Doric's Tasks

Doric: Hello traveller, what brings you to my humble smithy?


- Do you have any Smithing tasks for me?

Doric: (see below)

- How's the business doing?


- (if only a few tasks completed) Getting there. I'm really starting to imagine a new future now; one that I would have never been living had it not been for Boric. Was there anything else you wanted?
- (if several tasks completed) Well, at the moment, Boric can't stop grinning like a fool. That's a good thing, right?
- (After most tasks complete) Our business has stretch out across the globe, we're receiving orders from all kinds of people; our future has never looked brighter.
- (if tasks are completed) You wouldn't believe how well we're doing. It's all thanks to you giving me that one initial push.
- I wanted to use your anvils.

Doric: Go right ahead. Least I can do after the help you gave me.

Smithing for Sten

Doric: I do, actually and I bet it would be right up your street. But before I let you loose on our customers, I have some very specific rules.

Player: I'm listening.

Doric: You must smith the items yourself; I don't want you heading to the Grand Exchange or buying them from other people. We need to guarantee a top-quality service, and that means only selling products made by our own hands. Do you understand?

Player: Make all the times myself. Got it.

Doric: Now, are you ready for your first order?


- sure.
Doric: Sten at the Artisans' Workshop has made a special request. He works on the tracks in the basement, but lately Health and Safety have been poking around saying the place doesn't meet their standards. Anyway as much as I'd like to argue that point with them, it's better just to keep them happy. If you can make them 5 full bronze helms, Sten will reward you for your time.
- Not right now.
Doric: Oh, well, if you change your mind let me know.

Sten: Welcome to the tracks. I'm always looking for fresh recruits ready and willing to make tracks. It's experience for you and useful for us.

Player: Doric sent me here to help.

Sten: Good stuff. Do you have the bronze full helms I asked for?

Player: Yes I have them right here.

Sten: Just in time too! Health and Safety has been sniffing round something rotten. It'll be good to get them off my back at last.

Player: No problem. Can I have my reward now? Doric said you'd have something.

Sten: Reward? You think just like that I'd reward you? We're dwarves! If we just needed armour do you not think we would have made it ourselves?

Player: When you put it like that …

Sten: The reason you're here is because we need some tracks laying. Doric said he'd provide the labour in return for some supplies.

Player: I guess I don't have a choice.

Sten: That's the spirit! If you want the reward you adventurers love so much, you'll get to work and lay me 5 yards of bronze track. Talk to me once you're finished.

Sten: (Repeats first statement)

Player: I've laid those tracks for you.

Sten: Excellent work there; just exquisite. I suppose you'll be wanting a reward for that now?

Player: Yes please.

Sten: Here you go then.

You receive 250 Smithing XP and your Gofannon amulet has gained 750 charges.

Attack of the Trolls

Doric: How would you like to help Burthrope take the fight to the trolls and stop them killing and more innocents?


- Saving lives is what I do.
Doric: That's the attitude to have! I know you have history with them so I thought who better than you?
Player: So, what do I need to do?
Doric: Commander Denulth is looking to lead another assault on the trolls to drive them back from Burthorpe. The Commander has asked us to provide some equipment that his troops need: 3 bronze platebodies and 3 bronze kiteshields.
Player: I can do that.
Doric: Good. If you do well, Commander Denulth will consider setting up a regular order with us.
- It sounds a lot of effort.
Doric: Oh, well if you change your mind let me know.

Player: Hello!

Denulth: Welcome back friend!

Player: I have your order from Doric & Son.

Denulth: You have my armour? Hand it over, let me look at it.

Player: Yes, I have them here.

Denulth: Perfect! I'll get 1 of the men to distribute these to the troops and we'll drive those trolls back. You can tell Doric he has an order from me.

Guard: Commander! We've got a problem! The trolls took out 1 of our cannons.

Denulth: This is all we need! Without the cannon, we don't have the cover we need to advance on their position.

Guard: What should I do? The barrel's ruined.

