Standard dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • Death: Hello mortal. Have you come to retrieve something you lost when you died?
    • How does that work?
      • Player: How does that work?
      • Death: When you die, you often drop things you were carrying. In most cases, a gravestone appears near where you died, and your items can be retrieved there.
      • Death: However, gravestones do not last for long. When your gravestone collapses, your items come here, to me. I can return them to you - though I charge a fee for my services.
      • Death: Aside from that, if you bring me your unwanted possessions, and sacrifice them into my Coffer here, I'll count their value against any future fees I charge you.
      • Death: I don't accept just any junk, but I'll try to give you a good price for anything decent.
      • Death: So do you need to retrieve something you lost when you died?
      • (Shows other options)
    • What is this place?
      • Player: What is this place?
      • Death: As you should be able to see, I am Death. The Grim Reaper. The Inexorable One. The Inescapable Grasp of Mortal Destiny. And this is my little office. Nice, isn't it?
        • It's lovely.
          • Player: It's lovely.
          • Death: Thank you. I feel the colour scheme suits my style. Now, can I help you retrieve something you lost when you died?
          • (End of dialogue)
        • Your decorations leave a bit to be desired.
          • Player: Your decorations leave a bit to be desired.
          • Death: Sometimes it's hard to care for beauty when one's very existence is just seen as a curse upon the world. Now, do you actually want to retrieve something from me?
          • (End of dialogue)
    • Yes, have you got anything for me?
      • Player: Yes, have you got anything for me?
      • Death's Office Item Retrieval interface opens.
    • Can I choose a different-looking gravestone?
      • Player: Can I choose a different-looking gravestone?
      • The player is then given a choice between the basic or angel gravestone, which are free and 200k coins respectively.
        • If the player chooses the angel gravestone without 200,000 coins:
          • Death: You haven't got 200,000 coins to pay for that. I can take coins from your inventory, or from my Coffer.
            • Can I choose a different-looking gravestone?
              • Player: Can I choose a different-looking gravestone?
              • Same as above
            • Actually, never mind.
              • Player: Actually, never mind.
              • (End of dialogue)
        • If the player chooses the angel gravestone with 200,000 coins:
          • Death: Most people won't see your grave, by the way. It appears to you, but it aims to be invisible to everyone else. Are you sure you want to buy a cosmetic override for it?
            • Yes, I understand other people won't often see it.
              • Player: Yes, I understand other people won't often see it.
              • Your gravestone is now the Angel of Death.
              • Death: It is not for me to judge how people spend their money.
              • (End of dialogue)
            • No thanks, it's not worth it.
              • Player: No thanks, it's not worth it.
              • Death: It is not for me to judge how people spend their money.
              • (End of dialogue)
        • If the player chooses the basic gravestone while already having the angel gravestone:
          • Death: Do you really want to switch to the basic gravestone? I'm not offering to give back the fee you paid earlier.
            • Yes, I want the basic gravestone.
              • Player: Yes, I want the basic gravestone.
              • Your gravestone is now the basic type.
              • (End of dialogue)
            • Actually, never mind.
              • Player: Actually, never mind.
              • (End of dialogue)
        • If the player chooses the basic gravestone while already having the basic gravestone:
          • Death: You've already got the basic gravestone.
            • Can I choose a different-looking gravestone?
              • Player: Can I choose a different-looking gravestone?
              • Same as above
            • Actually, never mind.
              • Player: Actually, never mind.
              • (End of dialogue)
    • Not just now, thanks.
      • Player: Not just now, thanks.
      • Death: Really? There isn't much else for you to do here. But you know your business.
      • (End of dialogue)

Upon losing any items while dying for the first time[edit | edit source]

  • Death: So, mortal... you have died, as all mortals do. As you have suffered the loss of some items on this occasion, I have brought you here to explain for you how that works.
  • Player: I lost items? Can I get them back?
  • Death: Let me explain... Across most of the land of Gielinor, when you die, some of the items you're carrying are dropped.
  • A gravestone appears on the ground near where you died. You can go there and retrieve your items by clicking on it.
  • Your gravestone would be marked with an arrow to help to spot it. A grave icon appears on the world map too, if your grave is in a mapped area.
  • Gravestones charge a small fee to return especially valuable items, but most things are returned free of charge. Conveniently, a gravestone can take its fee straight from your bank.
  • A gravestone does not last forever. After about 15 minutes, a gravestone will collapse. Anything in it will be sent here, to me.
  • Death: I will look after such items, without a time limit. However, I do charge more for my services. It would be cheaper to retrieve them from the gravestone directly, if you can reach it in time.
    • Tell me about gravestones again.
      • Player: Tell me about gravestones again.
      • Death: Gladly... Across most of the land of Gielinor, when you die, some of the items you're carrying are dropped.
      • Same as above
    • How do I pay a gravestone fee?
      • Player: How do I pay a gravestone fee?
      • Death: Cash is always acceptable. Also, a gravestone can take it directly from you bank, in case you didn't have enough with you.
      • Death: Besides that, take a look at my Coffer here. You can bring your unwanted possessions, and sacrifice them into my Coffer. I'll count their value against any future gravestone fees you're charged.
      • Death's Coffer won't accept items worth less than 10,000 coins per item - Death doesn't want cheap junk! But more valuable items can be sacrificed to pay down future reclamation fees.
      • (Shows previous options)
    • How long do I have to return to my gravestone?
      • Player: How long do I have to return to my gravestone?
      • A gravestone lasts for at least 15 minutes before it collapses. However, that timer pauses if you become inactive, in case you have lost your connection to the world.
      • A timer on your head-up display shows the remaining time before your gravestone will collapse.
      • (Shows previous options)
    • How do I know what will happen to my items when I die?
      • Player: How do I know what will happen to my items when I die?
      • Death: There is a menu to predict these things for you. Take a look at your Worn Items side-panel...
      • The Items Kept on Death menu tells you roughly what your items will do when you next die, including estimating gravestone fees.
      • (Shows previous options)
    • I think I'm done here.
      • Player: I think I'm done here.
      • Death: Very well. Once you pass through my portal, you will have 15 minutes to reach your gravestone.
      • (End of dialogue)
