|Location(s)||Mage Training Arena basement|
|Examine||He's a bit uptight.|
Wizard Dougal is a wizard who helped rebuild the Mage Training Arena. He used his Runecrafting expertise to resurrect the rune guardians. He used five body, steam and mind runes to give the guardians movement and free will.
He is rather arrogant and egotistical. He considers everybody else at the arena to be useless and believes he is the only one who does any actual work. He considers himself to be brilliant at his discipline of Runecrafting, despite the rather low requirements needed to actually craft the runes. If challenged, he demands to see whether his challenger is as good as he is. However, if an apprentice appeals to his ego, he acts friendlier.
- ^ Apprentice Clerval, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "All the wizards who helped rebuild the Mage Training Arena are still working here. There's Wizard Shug – he's usually asleep in the library – Wizard Dougal next door, and Wizard Edvin at the other end of the basement."
- ^ Wizard Dougal, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "Oh, they were. We needed five of each to act as magical commands for the rune guardians. The body runes animated the limbs, the steam runes gave the limbs propulsion to move the body, and the mind runes gave the guardians thoughts and free will. They wouldn't have been resurrected without my input."
- ^ Wizard Dougal, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "Not another one. Don't you useless apprentices have anything better to do than bother me? First that bumbling Clerval and now you. Unlike the rest of the layabouts around here, I am actually trying to work!"
- ^ Wizard Dougal, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "What 'part' I played? I didn't play a 'part', I did all the hard work! The other wizards just sat around 'thinking'."
- ^ Wizard Dougal, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "It was very difficult! Only a first-class runecrafter, such as myself, could possibly have pulled it off. I doubt you would be capable."
- ^ Player character, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "I could craft them in my sleep! I could craft so many it would make your head spin!"
- ^ Wizard Dougal, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "Oh, yeah? Let's see you do it, then we'll see who's the best runecrafter. I'll even make it easy and give you the supplies. But you have to craft them yourself: I'll be able to tell if you didn't!"
- ^ Wizard Dougal, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "Well, I don't mind helping you. You're polite, unlike the other low lifes here. I'll give you the supplies and then you can show me how you got along once you've done it."
- ^ Wizard Dougal, "Rune Mechanics", RuneScape. "Are you keeping tabs on me for Wizard Edvin? I KNEW IT! He's trying to steal my ideas. Well, I've had it up to here with his arrogance! Stop spying on me...and get out!"