Denulth: Nothing. Go back to your post.

Guard: Yes, Commander.

Denulth: For you however … I have another task. We need the cannon barrel repaired. Head back to Doric, he'll know how to fix it.

Player: I'll see what I can do.

Doric: Hello traveller, what brings you to my humble smithy?

Player: Doric, do you know how to repair a cannon barrel?

Doric: Aye, with 2 bronze bars and an anvil I can't see any problem fixing one up.

Player: Good, because we need to fix one up for Denulth right away. Can you show me how?

Doric: Of course I can, my little apprentice.

Doric quickly shows you the technique for repairing a cannon.

Doric: And that's how you fix one up. Make sure to use my anvil, though, as it's designed especially to deal with this unusual orders.

Player: Thanks, Doric.

Player: Hello!

Denulth: Welcome back friend!

Player: You wanted me to fix a cannon?

Denulth: Yes, the cannon in the watchtower to the north of here needs repairing. Talk to Doric he'll know how to repair it.

Player: Actually I have the part here.

Denulth: Well what are you waiting for? Get up to the roof of the watchtower and fix the cannon!

You fix the cannon using the part you made. You should head back to Commander Denulth to let him know it has been repaired.

Player: Hello!

Denulth: Welcome back friend!

Player: I fixed the cannon.

Denulth: Thank you for your assistance with the trolls. We can finally work on driing them away from town again. Take this as a reward.

You gain 500 Smithing XP and your Gofannon amulet has gained 1,500 charges.

Warhammers and Longswords

Doric: Now that you mention it I might. I've got an extra special customer you can have the pleasure of dealing with.

Player: This sounds ominous.

Doric: The generals from the Goblin Village north of here have made it known they would like to purchase some weapons from us. Head up there and find out what they want.


- If I have to.

Doric: Remember -good customer service!

- I'll pass.

Doric: Oh, well if you change your mind let me know.

Player: I hear you wanted some weapons from Doric?

Bentnoze: Who Doric? Is he tasty?

Wartface: No idiot, he little dwarf man who make the pokey weapons.

Bentnoze: He make the pokey weapons? How does he do that?

Wartface: He does the bash-bash with his hammer to make them. Seems silly to me, why not just kill someone and take them?

Player: Excuse me … I was told you might want to order some weapons.

Bentnoze: We do? I guess goblins could do with more things to kill people with. Yes, I'd like iron longswords!

Wartface: You stupid goblin? Iron warhammers are what we need for fighting.

Bentnoze: No, you want a big stabber to swing around.

Wartface: Big hammer to bash people with, you mean?

Player: Stop arguing! What would you like to order?

Bentnoze: Longswords!

Wartface: Warhammers!

Bentnoze: Wartface don't know what he talking about. Let Bentnoze talk to smelly human in peace.

Player: Enough! How about I get you 5 iron longswords and 5 iron warhammers to keep you both happy?

Wartface: That good plan, human. Even if Bentnoze don't know what he talking about.

Bentnoze: You have our weapons? Goblins getting itchy for killing.

Player: Yes I have them right here.

Wartface: Human makes goblins happy with their gift.

Player: Actually, you still have to pay?

Bentnoze: Haha, silly human. No, I remember you definitely saying these were gifts to us.

Player: I didn't say that! Pay up now before I take those weapons back and use them against you.

Wartface: Big human have bad attitude. Look like we not recommend Doric to other goblin clans now.

Player: Please don't do that.

Bentnoze: So you let us keep them?

Player: Okay, but surely there is something you can give me in return.

Bentnoze: Human makes goblins happy so we give useless junk as reward.

The useless junk turns out to be a book detailing some old blacksmithing techniques. You read through it quickly. You receive 750 Smithing XP and your Gofannon amulet has gained 2,250 charges.

Burial armor

Doric: You might think being a smith is all fun and games, but there is a serious side to the business. You see, one of the tasks we have is designing the burial armour for dwarves who have passed on. I would like you, as our business partner, to visit the Artisans' Workshop and learn the art of creating this armour. We create the weapons with which wars are waged; I think it's vital for every smith to understand what that means.

