Old Man Ral is an elderly man usually found near the entrance of Meiyerditch. Old Man Ral is something of a sage within Meiyerditch, and regularly uses his knowledge to help both the Myreque and the ghetto's residents. He has knowledge of the Myreque operating in Meiyerditch, and during the Darkness of Hallowvale quest he shows players how to navigate Meiyerditch by following secret pathways.
Ral plays a small role in the Darkness of Hallowvale quest. After players compliment him, he tells them the location of the Sanguinesti Myreque Hideout. He can only be helpful after the player has spoken to a citizen about him.
Ral can be tricky to locate for the first time during Darkness of Hallowvale. He resides in a building down an alleyway northwest of the wall where you land the boat to access Meiyerditch along with a few other citizens (three buildings north of the wall rubble that you climb over; also one building north of Trader Sven). Old Man Ral carries a staff, wears a brown hat, and wears brown clothes.
Old Man Ral is the solution to the master anagram clue: MOLD LA RAN. He will give you either a light or puzzle box to solve.
