Observatory Reception[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hi, are you busy?
  • Observatory assistant: Me? I'm always busy. See that man there? That's the professor. If he had his way, I think he'd never let me sleep! Anyway, how might I help you?
  • Select an option
    • I was wondering what you do here.
      • Player: I was wondering what you do here.
      • Observatory assistant: Glad you ask. This is the Observatory reception. Up on the cliff is the Observatory dome, from which you can view the heavens. Usually...
      • Player: What do you mean, 'usually'?
      • Observatory professor: *Ahem*. Back to work, please.
      • Observatory assistant: I'd speak with the professor. He'll explain.
      • (Shows initial options)
    • Just looking around, thanks.
      • Player: Just looking around, thanks.
      • Observatory assistant: Okay, just don't break anything. If you need any help, let me know.
      • The assistant continues with his work.
    • Can I have a look through that telescope?
      • Player: Can I have a look through that telescope?
      • Observatory assistant: You can. You won't see much though.
      • Player: And that's because?
      • Observatory assistant: Just talk to the professor. He'll fill you in.
      • (Shows initial options)

The Broken Telescope[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: What would you like to talk about?
  • Choose an option:
    • Talk about the Observatory Quest.
      • Player: Hi, I was...
      • Observatory professor: Welcome to the magnificent wonder of the Observatory, where wonder is all around you, where the stars can be clutched from the heavens!
      • Player: Wow, nice intro.
      • Observatory professor: Why, thanks! How might I help you?
      • Select an option
        • I'm totally lost.
          • Player: I'm totally lost.
          • Observatory professor: Lost? It must have been those pesky goblins that led you astray. Head north-east to find the city of Ardougne.
          • Player: I'm sure I'll find the way. Thanks for all your help.
          • Observatory professor: No problem at all. Come and visit again!
          • The professor carries on with his studies.
        • An Observatory?
          • Player: An Observatory?
          • Observatory professor: Of course. We have a superb telescope up in the Observatory, on the hill. A truly marvellous invention, the likes of which you'll never behold again.
          • Observatory assistant: Well, it would be if it worked.
          • Observatory professor: Don't interrupt!
          • Player: What? It doesn't work?
          • Observatory professor: Oh, no, no, no. Don't listen to him, he's joking. Aren't you, my FAITHFUL assistant?
          • Observatory assistant: Nope, dead serious. Hasn't been working for a long time.
          • Observatory professor: Arghhh! Get back to work and stop sticking your nose in!
          • Player: So, it's broken. How come?
          • Observatory professor: Oh, I suppose there's no use keeping it secret. Did you see those houses outside?
          • Player: Up on the hill? Yes, I've seen them.
          • Observatory professor: It's a horde of goblins. Since they moved here they have caused nothing but trouble. Last week, my telescope was tampered with. Now, parts need replacing before it can be used again. They've even been messing around in the dungeons under this area. Something needs to be done.
          • Observatory assistant: Strikes me that this visitor could help us.
          • Observatory professor: Stop being so rude. ... Although, he has a point. What do you say?
          • Player: What, me?
          • (Opens quest overview interface)
            • Not right now
              • Player: Oh, sorry, I don't have time for that.
              • Observatory Professor: Oh dear. I really do need some help. If you see anyone who can help then please send them my way.
            • Accept quest
              • Player: Sounds interesting, what can I do for you?
              • Observatory professor: Oh, thanks so much. I shall need some materials for the telescope, so it can be used again. Let's start with three planks of wood for the telescope base. My assistant will help with obtaining these, won't you?
              • Observatory assistant: As if I don't have enough to do. Seems I don't have a choice.
              • Observatory professor: Go talk to him if you need some advice.
              • Player: Okay, I'll be right back.
        • I'm just passing through.
          • Player: I'm just passing through.
          • Observatory professor: Fair enough. Not everyone is interested in this place, I suppose.
          • The professor carries on with his studies.
    • Talk about Treasure Trails.

    • Player: What's the best way for me to get molten glass?
    • Observatory assistant: There are many ways, but I'd suggest making it yourself. Get yourself a bucket of sand and some soda ash, which you can get from using seaweed with a furnace. Use the soda ash and sand together in a furnace and bang - molten glass is all yours. There's a book about it on the table if you want to know more.
    • Player: Thank you!

        • Observatory assistant: It'll need to be made to an exact shape and size.
        • Observatory professor: Well, obviously, hence why we have a lens mould.
        • Observatory assistant: Not any more. One of those goblins took it.
        • Observatory professor: Great, just what I need. Player, I don't suppose you could find it?
        • Player: I'll have a look - where should I start?

  • If you don't have the lens mould in the inventory:
    • Player: Where can I find this lens mould you mentioned?
    • Observatory assistant: I'm sure I heard one of those goblins talking about it. I bet they've hidden it somewhere. Probably using it for some strange purpose, I'm sure.
    • Player: What makes you say that?
    • Observatory assistant: I had a nice new star chart, until recently. I went out to do an errand for the professor the other day, only to see a goblin using it... ...as some kind of makeshift hankey to blow his nose!
    • Player: Oh dear.
    • Observatory assistant: You may want to look through the dungeon they have under their little village.
    • Player: Thanks for the advice.
  • If you have the lens mould:
    • Player: I have the lens mould.
    • Observatory assistant: Well done on finding that! I am honestly quite impressed. Make sure you take it straight to the professor.
    • Player: Will do.

