"There is no place in Tamriel I'd have rather seen that curdled, sump wizard, Mannimarco, condemned to than the Dread Cellar. While its hospitality might not be the equal to that of Molag Bal's realm, it's a damnable pit I have visitation privileges to."—Abnur Tharn

The Dread Cellar is a group dungeon in northern Blackwood. It is one of two dungeons available with the Waking Flame DLC, the other being Red Petal Bastion.

The dungeon once served as a prison run by the Imperial Battlemages, but the facility was abandoned after the collapse of the Empire. It has recently been taken over by the Order of the Waking Flame and their Daedric allies, the Crimson Oath.
