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 Dolm Worms.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 19, MV None, HD 1, Chaotic): a White amoeboid with a scaled hide, 4 eyes, and a toothed mouth.

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


Village of 290 Orange Men ruled by "the Fountain of Glory," a Chaotic 9th-level Fighter.

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


You meet "the Queen of the Master".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


9 Mutant Pentaceratops (AC 15, MV 90', HD 8, neutral). Feathered Bone hide. Immune to cold.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


Citadel of 98 Red Men led by "The Ram", a Lawful 4th-level Fighter. "The Ram" is a behemoth of a man, never seen without his indestructible helmet.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
