Cannibal Contagion Random Character Archetypes

I’ve been updating the character creation system of Cannibal Contagion to fix some issues brought up in some recent playtests. More specifically, I’ve been writing out an optional fully-randomized character creation process, which includes a handful of draw tables. With the draw of a handful of cards, the entire character can be created from scratch. These tables will also serve as examples for folks seeking ideas on their own Flaws, Archetypes, and Agsomafas. I’m posting the current list of 52 archetypes here for comment and discussion. These are pulled entirely from movies, games and comics of the zombie-survival genre.
