If a character dies, they earn a 100 prestige bonus in addition to whatever prestige they earned based on mission success. Dead heroes get no experience but do get standard pay. Their clone is surprised to wake up with a shiny new medal.
New clones are issued a new blaster and a MedKit with the fervent hope that they will learn to use at least one of the objects before they return to the clone vats.
They will also be issued armor if they can wear it. Other equipment lost when you die may be recovered with a special round of requisitions called “Alms for the dead”. The hero gets a free chance to requisition each lost item.
