When the children and adolescents of rich parents drink from the Silver River - either purposefully or accidentally - they are sent to the Mazechapel, a place which serves as their asylum. Creative expression is encouraged as it is thought to be the only way to stave off the inevitable aggression and bloodlust that would otherwise follow. Newer patients paint, write, or perform in the Mazechapel choir. The less sane, older patients are sent to the basement to work on the labyrinth beneath. While serving no real purpose, the manual labor of digging and laying brick is often an effective treatment, and the maze continues to grow with each year. Patients who are too far gone in the bottom chambers must occasionally be sealed away with bricks.
