Galloper's Keep is an area only accessible during the Halloween Event. It is one of the few areas accessible by all players.
In the October 24, 2018 update, the Keep was added as a brand new area for Halloween activities. The Keep released new quests and races in a compact area, so players would not have to travel all around Jorvik to complete quests.
The Keep is a dark and spooky set of small islands floating in the sky with no apparent ground underneath, and is surrounded in perpetual fog and nightfall. The large main island connecting the two, smaller islands, appears as a broken down castle tower made of black stone bricks. Within the middle of this island is a large cauldron Galloper watches over that the player can use to turn Soul Shards into prizes. Northeast of the main island, lies a small stable where players can purchase a special Whinfell that is nearly identical to Galloper Thompson's Horse. Finally, the island southeast of the keep acts as the portal between Galloper's Keep and Jorvik.
The regular Halloween shops that pop-up in Jorvik can also be found in the keep next to the cauldron, however, these ones are run by ghosts. Players can purchase masks, magical powders, and previous halloween costumes from them.
Galloper Thompson can be found atop his horse, looking over the cauldron on the second floor of the keep. He does not interact with the player directly but does demonstrate the use of the cauldron before players may use it.
The Ghosts of Galloper's Keep are different from their Jorvik counterparts in that they appear as humanoid white transparent specters. These Ghosts died in a way that they cannot find rest as their soul shard still remains in the mortal realm of Jorvik. They will give players hints to the locations of their shards so that they may move on and no longer be tethered to Galloper's realm.
To access Galloper's Keep, players must have finished the quest where Justin Moorland gives you a brush, a hoof pick and a bucket. After that, green portals surrounded by a large stony arch and fog will be placed in practically every major area in Jorvik. Player's simply have to run into the portal to be transported to the keep.
- If a player jumps into the cauldron, they will be spit out and thrown to the upper level of the keep.
