Trivia

  • The name "oubliette" is French for "forgotten place". This is a reference to Corvus being held there for a very long amount of time.
  • The name "oubliette" is appropriate to this particular dungeon, given that it is indeed accessible only by a trap door at its topmost level.[1]
  • Each floor of the Oubliette has a pit except for the level on which Corvus is located. Since it was Corvus who attacked Zenus from his underground prison, it can be expected that the pits were caused by Corvus' attack. Similar pits can also be seen in The Gittingham Castle.
  • Oubliette could be a pun on obliterate, or to wipe something out, as the area sounding area has been left utterly destroyed.
