At the risk of sounding commercial here... have you ever considered using
TableMaster for this? Really! You could set up a few tables to generate an
endless set of room contents, arrangements, and of course monsters.

Very simple example:

.table Room-Contents
Room contains:
.roll <1d6>
1  <1d3> Bear\s
2  <2d4> Wolves
3  <1d2> Giant snake\s
4  1 Giant
5  <1d3+1> Gargoyles
6  <1d8> Orc\s

You can get as fancy as you want with this. For example, here's some output
from one of the tables from Fantasy Table Pack II:

It would actually be a fairly trivial affair to set up some tables to
generate your own unique "Death Test" for every run!
