Version 0.28: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.

While monsters do not normally spawn once you enter a floor, some effects or branches may generate new monsters as you stay in it. Specifically, there is a "monster generation rate" (MGR), and every 5 turns, there is a (5 in MGR) chance of a monster spawning somewhere on the level; a higher value means a slower spawn rate. This monster will normally fit the branch it was spawned in. The MGR's value varies:

Otherwise, monster spawn is disabled.

For worshippers of Cheibriados, the MGR in the Abyss or while holding the Orb of Zot is doubled (halving the spawn rate).
