|Secret Malas Locations; by Anev
Throughout Malas there
are eight locations that can only
be reached by using a specially marked rune. You have to gather
these special runes by dropping any rune in to either a special
pouch or bone container, which are all hidden around Malas.
These pouches and the bone container are all placed around
the mystical lands of Malas (actually there are nine containers
but only eight locations, the last doesn't seem to work ...
perhaps no one has figured it out yet). Once you find one
of these containers take any rune, either marked or not, and
drop it in the pouch or bone container. These small containers
then will magically mark the rune for you and once you retrieve
it, you can then recall or gate to these secret places. No
vile critters seem to stock these sealed off locations but
that isn't always true of the magical pouches, which usually
have something around them making your task a bit harder.
When searching for the pouch locations, you will need to
make sure you have your "Circle of Transparency"
turned on (click on Options then click on the UO Logo. Click
the check box next to "Use circle of transparency"
and then "Set radius of transparency circle" to
90 or better).
You can drop multiple runes in the containers and they will
all be marked for you. Keep in mind that they mark to the
exact same place so if your making runebooks it might get
frustrating for those using the runes and runebooks since
they will have to wait for someone to move. If you run in
to a locked pouch, simply use magic Unlock and you can then
use the pouch to mark you a rune.

of the small mountain opposite the Northern
Crags, located just behind a tree ... you'll
find this small pouch. Be careful and make
sure you watch out for Crystal
Elementals that wander this area. Once
marked, the rune will take you to the northeast
side of the Broken Mountains near the large
abandoned orc fort.

37'N 160o 14'E
a tad bit west of Grimswind Ruins you'll find the
secret pouch stashed away in the trees. Be careful
of the wandering Flesh
Golems who tend to get very angry with those
wandering in their area. This run will take you
to a small floating island north of the Northern
Crags and not far from where you got the rune for
the first location!
51'N 28o 45'W
23'N 21o 22'W
the small orc fort north of Luna just lying on the ground is
yet another mysterious pouch. However, this orc fort is not
abandoned and its protectors don't take kindly to strangers.
Be careful of them and watch out for the mage who hides inside!
Once you manage to get away with the rune, it will take you
to the northern tip of the Broken Mountains.

41'N 18o 25'W
West of the large marble bridge leading to Luna on the northern
edge of the Crumbling Continent. You'll find a large white tree
with various daemon skulls lying about. The rune marked by this
pouch will take you high up atop the western ridge of the Broken
41'N 19o 7'W

inside Hanse's Hostel, as you travel the road from Luna to Umbra,
you will find friendly staff waiting to greet you and behind
the bar, sitting on the floor, is yet another mysterious pouch.
The markings on this rune will take you to the edge of the northern
Broken Mountains, not far from the Hostel if you could climb
mountains this high!
46'N 0o 12'E
9'N 8o 34'W
far from Luna, as you travel east, you will find an out stretch
of the Northern Crags. As you get closure to the edge of the
mountain you will find a small patch of crystal fen plants that
are almost touching the mountainside. The rune from this location
will take you the farthest southern edge of the Broken Mountains.

pouch is hidden away inside the battlements that surround Luna.
Once inside the battlements (no easy task with all the bright
walls and people wandering about) on the southern most corner
of these high walls, take the stairs down to the store room
on the bottom floor where you will find a pouch sitting on the
floor near the southern wall. Markings on this rune take you
to a very tiny, yet charming, mountain clearing at the tip of
the Broken Mountains.

|Destination: 33o 29'N 48o 47'E ????
north of the abandoned Orc Fort not far from the Broken Mountains
up in a small forest area you'll find the home of some fairies.
For those with bad karma, be weary of these gentle creatures,
as they can get rather mean. It seems the fairies won't reveal
any clues on this secluded pouch; they have even made sure that
this pouch is hard to get too. You will need to teleport in
to the small clump of trees protecting it. However, after getting
the rune you will find it doesn't lead anywhere. Dropping the
rune in a runebook seems to show you some location outside Umbra
but why such a secret over this and why won't the rune work
when you try to use it?
