A detailed image of Father Uhrney.

Father Urhney is an irritable priest who lives as a hermit in the Lumbridge Swamp. He has left Lumbridge to perform a full two-years meditation and retreat. Father Urhney plays a role in The Restless Ghost Quest, giving the player an Amulet of Ghostspeak, which is required to speak to the Restless Ghost in Lumbridge. If the player loses the Amulet of Ghostspeak, even after the quest is done, he will provide the player with a new amulet. Father Uhrney also happens to be a well-known exorcist. Father Urhney never stops meditating. He explains this in an issue of Postbag fron the Hedge, saying he has to start his two years of solitude over again if spoken to.

I require a two year period of silent contemplation, yet I rarely manage even a week before one of these crazed lunatics arrives at my shack threatening to repossess my home due to failed mortgage repayments. Rather bizarely as I constructed my shack myself with my own two hands. And each time they force me into conversation, my two year period must begin anew.

The location of Father Uhrney's house in the Lumbridge Swamp.


  • His shack used to be located on the east side of the swamp but they changed it when they made an opening in the Lumbridge graveyard.
  • If you contact him with the NPC Contact spell, he will think you are Saradomin. You will tell him to 'Stop sitting around in a house in a swamp and go and do something useful,' though, unsurprisingly, Urhney will meditate on the message.
  • During the Advisors and Objectives update, a lot of things in Misthalin have been added such as new roads, bridges and shops. If you visited Father Urhney's shack before 17 September, then you would have realised that his shack has rotated on a 180 degree angle. The entrance used to be on the south, now it is on the north.
  • During a hidden update, Father Urhney's shack was moved once again, but this time it was moved south of the Zanaris shack.
  • There is an option to pickpocket Father Urhney but when trying to do so, you get the message "You don't want to dip into those pockets without good reason. They're holy...and filthy."
