For me, that was near the beginning of my deciphering phase, after I'd figured out the code. When I was transcribing that particular plinth, I started on the "Please send help" side. As I wrote out the words, I got more and more unsettled: "Please send help - I'm trapped..."
Then I got the next words: "Please send help - I'm trapped IN A FEZ..."
I was completely freaking out - Is wearing the fez a prelude to Gomez's doom? Was it the fez talking to me through this pillar? Is this actually a multi-player game now and someone's leaving messages in their blood stains like Demon's Souls? IS THIS GAME HAUNTED?
"Please send help - I'm trapped in a fez factory."
