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.


1 individual of Species 23750.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 13, MV 150, HD 3, Chaotic): a Green annelidoid with a feathered hide, 1 eyes, and a circular gaping maw. Immune to poison.

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


Village of 256 Blue Men ruled by "the Poignancy of All," a Lawful 4th-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 Redoubtable Essence".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


2 Mutant Gorgosaurus (AC 16, MV 150', HD 17, neutral). Feathered Ulfire hide. Suckered mouth, tentacles instead of legs.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


A Bone Man (AC 3, MV 60', HD 1+1, Lawful) and a Jale Women (AC 9, MV 120', HD 1+1, Neutral) explore the badlands in search of alien technology for their war tribe.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
