Slepe (pronounced "sleep") is a small coastal town which occupies an area east of Meiyerditch and Darkmeyer. The town is home to the sleeper plague, which causes infected people to fall into a deep eternal sleep, giving the town its name.
History[edit | edit source]
The town was originally founded by Lady Phosani and her band of former Saradominist Justiciars who abandoned Saradomin's cause following Lowerniel Drakan's conquest of the area then known as Hallowvale. Phosani and the others offered their troops as tithes and sacrifices to Lowerniel, who accepted their offer. In return, he allowed them the land east of Darkmeyer. Phosani and the others created a small hermitage and grew a Zamorakian sisterhood, attracting more like-minded human followers in the process.
Compared to the other human settlements of Morytania, Slepe was the only settlement where their inhabitants willingly gave up their blood to the tithe collectors.
Eventually, Otrava discovered the Elixir of Everlasting, a potion said to extend the lifespan of those who drank it. Phosani and the others, who wished to live as long as their vampyre overlords, drank the potion, unaware of its deadly side effect at the time. With this potion, the members of the Sisterhood oversaw the construction of an underground sanctuary due to their revitalized youth.
The deadly side effect of the potion kicked in sometime afterwards. Seeing the danger the potion caused, the inhabitants of Slepe moved the afflicted to the sanctuary and locked them inside for their own safety. The town, called Sleep at the time, was soon changed to Slepe in an unknown incident. The locals dubbed the disease as the Sleeper Plague, but due to the precautions set in place by Phosani, there appeared to be no further incidents until Year 169 of the Fifth Age, when the Sleeper Plague was recreated by the vampyre Kroy and his master Damien Leucurte to gather more blood. The locals blamed it on the Painted One, who was actually a traveler from Varlamore, and killed him in the mistaken belief that it would end the plague. Kroy and Damien were killed at the same time, which ended the re-emergence of the plague.
However, more than enough damage had been done, as the locals were unable to cure those afflicted, and in addition to this, a malevolent entity broke into the underground sanctuary to feast on those afflicted by the Sleeper Plague.
Getting there[edit | edit source]
The quickest methods of reaching Slepe are as follows:
- Teleporting to Ver Sinhaza via Drakan's medallion, then running north. Once players pass the small dock, run east to arrive at Slepe.
- Using the Ectophial to teleport to the Ectofuntus, then heading north to the small dock and paying Andras 10,000 coins to row to Slepe. The player will arrive at a dock just south-west of Slepe.
- Teleporting to Darkmeyer via Drakan's medallion, then use the shortcut on the eastern wall of Darkmeyer.
- Using Morytania legs 3 & 4 to teleport to Burgh de Rott, then take the boat by the shore.

Port[edit | edit source]
Players can travel between Port Phasmatys (just outside the town, north of the Ectofuntus) and the small port south-west of Slepe. Andras charges players 10,000 coins if they are travelling to Slepe from Port Phasmatys, but will not charge them if they are travelling to Port Phasmatys from Slepe.

Sisterhood Sanctuary[edit | edit source]
Under the town is the Sisterhood Sanctuary, accessible by climbing down the stairs in the small house next to the church.
Manor[edit | edit source]
The Crombwick Manor is the residence of Lord Crombwick. As the entrances to the manor are locked, it is only accessible via the ladder in Kroy's laboratory in the Sisterhood Sanctuary. It has been invaded by Damien Leucurte, vampyre juveniles and vyrewatch, and as a result appears messy.
