Starting out[edit | edit source]

Talking to Curator Haig Halen[edit | edit source]

  • Curator Haig Halen: Welcome to the museum of Varrock.
    • Have you any interesting news?
      • If players do not have the requirements to start the quest:
        • Curator Haig Halen: Well, firstly you'll need to do a bit of work around the museum, then maybe we can talk.
        • (End of dialogue)
      • If players have the requirements to start the quest:
        • Curator Haig Halen: Yes, we found a rather interesting island to the North of Morytania. We believe that it may be of archaeological significance.
        • Player: Oh? That sounds interesting.
        • Curator Haig Halen: Indeed. We are making the final preparations for our voyage, in fact, you may be just the person we are looking for... Assuming you've got the necessary qualifications, that is.
        • Player: Would I qualify then?
          • If players have not completed The Dig Site:
            • Curator Haig Halen: Unfortunately, you haven't passed your Earth Science exams so you aren't qualified to help us on the dig. If you're interested, visit the Exam Centre on the Dig Site to the east and talk to the examiners there.
            • (End of dialogue)
          • If players do not have enough Kudos:
            • Curator Haig Halen: Unfortunately, you haven't earned enough kudos yet to help us on the dig. If you're interested in helping us out and getting that Kudos, simply help out around the Museum. You can find out more at the information
            • Curator Haig Halen: booth.
            • (End of dialogue)
          • If players meet all the requirements:
            • Curator Haig Halen: Yes indeed. You've helped us a great deal around the Museum and you have the necessary qualifications from the Earth Sciences exams.
            • Curator Haig Halen: I have received word from the digsite that the canal has been constructed, and the barge is awaiting some final touches.
            • Curator Haig Halen: The site foreman requested the aid of a qualified and experienced adventurer, and I believe you would be a perfect fit for the role.
              • Sign me up!
                • Player: Sign me up!
                • Curator Haig Halen: That's great to hear. You should speak to the foreman at the digsite canal, I'll make sure he knows to expect you.
                • (End of dialogue)
              • I'm afraid I'm far too busy right now.
                • <missing>
  • Do you know where I could find any treasure?
      • Non-quest dialogue
    • How do I get a medallion?
      • Non-quest dialogue

The finishing touches[edit | edit source]

Talking to the barge foreman[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello, the curator said you could use some assistance here?
  • Barge foreman: Ah yes, it's about time! We are in the final stages of preparation, there are a few minor adjustments I'd like to make to the barge before we get the crew ready.
  • Player: What can I do to help?
  • Barge foreman: Well, we've learned from our previous attempts that we need a sturdier type of wood to keep the barge afloat.
  • Barge foreman: However, magic logs had... well... peculiar side effects.
  • Barge foreman: Luckily, a new high-grade wood was discovered in distant Western lands, it would make the perfect material for the areas of the barge we need to reinforce.
  • Player: So you'd like me to bring you some of this wood?
  • Barge foreman: It's not quite that simple, I'm afraid. You'll have to talk to the sawmill operator at the Varrock sawmill to the North West, he will let you know what has to be done.
  • Player: Okay, I'll talk to the sawmill operator.
  • (End of dialogue)

Talking to the sawmill operator[edit | edit source]

  • Sawmill operator: Do you want me to make some planks for you? Or would you be interested in some other housing supplies?
    • Planks please!
      • Non-quest dialogue
    • What kind of planks can you make?
      • Non-quest dialogue
    • Can I buy some housing supplies?
      • Non-quest dialogue
    • I'm here on behalf of the museum archaeological team.
      • Player: I'm here on behalf of the museum archaeological team.
      • Sawmill operator: Ah, I was wondering when they would finally send over a member of the expedition.
      • Player: So what do you need me to do?
      • Sawmill operator: None of the lumber here is appropriate for the task at hand, however, I've arranged a fairly generous deal between myself and the sawmill over in the Hosidius Woodcutting guild.
      • Player: Sounds fairly straight forward.
      • Sawmill operator: That's good to hear. Once the document has been signed, bring it back to me and we'll get those supplies sent over to the foreman.
      • Player: Okay, bye.
      • (End of dialogue)
    • Nothing, thanks
      • Non-quest dialogue

Talking to Berry[edit | edit source]

