The sound of the ~ThingThatMakesNoiseConstantlyAndAMonsterCanFitInIt is audible throughout if PCs enter through the north entrance. The ceilings are ~NumberBetween4And10 feet high.
Check for wandering monsters every 3 game minutes or whenever PCs make a lot of noise, roll d10:
1-2 d6 ~Vermin
3-4 d4 ~HumanoidType1 s (with keys to green locks)
5 1 Giant Collecting ~CrawlingInsect looking to kill PCs and steal their ~ThingsPeopleLoseInADungeon
1 Stairs to surface/next level
2 ~BeautifulCreature-It is a foot tall & eerily beautiful. It is harmless. If unmolested, it will continue to roam the halls.
3 Fragments of a dazzling ~InterestingSubstance mosaic, very damaged, are here--a landscape with only a pair of white legs ending in hooves are visible so far.
Pieces of the mosaic can be found throughout the dungeon, and will fuse to the wall if placed on the mosaic.
The true form of the mosaic is of ~DeadAncientHero of the ~kindofancienthumanoidcivilization on a horse--and assembling it will create a work of art worth PC level x 1000gp, however it is possible to construct false forms by accident or design.
Existing mosaic+humanoid upper body = a demon. The ~PowerfulDemonicCreature in 76 will begin calling anyone present to it. Save vs spell.
Existing mosaic+missing front horse legs+human upper body = centaur. Each round, violent madness will be inflicted on whichever party member rolls the lowest on a d20 until they leave the room.
Missing pieces are in rooms 19, 87, 50
