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 Velociraptors.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 19, MV 60, HD 8, Chaotic): a Green insectoid with a smooth hide, 2 eyes, and a beaked mouth. The creature is psionic: (1-8 powers, 1-8 times per day)

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


Village of 223 Purple Men ruled by "the Jewel of the Gatherer," a Lawful 5th-level Fighter.

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


4 Mutant Brontosaurus (AC 16, MV 60', HD 31, neutral). Scaled Green hide. No eyes, circular gaping maw, tentacles instead of legs. Can shoot tail spikes up to 60'.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


An Orange Man (AC 14, MV 160', HD 4, Chaotic) dressed in furs hunts a band of mutant men. He is armed with a whip and accompanied by 2-12 giant beasts and dinosaurs; these creatures are under his complete control.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
