Lighthouseguy.gif Recover the Lighthouse Keeper's Gunpowder is a side-quest in the Mysterious Island Quest. The Lighthouse Keeper needs your help retrieving barrels of gunpowder from Sonofa Beach.

The Lighthouse can initially only be accessed while wearing the Frat Warrior Fatigues. It becomes available while wearing the War Hippy Fatigues after a sufficient number of Frat warriors (64 or more) have been killed in The Battlefield.




Without wearing soldier fatigues:

"Sorry, but I don't have time to mess around with you right now. I'm waiting for the soldiers to come and help me, bumpty-bumpty-bump."

On initial visit with war fatigues:

Finally, some help, bumpty-bumpty-bump! Here I was, just minding my own business, trying to make the big boom, big boom, bumpty-bump, when all of a sudden war breaks out! War, bumpty-bumpty-bump! Those pirates, they went away, but on the way out of the cove they sank the ship that was bringing me my gunpowder! I need it! I need it for the big big boom, bumpty-bump!
Anyway, I tried going down to Sonofa Beach to see if any of it washed up, bumpty-bump, but those lobsterfrogmen down there are too tough for me to handle.
You -- you go get it for me, bumpty-bumpty-bump? 5 barrels, at least."

After bringing back five barrels:

"My gunpowder! Big boom! Big big boom! Thank you, bumpty-bumpty-bump! Bumpty-bump!"
He gazes at you thoughtfully for a few seconds, then a smile lights up his face and he says "My life... er... my bombs for you. My bombs for you, bumpty-bumpty-bump!"
He then disappears into the lighthouse.

After retrieving the barrels, once per day:

"I took most of the bombs over to your house, bumpty-bumpty-bump, but there are a few left over. Big boom! Big boom!
As a Frat:
Teqgrenade.gifYou acquire N tequila grenades
Molotov.gifYou acquire N molotov cocktail cocktails
Beer.gifYou acquire N beer bombs
Sakebomb.gifYou acquire N sake bombers
As a Hippy:
Patchbomb.gifYou acquire N patchouli oil bombs
Hackeysack.gifYou acquire N exploding hackensacks

Once a day after completing the side-quest:

"Big boom, bumpty-bumpty-bump. Big big boom! Bring me some gunpowder, and I'll make it for you! Big boom for you, bumpty-bump!"

Returning without a soldier's fatigues on, or wearing the fatigues of the side you did not solve the quest as:

"The man giggles madly.
"I'm making the big boom, bumpty-bumpty-bump, but not for you! Not for you! You'll see, bumpty-bump! You'll see!"

Subsequent visits:

"I already gave you the big boom today, bumpty-bump! More tomorrow! More tomorrow!"


  • The Lighthouse Keeper is based on the The Trashcan Man, a character from Stephen King's The Stand with an explosives fixation. His exclamations of "bumpty-bump!" and "my bombs (life) for you!" are a reference to this character.
