Those who opposed him died or if some future purpose was seen in them, they were bound in chains and carted to the dungeons. There they sat until called, or until the need was great, or worse, until some lord of Aufstrag thought to use them for his pleasure, often in the Torture Gardens. The Gallery quickly became a night mare of the damned, for most were forgotten in the dark, dank cells and died in madness and despair.
The first to occupy the dungeons were the Aenochians themselves. Any of that noble people found wanting were carted off to the dungeons and imprisoned. It is they who coined the name of the Level, for in it they deemed their souls were bound and lost to the Arc of Time, such that they could not escape, even in death.
