Once you are in, navigate through the doors (while answering security questions) till you reach the ladder descending to the second level. (See map with suggest route below) Note that, while you are on this first level you are safe from attack so long as you do not click on or attack any of the monsters found within! Once you reach the ladder to the next floor down, click it and accept the risks in the warning you will see. Note: You will still be safe from attack only in the first area you come to at the bottom of this ladder.

Welcome to 2009Scape wiki!

This is a community wiki written and maintained by the community. Please help expand the wiki, especially if you can help document the differences between 2009scape and RuneScape as it was in January 2009. We are seeking original and new 2009scape content, please don't copy paste irrelevant OSRS/RS3 content.

This is to take the place of the original requirement of having 50 Kudos which requires a Quest and options not available here as of this writing (9 October 2023).
Note that if you have not already completed the Dragon Slayer Quest this might be a good opportunity to also produce an Unfired bowl for use in that Quest.
Note: there may be alternate locations in which to do this including other locations in the palace as well as continuing up the staircase past the spot “15” where you speak with Elsie.
