I keep running past these things for what feels like forever, but I actually have no idea what they are or where they come from.
My best guess is, that they have something to do with the Felucca/Trammel split. I think to have read somewhere that some kind of monuments were involved in that. I can't say for sure, as I joined UO only during Renaissance (can I still call myself a vet, please?:eusa_pray:)

In Felucca, I believe, that is the place where the sigils are for Factions. I've not seen them in Tram

I could be mistaken, but I vaguely recall they had something to do with one of the invasion events in the past. I can't recall what their purpose was now or which event it was.

Yes, they are Fel only, but they are neither the Sigil Pedestals nor the Town Stones - I'm quite familiar with those :)

But good to see, that I'm not the only one who's is unsure what these things are. Hopefully someone who remembers can enlighten us.

I think this thing in the courtyard of castle british might have something to do with them. The style is pretty similar.

So, I'm still hoping for some vet who remembers when they appeared :)

afair they appeared when the shadow lords story arc played out, they were used to summon the shadowlords to each shard/plane gnerating the final battle in shadow moonglow , where you got those threads of fate to trade in.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment

hmm.... that could be, but that story arc was only a few years back (2009?). All I can remember is that stealing and placing the sigils in Fel triggered or ended invasions in Trammel. I think these monuments have been around longer. But again, I'm not sure :(

Uhm. No.

They predate the creation of Trammel. In fact, they helped Nystul to create Trammel.
