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 Pterodactyls.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 17, MV 240, HD 8, Chaotic): a Blue anthropoid with a smooth hide, 2 eyes, and a circular gaping maw.

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


Village of 280 Ulfire Men ruled by "the Fountain of Winter," a Lawful 4th-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 Rain of Dreamers".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


10 Mutant Iguanadon (AC 16, MV 150', HD 3, neutral). Smooth Dolm hide. Circular gaping maw. Regenerate 1 HD every 1-3 rounds. Surprised only on a 1.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


The mutilated bodies of two Ulfire children lay next to the dead body of a Jale Sorcerer. On the Sorcerer's person is a book outlining how to cast The Accursed Sounding of the Void.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
