Iron Gate Prison
Iron Gate Prison is a large affair. The building rises 4 stories tall and has 3 huge wings. Only the central wing has the 4th floor, the other 2 have only 3.
The lowest level of the Central wing houses the water cells. These hallways run down a main branch with 6 secondary branches coming off them at regular intervals. Each secondary branch has 5 5’ cells made of rusting iron bars. Each cell is 7’ high and 5’ on a side and completely open. At all times at least 2’ of water fills these cells. The aisle that runs between the cells is 5’ wide making each branch hall 25’ long and 15’ wide. The Central corridor is 10’ wide and 100’ long. The main wing is 60’ deep giving the building a 100’ by 60’ with a 7’ ceiling. There are 60 water cells on the bottom level. The next 2 floors follow the same plan only the cells are walled in brick and dry. The third floor houses the guard barracks and the Warden’s office. Each side wing has 2 floors of cells and a barrack/kitchen armory on the top floor. This gives the Iron Gate Prison 420 5’ by 5’ cells. At any time between 100 and 150 guards are housed in the Prison. In the dry cells it is not uncommon for 2 prisoners to be forced to share the tiny space.
