A cutcene plays: you see 4 male barbarian's mine. One barbarian miner named Billgor eventually hit's a rock, and a hole appears in the ground and the miner falls in it. The other 3 barbarian's panick. Barbarian miner: we gotta get some help! The Miner's come back with small group of other barbarians. You see some barbarians staring at the hole, one small grey bearded barbarian says: Thordur: Look at that hole, it's pretty deep... and dark! Durnu: Not to forgot scary! Trongord: Haha, get out of the way, coward! Me handle this! Brundo walks to the hole, pushes Durnu aside and shouts: Trongor: JOE, BILL! ARE YOU THERE?!' No response. Durnu: I'm gonna get some rope! Screen turn's black. Litara (present): My mother brought me to bed then as it was my bedtime. I didn't want too, but... The next morning I went out of my bed early, only to find out that: Billgor is standing next to the entrance of the stronghold, holding a beer. Various barbarians surround him. Billgor: ...and I found a gem at the depth's, so big, it's bigger than my hand here! No! It was even bigger than my pickaxe! Barbarian woman: Wow! Peska: Haha! Billgor: What are you laughing about? Peska: Ha I don't believe you, remember you saw "Hati"? Billgor: I was only a kid that time! And the white racoon was very big! Peska: And you remember when you saw "The Kendal"? Billgor: I couldn't help it, I was realy drunk and Gunnar kept telling the story about The Kendal. Peska: Oh come on, that animal wasn't even a bear! It was a fish! Billgor: SO?! Peska: You just make a huge mammoth from a tiny squirl! I bet that little gem is just as small as your brain! Barbarian Miner: Oh really? The barbarian Miner shows a large gem. Peska: ... Barbarian woman: Wow! That gem is soooo big! Peska: Grumph, it's still smaller then your pickaxe. The Miner drinks his beer. Billgor: Hey, barmaid, gimmy a Black Skull Ale! Glorick: (Litara's brother): I want to explore that cave too! Trongord: Me want too! Billgor: Harhar! *hic* Don't think *hic* it is that easy to find a *hic* gem. Bruno: So, maybe it's better to go together?' Billgor: *hic* Would be good *hic* kid *hic* Kjell: Do you want another beer? Billgor: *hic* No bad idea *hic*. Bwarmaid, one Supergrog! Bruno: Let's go as a big team then. Kjell: Seem's fine with me. Bruno: Kjell, you are a bit to young... Kjell: I'm only 2 winters younger than you! Chieftain Grondor: What's going on here? Kjell: A hole appeared in the middle of the town. Chieftain Grondor: Why do I know nothing about this? Gunthor: Because you was hunting last eve and you was pretty drunk in the longhall so we decided to tell you when you would woke up. I still thought you were sleeping. Chieftain Grondor: Ha! I only had a few barrels of beer! What's that gem? Haakon: That's is the treasure of beneath, Billgor found it. Chieftain Grondor: Does his son knows about this? Bruno: Yes Sigurd does, however he's still busy with his Canoe. Billgor: *hic* why do I *hic* see two of *hic* you? Litara: Big bro, what are you doing? Glorick: I want to find a treasure in that hole. Kjell: We are going as a team! Bruno: No your to young. Kjell: No I'm no- Chieftain Grondor: Enough! I will end this madness in name of my father, Gunnar, I say that no barbarian will enter this hole! Glorick: But Chief! Haakon: The Chieftain has spoken! Litara's mother: Litara, come, you need to wash some clothes! Litara (present): After I washed the clothes, nothing really interesting happened for 4 day's. That night, I went to bed early. I then woke up be a strange sound... Litara: Glorick? Bruno? What are you doing? Glorick: Shhhh... Litara, we are going to find a treasure in this cave. Don't tell anybody. I will see you soon! Glorick gives Litara a kiss on her forehead. Glorick: See you soon! Litara: Bye! The cutscene ends. Litara: I never could think it would be the last time I would see him... I investigated the cave itself, but I couldn't find any clue about where he was. I thought he was dead, but... Player: But what? Litara: I have had visions lately, I see him. He's being captured by darkness... But he is alive. Can you please help him?
