Adventure begins[edit | edit source]

Opening cutscene[edit | edit source]

  • Voiceover: Some heroes are born, possessing natural gifts that lift them above the ordinary. Some heroes are made. Their strength is the result of hardship and toil. Some heroes live for adventure, confronting terrible dangers in pursuit of riches and fame. While others fight to protect those who cannot defend themselves. But some heroes have more...unlikely origins. This is the story of one such hero. This is your story.

Starting out[edit | edit source]

Orientation[edit | edit source]

  • [Use the WASD or arrow keys to turn the camera.]
  • [Left-click Gudrik to talk to him.]

Gudrik calls[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: Come here, [laddie/lassie]. I need to talk to you.

While waiting to speak to Gudrik[edit | edit source]

Gudrik may say any one of the following at random: 

  • Dialogue 1:
    • Gudrik: Come here! I've got something to tell you.
  • Dialogue 2:
    • Gudrik: I need to talk to you [laddie/lassie].
  • Dialogue 3:
    • Gudrik: Over here! I need to talk to you.

Talking to Gudrik[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: I need to talk to you abut something very important, [laddie/lassie].
  • Player: What's the matter?
  • Gudrik: I had a dream – a vision! The world was on fire. All of Gielinor was consumed in flames! When I awoke, I knew I had to come and get you. You're special, [laddie/lassie]. You have talents and abilities beyond those of ordinary folk. Gielinor needs heroes, now more than ever. That's why you have to come with me to the mainland. Once we're there, I'll guide you to places where you can put your talents to use. But before we set off, we'll need to prepare you for the journey ahead. You're going to need some food and a decent sword, for a start – that rusty old blade of yours wouldn't cut a load of bread!
    • Let's go.
      • Gudrik: Right you are, [laddie/lassie].
    • Who are you?
      • Gudrik: Gudrik's the name. Bane of the baneful and defender of the defenceless. Proud member of the Society of Intrepid Adventurers, and three-time winner of the Beard of the Year award.
        • (Shows previous options)
    • Where am I?
      • Gudrik: You take a knock to the head or something? We're in Ashdale, far from the shores of the mainland. Where else would we be?
        • (Shows previous options)
    • What's the plan?
      • Gudrik: We need to prepare you for the journey to the mainland. Our destination is the harbour, but first we need to get you some food, and that means heading down to the fishing spot.
        • (Shows previous options)

First steps[edit | edit source]

Discovering the Zombie[edit | edit source]

First Zombie attacks[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: Wait – do you hear that? Saradomin's beard! Kill it!
  • [Left-click the zombie to attack.]

Talking to Gudrik before the second Zombie attacks[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: I've never known something like that to happen in Ashdale before. Most troubling.

After defeating the first Zombie[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: What in the name of Armadyl's eyebrows was that about? I've never known something like that to happen in Ashdale before.
  • [You've gained your first ability! You can use the Slice ability to deal more damage.]

Second Zombie attacks[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: Wait a minute – did you hear that?
  • [Left-click the zombie to attack.]

While fighting the second Zombie[edit | edit source]

  • [Left-click this button or press 1 to use your ability.]

Talking to Gudrik while fighting either Zombie[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: This is no time to talk!

After defeating the second Zombie[edit | edit source]

  • [You've gained a level! As you perform actions in Runescape you'll gain XP that will enhance your skills.]
  • Gudrik: Well done [laddie/lassie]! You fought bravely. The question is – where did those creatures come from? I've never seen anything like it in Ashdale before. Something is wrong – very wrong. I'm not as young as I used to be, [laddie/lassie]. If there's danger coming, the task of protecting Ashdale will have to fall to you. Anyway, let's press on. For now, we'll stick with the plan of preparing you for the journey to the mainland. But we should keep an eye out for anything unusual.

Attempting to drop any item(s)[edit | edit source]

  • It wouldn't be a good idea to drop this item!

Fishing[edit | edit source]

Ready to fish[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: Right, time to do some fishing. Here's some bait to get you started.
  • [Left-click the fishing spot to start fishing.]

Talking to Gudrik[edit | edit source]

Before catching any fish[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: What are you waiting for, [laddie/lassie]? Get fishing!

After catching one Minnow[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: You've only caught one fish - you're going to need more than that!

After catching two Minnows[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: Just one more fish, I think.

Clicking on the Fishing spot multiple times[edit | edit source]

  • You only need to click once!

After catching three Minnows[edit | edit source]

  • [You caught some fish! Most items you pick up will be stored in your backpack.]
  • Gudrik: Right, let's go and cook those fish.

Attempting to lure the Fishing spot without bait[edit | edit source]

  • You need a fishing rod and some bait to catch these fish.
  • You need a fishing rod and bait.

