Missing Man[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello there.
  • Larrissa: Oh, thank Armadyl! I am in such a worry... please help me!
  • Select an option
    • With what?
      • Player: With what?
      • Larrissa: Oh... it is terrible... horrible... My boyfriend lives here in this lighthouse, but I haven't seen him the last few days! I think something terrible has happened! Look, you can see for yourself that the light has gone out, and the front door is locked up tight! He would NEVER do that! With the light off this coastline is terribly dangerous to ships! And to lock the front door so that nobody can turn the light back on?
      • Player: Maybe he just went on holiday or something? Must be pretty boring living in a lighthouse.
      • Larrissa: That is terribly irresponsible! He is far too thoughtful for that! He would never leave it unattended! He would also never leave without telling me! Please, I know something terrible has happened to him... I can sense it! Please... please help me adventurer!
      • Select an option
        • But how can I help?
          • Player: But how can I help?
          • Larrissa: Well, we have to do something to get the lighthouse working again! Also, as you may have noticed, the storm that knocked the bridge out has trapped me on this causeway! You seem to have got here okay somehow, so if you could go and visit my cousin and get the spare key I left him, as well as fix the bridge enough so that I can go and speak to my family in Rellekka and tell them whats[sic] happened, I will be eternally grateful!
          • (Quest Overview interface opens.)
            • Not right now
            • Accept quest
              • Player: Okay, I'll help!
              • Larrissa: OH! THANK YOU SO MUCH! I know my darling would never have left with the lighthouse lights off and without even telling me where he's gone!
              • Select an option
                • Where is your cousin?
                  • Player: Where is your cousin?
                  • Larrissa: My cousin was always interested in agility. He left our home in Rellekka many moons ago, so that he could pursue this interest. I don't exactly know where he has gone, but I am sure he went somewhere to practise his agility. If you see him, his name is Gunnjorn. Mention my name, he will recognise it.
                  • (Shows the other options.)
                • How can I fix the bridge?
                  • Player: How can I fix the bridge?
                  • Larrissa: Well, I am not just some helpless girl! I have pretty good agility, so you will only need to use two planks to make a ledge that I can balance along. Just use a plank on each side of the bridge. You will need a hammer, and thirty steel nails for each plank you use as well. I believe there are some planks near here...
                  • (Shows the other options.)
                • I'll see what I can do
                  • Player: I'll see what I can do.
                  • Larrissa: Thank you so much!
        • Sorry, just passing through.
    • Sorry, just passing through.
      • Player: Sorry, just passing through.
      • Larrissa: Oh... my poor darling Jossik... I just know something terrible has happened...

The Bridge and the Key[edit | edit source]

Talking to Gunnjorn[edit | edit source]

  • What do you want to ask Gunnjorn about?
    • Talk about Horror from the Deep.
      • Gunnjorn: Haha welcome to my obstacle course. Have fun, but remember this isn't a child's playground. People have died here.
      • (Before first obtaining the key:)
        • Player: Hi, are you called Gunnjorn?
        • Gunnjorn: Why, indeed I am. I own this agility course, it can be very dangerous!
        • Player: Yeah, that's great. Anyway, I understand you have a cousin named Larrissa who gave you a key...?
        • Gunnjorn: Yes, she did! How do you know of this? She said she probably wouldn't need it, but gave it to me for safe keeping just in case.
        • Player: Well, something has happened at the lighthouse, and she has been locked out. I need you to give me her key.
        • Player receives Lighthouse key.
        • Gunnjorn: Sure. Here you go.
      • (If the key has been lost:)
          • Player: Hello again, Gunnjorn. I'm afraid I've lost that key you gave me.
          • Player receives Lighthouse key.
          • Gunnjorn: No problem. Here you go.
    • Talk about the Agility course.
    • Talk about the wall after the log balance.

After obtaining the key and before repairing the bridge[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I've got your key for you!
  • Larrissa: Thank you adventurer, but I need you to fix the bridge for me. The key to the lighthouse is of little comfort while I am trapped here on this causeway!

