Begin the quest by speaking to Brundt the Chieftain, located north of the entrance of Rellekka, indicated by the quest icon. He explains that the only way to become a Fremennik is if you impress seven of the twelve members of the council of elders enough that they give you their vote.
Each of the seven that consider accepting you have a personal task for you to complete. The other five council members' votes are unattainable.
You can do the trials in any order.
To start one of the Fremennik Trials, visit the bar adjacent to Brundt the Chieftain's location, where you'll find Manni enjoying his drinks. Engage him in a friendly drinking competition to see who can handle more beer before getting drunk. Take the keg of beer and a beer tankard from the bar counter to participate in the challenge.
During the contest, it becomes evident that Manni can hold his liquor much better than you, and you end up losing no matter how much you try. Amused by your efforts, Manni remains mostly sober while you feel the effects of the beer.
As you leave the bar, proceed to Seers' Village and approach the Poison Salesman next to the bar. Here, you can purchase a Low Alcohol Keg of Beer for 250 coins. If you didn't manage to grab the beer tankard earlier, you can also buy a regular beer here to save time for obtaining the strange object required for another trial.
Now, armed with the Low Alcohol Keg of Beer, you're prepared to tackle the next trial. The journey to impress the council members has just begun, and each trial will bring new challenges and opportunities to showcase your abilities. Good luck on your quest to earn the votes of the Fremennik council and become an honorary member among these resilient people!
As you make your way back to Rellekka from the Poison Salesman in Seers' Village, remember to use the beer or beer tankard on the council workman located at the end of the bridge. By doing so, you'll offer him a drink and receive a strange object in return, which will be essential for one of the trials.
Next, head to the Rellekka bar and look for a pipe on the outside of the longhall, situated on the east wall, close to Olaf the Bard. Utilize your tinderbox to light the strange object, turning it into a lit strange object. Quickly hide the lit object inside the pipe.
Enter the longhall and pick up another keg of beer from the table. If you've stored the keg in your bank, you won't be able to pick up another one from the table, so make sure you have one in your inventory.
Now, use the low alcohol keg on the normal keg of beer in your inventory. This will cause the lit strange object inside the pipe to explode, creating a diversion and distracting the Fremennik in the longhall.
While they are occupied with the explosion, you can swiftly switch the contents of the two kegs without being noticed.
Once you have successfully switched the kegs, talk to Manni again. After he drinks from the keg, he will be impressed that you consumed a whole keg of beer without any adverse effects. In recognition of your remarkable drinking prowess, Manni will give you his vote, bringing you one step closer to becoming an honorary Fremennik and earning the acceptance of the council. Well done!
Option 1: Crafting a Lyre To craft a lyre, you'll need the following items:
Option 2: Obtaining an Enchanted Lyre If you have access to a Player-Owned House with a portal located in Rellekka, you can use it to travel directly to the Fossegrimen's Island. Once there, talk to Fossegrimen and ask her for an Enchanted Lyre.
Performing at the Longhall Once you have a lyre (either crafted or enchanted), head to the longhall in Rellekka to meet Olaf. Equip the lyre and play it in the longhall to perform as a bard. Olaf will listen to your performance, and if he is impressed, he will give you his vote.
Remember, you need to impress a total of seven council members to become an honorary Fremennik. You can complete the trials in any order, and after impressing seven members, you will be accepted as one of their own. Good luck on your journey to becoming a Fremennik!
Items recommended: Some food, armour, a weapon (a Halberd is best, ranged is not effective), and prayer potions.
Sigli can be found near the entrance gate of Rellekka. Your task is to find the Draugen, an immortal spirit, and weaken it by defeating it. Sigli will give you a hunters' talisman to aid you in locating the Draugen. Use the talisman similarly to how you use a Runecraft talisman; selecting "locate" will give you a chat message pointing you in the direction to go. The Draugen moves around the Fremennik Province and can even cross bridges, making it challenging to find.
To assist you further, keep an eye out for a small, transparent-looking butterfly that follows the Draugen. This butterfly can be used to help you locate the spirit. Having Level 48 Agility can be beneficial as it grants you access to a shortcut log bridge, which may aid in reaching the Draugen faster.
One method to find the Draugen is to sit near the bridge to the east of the strange altar and patiently wait in that spot. Eventually, the Draugen will appear, and you'll be alerted with a chat message saying, "The Draugen is here! Beware!" Prepare yourself with the appropriate gear, as a level-50 player should be able to defeat the Draugen without much difficulty. However, keep in mind that the Draugen is particularly resistant to ranged attacks.
Once you defeat the Draugen, its essence will be absorbed into the hunters' talisman. Return to Sigli with the talisman to show him your accomplishment and secure his vote for the council. Remember, you need to impress seven of the twelve council members to become an honorary Fremennik. Best of luck in your quest to gain their votes and become one of their own!
Sigmund the Merchant
Items needed: 5,000 coins.
In Rellekka, you can find Sigmund in the market area. He will request an exotic flower from you. However, this task isn't as straightforward as it seems and involves helping several other NPCs, similar to a miniature version of the One Small Favour quest. Refer to the map for easy navigation to locate the NPCs.
Head to Swensen's house, located southwest of the longhall in Rellekka. Upon speaking to him, he will task you with navigating through his maze of portals. To enter the maze, go down the ladder in the southwest corner of his house. Each room in the maze contains four portals: one on the north wall, one on the south wall, one on the east wall, and one on the west wall.
In the brightly lit rooms with burning torches, one of the portals will lead you to the next room on the correct path. However, the other three portals will take you to dimly lit rooms with extinguished torches, spider webs, and skeletons. These darker rooms are dead ends, and their portals only lead to other dead ends. If you find yourself in one of these dead ends, you'll need to climb the rope back up and start over.
Now, here's the trick to successfully navigate the maze: spell out Swensen's name by taking the portals in the following order: South, West, East, North, South, East, and finally North again (SWENSEN). If you follow this sequence correctly, you will reach the end of the maze. Make sure to pay attention to your minimap and ensure it's focused in the right direction.
Items recommended: Food, prayer potions, and combat potions. If you have low combat stats you may bring a god book, rings of recoil (7 minimum), goblin paint cannon, phoenix necklaces, a dramen branch and knife.
To complete Thorvald's trial, you'll need to face and defeat Koschei the Deathless, a formidable warrior with multiple forms that grow stronger after each defeat. Here are the details and tips to succeed in this challenge:
Regardless of the outcome, Thorvald will recognize your bravery in facing a superior foe and grant you his vote.
With this trial completed, you are one step closer to becoming an honorary member of the Fremennik!
Peer can be found south of the market, and he has a unique trial for you. To earn his vote, you must enter the front door of his house and exit through the back door. However, this seemingly straightforward task is complicated by the fact that you cannot take any items with you, and the house is filled with puzzles.
Here's what you need to know to complete Peer's trial:
Remember to save this trial for last to avoid unnecessary back-and-forth to the bank. With Peer's vote secured, you'll have one more council member on your side, bringing you closer to becoming an honorary member of the Fremennik people!
To get in, you need to answer a puzzle. The answer is a four-letter word, and Peer will give you a clue for each letter and the word itself. All possible answers include: time, life, mage, fire, wind, mind, and tree.
Inside Peer's house, you will need to explore and search for several items required for the trial. Here's what you need to do:
Once you have obtained all seven council members' votes, return to Chieftain Brundt and speak to him to complete the quest.
Congratulations on becoming an honorary member of the Fremennik people!
