Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you stand right next to Murphy and contact him, he'll tell you that it's "so rude when you may as well just speak to him in person". There are similar responses when using NPC contact for most NPCs.
  • When contacting Bert the player will tell him they are totally "'armless", this is a reference to the quest The Hand in the Sand.
  • If you try and contact Chuck using this spell while up in your clan's citadel and claim your penguin points it will say "Your call has been disconnected." This may happen for other NPCs who you wish to claim things from.
  • When casting the spell, the audio used sounds like tuning in an old radio, probably a humorous reference to the idea of 'tuning in' to the NPC.
  • When talking to the camel, you ask him "How am I speaking to you without a Camulet?", even if you have not done Enakhra's Lament, so you would not yet know what a camulet is.
  • After While Guthix Sleeps, attempting to contact Cyrisus used no runes and a message appeared that says "you take a moment to honour your fallen brethren, Cyrisus. Lucien will be made to pay." This no longer happens, and you cannot choose him at all. The reason for this change is unknown.
  • The prank conversation with Blurberry is a reference to a Simpsons episode where Bart prank calls Moe in a similar manner.
  • Romeo's line: "Shall I compare thee to some pineapple chunks?" is a reference to the first line in William Shakespeare's Sonnet 18: "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day.".
  • Despite being able to talk to the cow, the camel and Bob the Cat without using their respective amulets, the sheep doesn't, or refuses to, speak common tongue.
  • Zanik's battle with the undead Lumberjack is similar to the battle between the Black Knight and King Arthur in the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
  • Zanik's line "No zombie is safe from Zanik of the Dorgeshuun!" may be a reference to the popular Valve Software videogame Left 4 Dead, in which there is a line of graffiti scrawled on a wall which states "No zombie is safe from Chicago Ted".
  • The conversation with Evil Dave alludes to the film Star Wars with the line "what is thy bidding, O master?" and to Lord of the Rings with the line "Build me an army worthy of Zamorak!".
  • The conversation with Party Pete (the sentence: Relax! Don't do it) might be a reference to the song 'Relax' by Frankie Goes To Hollywood.
  • After completing The Mighty Fall, Zanik won't be contacted anymore, no matter if the player killed her or spared her.
  • After The Light Within, Islwyn replaces Eluned. He will recharge crystal seeds for players in her stead.
  • If a player who has completed Plague's End uses the spell to talk to Morvran, he will say "You have no business in my head. My secrets are not for your eyes. Get out.", and then say "Too scared to seek me out in person, hmm? Well what is it?" He then lets the player ask for an assignment.
  • The spell cannot be used within a Clan Citadel or PvP grounds.
