Everybody needs some body, and the Odd Old Man knows exactly which bits of those bodies he needs. Can you help him finish his extensive and extremely creepy collection? To find the Odd Old Man, travel northeast of Varrock until you come to a quarry. You'll find a man carrying a large sack of bones. This is the Odd Old Man. Talk to him and he will tell tell you his story how he is an archaeologist collecting bones. He will like you to help him collect certain bones. The bones are as follows: goblin skull, bear ribs, big frog leg, ram skull, unicorn bone, monkey paw, giant rat bone, and giant bat wing. To collect these bones you must kill the creature that possessess it.

How to obtain the bones:
Goblin Skull - Kill goblin west of Lumbridge.
Bear Ribs - Kill bear south of Varrock.
Big Frog Leg - Kill big frog at the Lumbridge Swamp Cave located south west of Lumbridge.
Ram Skull - Kill a ram at the Lumbridge sheep pen north of Lumbridge castle.
Unicorn Bone - Kill unicorn south of Varrock.
Monkey Paw - Kill monkey at Brimhaven or Karamja.
Giant Rat Bone - Kill giant rat in the Varrock Sewers.
Giant Bat Wing - Kill giant bat outside the Keep Le Faye south east of Camelot.

Once you have collected all of the bones go to Draynor Village. Here you will find a man named Fortunato. Talk to him and ask him about vinegar. After you tell him of the Odd Old Man he will sell you some. Get at least 8 jugs of vinegar. In addition to the bones and vingear you will need a tinderbox, pot, and 8 logs. When you have everything return to the Odd Old Man. Now you will have to prepare the bones for him. Near the Odd Old Man is a pot-boiler. Use your logs with this. Use a jug of vinegar with the pot, place one bone in the pot, place this onto the pot-boiler, and use your tinderbox with the pot-boiler. After it boils remove the pot. The bone will now be clean. Repeat this with the rest of the bones. After you are done talk to the Odd Old Man and give him the bones. This will end the quest and you will receive your reward.
