After uncovering the mystery[edit | edit source]

Before agreeing to the contract terms[edit | edit source]

  • Strange device: I remember. Thank you, stranger. I am indebted to you.
  • Strange device: Unfortunately, I also now recall why I lost myself. I have been trapped in this inanimate object for time immeasurable, unable to move, alone with my thoughts.
  • Player: That's enough to drive anyone to madness.
  • Strange device: Thankfully, us demons can detach our conscious selves, so the impact on me has been minimal. The downside is that we must rely on others to bring us back to ourselves. However, I am still imprisoned in this cruel device. Might I ask one last favour of you? Please, set me free.
  • Player: Er...
  • Strange device: Allow me to overcome any concerns or prejudices you may have. I merely long to be free.
  • What you would you ask Xil'gar Trog?
    • Why would I free a demon?.
      • Strange device: Why would you not? Demons are not inherently good or evil. I sense you know this, that you are on friendly terms with a number of my kind.
      • Strange device: My only wish is to be free from this cruel contraption. Whatever my crimes, no one deserves such a fate.
      • (Shows previous options)
    • Why would I free a Zamorakian?
      • Strange device: I have been imprisoned so long, left here to rot by enemy and friend alike. I owe no allegiances.
      • Strange device: In addition, I can sense that I am no longer contractually obliged to anyone.
      • Strange device: I have no doubt the world has moved on, and if I might re-enter it, I would have to reconsider my own allegiances regardless.
      • Strange device: Why would I not owe allegiance to the one who sets me free?
      • (Shows previous options)
    • Why would I free an assassin?
      • Strange device: One person's assassin is another's hero. I was fighting back against a regime that was oppressive to my kind, fighting for our freedom.
      • Strange device: My attempt at killing key personnel in this place was meant as precursor for an assault, to sow disarray and confusion to ease our victory.
      • Strange device: But I was chosen for this task simply due to my placement here, not because I am particularly adept at it. As can be seen in my failure.
      • Strange device: I am no assassin; I merely attempted an assassination. I am no danger to you.
      • (Shows previous options)
    • Why would I free you?
      • Strange device: I am no longer contracted to another. I would be willing to enter into a contract with you, the details of which should appeaese any concerns you might have of me.
      • Strange device: In addition, I can offer you a boon or reward of some sort. You would not ever need to make use of it should it make you uncomfortable to do so, but you would have the option.
      • Strange device: I would either hurt or not hurt any entities you would desire me to.
      • Strange device: You would owe me nothing. I am already greatly indebted to you, and freeing me further would place me further in that debt.
      • (Shows previous options)
    • I've heard enough for now.
      • Strange device: So, will you help free me? If you have remaining concerns, there is one way to both free me and yet keep me under your power.
      • Player: How's that?
      • Strange device: This is Kharid-et, correct? Then somewhere here you should be able to find a small container known as a portable phylactery. It's like a smaller version of this trap I currently reside in, so I would still be trapped, just removed from this place.
      • Player: Okay, but how would that be any better?
      • Strange device: I would at least be able to sense my surroundings and see out of the phylactery. I would no longer be alone. It also would not cause me pain as this device does. And should I ever gain your trust, you could more easily set me free simply by breaking the phylactery. Should you do this, I will make a pact to follow your commands and yours alone, until such a time as you release me from your service.
      • Do you agree to Xil'gar Trog's contract terms?

After agreeing to the contract terms[edit | edit source]

If you don't have a portable phylactery:

  • Strange device: What say you, stranger? Will you spare me from my awful fate? You will require a restored portable phylactery.
  • Player: Let me get back to you.
  • Strange device: I have been in here for centuries. What is one more day?

If you have a portable phylactery:

  • Would you like to use a phylactery on the demon trap to transfer Xil'gar Trog's soul?
  • Transfer Trog into the phylactery?
    • Yes.
      • Player interacts with Strange device
      • Player receives Xil'gar Trog's soul.
      • Congratulations! You have completed 'The Forgotten Prisoner' - Solve this mystery.
      • You gain 54,000 Archaeology XP for completing a mystery!
    • No.

Dr Nabanik[edit | edit source]

Before agreeing to the contract terms[edit | edit source]

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

After agreeing to the contract terms[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I decided to free Xil'gar Trog, but only transferring him into a portable phylactery for the time being.
  • Dr Nabanik: So, a decision to act, but also a decision deferred. Once in the phylactery, bring it to me. I can judge the terms of any contract you make with it.

After freeing Xil'gar Trog, completing the mystery[edit | edit source]

  • Player: What do you make of this demon soul, Dr Nabanik?
  • Dr Nabanik: Hmmm, if I'm not mistaken, that is the soul of a tsutsaroth demon.
  • Player: What use is it?
  • Dr Nabanik: I think all will reveal itself in time...