After repairing the bridge and before obtaining the key[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I've fixed the bridge for you!
  • Larrissa: Oh, thank you so much! Please find the key to the lighthouse for me though! I cannot bear to think that something bad may have happened to my darling Jossik...

After repairing the bridge and obtaining the key[edit | edit source]

The Lighthouse[edit | edit source]

Talking to Larissa[edit | edit source]

  • Larrissa: This is terrible... What could have happened here? Please, you must fix the light, we cannot let my darling Jossik take the blame for any shipwrecks!
  • Player: Okay, I will see what I can do.

Talking to Larissa again[edit | edit source]

  • Player: What am I supposed to be doing again?
  • Larrissa: You MUST find a way to fix the lighthouse! The ships are in terrible danger as long as the light is not working properly!
  • Player: Do you have any idea how I could do that?
  • Larrissa: I'm sorry adventurer, I do not know anything about lighthouses. I'm sure there must be some kind of user's guide around here somewhere though. My darling Jossik knew nothing about Lighthouses when he first came here, so the council must have left him some kind of manual or something.

Attempting to climb down the iron ladder[edit | edit source]

  • Larrissa: Please adventurer, do not let curiosity get the better of you! We have to fix the lighthouse before any accidents happen!

Horror from the Deep[edit | edit source]

Talking to Jossik[edit | edit source]

  • Jossik: *cough* Please... please help me... I think my leg is broken, and those creatures will be back any minute now!
  • Player: I guess you're Jossik then... What creatures are you talking about?
  • Jossik: I... I do not know. I have never seen their like before! I was searching for information about my uncle Silas, who vanished mysteriously from this lighthouse many months ago. I found the secret of that strange wall, and discovered that I could use it as a door, but when I came down here I was attacked by... Well, I do not know what they are, but they are very strong! They hurt me badly enough to trap me here, and I have been fearing for my life ever since!
  • Player: Don't worry, I'm here now. Larrissa was worried about you and asked for my help. I'll go back upstairs and let her know that I've found you and that you're still alive, and then we can work out some way of getting you out of here, okay?
  • Jossik: NO! No, you can't leave me now! Look! They're coming again! Do something!
  • The camera pans in on the water. A dagannoth emerges from it and attacks the player.

Talking to Jossik while the dagannoth or its mother is alive[edit | edit source]

  • You are too busy to talk to Jossik.

Talking to Jossik after killing the dagannoth[edit | edit source]

  • Jossik: No... you do not understand... That was not the creature that attacked me... That was one of its babies...
  • The camera pans in on the water. The Dagannoth mother emerges from it and attacks the player.

Talking to Larrissa before killing the Dagannoth mother[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I found Jossik! He's in a cavern underground...
  • Larrissa: That is wonderful news! But why does he not come up out of there?
  • Player: Um... well, there's a big monster down there with him stopping him leaving.

  • Player: Okay, okay, sheesh, keep your hair on...

  • Player receives rusty casket.
  • Player: Okay, it's dead! Let's get out of here!
  • Jossik: Yes, quickly, the mother might be dead, but its children are not! Follow me upstairs, I might be able to help you with that casket you found. Bring it to my library, it looks familiar somehow...

Post-quest dialogue[edit | edit source]

Jossik[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I see you managed to escape from those monsters intact!
  • Jossik: It seems I was not as injured as I thought I was! I must thank you again for all of your help. Now, about that casket you found on that monster's corpse...
  • Player: I have it here. You said you might be able to tell me something about it?
  • Jossik: I can indeed! Here, let me have a closer look. Yes! There is something written on it! It is very faint, however. Can you read it?
  • What does the casket say?
    • Saradomin.
      • (Continues below.)

Larrissa[edit | edit source]

  • Larrissa: Oh! Thank you so much for all of your help in rescuing my darling Jossik! I do not know what would have happened to him had you not chanced along this path!
