Midway through the room, three curved steps led down to an area with three stone coffins surrounding a cast-iron throne which stood in front of a fourth coffin. The coffins were covered with more elaborate elven carvings. The throne was covered with soot, as was the coffin behind it. That fourth coffin was open, its lid lay in pieces on the floor.
