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.


5 Pterodactyls.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 14, MV 150, HD 8, Chaotic): a Orange icthyoid with a furred hide, 2 eyes, and a toothed mouth.

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


Village of 343 Yellow Men ruled by "the Heart of Summer," a Lawful 10th-level Fighter.

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


3 Mutant Brachiosaurus (AC 16, MV 60', HD 35, neutral). Feathered Brown hide. Can shoot tail spikes up to 60'. Immune to surprise.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


Monastery of 56 Brown Men ruled by "the Golden Hand," a Chaotic 5-th Level Fighter.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
