Notable features They guard the borders of the starting area and the Al-Kharid toll gate.

The Border Guard is a non-attackable non-player character who charges the player 10 coins to cross the border between Al Kharid and Lumbridge. They wield steel halberds. They are the only free-to-play NPCs to hold halberds other than the fortress guards at the Black Knights' Fortress. They also appear between many other gates or walls (but do not charge for entry).

After completing Prince Ali Rescue they will let the player through their gate for free into Al Kharid.

Other Areas

On 17 September, 2009, two border guards of each were added to the Draynor, Falador and the Barbarian Village area. They let you pass for free, and you cannot communicate with them. Any players with a total level of 60 or under will receive a confirmation message on whether passing through this gate or not. Also, if your account is 3 days or older, you will no longer need to confirm the message.


  • In one of the Postbags from the Hedge, Postie Pete apparently discovered that the two Border Guards were stealing the money. When he further inquired about this, the Border Guards distracted him and were "replaced" with two other guards that look exactly the same.
  • Previously, if you talked to them in the now discontinued Learning the Ropes tutorial, they would talk about how the residents of Lumbridge are inconsiderate in keeping a dragon as a pet.
  • When RuneScape HD was released, the Al Kharid Border Guards received a new look, their old one being a combination of orange and purple.
  • Glitches have been discovered by players in Barbarian Village and Draynor, causing them to become stuck in a wall and stand between the guards, respectively.
  • The Al-Kharid guards will all turn and look at a player if the player goes near them.
