Lathas' Request[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello King Lathas.
  • King Lathas: Adventurer, thank Saradomin or your arrival!
  • Player: Have your scouts found a way through the mountains?
  • King Lathas: Not quite, we found a path to where we expected to find the Well of Voyage, an ancient portal to the western mainland. However during recent times a cluster of cultists have settled there, run by a madman named Iban.
  • Player: Iban?
  • King Lathas: A crazy loon who claims to be the son of Zamorak. Go meet my main tracker, Koftik. He will help you. He waits for you at the west side of West Ardougne. We must find a way through these caverns if we are to stop my brother Tyras.
  • Player: I'll do my best Lathas.
  • King Lathas: A warning traveller, the underground pass is lethal. We lost many men exploring those caverns. Go prepared with food and armour or you won't last long.

Talking to King Lathas before leaving

  • Player: Hello King Lathas.
  • King Lathas: Traveller, how are you managing down there?
  • Player: It's a pretty nasty place but I'm OK.
  • King Lathas: Well keep up the good work.

The Underground Pass[edit | edit source]

Meeting Koftik[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello there, are you the King's scout?
  • Koftik: That I am, brave adventurer. King Lathas informed me that you need to cross these mountains. I'm afraid you'll have to go through the ancient underground pass.
  • Player: That's OK, I've travelled through many a cave in my time.
  • Koftik: These caves are different... They're filled with the spirit of Zamorak! You can feel it as you wind your way round the stalagmites... an icy chill that penetrates the very fabric of your being... Not so many travellers come down here these days, ... but there are some who are still foolhardy enough.
    • Player: I'll take my chances.
      • Koftik: Okay traveller, I'll catch up with you by the bridge.
    • Player: Tell me more...
      • Koftik: I remember seeing one such warrior. Going by the name of Randas... he stood tall and proud like an Elven King... That same pride made him vulnerable to Zamorak's calls. Randas' worthy desire to be a great and mighty warrior also made him corruptible to Zamorak's promises of glory. ...Zamorak showed him a way to achieve his goals by appealing to that most base and dark nature ...that resides in all of us.
      • Player: What happened to him?
      • Koftik: No one knows...
Talking to Koftik again
  • Koftik: I know it's scary in there, but you'll have to go in alone. I'll catch up as soon as I can.

Failing to cross the swamp[edit | edit source]

  • You try to cross the swamp...
  • The swamp seems to cling to your legs.
  • You feel yourself being slowly dragged below...
  • Player: Gulp!
  • You tumble deep into the crevasse.
  • You land battered and bruised at the base.
  • Player: Aargh!

Charred Remains[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Koftik, how can we cross the bridge?
  • Koftik: I'm not sure, seems as if others were here before us though... I found this cloth amongst the charred remains of some arrows.
  • Player: Charred arrows? They must have been trying to burn something. Or someone! Interesting... we better keep our eyes open.
  • Koftik: I have also found the remains of a book...
    • Player: Not to worry, probably just litter.
      • Koftik: Well.. maybe?
    • Player: What does it say?
      • Koftik: It seems to be written by the adventurer Randas. It reads...
      • (The book is displayed)

Talking to Koftik again after crossing

  • Player: Hi Koftik
  • Koftik: Hi - I found this cloth amongst the charred remains of some arrows, perhaps you need it?
  • Koftik gives you a damp cloth.

The Diary of Randas[edit | edit source]

It began as a whisper in my ears. Dismissing the sounds as the whistling of the wind I steeled myself against these forces, and continued on my way.

But the whispers became moans...

At once fearsome and enticing like the call of some beautiful siren.

Join us!

Our greatness lies within you, but only Zamorak can unlock your potential....

One True Path[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello Koftik.
  • Koftik: Do you hear them? The voices tell me things.
  • Player: Are you OK?
  • Koftik: The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
  • Player: Tyranny of the righteous? What?
  • Koftik: So many paths to choose... Here we must all take our own path.

