Nasty, Brutish, and Short
Brutal, dreamlike, savage. Grim Carcosa is a planet 153 light years away from Earth, orbiting a star in the Hyades Cluster. Named for the alien city at its heart, Carcosa is a grim, wasted land. The races were formed long ago by the god Shub-Niggurath, as organisms formed from her protoplasmic bulk. The Serpent Men formed the thirteen races of humanity to use in their sorcerous experiments.
The Serpent Men died. The Races of Men still live.
