Brutus (formerly called Atticus) is a guard that stands outside the entrance to Nilgarf In The Clearing. If you are under Level 7, Brutus will kick you away from the gate, setting the player to -999 HP.


Previously, another guard named Greg, the City Guard stood next to Brutus that gave the "A Respected Guard" quest. However, he got moved to the exit of the Mushroom Forest, then later the exit of Mushtown.

NPC Dialogue

1st Encounter

Hey.. you! You're not from here are you?

Under Level 7

You're a weakling! You don't have what it takes to make it in Nilgarf. [Sets the player's health to -999 and launches them, killing them and flinging them].

Level 7 or Over (1st Encounter)

Hmm.. You do look strong. Don't get cought up in any shenanigans while you're here, Nilgarf doesn't need anymore trouble. You may pass.

What do you want?


  • It is possible to get into Nilgarf without being Level 7 using these methods:
  • Brutus's name is likely a reference to Marcus Junius Brutus, one of the people involved in the stabbing of Julius Caesar.
  • Occasionally, a glitch will occur where players above level 7 still get punted.
