Sigmund

Sigmund is a non-player character who is a high-ranking member of H.A.M. and an advisor to Horacio, the Duke of Lumbridge, a title which he loses at the end of The Lost Tribe.

He has been involved in four attempts to destroy the Dorgeshuun goblins. The first was during the Lost Tribe quest, the second during the Death to the Dorgeshuun quest, the third from Another slice of H.A.M. quest, and finally the fourth during The Chosen Commander.

Quests

Lost Tribe

During this quest, Sigmund sends the player to find silverware allegedly stolen by underground goblins. You can talk to the people right outside the front of the castle. Then you report to the Duke. During this quest it is discovered that Sigmund has taken the silverware and is a member of Humans Against Monsters, or H.A.M. His attempts at creating a war between Misthalin and the Dorgeshuun are thwarted, and he is dismissed for treason by Duke Horacio.

Death to the Dorgeshuun

During the Death to the Dorgeshuun quest, a H.A.M. member reveals that Sigmund and Johanhus Ulsbrecht, head of H.A.M, are "planning something big". After eavesdropping on the H.A.M council, it is discovered that they are using a machine they bought from the dwarves of Keldagrim for unknown purposes. When the dead Dorgeshuun Zanik has been revived, she reveals that the HAM are going to use the machine to flood the Dorgeshuun capital, Dorgesh-Kaan.

Another Slice of H.A.M.

In this quest, Sigmund and his men ambush goblins at the Goblin Village. After a brief struggle he captures Zanik, and ties her to the new rail line linking Keldagrim and Dorgesh-Kaan in the hopes of starting war between the two cities. However his plans are foiled by an adventurer who defeats him and manages to get Zanik off the track just before the train arrives. And once again, he uses another ring of life to get away safely just like in the previous quest.

The Chosen Commander

In The Chosen Commander, Sigmund has left the main H.A.M. base and has formed his own base in Kandarin due to some disagreements with Johanhus Ulsbrecht. While Johanhus wants to deal with the goblins indirectly, Sigmund tries to eliminate the goblins personally.

His plan first involved sending an undercover H.A.M. Agent to Dorgesh-Kaan to poison the food that the young Dorgeshuun were having in order to wipe out the goblin youth, but this plan was thwarted by the adventurer. Upon finding out his agent was killed by Zanik, Sigmund decided to finish the Dorgeshuun off by invading the city with his H.A.M. army and destroy all the goblins there. To do this, Sigmund captures Grubfoot, the advisor to the Goblin generals and tortures him to reveal Zanik's location and on how to access the city.

However, the adventurer discovers Sigmund's new base and breaks in wearing a disguise and manages to release Grubfoot, in the process triggering an alarm and having to fight off a set of H.A.M.

As the adventurer and Grubfoot narrowly escape from the guards, Zanik (possessed by Bandos) arrives with a small group of goblins and attacks the base. Sigmund, despite having already failed with his latest scheme, engages them in a fight, looking forward to finally killing the adventurer. With the help of Zanik, the adventurer manages to defeat Sigmund.

Sigmund tries escaping death using a Ring of Life as before but Zanik cuts off his hand, preventing him from using the ring. Sigmund begs for mercy and the player is given the choice as to whether tell Zanik to kill Sigmund, spare him or say nothing at all. Regardless of what the player says, Zanik says that Sigmund showed her no mercy when they captured her in the H.A.M. base and she kills him after Sigmund declares that he wants to die, since he would rather be dead than live in a world overrun by goblins.

Trivia

  • When you talk to Sigmund in the H.A.M. Dungeon after you have completed The Lost Tribe, he will occasionally say, "...And I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for that pesky adventurer!" which is a reference to the television show Scooby-Doo.
  • After he ties Zanik to the railway, Sigmund says, "You have no chance to survive make your time." This is a reference to All your base are belong to us, a popular internet meme.[1]
  • Sigmund is one of the few non-player characters that non-members cannot talk to. However, the pickpocket option is visible, yet when clicked the usual 'You need to be on a member's server to do this' message appears.
  • Sigmund's hand showed up at the courtyard of Lumbridge because Zanik severed Sigmund's hand, and the Ring of life teleported the hand to Lumbridge after the base collapsed, breaking the Anti-Teleportation Glyphs.
  • After you start The Lost Tribe, talk to Hans and then Duke Horacio. When Sigmund comes into the conversation, when he is talking his name says "lost_tribe_sigmund" instead of Sigmund.
  • If you do the lost tribe quest then go on a F2P server Sigmund doesn't apprear.
