d100 Secret Rooms

I have players that always search for secret rooms and occasionally they roll very well and i want to reward them. These shouldn't upset your dungeon too much. Most not especially rewarding with the more gonzo results last.

You could put 2d6 of these on a level for a quick bit of dungeon filler.

In my friend Herbie's fighting fantasy game sub tunnels are under every level where monsters spy on intruders, first aid teams hide, monsters change costumes to pretend to be new monsters and all kinds of troubles.

Inspired me to do a shrine generator later.

1d10 So now you have found door now what?
1 Simple mechanism easily opens
2 Difficult to find opening mechanism requires second search or loud smashing to open
3 Door is locked
4 Door is alarmed and signals other area if opened secretly
5 Door is alarmed or very noisy may alert others or occupants
6 Door is trapped
7 Door is jammed, possibly spiked from inside, need to be forced noisily
8 Door requires a puzzle to open
9 Door opened by mechanism somewhere else
10 Re roll 1d3 times, if get 10 again then cursed or magically trapped

1d10 Quick secret room
