Head mourner: How did you get into West Ardougne? Ah well you'll have to stay, can't risk you spreading the plague outside.
So what's a mourner?
Player: So what's a mourner?
Head mourner: We're working for King Lathas of East Ardougne trying to contain the accursed plague sweeping West Ardougne. We also do our best to ease these people's suffering. We're nicknamed mourners because we spend a lot of time at plague victim funerals, no-one else is allowed to risk the funerals. It's a demanding job, and we get little thanks from the people here.
I haven't got the plague though.
Player: I haven't got the plague though.
Head mourner: Can't risk you being a carrier. That protective clothing you have isn't regulation issue. It won't meet safety standards.
If you are wearing full Mourner gear as well as select non-Mourner items Edit
Head mourner: Ahh... A new recruit.
Player: How do you know I'm new?
Head mourner: Because all the old members of the guard know to report to the real Head Mourner, not me. Also, none of the old timers use non-regulation gear.
Player: You're not the real overseer here?
Head mourner: No, I am just a front man, our true head is far too busy to deal with the requests of the citizens, so I conduct the day to day business here.
Head mourner: You should go and report in, I would lose the non-regulation gear as well if I were you.
