d100 Catacomb Dungeon Dressings

This is for decrepit built underground cemeteries under churches, ruins, cities and dungeons. Roll a few for a small complex or roll as a theme for new areas opened up or levels. Ive been playing with the Zac S system of placing several courtyards about and some other features like from my pre-keyed locations or from a table. Then I connect them with shapes based on letterforms for passages and perhaps add soe more rooms where lines terminate or meet. Ive done a few and has got me doing the whole chaotic complex thng. Normally my stuff is too sensible, rigid and boxy.
