In the quest Nomad's Requiem, it is confirmed that Nomad created the soul obelisk and all soul shards used on it are transferred to his 'throne' which siphons their power into him, causing him to gain tremendous power.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Below is the quote mentioning the Soul Obelisk:
|“||On the deepest, darkest, most mysterious of our backwater islands, an eternal struggle rages, unknown to the residents of RuneScape until now. Structured much like Castle Wars, this will be a "quick to access, tough to master" conflict-based minigame. The avatars of Destruction and Creation vie for control of the Soul Obelisk, an ancient and powerful artefact used to harvest the souls of the weak and unready. Get ready to grab your blade, staff or bow and battle through Slayer creatures, collecting fragments of their souls to feed to the ever-hungry obelisk. Rewards include combat XP while playing the game, Pest Control-style XP rewards and a few new pets for you to lead.||”|
- While near the Soul Obelisk, turning the volume up loud will sound as if the Obelisk pulses with the word "Yay".
- The Soul Obelisk somewhat resembles the rotating obelisks (Yu Pagoda's) that Yu Yevon uses as a magic source in Final Fantasy X.
- If during the tutorial, the player can go back to the Soul Obelisk after Nomad has killed the player, Zimberfizz reveals that Nomad created the Soul Obelisk.
