The Greatest Salesman in the WorldEdit

  • Ali Morrisane: Good day and welcome back to Al Kharid.
  • Player: Hello to you too.
  • Ali Morrisane: My name is Ali Morrisane – the greatest salesman in the world.
    • Player: If you are, then why are you still selling goods from a stall?
      • Ali Morrisane: Well one can only do and sell so much. If I had more staff I'd be able to sell more, rather than waste my time on menial things I could get on with selling sand to the Bedabin and useless tourist trinkets to everyone.
        • Player: I'm far too busy – adventuring is a full time job you know.
        • Player: I'd like to help you but......
          • Ali Morrisane: Yes I know, I know – the life of a shop keeper isn't slaying dragons and wooing damsels but it has its charms. Although you can help me in another way, a nephew of mine lives not too far from here in a little town called Pollnivneach. If you could fetch him here I'll give you the first month of his salary!
            • Player: I'm far too busy to carry out errands for shopkeepers – maybe later.
            • Player: I'll find you your help. But you had better become the biggest merchant in RuneScape once I succeed!
              • Ali Morrisane: Ah, many thanks, my friend. My nephew's name is 'Ali' and he lives to the south in a town called 'Pollnivneach'. Tell him uncle Ali M needs his help up in Al Kharid. Now have a look at my wares.
                • Player: No, I'm really too busy.
                  • Despite your best efforts Ali M still manages to sell you some junk.
                • Player: Okay.
    • Player: So, what are you selling?

InquiriesEdit

  • Drunken Ali: Ahh, a kind stranger. Get this old man a drink, so that he may wet his throat and tell you of strange happenings in this town.
Giving him a beer
  • Drunken Ali: I happen to know that you are looking for somebody.
  • Player: How do you know that?
  • Drunken Ali: Well, you're not here sightseeing, that's for certain. Anyway it's not really important how I know what I know. What is important is that I know all about the person you're looking for.
  • Player: You do? How do you know I'm looking for Ali Morrisane's nephew, Ali?
  • Drunken Ali: I'd tell you more, but my throat is drying up and my lips are dry. This desert climate is an inhospitable one. Get me another beer so that I can continue.
Another beer
  • Drunken Ali: You are too kind, now what were we talking about?
  • Player: Ali Morrisane's nephew.
  • Drunken Ali: I've known him since he was a wee lad. A right little mischievous beggar......
  • Player: That's all fine and well, but do you know any more useful information about him, such as his whereabouts?
  • Drunken Ali: Well now, if you had just asked me about that in the first place I would have told you directly.
  • Player: I'm sorry if I was a little sharp with you, but do you know where he is?
  • Drunken Ali: I'd tell you more, but my throat is drying up and my lips are dry. This desert climate is an inhospitable one. Get me another beer so that I can continue.
Another
  • Drunken Ali: It's yourself again, isn't it? Get this old man another drink so that he may wet his lips and continue.
And another
  • Drunken Ali: It's yourself again, isn't it?
  • Player: Well it would have to be, who else could I possibly be other than myself?
  • Drunken Ali: That's kind of getting a little deep for me, existential reasoning or justification was never my strong suit. So what can I do for you?
  • Player: Um, what? Look, all I want to know is the whereabouts of Ali Morrisane's nephew.
  • Drunken Ali: Now is that his nephew from his side or his wife's? They have a huge family you see. I remember........
  • Player: No no no stop. You are not going to fool me into buying you another beer without first giving me some useful information.
  • Drunken Ali: But my lips are dry, how can I possibly continue?
  • Player: Well if you can't continue, I will just have to wring you like a wet cloth and squeeze out enough booze to fill another tankard. I'd reckon it would hurt though.
  • Drunken Ali: I see. Don't worry about me, I'll just have to soldier on. Now what do you want to know?
  • Player: For the last time, where is Ali Morrisane's nephew?
  • Drunken Ali: I don't know exactly, he disappeared last week, either those Bandits or Menaphites have something to do with it. Perhaps their feuding has something to do with it, perhaps if you were to solve that problem... Anyway is there any chance of another beer?
  • Player: What do you think?

