Recruitment Drive is a sequel of the Black Knights' Fortress.



Official quest description: The Temple Knights of Saradomin, a secret organisation founded many centuries ago by Saradomin himself, are currently looking to expand their ranks with some new blood.

After the successful thwarting of the Black Knights' plans to take over Asgarnia, and with the personal recommendation of Sir Amik, you have now been offered the chance to apply for membership in this organisation... but are you up to the challenge?

Release date: 27 June 2005 (Update)
Start: Talk to Sir Amik Varze on the third floor in the White Knights' Castle in Falador.
Difficulty: *****
Length: Short, but can be aggravating and longer
Members only: Yes
Requirements: Done Black Knights' Fortress and Druidic Ritual, able to defeat a level 20 monster without any items at all.
Items needed: 3000 coins, to switch gender if you are a male character (You will be fully reimbursed, but only if you switch gender after starting the quest.)
Monsters to kill: Sir Leye



Starting out

A male player before and after a gender change from the Makeover Mage.

Talk to Sir Amik Varze to start the quest. Then follow the guides below according to your player's gender.

Male: Be sure to have 3000 coins and go to the Makeover Mage south of Falador near the Crafting Guild to get you gender changed. This is required in order to pass a test on the next part. Then bank all of your items, including the ones you are wearing. And talk to Sir Tiffy Cashien in Falador Park to take the mental test.

Female: Bank all of your items, including the ones you are wearing, and talk to Sir Tiffy Cashien in Falador Park to take the mental test.


Sir Cashien will take you to the testing grounds. There are 7 different testing rooms. In each room, there is a yellow portal at the beginning of the room (takes you back to Falador) and a yellow portal at the end of the room, which you may use to travel to the next room after you pass the test. You need to complete 5 in a row. Which 5 you'll get, as well as the order that they are in, is completely random. If you fail a test, you have no choice but to return to Falador and start over.

Sir Kuam Ferentse

He tells you that you must defeat Sir Leye, who is level 20. Sir Leye has been blessed by Saradomin so that no man may defeat him. So unless you have a female character, you will not be able to hit the final blow on him. If you are not a female character, go to makeover mage for gender swap. Defeat him to pass the test.

Sir Spishyus

Right next to him, you'll see a 5 kg chicken, a 5 kg bag of grain, and a 5 kg fox. You must get all 3 of them across a bridge that only supports 5 kilograms at a time. The tricky part is that if you leave the fox and chicken alone, the fox will eat the chicken. The chicken will also eat the bag of grain if the two of them are left alone.
A player wielding the chicken.
  1. Take the chicken to the other side, since the fox and grain are the only pair that actually get along
  2. Drop the chicken, then come back and grab the fox
  3. Take it to the other side then grab the chicken and drop the fox.Then take the chicken back to the start
  4. Grab the Grain, drop the chicken, and take the grain across the bridge
  5. Drop this item, then go back to the beginning for the chicken, and take it across

Lady Table

A room with statues of knights

Read this before starting the test, it will not wait for you, and you will fail it if you are reading this. Lady Table will test your memory. She will have 11 statues of a knight in front of her. There are supposed to be 12, but one has been taken away. You will have a few seconds to look at the statues, then the missing one will be returned. You must then touch the one that was missing.

The trick to passing this one is to analyse the types of statues. There are 4 of each colour: Bronze, silver, and gold. First see which colour only has 3. After you figure out the colour, figure out the weapon. There are 4 weapons: sword, halberd, greataxe, and mace. Figure out which weapon is missing. After you have figured it out, touch the statue.

A good strategy is to take a screen shot of the statues, and use it to find the missing statue.

Miss Cheevers

There are two doors that you must get through. The first door is missing a handle, while the second one is locked.

Firstly, search all of the bookcases and crates in the room to find the following items: alchemical notes, cupric ore powder, cupric sulphate, 3 vials of dihydrogen monoxide, gypsum, a tin container, tin ore powder, a knife, and a spade. You may also find nitrous oxide, sodium chloride and a magnet, but these serve no purpose.

One may not find the alchemical notes on the first pass, that can be solved by talking to Miss Cheevers once or twice more.

To get past the first door, take the metal spade and use it on the Bunsen burner to remove the wood, leaving a metal spade head. Use the spade head on the door. Use the cupric sulphate on the spade and then add one of the vials of dihydrogen monoxide (vial of liquid). This will make the spade expand, trapping it in the hole. It can then be pulled to open the door.

