What awaits you through those shimmering doors (known as farcasters) as a registered user? I will take you on a brief tour to give you an idea.

Eve (Cyberhouse1, actually) is in the Garden of Eden.

First stop, the gorgeous Garden of Eden. This area features a labyrinth of separate gardens, each with its own theme. There is the flower garden, the Zen-style tranquillity garden, the breezy poplar grove, and the Koi pond, featuring a cat that meows.

The Rave Room in Asteroid 1541 has the loudest decor Iíve ever seen in the new cyberspace! Does that clash with your outfit, Cyberhouse1?
