Dr Randulf Harlow is a retired vampyre slayer in the Blue Moon Inn in Varrock. If a player has started Vampyre Slayer, they must buy him a beer in order to convince him to teach them how to kill Count Draynor. Dr Harlow will then give players a stake. After completing the quest, Dr Harlow will go back to what he was saying before ("Buy me a beer pleash").

During the 2021 Halloween event, he and other bar attendants respond with fear to the arrival of Death in a cutscene.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • He could also be based on psychologist Harry Harlow, who was known to be an alcoholic.
  • At the mention of "How to kill a vampyre", Dr. Harlow resumes a normal, sober state. His speech isn't slurred, and it seems the only thing that could snap him out of his inebriated state.
  • In the early days of RuneScape 2, Dr. Harlow was found in the Jolly Boar Inn, however he was moved to the Blue Moon Inn because newer players had a hard time finding the bar and would often wander into the nearby Wilderness.