The slave pens[edit | edit source]

The first slave[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • SLave: Eating me... they keep eating me! Eating me from the inside. please stop them! ... I can feel them wriggling around inside me right now. ...please stop them.

The second and third slave[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Slave: Blood, blood... never enough blood to go round. When I lift up my arm like this, it all pours back into my body. I hope it remember to go back inside my arm. And don't even ask me about my legs.. how much blood are they going to need? Blood is important. We must offer it to Zamorak every day as proof of our devotion. I just hope I don't run out!

The fourth slave[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello, are you okay.
  • Slave: Oh yes, you're a fine one. Nice red cheeks, shiny hair. Let's see now, some potatoes, some cabbage... Maybe half a clove of garlic... ...Yes I think you'd make a fine soup. You don't mind do you?
  • Player: Actually I do.
  • Slave: You're welcome to have some with me of course...

The fifth slave[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello there.
  • Slave: Mwarrr fnnntchh. Gbpp dng sktd delp?
  • Player: Pardon?
  • Slave: Kjp lar falut: Gbpp dng sktd delp?
  • Player: Sorry, I don't under...
  • Slave: Mwarrr fnnntchh. Gbpp dng sktd delp? GPP DNG SKTD DELP!

The sixth and seventh slave[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello...
  • Slave: Kill the villagers, burn them all... every last one. I want nothing to survive ...nothing but the sweet smell of burning flesh...
  • Player: You're ill!
  • Slave: What's that.. you've never smelt it before? Well, lets just say that it's an acquired taste...

Slave number eight[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Slave: What's that... Is that a dagger I see before me? Why should I bear the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, For what is a man but this quintessence of dust? And so I say goodnight sweet prince. The rest is silence.

Ninth and tenth[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Slave: Danger, everywhere danger! But not from man nor beast! This is the danger that is inside you. Bring it out, nurture it, cherish it. Stroke it like you would stroke a wounded bird... then strangle it before it takes hold of your very being. Don't say I didn't warn you.

The Paladins[edit | edit source]

Sir Jerro[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello Paladin.
  • Sir Jerro: Traveller, what are you doing in this most unholy place?
  • Player: I'm looking for a safe route through the caverns, under order of King Lathas.
  • Sir Jerro: You've done well to get this far traveller, here eat...
  • Player: Great, thanks a lot.

Talking to him again

  • Player: Hello Paladin.
  • Sir Jerro: You should leave this place now traveller, I heard the crashing of rocks further down the cavern. Iban must be restless. I doubt not that Zamorak still influences these caverns. A little further on lies the great door of Iban. We've tried everything, but it will not let us enter. Leave now before Iban awakes and it's too late.

Sir Harry[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Good day.
  • Sir Harry: Watch your back, the undead are about here.

Sir Carl[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello Paladin.
  • Sir Carl: Take care down here, Evil things are abroad...

Talking to any after having killed them[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Sir Carl/Harry/Jerro: You again... die Zamorakian scum!

The Well[edit | edit source]

While I sense the soft beating of a
good heart I will not open.
Feed me three crests of the blessed
and the creatures remains,
Throw them to me as an offering...
a gift of hatred, a token.
Then finally rejoice as all goodness dies in my flames.

Deeper and Darker[edit | edit source]

  • Koftik: Traveller is that you?... my friend on a mission!
  • Player: Koftik, you're still here, you should leave.
  • Koftik: Leave? ...leave? ..this is my home now. Home with my lord, he talks to me, he's my friend.
  • Koftik seems to be in a weak state of mind.
  • Player: Koftik you really should leave these caverns.
  • Koftik: Not now, we're all the same down here. There's just you and those dwarfs left to be converted.
  • Player: Dwarfs?
  • Koftik: Foolish dwarfs, still believing that they can resist. No one resists Iban, go traveller. The dwarfs to the south, they're not safe in the south. We'll show them, go slay them m'lord. He'll be so proud, that's all I want.
  • Player: I'll pray for you.
Talk to Koftik again
  • Koftik: Nice job killing those Paladins. You're much closer to his side now. Perhaps you could kill tose dwarfs to the south...

