Menaphos Sophanem Unknown

Sophanem, the "City of the Dead", is located far south in the Kharidian Desert, right on the edge of the map. In order to gain access to this city, players either need to progress far enough into the Icthlarin's Little Helper quest, or they may enter by teleporting to the Pyramid Plunder minigame using the Pharaoh's sceptre, then exiting the pyramid. The city is currently being afflicted by several plagues. A bank and some shops open after Contact! quest. Players come here to get good Thieving experience at Pyramid Plunder or for a hard clue scroll.
