Quest guardians are peaceful humans generated on the Home level of the Quest. They possess some distinct characteristics based on the quest they serve as guardian for (e.g. chieftains have poison resistance like barbarians). When #chatted to, they will give various quest-appropriate responses, which are listed on the appropriate role's Quest page. The quest guardians are:

Role Guardians
Archeologist @ student
Barbarian @ chieftain
Caveman @ neanderthal
Healer @ attendant
Knight @ page
Monk @ abbot
Priest @ acolyte
Ranger @ hunter
Rogue @ thug
Samurai @ roshi
Tourist @ guide
Valkyrie @ warrior
Wizard @ apprentice


That was probably a bad idea...
You killed a quest guardian and incurred a MAX/8 alignment record penalty, where MAX is your maximum alignment.[1]
As above, while hallucinating.


The quest guardians for the new roles in SLASH'EM are:

Role Guardians
Flame Mage @ igniter
Ice Mage @ froster
Necromancer @ embalmer
Undead Slayer @ exterminator
Yeoman @ Yeoman Warder
