I've decided to reformat the Carcosa supplement into 3 little grey booklets for my group. The first booklet also also contains the Swords & Wizardry character generation rules. Here's a scan of the test printing:
I may slightly change it for my final printing. Not sure about the little numbered triangle in the corner. I was going for the look of the early modules, or even the Basic/Expert rulebooks, but it might look sharper without it.

Those are really sweet! I'm not sure about the triangles, but the Cthulhu-style graphics from the MM really set the tone!
The color one is pretty slick, too, but it looks used already.
I guess I'm going to have to try to do something like this myself.

The only way this could be cooler is if you went the extra mile and spliced the appropriate rules from the 3lbbs right into your new grey booklets.
That's something to think about.
I'm just in the process of doing volume 1 that contains player info from Carcosa and includes Swords and Wizardry's character generation rules (sans magic-user, cleric, and races).
For Monsters and Treasure I was planning to add an appendix of the D&D monsters Geoffrey suggested, like dinosaurs from Blackmoor, or the Swords and Wizardry equivalents.
For Wilderness Adventures, it would contain the Carcosa sandbox, does it need anything from the original Wilderness Adventure? I don't see fighting men on Carcosa needing rules to construct keeps - they'd never make it that far. ;D
