The Vaults of Madness are the masterpiece of the infamous Mad Architect, who is said to be one of the few entities ever to serve multiple Daedric Princes and profit from it. How he is paid for his "services" is a matter of wild and horrible conjecture.
Vaults of Madness

The Vaults of Madness is a group dungeon found in Coldharbour.

Gasteau Chamrond needs you to help him and his friends escape from the Vaults by destroying the Mad Architect. You can learn about its location from Tubidan the Alarmist in the Hollow City.