- Yes (progress the quest)
Litara: Thank you! Player: Do you have a good place to start? Litara: I think you should investigate the stronghold down here. Here take this. Litara gives you a Doll Player: What's that for doll? Litara: It was mine, you never know... Maybe it helps you? Player: Ehm thanks... I will go and investigate the stronghold then. Litara: May the gods be with you!
Enter the Stronghold of Security with a Ghostspeak amulet equiped. A small wisp will appear above the skeleton of a dead explorer. Harvest the wisp. While Harvesting the wisp will talk to you.
Spirit: L-Litara? Is that you? Player: No I'm playername... Spirit: Why did you ave her doll? Player: She gave it to me. Who are you? Spirit: I was once a living soul by the name Bruno... Now... I'm just a spirit... Spirit: I was with Glorick when we were looking for a treasure. Spirit: Should have listened to Chieftain Grondor... Spirit: We found something... at the depth's... Player: What did you find? Spirit: Can't remember... Shadows feed on me... Player: What do you mean? Spirit: They feed on me... on my thought's... memories... eat my lifeforce... Spirit: You must help me... No... not me... I'm already nearing the death... Spirit: Ready to get harvested... You must... elp Glo... rick... Spirit: The... caught him... turn's... one of em... Spirit: Find... the... gems... Player: What gems? Spirit: The... gems... Billgor's... Spirit: My spi... fading... Spirit: Tell... Litara... loved her... Spirit: farewell... Player: Farewell. The wisp will disapear. Player: I should report to Litara.
If you do not have the ghostspeak amulet equiped all the spirit say's is whoooo whoooo, however he will not fade away. Leave the stronghold and speak with Litara.
Litara: And did you find something? Player: I actually found Bruno... Just at the entrance of the Stronghold. Litara: You saying Bruno was at the entrance all the time? Player: His dead body was... I managed to communicate with his soul. Litara: I never saw his dead body there! Player: That's strange! Litara: But you said you could communicate with his soul? Can I do that too? Player: No. As his soul just passed to the next world. Litara: May Bruno find peace in Valhalla. What did he told you? Player: He asked me if I was you at first, becouse of the doll you gave me. He then told me that "He was once a living soul". And he told that "He should have listened to Grondor". He found something at the depths, but he couldn't remember what as shadows did feed on him. Litara: Shadows did feed on him? Player: They did feed on his memories and his lifeforce. Litara: Sounds terrible! Player: He asked me to help him, but then he told that he shouldn't help me instead I must help Glorick as he was nearing the death already. Litara: ... Player: He told me that Glorick was caught, he then started fading. He told me that it tried to turn it into one of them. Litara: One of who? Player: Don't know. He asked me to find the gems that Billgor found. Litara: Did he said Gem or Gems? Player: Gems. Litara: I don't understand Billgor only found one gem... Maybe Hunding knows. Player: His spirit then became even less visible. Litara: ... Player: His last words were that I should tell you that he loved you. Litara: Sob. Player, please go to Hunding and speak with him about the gems. He's usually in the watchtower east of Gunnarsgrunn. I'm going to collect my thought's. Player: Like divination? Litara: No, I just need to think.
Go to Hunding, he's in the watchtower east of Gunnarsgrunn Hunding: What business do you have in our village, outlander? Choose the option:
Litara did send me.
Hunding: Litara? What did she wanted? Player: She asked if there are any more gems like Billgor's gems. Hunding: Yes. There where 6 found in the cavern. 7 if you count Billgor's gem too. Player: Where are they now? Hunding: Like I'm goin to tell that to an outlander like you! Player: What can I do to change your mind? Hunding: My bow is broken. You take my bow to Lowe in Varrock and I tell you about those gems. Player: I thought you made your own bows? Hunding: Not mine, mine is made of a special kind of wood. So I can aim better. Player: Ok, can you give me your bow? Hunding gives you his bow. Hunding: Good luck.