Player: I understand.

Doric: I'd like you to head to the Artisans' Workshop and practice the art of creating burial armour. What do you say?


- It would be an honour.

Doric: I'm glad. IF you make 20 pieces you'll be rewarded for your time and hopefully you'll learn a deeper lesson in the process. The dwarven smith Suak will be able to answer any other questions you have. I'll see you soon.

- I'm busy at the moment.

Doric: Oh, well if you change your mind let me know.

Player: Hey, what's going on here?

Suak: You make burial armour for fallen ancestors.

Player: Actually that's why Doric sent me here. To help you with making burial armours.

Suak: Doric a good man. But less talk. More making armours.

Suak is pleased with the amount of burial armour you've made.

Player: Hey, what's going on here?

Suak: You make burial armour for fallen ancestors.

Player: I've made all the armours you wanted, Suak.

Suak: You're good. Come back when you want to honour dead and learn to smith.

You received 1,500 Smithing XP and your Gofanannon amulet has gained 4,500 charges.

A Gnomish Request

Doric: Do you ever get more of making the same old items? Do you ever fancy learning something new?

Player: I do, but – you know – sometimes I wonder if we're equal business partners at all with the tasks you give me. I seem to have to march all over the world while you two get to stay here.

Doric: Nonsense! You're a vital part of the operation. Anyway, Commander Montai has requested some armour for his troops on the battlefield south of Ardougne. How would you like to travel there and make the old gnome happy?


- I have some time to spare.

Doric: Enthusiastic as ever, I like it! Commander Montai has requested from us 10 steel swords and 8 gnome steel platebodies.

Player: Gnome platebodies? I'm not sure I know how to make those.

Doric: And you call yourself a smith? They're just like regular platebodies but -

Player: Tiny?

Doric: Don't be such a sizeist! But yes, that's the only difference. IF you use one of my special anvils you will be able to convert a normal steel platebody into a gnome platebody.

Player: That doesn't sound too complicated. I'll get to work on it now.

- I'd rather not.

Doric: Oh, well if you change your mind let me know.

Player: Doric sent me here to give you a delivery.

Montai: Just in time too. Let's take a look then.

Player: Here you go.

Montai: Top-quality stuff there. Tell Doric he's got an order; if he keeps us in stock then we'll finally have the edge to push these Khazard troops back.

You hand over the items and in return receive 5,000 Smithing XP and your Gofannon amulet gains 15,000 charges.

Freminnik of War

Doric: An interesting turn up for the books, this one. The Fremennik, of all people, have requested an order from us. They were the last ones I thought would be contacting us, especially as we're 'outerlanders'. Do you want to be in charge of this order then?


- Sure thing.

Doric: You make an old dwarf happy to see such passion in your belly. You need to head to Skulgrimen, in Rellekka, as he had requested from us 20 mithril warhammers. Do us proud.

- I'll pass.

Doric: Oh, well if you change your mind let me know.

Player: Hello


If you haven't completed Fremenik Trials Sorry, I can't sell weapons to outerlanders. Wouldn't be right. Against our beliefs.
If you completed Fremenik Trials

Player: Actually I'm here with your order from Doric & Son.

Skulgrimen: Let me see the warhammers.

Player: Here they are.

Skulgrimen: Thank you, [outlander or Freminnik name]. Tell Doric I appreciate the quality and we'll send word of our next order to him shortly.

You receive 8000 Smithing XP and your Gofannon amulet has gained 24,000 charges.

Player: Is that it?

Skulgrimen: Actually, I should not be talking to an outerlander as it is.

Player: Oh, well goodbye then.

Nostalgic Warhammers

Doric: Actually I've got something quite exciting for you to do right now. You see every now and then someone asks for a special commission from smiths. And today I have one of those requests and I would like you to complete it.


- I'm as ready.

Player: So, what's the plan?

