  4. Equip the Ghostspeak amulet and head back downstairs. Talk to the Gardener Ghost at the backyard of the castle. Ask him what happened to his head. He will tell you that one day someone chopped off his head when he was digging a new grave. Offer to help him find his head. For 10 minutes he will follow you telling in which direction to go.

  5. Head to the Haunted Woods east of Canifis. A few steps east of the fairy ring, you will find a few graves. Read them until you find the grave belonging to Ed "Lestwit" ( The grave is just a simple pile of sticks). Dig the grave using a Spade to obtain a Decapitated head.

  6. Go back to the house and search the bookcases upstairs in the northwest and northeast rooms near the staircases. At the northwest bookcase choose the book "The Joy of Gravedigging". At the northeast bookcase choose "Handy Maggot Avoidance Techniques". This bookcase also includes "Chimney Sweeping on a Budget". Get the two triangular amulets (Marble and Obsidian) and then use them on each other. You will get a star.

  7. Exit the castle and go directly east on a path to the memorials on the grounds of the castle. Use the star with the unmovable grave to the far east.

    Fenkenstrain

  8. Push the memorial to reveal a staircase. Climb down and you'll be in a cavern. Kill a level 51 experiment creature to get a cavern key.

    Fenkenstrain

  9. Take the northwest (middle) passage and open the gate. Go up the stairs and you will now be on the island on the other side of the broken bridge. Dig up all three graves to get a torso, arms, and legs.

    Fenkenstrain

  10. Go back to Canifis and talk to Roavar in the pub and say you want something to eat. He will sell you a pickled brain for 50 gp. Use it with the head. You can bank your spade. Get your Needle, 5 Thread, 3 Bronze wire and your Ghostspeak amulet (optional: bring runes or item to teleport to a furnace and your Silver bar).

    Fenkenstrain

  11. Go back and give all the parts to Fenkenstrain. He will tell you to get a needle and some thread. Give him the needle and thread and he will then ask you to fix the conductor. To do this you will need a conductor mould, a silver bar, and a garden brush.

  12. To get the garden brush, equip your Ghostspeak amulet and talk to the Gardener (he is located to the north of Dr Fenkenstrain). Ask him for the shed key and then search the cupboard in the shed.

    Fenkenstrain

  13. To get the conductor mould, pick up 3 canes from the pile beside the shed. Next, use the garden brush with the canes and you will get an extended brush. Go back into the castle and head upstairs. Go to the west side of the castle and use the extended brush on the fireplace and the conductor mould will fall out.

    Fenkenstrain

  14. Take the conductor mould and a silver bar to any furnace (nearest furnace is Port Phasmatys, 2 ecto tokens will be needed to enter), use the silver bar on a furnace to make a conductor. Go back to Fenkenstrain's Castle and climb upstairs, go to the room furthest south and climb to the roof. Use the conductor on the lightning rod to fix it.

    Fenkenstrain

  15. Go back to Fenkenstrain and he will give you the key to the tower and tell you that the monster has turned against him. He orders you to kill it.

  16. Go upstairs to the north-center room, then go upstairs to the Monster and have a long talk with him. You will find out he used to own the castle and Fenkenstrain was the doctor. He then tells you to stop the doctor's experiments.

    Fenkenstrain

  17. Pickpocket Fenkenstrain to get the Ring of Charos to finish the quest.

    Congratulations! Quest Complete!
