Introduction

The Stronghold of Security is a place where all players, including free-to-play, can learn how to keep their account secure and be rewarded! Rewards can range from new emotes to new items and even cash prizes! There are four floors to the Stronghold of Security and the monsters get tougher as you go. It is recommended that you have food, a good weapon and armor to fight off the monsters.

Requirements

Must have recovery questions set.

Getting Started

To get started with the Stronghold of Security, head to the Barbarian Village which is located South of Edgeville and West of Varrock.

Upon arrival, speak to Litara and she'll ask you to go down and keep an eye out for her brother.

After speaking with Litara, enter the dungeon by clicking 'Climb-Down Entrance'.

After you enter, you'll notice a dead explorer. Unfortunately for Litara, it's her brother. Search the dead explorer and you'll get Stronghold notes. This book records notes of your discoveries while you travel throughout the dungeon.

Start by opening the Gates of War. You'll be asked various questions about how to keep your account safe and secure.

Here's image of Sepulchre of Death, as you requested, exactly as others are done.
But I'm also going to do a more complete map of entire stronghold, with monsters, portals and ladders included.

And here's all levels, finished:

Wow, those look terrific, Brainheart. Only, the yellow in the Catacomb of Famine is slightly difficult to make out.

Can't wait to see the map of everything. :o

Ok, made Catacomb of Famine background a bit darker.

I was thinking of putting them all together, but is there sense in it really ? It would be too big and messy, with 27+
monster dots... also smaller images are easier to publish on web site.

That's a lot more clear.

As for the latter, completely up to you. We'll eventually have a complete Dungeon Map section of the website (the difference between this guide and the dungeon map of the Stronghold of Security is that the dungeon map would be a much briefer outline basically outlining just the NPCs) and with that we'll most likely need to have a map of all the Stronghold on one page.
