Ebon Keep is a region in Gothica. It is the eastern keep of the two castles, the other being the western Ivor Tower. Compared to Ivor Tower, though, Ebon Keep is in a terrible state of disrepair.


The Hero and his Dog came to Ebon Keep on the request of Camellia Bluegarden to lower the drawbridge to the keep so her troops could storm it. At Ebon Keep Castle the hero met Tinker Tinderbox, who introduced him to the real Queen Bluegarden. The Queen explained the monarch at Ivor Tower was her evil twin, who had moved the kingdom to Ivor Tower after usurping the throne.

After the defeat of Mungola and the destruction of the false Queen, the people of Ivor Tower returned to Ebon Keep.




Note - the following items are in buildings inaccessible until Mungola is defeated.



Cecil sells equipment at the Inn. He does not sell normal items.

Shining Armor 900 Gold Coins
Knight's Helm 950 Gold Coins
Dragon's Claw 950 Gold Coins

In a back entrance to one home, an alchemist can be found. She teaches the player Regrowth and sells ingredients. Her prices and stock change after Mungola is defeated.

One house is owned by a man named Lance, as informed by the other inhabitants of the house. If the player goes upstairs and leaves without taking anything, Lance will greet them. He gives the player the alchemy formula Lance and will sell them ingredients. Once Lance has appeared, the player can loot the chests in the room freely; looting them before leaving will result in no appearance from Lance. If the player had previously met Lance in Ivor Tower, he will now be present in Ebon Keep. His stock is the same in either town.
