This transcript involves dialogue with Copernicus Glyph and the player.

Initial dialogue[edit | edit source]

The first time, he opens with this line:

  • Copernicus Glyph: No, no, no... I'll never finish with this!

Subsequent times, before asking what should be done, he opens with this line:

  • Copernicus Glyph: If I could just get a little help here...

Continues with:

  • What would you like to say?
    • Who are you?
      • If the player has not completed Garden of Tranquility:
      • Copernicus Glyph: When I'm on business, I'm Copernicus Glyph: Master Sculptor. My friends just call me Ernie, though. You'll have seen my work without realising it in many towns and cities. There's a lovely statue of Saradomin in Falador. I did most of the statues around Lumbridge castle, too. You must drop past and see them sometime. Sculptures can be quite inspiring.
      • If the player has completed Garden of Tranquility:
      • Copernicus Glyph:When I'm on business, I'm Copernicus Glyph: Master Sculptor. My friends just call me Ernie, though. You'll have seen my work without realising it in many towns and cities. I had some lovely statues in Lumbridge and Falador - a little too nice, perhaps, because someone stole them!
      • What would you like to say?
        • Ha! I stole some statues!
          • Copernicus Glyph: And you just come out with it and tell me like that! You've no respect, and clearly no remorse. Good day to you!
        • Sorry, I stole some statues for the Varrock Castle garden.
          • Copernicus Glyph: Ah, I've heard that people can be quite manipulative of adventurers. They offered you a reward of some sort, no doubt. Well, hearing you say you're sorry is good - shows remorse. And now I know where to recover my work. Thank you.
        • Ah, I heard about the theft.
          • Copernicus Glyph: Yes, my work tends to be quite prominently placed. I'm not surprised word has got around. I've no idea what kind of selfish soul would steal masterpieces intended for public display, but I hope it was a nightmare for them. They'd need some kind of trolley for it, while also avoiding the guards.
        • How terrible, who would do such a thing?
          • Copernicus Glyph: I've no idea what kind of selfish soul would steal masterpieces intended for public display, but I hope it was a nightmare for them. They'd need some kind of trolley for it, while also avoiding the guards.
    • What are you trying to do?
      • Copernicus Glyph: It's the same every month - the statue of worship has been ruined! Chipped away by people hoping for a holy relic, or fanatics taking exception to the god honoured by the statue. Annoying, you might think, but it keeps me in work, eh? I'm trying to rebuild the statue, but I could do with a hand. I don't suppose you can help me out, can you?
      • What would you like to say?
        • Yes, what do I need to do?
          • (See below - starts with "It's simple")
        • No, I don't have time now.
          • Copernicus Glyph: Okay, perhaps later then.
    • Never mind.
      • (Ends dialogue)

Standard dialogue[edit | edit source]

Before building a statue[edit | edit source]

If you have never built a statue, he opens with this line:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Well, are you going to help me out or not?

If you have previously built a statue, he opens with this line:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Great to see you again! You have a habit of showing up at just the right time. I could do with a hand again.

Continues with:

