Charlie the Tramp (or Charles E. Trampin') is a tramp that tells the player about the Black Arm Gang headquarters during the Shield of Arrav quest. He is found right next to the southern entrance to Varrock, at the end of the alleyway to the Black Arm Gang's headquarters. If players choose to do so they may donate a coin or two to him.

Treasure Trails[edit | edit source]

  • Charlie is the solution to the medium anagram clue: ARMCHAIR THE PELT. The solution to the challenge scroll question is 0.
  • Charlie is the solution to the beginner cryptic clue: Talk to Charlie the Tramp in Varrock. He'll give you one of the tasks listed below.

Charlie's clues[edit | edit source]

A beginner clue scroll will sometimes instruct the player to talk to Charlie. Once there, Charlie will assign the player a short skilling task. After completing the task, the player can return to Charlie in order to continue the Treasure Trail.

When first received Charlie the Tramp clues will say "Talk to Charlie the Tramp in Varrock." Charlie assigns a task to the player similar in form to the tasks assigned by Sherlock for master and elite clues. For the task to count as completed, the player needs to hold the clue scroll while performing the action, otherwise it will not count. When the task is completed, a notification is sent to the chat box, and the text of the clue scroll changes.
