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 Dolm Pudding.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 15, MV 210 [land] / 120 [swim], HD 10, Chaotic): a Jale hexapod with a smooth hide, multiple/insectile eyes, and a beaked mouth. Regenerate 1 HD every 1-3 rounds.

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


Village of 251 Black Men ruled by a Lawful 6th-level Fighter.

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


The mutilated bodies of two Ulfire children lay next to the dead body of a Dolm Sorcerer. On the Sorcerer's person is a book outlining how to cast The Accursed Sounding of the Void.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
