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.


7 Triceratops.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 16, MV 150 [land] / 120 [fly], HD 9, Chaotic): a Red arachnoid with a feathered hide, 6 eyes, and a beaked mouth.

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


Village of 272 Brown Men ruled by a Chaotic 6th-level Fighter.

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


You meet "the Refulgent Ocean".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


12 Mutant Pteranodon (AC 14, MV 30' [150' Fly], HD 2, neutral). Feathered Purple hide. Tentacles for tongues (can grab prey up to 20' away). Surprised only on a 1.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


Village of 156 Green Men ruled by "the Dragon," a 4th-level Sorcerer. The Sorcerer's research has left him disfigured: he has the scales and tail of a lizard, and is cold blooded.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
