  • Librarian: Welcome to the Keldagrim library, Player! You've given me a lot of new material to work into my history of Keldagrim. Actually, I wonder if you could give me a first-hand account?
    • I'll give you my account. [Replay cutscenes]
    • If you have the Azdaran document
      • Look what I found - The Azdaran Document!
        • Player: Look what I found - The Azdaran Document!
        • The librarian quickly reads through the document.
        • Librarian: Incredible! I had no idea that the full document still existed. This puts out Azdaran fragment in a whole new light.
          • It makes Zamorak look evil! Zamorak isn't evil!
            • Player: It makes Zamorak look evil! Zamorak isn't evil!
            • Librarian: Well... 'evil' is an emotive word which I'd avoid using in serious historical discourse. As with any source, you've got to take into account that this was written from a particular point of view. A Zamorakian version of events might have told the story quite differently.
          • Why would Zamorak do this to the dwarves?
            • Player: Why would Zamorak do this to the dwarves?
            • Librarian: This is just my speculation...but why would any god do anything during a war between the gods? Because he thought it would help him win. If his plan had succeeded, Zamorak would have gained a substantial army of chaos dwarves. From what we've seen of modern-day ones they would be aggressive, fearless, and easy to control. I don't know what the strategic situation in the God Wars was at that point. It's quite possible that an army of chaos dwarves would have allowed him to win a major victory - maybe even win the way. Thanks to the elders to Keldagrim, the only chaos dwarves he gained were from the small surface communities not protected by Keldagrim or Saradomin. A substantial army, but not what he wanted.
          • Why did Saradomin only protect the Imcando dwarves?
            • Player: Why did Saradomin only protect the Imcando dwarves?
            • Librarian: My guess would be that protecting the Imcando dwarves required a lot of power or resources, and he wasn't able to protect the Keldagrim dwarves as well as his own. Either that, or he simply wasn't aware of Keldagrim. The Elders made the city underground in the first place in order to hide it. Perhaps Zamorak found it and Saradomin didn't.
          • Can you tell me more about pre-monarchy Keldagrim?
            • Player: Can you tell me more about pre-monarchy Keldagrim?
            • Librarian: The document you're holding contains nearly all the information we have! Most of our history books start with the Era of Kings, and are necessarily vague about the early years of that era. In popular imagination, King Gozdaron is a semi-mythical figure, anointed by Guthix himself. Until you found this document, we had no idea how he really became the first king. We knew that Keldagrim was built by magic-using dwarves, but we knew nothing about their society. The original Keldagrim must have been very different from the present one, and we can only imagine what it was like.
          • That's all, thanks!

    • Can you tell me more about the library?
      • Player: Can you tell me more about the library?
      • Librarian: Why certainly, it is one of my favourite subjects! I am Hugi, you see, I am the chief librarian here. Hugi, my parents named me that, it means 'personification of thought' in the ancient dwarvish tongue. Quite like the name myself. The books in this library have been collected for many centuries now, through various generous donations. You'll find books dating from many different eras as well, such as the Era of Kings, the Rise of the Consortium and the Era of Prosperity, our current era.
      • Player: How do these eras correspond with the Ages of the world?
      • Librarian: Oh, they are quite different, and most of them take place in the Fourth Age. Since dwarves hid underground for a long time to sit out the wars that rages above the ground our history books differ slightly from those written by humans.
      • Player: Thanks for the information!

    • What do you know about impenetrable rocks?
      • Player: What do you know about impenetrable rocks?
      • Librarian: You're confusing me, what rock exactly are you talking about?
      • Player: The big one in the mines south of the city. Dondakan's big rock.
      • Librarian: I see, I see. I heard there was a demon inside there you banished.
      • Player: Yes, what exactly does that mean anyway?
      • Librarian: There are some demons that we cannot see properly as mortals. They also cannot be fought with normal weapons. But sometimes these creatures manifest themselves in a solid form in our world. Their avatar. When you defeat an avatar, you defeat the actual demon behind it. But they don't die, they are banished to where they came from originally.
      • Player: Does that mean I will have to deal with this demon again some time?
      • Librarian: Doubtful. He will grow stronger and stronger over time, but that's a process that will take a thousand years at least. Even dwarves don't live so long. No, we won't see him again and the mines are safe to dig for gold now. Of course, that might lead to other problems eventually...
