Lost Carcosa is an exciting new supplement for the ORIGINAL FANTASY RPG, inspired by the works of Robert W. Chambers, H.P. Lovecraft, Ambrose Bierce, Edgar Rice Burroughs, and Robert E. Howard! Within its pages, you will find:
- Dozens of horrifying new monsters
- 11 new spells for use with either the Cleric or Magic-User classes
- 21 new magic items
- 7 regions, detailed with encounter tables and 50 possible things to find in each region
- Simplified rules for wilderness generation and exploration
- Brief biographies of prominent NPCs and deities
- And more!"
And then we get into 'Lost Carcosa' proper yes that's right this actually is a 'Robert W. Chambers' campaign setting and its pretty detailed with random enconters, adventure goals, & much more thrown in.
Then there's the Dieties of Carcosa including the King in Yellow himself, and more Lovecraftian dieties to boot! And then we dive into exceptionally important NPC's on Carcosa such as; "THE WOMAN IN THE WALLPAPER The King in Yellow feeds on intelligence and creativity, inciting obsession and madness. The Woman in the Wallpaper is one of his many victims, corrupted into a monster by his unholy influence. Once she was an ordinary young woman from Earth, suffering from clinical depression in an age where treatment for such a condition was locking the unfortunate woman in an empty room for days. The King in Yellow crept in through the ugly yellow wallpaper which decorated her room, and began to corrupt the woman. She started to see impossible patterns in the lines of the walls, illuminated by the pallid moonlight, until she could see a distorted, crawling figure behind the wallpaper. In time, she came to realize that it was herself, and in a frenzy stripped the wallpaper off the wall and began to change into something not quite human. Her husband died of shock"
And then we get 'Appendix A' a random mutation table & 'Appendix B' -'Appendix B: Dark Young Of Sheol-Nugganoth' section! And then inspirational films, literature, etc.
Alright let me slow down because all of this is packed into Eighty Nine pages of a glorious Lovecraftian campaign of a supplement in 'Lost Carcosa'. And what 'Lost Carcosa' reminds me of is Dave Hargrave's Arduin rpg supplements. Lots of incredibly interesting & somewhat insane Lovecraftian ideas thrown into the mix of 'Lost Carcosa' that you as a DM can use or not.
