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.


55 Space Aliens.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 16, MV 120 [land] / 90 [fly], HD 3, Neutral [unintelligent]): a Green insectoid with a suckered hide, 2 eyes, and a suckered mouth.

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


Village of 251 Dolm 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.


You meet "the Mistress of War".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


9 Mutant Stegosaurus (AC 16, MV 60', HD 6, neutral). Smooth Purple hide. Breath weapon. Harmed only by fire.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 18, MV 90' / 120' [swimming], HD 3, Neutral [intelligent]): an orange anthropoid with scaly skin, two yellow eyes, and a toothed mouth. One of its arms is an oversized claw. In its other hand it carries a green mace.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
