After much deliberation, the Dorgeshuun Council has decided to open the doors of Dorgesh-Kaan to surface-dwellers. Those adventurers who have completed Death to the Dorgeshuun may now enter the secret city of the cave goblins.

The first visitor to the city was the Makeover Mage, hired by the council to make the city presentable for its grand opening. Despite their concern at the presence of outsiders, even the humble citizens have submitted themselves to the Makeover Mage's skills, and they're all pleased with the results.

Inside the city you will find a marketplace specialising in exotic foods - which, for the cave goblins, means anything from the surface! You can attempt to sell any foods you like to the gourmets in the market, but the cave goblins have fickle tastes and a keen eye for trends, so you will find the prices changing as they become more used to certain foods. Vary your stock and you can reap the financial rewards that await the cunning merchant.

Also in the city, adventurers will find that they can practice their Crafting and Firemaking by helping to maintain the city's unique magical lighting system. Any adventurers prepared to abuse the cave goblins' trust will find rich pickings for skilled thieves. There is also a magical inventor who has found a way of making the city easier for surface-dwellers to reach, so you should look for him if you want to visit often.

Beyond the city is another area of the Lumbridge Swamp Caves populated by familiar monsters, plus a new one: the mysterious molanisk. Only adventurers with enough skill and the right equipment will be able to entice them off the walls to fight. Some of the cave bugs in this area have also grown to enormous proportions, and might provide a better option for experienced Slayers who receive cave bugs as an assignment.

High above the molanisks' heads is the magical power generator that the cave goblins use to power their city. The generator is a remarkable piece of technology, but prone to breaking down, and those with remarkable Agility will be able to help out by locating spare parts. Smashed pylons and old cables form the most difficult Agility course in the game, and crossbow-fired grappling hooks will also be useful to make the most of it.

On top of all this, there are plenty of ordinary cave goblins to talk to, and if you search the city you will find your old friend Zanik wandering around. She is dying to see you again, so grab your lantern and make the journey to Dorgesh-Kaan!
