Burthorpe, with Buthorpe Castle seen just north of the city's name

Burthorpe Castle is the official residence of Crown Prince Anlaf of the Kingdom of Asgarnia, although Anlaf has been absent from the castle for some time. The castle is in the north-central part of Burthorpe and is featured in the Death Plateau quest, and its lower levels contain the Burthorpe Games Room.

The castle's main use to many players is as gateway to Burthorpe, since the Games necklace teleports to the Games Room. The castle is otherwise little used, as the Games Room is not popular. Some players occasionally train on the level 37 Guards and level 42 Archers that guard the keep. Infrequently, a Treasure Trails clue will require the player to meet Uri in the Games Room.

Ground floor

1 - Main hall of the keep. The puzzle for the Death Plateau quest is on the west of the hall. Stairs go up to the throne room on the first floor and down to the lower level of the Games Room.

2 - Kitchen. Although the castle's cook will say she is making the servants' meal, no Range can be found in the kitchen, only a Sink. A ladder provides access to the south-west battlement.

3 - Equipment storage room. This room is locked before and during the Death Plateau quest, until the puzzle is solved. Thereafter it is unlocked. A ladder provides access to the north-west battlement.

4 - Bedroom, with a single large bed. A ladder provides access to the north-east battlement.

5 - Bedroom, with three small beds. A ladder provides access to the south-east battlement.

S - Level 4 Servant. The default (left click) interaction with this servant is to attack him. Right click to speak to him.

E - Level 5 Eadburg, the cook.

First floor

1 - Throne room. Stairs go down to the main hall on the ground floor. The battlements on the this level are not accessible from this floor.

A - Level 42 Archer.

E - Eohric the Head Servant. Eohric will offer the player a quest if asked, but it turns out to be cleaning the castle's cesspit, which the player automatically refuses.

Games Room lower level

1 - Stairs to the ground floor of the castle.

2 - Stairs to the upper level of the Games Room.

3 - Locked doors, which prevent access to rooms labelled 9 and 10.

4 - Entrance hall to the Games Room. Two noticeboards are on the walls, with 'news' that if the Games Room proves popular, the two empty rooms will be used for Slime Wars and Chess. (Some other rooms also have noticeboards, but these cannot be read.)

5 - Lower challenge room for Draughts. The ladder here can only be climbed by players with a Draughts rank of at least 1,500.

6 - Lower challenge room for Runesquares. The ladder here can only be climbed by players with a Runesquares rank of at least 1,500.

10 - Storage rooms. Shelves, crates, and barrels can be seen in these rooms.

11 - Lower Games Room with playing boards.

R - Rachael.

Trivia

  • Some players speculate that the northern bedroom, with the single large bed, is for Crown Prince Anlaf, and the southern bedroom, with three small beds, are for the castle's three servants. If so, then presumably the wall in the southern bedroom separates the female servants bed from those of the two male servants.
  • Players training Ranged can climb up to the southern battlements and use them as safespots to attack the guards in front of the castle's entrance.
