WorldsAway is now VZones
The VZones Dreamscape originally developed by Fujitsu has redefined what it means to be sociable on the Internet. Within a thriving community inhabiting a magical world called The Dreamscape, you can experience a virtual community like no other. Wheel and deal in the virtual economy until you can afford a place of your own. Game, gab, party in VZones, the Mardi Gras of avatars!

VZones is a vibrant virtual society with its own economy (you can earn virtual tokens, buy from vending machines and even rent your own apartment). Also while in VZones you can join group games including bingo, and engage plenty of other social antics. Avatar costuming is a favorite with people sporting wilder heads than seen at New Orleans Mardi Gras. Citizen organizations, such as the Duckolytes are always there to help and may even elect you to office. With plenty of props like confetti and balloons, martinis and exotic gifts, and much jumping and stomping, the avatars of VZones know how to party! You can even attend their real world gatherings, held at cities on regular intervals. So come and join the VZones community, and remember, don't get too excited and lose your head!

VZones Hot and Useful Sites
Fun areas in the Dreamscape
Visit Nu Yu for a complete makeover
The Nu Yu is a big area of vending machines where you can buy a whole new look. Select from a wide choice of bodies, heads, accessories, and sprays. You better have a good pocketful of change before going to Nu Yu, because makeovers can be expensive and they don't accept charge cards here! Meditation Park is an area I have been told about but have never visited. I will leave that one for you to discover.
