Archaeologist chathead

Asgarnia Smith is an archaeologist that plays a role in the Desert Treasure quest. Players begin the quest by talking to him. He is searching for treasure instead of pursuing the science, however, and can be asked about some of his adventures. According to Smith, he once managed to recover a Karamjan artefact known as the Golden Monkey of Tee-Tah-Toh. He also tells the player that he has heard of more treasure in Karamja, and he will be going there shortly.



  • Asgarnia Smith is a reference to Indiana Jones, a character in a real-world series of films, who was originally going to be called Indiana Smith. His name is akin to Jones' as well, with the name of an area as his first name (Asgarnia is a kingdom in RuneScape and Indiana is an American State), and a very common surname (Jones and Smith are both common in Western cultures). This is further proven with the examine text, as Indiana Jones was also an archaeologist.
  • He could be related to Orlando Smith, as they share a last name.
  • He claims to be the one who discovered Temple of Ikov and Brimhaven Arena.
