Although no one knows what Night Gaunts are, they have haunted the darkness of Spielburg Valley for as long as anyone can recall. No one has even survived an attack to report what they look like. As such, while in the valley it is wise to only sleep in safe places such as the town of Spielburg itself.
- "No one is certain just what these creatures look like since those who have met Night Gaunts are dead. Adventurers should be cautioned against sleeping in unprotected wilderness areas at night because the Night Gaunts'll get ya if ya don't watch out." (Excerpt from the QfG1 Manual)
Night Gaunts can be encountered (in the form of a death message) in Quest for Glory I: So You Want to be a Hero?
