|Location on World Map|
Mort'ton is located in Morytania, south of the Mort Myre Swamp. The town is populated with undead, like the afflicted and shades. The town has a general store and is the start for the Shades of Mort'ton quest and the Shades of Mort’ton minigame. If you are doing the Shades of Mort'ton quest it is best for players to go to world 377 to build the temple as most people are there building the temple. Barrows can be found just east of the city.
Mort'ton was once a quiet market town that specialised in death. By using the natural caves underneath the town as tombs, Mort'ton became a centre for burials. Unfortunately the foul vapours from the Sanguenesti region cursed the villagers of Mort’ton, turning them into afflicted. The dead interred below the town were resurrected as Loar Shades and plague the town, draining the life force of visitors.

- The name Mort'ton is likely a play on the french word "mort" meaning dead or death and the suffix "ton", which is a common suffix used in place names.