The Only Ones Left[edit | edit source]

Niloof[edit | edit source]

  • Niloof: Back away! Back away! ...Wait. ...You're human!
  • Player: That's right, I'm on a quest for King Lathas. We need to find a way through these caverns.
  • Niloof: Ha ha, listen up. We came here as miners decades ago, completely unaware of the evil that lurked here. There's no way through, not while Iban still rules. He controls the gateway, the only way to the other side.
  • Player: What gateway?
  • Niloof: It once stood as the 'Well of Voyage'. A gateway to the West. Now Iban's moulded it into a pit of the damned, a portal to Zamorak's darkest realms. He sends his followers there, never to return. Only once Iban is destroyed can the well be restored.
  • Player: But how?
  • Niloof: If I knew, I would have slain him already. Seek out the Witch, his guide, his only confidante. Only she knows how to rid us of Iban. She lives on the platforms above, we dare not go there. Here, take some food to aid your journey.
  • Player: Thanks Niloof, take care.
  • Niloof: You too.

Talking to Niloof again

  • Player: Hello Niloof.
  • Niloof: So you still live, not many survive down here.
  • Player: As I can see.
  • Niloof: Don't stay too long traveller. Iban's calls will soon penetrate your delicate human mind. You'll also become one of his minions... You must go above and find the witch Kardia. She holds the secret to Iban's destruction.

Kamen[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hi there, you okay?
  • Kamen: Ooooh, my head ...I'm fried.
  • Player: What's wrong?
  • Kamen: Too much of this home brew my friend. We make it from plant roots, but it blows your head off. You don't wanna put it near any naked flames. Want some?
    • Player: Okay then.
      • Kamen: Here you go... Hic!
      • Player: Aaarrgghh!
      • The dwarf kindly gives you some food to help you recover from the ghastly drink.
      • Kamen: Ha ha! I warned you - it's strong stuff. Havea good meal; it may sober you up a bit.
    • Player: No thanks.
      • Kamen: Your losh... Hic! Well maybe a good meal? I could part with some food for a few coins.
        • Okay then.
          • Player: Okay then.
          • Kamen: 75 coins pleashe.
          • Player: Here you go.
          • Kamen: Thanks... Eat well.
        • No thanks.
          • Player: No thanks.
          • Kamen: Well come back any time.

Klank[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello my good man.
  • Klank: Good day to you outsider. I'm Klank, I'm the only blacksmith still alive down here. In fact we're the only ones that haven't yet turned. If you're not careful you'll become one of them too!
  • Player: Who?.. Iban's followers?
  • Klank: They're not followers, they're slaves, they're the Souless...
    • Player: What happened to them?
      • Klank: They were normal once, adventurers, treasure hunters. But men are weak, they couldn't ignore the voices. Now they all seem to think with one conscience... As if they're being controlled by one being...
      • Player: Iban?
      • Klank: Maybe... maybe Zamorak himself. Those who try and fight it Iban locks in cages, until their minds are too weak to resist. Eventually they all fall to his control...
    • Player: No wonder their breath was so bad!
      • Klank: You think this is funny... Eh?
      • Player: Not really, just trying to lighten up the conversation.
      • Klank: Hmph!

Searching the Tomb[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I'm not searching that without good reason!

A witch lacking her cat[edit | edit source]

Looking through the window

  • Kardia: Here kitty, kitty!

Trying to open the door

  • Kardia: Get away... Far from here!
  • Kardia: Ha ha... die mortal!