The FeudEdit

A Gesture of GoodwillEdit

MenaphitesEdit

  • Player: Hello.
  • Menaphite Thug: What do you want?
  • Player: I am trying to figure out the feud that exists between you and the Bandits.
  • Menaphite Thug: Not much to figure out there, the problem is those thieving bandits.
  • Player: In what way?
  • Menaphite Thug: They are always stealing, starting fights and causing disruption to the life of the people in this town.
  • Player: Word has it that the Menaphites are also involved in unsavoury behaviour.
  • Menaphite Thug: Admittedly, we are far better than them at that sort of thing, but they did start the cycle.
  • Player: How did 'they' start it?
  • Menaphite Thug: I cannot remember, as it's been going on for so long.
  • Player: Go on try.
  • Menaphite Thug: I think our leader once mentioned that they robbed one of our camels. A heinous crime around here, worthy of a stoning.
  • Player: So if they offered a camel as a gesture of goodwill would the Menaphites cease hostilities?
  • Menaphite Thug: Those bandits would never agree to that. They're such bad thieves they couldn't afford to buy even the mangiest excuse of a camel, never mind the desert traversing four legged beauty that we would demand.
  • Player: But if they did?
  • Menaphite Thug: Well I suppose so.

BanditsEdit

  • Player: Hello.
  • Bandit: What do you want?
  • Player: I am trying to figure out the feud that exists between you and the Menaphites.
  • Bandit: What's it to you?
  • Player: Nothing much I'm just trying to understand why thieves of your repute would stoop to the level of the Menaphites.
  • Bandit: Well if memory serves me correctly, I think my granddad mentioned that they robbed one of our camels. A heinous crime.
  • Player: So if they offered a camel as a gesture of goodwill would you and the rest of the bandits cease your hostilities?
  • Bandit: Those Menaphites would never do that. They have no sense of honour.
  • Player: But if they did?
  • Bandit: Well I suppose so.
  • Player: Maybe if I got both gangs a camel, I could use the mutual goodwill to find out what happened to Ali's nephew.

Ali the Camel ManEdit

  • Ali the Camel Man: Welcome to my discount camel store. Can I help you with anything?
    • Player: A discount camel store?
    • Player: Tell me about this town.
    • Player: Lovely day isn't it?
    • Player: Are those camels around the side for sale?
      • Ali the Camel Man: Those two camels around the side are already sold. But you are in luck – I have another two beautiful camels arriving in soon from the best stable in all of Al Kharid.
      • Player: Camels, beautiful? I worry about you.
        • Player: Can you tell me a little about them?
        • Player: What price do you want for both of them?
          • Ali the Camel Man: One cannot put a price on life, they are precious beyond the worth of the crass value of gold coins!
            • Player: So can I have them for free then?
            • Player: Would 200 gold coins for the pair of them do?
            • Player: Would 500 gold coins for the pair of them do?
            • Player: Would 1000 gold coins for the pair of them do?
              • Ali the Camel Man: You are too generous, I would have sold for half of that!
              • Ali the discount camel seller gives you a receipt for the camels in return for 1000 gold coins.
              • Ali the Camel Man: Here are the receipts for the camels so that you can pick them up as soon as I get them in. Is there anything else I can help you with?
                • Player: Well yes actually I'd like to ask you about something else.
                • Player: No, but thanks for your time.
    • Player: I'm looking for Ali from Pollnivneach.

Ending the Conflict?Edit

One for the MenaphitesEdit

  • Player: Good news, the bandits have agreed to give you a camel in order to restore peace.
  • You hand the doorman a sales receipt for the camel.
  • Menaphite Thug: Really? I knew they were cowards. Tell them that we have changed our minds and demand 10 camels in return for our mercy.
  • Player: Ahhh why do I bother!

One for the BanditsEdit

  • Player: Good news, the Menaphites have agreed to give you a camel in order to restore peace.
  • You hand the guard a sales receipt for the camel.
  • Bandit: Really? I knew they were cowards. Tell them that we have changed our minds and demand 10 camels in return for our mercy.
  • Player: Ahhh why do I bother! This approach doesn't seem to be working, perhaps I should be more direct and try join one of the gangs.