Go to Lowe in Varrock.
Lowe: Welcome to Lowe's Archery Emporium. Do you want to see my wares? Choose the option:
Hunding asked my if you could fix his bow
Lowe: Of course! Let me see. Ah I see, haha, he did it again! Lowe walks to his workbench. Lowe: Let me see... Lowe: Eh... Lowe: I'm afraid I can't repair this one, as you see, the wooden part of the bow is slightly broken, I need to replace it. However, I'm out of the wood for it. Can you do me one small favour and bring me some wood? Normally I would go there myself but I'm over my weekly limit. If you have completed one small favour, your player will say: Player: (panic) It's not red mahogany wood is it?! Lowe: Red mahogany wood? No. Why? Player: Oh eh nothing... Lowe: Go to the general store just next to my store and ask for Wood #1.4. Player: Yes sir!
Talk with the shopkeeper. Shopkeeper: Can I help you at all?
Yes, do you have any Wood #1.4?
Shopkeeper: Yes, I guess for a special kind of bow? You do not that skilled with bow's however. Player: What do you mean? Shopkeeper: Well, no offense but, you look more like a firemaker than a fletcher to me. We don't sell wood #1.4 to firemakers. Player: So, what can I do to prove that I'm a skilled "Fletcher"? Shopkeeper: Go to Wilfred, the woodcutting master that can be found in the forest north of Falador. And ask for 3 loads of "Special wood", then show me how good fletcher you are. Player: This is starting to get looking more and more like the cursed red mahogany... Shopkeeper: What do you mean? Never mind. Just fetch me the especial wood, so I can see if you are a skilled fletcher. I have the other tools you 'll need here in my store. Good luck!
Talk to Wilfred north of Falador.
Choose the option: The Shopkeepers of Varrock are asking me to get some Special wood. Wilfred: The Shopkeepers of Varrock? They are already on their suply limit this month of special wood. However, I can give you some of this special wood if you show your woodcutting skills and chop 5 yew logs for me... Player: Sure! Wilfred: But you must chop them on particular locations. The first log must come from the tree's south of Falador, the second log from one of the 3 tree's west of Rimmington the third from the ruins of edgevile, the fourth must be chopped north of Varrock's castle and the last one must be chopped at the Lumbridge graveyard, in that order. Player: Why do it have to be different locations? Wilfred: Becouse it's a... ehm... part of my research. Yes, that's right it's part of my research! Player: Yeah... Whatever.
Chop the tree's like Wilfred asked in the right order and talk to Wilfred again.
Wilfred: Thank you, haha, Larry was right! Oh, here is your special wood. Player: Thanks!
Go back to the Shopkeeper. Choose the option: I have the special wood! Shopkeeper: Good, here take this. The Shopkeeper hands you some crafting tools. Shopkeeper: Now prove me your fletching skills by making a <random> of it. Click on the craft option of the log, do not click on the knife with the fletch icon underneath it. You will get a menu with a: Shortbow Longbow Crossbow Arrowshafts Click on the item you have made and choose the option: "Finish", the item is finished now. If you did choose to make the wrong item: Shopkeeper: I did asked you to make a <Random>! But you gave me a <Random>! Please, you must pay me 1000 coins and make another <Random> for me! If you had the right item: Shopkeeper: Good, let me see. Ah I love the details. It's a fine piece of craftmanship! Here is the wood #1.4! Player: Wait, that's the same wood as Wilfred gave me. Shopkeeper: You have a sharp eye! Are you a ranger? I would suggest you to go to Lowe's Archery Emporium and buy the best ranged equipment there are! Or do you want to buy something from us?
Player: I'm going to Lowe's Archery Emporium! Shopkeeper: Heh, Lowe owe's me a beer.
