Ah! Here you go!3,543
I need you to answer this for me.3,535
Please tell me your answer.3,481
Spot on!3,443
Please enter the answer to the question.3,340
Correct, you've completed this part of your training.3,319
I have further training for you.3,318
From the caverns beneath this lake. Many of our ancestors travelled to these caverns in order to hunt for glory and found only death. Their bones must still lie inside, their spirits trapped in torment.2,356
I see you have free space and no record of the tasks I have set you. Please take this book as a record of your progress - between the spirits and your diligence, I expect it will always be up to date.2,317
You will need to construct a small ship by using an axe upon logs in this area, then add the bones of a long dead barbarian hero.1,972
In that case, farewell.1,857
Good day, you seem a hearty warrior. Maybe even some barbarian blood in that body of yours?1,536
I see you have free space and no way to record any information you may recover from the caverns. Please take this book as a record of your researches - between the spirits and your diligence I expect it will always be1,504
Those who have previously entered the cavern have not all returned, some of them seemed intent upon research and discovery as much as loot and daring deeds. It would be a shame if you were to recover any of1,481
I will repeat myself fully, since this is quite complex. Listen well. In order to send our ancestors into the spirit world, their mortal remains must be burned with due ceremony. This can only be performed close to the1,407

Correct. The spirit will ascend to glory; the pyre will remain. You will, temporarily, obtain a closer link to the spirit world. During this heightened contact, any bones you bury will have increased importance to the gods.1,234
water on the shore of the lake just to our north-east. You will recognise the correct places by the ashes to be seen there.1,230
their notes and be unable to record them handily. I hope the new book will give you space for such discoveries.1,218
Who can tell? My forefathers weren't averse to travelling, so it is possible. They tended to cause too much trouble in your so-called civilised lands, however, so most returned to their ancestral lands.1,197
To begin with I can supply knowledge in the ways of firemaking, our special rod fishing tricks and a selection of spear skills.1,191
Your perception is creditable. I can eventually teach of more advanced firemaking techniques, and the rod fishing skills are but a preliminary to our special potions and brews.1,188
By now you know my response.1,162
I have little knowledge of the caverns, they are blocked from the spirits with whom I commune. I can only suspect that whatever slew barbarian heroes is indeed mighty. I would also suggest that these bones might well1,155
While you civilised folk use small, weak fishing rods, we barbarians are skilled with heavier tackle. We fish in the lake nearby.1,120
Certainly. Take the rod from under the bed in my dwelling and fish in the lake. When you have caught a few fish I am sure you will be ready to talk more with me.1,117
Dive into the whirlpool, in the lake to the east. The spirits will use their abilities to ensure you arrive in the correct location, though their influence fades so you must find your own way out.1,113
Exactly.1,108
We do not use these fish quite as you might expect. When you return from Fishing we can speak more of this matter.1,099
The first point in your progression is that of lighting fires without a tinderbox.1,096
For this process you will require a strung bow. You use the bow to quickly rotate pieces of wood against one another. As you rub the wood becomes hot, eventually springing into flame.1,087
The spirits will aid you, the power they supply will guide your hands. Go and benefit from their guidance upon an oaken log.1,081
The next stage is quite complex, so listen well. In order to send our ancestors into the spirit world, their mortal remains must be burned with due ceremony. This can only be performed close to the water on the shore of1,079

