Obviously in the bloodthirsty world of gangsters there's bound to be a chance you'll be killed. To begin with everyone is given a strength score. To determine your strength score, roll 1d6 and round up to an even number. If you're injured you deduct 2 from this score. To regain strength you should go and see a doctor (one of the Civilian professions) who can restore 2 strength per month. When you reach 0 strength there's not much a doctor can do you for you, and death occurs. When a player dies, s/he takes on the role of a new Civilian and starts with $500, not retaining any of his/her former affiliations.
