Lost Carcosa Update And ADHD Version 1.1

I am making great progress towards the completion of the Lost Carcosa supplement. Currently I have completed the Men and Magic section of Supplement 🜏, and I'm almost complete with the Monsters and Treasure section.

After these portions are completed, I will begin work on what I hope will be the most interesting and useful section of the book: Adventures in Carcosa.

I have come up with 6 regions of Carcosa, and each of these will have a table of 50 possible locations/things to find while exploring those regions (somewhat similar to the "Lay of the Land" tables in Hubris). These regions are:

The Yellow Desert of Rotan
The Colour-Blighted Wastes
The Peaks of Yad-Thoon
The Valley of Yhtill
The Sea of Demhe
The Forest of Ys

In addition to the 50 random features of each region, each region also has at least one more detailed area, and I will also be writing some encounter tables.

I will also be detailing the various gods of Carcosa, which are not limited to the Great Old Ones, though they of course have prominent placement.

At a rough estimate I'd say the finished product should be around 60 pages, but keep in mind I'm not very good at estimates.

Also, in unrelated news, I've updated Adventures in Distressingly Hazardous Dungeons to include some slightly modified wilderness travel rules which are somewhat closer to the OD&D rules.

This updated version can be found here.

  1. I rather like your ADHD rules. They have a simple charm and directness that appeals, and they are very clear. If I weren’t already running Into the Odd on a trial basis I’d be sorely tempted to try these. Perhaps later in the year.

    I also like your stated approach to Carcosa. I’ve never been a big fan of a lot of Lovecraft, but have seen some stuff that has been nicely weird and unsettling and horrific without being grossly so. I’m not a fan of over the top body horror, for example. So I’m looking forward to what you come up with.

  2. I'm with Alistair on this.

    Your choice of source material and your angle of attack on it has a lot of appeal.

    I can see myself running it straight or mashed up with Trey Causey's Weird Adventures possibly with a noirish True Detective slant.
