|A RuneScape Security Guard.|
The Security guard is a random event. If a player has their recovery questions set, the guard gives them a security book, another reward, and recommendation to come to the Stronghold of Security. He can also be found on the 1st floor[ of the ]Port Sarim Jail.
Possible rewards include:
- 20, 40, 80, 160, 320, or 640 coins
- Uncut gems (sapphires, emeralds, rubies, or diamonds)
- Half key (members only)
- Cosmic talisman (members only)
- Spinach roll
The guard can also be attacked and killed, but this is not recommended, despite his max hit of 2, he has high Defence and a total of 250 Hitpoints, and the damage done to him only gives you a quarter of an experience point per damage done. Also, he is immune to poison. If you take too long to kill him, he will eventually disappear.
If a player decides to fight him, he is weak to stab attacks and Magic. Rangers will have an easy time against him, too. This is not recommended, as you will only gain a quarter of an experience point each hit while fighting a Security Guard. Additionally, despite advertising the Stronghold of Security, he still comes when you actually are in the Stronghold. If you teleport away, he will say 'He/She got away!' before disappearing.
If the player already possess a security book in his inventory, the NPC would not provide another one.
