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 about to take place, and will goad people towards the party room with even greater urgency when it is in progress. In order for the NPCs to start shouting , players must add items worth at least 50,000 coins in Grand Exchange value to the party chest, or items worth at least 76,000 coins in a members' worlds. After the lever is pulled, they will shout variations of instead.
While one of the phrases said when a party is thrown refers to "big value items", this does not necessarily mean that the value of the party chest is concentrated in a few high-ticket items; any combination of items that together exceed the amounts stated above can trigger this announcement.
The party announcements only appear as overhead dialogue above the NPC's, not in the chatbox.
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.
- The player can see a cabbage when looking on the back of the cellphone in the museum display commemorating the release of Old School Runescape Mobile. This is a reference to Apple brand mobile devices, which have an apple logo on them.
