Area 9: Prisoner Storage
The ceiling is 3.5m high. The only light source is Hwallung's lamp. There is no furniture or other furnishings in this area.
Prisoners captured by the Servants of Acephax are stored here, pushed up against one another in piles between the various pillars. There will be 1d6+4 prisoners here. If any named NPCs are kidnapped, they will be held here unless they are in the presence of the Brides.
A typical prisoner has their legs bound together, their hands bound together behind their back, and a gag stuffed in their mouth. There is a 50% chance that at least one of the bindings is coated with the Spume of Acephax, in which case the prisoner will be suffering its effects in the relevant body parts. The prisoners' bonds are rope, except for the gags, which are made from cloth rags.
The jailer sleeps in the area. He is a big, heavily muscled man covered in runic tatoos named Hwallung who takes care of the prisoners until they are disposed of. He has a 50% chance of being in area 9 at any given time of day or night. He has the only lamp in the area, and he extinguishes it when he sleeps. He will remain to guard the prisoners even if the alarm has been raised.
