Welcome to CarcosaEdit

This wiki chronicles an expedition to the new world, in particular a mission to explore an island west of Port Salvadore, the intrepid souls that undertook it, and the events that followed.

The GameEdit

Carcosa is a role-playing game, set in the weird fantasy universe of an alternate Earth. The year is 1498. Brave explorers, with the support of Holy Mother Church and Their Catholic Majesties, have begun conquest of the New World. It has been almost 50 years since land was first discovered to the west, across an ocean thought to be uncrossable. Since then, pressures to discover an alternate trade route to the Indies have produced a series of ruinously expensive ventures into the unknown. The success of a few, and the boundless riches they bring home, become a siren's song, luring prince and pauper alike out into perilous waters.

Our game uses the Nemesis system. The island is inspired from a short story by Robert W Chambers, as well as the game supplement of the same name written by Geoffrey McKinney.
