Monster zoo

Room full of monsters (can even reach 100 monsters in one, depends on its size), both standard and unique mini-bosses. Finding one and killing every monster will both provide an achievement and an artifact.  Leaving the floor by using the stairs or by escaping to the Pocket Dimension will forfeit your reward.  (Currently it is possible for Two Monster Zoo's to be 'Opened' at one time, even if they are not conjoined. Making the monster counter in excess of 100).

The Relics Found on the Third Level in a Certain Room placement (Usually Guarded by Three or More 'Special' Mobs.) Clicking on it opens a scroll which reads "Here lies the Tomb of the unknown hero. He came from another world and Departed ours too soon. His deeds are many and legendary. We put his rocket launcher somewhere safe.". Use is Unknown.
Bookshelves Bookshelf.png Bookshelves hold crafting recipes and can be found on any level. It is possible to get the same recipe as before, the bookshelf will just say nothing of interest was found.
Lever Lever.png Levers do several things. They unlock Uberchests, usually the one closest to them. Levers also open up secret compartments that have items in them. Be careful though, sometimes levers can activate a bunch of traps, making it very dangerous to get out if you don't have a good trap score!