Another ApproachEdit

Prove Your WorthEdit

  • Ali the Operator: You seem to be a [man/woman] of action. We could do with more people like you to sort those despicable bandits out.
  • Player: Yeah, those pesky bandits!
  • Ali the Operator: So will you join us in our fight to wipe them out?
    • Player: Yes, of course, those bandits should be taught a lesson.
      • Ali the Operator: Good choice my friend, together we will crush them.
      • Player: So when do we start?
      • Ali the Operator: Slow down, slow down. First you must prove yourself capable and trustworthy.
      • Player: How will I manage that?
      • Ali the Operator: Don't worry about that, I'll just set you a few jobs to do. As you might have gathered we have the reputation for being less than scrupulous, something with good foundation. So I want you to foster this reputation and grow it.
      • Player: What exactly does that mean?
      • Ali the Operator: It means that I want you to go out into the town and pickpocket 3 villagers and then report back to me. IF you have any problems don't be afraid to ask for some advice.
      • Player: Oh right, thanks.
      • Ali the Operator: Can I help you with anything else?
        • Player: Yes I'd like to ask you about something else.
        • Player: No thanks.
    • Player: Perhaps later, I'm quite busy at the moment.

Pollnivneach PickpocketingEdit

Luring a villager
  • Player: Psst. Come here, I want to show you something.
  • Villager: What is it?
  • Player: It's a surprise! Follow me.
Bribing an urchin
  • Player: Hey kid, come here!
  • Street urchin: What do you want?
  • Player: I need a little help, do you want to make some easy money?
  • Street urchin: That depends.
  • Player: Do you see that villager over there? Well if you could distract him for a bit I'll give you 10 gold coins.
  • Street urchin: Is that it?
  • Player: Ya it's simple but just do it and do it right.
  • Street urchin: Ya, I see them. Give me a sec.
Villager being distracted
  • Street urchin: Hey you, camel features! Come here.
  • Villager: What me?
Talking to Street urchin after
  • Player: Hey there!
  • Street urchin: Did you see the way I distracted that guy? Man I'm one smooth operator.
  • Player: Ya you were good alright.
  • Street urchin: So where's my money?
    • Player: What money?
    • Player: Here you go, thanks.
      • Street urchin: Thanks [sir/ma'am], I didn't think you would hold up your side of the deal. There's not much honour among thieves, you know. Well do you need any other information then?
        • Player: Yes tell me about...
        • Player: No thanks.
Speaking to the urchin again
  • Player: Hey there!
  • Street urchin: Hi! Do you want to go rob some more people? I could do with some more money.
  • Player: Ok, let's do it again.
  • [Cut off]
Talking to Ali after the second pickpocket
  • Ali the Operator: Having problems?
    • Player: Yeah, I could do with a bit of advice.
      • Ali the Operator: The distraction tactic isn't working any more?
      • Player: No they seem to have figured that one out already.
      • Ali the Operator: It is a small town, news spreads fast. Perhaps using a spot of cunning and a bit of brute force might work better.
      • Ali 'The Operator' hands you a Blackjack made out of oak.
    • Player: Nah, no problems here. I want to ask you about something else.

Desert HeistEdit

Jewel ThiefEdit

  • Ali the Operator: Well done! You have finished your first trial.
  • Player: First trial?
  • Ali the Operator: You hardly think that a couple of pick-pocketings would do, did you?
  • Player: Ah, of course not.
  • Ali the Operator: Good, now the next thing you have to do is a spot of burglary. The only place worth pilfering is the mayor's villa. I want you to retrieve the mayor's wife's jewels.
  • Player: Got any advice?
  • Ali the Operator: Well I think that a disguise would be a good start. After that I would definitely stake out the place to make sure the mayor is not in. You'll need a key to the front door too.
  • Ali the Operator hands you a set of keys.
  • Player: Anything else?
  • Ali the Operator: No! Now get going.

The VillaEdit

Attempting to enter the villa before staking out the place
  • I had better stake the place out first, the mayor or some of his family may be in.
Hiding behind the cactus
  • I had better be careful, this cactus is prickly!
  • The coast is clear, there appears to be nobody home.
Searching the desk
  • You find an interesting note on the desk.

(Note: These numbers contained within, A sequence age old begin, Have a look, Where do they fit in? 1,1,2,3,5... )

Searching the bed
  • You find a flattened note under the mattress.

(Note: The piece of paper has the word 'Fibonacci' scrawled on it. )

Searching painting
  • On the wall hangs a rather nondescript picture. On closer inspection you notice that it's covering something: a safe.
Once done
  • You remove the jewels from the safe.

