Your stories have entertained me. I will let you into the cave for a short time.39,562
Collect as much as you can from the blue streams. If you let in water from the green streams, it will take away from the blue. For Guthix is god of balance, and balance lies in the juxtaposition of opposites.32,751
Tell me... a story...14,439
You will need to empty both of your hands first.4,420
Are you ready?1,454
Perhaps you should empty your hands before you begin.1,417
Here you go.1,404
Your dedication to balance is astounding adventurer.1,181
Before you can collect the Tears of Guthix you must make a bowl out of the stone in the cave on the south of the chasm.1,129
That cannot be. She had not yet returned to learn of her destiny. The mark that the tears gave her had not begun to glow again.1,102
Twenty tears should be sufficient. Collect twenty blue tears, but remember that green tears will decrease the amount of blue.1,093
Then I will call upon their power.1,091
Listen to me, Zanik. You are marked for a special purpose, and you have been granted new life so that you can carry it out. Your destiny is to lead all goblins into a new age.1,087
Zanik's death was premature. The gods will allow it to be reversed.1,084
This is indeed strange. I must commune with mighty Guthix and the forces of destiny.1,083
The Tears of Guthix have powers beyond the understanding of mortals. They can restore her to life, with the gods' permission.1,073
You must collect some of the tears using Zanik's tear- bowl. Although I would not normally deem you worthy to collect the tears, I will let you into the cave for this special purpose.1,057
I have been waiting here three thousand years, guarding the Tears of Guthix. I serve my master faithfully, but I am bored.1,040
I will keep your bowl for you, so that you may collect the tears many times in the future.1,011
It is not normal for the Tears to have that effect.941
Someday you will know. But today you must hurry to foil the plot that even now threatens your home!818
It is a sign. The power of the Tears has marked you for a special purpose.807
An adventurer such as yourself must have many tales to tell. If you can entertain me, I will let you into the cave for a time.804
Now... tell me another story, and I will let you collect the tears for the first time.802
Zanik has not yet fulfilled her destiny, so the gods will allow her to be resurrected. You must collect some of the Tears of Guthix to allow this to happen.769
I cannot tell you more now. That mark will soon fade, but someday it will glow again, and on that day you should return to me so that I can tell you more about your destiny.763
Then you can drink of the power of balance, which will make you stronger in whatever area you are weakest.750
The more I enjoy your story, the more time I will give you in the cave.748
Mine some stone from that cave, make it into a bowl, and bring it to me, and then I will let you catch the Tears.740
There is a cave on the south side of the chasm that is similarly infused with the power of Guthix. The stone in that cave is the only substance that can catch the Tears of Guthix.728
But first you will need to make a bowl in which to collect the tears.727
You must have both hands free to carry the bowl. Speak to me again when your hands are free.616
You must collect some of the tears using Zanik's tear- bowl. I will not count this against the next time you can collect the tears for yourself.474
Ah, a happy ending. It would not be good for such an anniversary to go unmarked.434
The Third Age of the world was a time of great conflict, of destruction never seen before or since, when all the gods save Guthix warred for control.433
Imps! I remember the age of great war, when armies of Zamorak's imps bloodied the ankles of the other gods' creatures.431
Poor silly goblins! Their race had such potential, if only they could rise above their petty squabbles.420
A strange attachment to an item that has no use after one's death.417
So the mortals above have discovered magic once more? Very interesting.416
Such is ever the folly of pirates, to bury their loot in the ground so that another can dig it up.416
One should never underestimate the uses of the vegetables of Guthix.408
Such a small task hardly seems worthy of the name 'quest'.408
I remember Delrith. A most unpleasant character; I am glad he has been dispatched.407
I see you are on your way to becoming strong in the magical arts.401
That was a good deed. It is a terrible thing to be locked out of one's natural form.400
Never was a story of more woe Than this of Juliet and her Romeo.394
Nature gave sheep their wool for a reason, you know. I hope they were not too cold.389
It is good that you have helped a servant of Guthix to his rest.373
Zaros? I had not heard that name for a thousand years even before the start of my sojourn here.373
Cats are one of the most mysterious creatures of Guthix. I hope you take your responsibility seriously.367
A masked killer slashing vulnerable young people in a deserted mansion? Is that what stories have become in this day and age? How formulaic!366
A magnet and an undead chicken? Really?355
These fairies seem to be well versed in the powers of nature.354
The colossal Wyrms, of whom today's dragons are a pale reflection, turned all the sky to fire, while on the ground armies of foot soldiers, goblins and trolls and humans, filled the valleys and plains with blood.353
I knew that story already, in fact, but I suppose your own perspective of the events is a valid tale in itself.350
It has not been long since your last visit. Come again tomorrow.346
Fishing? A strange test of worthiness to pass through an underground tunnel!340
It is often hard to know how long a task will take when we begin it.337
So war still rages in the world above? Will you never tire of creating machines of destruction?336
That is a fitting reward for a dedicated servant of Guthix. Thank you for helping him.332
