Beneath the estate above, lies the Arl of Denerim's dungeon. The last residence of many unfortunates who broke the law in Denerim, in particular the elves of the local Alienage. The fact that the Arl's bedroom has a passage adjoining one of the dungeon's multiple torture chambers is the stuff of urban legends.
