Starting out[edit | edit source]

Speaking to Thormac[edit | edit source]

First time[edit | edit source]

  • Thormac: Hello I am Thormac the Sorcerer, I don't suppose you could be of assistance to me?
    • What do you need assistance with?
      • Thormac: I've lost my pet scorpions. They're lesser Kharid scorpions, a very rare breed. I left their cage door open, now I don't know where they've gone. There's three of them, and they're quick little beasties. They're all over Runescape.
        • So how would I go about catching them then?
          • Player: So how would I go about catching them then?
          • Thormac: Well I have a scorpion cage here which you can use to catch them in.
          • Thormac gives you a cage.
          • Thormac: If you go up to the village of Seers, to the North of here, one of them will be able to tell you where the scorpions are now.
            • What's in it for me?
              • (Same as below.)
            • Ok, I will do it then.
              • Player: Ok, I will do it then.
        • What's in it for me?
          • Player: What's in it for me?
          • Thormac: Well I suppose I can aid you with my skills as a staff sorcerer. Most battlestaffs around here are a bit puny. I can beef them up for you a bit. If you go up to the village of Seers, to the North of here, one of them will be able to tell you where the scorpions are now.
            • So how would I go about catching them then?
              • (Same as above.)
            • Ok, I will do it then.
              • (Same as above.)
        • I'm not interested then.
          • Thormac: Blast, I suppose I'll have to find someone else then.
    • I'm a little busy.
      • (Dialogue ends.)

Afterward[edit | edit source]

  • Thormac: How goes your quest?
    • If [Player lost or destroyed the cage]
      • Player: I've lost my cage.
      • Thormac: Ok, here's another cage. You're almost as bad at losing things as me.
    • If [Player has not caught all the scorpions yet]
      • Player: I've not caught all the scorpions yet.
      • Thormac: Well remember to go speak to the Seers, North of here, if you need any help.

Seer's first riddle[edit | edit source]

  • Seer: Uh, what was that dark force? I've never sensed anything like it... Anyway, sorry about that.
    • What have you sensed lately?
      • (Non-quest dialogue)
    • Talk about Scorpion Catcher.
      • Seer: Many greetings.
        • Your friend Thormac sent me to speak to you.
          • Player: Your friend Thormac sent me to speak to you.
          • Seer: What does the old fellow want?
          • Player: He's lost his valuable lesser Kharid scorpions.
          • Seer: Well you have come to the right place. I am a master of animal detection. Let me look into my looking glass.
            • The seer produces a small mirror.
            • The seer gazes into the mirror.
            • The seer smoothes his hair with his hand.
            • Seer: I can see a scorpion that you seek. It resides in a dark place, between a lake and a holy island. There by the entrance shall you find it. So close and yet so far.
            • Player: That was cryptic. Can't you just tell me where it is?
            • Seer: Where would be the fun in that?
        • I need to locate some scorpions.
          • Player: I need to locate some scorpions.
          • Seer: Well you have come to the right place. I am a master of animal detection. Do you need to locate any particular scorpion? Scorpions are a creature somewhat in abundance.
          • Player: I'm looking for some lesser Kharid scorpions. They belong to Thormac the sorcerer.
          • Seer: Let me look into my looking glass.
            • (Same as above)
        • I seek knowledge and power.

Obtaining the Dusty key[edit | edit source]

  • Velrak the explorer:  Thank you for rescuing me! It isn't very comfy in this cell.
    • So... do you know anywhere good to explore?
      • Player:  So... do you know anywhere good to explore?
      • Velrak the explorer:  Well, this dungeon was quite good to explore ...until I got captured, anyway. I was given a key to an inner part of this dungeon by a mysterious cloaked stranger! It's rather tough for me to get that far into the dungeon however... I just keep getting captured! Would you like to give it a go?
        • Yes please!
          • Player:  Yes please!
          • Velrak reaches somewhere mysterious and passes you a key.
        • No, it's too dangerous for me too.
          • Player:  No, it's too dangerous for me too.
    • Do I get a reward?
      • Player:  Do I get a reward? For freeing you and all...
      • Velrak the explorer:  Well... not really... The Black Knights took all of my stuff before throwing me in here to rot!

      • Player: Hi, I've retrieved the first scorpion.
      • Seer: Well, I've checked my looking glass. The second Kharid Scorpion has been spirited away by a brute of a man. He runs a shop in a village two canoe trips from Lumbridge. That's all I can tell you about that scorpion.
      • Player: Any more scorpions?
      • Seer: It's good that you should ask. I have information on the last scorpion for you. It seems to be in some sort of upstairs room. There's some brown clothing lying on a table nearby.
      • Player: Oh come on now! Brown clothing? That's not a clue!
      • Seer: Alright alright! The clothing is adorned with a golden four-pointed star. Happy now?
      • Player: Not really.
      • Seer: Fine! You should go to where monks reside.
      • Player: Up a tree?

      • Player: I've heard you have a small scorpion in your possession.
      • Peksa: Now, how could you know about that, I wonder. Mind you, I don't have it anymore. I gave it as a present to my brother Ivor when I visited our outpost in the west. Well, actually I hid it in his room so it would nip him. It was a bit of a surprise gift.
      • Player: So where's this outpost?
      • Peksa: It's a fair old trek to the west, across the White Wolf Mountains. Then head west, north-west until you see the axes and horned helmets.

      • Peksa: No problem! Tell Ivor I said hi!
