Monster spawner

It's almost ready. With monsters there is need to filter more powerful monsters to certain type of levels. I'm not yet sure how to do that, but maybe adding a generic level theme type (cave, deep cave, outdoor level, etc.) and then select monsters along with the individual terrain type. I could also try to make monsters more or less data-driven with maybe some special cases that are possibly easier to handle directly. There is only 25 monster types in Teemu so there is plenty of room for new monsters.

Before I start wildly adding monsters I need to look at the monster family class and see if it could hold more basic type data for monsters, taking some data out of the monster type class. That way adding a monster requires less data input and a longer list of monsters is easier to maintain.
