Sir I believe that's an obelisk. I don't know why you'd ask here on the forum when it's in the file name. Geez.

I think he was poking fun at Aledog's post title in the form of a question as you can see the creatures name in the file name.

It is indeed an obelisk - an aetherial obelisk to be precise. It is an abomination formed out of earth and the flesh of unlucky creatures absorbed into it. At it's core is a giant crystal imbued with vast aetherial energy. The purpose of the obelisk is to transform portions of the world to be more suitable for aetherial habitation.

normally I'd smite any abomination but if it makes the world look cooler then I may just let it live. Then again this aetherial energy...I wish to harness its power!

If those hooked tentacle thingies don't shoot out, hook the player and yank them into melee range I'm gonna be disappointed.

On second thought....God, I hope they don't do that. lol

Ah sounds like my favorite Dungeons and Dragons monster! The Living Wall.
