Our drama in digital space is opening now, as we pull the good ship Avatar away from the WorldsChat Space Station and head out into the cosmos...the Chat Cosmos to be precise. We are entering what looks like a meteor cloud. Flying mountains whiz by us, and we notice that strange flat beings are moving around on their surfaces. There ahead of us is The Palace, the great centerpiece of this constellation of chat worlds. The Palace is a great stone edifice with glowing windows and a huge crowd of wafer-thin avatars dancing around its front gates.
Send out your space probes and explore the cosmos of worlds around The Palace. In The Palace, you can put on a whole virtual theater production with your own props, design and build your own avatars, construct your own Palace world, and above all, chat, chat, and chat.

The Palace: So You Want to be a Star in the Chat Cosmos?
Outside the Mansion is the gateway to The Palace.
The Palace is a vast constellation of tiny virtual worldlets spreading across the chat cosmos. In The Palace, you can design your own avatar (if you are a registered user), collect props, play group games, program fun behaviors with scripts, and even create your own Palace worldlet. Above all in The Palace, there is Chat, and lots of it. The Palace is jam-packed with people wanting to talk. Let us start your epic journey in search of the ultimate chat in the Mansion (as seen in the preceding figure), and then set off visiting some of the hundreds of Palace worlds.
