucked up by a bear...
Womyn stronk. No need no stinkin' air support.
As i recall the in movie reason was "we've only ever sent men"
Assuming its the same thing as in the film, just parachute 5 US soldiers from a high alttitude into the center, and have them rig the lighthouse to blow/burn.
If not the case, run some observation or experimentd for a while before sending people in.
they had run through all previous volunteers, and were basically left with people who had a death wish or otherwise wanted to destroy themselves
The psychologist said that they had been sending in people for three years at that point without a single one returning. Whole organization was in despair, and had to resort to using volunteers who were going to kill themselves anyways
Well they should have checked the VA if all they needed was people with suicidal tendencies.
>five volunteers to drive/fly drones into the zone
Easy peasy and will even get some of gov's money.
> 2 nuclear technicians
> 3 idiots
> 1 (one) nuclear bomb
I end the zone.
>Natalie Portman now stands before The Monolith.
What does she wish for?
She's already got those
I suppose the GI Janes just maxed out all of the eldritch thing credit cards.
>money is no object
>look for a bunch of drunk eastern yuro
>get 50 of them to replace the killed one
>buy a nice ranch in a country who allows polygamy
>get pic related in the house and marry all four
>month later some drunk fuck will call you "lot of people died but its done"
>enjoy pic related view
>everyone must have at least rudimentary medical training at an EMT level
>similar universal skills requirements in radio communications and fieldcraft
>each speaks at least one foreign language that nobody else in the group speaks
>one dedicated medical professional, one dedicated communications professional, one demolition/security specialist, two scientists from different fields
>one scientist must be a biologist
>everyone is getting full CBRN training and gear
You've got to treat it more like assembling a crew of astronauts than a fireteam, I think. Everyone is really good at something, but they've all got to have a substantial baseline level of technical knowledge.
they are going to live in CBRN gear for weeks or even months?
Not live in, but they'll have it on them, they'll know when to use it, and they'll be able to put it on quickly.
