Ali Morrisane is a greedy, cunning and infamous Pollnivnian merchant who is always on the lookout for new business opportunities. He is located on the market in the northern part of Al Kharid, not far from the silk trader. He will often sell useless junk to players for about 10 coins each without the player's consent.

History[edit | edit source]

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 five years. His known family members are his nephew Ali Baba (who may not actually exist), his young son, Farid, who works at the Grand Exchange in Varrock, and a cousin by the name of Alex the Brave. 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. It is also said in Postbag from the Hedge that he drove lesser demons from unknown parts to Crandor. Despite owning a small stall, he seems to be very rich, employing many people and devising large schemes and scams that make him richer.

Ali is the founder of AMCE (known as Ali Morrisane Commerical Enterprises), an apparently all-rounded company that creates items such as mining cranes and instructional guides for pirates.

Home Woes[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during The Feud.

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.

Bacon Enterprise[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Bringing Home the Bacon.

When Ali heard about bacon's rising popularity, he was able to contact Eli, pretending to be a representative of the Chef's Guild and made to a deal in which he it would be registered in return for 30% of Eli's earnings from said product.

Pyramid Plunder[edit | edit source]

The following takes place during Missing My Mummy.

Ali hired a group of desert bandits to loot a mastaba near Uzer for wealth. He supplied them with his own "ACME"-branded gear, all of which were broken. The bandits looted a significant amount of the mastaba, but were unable to obtain much other than some documents. Ali kept an original, selling some to Reldo and had the rest scrapped. The adventurer, who found a journal that mentioned Ali, visited him and requested the documents. Ali gave them in return for some sq'irk juice. However, they needed the original to restore Senliten, which the adventurer managed to charm with Charos' ring.

If inquired about the equipment, Ali will claim that the men did not follow his instructions. He did not care about their demise either.

Shops[edit | edit source]

Main article: Ali's Discount Wares

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.

Ali Morrisane Stall (after Rogue Trader)

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

Each time the player talks to Ali Morrisane, he will try to sell the player something. Upon failing to resist, Ali will forcibly sell the player a bucket, a tinderbox, a knife, a raw chicken, or a bronze pickaxe, and 10 coins will be removed from the player's money pouch. However, some of these items may be sold back to Ali Morrisane or on the Grand Exchange to obtain a profit.

Rogue Trader[edit | edit source]

Main article: Rogue Trader

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.
