Before Desert Treasure[edit | edit source]

If the player can't start Desert Treasure[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello there.
  • He seems to be lost in his own thoughts...

If the player can start Desert Treasure[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello there.
    • Archaeologist: Howdy stranger. What brings you out to these parts?
  • What are you doing here?
    • Player: Nothing much - What are you doing here? It doesn't seem like there's much to do out here in the desert!
      • Archaeologist: Well, that's where you'd be wrong. I work for the Archaeological Society of Varrock, and have been excavating around here recently.
      • Archaeologist: Was there something you specifically wanted?
        • Returns to inital options
  • Who are you?
    • Player: Who are you, anyway?
      • Archaeologist: You don't recognize me??? I am the world famous Asgarnia Smith, Archaeologist extraordinaire!
      • Archaeologist: I am the one who discovered the long forgotten Temple of Ikov! The one who unearthed the strange trap filled arena in Brimhaven!
      • Archaeologist: I'm the leading archaeological expert of our time! I was voted archaeologist of the year four years running by the Varrock Herald! Are you REALLY sure you've never heard of me?
        • Player: No, I really haven't.
          • Archaeologist: Well then, I'm confused. Why did you come over and speak to me if you don't know who I am? What do you want?
            • Returns to inital options
  • Do you have any quests?
    • Player: Do you have any quests? Call it a hunch, but you look like the type of man who might...
      • Archaeologist: Well, its funny you should say that. I'm not sure if I would really call it a quest as such, but I found this ancient stone tablet in one of my excavations, and it would really help me out if you could go and take it
      • Archaeologist: back to the digsite for me to get it examined.
      • Archaeologist: It's very old, and I don't recognize any of the inscriptions on it.
        • Option to start Desert Treasure
          • If "Not Yet" is chosen
            • Player: No thanks. Playing delivery boy doesn't really sound like much fun to me.
              • Archaeologist: Well, okay. Can't say as I blame you for thinking that. I'll go take it there myself later I guess.
  • Nothing really.
    • Player: Nothing really. I'm just wandering around for no good reason.
      • Archaeologist: Uh-huh. Well, if you'll excuse me, I have a lot more work to do before I can bed down for the night.

After Desert Treasure[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello there.
    • Archaeologist: Hello again. You find any signs of that treasure yet?
      • Player: Well... not as such, but I unleashed a powerful demon from its tomb in return for unbelievable magical power.
        • Archaeologist: So... no gold then?
          • Player: Not as such, no. Sorry about that.
            • Archaeologist: Aw... I was hoping to go abroad on holiday this year. Maybe I'll go check out Karamja next, I hear there's treasure to be found there...
    • Tell me of your adventures
      • Player: I was wondering... As you are a big famous archaeologist, maybe you could spare the time to tell me a couple of tales of your exploits?
      • Archaeologist: Hey, sure thing kid! Well, this one time I found this spooky old temple in the middle of the jungle. The entrance was hidden from sight by all these vines and stuff, and it was full of zombies and crazy tribesmen and stuff. That wasn't the worst thing though! There were all these crazy traps that were hidden around the place too! Well, anyway, I found the secret entrance, fought my way in through the zombies and tribesmen, and came to a big pedestal with a statue of solid gold sat on top of it!
        • Player: Solid gold, huh? Wow.
          • Archaeologist: That's right! It was a cunning trap though! As soon as I picked up the statue, a trapdoor opened up underneath me, and I fell into a darkened room, full of bones, and the biggest meanest tribesman you ever did see! Huge he was, and real ugly looking! He had this huge sword too, and he came running towards me screaming something in some language I didn't understand!
            • Player: What did you do?
              • Archaeologist: Well, while he was screaming at me, and swinging his sword around in front of me, trying to intimidate me before attacking, I cooly and calmly...
                • Player: Yes?
                  • Archaeologist: All the while, knowing that if I died in this spot nobody would even know where I was...
                    • Player: What then?
                      • Archaeologist: I knew, if this tribesmen killed me, that would be the end of Asgarnia Smith, and all of his treasure hunting...
                        • Player: SO WHAT DID YOU DO?!?!
                          • Archaeologist: Well, while he was screaming and waving his sword around, I stood behind a nearby stalactite, then shot him with my shortbow. And that was how I recovered the Golden Monkey of Tee-Ta-Toh.
                            • Returns to inital options
    • Tell me how you became an Archaeologist
      • Player: So... How exactly did you get into this line of work anyway? It seems an odd choice of career for a man like yourself.
        • Archaeologist: Thinking of joining your pal Asgarnia in the wonderful world of treasure hun- um, archaeology, huh? Well, it all started the day I was fishing in Catherby, funnily enough. Ah yes, I remember it well... I was just sat there, hoping to catch a bass or two, when I made the most amazing discovery! In my fishing nets, I had found an ancient casket, marred and worn by centuries underwater! With trembling hands, I slowly and cautiously opened it, wondering what ancient secret may have been kept inside... What valuable heirloom may have been dredged up by my nets that had not decayed underwater long ago... And you know what I found inside?
          • Player: No, what?
            • Archaeologist: I found 320 coins! Just like that! Just by fishing I had found 320 coins! 320 coins! Can you believe it?
              • Player: Um... Yes, yes I can.
                • Archaeologist: Well, it might not seem much to us now kid, but back then, it was a revelation! Why waste my time fishing when there were secret treasures from long ago hidden around the world? I immediately applied to the Museum of Varrock as a field agent, and the rest is history!
                  • Returns to inital options
    • Nice hat!
      • Player: Nice hat!
        • Archaeologist: Hey, thanks kid. Looking snazzy is an important part of being a treasure hunter!
          • Returns to inital options
    • See you later...
      • Player: Well, I'll see you again sometime maybe. Sorry I couldn't get you any treasure...
        • Archaeologist: Ah, don't sweat it kid. I'll be honest with ya - I'm already rich many times over, and its more the kicks of being a treasure hunter I do it for than the actual cash!

Archaeology research[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello there.
  • Asgarnia Smith: Hello again. You need me, Guildmaster!
  • Player: I do? For what?
  • Asgarnia Smith: For your research team! I'm a professor with a LOT of field experience.
  • Player: I guess it wouldn't hur-
  • Asgarnia Smith: Great! I'll need something first, though... A restored ourg megahitter from the Warforge!
  • If you have a restored ourg megahitter
    • Player: Well, as it so happens...
    • Asgarnia Smith: I'll take it! That is, um, if you will give it...boss.
    • Give ourg megahitter to Asgarnia Smith?
      • Yes.
        • Asgarnia Smith has joined your research team!
        • Asgarnia Smith: Apologies, Guildmaster. I didn't mean to be disrespectful, I've just been in the field a long time; forgot how to talk to people a bit.
        • Player: Not to worry, Asgarnia, you'll be a good addition to the team.
        • (Dialogue ends)
      • No.
        • Player: Oh, wait, sorry, I might need this for something else. Let me get back to you.
        • Asgarnia Smith: While I wait, let's chat.
