Carcosa is about as far from the goofy post-apocalyptic setting of Gamma World as you can get. Posted by RPGPundit at And then, there’s your kids. David Booth February 16, at 6: They’re just choosing to play it in a way that we find really boring.

February 16, at I agree with you, by the way, though it’s not quite as big a deal to carfosa. A full explanation of their editorial methodology is explained in Broodmother Skyfortress. What if they want to date elves?

RPGPundit 13 June at Carcosa in Robert Chambers’ stories was basically a metaphor for hopelessness.

Carcosa (RPG setting)

There’s none of the carcosaa demi-human fantasy races; instead, there are 13 different races of humans, including Green Men, Orange Men, Purple Men as well as transparent Bone Men, and also “Jale”, “Dolm” and “Ulfire” men which are one of many affectations in the setting: I have toyed for the last year or so of checking out Carcosa the first and perhaps only OSR product I would actually buyand don’t mind the hopelessness and all.


Let’s do this thing. The printed book is one of the most beautiful and usefully cross-referenced RPG books Rpv own.

I’ll update the LotFP blog when it’s ready. Brian February 16, at 6: There is no expurgated version of the release. Is there a reason to not give people both?

In his defense, McKinney compares himself yet again to another old-school great, M. Lawful In need of help ; Neutral Rationally motivated ; Chaotic insane.

Do not link to, request or encourage piracy in any way. The world of Carcosa is There’s no reason why whoever’s running the game can’t put places within that world where traditional fantasy archetypes would fit right in.

The Grumpy Celt February 20, at 3: Retrieved from ” http: Its about pages long, very nice paper and apparently quite good binding; it has a half-dustjacket with some promotional blurbs carcoea the book, and the interior front and back covers feature colour hexmaps; the rest of the art interior is black and white. I know you seem to be fanatic about the setting, but it’s pretty clear you don’t know the origin of Carcosa or so I’m guessing and the Hastur mythos.


Now here’s the thing: The magic system for sorcerers is utterly non-vancian. Jale, Dolm, and Ulfire being three colours that don’t exist on earth. The end result is that “by the book”, the races all just blend together without anything carcoea really make them special except maybe the Bone Men ; of course, a GM might go to the trouble of trying to create cultural differences for himself, but as I’ve noted before this strikes me less like some kind of great stand for homeruling and more like laziness on the part of the writer.


Just like in real life, you don’t have carcoaa go along to get along. For example, adventurers would probably come to your shop, and they’d probably be making trouble in the tavern for your wife’s old workmates. And I agree that Broodmother Skyfortress lays out the strategy really well.

I have no problem with dark fantasy, in fact, it’s my preferred flavor of fantasy.
