The Cryptic Clue Fest IV is part of the Diamond Jubilee event in Varrock, which is held in honour of the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. It is organised by Essjay in Varrock Square. It is a puzzle-solving event held in a similar nature to the original Cryptic Clue Fest, Cryptic Clue Fest II and Cryptic Clue Fest III. It began on 1 June 2012. Clues will be released daily on the Cryptic Clue Fest IV thread on the RuneScape Official Forums. A total of five clues are scheduled to be released over the course of five days.

Day 1
Item clue

Lor' luv a duck! I’m on me Toblerone to find me way to deadly thrill to hop across the Granite maul. Before I go I’ll buy me a nice blue Drape from Dick. Hope I don’t end up brown bread.

Gawdon Bennet! I was standin' in the Dover Harbour, in me favaaahrite Bobby Brown of Riots Galore. I fancied Kick an’ Prance, so I decided ter visi’ Dancing Feet and he gave me a pink brush n go.

Lawd above, while on me travels I ended up in Ships Come In where I find a great rub a dub where you can find a free pig’s ear on the Cain and Abel! Nuff said!

NPC clue
The white-star & blue-shield, they house the building you must visit. A furnace to the west, a range to the east - accost the officer therein for a minute.

Tips
Each paragraph of the item clue represents one item and roughly where to buy it. Look closely at the words in italics and try to extract a meaning from them to get a better idea of each item and its location. The words in italics are mostly Cockney rhyming slang (a dialect used in a specific part of London). However, some of them are RuneScape specific rhyming slang, such as place names.

Solution
Lor' luv a duck! I’m on me own to find me way to Edgeville to hop across the Wilderness Wall. Before I go I’ll buy me a nice blue cape from Richard. Hope I don’t end up dead. Gawdon Bennet! I was standin' in the barber, in me favaaahrite town of Falador. I fancied a dance, so I decided ter visi’ Party Pete and he gave me a pink afro.

Lawd above, while on me travels I ended up in Port Sarim where I find a great pub where you can find a free beer on the table! Nuff said!

Solution
The items needed (and their locations as given in the above clue) are as follows:

Team-26 cape
Pink afro
Beer

As with all clues, however, you may obtain these items however you wish, including from others players and the Grand Exchange.

Take these items to Essjay in Varrock Square and she will provide you with a Jubilee Basket to carry items relating to the Cryptic Clue Fest along with the first character clue. Take the Jubilee Basket and the required items to the Permit Officer in the Estate Agent's house east of Falador furnace. She will give you the contact clue for tomorrow's riddle.



If you have more than one of each required item in your inventory, you will not receive the proper response for the event.




Day 2
Item clue

Item 1
On the bush nearby the item, traces of an avian species was found as the items brushed past the bush
Whilst rummaging on the ground nearby, I caught a splinter in my hand which was curious - I was about 6 feet away from the nearest tree
The items had definitely seen some use and been weathered, a bluish rust was found at the scene of the hiding

Item 2
'Hidden' out by the Saradomin statue east of Varrock, the item was laid but when removed, a small damp patch lay where it sat
When the culprit removed the item, there was a struggle as if part of the item had solidified while trying to remove it
Part of the item that got left behind was a solid substance, it had turned a colour crossed between brown and orange

Item 3
Down in the Rimmington onion field the item was found, when removed again expensive gemstone dust was found
Whilst investigating the field, I found an onion uprooted with what looked like a stab wound
The crafty devil had covered his tracks with this item, I can't find anything other than the dust and the uprooted onion

NPC clue
Comestibles sold upon the shelves, a slammer and jetty nearby. Talk to the owner, and don't be a moaner, and the items he will surely supply!

Tips
Each set of three paragraphs represent a single item which can be found around RuneScape. Look at each line and try to find key words which might represent something. Each of these key words can be used to narrow down the possible items needed for that part of the clue.

Item 1
Shoot! Shoot! Shoot! Pick up!
Blue tip

Item 2
You should mine it, you should wet it

Item 3
Hmmm...gemstone dust?

Solution
The items needed are:

Mithril arrow: can be purchased from Lowe's Archery Emporium in Varrock (the building on the west side of the eastern bank).
Soft clay: clay can be mined directly south of Barbarian Village . To turn into Soft clay use on the Well in Barbarian Village .
Chisel: can be bought from all general stores .

Only one of each item is needed.

Take these items to Wydin in his food shop in Port Sarim (immediately north of the jail).
He will give you the contact clue for tomorrows riddle. If you have more than one of each item in your inventory, you will not receive the proper response.

Note: Even though Essjay told players if they had the correct 'clue 1' items or not, she does not do so for 'clue 2' items. Just take your items directly to Wydin, and don't worry about asking Essjay about them.




Day 3
Item clue


This item clue will be released on the 3rd of June.

NPC clue
Proprietor of ascending sol, a house for making merry. She'll sell you a stout, but she'll give you a shout, if it turns out you're short of a penny.

Tips
Each of the four black dots on the customized map marks the location of where you can find this item.

The image itself represents places on the F2P world map, but it has been rotated 180 degrees; so what's north on the image is south on the world map, and what's west on the image is east on the world map. Also, names such as 'maze' reference Melzar's Maze and 'tower' references Wizards' Tower to make the clue more cryptic.

Solution
The items needed (and their locations as given in the above clue) are as follows:

Onion - Growing outside Melzar's Maze, "Tearful" on the map
Leather Gloves - On the table in Father Urhney's house in the Lumbridge Swamp, "Handy" on the map
Spade - North of Falador castle, in the house of the Estate Agent, "Dig" on the map
Earth Rune - North of Varrock Palace just before the Wilderness Wall, "Muddy" on the map

As with all clues, however, you may obtain these items however you wish, including from others players and the Grand Exchange.

