Talking to Mr Mordaut[edit | edit source]

After discovering the mystery[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I paid a visit to the team set up by the south-east temple. I tried one of the doors there, but heard a message in my head that entry was denied.
  • Mr Mordaut: Indeed, this is in line with what my team there has reported. I can only advise you spend time elsewhere in Orthen's ruins - starting with the accessible crypt - and I am certain a solution shall present itself.

After entering the city[edit | edit source]

  • Mr Mordaut: How fare things with the south-eastern temple?
  • Player: Yes, well, right. It appears we've gained access to the eastern side of it and,'s not what we thought.
  • Mr Mordaut: Please, do elaborate.
  • Player: It's full of tiny buildings built entirely out of gold. It's more like someone has built a model village inside of it. The chamber looks distinctly dragonkin, but this little village...not so much.
  • Mr Mordaut: My, my. How intriguing! Have you figured anything else out about it?
  • Player: Not as of yet. I feel it might take me some time to uncover the mystery here, but I plan to experiment. In the meantime, there's plenty of excavating to be done!

After placing both artefacts in the Xolo city[edit | edit source]

  • Mr Mordaut: Ah, my team from the south-eastern temple have reported back. We've dubbed the model village in there as Xolo City, based on findings both there and within the Moksha Ritual Site.
  • Player: I placed a couple of artefacts found there - one atop the main pyramid, another on a nearby building.
  • Mr Mordaut: And? What happened?
  • Player: Some strange shadowy energy flew out from the top of the pyramid and absorbed into me.
  • Mr Mordaut: Oh, my. That sounds serious.
  • Player: I'm stumped as to what to do next.
  • Mr Mordaut: See a doctor, perhaps? That does not sound healthy.
  • Player: I meant about this mystery.
  • Mr Mordaut: Hmm, I expect you shall figure it out eventually.

After completing the mystery[edit | edit source]

  • Mr Mordaut: Did you manage to figure out what that shadowy energy you absorbed was or did?
  • Player: Actually, yes. The next time I visited the mysterious monolith back at the Archaeology Guild, it felt like it went from me into it. It increased the total capacity of the monolith for my relic powers.
  • Mr Mordaut: How incredibly odd...and intriguing. What connection could there possibly have been between a strange little city of gold NOT built by dragonkin and that mysterious monolith back at the campus?
  • Player: I'm not convinced it is a direct connection. Perhaps there is something in the various journal pages I have discovered at Orthen that makes sense of it all...

Attempting to enter[edit | edit source]

Without a lingram stone[edit | edit source]

  • Entry denied.
  • (Without having the mystery uncovered:)
    • Mystery Uncovered: 'Mysterious City'.
    • (Continues below)
  • Player: That voice was in my head. I think it came from the stone dragonkin head above the door. Clearly, I'm missing something...

With a lingram stone[edit | edit source]

  • Moksha memories detected. Present lingam stone for identification.
  • Present lingam stone to the door?
    • Yes.
      • Player places the lingram stone into the door
      • Welcome, Skeka. You may enter.
      • (Dialogue ends)
    • No.
      • Player: Maybe later, I don't want to lose this yet.
      • (Dialogue ends)

Entering the door[edit | edit source]

  • Camera pans to the Xolo temple pyramid
  • Player: Wow! This is amazing! What is it?
  • Camera returns to normal

Placing artefacts[edit | edit source]

Inspecting the Xolo temple pyramid[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hmm, this looks somewhat familiar. It looks like something is missing from atop this pyramid.
  • If the player has a restored gold dish in their inventory
    • Player: In fact, this gold dish artefact looks like it might fit...
    • Place gold dish atop pyramid?
      • Yes.
        • Player rapidly climbs the steps to the top of the pyramid and places the gold dish there, creating a Miniature Moksha device atop the pyramid
        • Player: Okay, now what? That didn't seem to do anything.
        • (Dialogue ends)
      • No.
        • Player: Maybe later.
        • (Dialogue ends)

Inspecting the Xolo building next to the temple pyramid[edit | edit source]


  • Player: It looks like something is missing from atop this little building.
  • If the player has a restored 'Raksha' idol in their inventory
    • Player: Huh, this 'Raksha' idol looks like it might fit...
    • Place 'Raksha' Idol atop building?
      • Yes.
        • Player places the idol on top of the building
        • If the player has already placed the gold dish on top of the Xolo pyramid
          • Some strange shadowy energy flies out from the top of the pyramid and absorbs into the player.
          • Player: What was that? I feel...different. Still myself, though.
          • (Dialogue ends)
      • No.
        • Player: Not right now.
        • (Dialogue ends)

With the 'Raksha' idol already placed

Interacting with the Monolith at the Varrock Dig Site[edit | edit source]
