|Release date||9 May 2005 (Update)|
|Quest NPC?||The Temple at Senntisten|
|Examine|| Wonder how long he's been here...|
|Notable features||Caretaker of the barrows.|
The Strange Old Man can be found digging in the Barrows mounds. As his title suggests, he is a very peculiar individual with an obsession for digging, often saying strange things. During The Temple of Senntisten, he assists in recovering the icon guarded by the six brothers. He also sent a scroll containing The Fall of Six to Reldo, found in the Lores and Histories section. Occasionally a crumbling tome may be received when the man is talked to. He has recently put spades to the Barrows mounds, which can be helpful for completing the Barrows minigame.
- After having completed the quest Spirit of Summer, if a player talks to the Strange Old Man whilst wearing Jennica's ring then they will have a conversation with him, where he laments about Jennica, and begins talking about digging.
