Welcome to Dread Prison. Based off of the old mod, Prison of Despair, this mod provides you with your very own, personal prison. You can send anyone from bandits and thieves to Jarls and guards into your prison and watch them rot behind bars forever. There is also an arena option for you to challenge your prisoners fighting for survival.

-Cell Block
-Torture Chamber
-Control Room
-Warden's Quarters
-Maximum Security Cell Block
-Prison of Agony
-Prison Ship

Cell Block:
The cell block is the most important part of your prison. It has 20 cells where you can imprison anyone that you want. There is a chest at the end of the ramp after you enter the cell block that has all the spells for the prison. To imprison someone, simply use the "Dread Prison - Arrest" spell and use the on screen menu to pick where you would like them to go.

The arena is where you can force your prisoners to fight each other or you can go in and challenge yourself. You are able to send whichever prisoners you want into 4 different "groups". These groups will then fight each other when you open the gates. You can also spawn many different enemies or set off traps to make the fight more interesting or even challenge yourself.

Torture Chamber:
The torture chamber has 4 options as of now and is currently being expanded to satisfy all your torturing desires. The torture chamber spell can be found inside the chest located in the cell block with the other spells for the mod.

Control Room:
The control room is where you can customize the little details in your prison. You can choose between Dwarven, Stormcloak, or Imperial banners. You can also choose what armor your guards wear, if they are male or female, or if you have guards in the prison at all. With upcoming updates and add-on's there will be more features added to the control room for even more customization.

Maximum Security Cell Block:
Beyond the torture chamber is the maximum security cell block. Here you will find 5 cells; 2 high priority cells and 3 average cells. This cell block has its own elite guards and has different levels of security for you to choose from. It is the perfect place for the most dangerous of your prisoners.

Prison of Agony:
Prison of Agony is a secondary prison of the mod that you have to complete a small dungeon to earn. It will add 12 more cells after you reclaim it with its own spell. If you would like the prison without having to complete the dungeon, you can simply use the "repair" button in the control room. To start the quest, a courier will come up to you and give you a note.

Special Notes:
-As of Dread Prison Update 1.6, all spells for the prison will be found in the chest in the cell block.
-Do not clean the mod using TES5Edit, it removes needed navmesh from the prison.
