Getting Started

To start the quest, you will need to head over to Redbeard Frank. He is south of the Rusty Anchor Bar in Port Sarim. Tell him you are in search of treasure, and he will tell you where to find some - for a price.

Redbeard Frank

He would like you to get him some rum. However, he doesn't want just any old rum; he wants the one-and-only Karamja Rum. Tell him you will get some for him and head south to the Customs Officers. Then pay one of them 30 gold to go to Karamja.

Buying the Rum

Once in Karamja, head west to find Zambo, who owns the bar.


Buy some Karamja Rum from his shop for 30gp. Now, you will need to smuggle the bottle of rum off the island, as the Customs Officers will prevent you from boarding the ship while carrying it.

Warning: Do not try to teleport while carrying the Karamja Rum because the bottle will break, and you will need to obtain another.

To do this, first head northwest to find Luthas. Talk to him about a job; he will tell you that he will pay you 30 gold if you fill a crate of bananas for him. This sounds like a good opportunity to smuggle your contraband off the island...


West of Luthas' house is his Banana Plantation, where you will find lots of Banana Trees. Simply pick ten Bananas from them.

Pick Banana Tree

Now fill the crate beside Lathas' building with the ten Bananas, and then place the Karamja Rum inside.

Use Karamja Rum with Crate

Once the crate is packed with the ten bananas and the bottle of Karamja Rum, speak to Luthas again to tell him that the crate is ready to be shipped. Now, leave the island again by paying one of the Custom Officers.

Finding the Rum

Once you arrive back at Port Sarim, you will need to collect the Karamja Rum from the crate, which is now located in the back room of Wydin's Grocery Store. for this part, you will need to wear a White Apron. A White Apron is hanging up in the northeast corner of the Fishing Shop - take it and equip it.

Take White Apron

Now head over to Wydin's Grocery Store located southeast of the Customs Officers. While wearing your White Apron, ask him for a job, and he will say that he could use some help in the back room. 


Go into the back room of the Wydin's store, search the crate, and reclaim the Karamja Rum.

Finding the Treasure

Give the rum to Redbeard Frank, and he will give you Hector's chest key. He says the chest is in the Blue Moon Inn. The Blue Moon Inn is the bar southeast of the Varrock Fountain.

The chest is located upstairs, in the room in the southeast corner. Use the key on the chest and you will see a message:

"Visit the city of the White Knights. In the park, Saradomin points to the X which marks the spot."

Search the Chest in the Blue Moon Inn

This is a description of Falador Park -- time to do some digging! So, head to Falador and take the Spade from the Estate Agent's house located east of the Furnace building. In the middle of the park, you will see a statue. To the west, you will see an X made from the dirt path.

The location of the treasure in the falador park

Dig there and a disgruntled level four Gardener will yell at you and attack you (after all, you're vandalizing his garden!). He only has 70 Life Points, so he shouldn't be a problem. Once you kill him, dig again to receive a chest.

Digging up the buried treasure