To get past the second door use another vial of dihydrogen monoxide and the gypsum in the tin to get a clay substance. Next, find a key chained to the wall and use the tin of clay on it to get an imprint. Then add the cupric ore powder and tin ore powder on the tin and use it on the bunsen burner to make a bronze key. Use the knife on the tin to scrape the key out, then take your key and unlock the door. There is also some bronze wire that can be found in one of the crates. That can be used to dig the key out of the mould, too.

If a player mixes two wrong substances, it creates a useless mixture (??? mixture).

Sir Ren Itchood

He will give you a riddle, the answer is a four letter word. The answer is often a word that he keeps using, or the first letter of each line. Use the answer to unlock the combination lock on the next door. The possible solutions are: FISH, BITE, RAIN, LAST, PASS, TIME, CLUE, or MEAT. (take the first letter of each sentence)

Miss Hynn Terprett

She will give you a multiple choice riddle. There are many to choose from - Here are all the riddles and answers:

  • Riddle

If you were sentenced to death, what would you rather choose, being thrown off a castle turret or fed to wolves that haven't eaten in 30 days?

  • Answer:

Being fed to the wolves - wolves cannot survive for 30 days without food, thus they would all be dead.

  • Riddle

I dropped four identical stones, into four identical buckets, each containing an identical amount of water. The first bucket was at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the second was at 33 degrees, the third was at 34 and the fourth was at 35 degrees. Which bucket's stone dropped to the bottom of the bucket last?

  • Answer

The First Bucket (32 Degree Bucket—the water would be frozen).

  • Riddle

A father is 4 times as old as his daughter. In 20 years he will be 2 times as old. How old is the daughter?

  • Answer


  • Riddle

Counting the creatures and humans in RuneScape you get about a million inhabitants. If you multiply the fingers on everything's left hand by a million, how many would you get?

  • Answer

0 - The key word here is "everything's" as opposed to "everyone's." One definition for the word "things" relates to inanimate objects. Inanimate objects don't have fingers. Using this rationale, the equation is then 0 x 1,000,000 = 0. The first sentence in the clue simply sets up a false pretext to throw you off.

  • Riddle

The number of false statements here is one. The number of false statements here is two. The number of false statements here is three. The number of false statements here is four. How many false statements are there?

  • Answer

There are 3 false statements.

Sir Tinley

After talking to him, stand still and wait until he speaks to you again, it may take a while before he does finally talk to you. If you move, or do anything while you're waiting, you will fail the task. Patience is the key to success.



  • 1 quest point
  • 1000 prayer experience
  • 1000 agility experience
  • 1000 herblore experience
  • Access to Initiate Temple Knight armour. You will be given a helmet (named Initiate sallet) for free, and you can buy subsequent helmets for 6K, the legs (Initiate cuisse) for 8K, the platebody (Initiate hauberk) for 10K, and the full set for 20K. It looks just like White armour, only with a gold trim.
  • The Gaze of Saradomin - When you die, you will have the option of returning to Falador instead of Lumbridge. Talk to Sir Tiffy to change your spawn point at any time. Note that this does not change your Lumbridge Home Teleport spell in your magic book—it only applies when you've actually died.
  • If you were a male at the start of the quest, you'll be given your 3K back, as well as a Makeover voucher to change you back to male.


Music unlocked:


  • From a corner in the mine of Between A Rock, you can see one of the rooms from the quest.
  • Dihydrogen Monoxide is another name for water and is most likely a reference to the Dihydrogen Monoxide Hoax.
  • If a player uses the dihydrogen monoxide and the sodium choloride together, the character will say "I've got no time for brine!" This statement references the fact that dihydrogen monoxide and sodium chloride are water and salt respectively, and when put together, they create salt-water, or, brine.
  • There is a bug in the game involving Sir Spishyus challenge, in which the player can hold the chicken, the fox, and the grain all at once outside of the room. Only a few players have replicated this glitch.
  • The Sir Spishyus challenge is a reference to a real life children's riddle. An alternate version of the riddle involves taking a wolf, a goat, and a cabbage across a river using a boat that only holds one item.
  • Sir Leye is a reference to the Witch King of Angmar in The Return of the King as he says "No man can defeat me". One of the female protagonists was able to kill him, however, which a lot of players made a connection to immediately when they saw this when the quest first came out.
  • During the Sir Spishyus challenge, when carrying the chicken, it appears to be stapled to your thigh rather than being carried in your hands.
  • 'Sir Spishyus' is a play on the word 'Suspicous'.
