  • Organ of Steel should not be considered a reward for this quest; it's a reward for completing the new quest that it opens. This quest now has no actual reward apart from having to complete it to continue. --Creepingcrud 22:37, 29 June 2007 (CDT)

New text after completion:

"Thank you, adventurer! Truly you are a master of cleansing the taint. We'll be sure and let the Council know that you've made good on their promise of help. Brother Mollusk has been trying to figure out where in the Hey Deze all of these creatures came from, though, and his studies through our local library's collection of tomes of arcane knowledge has been fruitful. Even though he's racked up several thousand Meat's worth of late fees for not returning the tomes on time.

Anyway, Brother Mollusk discovered that we opened our portal directly above Hey Deze's biggest city, Pandemonium. It was recently named #1 on Hey Deze Weekly's 'Best Places to Be Eternally Damned' list. All of the downwardly-mobile imps and demons live there, including Azazel, one of the ArchDukes of Hey Deze.

Incidentally, one of the L Imps dropped a copy of Hey Deze Weekly as he was leaving. The lead story says that Azazel is missing some vitally important personal possessions. Somebody probably stole them -- that's one of the hazards of living among creatures of pure evil, you know. The article says he's offering a reward for their return. It's up to you if you want to get involved; we're going to stay the Hey Deze away from this gate from now on." --MoreCurious 08:52, 25 June 2007 (CDT)

Text needed?

There is text about hardcore in the notes section. Is this actualy needed as it is only related to one of the bullet points. --Shagie 15:24, 1 Sep 2005 (Central Daylight Time)

  • Yep, poorly structured, I'll fix it. Thanks. --Gymnosophist 17:26, 1 Sep 2005 (Central Daylight Time)

Quest Order

It seems that you do not gain access to the Copse of the Deep Fat Friars, any of its sub-areas, nor the Level 6 Quest, until you have completed the Typical Tavern Quest. Could someone else take a look at this and see if this is always the case?

  • Aye, it is. I already said so in Talk:Quest Spoilers, but someone should put that on an article, along with the order of other quests. --Pcentella 10:38, 20 November 2005 (Central Standard Time)

Do you need to get the items in the order the friars tell you?--A and m 10:36, 9 July 2006 (CDT)

  • No, they can be collected in any order, just takes a while to find them sometimes. Jihiro 08:31, 13 July 2006 (CDT)

What if you already have the skill as permanent while doing this quest?--A and m 00:05, 6 August 2006 (CDT)

  • You can't - the Organs of Steel cannot be taken as permanent skills. --Quietust 00:05, 6 August 2006 (CDT)


  • "This quest is probably a reference to the game "Doom", where an another experiment opens the gates of hell." There may have been things predating Doom that had that theme. Thoughts?--Dehstil (t|c) 14:24, 8 August 2006 (CDT)
    • I'll side with you on this one. The concept of the "gates of hell" predates Doom by centuries, easily (millennia if you count an Old Testament reference or two). Rodin's sculpture of that name was circa 1880 or so, I think? While unable to currently cite a specific reference of the gates opening and spewing forth demons which predates Doom, I find it hard to believe it's not happened before. Even granting that it's the first, there's no other similarities - not in the demons that come out, not in the location or context of the hellmouth, and definitely not in any of the quest items (would it really be a Doom reference without the BFG?). --Chamelaeon 14:35, 8 August 2006 (CDT)


102:06</br> Q: Anything about KoL that you feel ashamed about?</br> A: The “cleanse the taint” joke from the friar’s zone.</br> [1]</br>

Does that confirm the "taint" reference? --Raijinili 05:20, 10 January 2008 (CST)

Isn't taint an American slang for your bumhole? Kahlzun 10:01, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
American slang yes but not for bumhole however your close, I'll give you a hint "it ain't" one and "taint" the other. --Uzziah 01:59, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
I've always figured "the taint" was more likely to be used in the same way as Douglas Coupland in his novel "JPod"1, where it referred to the smell of McDonald's food (and, by extension, all McDonald's food or even the restaurant itself in general) especially when brought into a closed communal environment, e.g. a cubicle-style office. Given the prevalence of other McDonald's references and of course the close connection of this sense with deep fat fryers, I'd say the anatomical slang sense is probably almost coincidental (although undoubtedly welcomed as a double entendre).

  • sorry, coincidence. if you're sure, ask on the radio. --Evilkolbot 23:39, 12 October 2011 (CEST)

JPod was actually published in 2006, after this joke was already in the game... --Starwed 18:07, 13 October 2011 (CEST)