Doric: My good friend Santiri, in Kedalgrim, has asked us to make a special piece: a first generation black warhammer – the very type used by the founding members of the Black Guard.

Player: Wow, that sounds incredible.

Doric: Aye, that it is, now head to Keldagrim and Santiri will give you all the information you need.

Player: I'm on it.

- It doesn't sound that exciting to me.

Doric: Oh, well if you change your mind let me know.

Santiri: Good day to you, human. I have a little task for you, are you interested?


- Sorry, I'm a little busy.

Santiri: No problem, I'll find someone else to do it!

- What's the task?

Santiri: You're the human Doric has been telling me about? How exciting! Come, come, there's a lot we need to get done if we're to make my warhammer.

Player: So what do we need to do first?

Santiri: Well first we're going to need the designs for the warhammer, and I know just the person! The Supreme Commander of the Black Guard has a copy in his office.


- I'll ask him for it now.

Santiri:You are a kind soul. Thank you for your assistance. Take this note to remind you what you need to do.

- You didn't think of doing this yourself before I got here?

Santiri: What? Just walk in unannounced to the Commander's office? That's a bit rude, isn't it?

Player: Yet here you are, asking me to do it.

Santiri: Well, you're an adventurer, aren't you? You have different rules.

Player: If you say so. I'll go and get it now then.

Santiri: You are a kind soul. Thank you for your assistance. Take this note to remind you what you need to do.

Supreme Commander: So, what business do you have with me that you felt it right to interrupt my day?

Player: Sanriti sent me here to ask you for the designs of the first generation warhammer your Black Guard used?

Supreme Commander: He's still after those? Let me tell you something about those warhammers – if you can make one, it will be useless. That's why they were left in the past, it was an awful weapon that we quickly moved away from using.

Player: I'm not sure he wants to use it to fight with.

Supreme Commander: Well, if you're determined, it shouldn't be too hard. Like I said, those warhammers were pretty poor quality. Place the warhammer on an anvil, then hit it with a hammer a few times.

Player: But won't that damage it?

Supreme Commander: Don't you see? That's the plan! They were awful weapons so we just take an existing one and make it worse! I'll even give you a black warhammer to get you started.

Player: Thank you!

Bisi: Now, was there anything else you wanted to talk about?

Player: I must go now.

Bisi: Then I bid you farewell, human.

Santiri: Welcome, human, to the Quality Weapons Shop! Can I interest you in a purchase?

Player: I have your warhammer.

Santiri: Let me see it, let me see it!

You show Santiri the cracked warhammer.

Santiri: What do you call this? It looks nothing like a first generation warhammer at all.

Player: I think it has some resemblance …

Santiri: Perhaps if you're blind! This is an 18th generation warhammer at best. Awful, awful.

Player: Oh … Well what would you suggest changing?

Santiri: I don't know, I can't think straight at the minute. Tell you what, why don't you head to the library? They might have more information there.

Player: I'll be right back, Santiri.

Librarian: Welcome to the Keldagrim library, human traveller!

Player: Can you tell me about first generation black warhammers?

Librarian: Black warhammers, eh?

Player: First generation to be specific.

Librarian: Well the first thing I can tell you is that they weren't very good. In fact, they had a tendency to break very easily, which is why you don't see many around these days.

Player: What if I was trying to create one of these? Is there any way I could replicate one?

Librarian: If you could find something that could crush the hammer in a controlled way that wouldn't destroy it, you might just be able to get what you want.

Player: And how would I go about doing that?

Librarian: I'm no expert, but there are people in this city would be able to help you out. You're going to need to talk to someone who has a specific talent for working with heavy stone.

Player: I'll see what I can find out.

Stonemason: Do you want to buy any stone for building? Or gold leaf?

Player: Do you know anything about crushing warhammers?

Stonemason: Crushing warhammers? Can't say I've ever tried it, but my stone crusher over there is quite adapt at breaking things down. Feel free to use it if you want.

Santiri: Welcome, human, to the Quality Weapons Shop! Can I interest you in a purchase?

