Regular dialogues[edit | edit source]

Without spade in inventory[edit | edit source]

  • Strange Old Man: Dig, dig, DIG! You want to dig? You need a spade!
  • Player: Yes you're right, I probably do. Where can I get one?
  • Strange Old Man: Ohh... Spades have cost me so much hassle - always being pestered for them! I ended up giving in and just putting one at each mound for you forgetful adventurers to use.

During The Temple at Senntisten[edit | edit source]

Before getting the Barrows icon[edit | edit source]

  • Strange Old Man: At last, the time comes. I have been expecting your arrival since before you were born.
  • Player: You're not speaking gibberish any more, what is going on?
  • Strange Old Man: After all this time, I'm not of the 'It will wait another day' school of thought. You can ask our employer what is going on.
  • Strange Old Man: For now, get into the Barrows, show the brothers who is boss, and recover the icon.
  • Strange Old Man: They will not hand it over without a good beating, though. So batter the lot of them, to be sure.
  • Player: Right, but I always thought you were just some mad old bloke with a spade obsession.
  • Strange Old Man: I do my best to look useless; if only they knew the truth. it would chill their hearts.
  • Strange Old Man: Anyway, who knows who is listening? I'd best get back to what I do for now.
  • Player: Dig, I guess?

After getting the Barrows icon[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Strange Old Man: You have it! Oh, the master will be delighted.
  • Player: Are you talking about the icon I got from the Barrows?
  • Strange Old Man: Indeed, indeed! Run to him, run as fast as you can!
  • Player: Run back to Azzanadra? Why?
  • Strange Old Man: No reason, I just like to make people run places.
  • Strange Old Man: And how they run! You have to get the voice right, though.
  • Player: I see.
  • Strange Old Man: It can get a bit lonely here, I suppose. Still, there's always digging!

If you lose the Barrows icon[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I've lost the icon I got from the Barrows.
  • Strange Old Man: Could be...could be I found a little something. A trinket, see?
  • The Strange Old man shakingly hands you the Barrows icon.
  • Strange Old Man: See? Digging is not so crazy now!

Claiming the morytania hard task set reward for the first time[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I've completed all of the Hard Tasks in the Morytania set.
  • Strange Old Man: So you have. I have some special leggings kept aside for you.
  • The Strange Old Man hands you a pair of leggings and a lamp.
  • Strange Old Man: There you go. They be a bit strange, but they should help you out when you're getting rid of pesky shades once and for all.
  • Player: Thanks! What else do they do?
  • Strange Old Man: Well, ghosties will understand you, and I've had a word with Hiylik, so you'll get better rewards for helping unfortunates to the temple. Ahh...they also protect a little from the foul influence of the Barrows, and they seem to be linked with those...tablet things you use to get to the Altar of Blood.
