Starting out[edit | edit source]

Before starting Eagle's Peak[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hi!
  • Charlie: Yes, er, welcome to the zoo! I'm afraid I'm kind of busy right now; what was it you wanted?
  • Ah, you sound like someone who needs a quest doing!
    • Player: Ah, you sound like someone who needs a quest doing!
    • If the player is below level 27 in Hunter:
      • Charlie: Well... maybe. How much do you know about hunting?
      • Player: Well I know a little bit...
      • Charlie: No, I could do with some help, but I'm afraid I need somebody with a little more experience.
      • (End of dialogue)
    • If the player is level 27 or above in Hunter:
      • Charlie: Actually, now that you come to mention it, you might be able to help me.
      • Charlie: A few weeks ago we had a delivery of a northern ferret. They're funny little creatures. Turns out they're tricksy little blighters too.
      • Charlie: Whilst we were unloading him from the cart he managed to escape his cage. What's more he gave the driver a nasty nip on the way out too.
      • Charlie: This was obviously a bit of a blow, you can't make a new attraction without any animals.
      • Charlie: We got in contact with one of our associates, a huntsman called Nickolaus, who agreed to capture us another.
      • Charlie: Funny thing is we haven't heard from him for some time now. I don't suppose you'd mind having a look for him?
      • Sure. Any idea where I should start looking?
        • Player: Sure. Any idea where I should start looking?
        • Charlie: Well the northern ferret is mostly found around the mountains just west of the Gnome Stronghold, so that would probably be as good a place as any to start looking.
        • Player: Okay, thanks.
        • (End of dialogue)
      • Sorry, I don't have the time.
        • Player: Sorry, I don't have the time.
        • Charlie: Oh well, I'm sure he'll be okay out there on his own.
        • (End of dialogue)
  • (Non-quest dialogue) Where did you get the animals from?

Nickolaus's camp[edit | edit source]

Picking up the bird book[edit | edit source]

  • Amongst the scattered books one in particular grabs your attention; there seems to be something poking out from between the pages.
  • (End of dialogue)

Opening the bird book[edit | edit source]

  • As you open the book something falls out from between the pages. It appears to be a small metal feather.
  • (Player receives Metal feather.)

Interacting with the Rocky outcrop[edit | edit source]

  • This area of rock doesn't quite seem to match the rest of the cliff face. There appears to be a thin vertical slot in the middle of the rock, with what appears to be a carving of a feather above it.
  • (End of dialogue)

Using the Metal feather on the Rocky outcrop[edit | edit source]

  • You place the metal feather into the groove in the cliff face. It seems to catch in some sort of mechanism.
  • Part of the cliff face swings outwards to reveal a tunnel heading into the mountain.
  • (End of dialogue)

Approaching Nickolaus across the chasm[edit | edit source]

