Talk to Duke Horacio on the 1st floor[?] of Lumbridge Castle, and ask him if he has any quests to give out. He will explain that although he himself has no tasks for the player, he did find a strange talisman. Curious about its origin, he will give you an air talisman and ask you to bring it to the arch mage of the Wizards' Tower.

Go to the Wizards' Tower, which is south of Draynor Village. Once there, descend the ladder into the basement and converse with Wizard Sedridor. He will take your air talisman and give you a Research package. He will then instruct you to deliver it to Aubury in Varrock.

Aubury is located south of Varrock's east bank, inside of his rune shop. Talk to Aubury twice, and he will give you some notes and instruct you to deliver them back to Wizard Sedridor.

Make your way back to the Wizards' Tower, and talk to Wizard Sedridor once more. He will give you back your air talisman and will explain to you the basics of Runecrafting.

Congratulations, quest complete!
