Life as a peep isn't always easy, even post war there are still plenty of ways for a peep to meet their premature end.

These life ending/shortening problems are divided into the categories below, disease, injury and other.

InjuryEdit

These lower a peep's body stat. Once the dangerous activity ceases, the stat levels off (instead of decreasing, as with a disease). If it is too low, they must seek out help at a Sick Bay. If it reaches zero before the danger subsides, the peep will die (and you will be out at least 1000e).

Peeps can be injured in many ways including Skrasher attacks, being hit by laser blasts and taking the holodrome too seriously. Minor injuries and strains can be suffered in other ways, such dancing at a disco.

Somehow being shot at is worse for a peep than being clubbed to death by a Skrasher, which only degrades mind and body points. Being shot at degrades all of a peeps major stats.

DiseaseEdit

Main article: Illness

Ranging from simple sniffles to chest bursting aliens these conditions suck the life (points) out of a peep. Certain diseases also damage other attributes.

OtherEdit

Sometime peeps die from other reasons, such as starvation, fatigue and suicide. This is quite rare if you're keeping your peeps well fed, entertained, well rested and spiritually fulfilled.

Game files suggest that there is a cause of death associated with several stats

Stat Death by
Food Starvation
Sleep Fatigue
Fun Suicide
Toilet Kidney failure
Drunk Liver failure

Investigating causes of deathEdit

The analyser at a laboratory can be used to determine cause of death, although death by Skrasher and laser blast usually return a verdict of 'unknown'.

CorpsesEdit

So, one of your peeps has died, now what? Given time a body will decay and probably be cleaned up by a passing Scuzzer. Dead peeps can be beamed into the pattern buffer and recycled. Finding a corpse upsets peeps, especially if it is one of their own species.
