Retain After Quest?
Must have started The Lost Tribe.
Where Found:
Found on a bookcase in Varrock Castle Library.
Item Uses:
Read to learn Goblin symbols that help you reach the Dorgeshuun mines.
Match the symbols in the book to the symbols on the Lumbridge Cellar Caves walls to safely navigate to the Dorgeshuun Mines.

If lost or destroyed, a new copy can be obtained from the bookcase in your Player-Owned House made through Construction.

When in your bookcase, this text is called A History of the Goblin Race.

Below is the text you can read from within the book.
Goblin tradition holds that their race was created by a war-god in order to fight a war against other gods.

(They never name their god, so whether it is the same as any of the gods worshipped by the other races is unknown.)

The legends also speak of goblins fighting against goblins during the wars, so it is likely that gods other than their creators used them as footsoldiers.

Although goblins are still warlike, in earlier ages they were more organised than they are now, especially if they were under the direct command of one or more gods.

This is corroborated by finds unearthed at various archaeological sites, including the large excavation east of Varrock.

Armour and weapons have been found, obviously made to fit goblins but far more well-made than their current equipment.

Almost every piece of ancient goblin equipment has one of a number of symbols on it, and by correlating these symbols with the sketchy records that survive from the Third Age it has been possible to identify twelve distinct goblin tribes or regiments.

The separate identities of the tribes have long since dissolved and no goblins remember the symbols, although their generals may still recognise the ancient tribal names. In the following pages I present a list of the tribes and their symbols.