Destroying Iban[edit | edit source]

Back to Niloof[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Niloof, I found the Witch's house.
  • Niloof: And...?
  • If the player has the doll
    • Player: I found a strange doll.
    • Niloof: The witch's rag doll. This her be black magic traveller. Iban was magically conjured in that very item. His four elements of being are guarded somewhere in this cave... His shadow, his flesh, his conscience and his blood. If you can retrieve these, with the flask, you will be able to destroy Iban and resurrect the 'Well of Voyage'.
  • If the player has lost the doll
    • Player: I found a strange doll and a book, but I've lost the doll.
    • Niloof: Well it's a good job I found it.
  • Niloof: The witch's rag doll. This her be black magic traveller. Iban was magically conjured in that very item. His four elements of being are guarded somewhere in this cave... His shadow, his flesh, his conscience and his blood. If you can retrieve these, with the flask, you will be able to destroy Iban and resurrect the 'Well of Voyage'.

The Tomb of Iban[edit | edit source]

Interacting with the tomb

  • The lid won't open.
  • A voice from the Tomb: Leave me be!
  • Player: Aaarrgghh!

Using the dwarf brew on the tomb

  • You pour the strong alcohol over the tomb.

Lighting the tomb

  • The brew ignites!
  • You find the charred ashes of Iban's corpse.

The Blood from Kalrag[edit | edit source]

  • Kalrag slumps to the floor...
  • Poison flows from the corpse over the soil.
  • You smear the doll of Iban in the poisoned blood...
  • It smells horrific.

The Shadow of Iban[edit | edit source]

  • You attempt to open the chest...
  • The three amulets glow red in your backpack...
  • ... You place them on the chest and it opens.
  • Inside you find a strange dark liquid.
  • You pour the strange liquid over the doll...
  • ...It seeps into the cloth.

The Dove in the cage[edit | edit source]

  • The man seems to be entranced.
  • You search trhough the bottom of the cage...
  • ... and find Iban's dove.
  • The Soulless being bites into your arm...
  • Klank's gauntlets protect you.
  • You crumble the dove's skeleton into dust...
  • ...and rub it into the doll.

Klank's Gift[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hi Klank.
  • Klank: Traveller, I hear you plan to destroy Iban?
  • Player: That's right.
  • Klank: I have a gift for you, they may help. I crafted these long ago to protect myself from the teeth of the Souless, their bite is vicious. I haven't seen another pair which can withstand their jaws...
  • If the player has not received the gloves
    • Klank gives you a pair of gauntlets.
  • If the player has received the gloves
    • Klank: Oh... you have a pair of my gauntlets, look after them.
  • Player: Thanks Klank.
  • Klank: Good luck traveller, give Iban a slap for me!

The Disciples of Iban[edit | edit source]

Without the robes

  • Player: Hi.
  • Disciple of Iban: An impostor... Die, scum!

With the Zamorak robes

  • Player: Hi.
  • One of the following is said
    • Dialogue 1
      • Disciple of Iban: Iban is our father, our guide... Soon he will rule all life.

      • Disciple of Iban: Som Molica Anuil Demonte.
      • Player: Pardon ?
    • Dialogue 3
      • Disciple of Iban: Hail the great one, my lord Iban. I die for you again and again.
      • Player: Is that possible ?
      • Disciple of Iban: Under Iban anything is possible. Death is only the beginning.

The threats of Iban[edit | edit source]

These are yelled by Iban before entering, and during the fight

  • Iban: Begone from my temple!
  • Iban: Fool!
  • Iban: I'll swallow your soul!
  • Iban: You belong in the slave pits!
  • Iban: You will die, frail mortal.
  • Iban: You dare to defy me?!?
  • Iban: Who dares desecrate my temple!
  • Iban: I am the great Iban, I cannot die!

The Son of Zamorak[edit | edit source]

  • Iban seems to sense danger.
  • Iban: Who dares to bring the witch's magic into my temple?
  • His eyes fixate on you as he raises his arm...
  • Iban: An imposter dares desecrate this sacred place! ...Home to the only true child of Zamorak. Join the damned, mortal!
Throwing the doll down the Well of Voyage
  • Iban: What's happening? It's dark here... so dark! I'm falling into the dark, what have you done?
  • Iban falls to his knees clutching his throat...
  • Iban: Noooooooo!
  • Iban slumps motionless to the floor...
  • A roar comes from the pit of the damned.
  • The infamous Iban has finally gone to rest.
  • Amongst Iban's remains you find his staff and some runes.
  • Suddenly around you rocks crash to the floor as the ground begins to shake... The temple walls begin to collapse in... And you're thrown from the temple platform.

