|Start point||The Keldagrim mines east of Rellekka and north of the mountain camp. Follow the dwarven statues to the underground river.|
|Description||Five hundred years have passed since the rule of King Alvis, saviour of Keldagrim and victim of his own inventions.
He founded the Consortium: the gathering of Mining companies that were to serve the monarchy. But, eventually, the monarchy came to serve the Consortium.
By the time of his death, the monarchy was all but abolished. Now the Kings in Keldagrim are but a distant memory... with only the statue of King Alvis to remind the people of the old days, the dark days.
So begins the Rise of the Red Axe, the new multi-part storyline centered around the dwarves and their capital of Keldagrim. The first quest, The Giant Dwarf, introduces the city and the powerful business Consortium that rules the dwarven realm. Discover weird goings-on, narrowly escape from falling chunks of rock, ride around in minecarts and... make sure you don't bump into the wrong person on the way to the city!
|Requirements||12 Crafting, 16 Firemaking, 33 Magic, 14 Thieving|
|Enemies to defeat||None|
Walkthrough EditFirstly, enter the cave east of Rellekka, past the statues and into the Keldagrim Mine. Speak to the Dwarven Boatman and ask him if he will take you to the city. He will tell you yes, and just before you enter the city you'll hit the statue of the Dwarven King and you will be 'arrested'
Commander Veldaban will ask you to replace the statue. Talk to Blasidar the Sculptor on the east side of town. He will make the statue if you can get him clothes fit for a king, an axe fit for a king, and boots fit for a king.
- Clothes fit for a king -
- An axe fit for a king -
- Boots fit for a king -
Go back to the sculptor's house and give the items to his model after using your sapphires on the battleaxe. Then talk to Blasidar again. He will tell you that the directors of the consrtium cannot agree on the face for the statue (each company wants its own directors face). Your job is to get agreement.
There are eight mining companies in the Consortium. You need to join one of them. The companies are:
- The Blue Opal
- The Brown Engine (female players are not allowed to join this company)
- The Green Gemstone
- The Purple Pewter
- The Red Axe (you cannot join this company, they are the antagonist of this quest)
- The Silver Cog
- The White Chisel
- The Yellow Fortune (male players are not allowed to join this company)
Talk to the Secretary of the company that you want to work for. You will be given a task to collect a certain kind of ore within a time limit.
All of the ores can be found nearby (or in your bank, of course, but cannot be noted).
Refer to this map for the location of the ore. Note: You do not have to mine the ores. All the ores, except for clay, may be purchased at the blast furnace.
Copper - If you sail out of Keldagrim by talking to the boatman, you can mine it directly east in the dwarven caves.
Tin - If you sail out of Keldagrim by talking to the boatman, you can mine it in the dwarven caves. Use the ferry.
Coal - There is a mine in the northeast part of Keldagrim.
Mithril - Mithril rocks are next to the iron rocks.You can ask the secretary for a new task if you cannot do the one you have been given. If you fail a task, you may need to log out in order to receive a new task. The easiest way to complete this is to choose an ore and fill your inventory with it. Go to your chosen secretary and only accept jobs with that ore. In this way you need only visit the bank once. After you have done five tasks, ask to speak to the director. If the secretary lets you, do a few tasks for the director. Use the blast furnace to smelt the ore, or go to Rellekka if you have finished The Fremennik Trials.
After you have done a few tasks for the director, ask to join the company. Then volunteer to support the director at the next Consortium meeting. Return to Commander Veldaban to go to the meeting. You will support the director and get your reward.

There is currently a graphical glitch that appears during the cutscenes that show a closeup up the Giant Dwarf statue: the body appears to be floating above the legs, and the head (once it is added) is floating above the body.