Rooting out the RatEdit

We Have a Traitor in Our MidstEdit

  • Player: I completed your task.
  • Ali the Operator: Impressive, I didn't expect you to succeed so soon with cracking that safe. Did you have help?
  • Player: Of course not, although the mayor did leave a number of hints lying around.
  • Ali the Operator: That mayor is a fool. Now give me the jewels.
  • You hand Ali the Operator the jewels.
  • Ali the Operator: now your final task is one of the upmost importance. It has come to my attention that there is a traitor in our midst.
  • Player: Oh really?
  • Ali the Operator: Yes and I want you to root them out.
  • Player: Why me?
  • Ali the Operator: Because I feel like I can trust you. You don't have all the baggage that comes with being a villain your entire life.
  • Player: You can count on me to find out.
  • Ali the Operator: Well then get to it.

GossipEdit

  • Player: I was wondering if you could help me?
  • Menaphite Thug: Tell me what your problem is and I'll know if I can.
  • Player: I'm investigating the possibility of a betrayal in the Menaphites, do you know anything about this?
  • Menaphite Thug: It wasn't me, I honestly swear.
  • Player: Really? So do you know anything about this?
  • Menaphite Thug: Well there is Traitorous Ali.
  • Player: Who is he then?
  • Menaphite Thug: Possibly the most untrustworthy backstabbing fiend to ever walk Tumeken's fair desert. He'd sell his mother to slavers if he hadn't already betrayed her and had her locked up for the last job he pulled.
  • Player: I suppose the name is a bit of a give-away then. That was a little too simple, are you sure it was him?
  • Menaphite Thug: Positive, he was turned by the offer of a set of waterproofs and a ride on a camel.
  • Player: I see he drives a hard bargain.
  • Menaphite Thug: Well what can I say, he doesn't have that name for being loyal!

The Big RevealEdit

  • Player: I have discovered the identity of the traitor, strangely enough it was traitorous Ali!
  • Ali the Operator: No! I would never have suspected that 'Traitorous Ali' would betray us. Actually... what am I saying! Of course it would have been him. He betrayed his family for a sandpit and an umbrella! I'm sure he sold us out for much more.
  • Player: Actually he sold you out for...
  • Ali the Operator: Stop, I don't want to know. It hurts too much already. Find him and then kill him, but do it quietly, I don't want a fuss. Can I help you with anything else?
    • Player: Yes I'd like to ask you about something else.
    • Player: No thanks.

Specific ServicesEdit

  • Player: Good day, old hag.
  • Ali the Hag: Old hag indeed! I have a name you know!
  • Player: Let me guess it wouldn't be Ali would it?
  • Ali the Hag: Well how else would you abbreviate Alice then? And no, you can't call me Al! Now what do you want from me then? A hex? A spot potion? Power, beauty, eternal youth or something else drab like that?
  • Player: Actually I just want your help to, erm, remove someone. It's simple enough!
  • Ali the Hag: Ahh, I see. But that is rarely a simple matter. Extinguishing the flame of life is simple, but people rarely wish to face the consequences, and I doubt you are any different.
  • Player: Well, yes, I would like it carried out in a manner which would draw no suspicion to me.
  • Ali the Hag: well now this is getting interesting. I'd recommend a poisoning. Who do you wish dead? I need to know so that I can tailor a poison to their specific needs!
  • Player: 'Traitorous Ali' please.
  • Ali the Hag: Please? Never have I heard a more inappropriate use of that foul word. Traitorous Ali you say... I believe he should be easily gotten rid of.
  • Player: So what payment do you require?
  • Ali the Hag: None, I will extract much pleasure from his passing, just bring me the ingredients I require.
  • Player: So what do you need?
  • Ali the Hag: Ah, impatience! Traitorous Ali's time is indeed nigh. Firstly bring me some snake venom, which will act as the main toxin.
  • Player: Where would I get some snake poison?
  • Ali the Hag: From a snake perhaps?
  • Player: What I meant was how do I extract the poison from the snake?
  • Ali the Hag: Sheesh! You'd never make a chemist, never mind an alchemist. Just bring me a snake, with teeth in its head and don't even think of giving me that snake charmer's pet worm, it's about as dangerous as a rubber knife.