Fine news indeed, secrets of our spirit boats now await your attention.1,054
Dive into the whirlpool in the lake to the east. The spirits will use their abilities to ensure you arrive in the correct location, though their influence fades, so you must find your own way out.1,051
In any case, I think you are ready to learn our more secret tribal feats for yourself.1,005
First you must know more of harpoons through special study of fish that are usually caught with such a device.1,001
You must catch fish which are usually harpooned, without a harpoon. You will be using your skill and strength.995
Use your arm as bait. Wriggle your fingers as if they are a tasty snack and hungry tuna and swordfish will throng to be caught by you.988
Oh, my mind slipped for a moment, this method does indeed work with shark - though in this case the action must be more of a frenzied thrashing of the arm than a wriggle.986
the lake, just to our north-east. You will recognise the correct places by the ashes to be seen there.981
The number of bones that may be buried, before the aura fades, is increased with the difficulty of obtaining the wood which you use.976
I see you need encouragement in learning the ways of Fishing without a harpoon.968
Neither is it the most deadly. Go now and return when you have drawn a fish from the sea, with sheer strength and knowledge of our scaled prey.952
be very uncommon, since heroes are not found in vast numbers. Good luck.934
These secrets must, however, wait until you have learned of the more basic skills.921
You will know when you are ready, since inspiration will fill your mind.882
Your mind is as clear as the waters you have fished. This is good.879
Patience young one. These are fish which are fat with eggs rather than fat of flesh, this is what we will make use of. We can speak of this in a few moments.876
increased importance to the gods. The number of bones that may be buried, before the link fades, is increased with the difficulty of obtaining the wood which you use.859
Many warriors complain that spears are difficult to find, we barbarians thus forge our own.859
If you use our special barbarian anvil here, you will find it ideal. Other anvils are not sturdy enough or shaped appropriately for the forging work involved. Make any of our spears and return.855
Indeed. You may use our special anvil for this spear type too. The ways of black and dragon spears are beyond our knowledge, however; these spears may not be created.853
might well be very uncommon, since heroes are not found in vast numbers. Good luck.852
As you might suspect, our ways require greater understanding than is gained by simply looking at a weapon. It is also the case that the process involves a differently852
The next step is to manufacture a one-handed version of a spear, suitable for combat. Such a spear is known to us as a hasta.850
The manufacture of spears is now yours as a speciality. Use your skill well. In addition I am ready to reveal one-handed spear crafts.849
I sense you have more understanding of spears through your studies.848
Nothing is sane when one is born knowing only certain death. The spirits approve of you however, so death is on your side.847
I mean that when you eventually die and find peace, at least the spirits you encounter will be your friends. Alas for you adventurous sort, for whom this natural passing is impossible.843
Certainly, though it is quite simple - they are the barbarians of the past, who have died in the passing of the years. There are three categories which learned sages claim may describe all spirits encountered.773
To live life to it's fullest of course - that you may be a peaceful spirit when your time ends.768
I see you have constructed your hasta, and are approaching readiness.767
A second category of spirit is made up of those who are not yet at peace. However, all that is needed is for their mortal remains to be laid to rest and they will join the peaceful majority.736
Note well that you will require wood for the spear shafts; the quality of wood must be similar to that of the metal involved.731
balanced spear. Before you may use such a weapon in anger, you must make an example. Only then will you fully understand the poise and techniques involved.726
Alas, there is a small minority who will never be at rest. These have been slain in moments of insanity by their brothers or by adventurers. They are not at rest and will attack those they blame for their tortured state.722
The secret of our Herblore is linked to the fish in the lake nearby.693
If you use your knife upon them, several new fishy items will be produced. Fish parts can be used as bait, the roe or caviar is more useful for us.688
Certainly not. Mixing these items with two dose potions is what should be performed. This results in a nutritious slop, perfect for healing as well as imparting the effect of the potion.681
You will discover that you are able to decant a four dose potion into an empty vial, thus giving two potions of two doses. This will aid you in the process.673
Am I that predictable? In this case I in fact require a potion, for my own stocks. Bring me a lesser attack potion combined with fish roe.667
The majority are at peace, having died with their ambitions sated, even if this ambition was as simple as a glorious death. They can contact those in our world in order to spur us on to glory. Of course, they cannot637
Roe can only be used for some of the more easily combined mixes, while caviar may be used for any of the mixes of which I am aware.566
or will not contact all inhabitants of these lands. All are not worthy.557
They are not known, however, for being able to determine this blame with any great accuracy, so may be considered as dangerous to all.542
I see you have free space and no record of the tasks I have set you. Please take this book as a record of your progress - between the spirits and your diligence I expect it will always be up to date.483
I will not reveal all of my private matters to you. Some secrets are best kept rather than revealed.452
I see you have my potion. I will say no more than that I am eternally grateful.451
Do you have my potion?324
Bring me a lesser attack potion combined with fish roe. There is more importance in this than you will ever know.318
Alas, I do not sense that you have been successful in your Fishing yet. The look in your eyes is not that of the osprey.297
Your scepticism will be your loss.293
Legendary birds, which the ignorant call eagles. They prey upon fish. Do as they do to gain inspiration.279
Take some wood and metal and make a spear upon the nearby anvil, then you may return to me. As an example, you may use bronze bars with normal logs or iron bars with oak logs. If you perform this task I will265
be freed from the spirits complaining of your lack of dedication.233
Yes, I can convert a Zamorakian spear into a hasta. The spirits require me to request 300,000 coins from you for this service.230
You do not exude the presence of one who has poured his soul into manufacturing spears.196
Indeed they did. There are no secrets from those who live eternally.173
Remember, you cannot comprehend how to wield a hasta until you have learned to create one, by following my teachings.143
Welcome back oh friend of the spirits, I am humbled in your presence.137
You are no longer the apprentice, but the master. Seek to inspire us with your daring deeds and legendary feats. Aspire to join the spirits when your time comes.134
Yes, I can convert a Zamorakian hasta into a spear. I do not charge for this service.134

The next step is to manufacture a spear, suitable for combat. Our distant cousins on Karamja are in need of help, however, and you must aid them before I can aid you. You must go now and complete the Tai Bwo128
I am afraid this is a vital step; the spirits foresee that your understanding of spears will increase through this quest. You may not progress in the use of spears until you have completed this mission.120

Hail to you, saviour of my ancestors. The spirits herald your presence with a spectral fanfare.104
On this great day you have my thanks, eternally. May you find riches while rescuing my spiritual ancestors in the caverns for many moons to come.104
Yes, I can convert a Zamorakian spear into a hasta. The spirits require me to request a discounted 150,000 coins from you for this service.103
Me? I am Otto, known as the Godblessed. I follow the ways of our barbarian ancestors, communing with the spirits of the dead and teaching their ways to worthy disciples.82
As you wish.77
Maybe there's even some barbarian blood in that body of yours? You look a likely sort to learn of these ways.69
Nope, Go check again!38
Wrong! Focus your thoughts.21
I see you have made my potion but not yet brought it. Do not torment me so.18
We will talk when you learn to be less impetuous.16
What help would you ask of me?6
The potion you offer is half consumed. I require a full one, so restrain your impulses to drink from the potion before delivering it to me.4
