Encounter tables for dungeon returns, Mark II

Due to the popularity of this table and the fact that it had numerous options for improvement, I have decided to repost a longer version.

This table can be consulted when the adventurers return to a previously explored dungeon level, and can be checked for any encounter the adventurers had.

If any monsters survived:

1: Encounter remains unchanged
2: Creatures have moved to another nearby area
3: Creatures have moved to faraway area
4: Creatures have allied with other creatures
5: Creatures have gained reinforcements.
6: Creatures have improved defenses.
7: Creatures are weaker now
8: Creatures have hidden any treasures
9: Creatures have new leader (for intelligent creatures)
10: Creatures have left the dungeon completely

If the monsters were destroyed, give a 2 in 6 chance of scavengers being present.
If no scavengers are present, give a 1 in 6 chance of a new monster group having moved into the location.
