d100 Dungeon Decor Table: Rooms

D100 decorator to turn rooms into horror chambers that scare players crapless or make them wonder why would any mad wizard make this or why would a monster do this. Room could mean a open area or several adjacent rooms.

You might up the anti by making magically hostile trap versions or spreading over the dungeon.

They should make party think they are possibly important or a trap. Some not quite right for whole dungeon. To be fair I think dungeon distractions could be a title too but they could be used as brainstorming kickstarters. Just use when room sweeping getting monotonous.
