Random Carcosa

This is very much a work in progress. (As evidenced by the repeating entries you might see below.) Anyway, here are 16 random hexes.


Village of 232 Bone Men ruled by "the Queen of Wisdom," a Chaotic 9th-level Sorcerer.

Citadel of 33 Orange Men led by a Neutral 2nd-level Fighter.


A Blue Man (AC 16, MV 120', HD 2, Lawful) with a cybernetic augmentation that allows him to extend his head several meters above his body is surveying the wilderness. He is armed with a bright yellow mace and can not be surprised.

Castle of 43 Purple Men led by "the Eyes of War," a Neutral 4th-level Sorcerer.


2 Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 15, MV 120 [land] / 210 [fly] / 180 [swim], HD 3, Chaotic): a Blue hexapod with a smooth hide, multiple/insectile eyes, and no mouth.

Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 19, MV 210, HD 2, Chaotic): a Orange ophidioid with a scaled hide, 6 eyes, and a beaked mouth. Immune to cold.


8 Primordial Ones.

Monastery of 60 White Men led by a Chaotic 6th-level Sorcerer.


1 Mummy Brain.

Two Blue men lay dead on the ground. One is holding a gamma radiation riffle with 10 charges left. There is a 1 in 6 chance the rifle will also irradiate the shooter when discharged.

6 of the Great Race.


1 Dolm Pudding.

Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 13, MV 210, HD 3, Neutral [unintelligent]): a Brown arachnoid with a feathered hide, no eyes, and a beaked mouth. Its touch causes paralysis.

Bipedal humanoid robot (AC 18, MV 120', HD 8) carrying a spear, with a single spotlight eye in the center of a cylindrical head. It is dragging a dead velociraptor behind it. It has learned how to hunt by spying on humans, but doesn't understand what to do with the dead animals: it just drags them back to its cave.


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 17, MV 90 [land] / 210 [fly] / 180 [swim], HD 5, Neutral [unintelligent]): a Bone crustacean with a smooth hide, no eyes, and multiple mouths.

Mummy with lower half of body buried (HD 5, AC 5, eyes shoot 2 lasers, Save vs. Death Ray or take 5 dice of damage). It wears an emerald medallion (2000 GP). Quiescent unless the emerald medallion is disturbed. Two dead orange men lay nearby, one with a scorched hole blown in his head, the other with a scorched hole blown in his chest. 1-6 primitively armed Orange Men huddle at a safe distance discussing how to relieve the mummy of the medallion. They are not interested in treasure other than gems and technology, but will serve if offered such incentives.


A disfigured two-headed mutant man lays face down in the ground. His body is half purple & half blue. Characters who investigate the body must make a Save vs. Death Ray each turn or suffer a random mutation.

The bodies of countless Black Men spill out of a door set into the side of a mountain and completely fill the 10' wide shaft leading into the underground. Obscured by the bodies are ancient Snake Men runes describing 2-8 random sorcerous rituals.
