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.


3 Pterodactyls.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 17, MV 90 [land] / 180 [fly], HD 1, Neutral [unintelligent]): a Red plant with a suckered hide, 2 eyes, and a suckered mouth. Harmed only by fire.

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


Citadel of 124 Yellow Men led by a Neutral 1st-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 Overking of the Earth".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


2 Mutant Teratosaurus (AC 16, MV 180', HD 7, neutral). Furred Purple hide. Poisonous.

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.
