Problem
There are some clan chats out there, including the one I'm in, that like to support their own members by doing a drop party for them. By far, the most enjoyable way to do this is through the Falador Party Room as it is the most fair when you have mobile and PC users alike attending. However, more often than not, that party ends up being crashed; sometimes just by a few random folks that were in Falador at the time, and other times by entire other clan chats that were made simply to find and report drop parties.

Solution
Create a new room for Player Own Houses for a party room! This will allow the host player to invite only the people they want to be there, such as a clan chat or a group of friends, allowing for a private drop party among friends.

Features
Party Room: Creates a room similar to the Falador Party Room, just smaller. It will use the same dropping mechanics as the Falador Party Room. This room will be mostly empty space other than the Party Chest to maximize space for balloons. This should be able to be built within the 75-85 construction level range.
Party Chest: Creates a chest in the Party Room that allows players to place items in to be dropped when the lever is pulled.
Lever: Pulling the lever gives the player the option to pay 1000 coins to drop balloons onto the floor containing items that were in the Party Chest. This lever should be configurable by the host to be able to be pulled by either A: Home Owner, B: Specific person named by the Home Owner, or C: Anyone.

Accompanying Changes
Add an additional option for privacy of your home to limit house availability to anyone within the clan chat you are currently in. This will require a new interface for PoH privacy, giving the following options:
A: Open to Anyone
B: Friends Only
C: Clan Chat Only
D: Clan Chat and Friends Only
E: Locked to self only

Add an additional option for your butler to unnote items for players for a small fee, similar to the Bank Note Traders like Phials in Rimmington. Maybe place a restriction on this however to not allow construction materials (planks, marble, etc) to be unnoted in this fashion to keep NPCs like Phials relevant.

Add an additional mode for houses called Party Mode. In this mode, players may join a host player's house when opened by the host player. In this mode, the host player may not kick players from their house unless they hold a rank within the clan chat they are in that has kick abilities. This prevents players from being able to host a party for others, and then remove everyone once the chest is full, therefore scamming the party. This mode cannot be deactivated while items (valued at over 50k or so) are in the chest or in balloons on the floor. This mode may be deactivated 10 seconds after all balloons have been popped, allowing the host to then kick players from the house as desired. This prevails even if the house host logs out or leaves a clan chat.

Conclusion
Having a PoH Party Room allows for private drop parties for clans or groups of friends to enjoy amongst themselves, without the fear of being crashed by others. In addition, this may drive a new economy within PoHs, where players may offer their homes to host drops.

Alternative Solution
Allow for the Falador Party room to be instanced for a Clan Chat or a group of friends similar to boss areas. To enter the instance, the player must be in the host player clan chat or friends list and then talk to Party Pete to enter the instance. Players leave the instance by talking to Party Pete or clicking the door to exit. In the instance, the Party Room door should be locked, and Party Pete should be able to do bank note exchanges similar to other Bank Note Traders like Phials.

Thanks for the support! Nothing is stopping us from that. We do some giveaways on larger items doing just that, but when a host is trying to drop many smaller items so that everyone has a good potential for a little something, nothing else really compares to the proom.

It's kind of like... many smaller items, proom. A few bigger items, discord giveaway bot or trivia or something like that. A few of our cc members like to fill the chest completely at times lol.

Rolling numbers to win an item doesn't really have that "party" feel to it compared to when you're popping balloons in the party room you know? Also it's a way to get members of the clan together as an "event" type of thing.
