What?1,101
Hello!1,099
Oh, just fine, just fine! This gold is certainly creating a steady flow of income for me! After the company takes some of the cut, of course.1,048
It's a very special rock!1,037
It's not a wall! It's a rock!1,036
Oh, for Guthix' sake, it's perfectly simple! See, that rock over there, it's impenetrable!1,033
Of course I have, I'm holding this rune pickaxe, aren't I? We've been trying to mine through it for years!1,032
Well, I'm the only one left... all the others gave up. Said it wasn't worth their while anymore. Wouldn't have a good return profit on their time investment.1,029
Until we had a look further down the stream, around the rock... no, there's no treasure there, just a dead end.1,026
The whole cave was shaking! What happened in there?993
What, you actually killed him?993
Wonderful! These schematics look simple enough... are you ready for your quick trip through the rock then?989
Probably banished it to some hellish realm or other.981
Of course, of course! Whenever you want to go back in there, let me know... just don't forget to bring your helmet!977
Right, sitting comfortably?976
Excellent, excellent, I'll get the cannon ready to fire then!976
Just think of all that gold!976
No no, thank you! After all these years, the riddle of the rock has finally been cracked!973
Because obviously there are vast deposits of minerals inside the rock! And if not, I want to harness the extreme hardness of the rock itself!950
Welcome aboard then!939
Ah, such enthusiasm! Okay, here we go, let me have a look at those schematics and we'll get started.918
Yes, just to see what's inside... to see if all that gold is really embedded inside it.834
No, but then we'll never know until we've tried it, right?834
Of course, just a second, let me adjust my cannon again.820
What? What? Tell me!802
A what?799
Gold? Did you say gold?795
Gold! I knew it! I struck gold! I'm set for life!792
Yes yes, I heard you the first time.788
Yes yes, well, get going now, why don't you? I'll guard the cannon while you're away.758
No, it has to be a helmet made out of solid gold. Gold plated helmets contain so little actual gold, it'd be a bit dangerous.753
I don't really know how, actually. Never been much of an engineer.751
That's it, yes! Here, I have one part of the schematics, sent to me by some prankster dwarf, I don't even remember his name. You'll have to find the rest on your own.751
Well, it's not so simple... like I said, I need to make some modifications to my cannon. They're not really designed to fire humans, you know.750
That... that... that's an amazing looking cannonball!741
But in the mean time, there's plenty of gold for me!733
Don't be silly now. It's just a rock... just a rock with lots of gold in it!732
Very simple. I'll have to make a few modifications to my cannon so that it can fire a human, and you'll need a golden helmet of course.729
Why, I'll just shoot you through it so you can have a look, won't I?728
The only problem is that I have run out of ideas on how to do it.728
I don't believe it! All this time, I've been spending all my gold on opening the rock... I could've just thrown it at it!726
No, it seemed more like it... gave way for a second... That's interesting...726
Did... did... did you see that?725
It breaks my heart to ruin such a fine piece of crafting, but it's your gold... Alright, let's load it up then.722
He'll be back, but not for a few thousand years, I'm sure.721
And here, have this rune pickaxe as well, I can just use a normal one now anyway.712
At first we thought there might be a huge treasure behind the rock, you see.711
Are you sure you want me to fire it at the rock? It's going to make a nasty dent in it. In the cannonball that is.635
Well, let's see...614
Apart from coating the rock with soot? Not really, no.600
I made this adamantite cannonball, you see! Cost me quite a pile of coins too!590
Well, yes, it did... when it bounced back onto the ground it did.584
Perhaps a young adventurer like you is willing to help out an old dwarf like me? Want to find out what's inside the rock?574
Might want to pick up that cannonball again while you're at it!574
Now tell me, how do I break open the rock?566
Well, we're not very much closer to a solution then, are we?564
What's left of it anyway...563
Then I'll fire you at the rock so you can do a little reconnaissance. Don't worry, you should land safely on the other side of the rock.562
I want you to find out some more information on the rock.562
I don't know! Wish I knew!555
I'll guard my cannon and fire more cannonballs at it, of course! Wish I had your job, mine's a tough one!550
Unless you want to die when I shoot you at the rock?546
My legs are too old and worn to do much running around anymore, I'm afraid.546
Oh, and you'll also need a golden helmet of course. Would hurt quite a bit otherwise.543
Oh, why so difficult?542
If I had the right schematics for it, I could probably work with that. But I don't.538
Well, then I had an even more clever idea!511
No, it wasn't. Didn't do anything! Nothing at all!508
At one time, we had a hundred dwarves in here, all picking away at the rock. Didn't do a thing.507
They're made out of granite! I don't have enough money left to make granite cannonballs though. But see!506
Did you see? Did you?501
That's because there wasn't anything to see! Even granite doesn't do anything to it!496
Don't be silly, I'm sure there must be some known material that will affect it.496
You got it!495
Haha, you want me to make a golden cannonball?495
Hmm, I suppose you have a point there.492
You know that apart from being heavy it's also very soft, don't you? It'd be a pointless waste!454