  • If players do not have the requirements to enter the Woodcutting Guild:
    • Berry: Hello there, what business do you have with the Woodcutting guild?
    • Player: I have a proposal for your guild's sawmill, it is from the Varrock sawmill.
    • Berry: Ah yes, our sawmill operator was expecting you. Do you have the proposal with you?
    • Player: Yes, I have it here.
    • Berry: Excellent, hand it over and I'll sign it on behalf of the guild if everything looks in order.
    • You hand over the proposal to Berry, he glosses over it before signing and returning the document.
    • Berry: There you go, we'll ship the redwood planks over to Varrock sawmill immediately.
    • Player: Redwood planks eh? Those would certainly make for an interesting building material...
    • Player: Thanks, bye.
    • (End of dialogue)
  • If players have the requirements to enter the Woodcutting Guild:
    • Berry: Welcome to the woodcutting guild, adventurer.
    • (End of dialogue)

Talking to Berry again[edit | edit source]

  • Berry: Hello there, what business do you have with the Woodcutting guild?
  • Player: I'm not too sure what I'm supposed to be doing with this document.
  • Berry: Everything has been signed, so you just need to take it back to the sawmill operator at the Varrock sawmill.
  • Player: Thanks.
  • (End of dialogue)

      • Sawmill operator: How can I help?
      • Player: The sawmill operator in Varrock said you were in possession of some special planks?
      • Sawmill operator: Ah yes, it was no easy feat, but I've managed to make some very high quality lumber out of the logs from the redwoods up there.
      • Player: Redwood planks?
      • Sawmill operator: Precisely.
      • Player: Could they be used to build anything else?
      • Sawmill operator: Well, it certainly makes for an interesting material, I can imagine it being used for all sorts in the future...
      • Sawmill operator: Anyway, do you have the proposed deal on you? The sooner we set up our agreement the sooner we can ship these materials.
      • Player: Yes, I have it here.
      • Sawmill operator: Excellent, hand it over and I'll just make sure everything looks in order.
    • You hand over the proposal, the sawmill operator glances over it before signing and returning the document.
      • Sawmill operator: There you go. We'll ship the materials over to the Varrock sawmill immediately.
      • Player: Thanks, bye.

The cursed voyage[edit | edit source]

Talking to the barge foreman[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Barge foreman: The supplies arrived earlier, my men have reinforced the barge using those redwood planks. Thanks for your help, [player name].
  • Player: No problem. Is there anything else you need?
  • Barge foreman: The barge is prepared for the voyage, so I'm just about done here.
  • Barge foreman: Now that the barge is ready, you should probably talk to the lead navigator on board.
  • Player: There doesn't seem to be a gangplank... How am I meant to get on board?
  • Barge foreman: The barge guard will happily help you on board. Just give him a prod!

Talking to the barge guard[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Barge guard: Hello there, can I help you?
    • Can I go onto the barge?
      • Player: Can I go onto the barge?
      • Barge guard: Absolutely, the navigators are waiting for you on board!
      • (End of dialogue)
    • No, thanks.

Talking to the Lead Navigator[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Lead Navigator: Hello, I'm the lead navigator on the expedition, I take it you're here to help us out?
    • Yep, that would be me.
      • Player: Yep, that would be me.
      • Lead Navigator: Good, because we're going to need your help if we're ever going out on this voyage.
      • Player: What's wrong?
      • Lead Navigator: Well, you may be aware of the previous attempts at this expedition?
        • No, what happened?
          • Player: No, what happened?
          • Lead Navigator: Well, the first barge had some serious design flaws... it didn't float.
          • Lead Navigator: The second barge suffered from 'feature creep'. Senior museum staff stuck their oar in and added unnecessary features: 'go-faster stripes', a portable fossil centrifuge and a walk-on mini-museum.
          • Lead Navigator: Needless to say, it had... buoyancy issues.
          • Lead Navigator: The third barge made it out to sea, but a special sealant was used that attracted sea monsters. They didn't make it very far.
          • Lead Navigator: The fourth also used a special sealant, this one attracted icebergs.
          • Lead Navigator: The fifth barge crashed into the sixth.
          • Lead Navigator: We lost the seventh one.
          • Lead Navigator: The eigth barge is still here, we think. An accident involving a magical explosion and some talking anchovies means that it is now believed to reside 12 seconds out of phase.
          • Lead Navigator: The ninth version was built using magic logs. The barge gained some form of rudimentary sentience. It developed serious depression and ran itself aground near Crandor.
          • Lead Navigator: So, now do you understand why we need your help?
          • (Same as below)
        • I'm aware, no need to tell me about them.
          • Lead Navigator: So, now do you understand why we need your help?
          • Player: Um... Not really.
          • Lead Navigator: The voyage is clearly cursed!
          • Player: Oh... right...
          • Lead Navigator: Well, [player name], whether you believe it or not, know that none of my men will be going on this expedition unless you can ensure our safety from the curse.
          • Player: How am I supposed to do that?
          • Lead Navigator: We're not the first crew to face a cursed voyage, perhaps someone who has experienced one before can give you some advice.
          • Player: Any idea where I'd be able to find someone like that?
          • Lead Navigator: I've heard all kinds of stories at the Rusty Anchor Inn in Port Sarim. I'm sure you'll be able to find out something about cursed voyages if you ask around the folks there.
          • Player: Okay, I'll see what I can learn.
    • Maybe later.

