Getting Started

Start by speaking to Jorral in the Outpost northwest of West Ardougne.

Talk to Jorral
Location of jorral

Ask if there is anything else you can help him with. He tells you that the key you received in Making History might have more uses than originally assumed. Of course, lucky-you get to investigate.

Enchanted keyNotesJorral hands you the Enchanted Key Notes. If you have finished the Enchanted Key Mini-Quest I, or have destroyed the key you received during Making History (which is used to complete the mini-quest), the notes Jorral gives you will have the Enchanted Key attached. Otherwise, retrieve your Enchanted Key from the bank to continue your investigations.

The notes:

Scraps of info on the enchanted key

Before you leave however, Jorral tells you that you can not have any items with you when rubbing the key, so offers to bank all your equipped and non-equipped items.

Back to the Past

As soon as you leave the Outpost, head East towards the River that extends through Ardougne.

This is the exact spot where you need to stand:

This is where you should stand

Once you have arrived at this destination, rub the key. You will then shout the words 'Predem abducto!' and teleport using the key's mysterious powers.

Being teleported

Wait... Where Exactly Did You Say I Am?

Upon arriving at this mysterious new area, you will be introduced with a cutscene showing a nearby farm.

A farm

Head towards the farm and speak to Laura, who is currently building a shed.

Runescape. Then this must be... the past?

If you aren't the brightest tool in the shed (no pun intended) and haven't figured it out already, you are currently standing in past Runescape.

I went back in time; back before Ardougne even existed!

Rub the key to return to the present and return to the Outpost to tell Jorral what happened. Before you leave, he tells you to try rubbing different parts of the key... Sounds reasonable. So head back over to the river (in the same spot you teleported from) and rub the key. A box opens allowing you to choose between Past A, Past B and the Present.

Where do you want to rub the key?

For now, head to Past A by rubbing the tooth part of the key.

Sarah & Roger

Standing back in past Runescape again, head over towards the farm. Feel free to talk to Laura again, although she is not particularly helpful just yet.

Laura: Look, I'm busy with this here shed...

Head inside and speak to Roger. He tells you he's trying to calm down his daughter, Baby Sarah.

Roger: She won't stop crying.

Nosy-you decide to intervene.

Now rub the key and go to Past B. Go in the backyard (where the plant seedlings used to be) and talk to Sarah, who is no longer a baby. She explains a vital piece of information to you.

Sarah
Sarah: That's better - milk, honey and guam.

With these items in mind, go back to Past A once more.

A table

GuamBucket of milkPestleHead inside the house, go to one of the side tables. Collect one of each item: Guam, Bucket of milk and Pestle and mortar.

Shelves

BowlTo your left are some shelves. Go to one and take a Bowl.

Beehive

HoneyMilk and honeyNow go into the backyard again and use your Bowl with the Beehive to collect some Honey . Use the Honey with the Bucket of milk to make a Bowl of milk and honey.

Ground guamMilk, honey, and guamGrind the Guam with your Pestle and mortar to create Ground guam . Proceeding onwards, add the Ground guam to the Bowl of milk and honey to create a Bowl of milk, honey and guam.

Use this with Baby Sarah in the next room. A cutscene follows.

Roger: She stopped crying!

Now that you have helped Roger, he offers to help you out. You ask where he comes from and another cutscene is displayed.

Roger soon explains that his family first arrived on Runescape through a magic portal.

Roger: Have you hit your head?

Before arriving in Runescape, Roger's family, as well as many other people, lived in a land without the monsters and strange laws of physics that engulf the land of Runescape.

Roger: On our plane, there are a great many people...

When finished talking to Roger, head out to the front yard and talk to Jack. After you have talked to him, rub your key and head off to Past B.

Jack

After arriving in Past B, speak to Jack, who is no longer the ambitious young boy of Past A.

Jack

Pick the option 'Not too busy to have your mind read!'. Continue through the dialogue and answer the questions as shown below:

Question: You wanted to be known as...
Answer: Super Jack the Fantasmic.

Question: You started with...
Answer: Cosmic, mind, body and fire runes.

Question: You got the runes from...
Answer: Misalionar.

Question: You started learning magic when you were...
Answer: Seven.

Question: You started to learn by...
Answer: Trying to create fire.

Question: You hoped to...
Answer: Create chocolate cakes.

Question: You wanted to use your new powers for...
Answer: Good.

Question: And you favorite flavor of milk is...
Answer: Strawberry.

Jack commends you for "reading his mind" but asks you to find out why the trees his mother planted in the backyard never grew.

Jack: My mother planted trees behind our house...

Speak to Sarah in the backyard. She explains what you need to do next.

Sarah
Sarah: If we had fruit I wouldn't feel so ill all the time...

So head over to Past A and grab the spade lying on the ground, as well as these pots (you only need to click on the pile once).

Pots and a spade

SeedlingNow dig up each seedling and they will automatically be planted in each of the six pots .

Seedling

Replant each seedling in the following order by using them on each fruit tree patch. They are in alphabetical, clockwise order, if that makes it easier to remember.

Click for a full-sized image.

Now head back over to Past B and check that the trees have grown properly. They should look like this:

Click for a full-sized image.

Speak to Sarah again, who tells you the trees have been growing well since they were planted years before. Go over and speak with Jack, who tells you how he knew about runes as a child.

Jack: When I was a kid, some druids discovered runes...

He explains that when he was a child, a druid discovered runes supposedly created by Guthix. Ever since, people have harnessed their powers and created more magic spells. Alas, the name 'Runescape' is created.

Laura

After speaking to Jack, talk to Laura, now an old woman lurking around nearby. After you have finished shouting at her, she will explain that she wishes she could have been more adventurous when she was young.

Laura: I didn't know where to start or what to expect.

CharcoalPapyrusMap of runescapeTime to make a treasure map. Head back to Past A and collect some Charcoal and Papyrus from one of the shelves inside the house. Use the two items together to create a Map of Runescape.

Talk to Laura and you will give her the map. She says she will use it to explore, which is great because now you can talk to her future self in Past B (obviously this means go there now).

Upon arriving, speak to Laura. You find out that she has done plenty of exploring in her life, after all. But she has only one regret:

Laura: Just the one

BroochSo head on over to Past A once again and go inside the house. Search the bedside table to take the Brooch.

A mound of dirt - where the brooch is buried.
You bury the brooch under the soil...

Head outside with the Brooch in your possession. Use it with the Soil mound.

Now you may travel to Past B. Click on the Soil mound once you arrive.

The brooch is probably still buried in the soil...

Grab a Spade from the shed next to you.

Take a spade from the shed

Dig up the Brooch from the Soil mound and speak to Laura.

Laura explains that when her family first came to Runescape, they were greeted by Guthix. Although she fails to mention the involvement of any of the other gods.

Laura: I don't know everything, but I picked up a lot about the gods...

Use the key to tele back to the present. Head over to the Outpost and speak to Jorral.

Congratulations, quest complete!
