    This icon indicates content from all original Baldur's Gate games, extensions included.
    In the original games, Amnish soldiers are handled as being innocents. Only the Enhanced Editions introduce a specific class for them.
  • The creature file HICK.cre is assigned "Flaming Fist" as its class in EE.
  • The soldiers patroling in Nashkel along with those found inside the Garrison (AMNIS.cre) and the one that appears when trying to sleep (AMSLEEP.cre) are given an alignment of Lawful Neutral and the rest are all Lawful Good.
  • The soldier that awakens the party if caught sleeping and the one who approaches the party when they first enter the Garrison in Nashkel (HICK.cre) both have 65 HP instead of 15.
