Soldier (Imperial Guard) chathead.png

Soldiers are members of the Burthorpe Imperial Guards. Some of the soldiers who were performing military drills in the main area of Burthorpe could not be attacked. They appeared to be wearing spiny helmets coloured black without the spikes. When talked to, they would say a random sentence in Latin. They have since been replaced by patrolling guards.

Location[edit | edit source]

  • Burthorpe training camp. They roamed around a large area including the tents and in the bar. They were in the same area as the starting points of the quests Death Plateau and Troll Stronghold.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The soldiers' line about a banana in his ear might be a reference to a Bert and Ernie cartoon, in which Ernie also has a banana in his ear. It may also be a reference to the popular video 'Charlie the Unicorn', in which the characters start singing a song about putting a banana in your ear
  • Burthorpe Soldiers used to wear dark brown tops for a small period of time, meaning that the top they wore was actually a Plague Jacket as their tops were updated along with the jacket and the rest of the whole Mourner gear.
  • Despite having claws, they use their fists to fight.
  • For some time in late November 2010 and early December 2010, a glitch caused the soldiers to have pink jackets.
  • One of the lines that the soldier says is "Eat my shorts!" This is a reference to The Simpsons where Bart Simpson says that.
