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 Worm.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 16, MV 60 [land] / 180 [swim], HD 2, Chaotic): a Ulfire, White and Dolm crustacean with a suckered hide, 2 eyes, and no mouth.

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


Citadel of 109 Black Men led by a Chaotic 7th-level Sorcerer.

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


You meet "the Apotheosis of Winter".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


Mutant Mosasaurus (AC 14, MV 30' [150' Swim], HD 16, neutral). Scaled White hide. Can cast invisibility at will. When visible, has see-through skin like a Bone Man. Laser Eyes Harmed only by fire.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


A group of 6 disease ridden Ulfire cannibals feast on the remains of some Bone Men.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
