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 B'yakhees.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 13, MV 180, HD 4, Neutral [intelligent]): a Green and Dolm amoeboid with a scaled hide, 2 eyes, and no mouth.

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


Castle of 74 Dolm Men led by a Chaotic 5th-level Fighter.

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


6 Mutant Brontosaurus (AC 16, MV 60', HD 31, neutral). Furred Purple hide. Genius Intelligence (18+ Int) and 1-4 psychic powers. Immune to surprise.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


Citadel of 98 Red Men led by "The Ram", a Lawful 4th-level Fighter. "The Ram" is a behemoth of a man, never seen without his indestructible helmet.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
