1. The Dwarf's Love
Items Required: None
Items Suggested: Charged Amulet of Glory

Dororan the dwarf poet is hunched on the ground at the Barbarian Village gate, west of Varrock. He will tell you that he is in love with one of the Barbarian women but he doesn't have any of the things that the barbarians value. It doesn't matter which poetic line you choose, nor whether or not you say you're a poet. Offer to help him and he will ask you to visit Jeffery in Edgeville to obtain a gold ring for him to present as a gift. He will also give you a poem to take to Jeffery.

Bring the ring to Dororan and he will ask you to engrave it for him. If you don't have a chisel with you he'll provide you with one. Use the chisel on the ring to engrave it. Speak to Dororan once you've engraved the ring.

Dororan will ask you to show the ring to Gudrun for him but not tell her that he's a dwarf quite yet. Find Gudrun in the Barbarian Village just South of the mining rocks. Tell her that the ring is for her and that it is not from you but from a great poet. Gudrun will become interested but tell you that her father forbids her from seeing a man from outside the village. Offer to speak to her father for her.

Find Gudrun's father, Chieftain Gunthor in the hall at the northern end of the Barbarian Village. He will tell you that he will not allow it and praise Gunnar the founder of the village.

Return to Dororan and tell him the news, he will suggest that he write a historical poem to touch the heart of the chieftain. As Dororan starts to write his poem he will get stuck and ask you to help. He'll provide you with a list of words and tell you which one works best in the poem. Take note that you cannot choose the right word until you have chosen an incorrect word. The answers are listed below.
