CARCOSA. Alien city in the Hyades on the shore of the Lake of Hali (though others have placed it in the Gobi Desert or near the Lake of Galilee). Carcosa is a metropolis of tall, black buildings, mysterious events, and inexplicable sounds and sights. The architecture varies widely in style, and a traveler's surroundings often change when his or her attention is elsewhere. Across the lake from the city is the palace of Yhtill, where the coming of the King is re-enacted for all eternity. Overhead are the planet's two moons, as well as Aldebaran and the Hyades. Carcosa has connections to our world, though these are often tenuous. Portals, sometimes in the form of works of art, can conduct a person into Carcosa. In addition, a city found to be degraded enough may be incorporated into Carcosa wholesale, after an evaluation of its worthiness by the Pallid Mask. Very few have visited Carcosa and returned to tell the tale. It is here that the play The King in Yellow takes place. It has been said that Carcosa was the original home of humanity. The Plastic Wax Factory, purveyors of intricate and fine molten effigies. All your gods, demons, devils, angels, monsters and fey folk, creatures of the abyss to Leech Lords of the Cthulhu mythos, witches, warlocks, and lunatic residents of asylums the world over. All are represented here in glorious molten plastic wax, set alight and melted into puddles of primordial grotesquerie. Recommended for the mad and delirious and those fine folks from Leeds, Hull and Scarborough.
