Ali Morrisane chathead.png

Ali Morrisane is a greedy, cunning and (in)famous Pollnivnian merchant who is always on the lookout for new business opportunities. He is located on the market in north-eastern part of Al Kharid not far from the cactus patch. He will often sell useless junk to players without the player's consent. He is the owner and namesake of Ali Morrisane Commercial Enterprises Ltd., a company engaging in a variety of activities, and the brain behind the magic carpet fleet operating in the desert.

He was born in Pollnivneach and is prejudiced by the citizens of Al Kharid because of this. He is often called a lowlife for his greedy deeds and was put in an unknown prison for 5 years. His known family members are his son Farid Morrisane and nephew Ali Baba (who may not actually exist). He wrote a very basic guide on how to kill things, which can be read in the Varrock dummy training area by the east bank. Despite owning a small stall, he seems to be very rich, employing many people and devising large schemes and scams that make him richer.

Appearing harmless, Ali is a brilliant businessman who crosses all limits when trying to achieve his goal. After having an adventurer settle a feud between bandits and Menaphites that follow Amascut in his home town, he "invites" a number of his nephew's acquaintances to Al Kharid to set up business. In reality, this farmer, tailor, smith and guard (Ali, Ali, Ali and Ali respectively)'s jobs are to threaten all of the town's shopkeepers, or rather, anyone who offers services or goods for payment, to join Ali's chain of business or have theirs taken down. Nevertheless, the shopkeepers of Al Kharid continue to live their lives naturally, knowing that Chancellor Hassan has put Spymaster Osman and the Elite Guard on it. When asked about it, Ali denies involvement and promises to have a talk with the Alis, explaining their behaviour by claiming they are simply enthusiastic from the move.

Shops[edit | edit source]

Ali owns a shop of general stock that functions like an ordinary general store, though players can only sell back the items he carries, unlike general stores. Players can buy desert robes here.

After the completion of the Rogue Trader miniquest, he expands his shop to sell:

Note: Each time the player talks to Ali Morrisane, he will try to sell the player something. If the player has at least 10 coins in their inventory, he will forcibly sell them either a raw chicken, tinderbox, bronze pickaxe, bucket or knife for 10 coins. However, some of these items can be sold on the Grand Exchange for a small profit.

Rogue Trader[edit | edit source]

Once The Feud quest has been completed, Ali Morrisane will need the player's help once again. He wants to expand his business, and will require the perseverance of the player to deal with various suppliers all over RuneScape. One part of this miniquest includes a sudoku-style puzzle, which increases the types of runes that can be purchased. When the GE was instituted, the cost of runes were greatly increased and it is now rare to see players playing the puzzle or purchasing runes from Ali.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ali will attempt to convince the player to help him get business contacts by reminding the player they would get discounted magic carpet rides, even if the player has already completed the hard desert diary, which would make all carpet rides free.
  • In the second Postbag from the Hedge, the Crandorian lesser demons state that they bought a package holiday from Ali, who claimed they would easily be able to get a ticket back home. They conclude that he lied.[1]
  • Gnome Air is extremely sceptical of Ali Morrisane's air travel endeavours and indeed has filed litigations against him to the Supreme Rune Court.
