Random generators have been used for solo or GM-less play since the earliest incarnations of the idea. I think the first ones were explicitly for solo play but I won't swear to it. Regardless, since we're trying to make it as "complete" as possible, we definitely aim to support this kind of play to our utmost. The dungeon you make will make about as much sense as Buffalo Castle :)

And when you're asking a computer to do things, "eyeball it" is terrible instructions :)

As a Canadian, I sympathize. I'll look into it; it's all in Yards internally, so following the SJG standard of 1 yard = 1 meter is doable.
