The Death Plateau is an elevated plane located in the southern Troll Country. The Trolls have taken up camp on the plateau, using it to launch raids at night on the nearby village of Burthorpe. In the Death Plateau quest the player is asked by Denulth, head of the Burthorpe Imperial Guard, to find another way up to the plateau, as the main path is heavily guarded. Several Thrower trolls watch the pass and attack any trespassers.
The more dangerous route can be taken by following the main path up the plateau, however due to a large amount of Thrower trolls guarding this route it is recommended to use Protect from Missiles or to take the longer route. Also if your prayer is lower then 40, you can use a Fremennik Round Shield to lower damage to about 10-20 life points.
There is a very large number of Trolls on the Plateau, these include; Thrower Trolls, Mountain Trolls, and several higher ranking trolls. At the centre of the Plateau lies a gigantic Cooking pot where many unlucky adventurers and soldiers have met their ends. The Cooking pot is maintained by Ash and Dung, two troll cooks who often argue about the best methods of cooking humans for lunch.
Players who received a troll Slayer task often come here with a cannon, as it guarantees quick experience while being able to hide behind the tents there.
The plateau plays a part in the following quests:
- Sometimes when a troll attacks the player while he/she is climbing the cliffside in the route to God Wars Dungeon, the player appears to climb air like the cliff. He/she will be placed on top of the cliff, anyway.
