Freeing the Guards
Speak to Denulth.
Find a way to talk to Harold.
Speak to Denulth, located south of the castle (Picture). He will inform you that his soldiers need a way up to the Death Plateau. Head upstairs in the castle and speak to Eohric. He will then tell you about Harold, one of the guards.
Find Harold upstairs in the bar, and talk to him. Unfortunately, he's not interested in speaking to you, so return to see Eohric, who will tell you that Harold likes Asgarnian Ale and Gambling.
Give Harold his drinks.
Gamble with Harold.
Obtain the IOU.
Free the guards.
Items needed: Asgarnian Ale, Blurberry Special, 100-500GP.
An Asgarnian Ale can be bought in the Burthorpe or Falador Bars for 3GP.
Return to Harold and give him his ale (Picture). If he requests a Blurberry Special as well, give him one. Gamble with Harold using the dice on the screen (Picture). If you win with a high enough bet, he will not be able to afford to pay you back and will give you an IOU (Picture).
Read the combo (Picture) to find the door combination. Return to the castle and place the Coloured Balls in their correct places on the table (Combination). Once you unlock the door, go up the tower and speak to one of the archers in the tower and he will thank you for freeing them.
Finding another way
Find the Sherpa.
Head towards the cave just north-west of the castle to find Saba. Talk to him (Picture). He says that the old Sherpa, Tenzing, in the mountains knows the secret passage to the Death Plateau.
Exit his cave and head west. When you come to a fork, head south, NOT north - if you head north to the plateau, trolls will throw rocks at you hitting 3-5 damage each.
At the end of the trail is Tenzing's house (Picture). Talk to him, and he will tell you that he wants 10 Trout, 10 Bread, and his Climbing boots fixed before he helps you (Picture).
Get the climbing boots.
Give Tenzing his food.
Find the secret pass.
Return to Denulth.
Items needed: 10 Trout, 10 Bread, 1 Iron bar.
The trouts can be purchased from the Warriors' Guild for 24GP each.
Find Dunstan, the smith, located in the north-east part of Burthorpe. He will ask for a favour before he helps you - his son wants to get into the army but needs Denulth's approval. Speak to Denulth and he will give you a certificate (Picture). Return to the smith and give it to him along with an iron bar, and he will then make your climbing boots (Picture).
Return to Tenzing and give him the trout, bread, and climbing boots. He will give you a "secret way map" (Picture). Climb over the stile in his backyard and go north. The path will begin to turn east, and you will pass by some mountain goats. When you come to a fork in the path, continue to head east (Picture). You will soon get a message that says "I see no need to go further" (Picture). To go further down the trail you need climbing boots, which you will discover in a later quest. Return to Denulth, and he will will reward you for your help.
