The Chef, full name Carlos Napp, is an adventurer found in the player-owned port. He is a keen chef, and seeks to create a perfect dish, but appears to be slightly insane. He can be unlocked and gives special voyages to the player running the port if the player has 90 Cooking. The Chef can be unlocked through the tutorial or a special voyage.

He also features in the Celebration of Fire in Lumbridge Crater, coming back from his voyages in the Eastern Lands after hearing of a gigantic lobster at the crater.

Carlos' story[edit | edit source]

Previous storyline cutscenes can be replayed by talking to Carlos when he is in the port.

Part 1: Meet the Chef[edit | edit source]

At this voyage you first meet The Chef, Carlos, a bit of an insane person. This voyage is only available if he is not your first adventurer.

Part 2: Perfect Flavour[edit | edit source]

The Chef needs to collect some ingredients for his 'perfect dish'. This voyage requires unlocking The Skull.

Part 3: Toxins[edit | edit source]

The Chef has brought the spices and herbs with him, the crew has been eating from it while it wasn't cooked yet. Your crew is ill now. You ask the Chef to return the herbs to the island where they grow. This voyage requires unlocking The Hook.

Part 4: Boiling Over[edit | edit source]

You are informed that a village has discovered the stash of herbs that the Chef returned, and now he must warn them before any harm is done. You must have unlocked the Scythe region to send this voyage.

Part 5: To the Ship![edit | edit source]

The villagers have exchanged the herbs with another party. Carlos must find them before they consume the dangerous herbs. This voyage requires unlocking The Bowl.

Part 6: Barrels of Mystery[edit | edit source]

The men who had the herbs are all dead - save for one who keeps mumbling about "the jungle coming alive and killing everyone". The herbs themselves have also disappeared mysteriously. Carlos wants to go do some research and gain insight on what exactly has happened. This voyage requires unlocking The Pincers. Completing this voyage earns 28 spices and 18 pearls.

Resource voyages[edit | edit source]

Carlos' morale and seafaring-based resource voyages are called Can I Cook With It? They reward the player with chimes and the region's resource, or Can I Eat It? which reward the player with trade goods, most likely pearls, but do not advance the story line. The adversity and reward vary depending on the region. When Carlos offers more than one special voyage, the player must choose between them.