Player: I have your warhammer.

Santiri: Are you sure? You've definitely made a first generation warhammer this time?

Player: Definitely! There is absolutely no way you could be disappointed with this.

You show Santiri the crushed warhammer.

Santiri: Oh …

Player: It's perfect, look at it. It's crushed, tarnished and is barely useable as a weapon anymore.

Santiri: I mean it's alright – if you like the sixth generation warhammers. It's nothing like the first though.

Player: You're kidding me right?

Santiri: If you can't take this seriously maybe I've got the wrong person for this job.

Player: No, no, it'll be fine! What do I need to change to make it a first generation warhammer?

Santiri: Okay, one more chance. So, I think it needs to look a bit more … corroded.

Player: You mean you want a rusty warhammer?

Santiri: Rust! Yes, that's what it needs!

Player: Okay, let me see what I can do …

You hold the crushed warhammer under water and wait … Several hours later, it has rusted completely over.

Santiri: Welcome, human, to the Quality Weapons Shop! Can I interest you in a purchase?

Player: I have your warhammer.

Santiri: Please say you got it right this time?

Player: I don't dare guess. You tell me.

You show Santiri the rusty warhammer, waiting for the crushing disappointment.

Santiri: …

Player: Well?

Santiri: It's … it's beautiful! I can't believe I finally have such an exquisite piece in my collection.

Player: Really, beautiful? I mean … it's no trouble at all; Doric & Son here to help!

Santiri: You've made an old dwarf happy. Thank you. Please take this for your troubles.

Santiri hands you a book in exchange for the warhammer. You read it, feeling truly informed, and receive 12,000 Smithing XP and your Gofannon amulet gains 36,000 charges.

A Mysterious Client

Doric: We may do, but I'm not sure it's one we want to accept. When we woke up this morning a note had been pushed under the door asking for some weapons but no name was left on it. All seems a bit suspicious to me, what do you think we should do?


- Take the order.
Doric: Are you sure? I'm not so sure we should be providing weapons to someone who doesn't want to be known.
- I'm sure it will be fine.
Doric: If you say so. Though keep an eye out for who comes to pick them up.
Player: I promise. I'll not let anything bad come of this.
Doric: Thank you.
- We should try to be careful
Doric: Indeed. When you do drop these weapons off, keep an eye out for who comes to pick them up.
Player: I promise – nothing bad will come of this.
Doric: Okay, well here's the note and a crate for you to place the weapons in. Let me know how you get on.
- Let's leave it for now.
Doric: Oh, well if you change your mind let me know.


Aww a little monkey.
No monkey! Get away from there, those weapons are dangerous!
The world fades to black as the banana hits you in the face.
Ow, my head! What happened?

The weapons are gone but you find a note placed within the crate, alongside some banana skins. You feel a surge of knowledge as you gain 20,000 Smithing XP and your Gofannon amulet gains 60,000 charges.

Player: I have some information about that note. I'm not sure you'll believe this but there was just a pile of banana skins in its place.

Doric: You're kidding me. What do you think monkeys would want with weapons?

Player: Maybe they're planning on invading.

Doric: Haha good one!

Player: I was being serious.

Doric: Stop, you're cracking me up!

Boric's Tasks

Boric: Good to see you again, partner. Is there anything you need?


- Do you have any Mining tasks for me?

(See below)

- How's the business doing?


(no tasks complete) Slowly. It's taking us longer than I estimated to hit our targets.
(one task complete) We're getting there. We're managing our supplies for now, but we're going to have to look for further growth if we want to go international.
(two tasks complete) We're improving. Having workers in mines across the world has improved our supplies and allowed us a much bigger reach in the market.
(all tasks complete) Since you secured the Mining Guild deal, we've had to turn orders away - we're that bust! Doric & Son is a force to be reckoned with!
- No, I'm just passing.

Boric: Take care.

Task 1

Boric: I might do. Demand is higher than ever …

Player: But …?

