The Keeper of the Portal waits outside Candlekeep , at the top of the Way of the Lion. It is his responsibility to stop unwanted persons from entering Candlekeep.

He demands payment of a valuable tome or book to gain entry. This book is gained in Chapter Six from Duke Eltan in Baldur's Gate.

He takes no damage and is magic resistant.

If you return to him immediately after Gorion is killed, are nice to him and beg for assistance, you can get 100 GP from him for free.

Money for nothing and chicks for free.

–Mark Knopfler, Dire Straits


"Hold, travelers! Before you will be allowed entrance, you must donate a tome of great value to our libraries."

  • 1:-We don't have a book, but I used to live here.
I am sorry, friend. I know that you are the child of Gorion and have dwelt here all your life, but I cannot exempt anyone from the sanctions of the most high Ulraunt.
