The Principality of Burthorpe is a modestly sized militaristic city found due north of the druidic village of Taverley, and northwest of the Kingdom of Asgarnia's capital city, Falador.

Rising political tensions with the White Knights of Falador has led Crown Prince Anlaf to sequester Burthorpe and its sister village Taverley from the rest of Asgarnia as a direct result of Sir Amik Varze becoming the de facto political leader of the Kingdom following King Vallance's abrupt illness. As such, Anlaf has forbade any the kingdom is safeguarded by the Burthorpe Imperial Guard, Prince Anlaf's private military police force. According to Commander Denulth, if the ongoing war with the Troll Country is not soon resolved, the White Knights will discontinue funding for the Imperial Guard and dissolve them completely, thus annexing Burthorpe and bringing it back under Amik Varze's control.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Speaking to any member of the Imperial Guard except for major NPCs, (essentially any attackable Soldier), results in "jargon", which is actually a statement in the Latin language. A few of these statements and their English translations are given below:

  • "Te audire non possume. Musa sapientum fixa est in aure" - "I can't hear you. I have a banana stuck in my ear."
  • "Noli me covare, ego te vocabo" - "I don't want you to call me, I'll call you."
  • "Quantum materiae materietur marmota monax si marmota monax materiam possit materiari?" - "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?"
  • "Fac ut gaudeam" - "Make me happy."

A more extensive list of these Latin statements and their English translations can be found on the NPC page for the attackable soldiers.
