If you're not sure what I mean, it's visible from the little village that's south over the river from the main area of Alvar. I went up there, killed a few wasps, and went over to investigate. When I clicked on it I got a nonsensical message - can't remember it exactly but it was two words and at least one wasn't an actual word. I got the effect on my portrait as if it was a buff or a quest update, but nothing seems to have changed.

Do you mean the type of obelisk that you see in each town?

It's a "secret" quest. You need to find them all, to get a clue on getting the reward.

Also, you should be able to find the message that it gave you in your autonotes, along with those from all other obelisks you've found.

Yeah, I actually added a screenshot of it but it seems to have magically removed itself.

Ah, a secret quest - that makes more sense than it just being a weird error, which is what I first thought it was. I've found a few more since then and have been marking them on the map. Thanks for the help.
