Title says it all. With combat and the prospect of character death looming I'm wondering if I can keep my CP's after my character dies so that my new character at least has a little something to start with. I'm still on my first character so I'm ignorant on this issue. Thanks.
CPs are an OOC (Out of Character) reward for helping the Combine's development or existence in some way, so yes, as Drofdar said, you keep them after death (and can even gain more while you are dead and have no character at all).
Vrik, I know you're trying to help, but that was probably incredibly confusing and you should probably refrain from answering questions unless you're sure of the answer.
