Teleport Pads are an invention of the inhabitants of the ancient city of Kotl on Eodon. Stepping on one teleports the person to a teleport hub north of the Sakkhra Tribe, from where the other teleport pads could be accessed. A similar system can be found inside the city as well for fast transportation. Even after the destruction of Kotl, they still worked.
In Savage Empire, the Avatar used these platforms to great effect to quickly travel through Eodon. However, the teleport plazas were always located next to an entrance to the Myrmidex Caves, so trouble with its inhabitants was common.
