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 Mummy Brain.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 16, MV 60 [land] / 120 [fly], HD 3, Chaotic): a Brown, Bone, Ulfire and Jale octopoid with a smooth hide, 1 eyes, and a beaked mouth. Immune to heat/fire.

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


Village of 255 White Men ruled by a Neutral 5th-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 Overseer of All the Seas".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


12 Mutant Stegosaurus (AC 16, MV 60', HD 6, neutral). Suckered Jale hide.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


Monastery of 56 Brown Men ruled by "the Golden Hand," a Chaotic 5-th Level Fighter.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
