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.


6 Triceratops.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 15, MV 210, HD 7, Neutral [unintelligent]): a Black amoeboid with a suckered hide, 5 eyes, and a suckered mouth. Its touch causes paralysis. Regenerate 1 HD every 1-3 rounds.

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


Citadel of 106 Black Men led by a Lawful 9th-level Sorcerer.

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


15 Mutant Iguanadon (AC 16, MV 150', HD 10, neutral). Feathered Brown hide. Pillow-like consistency, immune to bludgeoning attacks.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


17 irrational space aliens herd a group of 15 Yellow Men into a small metal bunker.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