  • What would you like to say?
    • Let me help you.
      • Copernicus Glyph: Great! Do you remember how to do this?
      • What would you like to say?
        • Yes, I remember how to do this.
          • Copernicus Glyph: Okay, I can never remember which champion is for which god. Which one is right for this area?
            • Which champion? You can change your mind if wrong.
              • Juna (Guthix)
                • If the champion isn't related to the god aligned to the area:
                  • You get the feeling that a statue of <champion> would not suit the area and might upset the locals. Fanatics may attack you if you try to pray at the statue. Are you sure you wish to build this statue?
                  • Build a statue of <champion>?
                    • Yes (can gain Slayer XP).
                      • (Transcript missing. edit)
                    • No, choose again.
                      • (Back to champion selection options)
                • If the champion is related to the god aligned to the area:
                  • You get the feeling that a statue of <champion> would suit the area perfectly and won't upset any locals. Are you sure you wish to build this statue?
                  • Build a statue of <champion>?
                    • Yes (can gain Prayer XP).
                      • Copernicus Glyph: Great! Let's get to work.
                    • No, choose again.
                      • (Back to champion selection options)
              • Zilyana (Saradomin)
                • (Same dialogue for every champion - see above)
              • K'ril Tsutsaroth (Zamorak)
                • (Same dialogue for every champion - see above)
              • Graardor (Bandos)
                • (Same dialogue for every champion - see above)
        • No, can you remind me?
          • Copernicus Glyph: It's simple: I'll stand back from the scaffold so that I can see it all clearly. You'll be at the front adjusting the height of the five scaffolding columns around the statue. I'll tell you how many pieces of scaffolding we have available to use, and the highest and lowest any scaffolding column should be. Once you've put some scaffolding in place, ask me how it looks and I'll be able to give you some advice to help you get it perfect. Do remember to ask me, though; I can see what's needed from a distance, and you'll be too close to the statue to see the big picture. And if you've had a lot of practice with Construction then the statue will look more spectacular. Gemstones and gold leaf, that's the mark of a high quality statue!
          • What would you like to say?
            • How often can I help you?
              • Copernicus Glyph: I get my commissions monthly, so come and see me at the start of each calendar month to help out. Any statues you've previously built will likely have been ruined by then, so you'll need to restore them. That means more experience for you all round!
              • What would you like to say?
                • (Shows standard dialogue options - see below)
            • Okay.
              • (Same dialogue as the option "Yes, I remember how to do this." - see above)
    • Tell me about working in this area.
      • (See below)
    • Tell me about the locals.
      • (See below)
    • Let's talk about rewards.
      • What would you like to say?
        • Tell me about skills I can improve.
          • Copernicus Glyph: Working alongside a master sculptor you'll improve your skill in construction. Praying at a statue that honours the local god, that's got to improve your connection to the divine.
          • Player: And if I build a statue to honour a god the locals don't follow?
          • Copernicus Glyph: Good point! Fanatics in the area won't take kindly to that. But you could probably gain some insight into specialised fighting methods by driving them off. That's one reason the statues never last long. I'll have to keep my eye on those fanatics!
        • Tell me about the construction chisel.
          • Copernicus Glyph: If you demonstrate commitment to our work, and to a particular god, then I'll reward you with a construction chisel. Make at least one statue to a particular god for four months; that should show enough dedication. The chisel will not only boost your ability, but it'll also allow you to improve your skill more quickly, too!
        • I'd like to claim a construction chisel.
          • If you aren't eligible to claim a god chisel:
            • Copernicus Glyph: It doesn't seem like you've dedicated yourself enough to a single god to earn one of their chisels yet.
          • If you are eligible to claim a god chisel:
            • (Transcript missing. edit)
        • Let's talk about rewards later.
          • (Back to previous options)
    • More...
      • What would you like to say?
        • Who are you?
          • (See above)
        • What are you trying to do?
          • (See above)
        • Let's talk about something else.
          • (Back to previous options)
        • Never mind.
          • (Ends dialogue)

Attempting to build with a follower out:

  • Copernicus Glyph: I can't concentrate on sculpting with creatures all over the place. Get rid of your follower if you want to help me.

Building a statue[edit | edit source]

Introduction[edit | edit source]

  • Copernicus Glyph: We'll need to use all <number> pieces of scaffolding.
  • Copernicus Glyph: The highest we'll need any scaffolding is <number> blocks high.
  • Copernicus Glyph: The lowest we'll need any scaffolding is <number> blocks high.

Asking advice about the scaffolding[edit | edit source]

If you have not used all pieces of scaffolding:

  • Copernicus Glyph: You are not using enough scaffolding!

If you attempt to use more scaffolding than the target amount:

  • Copernicus Glyph: There's no scaffolding left. You'll need to remove scaffolding from another column first.

If you use all scaffolding but the lowest column is lower than the minimum specified:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Nearly, the lowest column is a bit too low at the moment.

If you use all scaffolding but the highest column is lower than the maximum specified:

  • Copernicus Glyph: We'll need to get higher than that!

Possible lines if a column has the correct amount of scaffolding:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Brilliant! The First[sic] column is perfect!
  • Copernicus Glyph: Good progress! The fourth column is perfect!
  • Copernicus Glyph: There we go, the last column is perfect!

Possible lines if a column has more scaffolding than necessary:

  • Copernicus Glyph: It looks like the first column is too high.
  • Copernicus Glyph: No, the second column is too high.
  • Copernicus Glyph: Oops, the last column is too high!

If all the columns have the right amount of scaffolding: success

  • Copernicus Glyph: Yes! Exactly! This is what I wanted!
  • If enabled, a cutscene of the player and Copernicus Glyph building the statue ensues

Completing the statue[edit | edit source]

  • You receive <number> Construction XP for completing the statue.
  • Copernicus Glyph: Thanks for all your help there. We really put together a masterpiece, didn't we? No doubt the statue will need attention again next month. Well, you may as well pray at the statue while you're here.

After building a statue[edit | edit source]

Praying at the statue[edit | edit source]

If the statue built is related to the god aligned to the area:

  • Your prayer honours <god>.
  • Copernicus Glyph: It looks like you've chosen just the right statue for this area, so there's no worries about fanatics attacking you here.

