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.


58 Space Aliens.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 19, MV 150, HD 2, Chaotic): a Blue icthyoid with a smooth hide, 1 eyes, and a beaked mouth.

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


Village of 259 Purple Men ruled by a Neutral 3rd-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 Beautiful Duchess".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


6 Mutant Triceratops (AC 15, MV 90', HD 15, neutral). Suckered Purple hide. Radioactive (if killed explodes for 2 dice radiation damage to all within 100'). Immune to normal weapons.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


A Purple Man hangs limp from a tree. He is pierced head to toe by spikes. Two tridents lay near his lifeless body.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
