Greetings fellow travelers,
let's say Lieam dies in a battle against a wild animal - maybe an snake. He has earned two checks in the conflict. What happens with these checks? Are they lost to the patrol? I would let the player give them out to other players as he sees fit, the patrol suffered because he earned these traits, letting them fall unused seems unfair to me.
Also, in a con scenario should mice death be on the table?