Deception of the people by their rulers is a terrible thing.329
It is a rare privilege to understand the language of those beings. You should listen carefully to all that they say - but not believe too much of it.325
I have heard tales of these 'Temple Knights' from many years past. Be wary, their motivations are not what they might lead you to believe.324
Zanik still has her destiny to fulfil, and I have a feeling you will have a part in that.323
Yes, it seems he sacrificed his sanity for power.322
I see they couldn't make a monkey out of you!316
I remember well the battle of Uzer.312
With the power to create life comes responsibility. I see that Fenkenstrain was not up to the task.311
The Dorgeshuun goblins have been good neighbours during my vigil here. They are a timid race, but not cowardly, and I am glad they have the peace they desire.309
So the vile Mahjarrat still walk the earth above? Then Zamorak's defeat was not as thorough as I had thought.305
It is good that you can take time from slaying and adventuring to grow a beautiful garden.303
You should be careful about meddling with your own head.302
Silence fell, for the gods knew that none could challenge the power of the mighty Guthix -- for His power is that of nature itself, to which all other things are subject, in the end.301
I have a feeling that Keldagrim will be the setting of many great adventures for you.301
Agrith-Naar was one of the demons my master banished at the end of the great war. It seems he found a way to work around the ban on direct intervention.297
But on His way into the depths of the earth He sat and rested in this cave; and, thinking of the battle-scarred desert that now stretched from one side of His world to the other, He wept.295
In time the noise of the conflict woke Guthix from His deep slumber, and He rose and stood in the centre of the battlefield so that the splendour of His wrath filled the world, and He called for the conflict to cease!294
Guthix reclaimed that which had been stolen from Him, and went back underground to return to His sleep and continue to draw the world's power into Himself.293
I hope they supplied something more suitable for the child to drink.290
The alchemists walked a dangerous path when they created that homunculus. I am glad that events ended well for the creature.290
The most fearsome monsters are to be found in the darkness of our own minds.288
I suggest you think about the origin of those spells. Ancient magics are not to be toyed with.286
A victim dies and a murderer is punished. That is balanced.283
Later, Guthix noticed that the rocks continued to weep, and that their tears were infused with a small part of His power.278
Brief is life, but more precious if its passing is properly honoured.273
Power often comes with a cost, and the highest cost is often the one you do not immediately see...272
Zombie Ogres!? Some of the foulest creatures of Zamorak. In the great wars the zogre armies could repel the forces of Saradomin with their stench alone!271
And so great was His sorrow, and so great was His life- giving power, that the rocks themselves began to weep with Him.269
Drunken zombie pirates? What is the world coming to?269
So He set me, His servant, to guard the cave, and He entrusted to me the task of judging who was and was not worthy to access the tears.266
That evil wizard's time spells sent a ripple through the fabric of balance. I am glad he is no longer at large!257
It is long since I have seen the stars...256
The Moon Clan's reliance on magic is no more balanced than the Fremenniks' hatred of it.251
You must be careful not to let drink muddle your brain!244
By remembering the past, one should be able to avoid repeating its mistakes. Yet the mortal races show no sign of abandoning their obsession with war and bloodshed.237
That was a strange response to such an unfortunate event. But the motives of the Temple Knights have always been incomprehensibly unbalanced.234
I am always glad to hear tales of the Dorgeshuun.234
Rats are a highly unbalanced creature and it is right that their numbers be controlled.230
Politics is never straightforward.230
Fear is the most insidious enemy of all.230
It is a terrible thing for people to turn away from their religion. I think the spirits taught the town a lesson.229
The paranoia and ambition of the penguins' leaders will not serve their people well.215
War? What is it good for?210
Your stories have entertained me. But I will not permit any adventurer to access the tears more than once a week. Come back in 7 days.203
A hat is just a hat, %USERNAME%.201
A battle between two such powerful beings will take much time and unleash much energy. I hope that the natural world is not damaged in this conflict!196
I fear you will have no new stories to tell me. Come again in 7 days if you have had more adventures by then.193
What could that man have wanted all those bones for? Collecting that many bones cannot be a balanced activity.187
I fear you will have no new stories to tell me. Come again when you have had more adventures.179
The loss of a friend is never easy. However, you should always remember to be thankful of the time you had together.167
You should use that time to have more adventures! You may not re-enter the cave until you have more stories to tell.164
The names of trolls never cease to amaze me.158
Your tales are often very curious, %USERNAME%.153
The dragonkin once brought this world to the brink of ruin. It is good you stopped them from doing so again.142
Glough's evil plans always threaten to upset the balance of our world. I am pleased you were able to stop him.134
I will tell you the story of the light-creatures.131
It has not been long since your last visit. Come again in 2 days.128
Myriad and beautiful were the creatures and civilizations of the early ages of the world. Gielinor was a work of art, shaped lovingly over the millennia by the creative mind of Guthix.118
