The Manor is a graphical chat, with an interface similar to The Palace but an updated 2D chat technology with ongoing development of the product. The Manor software is developed by MadWolf Software.
Many Manor regulars were once Palace users and they love the improvements to the Manor's client and server software, such the ability to make and wear props that are 132 X 132 pixels in full color, with up to 15 animated frames allowed. Since images can be used from any source imaginable, this allows for a wide variety of creative expression when creating an avatar.
The Manor is a great option for dial-up customers and Mac users, two increasingly underserved groups in the area of virtual worlds. If you visit, look for a friendly tiger avatar named "Scotsman" - he'll be glad to help you find your way around.
Here's an update from Scotsman sent to VWR in December 2004: "The StarHawk room at the main Manor is a first effort at a live action multiplayer video game with physics engine written in Python delivered as a room script. Also the gate at main is dynamically generated by PHP pulling the site of the month information from the same MySQL database used on the web page. This opens all kinds of possibilities for dynamic in world content."