Talking to bar patrons[edit | edit source]

  • Jack Seagull: Arrr, matey!
    • What are you doing here?
      • Non-quest dialogue
    • Ever made any cursed voyages?
      • Jack Seagull: Aye! I've sailed many a treacherous journey in my time! What it be to ye?
      • Player: I'm meant to be setting sail on a voyage of my own, but the crew won't go without some sort of 'protection'. I was hoping someone here would know of a way to avoid falling victim to the so-called curse.
      • Longbow Ben: There be nothing 'so-called' about curses laddie/lassie!
      • Jack Seagull: Aye, 'tis a matter we take very seriously in our profession. Luckily, there are ways ye can avoid a curse.
      • Player: Great! What do I need to do?
      • Jack Seagull: Well that all depends on the nature of yer travels!
      • Player: We are heading out on an expedition to an ancient, previously unexplored, island for Varrock museum.
      • Jack Seagull: The museum aye? Ye be diggin' up bones and them sorts then?
      • Player: Well... I guess so.
      • Jack Seagull: Then the way I be seein' it, ye be needin' a lucky charm to do with that!
      • Player: A lucky charm to do with digging up bones?
      • Jack Seagull: Aye! I hear folk talking of an odd old man up in the quarry near Paterdomus who sounds as if he might deal in those sorts of things.
      • Ahab: Bahahahaha! This poor young laddie/lassie is sailing a cursed voyage and ye be suggestin' lucky charms?!
      • Jack Seagull: What ye be gettin' at, Ahab?
      • Ahab: Listen here, laddie. There be no way out of a cursed voyage, however, there are ways one can make it through unscathed...
      • Jack Seagull: Aye, just like ye and yer leg, Ahab? Ahahaha!
      • Ahab: Take no notice of him. I just thought it be worth ye knowing all the options is all.
      • Player: Perhaps. What would I need to do to make it through the voyage 'unscathed'?
      • Ahab: Folk be tellin' tales of a special potion... A 'potion of sealegs' they be callin' it.
      • Player: A potion of sealegs?
      • Ahab: Aye. The crew simply drink the potion before they be settin' sail, and the next thing they know, they be safely at their destination!
      • Jack Seagull: Arrr! Magical potions? Be soundin' like nonsense to me!
      • Player: Well, I guess I'll talk to the navigators and offer both up to the crew to see which they'd prefer before I go gathering them up! Thanks guys!
      • (End of dialogue)
    • Have you got any quests I could do?
      • Non-quest dialogue

Returning to the navigators[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Lead Navigator: Welcome back, [player name]. Any luck finding a way for us to make it through this cursed voyage?
  • Player: Yes, I've got two options, actually.
  • Lead Navigator: Interesting, let's hear them.
  • Player: The first is to use a good luck charm, something related to our expedition - a lucky bone from an odd old man in Paterdomus.
  • Player: The second is a potion of sealegs, the crew would have to drink it at the start of the voyage.
  • Lead Navigator: Well I'm certainly not putting my crew's life in the hands of some lucky charm! I think I'll go with the potion.
  • Junior Navigator: I think the lucky charm sounds like a good idea...
  • Lead Navigator: Oh quiet, boy - you shouldn't believe in such nonsense.
  • Player: It's okay, I can get both.
  • Lead Navigator: Fine by me, as long as you get that potion.
  • Junior Navigator: Thanks, mister/miss!
  • Lead Navigator: The apothecary in Varrock might be able to help you out with that potion of sealegs, I'd start by paying him a visit.
  • Player: Okay, I'll be back once I've got the potion of sealegs and the lucky charm.
  • (End of dialogue)