Go to Lowe. Choose: I have the wood you asked for! Lowe: Good job! You hand Lowe the wood. Lowe: I'm going to fix the bow. Player: You might have to buy a beer for the Shopkeeper. Lowe: Alright it's finished! Please give me 100 coins. Player: Are you kiding me? I had to do all the work! Lowe: Ehm... Just take the bow for free! Lowe gives you the bow. Lowe: Do you want to buy some other good quality bows or arrows?
Go back to Hunding. Choose the option: Lowe fixed your bow. Hunding: Thank you, Lowe did a great work on this bow! Player: Yes, can you tell me about the Billgor gems now? Hunding: The gem Billgor found wasn't the only one, various explorers found some of those gems. I think it were 7 in total. Come and think of it, all gems were slightly similair. I don't know who took the second gem, maybe someone else knows. I know that the third gem was taken by a terrified guard of Varrock. I remember him to be very happy and he said that he would become a sailor. Player: Hmmm, maybe I can find out who he is. Hunding: The fourth gem was taken shortly after by a bit older man. Told me he came here for clay to craft a bit. He went inside the cave after some barbarian had a joke with him. You know, they took their apron and threw it in da pit. He came back with both his apron and one gem. Told us he would start a guild. Player: Hmmm, I can make something from that. Hunding: Know nuffing about the fifth or sixth gem, ask someone else. The seventh gem has been taken by a very strange guy. You know, he was a bald man. I spoke with him before, but he didn't talk back. I first thought he's was more of the silent type. After he found the gem he continued mining without saying anything about it. Eventually a strange claw appeared and he turned out to be a machine before taking him away. Heard about those strange machine's before, they were send to a unknown place to be destroyed. Player: I can work that out. Do you know who might know about the second, fifth and sixth gem? Hunding: Maybe the pot-crafter-girl knows about the sixth gem. I dunno baut the rest, as I have a watchtower job. Ask someone who was close to the hole all da time.
Go back to Litara, Kjell is standing next to her. Kjell: ...When you gonna realise... Player: Hey Litara! Ehm... Kjell what are you doing here? Kjell: Blast! Litara: Oh, we are doing ehm, nothing! Kjell: Absolutely nothing! Player: I might have a clue about your brother! Litara: Thats great? What do you know? Player: Hunding told me more people found gem's like Billgors! Kjell: Are you talking about those dwarves? Player: No... wait what? Kjell: Ow, well I saw some dwarves coming out of the hole with a gem. Player: Thank's Kjell! Now I need to know only 2! Kjell: Your welcome... I think... Player: Do you know any more gem takers? Litara: Yes, now I think of it, I've seen a varrock guard coming out of the cave holding a gem in his hand. He said he would sell the gem to buy a boat. Player: I already know that one. Litara: Ow, do you know about the talkatieve man? Player: Please continue. Litara: He was wearing strange clothes and called him a explorer. I believe he was named Jack. Though, that was only a half year after Glorick dissapeared. I remember him to be swallowed by a vegetable summoned from his ring... I can't remember more. Player: That's a usefull clue! Litara: Kjell do you know more people? Kjell: Nope, maybe my sister did. She was very terrified of the hole. Continuously watching it. Player: Where is your sister now? Kjell: Don't you know? You were the one who showed her that dwarf... She's living in Varrock or somethin... Man, she could get something so much better. Player: Alright, I think I will go to her. Litara: Good luck!
Go to Gudrun who live in Juliets former house.
Gudrun: Hello! Now choose the option: What do you know about Billgor's gems? Gudrun: Do you mean the gems coming from the deep black hole. Player: Yes, I want to know who took them. Gudrun: I think there were seven. I know Sigurd has one at this moment as a gift from his dad. Some dwarves had it too. I believe one of them was wearing a nice cape. Oh and a strange guy wearing bronze armour with iron part's found one. He had a strange name, Quite dull or something and he said something like "Goin, to sell this cut gem at Falador park!" It was a while ago. after I moved here, Kjell told me a seventh was taken by a strange bald guy. Did this help? Player: Yes, it did helped a lot! Bye! Gudrun: Bye!
