My theory is that they are really imaginary objects -- or at least their existence has been greatly exaggerated. I've never seen one in real life. That I remember as a plinth.
Fiance said we used to have some at work. (After we discovered that word, we paid attention.
) The managers called them plinths, but they weren't nearly as impressive looking as the plinths we've seen in games. They were a lot smaller.
Could a plinth just be a brick in disguise?
The plinths at work could have been.
The plinths in the games . . . maybe really, really big bricks.