Dungeon[edit | edit source]

    • Talk about the Observatory Quest.

      • If you don't have the lens mould in the inventory:
        • Player: Still looking for it.
        • Observatory Professor: Please try and find it; my assistant may be able to help.
      • If you have the lens mould:
        • Player: I certainly have. You'll never guess what they were doing with it.
        • Observatory professor: Well, from the smell I'd guess cooking some vile concoction.
        • Player: Wow, good guess. Well, here you go.
        • Observatory assistant: Please don't give that to him. Last time he tried any Crafting, I had to spend a week cleaning up after the explosion.
        • Player: Explosion?
        • Observatory professor: Erm, yes. I think in this instance you had probably better do it.
        • Player: I suppose it's better I don't ask.
        • Observatory professor: You can use the mould with molten glass to make a new lens.
        • The professor gives you back the molten glass.
    • Talk about Treasure Trails.
      • (Non-quest dialogue)

Continues with:

  • If you don't have the observatory lens in the inventory:
    • Player: How should I make this lens?
    • Observatory assistant: Just use the molten glass with the mould. Simple.
    • Player: Thanks!
  • If you have the lens:
    • Player: Do you like this lens? Good, huh?
    • Observatory assistant: Nice. What's that scratch?
    • Player: Oh, erm, that's a feature. Yes, that's it! Indubitably, it facilitates the triangulation of photonic illumination to the correct...

      • If you have the lens:
        • Player: Yes, here it is. You may as well take this mould too.
        • Observatory professor: Wonderful, at last I can fix the telescope. Would you accompany me to the Observatory? You simply must see the telescope in operation.
        • Player: Sounds interesting. Count me in.
        • Observatory professor: Superb. You'll have to go via the dungeon under the goblin settlement, seeing as the bridge is broken. You'll find stairs up to the Observatory from there.
        • Player: Okay. See you there.
        • The screen fades to and from black and the professor is gone.
        • The professor has gone ahead to the Observatory dome. Best you follow him to see the finished telescope.
    • Talk about Treasure Trails.
      • (Non-quest dialogue)

Departing[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello again.
  • Observatory assistant: Ah, it's the telescope repairman! The professor is waiting for you in the Observatory.
  • Player: How can I get to the Observatory?
  • Observatory assistant: Well, since the bridge was ruined, you will have to travel through the dungeon under the goblins' settlement.

The Observatory[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: Oh, hi there! I'm just adding the finishing touches.
  • Player: Okay, don't let me interrupt!
  • Observatory professor: Thank you. Right, let's get this finished.
  • Observatory professor: Hmmmm...
  • Observatory professor: Bit of a tap here...
  • Observatory professor: Player, I'm just going upstairs to finish off.
  • Player: Right-oh.
  • Observatory professor: In goes the lens.
  • Observatory professor: Looking good.
  • Observatory professor: And one final adjustment.

      • (Non-quest dialogue)

Looking through the telescope:

  • You look through the telescope.

Talking to the professor again:

Continues with:

  • Player: <constellation>!
  • If incorrect:
    • Observatory professor: I'm afraid not. Have another look. Remember, you can check the star charts on the walls for reference.
  • If correct:
    • Observatory professor: That's exactly it!
    • Player: Yes! Woo hoo!
    • (Continues below, with dialogue about the constellation observed)

Aquarius[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Aquarius, the water-bearer. It seems suitable, then, to award you with water runes!

Aries[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Aries, the ram. A fierce fighter. I'm sure he'll look down on you and improve your Attack for such insight.

Cancer[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Cancer, the crab. An armoured creature - I think I shall reward you with an amulet of protection.

Capricorn[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Capricorn, the goat. Capricorn will surely reward your insight with an increase to your Strength.

Gemini[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Gemini, the twins. With the double nature of Gemini, I can't offer you anything more suitable than a two-handed weapon.

Leo[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Leo, the lion. I think the majestic power of the lion will improve your Constitution.

Libra[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Libra, the scales. Hmmm, balance, law, order - I shall award you with law runes!

Pisces[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Pisces, the fish. What's more suitable as a reward than some tuna?

Sagittarius[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Sagittarius, the centaur. As you've spotted the archer, I shall reward you with a maple longbow.

Scorpio[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Scorpio, the scorpion. I think weapon poison would make a suitable reward.

Taurus[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Taurus, the bull. This Strength potion should be a suitable reward.

Virgo[edit | edit source]

  • Observatory professor: That's Virgo, the virtuous. Virgo will surely provide you with an increase to Defense.

Finishing[edit | edit source]

  • A crafting XP lamp, an uncut sapphire and a reward related to the observed constellation appear in the player's inventory.
  • Observatory professor: By Saradomin's earlobes! You must be a friend of the gods indeed. Look in your backpack for your reward, in payment for your work. I'll unlock the doors to make it easier for you to get back.
  • Player: And I suppose I'll just jump down?
  • Observatory professor: Oh right! I'll just have my assistant tie a rope off or something... Perhaps in the future you can help me fix the bridge, but there's too much preparation I'll have to do before then.
Congratulations! Quest complete!
