Blood and Eyes of the Carcosans.

On the G+ Carcosa group and my website, I have offered a few ideas for even more ways to make the Carcosans a bit weirder. The blogs Barnie the Flumph & Save vs Total Party Kill have also done some excellent write ups on how they make the Carcosa races different in their games.

So a few ideas:
Different Colored Blood:
To add some weird to the game, I gave each of the races different exotic colored blood in my campaign.
* Black Men: Blood: Is the color of Oxidized Bismuth.
* Blue Men: Blood: Looks like olive green tinted Mercury.
* Bone Men: Blood: Looks like a clear Aquamarine color outside the body.
* Brown Men: Blood: Looks like bright yellow-Green. (Like "The Predator".)
* Dolm Men: Blood: Looks like Brazilian Opal.
* Green Men: Blood: Looks like metallic purple.
* Jale Men: Blood: Has the color of brightly polished brass.
* Orange Men: Blood: Is a metallic turquise color.
* Purple Men: Blood: Is an orange tinted gold color.
* Red Men: Blood: Is a semi-transparent amber color.
* Ulfire Men: Blood: Is a neon brown color (Your brain hurt yet?)
* White Men: Blood: Is an oily black color.
* Yellow Men: Blood: Is a gunmetal blue color.

Eyes of the Carcosans:
Finished drawing these up this morning.

Returning to the Blog...

So it's been ages since I wrote on my blog.
Last few months, aside from moving a few times, I have been playing in numerous G+ games, including HMS Apollyon (Dungeon of Signs), Blackmash (No Fair Fights), The Successors DCC RPG Campaign (Starting Over With The OSR), Dungeon Moon (Paper & Pencils blog) as well as Masters of Carcosa (Save vs . Total Party Kill).

Well decided to start a Carcosa website called Hyadian Schism: Chaos in Carcosa.
Hyadian Schism

There you will also find some of the High res Carcosa Hex Maps I made over the last few months.

PLEASE NOTE: The website is a work in progress. Some areas are still blank and others are an unfiltered mess of uncleaned up data, such as character creation data literally stripped from the character creator program and dumped on pages. Will be cleaned up eventually.
