About Kangband; it is the source for a lot of the things poschengband inherited though zangband and hengband. Town buildings, town quests, dungeon quests etc.

The questfile formats from Kangband through to poschengband are rather similar, with the latter being easier to create and work with. If you can hack some procgen into poschengbandlike quests I'd be interested in stealing it.

I have been thinking of using conditionals to randomise layout the way they are currently used to randomise quest rewards, so thieves hideout would have half a dozen layouts. There is a bug which defaults the random number to 0 in some situations. We have a fix for it (thankyou Sideways) but I haven't committed it yet because it'll break savefiles and I have a character on the go.