How CharmingEdit

Talking to the snake charmer initially
  • Player: Wow a snake charmer. Can I have a go? Can I have a go? Please?
  • The snake charmer fails to acknowledge you, he seems too deep into the music to notice you.
Using coins on his pot
  • The snake charmer snaps out of his trance and directs his full attention to you.
  • Player: Wow a snake charmer. Can I have a go? Can I have a go? Please?
  • Ali the Snake Charmer: If it means that you'll leave me alone, I would give you my snake charming super starter kit complete with flute and basket.
  • The snake charmer gives you a snake charming flute and basket.

It's a Dirty JobEdit

  • Player: Hello.
  • Ali the Kebab seller: Hello. What can I do for you?
  • Player: I don't know, what can you do for me?
  • Ali the Kebab seller: Well, that depends.
  • Player: Depends on what?
  • Ali the Kebab seller: It depends on whether you like kebabs or not.
  • Player: Why is that?
  • Ali the Kebab seller: Seeing as I'm in the kebab construction industry, I mainly help people who have want of a kebab.
  • Player: Well then, what kind of kebabs do you, erm, construct?
  • Ali the Kebab seller: I offer two different types of kebabs: the standard run-of-the-mill kebab seen throughout Runescape and enjoyed by many an intoxicated dwarf, and my specialty, the extra-hot kebab. So which shall it be? Or are my services even required?
  • Player: Yes, thanks.
    • Player: I want a kebab, please.
    • Player: Could I have an extra-hot kebab please?
    • Player: Would you sell me that bottle of special kebab sauce?
      • Ali the Kebab seller: Well, that depends on what you have in mind.
      • Player: Set yourself at ease, I have no intention of setting up a rival kebab shop.
      • Ali the Kebab seller: Well then, what do you want it for?
      • Player: I don't know, but I think I could have a bit of fun with it.
      • Ali the Kebab seller: You're not going to put it in drunken Ali's drink now, are you? That's what happened the last time I gave someone the sauce.
      • Player: No, that would be a bit cliché. I think I'll come up with something more original.
      • Ali the Kebab seller: Just be careful with it, it's potent enough to give a camel the runs.
      • Player: Thank you very much.
    • Player: What is the difference between the standard and the extra-hot kebab?
    • Player: I need some information.

Pick Your PoisonEdit

  • Player: Good day, Ali.
  • Ali the Hag: Good day to you too adventurer.
  • Player: Ok I have the snake, now what else do you need?
  • Ali the Hag: Ah yes that snake will do just fine, a nice agonising death for Ali of course. I'd never kill a fellow vindictive, nasty soul such as Snuggles the snake here!
  • Player: Am, yes, well is there anything else I can get?
  • Ali the Hag: Ah yes, now that I have the toxin I need something to hide its trace, fresh camel dung should do the job.
  • Player: What? That's disgusting.
  • Ali the Hag: Do you want the poison or not?
  • Player: Ok ok, I'll get some.
  • Ali the Hag: And don't forget it has to be fresh. Now are you going to give me the snake or not?
  • Player: Oops I almost forgot.
  • You hand over the basket with the charmed snake over to the old hag.
Receiving the poison
  • Player: Good day, Ali.
  • Ali the Hag: Good day to you too adventurer. I have the poison already mixed, I just needed the ingredients to prepare another batch, you wouldn't believe the demand, its been murder.
  • Player: That's not even remotely funny.
  • Ali the Hag: Sorry, I've been dying to say that for ages.
  • Player: Just stop. Thanks for the potion and good day to you.
  • Ali the Hag: Now remember. This poison isn't designed to be used on a weapon. In fact it's not a contact poison at all. You'll have to do more than just smear it on a blade!
  • Player: Ok, and thanks again.
  • You receive a vial of poison from the witch in return for the bucket of fresh camel dung.

The DeedEdit

  • Player: Hello there.
  • Ali the Barman: Good day. Can I help you with anything?
    • Yes, I'd like a drink please.
    • Player: What's going on in town?
    • Player: I'm looking for Traitorous Ali.
      • Ali the Barman: He is here, actually he was here! He's just nipped out to go to the toilet a few minutes ago. His drink is over there on the table by those barrels. The only problem is that no one has ever actually seen a toilet in RuneScape so he may take a little while. Is there anything else I can help you with?
        • Player: No thanks I'm ok. Thanks for your time.
        • Player: Yes, I'd like to talk about something else.
    • Player: I'm looking for Ali from Pollnivneach.
    • Player: The 'Asp and Snake'? What a strange name for a bar.

