Curse of the Crimson Throne
As is evidenced by the shadows on the wall, these kitchens were used for far more than just food preparation. One of Kazavon’s favorite means of execution was to lock a victim in one of the huge ovens during his evening meal and slowly fire it while the bound victim struggled. Sometimes he ate the victim as well. When Mandraivus arrived, all of the degenerate, villainous cooks were thrown into the ovens for a bit of just rewards. As the castle’s dark energy rose up, their ashes transformed into cinder ghouls.
