I just got hit with Plague on LY2. 3 of my survivors will die today.

Without any spoilers, is there any reason to keep a survivor's name/gender/notes on the settlement sheet after they die? Is there any reason to keep their character sheets achieved (and not erase them)?

(Is there any event which will bring survivors back from the dead or is it important to note the names of the dead? Or is the Death Count the only thing that really matters?)

Our version of what to do:
If unnamed survivor (just a number) - reduce number
If named but no Survivor sheet - remove them from settlement sheet
If they have a Survivor sheet, draw a picture to reflect the way they died and store with the growing pile of other pictograph-enhanced dead survivors - these are then used in conversations like 'remember so-and-so, what ever happened to them?' reply 'Butchers cleaver to the head'.

If a survivor dies at the end of the settlement phase, and that triggers Principle: Death, do you gain a resource or endeavor for that survivor? Or only future dead survivors?

edit: Also, do principles count as innovations for the Hooded Knight story event?

Without any spoilers: Yes, there is a reason to keep the sheets of your dead survivors and all of their data. You might need them later in the campaign.

Also, you can sew yourself clothes to wear out of dead character sheets. Very thematic.

Well that stinks, I've just been erasing everything to reuse the sheets.

Keep the dead character sheets. While rare, you might need them again. By the end of most campaigns, you should have a nice folder of corpses around.

I immediately wad them up and throw them off into a corner to be gathered up and trashed later.


Sometime with varying degrees of annoyance depending on.....things.

In that case follow up question. I have been using laminated dry erase sheets for my characters. Do I need to record everything about them when they die?

You have a death total on the settlement sheet. Assume 50% male/female, and the names don't matter at all.

No actual reason to save anything.

You do need to record everything, just in case things happen.

I used an excel spread sheet to keep track of all of my survivors when I play solo.

That's not entirely true. There's at least one case where specific character sheets of dead people matter. It's just vary rare (like 0.1% of hunt table rolls).

True but you can randomize everything that requires, if it ever happens.

I just love the finality of wadding up the sheet and never looking at it again.

I get that! I used to write "RIP" on the sheets and then literally rip them in half!

Unless there's some event I'm not aware of, there's an extremely small chance of interacting with a dead survivor further than one year after it's died. My group keeps the 2-3 best dead survivors in a given campaign, and the rest get erased when we need more sheets.

Interesting. I have played a fair bit and the only time I have ever erased a survivor sheet then regretted it was from something in the Flower Knight expansion. Must not have come across the specific event you guys are mentioning.

I think that there are two hunt events that interact with dead survivors. Fleshy monolith and a stone statue sitting on a chair.
Though the second one might not give you a dead survivor back I can't fully remember

The chair swaps in a new guy, though at least a few of us were house ruling it as whichever survivor in any campaign sat on the chair...
