To Start:
Speak to Jorral
  1. Talk to Jorral. He will tell you about the history of the outpost and will ask you to visit 3 persons:
    • Erin the silver merchant in Ardougne
    • Droalak the ghost in Port Phasmatys
    • Dron the warrior in Relekka (brother of Blanin)
    Step 1

  2. Talk to Erin, the Silver merchant, in East Ardougne. He will tell you about his great grandfather, and that he has an Enchanted key. Ask him if you can borrow it and he will agree. The key changes temperature as you walk.

    Step 2

  3. Head over to Castle Wars and cross both of the bridges to the North until you are around 4 steps North from the East side of the second bridge. As soon as you feel that the Enchanted key is steaming, take out your spade and dig to find a Chest. Use the Enchanted key to open it and you will find a Journal.

    Step 3

  4. Now, head to Rellekka and talk to Blanin next to the Cow pen, South-East of the Longhall and he will tell you the following:
    • Dron wields an iron mace in battle,
    • eats rats for breakfast,
    • kittens for lunch,
    • bunnies for tea,
    • his favorite drink is red spider blood,
    • he's 36 years, 8 months and 21 days old,
    • studies the famous 4th and 5th age battles,
    • he lives on the North-East side of the town,
    • his brother is Blanin,
    • his pet is called Fluffy,
    • 5+7 is 12.
    Step 5

  5. Talk to Dron who is just North-West of the helmet shop. Say, "I am after important answers." Tell him that he is famous, then answer all the questions he asks with the answers noted above. Once you have successfully answered all the questions, he will tell you all that he knows about the Ardougne Outpost.

    Step 4

  6. Make your way to Port Phasmatys. Once there, equip your Ghostspeak amulet and talk to Droalak South of the general store. Droalak will inform you that he has a timeline of the outpost written down on a Scroll in his possession. He will only give you the Scroll if you make Melina a Sapphire amulet.

    Note: If you have completed Ghosts Ahoy, you can use an Ectophial to teleport to the Ectofuntus North of Port Phasmatys and enter the city free of charge. If you have not completed this quest, you can pay the guards 2 Ecto-tokens to enter or charter a ship to Port Phasmatys.

    Step 7

  7. Head over to the house slightly North-East of the general store, and give the Sapphire amulet to Melina. She will feel complete and will disappear.

    Step 8

  8. Return to Droalak and tell him the good news. He thanks you and gives you the Scroll.

  9. When you have spoken to all 3 people, return to Jorral. He will give you a Letter to be delivered to King Lathas.

  10. Head over to East Ardougne Castle and talk to King Lathas on the second floor. He will read the Letter and agree with the museum plans and give you another Letter.

    Step 10

  11. Take this Letter back to Jorral. He will read it, turn the outpost into a museum (which contains a book mentioning your name), and give you your reward.

    Congratulations! Quest complete!

    Quest Complete

    Note: You may return to Droalak and tell him that you delivered his scroll. He will then be able to rest in peace with his wife. After the quest, you may talk to Erin again and start the Enchanted Key miniquest. You can add the Enchanted key to your Steel key ring (reward from One Small Favour).
