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.


3 B'yakhees.

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

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


Village of 239 Green Men ruled by a Neutral 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 Blooming Captain".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
