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.


8 Velociraptors.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 13, MV 240 [swimming only], HD 3, Chaotic): a Orange, Purple, Jale and White octopoid with a smooth hide, 5 eyes, and multiple mouths. Regenerate 1 HD every 1-3 rounds.

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


Castle of 70 Blue Men led by "the Omnipotent Glory," a Chaotic 6th-level Sorcerer.

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


8 Mutant Lambeosaurus (AC 15, MV 120', HD 12, neutral). Furred Purple hide.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


Village of 366 Brown Men ruled by "the Silver Fist," a Lawful 6th-level Fighter. The Silver Fist rides into battle on cybernetic horses and wields a mysterious purple sword.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
