Standard dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello there.
  • Archaeologist: Hello again. You find any signs of that treasure yet?
  • Player: Well... not as such, but I unleashed a powerful demon from its tomb in return for unbelievable magical power.
  • Archaeologist: So... no gold then?
  • Player: Not as such, no. Sorry about that.
  • Archaeologist: Aw... I was hoping to go abroad on holiday this year.
  • Archaeologist: Maybe I'll go check out Karamja next, I hear there's treasure to be found there...
    • Tell me of your adventures
      • Player: I was wondering...
      • Player: As you are a big famous archaeologist, maybe you could spare the time to tell me a couple of tales of your exploits?
      • Archaeologist: Hey, sure thing kid! Well, this one time I found this spooky old temple in the middle of the jungle.
      • Archaeologist: The entrance was hidden from sight by all these vines and stuff, and it was full of zombies and crazy tribesmen and stuff.
      • Archaeologist: That wasn't the worst thing though! There were all these crazy traps that were hidden around the place too!
      • Archaeologist: Well anyway, I found the secret entrance, fought my way in through the zombies and tribesmen, and came to a big pedestal with a statue of solid gold sat on top of it!
      • Player: Solid gold, huh? Wow.
      • Archaeologist: That's right! It was a cunning trap though! As soon as I picked up the statue, a trapdoor opened up underneath me, and I fell into a darkened room, full of
      • Archaeologist: bones, and the biggest meanest tribesman you ever did see!
      • Archaeologist: Huge he was, and real ugly looking! He had this huge sword too, and he came running towards me screaming something in some language I didn't understand!
      • Player: What did you do?
      • Archaeologist: Well, while he was screaming at me, and swinging his sword around in front of me, trying to intimidate me before attacking, I cooly and calmly...
      • Player: Yes?
      • Archaeologist: All the while, knowing that if I died in this spot nobody would even know where I was...
      • Player: What then?
      • Archaeologist: I knew, if this tribesman killed me, that would be the end of Asgarnia Smith, and all of his treasure hunting...
      • Player: SO WHAT DID YOU DO?!?!
      • Archaeologist: Well, while he was screaming and waving his sword around, I stood behind a nearby stalactite, then shot him with my shortbow.
      • Archaeologist: And that was how I recovered the Golden Monkey of Tee-Ta-Toh.

    • Tell me how you became an Archaeologist
      • Player: So... How exactly did you get into this line of work anyway?
      • Player: It seems an odd choice of career for a man like yourself.
      • Archaeologist: Thinking of joining your pal Asgarnia in the wonderful world of treasure hun- um, archaeology, huh?
      • Archaeologist: Well, it all started the day I was fishing in catherby[sic], funnily enough.
      • Archaeologist: Ah yes, I remember it well... I was just sat there, hoping to catch a bass or two, when I made the most amazing discovery!
      • Archaeologist: In my fishing nets, I had found an ancient casket, marred and worn by centuries underwater!
      • Archaeologist: With trembling hands, I slowly and cautiously opened it, wondering what ancient secret may have been kept inside...
      • Archaeologist: What valuable heirloom may have been dredged up by my nets that had not decayed underwater long ago...
      • Archaeologist: And you know what I found inside?
      • Player: No, what?
      • Archaeologist: I found 320 coins! Just like that! Just by fishing I had found 320 coins! 320 coins! Can you believe it?
      • Player: Um... Yes, yes I can.
      • Archaeologist: Well, it might not seem much to us now kid, but back then, it was a revelation!
      • Archaeologist: Why waste my time fishing when there were secret treasures from long ago hidden around the world?
      • Archaeologist: I immediately applied to the Museum of Varrock as a field agent, and the rest is history!

    • Nice hat!
      • Player: Nice hat!
      • Archaeologist: Hey, thanks kid. Looking snazzy is an important part of being a treasure hunter!
      • (End of dialogue)
    • See you later...
      • Player: Well, I'll see you again sometime maybe. Sorry I couldn't get you any treasure...
      • Archaeologist: Ah, don't sweat it kid. I'll be honest with ya - I'm already rich many times over, and its more the kicks of being a treasure hunter I do it for than the actual cash!
