CARCOSA ALTERNATIVE CHARACTER CREATION

Nice post from Throne of Salt that I think could also be used to generate characters for Carcosa.

I really like the CONCEPT table where once per session, a player can either add 1d6 points to a roll or re-roll a skill check provided they are acting according to their character concept.

This sounds like a nice house rule to mix with 5e's backgrounds, ideals, bonds, and flaws in some manner.

ConceptAspect

2) CreatorWorking, building, making.
3) MentorTeacher and keeper of knowledge.
4) MartyrSelf-sacrifice for others' sake.
5) RulerControl and command
