Simon Templeton is an unscrupulous archaeologist and treasure hunter located near Jaleustrophos (the Agility Pyramid), in the Kharidian desert, south of Nardah, and north-east of Sophanem.

Always interested in valuable items, Simon will buy the gold pyramid retrieved by players who have completed the agility course in the Agility Pyramid for 10000 coins, as well as any artefacts obtained during the Pyramid Plunder minigame in Sophanem. He will also buy them in noted form from players who have completed the easy Desert diary.

These are the amounts in coins he pays for each Pyramid Plunder item:

Type Ivory Pottery Stone Gold
Comb 50 x x x
Seal x x 150 750
Scarab x 75 175 1000
Statuette x 100 200 1250

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • His surname is likely a play on the word "Temple," due to him being found near a pyramid.
  • His name may also be directly borrowed from an alias of English voice actor Simon Templeman.
  • Mark Ogilvie stated that his appearance on Bargain Hunt in 2004 may have inspired the character of Simon Templeton.[1]
  • The guards in the Sophanem bank describe him as a thief.
  • If the player brings a Pharaoh's sceptre to him, he will claim it is a fake and will attempt to buy it from the player for 100 coins. The player character will assert that it is a real sceptre and will automatically refuse.
