Cave obelisk

Obelisk in the seer's cave in the west

An obelisk is a tall, four-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape at the top. Like Egyptian pyramids, whose shape is thought to be representative of the descending rays of the sun, an obelisk is said to resemble a petrified ray of the sun-disk. A pair of obelisks usually stood in front of a pylon. Ancient obelisks were often monolithic, whereas most modern obelisks are made of several stones and can have interior spaces.

Several obelisks can be spotted throughout Lock's Quest. It is unknown where they came from, who created them, or what purpose they serve.

The obelisk in the museum in Archineer Hall says "These obelisks have been sighted throughout the world since antiquity. This one was recovered after the victory at Dark Ridge during the last Great War."
