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 Cthugah's Flame Creature.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 15, MV 150, HD 5, Chaotic): a Purple octopoid with a smooth hide, no eyes, and no mouth.

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


Village of 344 Dolm Men ruled by "the Flower of the Bringer," a Chaotic 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 Monster of All Graces".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


3 Mutant Pentaceratops (AC 15, MV 90', HD 10, neutral). Feathered Ulfire hide. Covered in spines (when attacked in melee attacker takes a dCarcosa damage and it can throw them like a wyvern).

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


12 Black Men led by putrid smelling Sorcerer (AC 18, MV 120', HD 3, Chaotic) are in the middle of casting Manifestation of the Putrescent Stench. The Sorcerer is armed with a laser pistol and wears a bright orange alien space suit.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