Return to Litara.
Kjell: ...there's a place for us... Player: Hey Litara and Kjell! Kjell: Blast! Litara: Hey player! Player: I found out who did took the stones! Litara: So who has gem number 1? Player: That one is easy, Sigurd has it, it was a gift from his dad. Litara: Sounds logical! Who are the other ones? Player: Well I'm pretty sure Explorer Jack has one, he's a explorer from Lumbridge. Player: And ehm... A ex-guard, now sailor, I don't know his name yet has the third one. Player: The fourth gem is found by the ehm. Litara: Player, maybe it's a good idea to go after the first three gem's first.
Go to Sigurd choose the option: Can I have the gem your father gave you? Sigurd: ... I don't know, I'm very attached to it. If you do three tasks for me. Player: What tasks? Sigurd: Ehm, lemmy think. Task #1 will be cut a perfect Waka canoe at this station. Task #2 will be... ehm, lemmy think... Bring me a perfectly cooked swordfish, caught and cooked yourself. And you must cook it on a range. And Task #3 will be... Give me a Coal ore. Player: And why do you want a perfect Waka canoe a swordfish and a coal ore? Sigurd: I want a pefect waka as I want to know if you are a skilled canoe-man like me. I want a cooked swordfish becouse I'm hungry and I want to taste a swordfish. I want a Coal ore mined from the centre of gunnarsgrun as a reminder of my father. Player: Well I guess I've no other choice then.
Chop a waka canoe and show it to Sigurd. Sigurd: Yep. Seems fine.
Bring a cooked swordfish, caught on Karamja and cooked on a range. Sigurd: Mjum, tastes nice!
Bring a coal ore mined from the centre of Gunnarsgrun. Sigurd: Thank you! Here is your gem. Sigurd gives you a gem. Player: Thanks!
Now go to Explorer Jack and choose the option: Can I have the gem you found in the Stronghold of Security? Explorer Jack: You mean my first treasure I've ever found? I'm afraid I lost it. Player: What do you mean lost it? Explorer Jack: Well, if you haven't forgotten: My house was destroyed by the clash between Saradomin and Zamorak. After that my
Litara: Then it's hopeless, please come back when you change your mind.
Billgor gave his gem to his son, Sigurd before he went to Vallhalla.
The second gem was taken by a explorer. He was somewhat talkative and eventually he was swallowed by a cabbage that was summoned by his own ring.
Then eventually a third explorer came back with a gem, a terrified guard of Varrock. Remember him very happy, he then quited his job. Heard he sold the gem and then bought a boat.
The fourth gem was taken a strange guy, he had some bronze and iron armoury. He had strange white ears and looked pretty weak in his bronze and iron combination-armour. He also had a strange name, Quite dull or something. Dunno where he went though he said something like
The fifth gem, was taken by 3 dwarves. Didn't really spoke to them. Dwarves do not like Barbarians. Dunno why. One of them had a grey and blue cape with a pickaxe symbol on it.
The sixth gem-taker was a grandpa. Had a cape that looked a bit like the dwarf's cape. Except this cape was brown with yellow.
Gem 1 Sigurd
Gem 2 Explorer jack's gem is lost after his house was destroyed. Talk with foreman George to ask if they found a gem. Maybe one of his workers did?
not Builder bob as he came after Jack's building was completed.
Eventually in hands of poor gem seller.
Gem 4 The noob sold his gem to a rich gem seller.
Gem 7 Botany bay.
Some trivial facts: Thordur is based on Thordur, The Dwarf that used to guard the black hole. Brundo says "JOE BILL! This is a reference to Joe Bill64, the first player to get level 99 mining. Glorick's name is based on the name for axe11154's ankou minnion.
