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 B'yakhees.

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


Spawn of Shub-Niggurath (AC 14, MV 90 [land] / 210 [fly], HD 10, Chaotic): a Red crustacean with a smooth hide, 1 eyes, and multiple mouths.

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


Village of 304 Orange Men ruled by a Neutral 5th-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 Advocate of the Master".

Everyone you encounter in Carcosa has a ridiculous title.


3 Mutant Paleoscincus (AC 24, MV 30', HD 13, neutral). Feathered Purple hide. Genius Intelligence (18+ Int) and 1-4 psychic powers. Immune to heat/fire.

Several mutant dinosaurs are described in Carcosa.


Village of 366 Brown Men ruled by "the Silver Fist," a Lawful 6th-level Fighter. The Silver Fist rides into battle on cybernetic horses and wields a mysterious purple sword.

Most hex descriptions in Carcosa are kind of crazy.
