Stock The Dungeon With Rooms That Don't Suck, Fast

Step One: Go here and generate a random dungeon with numbered rooms:
Step Two Scroll down on this here blog entry page to where it says "Room List"

Step Three: Highlight the entire list. Cut it. Paste it in the upper box here.

Step Four: Press "Pick Random Line!" one time for each room in your dungeon, like:

1.Hollow eggs contain random live miniature humanoids.
3.Floor like the sea. Save vs drowning.
4.Kobolds lair in the celing, with boiling oil.
6.Poorly-disguised storage pit contains hands of glory.
7.Chains and bells tinkle in putrid, moist darkness.
8.Large brazier in floor, crated provisions, blankets.
9.Vandalized portraits. Fixing them solves a problem.
10.Luminescent ink fountain. Anything removed glows ten days.
11.Seems like river Styx goes through here.
12.Friendly flesh golem provides possible henchman.
13.Beholder holds court over blinded medusas.
14.Footprints, running.

Step Five: Season to taste.


You can and totally should save the whole list as a text file and add your own rooms over time, steal ones you like anywhere you find them, and cut out ones you think are lame--just remember to keep the descriptions one line long or less or the program won't work.

Also remember since there's already a map you don't need descriptions of the dimensions of the rooms themselves or doors.

If you want certain kinds of monsters in the dungeon, go here, post the room list in one box, put a list the monsters you want to use in one of the other boxes (Object Input 1 or Object Input 2) and a few blank lines and it will create a new list below which has ever possible combination of room and monster, plus some empty rooms.
Then you can cut that list and go back up to Step Three: now the dungeon is all about whatever monsters you wanted to use.

This list of 1000 ish rooms below was generated collaboratively on Google Plus here and here. I removed some of the stupid ones from the master list, feel free to put them back.

(If you click on the link and it doesn't lead to anything it's because you haven't been asked to be added to my G+ RPG circle and well whose fault is that?)