  • Nickolaus: Hello? Er... excuse me?
  • Nickolaus: Hello? Er... excuse me?
  • Player: Hello, are you Nickolaus?
  • Nickolaus: Aha, I see my reputation precedes me. Yes, I am the renowned hunter and explorer Nickolaus. You've arrived just in time to witness a very momentous occasion, for I have just discovered the nest of a giant
  • Nickolaus: eagle. And a most amazing discovery it is too, even if I do say so myself.
  • The Ardougne zookeeper sent me to find you.
    • Player: The Ardougne zookeeper sent me to find you.
    • Nickolaus: Ah yes, he sent me to find a ferret. A trivial task, and one which pales in comparison compared to this momentous discovery. I'm sure he can wait.
    • Well if you gave me a ferret I could take it back for you.
    • So it's not that you're trapped then?
      • Player: So it's not that you're trapped then?
      • Nickolaus: Well I think trapped is quite a negative way of looking at it.
      • Nickolaus: I will admit however that getting out of here may be a little tricky. I did have a plan, but unfortunately it didn't involve being stuck in this nest.
      • Could I help at all?
        • Player: Could I help at all?
        • Nickolaus: Actually I believe you could. I need to somehow trick the eagles into thinking I'm one of them. Could you fashion some sort of disguise for me?
        • Player: What would that involve?
        • Nickolaus: Well, you could go and speak to the fancy dress shop owner in Varrock. He can make anything if you give him the right materials. In fact you should probably get a couple of disguises, one for each of us.
        • Player: That's a good idea. There are plenty of feathers around here. I'll see what I can do.
        • (End of dialogue)
      • Well it'll give you a lot of time to study the eagles
        • Player: Well it'll give you a lot of time to study the eagles.
        • Nickolaus: Very true, and certainly an opportunity I wouldn't want to miss.
        • Player: Well, I'll let you get on with your work then.
        • Nickolaus: It's always a pleasure to discuss my discoveries.
        • (End of dialogue)
  • Oh, but I'd come to rescue you.
    • Player: I've come to rescue you.
    • Nickolaus: How very kind of you. But Nickolaus Farrick never needs rescuing. I may apparently be trapped in a giant eagle's nest, but it is all a cunning ruse to put the beast at ease.
    • Aren't giant eagles mythical?
      • (Same as below)
    • Oh, so you're not really trapped?
      • Player: Oh, so you're not really trapped?
      • Nickolaus: Well I think trapped is quite a negative way of looking at it.
      • (Same as above)
  • Aren't giant eagles mythical?
    • Player: Aren't giant eagles mythical?
    • Nickolaus: Oh many people believe so, yes, but my relentless exploration has paid off once again, for I stand now in the nest of such a supposedly mythical creature.
    • Player: How did you manage to find the nest?
    • Nickolaus: Through unfaltering dedication, attention to detail, oh, and I suppose there's the minor point that I got carried here by an eagle.
    • Player: So in fact the eagle found you?
    • Nickolaus: So it might appear to an amateur yes, and, well, I may have been a little lucky, but it's still a remarkable discovery don't you think?
    • Amazing, but what do you intend to do now you've discovered it?
      • Player: Amazing, but what do you intend to do now you've discovered it?
      • Nickolaus: Well, there's all sorts to do. I need to observe its behaviour patterns and document its feeding habits. The discovery is only just the beginning you know.
      • I think you're trapped.
        • Player: I think you're trapped.
        • Nickolaus: Well I think trapped is quite a negative way of looking at it.
        • (Same as above)
      • Well, I'll let you get on with your work then.
        • Player: Well, I'll let you get on with your work then.
        • Nickolaus: It's always a pleasure to discuss my discoveries.
        • (End of dialogue)
    • Well, I'll let you get on with your work then.
      • Player: Well, I'll let you get on with your work then.
      • Nickolaus: It's always a pleasure to discuss my discoveries.
      • (End of dialogue)

Shouting at Nickolaus[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello Nickolaus, how are you getting on with your discoveries?
  • Nickolaus: Wonderfully, these giant eagles are simply magnificent creatures. I absolutely must see about getting one as a pet.
  • The Ardougne zookeeper sent me to find you.
    • (Same as above)
  • A pet? Are you crazy?
    • Player: A pet? Are you crazy?
    • Nickolaus: Quite possibly, quite possibly, but I haven't found a creature I couldn't tame yet.
    • (Shows initial options)
  • I've come to rescue you.
    • (Same as above)
  • Aren't giant eagles mythical?
    • (Same as above)

Visiting Nickolaus after agreeing to help him[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello Nickolaus, how are you getting on with your discoveries?
  • Nickolaus: Wonderfully thank you, although I am still having just a little trouble convincing them to let me leave.
  • Nickolaus: I don't suppose you've managed to get that disguise I asked for yet?
  • Player: I'm afraid not yet.
  • Nickolaus: Well like I said, the Varrock fancy dress shop is a good bet if you have the materials, and there are plenty of feathers around here.
  • Nickolaus: And while you're working on that, I'll get back to studying these incredible winged wonders.
  • (End of dialogue)

Getting a bird costume[edit | edit source]

