Megadungeon Wandering Monsters

I used the Rules Cyclopedia charts as a base, and shuffled around some things.  I disliked the random human entry that took up so much space, and figure that NPC Party pretty much covers that.  I plan on making a separate chart for that result, which will include a possibility of a lone person.

When I stock the dungeon these will be the monsters I plan on using, though I'll use the number of creatures as indicated by the lair entry.  I think that I'm going to restrict each level to a single NPC party, so if I roll more than one of them for a given level, I'll use that roll to do something weird that isn't on the chart.

I was thinking also, that rather than roll for each room specifically, I will roll up a bunch of room encounters, and then fit them into the dungeon in slightly less random order.  So I can group a couple of orc rooms together to make a clan.  Anyway, that's the idea.
