The Silence Of The Gods
These dark omens were built in a long ago age on Manifest Zones of Mabar as a channel with which to funnel dark energies. When active, they are a spectacle of green lights, with lightning crackling, geysers of green light firing off the top, and orbs of green lazily drifting around the tower like fireflies. Preceding even the Giants, they were however used by the Giants, and some of their ancient ruins can be found to be built as both a site to harvest the energies from the obelisk as well as contain them from the outside world. The dark energies from Mabar can include malevolent spirits, such as The Thrall, but it is unknown as to what level of activation of the obelisk is required before these spirits can cross the planes. Red possesses an artifact recovered from Pagaern d’Argonia, the foremost expert on Giants civilization, which was discovered to have the ability to deactivate these obelisks and drain them of power.
- Red used the artifact to deactivate the obelisk in the Obsidian City, which a drow priestess was using for some ritual involving the sacrifice of a unicorn.
Chapter 1-7 Thickening the Plot (or how our heroes befriended a unicorn)
- Red deactivated the obelisk in the final Giant’s ruin, banishing The Thrall, rescuing Horvath from demonic possession, and ending the green mist that turned mortals into twisted undead.
