A Carcosa Location & Encounter Table For Your Old School Carcosa Campaign

The Elder Things colony mountain cities of Y'Reea .

The Elder Things colony mountain cities of Y'Reea ..
One of the most active of the Elder Things colonies upon Carcosa is the Valley of Y'Reea. This forbidding landscape is a colony of the Elder Things from the time of the Shaggoth Rebellions . The place is avoided at all costs by the human inhabitants of Carcosa. The echoes of piping whistle on the wind. The whole place is encapsotated by a psychic field. Those who venture into the place are caught within a mind domination field of these ancient creatures. There are however monks of  Shub Niggurath who trade medallions for a small piece of brain matter. These mediallions   will resist the machinations of the Elder Things for 18 hours. After which things held within the medallions  will eat their way into the minds of the user unless a saving throw is rolled. Why would anyone venture into these places & risk the wrath of the shaggoths? This is one of the last unspoiled places where the bio creations & technology of the Elder Things can be found.
