Everfall: Rise of Nations
The Block is a large prison complex located several miles east of Dos, so named because it is an almost featureless steel building in the shape of a rectangular prism. The prison is staffed entirely by Gear, but there is significant diversity among its inmates, who are often overflow from prisons in Grimaldi or Thellonde.
Inmates are kept in small, single-person cells that they are not permitted to leave for any reason. They are served only one meal a day: a glass of water and a gray chunk of processed nutriment whose components are impossible to determine. The food and water are enough to keep the prisoners alive, but not enough to effectively banish the feelings of hunger and thirst. As such, inmates of the Block typically lose weight and muscle mass very rapidly, and are rendered docile and obedient within the first few weeks of their stay there.
