Pollnivneach (pronounced "POL-niv-neech") is a town located in the middle of the Kharidian Desert, wherein the desert heat does not affect the player. It is notable for featuring heavily in The Feud quest, and for its citizens, most of who go by the alias "Ali".

The Menaphite and Bandit gangs are the source of the conflict which engulfs Pollnivneach. The Bandits control the northern half of the town, while the Menaphites control the southern half. Both gangs are constantly engaging in a turf war, and hold much influence and power over the entire town, including the mayor.

Transportation[edit | edit source]

Magic Carpet[edit | edit source]

Aside from walking to Pollnivneach and facing the harsh effects of the desert, players may use Ali Morrisane's magic carpet system from the north or south of town. Each route starts at 200 coins per trip:

House Teleport[edit | edit source]

If a player's house portal is in Pollnivneach, they may use the house teleport spell to reach the portal, thus bringing them to Pollnivneach.

Similarly, a scroll of redirection on a teleport to house tablet allows the player to teleport to the House Portal, requiring level 20 Construction.

Enemies[edit | edit source]

Pollnivneach hosts many enemies. Some of these enemies are human while some, outside of the town, are not.

Humans[edit | edit source]

  • Menaphites - The Menaphites came to Pollnivneach and, ever since, there has been trouble. They are in constant battle with the Bandits and add to the city's crime rate. They are non-aggressive. Menaphites populate the southern part of town. With combat levels of 54, except for one level 74, they are slightly dangerous to lower levelled players.
  • Bandits - The Bandits were hired by the leader of the town to rid the city of the Menaphites. When the town discovered they were bad, they tried to get rid of them but, they refused to leave and are now in constant battle with the Menaphites. They are non-aggressive. Bandits populate the northern side of town. They may be fairly dangerous to lower levelled players. Their combat levels are 54 except one level 14.

Creatures[edit | edit source]

  • Crocodiles - Crocodiles populate the area south of town and may be dangerous to lower levelled players as their combat level is 63. They are aggressive. It should be noted that the area south of town has the effects of the desert and, unlike town, water is required in the form of waterskins.
  • Desert snakes - Level 5 snakes surround the Menaphite thug tent in the south-west of Pollnivneach. They are not aggressive, or poisonous, but can be killed for the Snake spine drop during Rag and Bone Man II.
  • Jackals - Slightly south-west of the Menaphite tent, next to the crocodiles, is a pack of jackals. These are aggressive to players with a combat level of 42 or less and can wander into areas affected by Desert heat.

Agility Course[edit | edit source]

Players with 70 Agility can use the Pollnivneach Rooftop Course, by climbing the basket north-west of the bar. The course finishes at a house in the north part of the city, directly east of the magic carpet system.
