Invitations[edit | edit source]
Speak to Party Pete inside the Falador Party Room, and learn that he needs the player to invite some people to the party. He will give you an invitation list. Each NPC will need help with answering a question before they attend the party.

Finishing up[edit | edit source]
Speak to Party Pete, then a cutscene will ensue, where a mugger intrudes the party, planning to kill everyone. Party Pete then challenges him to a dance off. Because of the official mugger code, he cannot refuse it.

After the cutscene, speak to Party Pete once more to receive a 4th birthday hat and birthday balloons. If players did not obtain the birthday event items from previous years (a war ship, cow outfit, and gnome child hat), they will receive it along with this year's rewards.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The beginning of the dance off is a reference to the band Tenacious D's movie Beelzeboss where party pete and Jack Black, the lead singer both say 'Wait!' in a dramatic tone. Later, villain or demon in that case gets challenged to a rock off, and similarly to the mugger, the demon cannot refuse the challenge according to the code they cannot refuse a dance off/rock off challenge.
- The lutist attending the party is a reference to the character Kvothe in the novel The Name of the Wind, the first of three novels in The Kingkiller Chronicle series by American author Patrick Rothfuss.
- There is a dog present in the party, Gabe, who is a reference to the late , a minature American Eskimo and Pomeranian dog whose barks were remixed as the melody of certain popular songs.
- The skeleton Crunchy and warrior Tim attending the party are a reference to the two figures on the old posters and later High detail or Low detail quality of RuneScape screen.
- The smooth dance emote is based on the dance found in Canadian artist Drake's music video, Hotline Bling. The crazy dance emote is based on the dance found in South Korean artist PSY's music video, Gangnam Style.
