Start Point:
Near the bridge at the Barbarian Village.
To Start:
Speak to Dororan the dwarf.
  1. Head to the Barbarian Village, west of Varrock, and talk to Dororan the dwarf, sitting near the bridge. He will tell you that he is in love with a barbarian maid but does not have any of the things that the barbarians value. He will then ask you to visit Edgeville's blacksmith, Jeffery, to trade one of his Love poem for a ring of pure gold. Agree to help him.

    Note: The easiest way to reach the Barbarian Village is by using the Skull sceptre's teleport option or by using the Amulet of glory (4) to teleport Edgeville and then walking south to the village.


  2. Head north to Edgeville and speak to Jeffery at the furnace about the gold ring. Give him the Love poem in exchange for a Ring from jeffery.


  3. Return to Dororan, who now will ask you to engrave a phrase on the ring using a Chisel. Use the Chisel on the Ring from jeffery to create Dororan's engraved ring. Show him the ring and he will ask that you take it to Gudrun.

    Note: If you forgot to bring a Chisel, then Dororan will provide you with one.

  4. Wandering around near the center of the Barbarian Village, you will find Gudrun. She will tell you that she would love to run off with an outerlander, however her father, the chieftain, would never let her. Offer to talk to Chieftain Gunthor about her situation.


  5. Enter the village pub to the north and speak with Chieftain Gunthor to discover that he is not happy about his daughter's request. Return to Gudrun and inform her about what her father has said.

  6. Report back to Dororan and he will decide to write a poem for the chieftain. However, he will need your help to come up with the right words. Pick a random word from the list. Listen to his hints and pick a word or phrase that fits the description. The first word is "stray," the second word is "threat," and the final phrase is "swept to war."

  7. Take the completed poem, Gunnar's ground, to Gudrun and she will recite it to her father. Chieftain Gunthor will like it so much that he will make Dororan the village bard and give him the house east of the village. Dororan will give you your reward and urge you to come visit him and Gudrun some time.

    Congratulations! Quest Complete!
