There is already code in the snippets site that can be easily modifiable
to make a dynamic zone. I'd like to see something more like patch
branching from main roads.

Like you have a main road (say, the road to king welmar, to give a common
place) and the branches out of it that are not hardcoded (mines, etc.)
could be randomized. One in 10 or in 20 chance of a road branching off
from the main road every zone reset, no reconfiguration while people in
the branches, random level of "deepness". Etc.

Anyone thought of this before? Is it even a good idea? this would mix the
previsibility of know roads with the randomness of unknown forests.