Boric: … but we're struggling to keep up our supplies to meet all the orders. IF we start missing deadlines, we're going to undo all the good work we've put in so far.


- Is there anything I can do to help?

Boric: We need coal more than anything else, as it's used to keep our forge burning. There are coal trucks to the west of Seer's Village which allow the gathering of coal in bulk. Head there and gather 30 pieces of coal into one of the trucks. We've got a guy out there already, let him know when you're done.

Player: Okay, I'll go do that now.

- I'm too busy to worry about that now.

Boric: Are we business partners or not?

Dwarven Miner: Hello boss, you' here to help me with mining the coal?

Player: Yeah, and I've gathered enough for you.

Miner: Top stuff, boss, you happy for me to take it from you now?


- Yes.

Miner: Boric will be happy with this; keep us going for a few more days. Don't worry 'bout me boss, I'm going to stay here and make sure we don't run out anytime soon.


- You're a trooper. (missing miner dialogue)
Miner: Cheers boss. Anything else before you go?
- Don't you want to head back to the workshop?
Miner: Nah boss, mining's my thing see. I can't be doing with sitting in a hot workshop slaving away. Did you need anything else before you go?
- No.

Miner: No worries, boss. Just let me know when you're done. Anything else you wanted?


- How's it going?
Miner: Oh you know, I can't complain. I have a pickaxe and there's plenty of ore. What's to complain about?
- Keep up the good work.
Miner: Thank you, will do. Mining what I do; can't get enough of it. Point me to some ore and I'm there.
- Seen anything interesting?
Miner: Oh yes, I've seen plenty of exciting things around here today.
Player: does most of these exciting things involve rocks?
Miner: Of course, every rock is different, and it's a wonder to see what comes from each one.
Player: If you say so.

You receive 1,500 Mining XP and your Gofannon amulet has gained 4,500 charges.

Task 2

Player: Are you alright Boric?

Boric: I've just heard that one of our miners was attacked.

Player: Who would do such a thing?

Boric: It was a living rock brawler. The same type that attacked you when we first met.

Player: You think that wizard's behind this?

Boric: Aye, I do, he spoke about wanting to refine the spell. Would you clear the brawlers out of the mining sites again?


- We can't let anyone else get hurt.

Boric: Thank you. Take this note. IT has all the mining sites you need to visit. Oh, and please be discreet about my involvement in this. I don't want our workers to get the wrong impression.

- I'm actually quite busy.

Boric: Oh, well when you want to show some concern come back and speak to me again.

Player: Boric, I killed all the living rock creatures.

Boric: Thank you. You've done me a great service. Here, take this reward.

You receive 3,500 Mining XP and your Gofannon amulet has gained 10,500 charges.

Task 3

Boric: Exciting times are upon us! After a tough negotiation, I have managed to secure a deal with the Mining Guild themselves to provide us with all of the supplies we could ever need. Well, almost …

Player: Almost?

Boric: Well, they want a show of commitment before they give us supplies.


- What do we need to do?

Boric: The Guild would like to see the owners of the business – that's us – prove we're as happy to do the menial tasks as our workers. As I'm the brains behind the outfit and father needs to take it easy these days, you're the perfect choice!

Player: I'm starting to regret saying 'yes' …

Boric: Nonsense! Anyway, head back to the Mining Guild in Falador and bring back to me 15 coal and 10 mithril ore. That'll prove us an honourable company that can be trusted and our supply issues will be solved forever.

Player: * Sigh * Fine ...

- Can we talk about this later?

Boric: I guess it'll have to. It's quite important though so whenever you have time, do come and speak to me.

Player: Boric, I have those ores you wanted.

Boric: Great stuff! I've already had word from the guild; because of your hard work, they're willing to supply us with as much ore as we need from now on.

You receive 8,000 Mining XP and your Gofannon amulet has gained 24,000 charges.

Player: That's excellent!

Boric: Thank's to you, Doric & Son are an unstoppable force, ready to take over the world. Was there anything else you wanted? (returns to dialogue)