Continues with one of the following lines, depending on the amount of statues completed:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Right, that's another job well done. It's a good start, but there are four more statues left to go.
  • Copernicus Glyph: Right, that's another job well done. We're making progress, but I still have three statues left to go.
  • Copernicus Glyph: Right, that's another job well done. I'm halfway through my jobs now. Only two statues left to go.
  • Copernicus Glyph: Right, that's another job well done. I'm nearly finished now. Only one statue left to go.

Continues with one of the following lines, the location being one the player hasn't built a statue at yet:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Next stop for me is Lumbridge. Nice place - quiet. In any case, if you can spare the time, I'd appreciate your help there too.
  • Copernicus Glyph: Right, I'm off to do a job for the druids at Taverley. Hopefully they won't try and pay me with their murky potions again. Why not help me with the job?
  • Copernicus Glyph: I'm off to Canifis next, got some work to do for the vampyres. I know the working conditions out there are pretty awful but, if you're willing, I could do with your help.
  • Copernicus Glyph: Hmm, it's my least favourite job next. Ogres are terrible employers, with their unique blend of forgetfulness and violence. If you join me out there to help, I'll be able to get away from there in half the time.
  • If the player has not completed Plague's End:
    • Copernicus Glyph: I'm heading somewhere in Tirannwn, but I don't think you can get there yourself yet. I hope to see you there one day, though.
  • If the player has completed Plague's End:
    • (Transcript missing. edit)

Continues with:

  • What would you like to say?
    • Okay, I'll meet you there.
      • Copernicus Glyph: Great! I look forward to working with you again.
    • Another time perhaps.
      • Copernicus Glyph: Ah well, perhaps someone else will help me. Thank you for your help so far.

Talking to Copernicus[edit | edit source]

  • Copernicus Glyph: Thanks for all your help with the statue again. Check back next month, I'm sure it'll have been destroyed by then. I could do with your help again when it does. The same goes for the other statues I maintain. Who'd have thought I'd be so busy? From Lumbridge to Taverley; from Canifis to Gu'Tanoth; I certainly get about!
  • What would you like to say?
    • (Shows options asking about rewards - see above)

At Taverley[edit | edit source]

About working in this area:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Don't accept any drinks while working! Bunch of weirdoes around here; they'll gulp down anything that'll fit in a vial! Some of the stuff I've seen them cramming in there really beggars belief! Still, it's a nice, peaceful place to work.

About the locals:

  • Copernicus Glyph: They keep going on about 'the balance'. Apparently that's something only Guthix can bring. They make it sound very noble, but to me it's just a way out of making difficult decisions. There's a saying, I seem to recall, about evil winning simply because good men do nothing. Turns out that what counts as balanced depends entirely on your perspective.

At Lumbridge[edit | edit source]

About working in this area:

  • Copernicus Glyph: A lovely piece of stone, a charming town, plenty of people around...this is a great spot to display a statue. Well, let's not waste any time; let's give the people something to admire!

About the locals:

  • Copernicus Glyph: If you've seen the Lumbridge church you might have noticed it's Saradominist. Pretty much everyone here worships Saradomin. They say he's a benevolent and kind god, but it seems to me that his followers enjoy fisticuffs as much as anyone else.

At Canifis[edit | edit source]

About working in this area:

  • Copernicus Glyph: It's tricky working out here. All the moisture in the air makes the stone dust cling to the statue. Still, at least I don't breathe much of the stuff in. It sounds much healthier until your remember there are werewolves around.

About the locals:

  • Copernicus Glyph: It's mainly werewolves here, but it's the vampyres further east that are paying for the statue. See, back in the God Wars, the werewolves were enslaved by Zamorak to fight for him. The vampyres are part of Zamorak's old guard though, and they want a statue in his honour to remind the fleabags of their place.

At Gu'Tanoth[edit | edit source]

About working in this area:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Let's make this quick; I don't like working out here. Ogres can scarcely remember their own names, never mind who they've hired. One minute they're asking me to work for them, the next they're attacking me!

About the locals:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Ogres - bloomin' ogres - like great wandering potatoes.  They can't really remember much of their past but they've handed down stories about Bandos to each other through the generations. How much of it is true I have no idea, but that's the statue they've asked for. I just hope they remember that when it's time to pay up!

At Prifddinas[edit | edit source]

About working in this area:

  • Copernicus Glyph: Oh, this city is wonderful! I found out about its growing through the Anima Mundi. Can you believe this city was grown from a seed? I could retire out here. It's so peaceful.

About the locals:

  • Copernicus Glyph: The elves are a remarkable race. You wouldn't think they've just come out of a civil war - they're so... civil! The elves were very welcoming. Especially when I told them I wanted to build a statue of their queen here!
