Getting Started

To start this quest, speak to Sir Amik Varze in the White Knights' Castle. To get to him, go to the westernmost door and climb up two staircases. Upon talking to him, he will ask you to join a secret organization: the Temple Knights.

Sir Amik Varze: Quests, eh? Well, I don't have anything on the go at the moment, but there is an organization that is always looking for vapable adventurers to assist them.
[Your Character]: sure thing Sir Amik, sign me up!

Accept and he will tell you that he has already put your name forward and you are to start your training immediately. To start your training, head over to Falador Park and speak with Sir Tiffy Cashien.

Talk to Sir Tiffy

Head over to the Make Over Mage's house southwest of Falador and change your gender to female before entering the training.

The Makeover Mage's house


Head over to Falador Park and make sure you have nothing equipped or in your inventory. Once you are prepared, talk to Sir Tiffy Cashien. He'll ask you if you're ready to start training. Making sure you are completely prepared with nothing, respond, "Yes, let's go!" You will be taken to the secret training grounds. Upon arrival you will be taken to one of seven training rooms. Each person is taken to a random room. To complete the training, you will have to solve each room's puzzle - there is no particular order to the rooms.

Note: If you leave the training grounds during the training, everything will be reset and you will have to do every puzzle again.

Mrs. Hynn Terprett

Note: The Content Team is unsure if Mrs. Hynn Terprett still exists. If you run into her however, use the below:

Mrs. hynn Terprett

On arrival she will ask one of these questions:

Question: I dropped four identical stones, into four identical buckets, each containing an identical amount of water. The first bucket was at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the second was at 33 degrees, the third was at 34 and the fourth was at 35 degrees. Which bucket's stone dropped to the bottom of the bucket last?

Answer: The 32 degree bucket because the water is frozen.

Question: If you were sentenced to death, what would you rather choose, being thrown off a castle turret, drowned in a pool of acid, burned to death, or fed to wolves that haven't eaten in 30 days?

Answer: Wolves.

Question: The number of false statements here is one. The number of false statements here is two. The number of false statements here is three. The number of false statements here is four. How many false statements are there?

Answer: There are 3 false statements.

Question: A father is 4 times as old as his daughter. In 20 years he will be 2 times as old. How old is the daughter?

Answer: The daughter is ten.

Question: Counting the creatures and humans in RuneScape you get about a million inhabitants. If you multiply the fingers on everything's left hand by a million, how many would you get?

Answer: 0; you can't know how many fingers each creature has.

Lady Table

Pick out the statue that has been added

When you arrive at Lady Table's room, you will be presented with a memory challenge. The basic challenge is to find the statue that has been added to the room. Before the statue is added, you have 10 seconds to memorize the 11 present statues. After those 10 seconds have elapsed, the screen will black out and a twelfth statue will have been added. Your job is to find that statue. If memory fails, you can always take a screenshot of the 11 statues. The trick to this room is to find the set of statues that only has three statues. Each set of statues is either wielding a great axe, a halberd, a mace, or a sword pointing downwards. Find the odd one out, touch it, and move on.

Sir Kuam Ferentse

This is the room where you must be a female to complete the challenge.

Sir Kuam Ferentse tells you that no man can defeat Sir Leye (yeah, this was totally taken out of Lord of the Rings). Sir Leye is level 10 and all that you have to do is defeat him. For lower levels, defeating Sir Leye can take some time. During the fight, it might be a good idea to put in another load of laundry or something of that sort.

fighting Sir Leye

Once complete, move on. 

Sir Ren Itchood

Circling the first letter of each line spells "FISH"

Sir Ren Itchood will give you riddle and all you have to do is look at the first letter in the each sentence. Once finished, click on the door and move the knobs to the correct letter.

Sir Spishyus

A Fox, Chicken, and a sack of Grain

Ah...the classic Fox, Grain, Chicken puzzle. Follow these steps, and it will be over in no time. Don't forget that you can only take one item over the bridge each time.

  1. Pick up the chicken and take it to the other side and drop it. This leaves the Fox with the Grain; it will not eat the Grain.
  2. Go back, take the Grain up, go back over, drop the Grain and pick up the Chicken.
  3. Take the chicken over to the start and drop the Chicken. Then pick up the Fox.
  4. Go to the other side, drop the Fox next to the Grain.
  5. Go to the Chicken, pick it up and drop it at the other side.
  6. Challenge complete!

Miss Cheevers

Miss Cheevers' room
Miss Cheevers: I should also warn you that there are limited supplies of the items in this room...

Firstly, search all the Shelves and take everything you can. Then search all the Crates and take everything. Take the Gypsum and use it on the Cake Tin. Find a Vial of Liquid and use it on the cake tin and it will form a key mould. Take the tin and use it on the key that is chained to the west wall and you will get a key imprint. After that, pour Cupric Ore Powder (one is a powder and one is a liquid; use the powder) and some Tin Ore Powder on the Key Imprint in your Tin.

Once finished, use the tin on the Bunsen Burner. After this, use the chisel on the Tin to create a Bronze Key. Now pick up a Metal Spade and use it on the Bunsen Burner. Use the newly formed spade with the Stone Door. After that, pour all your chemicals, except for the Vial of Liquid, onto the Spade. Finally, use the Vial of Liquid on the Spade which will expand allowing you to open the door. Once through, use the Bronze Key on the door and enter the portal.

Sir Tinley

This is the easiest room by far; all you have to do is not move for 15 seconds and wait until he says you can pass on.

Completing the Quest

Once you have finished all the five challenges, you will be teleported back to Falador Park. Speak with Tiffy the receive your rewards. Quest complete!

Congratulations! You have completed the Recruitment Drive Quest!