Only the sturdiest races survived the Godwars, and even then only by abandoning their high culture and gearing their societies towards war. Of the more delicate races there is now no trace, and almost no memory.110
One such race had bodies as fragile as snowflakes, yet they built crystal cities that stood for a thousand years.106
Indeed, so marvellous was this light-show at its height that the patterns of light themselves became alive, and great flocks of luminous creatures rode along the gem- cast beams, each drawn to its own colour.101
The wind would whisper through the spires and fill them with sweet harmonies, and the rising sun would shine through the precious gems that studded the towers and create inter plays of light as if rainbows were dancing.99
I am sure you will have many more adventures on behalf of the Myreque. Then, perhaps, you will have even more stories to tell me.95
The creatures you see floating in this chasm are the last sorry remnants of that age. I do not know how they made their way here and survived to this time, but I am grateful for their company.93
It has not been long since your last visit. Come again in 3 days.92
Very well, when you are eligible to drink from the Tears, you shall be reminded daily.81
Your stories have entertained me. But I will not permit any adventurer to access the tears more than once a week. Come back tomorrow.77
Very well, it will be up to you to remember when you can return. It is good that you are willing to take responsibility for yourself in this way.76
It has not been long since your last visit. Come again in 4 days.61
It is good that a troll wishes to study the complex skill that is Farming.58
Bob the Cat? I have heard of that strange creature but have never been able to fathom him. It is no small achievement for you to be able to!50
It has not been long since your last visit. Come again in 5 days.36
Not long after the start of my vigil a party of goblins happened on my cave. These were the ugly brutes of the gods' armies, but their armour bore a faded patch where the symbol of a god had been removed.34
Your stories have entertained me. But I will not permit any adventurer to access the tears more than once a week. Come back in 4 days.33
Your story has entertained me. But it is a poor sort of adventurer who only tells stories of the past and does not find new stories to tell. I will not let you into the cave again until you have had more adventures!32
They looked around hesitantly, squinting in the light of crude torches, but as soon as they saw me they raised their spears and charged.30
Then the forces of destiny must wait until a time that is more convenient for you.30
Two hundred years later another goblin found me. This one was unarmed, and although she was very wary I succeeded in engaging her in conversation.28
Since then I have had many more visits from the descendants of those lost warriors, and over the centuries I have seen them change.28
No one may access the Tears of Guthix by force. I sent them tumbling into the chasm.27
They have become timid rather than aggressive, and I have seen the light of intelligence grow in their bulging eyes.27
Your stories have entertained me. But I will not permit any adventurer to access the tears more than once a week. Come back in 2 days.27
I have followed the progress of their race, but their individual stories hold little interest for me.25
Their stories are repetitive and grim, of scraping a living out of the harsh rock and through ingenuity and toil shaping it into a home.24
Your stories have entertained me. But I will not permit any adventurer to access the tears more than once a week. Come back in 3 days.23
Hey, I have something for you but you don't have any space for it!20
It has not been long since your last visit. Come again in 6 days.17
You should pick up your pet. This is no time to have an animal at your feet to trip you up.16
Your stories have entertained me. But I will not permit any adventurer to access the tears more than once a week. Come back in 6 days.15
It has not been long since your last visit. Come again in 7 days.13
Your stories have entertained me. But I will not permit any adventurer to access the tears more than once a week. Come back in 5 days.13
I do not need that from you.13
I fear you will have no new stories to tell me. Come again tomorrow if you have had more adventures by then.11
I will not permit you to be in the cave for long. Collect as many tears as you can.11
Before you show me your possessions, it would be polite for you to converse with me.10
I feel we should address the matter of Zanik before telling any more stories.9
Perhaps you should use it with a chisel, rather than with my face.9
I have already told you my story, and you have not told me yours!8
I fear you will have no new stories to tell me. Come again in 6 days if you have had more adventures by then.7
I fear you will have no new stories to tell me. Come again in 2 days if you have had more adventures by then.6
Hmm. I think you will need to have more adventures before you can tell a good story.5
I fear you will have no new stories to tell me. Come again in 5 days if you have had more adventures by then.5
I fear you will have no new stories to tell me. Come again in 3 days if you have had more adventures by then.4
If you wish to tell me more stories, come out here first.3
You will need to collect twenty tears in order to resurrect Zanik.2

So many aeons have passed since these were made. So many mortals have been born, lived their lives, then died as Balance requires. What stories they must have known!1
I would be happy to honour the dead by combining such an icon with your Staff of the Dead. Give the items to me, if you wish.1
I would happily honour the dead, and all the stories they must have known, by combining your Staff of the Dead with your icon of my master, Guthix. But this cannot be undone; they will be bound forever.1
I fear you will have no new stories to tell me. Come again in 4 days if you have had more adventures by then.1
