Shantay is a non-player character who runs the Shantay Pass. He owns the Shantay Pass Shop, and sells Shantay passes. Shantay also provides some information about desert survival, as the effects of the desert heat starts taking its toll south of Shantay Pass, which can be useful for new players going into the desert.
If a player declares being an outlaw, Shantay will call upon his guards to have the player arrested and demands the player pay a fine of 5 coins. If the player pays, they will be released. If the player refuses twice, Shantay will then transport the player to be locked in Port Sarim "High-security" jail.
The player can escape by picking the lock of the cell, regardless of their Thieving Level or their membership status, but it is easier at higher levels. Picking the lock to get out awards 4 Thieving experience on members' worlds, while not providing any experience on free-to-play worlds. The player is also able to teleport out if they have the runes, or can use Lumbridge Home Teleport. There was a period of time this appeared to be impossible as Shantay only has an Examine option, but this has since been rectified through a hidden update.
