Originally devised by the Zhentarim, guardgoyles are a common sight guarding tombs, vaults, and stately manors. They are most often found in wealthy cities with large populations of arcane spellcasters for hire, such as Calimport, Silverymoon, and Waterdeep.

Loyal Protectors. Created to guard valuable items, these small constructs are fiercely protective of their charges and absolutely loyal. A guardgoyle is simple-minded, however, and can only be commanded to protect a specific item or locaion. It remains motionless until it is attacked or until it’s charge is disturbed in some way. A guardgoyle never strays more than 100 feet from its charge, even in pursuit of an intruder.
