Ur-pel is currently an honorary member of the Dorgeshuun Council, a group of seven Dorgeeshuun led by Ur-tag. It is the council's job to ensure that their capital, Dorgesh-Kaan, is run properly. Because of this, Ur-pel is a distinctive figure amongst the Dorgeshuun, and one of the most important inhabitants of the city.
If players wish to sell surface food in the city's marketplace, they are first required to speak to random member of the council. Because of this, Ur-pel is frequently spoken to by players that visit the city, but the complexity of Dorgesh-Kaan often makes him difficult to locate.
Ur-pel is cautious when it comes to the surface. Due to the gods' dangerous behaviour in the God Wars, Ur-pel is afraid that the gods will discover Dorgesh-Kaan and destroy it, as Bandos destroyed the peaceful goblin civilisation of Yu'biusk. Although the Edicts of Guthix prevent the direct intervention of the gods in Gielinor, he is still wary.
Ur-pel is located on the south end of Dorgesh-Kaan (south of the marketplace), go up the stairs then down again. When you see the furnace on your minimap, pass the wire machine, then turn right and head to the goblin roasting a frog on the spit and head straight down the corridor until you reach a room at the end where Ur-pel will be with Ur-lun.
