Carcosa Calendar Revisited.

So I have been programming lately. Nothing spectacular. Just giving the old DARKBASIC PRO a try again. Made some character, npc, and monster generators, plus working on a few mapping programs.
Though few months back I had forgotten that I had written up a Celestial Events program.
It assumes that at year zero there was some crazy alignment of all the planets in the system, the two suns and both moons of carcosa. From there it calculates when moons are new/full, when planets are aligned and when the secondary sun in my campaigns is either eclipsing or being eclipsed by the primary sun.
(Decided each month represents an eclipse phase of the suns.)
I set it to do a print up of the year 1138... Ya I know, but it was the first big number that came to mind.

As was commented on my earlier Calendar post, it's true. Most players won't care about such things. Though I do have a couple who love this stuff.

This gives me a chance to prepare weird events triggered by celestial alignments.

That would be normal on Carcosa...

This would be normal on Carcosa...
That said, I am tempted to make my own version of this to use as a lawn ornament. To hell with your lawn gnome!

Inspired by Role-Player Hater's blog post.


A few months back I had read E. M. Lamb's blog (Role-Player Hater), discussing his participation in S.P.'s (How to Succeed in RPGs or Die Trying) Carcosa game.
Quote:
"First store we walk into has a dog, except we all kind of forgot we were playing Carcosa. It was more like a praying mantis the size of a dog, but instead of the normal mantis head, it was a baby’s. Yeah, it’s Carcosa."

I felt like drawing this morning so figured I would give it a shot.

MrZarono's Amazing Mythos Art!

LOVE THIS ART!
Perfect inspiration for Call of Cthulhu and/or Carcosa dark tomes.

Though do keep in mind that some of the art there will be NOT SAFE FOR WORK. Though that probably goes for most of DeviantART anyways. 

Just had to share a few of his images. Check out his stuff!

Carcosa Group Project over at ODandD board

Over at the Original Dungeons and Dragons Discussion (ODandD Discussion), I started a thread for group projects.
Hoping a few of you out there are interested in contributing to the project. :)
The idea is take a hex from the Carcosa map and the community collectively details it.
Crusssdaddy has suggested HEX 0702. (right in the middle of The Bottomless Lochs.)
HEX 0702

I have begun detailing sub-hex 3010 (of HEX 0702) with maps and will be writing an adventure for that area.