Talking to Hendrik[edit | edit source]

  • Hendrik: Saradomin's blessing upon you, my friend.
    • What are you doing?
      • Hendrik: Well I was about to do a spot of fishing, but then I heard what sounded like fighting. Is everything alright?
      • Player: There was a zombie attack.
      • Hendrik: Zombies? Is Ashdale? I've never heard anything like it! Was anyone harmed?
        • Everyone's fine.
          • Hendrik: You came to the rescue, eh? I might have known. You always did strike me as the courageous type. Still, I've never known something like that to happen in Ashdale. Let's hope it's not a sign of worse to come.
        • Everything's under control.
          • Hendrik: Glad to hear it. Let me know if the situation changes, won't you?
    • What can you tell me about this place?
      • Hendrik: Since it was founded, Ashdale has become something of a refuge, a place for people who want some peace and quiet. Let's hope it stats that way.
        • (Shows previous options)
    • Saradomin? Who's that?
      • Hendrik: Saradomin is one of the beings that first brought life into Gielinor. Most of us who live in Ashdale have taken Saradomin as our patron. He stands for truth, justice, and – above all – order.
        • (Shows previous options)
    • Goodbye.
      • Hendrik: Saradomin watch over you, my friend.

Food and healing[edit | edit source]

Ready to cook[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: Right, here we are. Find the fish in your backpack, then use the fire to cook it.
  • [Right-click the minnow and select use.]
  • [Left-click the fire.]
  • [Left-click the button to cook your fish.]

Talking to Gudrik[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: Right, here we are. Find the fish in your backpack, then use the fire to cook it.

Attempting to eat any Minnows before cooking all of them[edit | edit source]

  • You should finish cooking your fish before eating them.

After cooking the fish[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: The look nicely cooked to me! But don't eat them now – keep hold of them until you really need them. Food's the best thing for restoring health, so you should always have a little bit with you in case you get into a fight. Now let's get started on your new sword. That rusty old blade of yours isn't going to last much longer!

Attempting to eat fish while at full health[edit | edit source]

  • Eating food while at full health does not help you.

Talking to Digory[edit | edit source]

  • Digory: Hello there!
    • Who are you?

        • (Shows previous options)
    • You seem very happy.
      • Digory: Yes - and why not? The sun is shining, the air is sweet, and the sea is as blue as a maiden's eyes. A fine time to be alive, wouldn't you say? Haha!
      • Player: There was a zombie attack!
      • Digory: Zombies? Hah, you certainly have a vivid imagination, my friend. Everyone knows you don't get things like that in Ashdale!
        • (Shows previous options)
    • What are you doing?
      • Digory: What am I doing? Not very much! Doing things is very bad for your health, you know. That's why I make it a policy to do as little as possible.
        • (Shows previous options)
    • Goodbye.
      • Digory: Goodbye, my friend!

Talking to Ned[edit | edit source]

  • Ned: What do you want?
    • That's not very friendly.
      • Ned: You may think you're some kind of warrior, wandering around with that sword of yours, but you don't fool me.
      • Player: I saved the villagers from a zombie attack!
      • Ned: Hah, zombies? Don't be ridiculous. There's never been anything like that in Ashdale, and there never will be!
        • (Shows previous options)
    • What are you doing?
      • Ned: I'm catching fairies with an invisible net! What's it look like I'm doing? I'm sitting here by the fire trying to enjoy some peace and quiet.
        • (Shows previous options)
    • Who are you?
      • Ned: Don't play the fool with me, young [man/miss]. You know full well who I am! There's only one Ned Swarbrick on this island, and that's me. My family has been in Ashdale since the very beginning, and don't you forget it!
        • (Shows previous options)
    • Goodbye.
      • Ned: Hmph.

After defeating the Dead cow[edit | edit source]

  • [The zombie cow dropped something! Left-click the item to pick it up.]

After picking up the Dead cow's drop[edit | edit source]

  • Gudrik: Saradomin's beard! Never in all my days have I seen anything like that. Whatever is happening here, it's more serious than I thought. It looks like you're going to need a new sword [laddie/lassie] – your old one is beyond repair! Let's head to the quarry so we can get the ore you need.

Talking to Magda[edit | edit source]

  • Magda: Greetings, child. What brings you to my humble home?
    • Who are you?

        • (Shows previous options)

        • (Shows previous options)
    • Can you tell me more about Ashdale?
      • Magda: Ashdale was built over 400 years ago, which is a small span compared with some of Gielinor's more ancient settlements.

  • Player: Don't worry, I'll deal with it.

Departure[edit | edit source]

          • Gudrik: She was an evil necromancer who terrorized Gielinor during the Fourth Age. She died hundreds of years ago ... but someone must have brought her back. As for why she came here, I think it might have something to with the fact that I, sort of ... plundered her tomb, back in my adventuring days. Hey, don't look at me like that! How was I to know she'd come back from the dead?
            • (Shows previous options)
        • How did you lose your arm?
          • Gudrik: It happened year ago. I was exploring the Kharidian Desert and accidentally disturbed a kalphite hive. Vicious wee blighters, those kalphites. They swarmed me, and – well, you can see the result for yourself. It makes opening jars a challenge, I can tell you that.