Moving On UpEdit

  • Ali the Operator: Is the deed done?
  • Player: Almost, his drink is poisoned, as soon as he gets back, he'll be done for.
  • Ali the Operator: You have proven yourself to be worthy of the bosses presence. He wants to see you know to discuss the future direction of the gang.

Resolving the SituationEdit

I've Had It!Edit

  • Player: Ali the operator told me that you wanted to see me.
  • Menaphite Leader: That's right, I have been keeping track of your progress. It was impressive.
  • Player: So what plans for the bandits?
  • Menaphite Leader: The bandits? A mere nuisance, insignificant in my overall plans.
  • Player: So if you're not warring with the bandits what then are you planning for?
  • Menaphite Leader: World domination, first Pollnivneach, then Al Kharid then the whole of Runescape!
  • Player: What?
  • Menaphite Leader: You do understand who 'We' are?
  • Player: Actually I thought you were a ragtag band of good for nothing thieves sucking the life out of this backwater excuse for a town.
  • Menaphite Leader: Silence! We are the chosen, exiled from Menaphos for trying to overthrow the Pharaoh. Loyal servants of Amascut the Devourer, God of Destruction. We are regrouping to launch another offensive against the thrall of Tumeken, using Pollnivneach as a spawning ground for revolution!
  • Player: That's it, I've had it! I'm just going to have to rid the world of you and your mob – I have this irrational hatred for megalomaniacal, despotic, religious zealots! Prepare to meet Icthy-aly-rin or whoever!
  • Menaphite Leader: Fool! You'll never get to me. Guards protect me. Guards!
  • Tough Guy: Grrr
After defeating Tough Guy
  • Menaphite Leader: You haven't seen the last of me!
  • Player: No doubt I haven't seen the last of you... but what about Ali's nephew?
  • [Maybe cut off]

Unforeseen ConsequencesEdit

Talking to a villager
  • Player: Hello.
  • Villager: Good job, you just made everything worse for us poor villagers!
  • Player: What?! I just single-handedly took apart one of the gangs which was subjugating your village.
  • Villager: You adventurers! You never think, you just act. You think that by killing a powerful bad person, RuneScape will become a better place. It's not that simple, things never are. A vacuum is created – power is available to the person best situated to take it. Who do you think is in the best position to take power, our good mayor or the leader of the bandits?
  • Player: Umm oops, sorry I was just trying to help. So are things really that much worse?
  • Villager: Yes. Before your intervention the two gangs pretty much cancelled each other out. They spend most of their energy trying to kill each other. Now that the balance is lost, the Bandits reign unopposed! They no longer have to deal with the Menaphites and inflict nothing but more misery on us. You must finish the job that you have started.
  • Player: You know, this adventuring lark is a lot more complicated than I thought!
  • Villager: If you're prepared to change something you must also be prepared to deal with the consequences! Now hurry up and fix this mess you created!
    • Player: What do you mean by fix the mess I created?
    • Player: Ok I'll get to it.

Fixing Both EndsEdit

  • Bandit Leader: Come here my friend, so I may embrace you. You have done us a great urn by disposing of those Menaphites.
  • Player: Don't jump to conclusions, I didn't do it for you.
  • Bandit Leader: Regardless, I am still very grateful. Now I have the town at my mercy.
  • Player: That's what I'm here to talk to you about.
  • Bandit Leader: Do you want a reward? A fee? I will not begrudge you that.
  • Player: No, I'm here to give you an ultimatum: either leave the town of your own free will or I will make you.
  • Bandit Leader: How the worm has turned. You who was robbing, looting and poisoning not too long ago are now taking the moral high ground! Or are you trying to keep the whole town for yourself? I will not be run out of my own town without a fight. If you defeat my best warrior I will leave town.
  • Player: Start packing your bags!
  • Bandit champion: Grrr
After winning
  • Player: I have defeated your champion, now get out of town.
  • Bandit Leader: Adventurer... I have underestimated you. Perhaps we can come to an agreement. How about if I work for you? Think of the riches you would make.
  • Player: Don't try my patience, pack your things and get out of town.
  • Bandit Leader: The people's champion, you are so naïve. They won't even thank you for this you know.
  • Player: Sure they will. I think I'll go talk to a villager now, just to prove you wrong. Now get out of town before I really get angry with you.