Take one of each of these items, along with your Jubilee Basket, to Emily, who can be found behind the bar in the Rising Sun Inn in Falador (south-west of the northern Falador Square).



If you have more than one of each required item in your inventory, you will not receive the proper response for the event.




Day 4
Item clue

Mod Timbo had invited 6 of the most prominent figures in all of RuneScape to a garden party, giving them time to relax in the sun with Wizard Mind Bombs and a buffet of freshly caught seafood from the coast of Catherby. Unbeknown to each of Timbo's guests, it was a ruse in order to blackmail each of them into giving up their rare items without having to fight them first! Timbo had acquired secrets about each, they were:

Nomad - What people think is Nomad is actually a scheming Dwarf called Honeydew inside a mechanical suit
Nex - While she was young, she practiced the ways of Saradomin before converting to Zaros
Lucien - Only stole the Stone of Jas to impress a lady and it all suddenly got out of hand but needed to continue impressing her
Wise Old Man - Uses magic to convince everyone that he's old when he's actually only 24 years old
Lord Drakan - Has hidden himself from public view due to him enjoying Twilight and being unable to face another since
Bank Clark - Using his inner knowledge of the Bank of RuneScape system, he has been siphoning off cabbages to fuel his addiction to the delicious vegetable

Aghast with this news, each of Timbo's guests were filled with anger and embarassment. Not wanting to cause a fuss at such a prestigious party, they each decided to not to give Timbo a present that they were planning on presenting at the end of the evening. Using their combat abilities would have been too easy but the denial of presents was something that they thought would definitely hit the right spot. The withheld presents were:

Nomad - An Iron pickaxe, the exact pickaxe that dug all of the underneath of Soul Wars
Nex - An Uncut sapphire, one of her favourite gemstones
Lucien - 10 Body runes, Lucien always thought a Disruption Shield would be useful in dire needs but wanted to give them out to a good friend
Wise Old Man - A Cowhide, a reminder of the 'good old days' of Gielinor
Lord Drakan - A Meat pizza, not quite the diet of Vampyre lords but delicious nevertheless
Bank Clark - A Cabbage, as part of his Cabbaholic Anonymous program he needs to handle them without eating one

The party carried on, guests and Timbo alike drank Gnomish cocktails and continued to eat specialty Rabbit sandwiches from Burthorpe. That was until three blood-curdling screeches could be heard from inside of the mansion. "Murder!" the waiter cried, "Murder in Timbo Mansion!". It was true, three people had been killed and only the guests could be to blame! Timbo gathered everyone, staff and guests included, at the Garden Party area for an emergency meeting. "Friends and guests, we have a murderer loose amongst the house!" Gasps came from all present, an elderly maid fainted in the background. "I am afraid to admit that we do not know who or where these murders were committed. We're bringing in a crack team of investigators who will be able to solve this. Bring in... THE PLAYERS."

Investigate Kitchen
Kitchen - A simple kitchen fit for a mansion, pots and pans line the room as you enter in an orderly fashion aside from a couple that were presumably used for dinner. The main table island in the middle of the table lies strewn with cutlery, knives and chopping boards as if no-one had tidied since the last meal.

Investigate Ballroom
Ballroom - A jukebox sits in the corner of the Ballroom, stuck on a disc trying to change. The room is massive and the dancing floor shines as it covers the vast majority of the surface of the floor. There is nothing of note in the room or the floor save for the usual scuff marks from dancing.

Investigate Conservatory
Conservatory - A quiet room of solitude, Timbo used this room as his place to play RuneScape. A PC sits in the corner with a comfy leather office chair, the desk has a few assorted items such as empty soda cans. The rest of the room is sparse except for a table and a set of chairs.

Investigate Library
Library - A vast library sits at the heart of the mansion, three floors of bookcases strech as far as the eye can see. There are three wings of book types, a running record of all of the items left on the floor in RuneScape, every thread that has ever fallen to page 51 and the name of every player ever called a 'noob'.

Investigate Study

Investigate Hall
Hall The grand hall of Timbo Mansion stands before with giant marble pillars and huge Gothic arches. Dressers litter the edges of the hall with doors to various rooms, occasional hatstand and painting on the wall.

Investigate Lounge
Lounge - A huge room opens up ahead of you, theee 4 person sofas sit in the middle of the room with a low-standing table. An elaborate crystal chandelier sits off the ceiling, slightly slanted and the grand marble fireplace is roaring, heating the room.

Investigate Dining Room
Dining Room -It would be more appropriate to call this a Dining Hall, a resplendent dining table runs through the room like a wooden river able to sit up to 40 guests. It seems as if the laying of the table was disrupted, a pile of clean plates and napkins sits at the end. The head chair looks overly majestic, it seems as if Timbo is a bit pompous.

NPC clue
A man who deals in quality cloths, a person with whom you can barter. If you can handle the sand, just try your hand and see if he's got what you're after.

Tips
Study the original thread carefully. There is more to the words than meets the eye.

Solution
Take the required items to the Silk Trader in Al Kharid, just North-east of the Al-Kharid Lodestone.Items:



10 Body runes - can be bought from Aubury's Rune Shop in Varrock
Meat Pizza - is not sold in any shop; pizza bases can be bought from Fat Tony in the Wilderness Bandit Camp (or from the Grand Exchange), tomatoes and cheese, which will also need to added to pizza base before cooking, can be found in Aggie's house in Draynor Village and meat can be obtained from cows, rats or bears; alternatively, the meat pizza can be bought from the Grand Exchange
Cabbage - Can be Picked in the Field South of Falador.
◾ Note: Do Not Pick the Cabbage from the Draynor Manor. That Cabbage will not Work.

NPC clue
