Hello there. I'm Rat.1,057
No, no. My name is Rat. Rat Burgiss.1,057
It's Rat, thank you. And I, uh...heh...I seem to be in a bit of trouble here, as you can probably see.1,052
Well, I'm a trader by nature and I was on the way to Varrock with my cart here when I was set upon by outlaws! They ransacked my cart and stole some very important papers that I must get back.1,051
Right, now I heard those outlaws say something about having a small camp site somewhere to the north-west of Varrock. They headed off to the north-west of here. They took 5 pages with them.982
Excellent! I knew you could help! Let me take those from you, there.919
Uhhh...no. No, that's not it. You know, on second thought, I think I'll keep my secret for now. Look, instead, you can do another job for me.916
Yes, well, I'm sure that may be the case. However, what I want you to do is take this letter to someone for me. It's in a different language so, trust me, you won't be able to read it.914
Yes, good luck then.911
Well, %USERNAME%, how did it go?889
I take it that it went alright, then? That's great news!889
Yes, you are right. But rest assured, we will be watching him much more closely from now on.889
You mean you want to help?886
Ah, %USERNAME%! You've returned!785
Now, I liked the way you handled yourself on that last little 'mission' I gave you there, so I'm going to let you in on a little secret!784
I am not really a trader. I am the Commander of the Varrock Palace Secret Guard. VPSG for short.778
I'm just getting to that. A short while ago, we received word that Surok had discovered a powerful mind-control spell and intended to use it on King Roald himself!778
Yes, we heard that somehow Surok had obtained the things he needed but we were not sure how. I thought it might have been you.778
Okay, here's what I need you to do. One of my contacts has devised a spell that he is sure will be able to counteract the effects of the mind-control spell. I need you to visit him.778
His name is Zaff. He runs a staff shop in Varrock. Go and speak to him and he will tell you what you should do. I will send word to him to let him know that you are coming.778
Yes, but until now, the spell has been useless to him as he is currently under guard at the palace and not allowed to leave. He could not get the tools for the spell because if he left the palace he would be arrested!776
Kill the outlaws and get those papers back from them for me. Here's a folder in which you can put the pages. Be careful, though; those outlaws are tough.761
A letter for me? Let me see.761
Take it to a wizard named Surok Magis who resides in the Varrock Palace Library. I'll see about some sort of reward for your work when I get myself sorted out here.660
Zaff has already briefed me on the events. We will arrange for Surok to be fed and watched. I think he will not be a problem any more.658
In the meantime, let me reward you for what you've done, give you a little training. I will be sure to call on you if we ever need help in the future.632
You've done very well and have been a credit to the VPSG; perhaps one day there may be a place for you here!630
This letter is treasonous! This does indeed confirm my worst fears. It is time I let you into my secret and hopefully this will answer any questions you may have.623
When you find all 5 pages, put them in the folder and bring them back to me!587
He could control the whole kingdom that way!563
However, I assumed you did not know of his plans; that is why you weren't arrested!559
Oh, hello. I'd love to chat right now, but I'm a bit busy. Perhaps you could come back and chat another time?144
Not at all! Farewell!89
Yes, I know! I don't know how I survived.85
Look, do you want to help me or not?71
No problem! Say, have you been to see the wizard's tower in the south yet? It's an amazing sight! You should go and see it!45
Ah, %USERNAME%! Good to see you! I heard you got my letter to Surok. Well done!44
Yes, of course! I'd be happy to give you a reward, but I have a lot on my mind with...you know...trader...stuff!40
Head north-west from here into the forest north-west of Varrock. Find the Outlaw Camp and kill the outlaws there.33
Collect the pages of my document for me and put them into the folder I gave you. When the folder contains 5 pages, bring it to me!28
Ah! %USERNAME%! You did a fine service for us. You might make a good member of the VPSG one day, with a little training and a bit more muscle!23
Uh...yes. I guess so.22
Ah! Uhh...no, not really.22
No...I mean yes... Look, that's besides the point.22
At the moment, no. Things seem pretty quiet. However, I have heard a rumour about something strange going on in...hmm, no, I think we can handle this one for now.21
