Al Kharid, seen elsewhere as Al-Kharid and originally known as Al Karid is a town that thrives on commerce. Flanked by gaudy bazaars and stalls selling various curios, it is never short of vendors wishing to fill your sandy hands with all sorts of unnecessary items. Luckily, they are also willing to buy, making Al Kharid a vital marketplace for the budding merchant.
The town itself is a mixture of white stone and marquees, patrolled by amorous camels and ruled over by the Emir. Al Kharid guards defend him with their lives from within his palace, suspiciously eyeing any trespassing stranger that happens to stumble in.
To the north lies a mine filled with low-level scorpions and various ores ready for extraction. Beyond this chasm can be found a pass to Varrock.
Westwards is Lumbridge, from where you gain access to Al Kharid. There is a gate that separates the two towns to the north, and a jetty that connects the towns to the south.
Immediately to the south is Shantay Pass, guarded by its surly namesake, Shantay. Beyond this lie the members' areas of the Kharidian Desert, Menaphos and Sophanem, amongst others.
On the west coast is a shipmaster, waiting to take valiant adventurers to Daemonheim, on the east coast of the Wilderness, where they can train their Dungeoneering. Passage is free.
Points of Interest
Mubariz's Duel Arena lies to the north-east of Al Kharid, where adventurers can take their aggression out on each other using various combat scenarios; all under the careful supervision of the Duel Arena hospital.
The fire altar can be accessed, with the right equipment and skills, through a mysterious scattering of ruins to the north-east.
A mine, filled with scorpions, lies to the north. Apart from offering valuable combat experience, these scorpions guard a variety of ores for extraction. High Mining levels may be necessary to get the best from this site, while a bank is some distance away in south-west Al Kharid.
Osman, spymaster to the Emir, is an interesting man to know, especially for budding thieves. Those who have rescued Prince Ali might like to try their hand at the Sorceress's Garden.
The extraordinary Ali Morrisane, bazaar merchant, entrepreneur and occasional trickster lives north of the town, where members may purchase overpriced trinkets or be sent on noble quests.
Zeke's Superior Scimitars situated directly north of the palace offers adventurers the ability to purchase scimitars up to mithril from him if they feel his prices worth the value of these vicious curved swords. Adventurers may also buy platelegs up to adamant from Louie's Armoured Legs Bazaar to the east of the palace. Ranael's Super Skirt Store to the south offers leg armour of the exact quality as Louie, albeit with a bit more style.
Like all other major cities, one may find the Al Kharid General Store directly to the north of Louie. Adventurers may also discover Dommik's crafting store to the northeast; the quintessential place to stock your toolbelt with useful moulds for crafting.
One of Gielinor's few tanners can be found to the west of the town.
