Room/Place Contents Table

I've found myself running impromptu dungeons in my last two sessions of suburb crawling in The City and wrote this table to quickly stock a dungeon/dangerous place on the fly at the table. Additionally I've included a building layout visual table I put together to help give me floorplans as I need them.
