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.


2 Shoggoths.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 12, MV 90 [land] / 120 [fly] / 150 [swim], HD 7, Chaotic): a Black insectoid with a smooth hide, 4 eyes, and a circular gaping maw. Surprised only on a 1.

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


Castle of 32 Purple Men led by "the Gem of Wisdom," a Neutral 4th-level Fighter.

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


2 Mutant Ankylosaurus (AC 21, MV 60', HD 12, neutral). Feathered Blue hide. Touch turns anyone to slime. Immune to cold.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


Village of 278 Yellow Men ruled by "the Evil Queen," a Chaotic 9-th Level Sorcerer.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