  • Asyff: Now you look like someone who goes to a lot of fancy dress parties.
  • Player: Errr...what are you saying exactly?
  • Asyff: I'm just saying that perhaps you would like to peruse my selection of garments.
  • Asyff: Or, if that doesn't interest you, then maybe you have something else to offer? I'm always on the look out for interesting or unusual new materials.
  • (Non-quest dialogue) Okay, lets see what you've got then.
  • Well, specifically I'm after a couple of bird costumes.
    • Player: Well, specifically I'm after a couple of bird costumes.
    • Asyff: Ah, an inspired choice. What kind of bird were you thinking of?
    • Player: A giant eagle.
    • Asyff: Very interesting. Unfortunately I don't think I have any giant eagle costumes in stock at the moment.
    • Asyff: Of course if I had the materials I could make them for you.
    • Player: What materials would you need?
    • Asyff: Well, the main problem is that I'm fresh out of giant eagle feathers. I've been meaning to get onto my supplier about that for some time.
    • Player: Wait a second, you have a supplier? But I thought nobody knew where to find the nests?
    • Asyff: Well, there was some chap in desert clothing. He said his name was Ali. He assured me they were giant eagle feathers, although when I come to think about it they were suspiciously similar to chicken feathers.
    • Asyff: Anyway, you're probably looking at about 10 giant eagle feathers, assuming you can find a nest.
    • Asyff: I'd also need some swamp tar to hold things together and some yellow dye for the beaks. Everything else I can supply myself.
    • Player: I'll see what I can do.
    • (End of dialogue)
  • (Non-quest dialogue) I think I might just leave the perusing for now thanks.
  • (Non-quest dialogue) Can you make clothing suitable for hunting in?
  • (Non-quest dialogue) What sort of unusual materials did you have in mind?

Returning to Asyff without the materials[edit | edit source]

  • Asyff: Now you look like someone who goes to a lot of fancy dress parties.
  • Player: Errr...what are you saying exactly?
  • Asyff: I'm just saying that perhaps you would like to peruse my selection of garments.
  • Asyff: Or, if that doesn't interest you, then maybe you have something else to offer? I'm always on the look out for interesting or unusual new materials.
  • (Non-quest dialogue) Okay, lets see what you've got then.
  • What was it you needed to make those eagle costumes again?
    • Player: What was it you needed to make those eagle costumes again?
    • Asyff: I should be able to knock something up if you get me 10 of the right sort of feather. I'll also need some swamp tar and some yellow dye.
    • (End of dialogue)
  • (Non-quest dialogue) I think I might just leave the perusing for now thanks.
  • (Non-quest dialogue) Can you make clothing suitable for hunting in?
  • (Non-quest dialogue) What sort of unusual materials did you have in mind?

Returning to Asyff with the materials[edit | edit source]

  • Asyff: Or, if that doesn't interest you, then maybe you have something else to offer? I'm always on the look out for interesting or unusual new materials.
  • (Non-quest dialogue) Okay, lets see what you've got then.
  • I've got the feathers and materials you requested.
    • Player: I've got the feathers and materials you requested. Can you make those giant eagle costumes for me now?
    • Asyff: Certainly. It'll also cost you 50 gold pieces.
    • Okay, here are the materials. Eagle me up.
      • Player: Okay, here are the materials. Eagle me up.
      • Asyff: There we go; two eagle costumes. You should be the envy of the entire party with those.
      • Player: Thanks.
      • (End of dialogue)
    • On second thoughts, that's too expensive.
      • Player: On second thoughts, that's too expensive.
      • Asyff: Well, feel free to come back if you change your mind.
      • (End of dialogue)
  • (Non-quest dialogue) I think I might just leave the perusing for now thanks.
  • (Non-quest dialogue) Can you make clothing suitable for hunting in?
  • (Non-quest dialogue) What sort of unusual materials did you have in mind?

Bringing over the outfit to Nickolaus[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello Nickolaus, how are you getting on with your discoveries?
  • Nickolaus: Wonderfully thank you, although I am still having just a little trouble convincing them to let me leave.
  • Nickolaus: I don't suppose you've managed to get that disguise I asked for yet?
  • Player: Yes, I have one right here.
  • Nickolaus: Well bring it over here then. It's not much use to me over there.
  • (End of dialogue)

Silver feather[edit | edit source]

When inspecting the third rock[edit | edit source]

  • After carefully examining the rocks, you manage to pick up the mysterious trail again. The tracks aren't entirely unfamiliar, but they do seem somewhat larger than any you have seen before.
  • (End of dialogue)

When inspecting the opening[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Er...
  • A giant Kebbit jumps out of the cave.

Threatening the Kebbit[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hey, give me that!
  • The kebbit stares at you.
  • Taunt the kebbit.
    • Player: Give me that or... Er...
    • Player: Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!
    • The Kebbit goes into the opening while dropping the Silver feather.
  • Try something else.
    • (End of dialogue)

Bronze feather[edit | edit source]

When interacting with the pedestal[edit | edit source]

As you reach for the bronze feather, the netting on the ground shoots upwards, snatching the pedestal out of your reach.

