- You slip a little and tumble the rest of the way down the slope."
- Grand Tree dungeon - Daconia rocks
- Rock in western Kharazi Jungle, the entrance to Legends caverns

Underground Pass stone plaques
Rocks are featured heavily during Underground Pass quest. They are traversed by mining, climbing and swinging over them with a rope. Some of the rocks contain writings on Iban, which have been "scratched into the rocks by bare hands".
All those who thirst for knowledge Bow down to the lord. All you that crave eternal life Come and meet your God. For no man nor beast can cast a spell Against the wake of eternal hell.
Most men do live in fear of death That it might steal their soul. Some work and pray to shield their life From the ravages of the cold. But only those who embrace the end Can truly make their lfie extend. And when all hope begins to fade look above and use nature as your aid
And now our God has given us One who is from our own. A saviour who once sat upon His father's glorious thrown. It is in your name that we will lead the attack Iban son of Zamorak!
Near Tomb of Iban is a rock with the following text:
Leave this battered corpse be For now he lives as spirit alone Let his flesh rest and become one with the earth As it is the soil that shall rise to protect him Only as flesh becomes dust, as wood becomes ash... ..will Iban's corpse embrace nature and finally rest
Old Journal replicas
Ibans Shadow Then came the hard part: recreating the parts of a man that cannot be seen or touched: those intangible things that are life itself. Using all the mystical force that I could muster, I performed the ancient ritual of Incantia, a spell so powerful that it nearly stole the life from my frail and withered body. Opening my eyes again, I saw the three demons that had been summoned. Standing in a triangle, their energy was focused on the doll. These demons would be the keepers of Iban's shadow. Black as night, their shared spirit would follow his undead body like an angel of death.
Last parts of the chapter on Iban's conscience:
Crumbling some of the dove's bones onto the doll, I cast my mind's eye onto Iban's body. My ritual was complete, soon he would be coming to life. I, Kardia, had resurrected the legendary Iban, the most powerful evil being ever to take human form. And I alone knew that the same process that I had used to create him, was also capable of destroying him. But now I was exhausted. As I closed my eyes to sleep, I was settled by a strange feeling of contentment anticipation of the evil that Iban would soon unleash.