I was able to borrow a cannon from the Black Guard, my son was able to pull some strings you know.450
Of course, steel cannonballs didn't make a dent. But then ol' Donnie had a clever idea.432
But we have to get some better understanding of what this thing actually is. Maybe then we can find a way to break it open.421
Then there was the time when we set fire to this whole section of the cave. What a smell that made!412
Well, off you go now! Start running, start talking!411
I put an even bigger pile of coins together to get some rune cannonballs! Good idea, right?403
Tell you what, if you make a golden cannonball and give it to me, I'll fire it at the rock.402
Look, try the city, further down the stream here. There's bound to be someone there who knows something. If you still can't find anyone, go to the librarian, he knows a lot.399
Latest thing I've tried are these boots.386
No, but that's where you come in!277
So are you ready to have another go in the rock?186
Well, go ahead and wear your helmet! Won't protect your head if it's not on your head!172
Okay, here we go, hold on to your helmet!167
Another cannon? How will that help?149
I'm guarding the cannon. Won't do us much good if it were stolen, would it?147
So, tell me! What did you see inside! Is there any gold in there?146
Haha, wonderful!146
Ran into him? How do you mean?143
And this spirit you speak of? Was it guarding the gold?142
Well, if it is, that must mean you must kill it! Simple!142
No, no, what we need is a different material of cannonballs. The hardest, toughest you can find.133
You need to wear that golden helmet... unless you want to crack open your skull on the rock.96
Why, I'm Dondakan, of course!93
What, you mean these granite boots?89
Haha, I bet you would, I bet you would!86
But I no longer need the money, this rock is generating plenty!84
Besides, I'm rather fond of them now... best boots I ever had!77
No, I won't sell them.72
Okay, here we go, let me have a look at those schematics and we'll get started.71
No!71
Well...70
How much gold would you be willing to pay for it? Not that I'm selling my boots, mind, I'm just curious.70
A book? How's a book going to help? What's in it?70
That's not funny, human! Leave me alone now!68
My eyesight isn't what it used to be... so I'll mind the cannon while you go and read your book, okay?66
But we're so close to all that gold!65
I don't want anything from you right now.57
Not a clue! I don't even know how many parts there are. It's probably best to ask any dwarven engineers that you might know.48
Cozy? No, not really, it's damp and cold!47
Then stop shouting!46
No complaining now, run along!41
Go on then... leave an old dwarf to his work.37
I still need those schematics to modify my cannon. It doesn't normally fire humans, you know.36
And it could be that someone in the mines or the city here knows where this part came from. Didn't you talk to someone in Keldagrim already? Just ask around!33
Schematics to modify my cannon, and a golden helmet for you to wear.32
Hey, that's quite a bit of money. Which you don't have on you. Oh well, I wasn't selling my boots anyway.28
Yes, you already showed me that. But I'm not going to waste my own gold on it, make a cannonball and bring it to me.27
Oh, but I am. I dearly wish to return home again, where it's nice and comfortable and an old dwarf like me has nothing to worry about.20
Because I want to become obscenely rich before I do! Leave a legacy of sorts.20
So how about it? Will you help me?20
Come back any time!19
Not without wearing your golden helmet you're not!18
I can't tell you!17
You're a human! This is a dwarven thing!13
Perhaps if you were to help some of my fellow dwarves...13
They're not in it! They can't fish if their lives depended on it!12
Let me have a look at that!11
I hear there is a fishing competition that a few of my distant kinsmen are keen on winning, for instance.11
This doesn't make any sense, it's all jumbled up! Sort it out, will you, don't torment an old dwarf with nonsensical drawings!10
That's where you come in! Run along now!10
Nice idea, %USERNAME%, but no one will buy a golden cannonball!8
Haha, nice try %USERNAME%!8
Pity I'm not selling my boots, not for any price or any item.8
It looks nice, but it's not much use as a projectile.7
I'm not selling them anyway.7
I just wanted to see how high you would go!7
Great, because I don't want to sell them.6
You'll need a golden helmet as well, if you want to survive the blast.6
Right.5
Have you spend the better part of a century mining in dark and damp caverns then?5
Then don't speak nonsense, you young rascal!5
Oh, be more careful! Here, have a copy, but don't lose it again!4
Well... you are the Fishing Champion... but I still can't really speak about this.4
The cannon is a top-secret dwarven project, you know.4
Being cheeky eh?4
What, are you trying to scam old Dondakan? You want me to sell these boots for a measly 1 coins?3
That's quite a sum of money, which I notice you don't even have on you.3
What, are you trying to scam old Dondakan? You want me to sell these boots for a measly 5 coins?3
Then run along and find them!2
If I were selling my granite boots, which I'm clearly not, I would certainly not accept a mere 1000 coins for them.2
What am I supposed to do with that?2
If I were selling my granite boots, which I'm clearly not, I would certainly not accept a mere 5000 coins for them.2
Maybe you should speak to Lawgof, the Commander of the Black Guard in Kandarin.2
You're so poor, you don't even have that much gold on you...2
If I were selling my granite boots, which I'm clearly not, I would certainly not accept a mere 40000 coins for them.1

Suit yourself, I don't need any help from a human anyway!1
