On a lifeless island of black stone
stands the alien city of Carcosa.

This is Random Carcosa. You can use this website to generate random hex descriptions for a world derived from the information within and aesthetics of Geoffery McKinney's Carcosa. What's this all about?

This is very much a work in progress. If you need a random 1st level character for your Carcosa game, I've got you covered. If you need to roll a dCarcosa we can do that too.


2 Velociraptors.

About 10% of the hex descriptions in Carcosa are simple monster encounters.


3 Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 12, MV 210 [land] / 30 [fly], HD 3, Chaotic): a Brown annelidoid with a smooth hide, 4 eyes, and multiple mouths.

There are 103 Spawn of Shub-Niggurath encounters described in Carcosa.


Village of 311 Yellow Men ruled by "the Heart of Total Countenance," a Lawful 9th-level Fighter.

Of the 800 hex descriptions in Carcosa a little more than a quarter describe a village, citadel, castle, or monastery.


8 Mutant Trachodon (AC 16, MV 120', HD 9, neutral). Scaled Bone hide. Poisoned tail spikes has the effect of green lotus powder.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


1 Sabertooth Tiger (intelligent).

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