Can you help me?21
Why? Whatever do you mean?21
I'm sure I don't know what you mean. Let me see the letter, please.20
But, who knows? We may need your assistance again soon. Thank you, %USERNAME%.18
Yes, %USERNAME%?17
Uh...so you can't help me?15
Take that letter I gave you to Surok Magis, the wizard found in the Varrock Palace Library.13
I see. Well, try not to drown yourself with all that brain usage!12
Don't you want another quest?10
Well, fine!8
You need to go and see Zaff. He can be found at 'Zaffs Staffs', the staff shop in Varrock. He will tell you what to do next.7
Good!7
So go then!6
Go then!6
Oh well. I'll just wait here then and maybe some nice person will help me. Perhaps...one day...6
Yes. I still haven't found someone to help me yet, but I hear you've been very busy yourself!6
Oh, I have my sources. Was there anything else?6
Yes, good luck, then.4
No! Not at all! Nuh-uh! Nope! Hardly! Noooo, no no no!4
You will need to go and speak to Surok now. Arrest him under the authority of the Varrock Palace Secret Guard.4
It may be tough and Surok will most likely not be arrested without a fight, so be on your guard!4
Oh, wait a minute. I was going to give you a folder in which to collect my papers, but you haven't got enough room for it. Talk to me when you do.3
Ah! You're back! Excellent!3
What I want you to do is take this letter to someone for me. It's in a different language so, trust me, you won't be able to read it.3
How do you know of them?3
I see. The Dagon'hai were a powerful order of Zamorakian mages who resided here in this very city.3
They hid themselves away within the city and, rumour has it, they even had a way of getting to the Wilderness and back without ever being seen, although I have no idea how that might have been.3
Nobody knows. They disappeared from the city a hundred years ago and very few people even remember who they were.3
My grandfather's brother, my great uncle, was a priest of Saradomin and he would tell me stories of the wars with the Dagon'hai as a child.3
Thanks!3
Yes, that would be because it's a rickshaw cart.3
You don't say...!3
Didn't I explain this already?3
Excellent! In that case, we are all set and ready to foil Surok's plans!2
Now it is all down to you, %USERNAME%. As you have proven yourself in the tasks I have set you, I am making you an honorary member of the VPSG!2
Well...no. But we do have a nice lady called Emma who makes the tea on Mondays.2
Right then. You have an important task set out for you. Good luck, %USERNAME%!2
Unfortunately, as an honorary member of the VPSG, you only get to act under our authority. You aren't entitled to the full Secret Guard package.2
I'm afraid not. No.2
Yes, you have an important job! Good luck, %USERNAME%!2
Okay, well listen this time. A short while ago we received word that Surok had discovered a powerful mind-control spell and intended to use it on King Roald himself.2
Yes, but until now the spell has been useless to him as he is currently under guard at the palace and not allowed to leave.2
He could not get the tools for the spell because if he left the palace he would be arrested!2
However, I assumed you did not know of his plans, so you weren't arrested!2
However, the priests of Saradomin warred ferociously with them and tried to destroy them. The Dagon'hai, though, were very clever and extremely cunning.2
Well, maybe a bit...2
Sure. Here you go. I'll add it to your account.2
No, it's just the way you're standing!2
You still don't have any free space in your inventory! How do you get up in the morning with a brain like that? Talk to me when you have some space!2
Surok is a powerful mage and ruthless too. Who knows what will happen. I am sure that we will prevail, though. Don't worry, %USERNAME%! You'll be fine!2
No, I'm afraid I have nothing in stock, largely due to the fact that I'm not really a trader, as I just mentioned.2
You shouldn't mock your commanding officer, private! Don't forget, I can still have you arrested for conspiracy with Surok!2
Uhhh...no. No, that's not it. And nobody likes beggars! You know, on second thought, I think I'll keep my secret for now. Look, instead, you can do another job for me.1
Yes, well, I'm sure that may be the case. But what I want you to do is take this letter to someone for me. It's in a different language so, trust me, you won't be able to read it.1

Goodness me! Not much of a messenger, are you? Here's another one; try not to lose it this time! I've charged the parchment to your account.1
No thanks. I prefer tartan.1
What are you implying?1
Why exactly are you still here?1
Okay, good luck!1
