About the Rooms:

We highly encourage people to roleplay in the Roleplay room. You can start roleplay in the vore room, but please do consider moving them into the Roleplay room whenever we ask you. We know people enjoy the freedoms of the vore room, but you may be asked to move discussion or roleplay to one of the other rooms!

We prefer to keep the roleplaying public, but alternatively, you may use the Motel for Private Roleplaying, or you can roleplay in whispers.

Are you looking for a moderator? All Moderator names are in Italics on the user list to the right of the screen.

      • Setting: This is a place where worlds meet in the infinite abyss across all worlds.  Stars shine and sparkle, volcanoes erupt, a cool river flows past your feet as you stand on a marble colonnade leading towards a rocket launching pad.  Nothing ever seems quite still in the corner of your eyes, but when you focus your gaze the settings seem to coalesce.  This is a place where your imagination runs free.

About Our Rules

Yes, rules change. It happens, and it can happen anytime to better fit the atmosphere we desire. I don't know when the next time will be, but I will do my best to keep you guys updated.

When it comes to drama every place has it. I might be disappointed if I see it here, but I won't be surprised. We try to avoid it, but it will still happen from time to time. Just dust off and move on.

Our rules are enforced to the utmost of our ability, and we ask our members to respect our efforts and work with the administrators, developers, and moderators who make this site and this chat possible. But overall, we are here to have fun. Don't let the little things bog you down and keep you from doing what you want to do, which is play.

Common chat issue (Chat FAQ):

Q: My profile image is not updating after I upload a new one!

A: Try clear cache or use Ctrl-F5 to refresh the profile.

Q: How do I make a new character?

A: Exactly how you make the first one!

Q: How do I get a character from the old chat?

A: They are no longer accessible if you haven't migrated your character yet. Contact Eka directly for assistance if needed. 

Q: I keep getting logged out randomly / I cannot receive whisper!

A: It can be due to various reasons...

  • If you are on mobile device - This chat does not support those, but any standby, changing IP, etc., can cause your character to get logged off
  • If you have log off problem after getting a whisper, check your flash installation or firewall/anti-virus. Flashblock or ad block or improper installation of flash can cause a problem with whisper and causes log out. Try to disable those add-ons to help the investigation.
