portalentries.des - 6 entry vaults for Ossuary, 6 entry vaults for Volcano, 7 entry vaults for Trove.
serialshop.des - 12 small shop vaults to use with serial_shop. Lower weights are assigned to the ones I thought were more gimmicky/weird.

In 0.12, we had 776 new vaults, in 0.13 just 228, and only 49 since then. And the branching was on Sep 24. Good that at least s?????? resumes the work.

Kind of silly to try and objectively divide vault numbers by version with such a limited range, especially when 0.12 was so exceptional; pushes to add mini-vaults to each branch, the Vaults layout overhaul, sprints, some ideas based on hyper-generic vaults to put vaults for nearly anywhere. After such a large push, most of the bigger vault submitters transitioned towards other work, and it's non-trivial to produce more vaults when concepts are already executed possibly better in already in ones.
 
Still, it's quite nice to see some of my hyper-specific vault requests from some sorely lacking niches come to fruition.
Still some quick notes worth making though:
 * _orc_flooded_monolith uses PLACE: Orc:3, presumably as a testing line.
 * The serial_shops parts don't need to use WEIGHT: 10, and I hope people reading much about vaults will remember basic things such as the default WEIGHT: 10. Just a nitpick.
 * _shop_statue_plus could probably be smarter about the no_rtele_into part, though I'm not going to press on it.
 * _inconvenience_store ruins search and auto-travel to that specific store, I'm not fond of it being attached to serial_shops even with a low weight.
 * The non-unrand-lord pan decor vaults could probably use a plain luniq tag, unless that's the author's intent to place them more than once per floor.
Probably don't need to really upload more .txt files, just needs the committer to keep the above stuff in mind.

The creativity at times in this batch is impressive, and the luniq_decor_lord stuff is inspired. I look forward to seeing such work get in.

The PLACE: Orc:3 line is indeed a testing line. I thought I'd gotten them all this time...

I do recall that the default weight is 10, but the other serial_shops have explicit weights even when that weight is 10, and I figured, who am I to mess with tradition? Likewise, _shop_statue_plus does no_rtele_into in the same way the existing shop_statue does, with a tag instead of KPROPs. Also, the existing basic "shop" vault has a weight of 100. Would that need to get bumped up with all the new additions?

If necessary, _inconvenience_store can just lose the shop tag and be stuck in shops.des with the other non-serial shops. Or just get removed entirely, I suppose.

I don't have any particular intent one way or the other on whether the _pan_sigil_* vaults should be able to be placed more than once per floor. A luniq tag would be fine.

These have landed as 0.14-a0-1636-gacc6684, with the exception of inconvenience_store. I added the luniq tag to the sigil vaults as well.

I'm kind of reluctant to let a lindwurm place in a volcano entry vault, but we'll see how it works out (if it doesn't, I'm going to replace it with a fire drake).
