Palace is an exciting,
visually oriented chat experience, an online community of people who
come together to interact in rich graphical environments while wearing
avatars personalized to represent themselves.
In comparison to regular
chat, Palace visitors express themselves using sounds, space and movement
as well as text.
With over a thousand Palaces
open to the public at any given time, built by people from all corners
of the world, there really is SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. And it's all free!
This section of Studio Dust's
web site will introduce you to the basics of using The Palace Viewer,

avatars, a few basic guidelines and more.