A Hero's Work...Edit

  • Player: Now are you satisfied?
  • Villager: Oh it's you again!
  • Player: I have delivered you from two evil tyrants, let's see some gratitude.
  • Villager: Gratitude? For what? You come into our town and rob, mug, burgle and kill and then expect respect and our gratitude? Look if it's praise and thanks you're looking for, talk to the mayor.
  • Player: I wonder why I bother sometimes! Ungrateful layabouts! This place has been nothing but trouble and I still haven't found Ali's nephew.

All's Well that Ends Well...Edit

  • Ali the Mayor: My thanks, your methods and motives may be questionable but nonetheless thank you for delivering this town from those wicked individuals. I think now that our problems are at a manageable size, mistakes made in the past will not be repeated. The least that I can do for you is answer your questions about the whereabouts of Ali Morrisane's nephew. He was asked to leave the town as much for concerns for his health and, as sad as it is to admit, the anger of our towns people. He is a good lad but is too good a salesman for his health. He angered a number of people by coercing them into buying things they really didn't want. He acted completely within the letter of the law... but that could only protect him so long. Once he angered the Menaphites and the Bandits I could no longer protect him and he had to go. I can assure you that he is safe and well and now that the threats to his life no longer hold any water he plans to open some kind of superstore with forty of his disreputable friends. A 'treasure trove' he claims. I will believe it when I see it though. He will probably remain hidden for some time. I hope that helps you in your quest. Will you give my apologies to Ali Morrisane for treating his family so.
  • Player: I think I may be able to put one more thing to right. I heard that your house was burgled recently. I think you should ask Ali 'The operator' about that, it may prove beneficial.
  • Ali the Mayor: How do you know this?
  • Player: Let's just put it down to adventurer's intuition.

RealisationEdit

  • Ali Morrisane: Hello again my friend. I see you have not found my troublesome nephew. Have you any news of his whereabouts?
  • Player: Indeed I do. I was able to eventually learn of his whereabouts, although it was a little bit more challenging than I originally thought.
  • Ali Morrisane: Well then tell me what has become of him. Nothing bad I hope.
  • Player: I was able to discover that he is quite the salesman. Perhaps too good. He has roughly forty people working under him. Unfortunately a number of people didn't approve of his sales techniques and as a result he is in hiding.
  • Ali Morrisane: You make an old man very happy. I'm so proud of young Baba.
  • Player: But he's thought a thief.
  • Ali Morrisane: Yes, but by people with too much money and not enough sense. All willingly parted with their money and received what they purchased. Well I still am in need of an assistant... but take the reward anyway.
  • Ali Morrisane gives you 500 coins.
  • Player: I've just been thinking, Ali, there seem to be a few parallels between yourself and your nephew. Both of you are unscrupulous salesmen, both come from the same town and both of you no longer trade there. Were you sent into exile too?
  • Ali Morrisane: I have my reasons.
  • Player: No, now hang on, this seems to me like one of the strangest quests I have ever been involved with. I do not believe that a businessman like you would not know of a competitor, particularly a competitor as talented as your nephew. So what was your motive to get me to visit Pollnivneach? Was it concern for the towns people? Hmm. I don't think so, I'd say you would probably sell your grandmother if you could get a good price for her. What was the reason?
  • Ali Morrisane: My my, you surprise me, you're not as dumb as you look.
  • Player: No, this couldn't have just been a sales pitch to get me to buy a fake beard and headpiece, was it?
  • Ali Morrisane: Ah, once again you underestimate me. I sold you far more than that.
  • Player: Really? Well I did buy some other odds and ends off you... no hang on! I get it now, you're in league with Ali the Camel seller, the Kebab seller, and the mayor aren't you.
  • Ali Morrisane: I like the word 'tourism'. Did you not enjoy your stay in Pollnivneach? Was there not action, intrigue and fun to be had, and did you not notice all the other tourists there too?
  • Player: I must apologise for ever doubting you and your claims to be the best salesman in all of RuneScape.
  • Ali Morrisane: Now that we both agree on that, may I show you my wares?
  • Player: No, I'm really too busy.
