Baldur's Gate Wiki

Royal Sahuagin Guard are a sahuagin fighter unit located in the City of Caverns in Shadows of Amn campaign.

You are... the surface creatures. I have fought many of your kind on raids to the surface shores. The most exalted one has commanded your safety... for now.


These guards are located in various areas within the zones of the city that are under control of King Ixilthetocal.

The guards can reply to dialogue from the party if spoken to. There are three different varieties of these guards, with very minor equipment variations.

If for any reason that the party is in combat with the King's forces, the guard creature will behave as a crossbow and spear wielding fighting opponent.

The Sword Coast Stratagems mod makes some changes to the Royal Guard. It provides a tactical AI script for smarter combat behavior. The guard is assigned a level 12 Fighter class. The creature concentrates in spear combat, with grand mastery weapon proficiency and 2 pips in two-handed fighting style. Strength is boosted to 21, Dexterity to 18 and HP to 111. APR, THAC0 and damage are thus improved. Saving throws are changed.

The creature has a new undroppable +2 Spear weapon that applies a Poison effect on any hit. Save vs. Death to negate or take 2 damage/sec for 15 seconds. Various potions are scripted for quaffing. The Crossbow ammunition adds Paralytic Bolt and Bolt of Biting ammunition.