      • Apothecary: Aha! Don't tell me... You want a potion of sealegs?
      • Player: Yes, actually. What's so funny?
      • Apothecary: You'd be amazed at the nonsense these pirates believe! I'll let you in on a little secret, there is no magical potion to save you from the sea's wrath!
      • Player: Then what have you been giving those sailors?
      • Apothecary: A simple herbal remedy containing vodka. Lots of vodka.
      • Apothecary: Look, if you bring me the ingredients, I'll make you the potion. It's not going to save your crew from sea curses, of course, but it'll certainly put their fears to rest!
      • Player: Well I don't really have a choice here, I need that potion. What ingredients do you need?
      • Apothecary: Two bottles of vodka and an unfinished marrentill potion, I already have everything else I require.
      • Player: Okay, I'll be back soon.

      • If the player has the ingredients:
        • Player: Yep, I've got them here.
        • Apothecary: Excellent. Hand them over and I'll mix the potion.
        • You hand the apothecary the ingredients. He adds a few herbs of his own before handing back the foul-smelling concoction.

Talking to the Odd Old Man[edit | edit source]

  • Talk about lucky charms.
    • Player: Hi, I was told you might be able to help me get a lucky charm?

    • Sack: Mumblemumblemumble.
    • Odd Old Man: Why would you be looking for such an item?
      • I'm working with the museum.
        • Player: I'm working with the museum.
        • Odd Old Man: Is that so...
        • Sack: Mumblemumble. Mumble.
        • Odd Old Man: Do you take me for a fool? As if someone working for the museum would be looking for something like that!
        • Player: Actually, that's not what I meant...
        • Odd Old Man: Oh really... so what would it be then?
        • (Shows other options)

        • Player: That's great, what would you like for it?
        • Sack: Mumblemumble.
        • Odd Old Man: Absolutely nothing! You can have it free of charge...
        • Odd Old Man: Just be sure to bring me back any interesting bones you find on that island.
        • Player: Err... Sure.
        • The Odd Old Man hands you a small object made out of bone.
        • Player: Thanks!
        • (End of dialogue)

The "cursed" voyage[edit | edit source]

Returning to the navigators again[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello.
  • Lead Navigator: Any luck getting your hands on that potion of sealegs?
  • Player: Yes, I have it here.
  • Lead Navigator: Excellent work, [player name]! I'm sure the crew will be very glad to hear about this.
  • Lead Navigator: Looks like we've got everything we need to set off!
  • Lead Navigator: We're ready to go when you are, [player name].
    • I'm ready, let's go.
      • It doesn't take long for the potion to take effect, causing them to pass out.
      • Junior Navigator: What did your potion do to the crew?!
      • Player: Well, the apothecary figured they can't be afraid if they're unconcious...
      • Junior Navigator: But then who's going to get us to the island?
      • Player: Aren't you meant to be a navigator?
      • Junior Navigator: Yes, a JUNIOR navigator! I've never navigated open waters like this!
      • Player: What are we going to do?
      • Junior Navigator: Okay... Let me think...
      • Junior Navigator: You'll need to operate the barge controls, I'll let you know if we're headed in the right direction.
      • Junior Navigator: You'll have to fight against the winds to keep the bearing North, you can do that by steering the barge.
      • Junior Navigator: You can increase or decrease our speed by adjusting the sails. You might find keeping the bearing North easier at slower speeds, but it will take longer to reach the island.
      • Junior Navigator: If we're headed in the wrong direction for too long I'll take us back to the digsite. Let me know if you want me to go back over these instructions at any point.
      • (End of dialogue)
    • I need to do something first.
      • Player: I need to do something first.
      • Lead Navigator: Okay, see you soon.
      • (End of dialogue)

If the player fails the voyage[edit | edit source]

Finishing up[edit | edit source]

  • Congratulations! Quest complete!
  • Junior Navigator: Good work, [player name], you got us here in one piece!
  • Junior Navigator: I suppose you'll want to start exploring the island as soon as possible.
  • Junior Navigator: Here, take this journal so you can keep track of your discoveries. Base camp is being set up on shore, let me know if you'd like to head there.