Back to Normal[edit | edit source]

  • Koftik: Traveller, where am I? I can't remember a thing!
  • Player: We were losing you to Iban's influence...
  • Koftik: What? ..of course, the voices, ...But they've stopped. What happened?
  • Player: Iban's dead, I destroyed him.
  • Koftik: You've done well, now we must inform the King. He'll have to send in some high mages to resurrect the Well of Voyage. Followe me, I'll lead you out.
  • Player: At last! I've had enough of caves.
  • Koftik leads you back up through the winding caverns... and back to the cave entrance.

A last talk with Koftik before meeting the King

  • Player: Thanks for getting me out Koftik.
  • Koftik: Always a pleasure squire. Have you informed the king about Iban?
  • Select an option
    • No, not yet.
      • Player: No, not yet.
      • Koftik: Traveller, this is no time to linger. The King must know that Iban is dead. This is a truly historical moment for Ardougne.
    • Yes, I've told him.
      • Player: Yes, I've told him.
      • Koftik: Good to hear, the sooner we find King Tyras the better.

A Job Well Done[edit | edit source]

  • King Lathas: The traveller returns; any news?
  • Player: Indeed, the quest is complete, Lathas. I have defeated Iban and his undead minions.
  • King Lathas: Incredible! You are a truly awesome warrior. Now we can begin to restore the Well of Voyage. Once our mages have re-summoned the well, I will send a band of troops led by yourself to head into west RuneScape and stop Tyras.
  • Player: I will be ready and waiting.
  • King Lathas: Your loyalty is appreciated, traveller.

Miscellaneous Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Creepy Chatbox Dialogue[edit | edit source]

(Potential dialogue that will appear in the chatbox from time to time during the quest)

  • Blood, pain and hate.
  • Death is only the beginning.
  • Kill, maim... murder.
  • I'll swallow your soul.
  • The power of the gods could be yours.
  • Hear me...
  • Iban will save you... He'll save us all.
  • I will release you...
  • Make them all pay!
  • Join us!
  • I see you adventurer... you can't hide.

Second well[edit | edit source]

While I sense the beating of a
good heart I will not open.
Feed me three crests of the blessed
and the creatures remains,
Throw them to me as an offering...
a gift of hatred, a token.
Then finally rejoice as all goodness
dies in my flames.

Tablets[edit | edit source]

There are various tablets scattered throughout the pass, which can be read.

By the entrance[edit | edit source]

All those who thirst for knowledge,
Bow down to the lord.
All you that crave eternal life,
Come and meet your god.
For no man nor beast
can cast a spell
against the wake of eternal hell.

By the chasm with the ropes[edit | edit source]

Most men do live in fear of death
that it might steal their soul.
Some work and pray,
to shield their life
from the ravages of the cold.
But only those who embrace the end
can truly make their life extend.
And when all hope begins to fade
look above you and use nature
as your aid.

Amidst the wall traps[edit | edit source]

And now our god has given us
one who is from our own.
A saviour who once sat upon
his father's glorious throne.
It is in your name that we
will lead the attack,
Iban, Son of Zamorak!

By the first well[edit | edit source]

Here lies the sacred well,
entrance to Iban's hell.
He blesses all his disciples keen.
'We bathe in pure evil' they yell.
The force of darkness is strong,
the wait for morning forever long.
If a light should break the night
the dark will rise to win the fight.

By Iban's tomb[edit | edit source]

Leave this battered corpse be,
for now he lives as spirit alone.
Turn and leave, run and flee
before the Soulless writhe and moan.
It is the soil that shall rise
to turn away the mites and flies.
Only as flesh becomes ash,
and wood becomes dust,
...will Iban's corpse embrace
nature's eternal lust.
