Istoria is the chief historian and curator at the Library Historical Archive in the Arceuus House. She will guide players to other NPCs if they ask about certain subjects about Great Kourend's history.


  • Istoria: Welcome to the Grand Library Historical Archive.
  • Player: What is this place?
    • Istoria: This is the Historical Archive of Great Kourend. Here you'll find documents and texts from all eras of Great Kourend's history, dating all the way back to the first decade.
    • Istoria: We store the most important texts here for further study and additional protection.
    • Istoria: Are you looking for something in particular?
    • Player: What information do you have on Xeric?
      • Istoria: Ah, Xeric, our most infamous ruler... We do have extensive records regarding Xeric; you can examine some of the texts here or speak to Ektheme, our Xerician expert.
      • Istoria: Is there something else I can help you with?
    • Player: What can you tell me about the Wintertodt?
      • Istoria: Wintertodt, or the Winter beast as it was known at the time, terrorised northern Kourend for five decades. Logios is currently studying the Wintertodt Invasion, and we have various texts from that era.
      • Istoria: Is there something else I can help you with?
    • Player: What can you tell me about Mount Quidamortem?
      • Istoria: Our first records of the Mountain date back to the mid-thirty-sixth decade where a Shayzien patrol discovered the mountain during a survey of the western lands. King Shayzien VII was keen on conquering more land for Kourend and demanded his people explore suitable territories.
      • Istoria: The mountain became known as Mount Quidamortem some decades later, after it was realised venturing towards the summit resulted in certain death.
      • Istoria: Gnosi is our expert on Mount Quidamortem but I'm afraid she's currently on an expedition to the Temple near the summit of the mountain. However we do have some texts available detailing the great expedition.
      • Istoria: Is there something else I can help you with?
  • Player: What do you do here?
    • Istoria: My name is Istoria. I'm the chief historian and curator of the historical archive.
  • Player: How do I get out of here?
    • Istoria: I can teleport you back to the Grand Library. Would you like to leave now?
    • Player: Yes please.
    • Player: No thanks.
  • Player: Goodbye.
