Features[edit | edit source]
Party chest[edit | edit source]
Players can donate items to the Party Chest, but cannot withdraw them again. 216 individual items can be put in, before the chest is full. Pulling the lever next to the chest for 1,000 coins will cause balloons to float down around the Hall. Popping these balloons may yield an item from the chest. This, and the bar upstairs, makes the Party Hall a popular place for drop parties.
Party Pete[edit | edit source]
The owner of the Party Room, Party Pete is a fun-loving character. He will dance, chat, and give you a book titled Party Pete's Bumper Book of Games. He will also remove 'cheap' items from the Party Chest.
Dancing knights[edit | edit source]
Pulling the lever near the Party Chest will give a player the option of summoning the dancing knights for 500 coins. The knights will dance on the tabletop, singing a song in homage to a similar scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The reference to the movie is further expanded upon in a dialogue with Party Pete, who says that the knights of Camelot got it into their heads that the Party Room knights were making fun of them.
Bar[edit | edit source]
The bar upstairs serves several kinds of ale.
Postie Pete[edit | edit source]
Postie Pete frequently visits the Party Hall. Players can converse with him one at a time.
Party announcement[edit | edit source]
The NPCs in Falador, such as the bank staff and the guards, react with excitement when a party is in progress. One of the phrases said refers to "high value items", but it is hard to tell if that is true. You must add 50,000 coins of value to the chest for a free-to-play world for the NPCs start shouting "Something is happening in the party room!" 76,000 of value is required for members' worlds.
The NPC chat only appears on the main screen, not in the chat box.
Museum[edit | edit source]
The Party Room contains a museum of past Old School RuneScape updates, accessible by climbing down the staircases. Each gallery contains displays of past updates, with the examine text stating their date of release.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The party room was built in response to the large popularity of "drop parties". Many players were complaining about how people would cheat by just telegrabbing the item and making it impossible for other players to get anything. When built, it was just an empty building in which Telekinetic Grab was disabled. When the game was updated to RS2, the building became quite a bit more structured, adding the chest, lever, and bar. The Telegrab still will not work inside the party room, however.
- The party room was originally located in Seers' Village; it was, however, moved to Falador during the King's Ransom quest update to make room for the Courthouse.
- From 4 August 2013 through 11 August 2013, the party room was occupied by many players in hopes of obtaining a Santa hat.
- The museum display with Tim, Crunchy, and Eski is a reference to the adventurers that were commonly seen on the Runescape website as well as the cover of RuneScape: The Official Handbook, an introductory book to RuneScape released by Tracey West in 2007.
- The player can see a cabbage when looking on the back of the cellphone in the display commemorating the release of Old School Runescape for mobile devices in the museum. This is a reference to Apple brand mobile devices, which typically have a picture of an apple on them.