Interacting with the Stone door[edit | edit source]

  • The door seems to be locked in place. There is an engraving of an eagle on the door. Three of the feathers illustrated in the engraving seem to be cut deeper than the others. It looks like they may once have contained some sort of decoration.
  • (End of dialogue)

When using any of the metal feathers on the door[edit | edit source]

  • You insert the metallic feather into one of the feather-shaped indentations in the engravings.
  • (End of dialogue)

When using the last remaining feather on the door[edit | edit source]

  • (Transcript missing. edit)

Saving Nickolaus[edit | edit source]

With eagle outfit[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello Nickolaus, how are you getting on with your discoveries?
  • Nickolaus: What's this, a young hatchling? Oh no, I hope it doesn't think I'm its dinner!
  • Player: No, Nickolaus, it's me! I'm just in disguise!
  • Nickolaus: You're sure...you're sure you're not going to eat me?
  • Player: No of course not. You sent me to get you an eagle outfit remember? So you could get out of this nest?
  • Nickolaus: Wow, that really is a very convincing disguise. Have you got one for me too?
  • Player: Yes, I have one right here.
  • You give Nickolaus a fake beak and an eagle feather cape.
  • Nickolaus: Excellent, now there is no way the eagle will be able to tell me from one of its own.
  • Nickolaus: Now you run off, and I'll meet you back down at the camp site.
  • (End of dialogue)

Without eagle outfit[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello Nickolaus, how are you getting on with your discoveries?
  • Nickolaus: Wonderfully thank you, although I am still having just a little trouble convincing them to let me leave.
  • Nickolaus: I don't suppose you've managed to get that disguise I asked for yet?
  • Player: Yes, I have one right here.
  • (Same as above)

Talking to Nickolaus again[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I've given you the disguise you needed, can we go now?
  • Nickolaus: Calm down. You must realise I can't leave just like that, this is far too amazing an opportunity. Just go down to the camp site and I'll meet you there.
  • (End of dialogue)

Talking to Nickolaus by the camp[edit | edit source]

  • Player: Hello again Nickolaus.
  • Nickolaus: Ah, hello again. Can I help at all?
  • Well I was originally sent to find you because of a ferret.
    • Player: Well I was originally sent to find you because of a ferret. Can you get me one at all?
    • Nickolaus: I'll do better than that. I'll teach you how to capture one yourself.
    • That sounds good to me.
      • Player: That sounds good to me. What do I do.
      • Nickolaus: Come with me and I'll show you.
      • Cutscene starts.
      • Player: Okay, so we've baited the trap with meat, now what?
      • Nickolaus: And now...we wait. Quietly!
      • Player: But what if I don't like waiting for things?
      • Nickolaus: Did I mention we wait quietly?
      • Nickolaus: Shhh, here comes something.
      • A ferret goes into the box trap.
      • Nickolaus: Ha ha, there you go! One gift-wrapped ferret ready for delivery.
      • Cutscene ends.
      • Nickolaus: See, it's all just a matter of patience.
      • Player: Great, thanks!
      • (End of dialogue)
    • I've not got the time right now.
      • Player: I've not got the time right now.
      • Nickolaus: Ah you don't get out of it that easily. When you've got the time come back and see me.
      • (End of dialogue)
  • I was just wondering how you got on with those eagles.
    • Player: I was just wondering how you got on with those eagles.
    • Nickolaus: Ah wonderfully. They're actually most cooperative creatures once they get used to you. With some rope I'm sure you could find some way to tame them... maybe even fly on them.
    • (End of dialogue)
  • No thanks. I was just dropping by.
    • Player: No thanks. I was just dropping by, wanted to make sure you hadn't been abducted again.
    • Nickolaus: No such luck I'm afraid, but I'm sure I'll make another discovery soon enough. I always seem to.
    • (End of dialogue)

Finishing up[edit | edit source]

  • Charlie: Ah, hello again. Have you had any luck finding a clue as to Nickolaus' whereabouts yet?
  • Player: Yes I have actually. He'd been abducted by giant eagles, but I managed to rescue him. He's now gotten back to his hunting.
  • Charlie: Giant eagles? What a strange notion. Well, regardless, if you've found him can you tell him to hurry up with that ferret.
  • Player: Even better, I have a ferret right here for you.
  • Charlie: You do? Ah, yes, wonderful, I never doubted you for a second. That'll make an excellent addition to the zoo.
  • Congratulations! Quest complete!
