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.


4 Mummies.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 13, MV 60, HD 4, Neutral [intelligent]): a Brown ooze/slime with a suckered hide, 1 eyes, and a beaked mouth. The creature surprises on 1-4 on a d6.

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


Village of 294 White Men ruled by a Neutral 8th-level Fighter.

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


15 Mutant Stegosaurus (AC 16, MV 60', HD 7, neutral). Feathered Green hide. Suckered mouth.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


What appears to be a simple rock is in fact The Starseed, a source of unlimited power. At any given time there are at least 1-6 high level sorcerers actively searching for the artifact.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
