The Drunken Dwarf is an intoxicated dwarf who wanders Gielinor giving Kebabs and beer to adventurers who talk to him, and then proceeds to teleport away to other places. He is a former RuneScape Random Event, and has a number of quest and miniquest appearances.

Depending on the player's choices in Birthright of the Dwarves, they can help the true heir to the throne, and the Drunken Dwarf becomes the King of Keldagrim, being crowned King Drunken Dwarf III. He can then be found at the top of Keldagrim Palace.

AppearancesEdit

QuestsEdit

Forgettable Tale of a Drunken DwarfEdit

The Drunken Dwarf is seen in the final cutscene of the Forgettable Tale of a Drunken Dwarf quest. After the quest, if you see the dwarf and talk to him, he will speak of your "kebab stories" from the end of the quest and give you your beer and kebab as normal.

Swan SongEdit

During Swan Song, the Drunken Dwarf is seen harassing the Wise Old Man outside of the Jalsavrah pyramid, where he was subsequently vaporized by the Wise Old Man.

My Arm's Big AdventureEdit

During the My Arm's Big Adventure quest, the Drunken Dwarf will wander too close to the goutweed that My Arm is attempting to grow and will be thrown off a mountain. A nameless newborn troll then attempts to eat his leg, earning the name Drunken Dwarf's Leg.

Birthright of the DwarvesEdit

When Hreidmar, the rightful heir to the Keldagrim throne, is killed by an adventurer in the assault on the Red Axe stronghold, Veldaban is corrupted by his spell, and begins to turn into a Chaos dwarf. If the adventurer kills Veldaban or removes him from power, they can then tell the Consortium to yield their power the true heir to the dwarven throne; Meike discovers that the Drunken Dwarf is the heir to the throne. He is originally crowned as 'King <his name>', but during the post-coronation party he becomes too inebriated to even remember his own name; at his own request, he is thus crowned as 'King Drunken Dwarf'.

OtherEdit

Court CasesEdit

The Drunken Dwarf is a participant in the Court Cases Distraction and Diversion, in the case of the Drunken Dwarf versus Botros. In the case he is alleged to have assaulted the character Botros whilst skilling; it is up to the player to decide whether to prosecute on behalf of Botros or defend the drunken dwarf. For completing the case the player will be rewarded with 5000 attack xp for prosecuting or 5000 defence xp for defending the drunken dwarf.

The case also gives the additional reward of 20 gold ore and a kebab. It does not matter whether or not the player prosecutes or defends; they will still receive the additional reward.

Random event (discontinued)Edit

As a random event, he would occasionally appear and talk to players. If the player responded, the dwarf would give them a kebab and a beer. If the player ignored him, he would throw rocks at the player which hit a max of 2 hitpoints, (the equivalent of about 200 lifepoints) capable of hitting through even the Protect from Missiles prayer. He would not stop unless the player talked to him.

He could be killed using a combative familiar (if you were in multicombat), and upon death would just drop regular bones.

It was widely disputed that this random event was unfair, because if the player lagged, they would most likely have died as a result.

Quotes:

  • 'Ere, matey, 'ave some 'o the good stuff.
  • Dun ignore your matey!
  • I hates you [insert player's name]!
  • Aww comeon, talk to ikle me [insert player's name]!

If the player died or logged out, the Dwarf would exclaim:

  • Aw me is all alone... and disappear.

LocationsEdit

When wandering the world, he can be found in many places. The locations he can be found at include:

Drunken Dwarf wave

The Drunken dwarf greets the player.

A short while after he has given the player a Beer and Kebab (except for Battle of Lumbridge where he gives Beer, Kebab and 5 Divine Tears), he will teleport away.

DialogueEdit

TriviaEdit

  • If the Drunken Dwarf killed the player near their respawn point, such as Lumbridge, he would continue to attack them once they respawned.
  • In Swan Song, the Drunken Dwarf is revealed to have 400 life points.
  • When the Drunken Dwarf appeared the player would hear a unique whistling sound. This was an easy way to notice a Drunken Dwarf immediately if the player was doing a task that doesn't require full attention such as Woodcutting or Fishing.
Drunken Dwarf on Tutorial Island

The Drunken Dwarf "evicts" a player that has glitched their way onto Tutorial Island

  • Though most non-chaos dwarves still alive are incapable of casting magic or are not willing to use magic beyond casting Superheat Item, the Drunken Dwarf appears capable of teleporting all over Gielinor, and even into pocket dimensions not really part of Gielinor, such as those containing the Runecrafting Altars (not utilising the conventional means used to reach there).
  • In the Evolution of Combat beta, a bug allowed players to walk to Tutorial Island. The Drunken Dwarf was placed on the island by Jagex to remove the players that had reached the Island, by throwing a beer at them, which teleported them to Lumbridge.
