The Pillar of Thras is a thousand-foot-tall pillar made of coral. It is located on the continent of Thras and is believed to be a way of entering Oblivion.[1]

Some Sloads, for many reasons (including sacrifice), plunge themselves into the ground and sometimes die. Survivors disappear before hitting the surface, possibly to Oblivion. No one, including the Sload, knows who or what built it, or if it has any magical properties. They also do not know why some Sloads die and others disappear.
