Scattered around Monster Hunter Rise’s maps like Lava Caverns are collectible messages called relic records. Both messages and rampage messages look like notes tied to swords stuck in the ground. Approach them, and on-screen text says “old message.”

In this Monster Hunter Rise collectibles guide, we’ll show you the location of every Lava Caverns message and rampage message. Our numbered maps correspond to your in-game notebook, and our screenshots show all relic records locations.

When you collect all old messages in an area, Kagero the Merchant rewards you with decorations for your room. Find all Lava Caverns old messages, and you’ll get an Aknosom carving and a Rakna-Kadaki carving, both of which you can see in the screenshot above.
