A detailed image of Auguste.

Auguste is a monk that starts the Enlightened Journey quest.

Auguste is a monk of the Holy Order of Entrana. He has lived on the island his entire life, learning the ways of Saradomin and leading a peaceful life. However, Auguste's desire for a more exciting life has finally convinced him to seek something more.

Auguste has the honour of being the inventor of the first hot-air balloon, and convinces players to help him in this quest to fly around Runescape in the quest Enlightened Journey. Once the quest is completed, players have the ability - with the required Firemaking levels - to use the Balloon transport system to various towns and places.

Also, if players have a Bomber cap and Gnome goggles with them, Auguste will sew them together free of charge.


  • His name and occupation are a reference to Auguste Piccard, who was a Swiss balloonist.
  • His appearance and character are also a reference to Jean-Luc Picard, a Star Trek character who, strangely, was based on Auguste Piccard.
  • He was the original "test dummy" for the updated chatbox faces before the graphics update. Players who completed the quest when it was first released may remember this .
