|Eternal guardian @|
|Видит в темноте?||Yes|
The eternal guardian is a unique NPC in ADOM. He is found blocking the down staircase on level 29 of the Caverns of Chaos. If the PC 'C'hats to him whilst wearing the Ring of the High Kings, he will disappear and allow the PC to pass.
Without the RotHK, the only apparent way of getting past the eternal guardian is for the PC to force their way; though the PC should be extremely careful attempting this, for two reasons. Firstly, the eternal guardian is incredibly tough -- with at least two or three times as many hit points as most other bosses in the game -- and can easily kill the PC with his penetrating attacks before they come anywhere close to killing him. Also, if the eternal guardian moves from the staircase he will create a clone of himself on the staircase -- making the PC's situation twice as bad. The clone standing on the stairs will be non-hostile, but will not accept the RotHK until all clones are defeated. Killing eternal guardians, especially in melee, is an extremely chaotic act. If the PC is strong enough to survive against the eternal guardian, they shouldn't have too much difficulty getting the Ring of the High Kings anyway (short of a desperate lack of ice/wooden bride building means or a climbing set). Note that it is not necessary to kill the eternal guardian in order to pass without the RotHK. When the eternal guardian steps off of the stairs to engage the PC, it is possible to immediately teleport and descend before the clone has had the chance to be generated. Bypassing the eternal guardian through this manner will not allow the PC to use the CoC surface shortcut to return to the lower CoC.
Fast enough PC wearing seven league boots may exploit EG's ability to double himself for gaining experience. Not so easy but it may worth it, especially for Troll characters. Note that eternal guardians may be sacrificed at non-lawful altars if one happens to be generated on the level (though due to the chaotic nature of killing EG's, sacrificing them at a neutral altar is not recommended).
According to the Mad Minstrel, the eternal guardian is the brother of the last High King whom ages ago fought to free the world from Chaos. The forces of Balance took the guardian's former life away, and made him guard the staircase the PC finds him on until the Chosen One arrives wearing his brother's ring.

Игровое описание (Monster memory)[править | править исходный текст]
Heavily armored, and barrel-chested, this man is HUGE! He stands much taller than you, and is far broader, the folds of his armor hinting at the power beneath. Few of his features are visible beneath his visor, but you can feel cold, hard eyes sizing you up where you stand.
