The Brainhouse Labs website seems to be down. I don't know how long it will remain down for, or whether it's been taken down indefinately. But here is the software so you can use it to surf the Palace. It's a fantastic little programme so I'm going to try to make sure it stays in distribution somehow.

Share and enjoy, compadres!

HUGE NEW DEVELOPMENT: Server Time Bought! [17 Apr 2008|05:30pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

Hey dudes!

I've finally taken the big dive and bought server-time with elite-palaces.com!! It's cost me 108 bucks, so I'm taking donations if anyone's willing to give it:

Please, don't donate less than five dollars. It'll get eaten up by fees that way! I'm researching bar scripts that'll show the progress for you guys, I'll get that up as SOON as possible!

We need a MOD SQUAD! [08 Jan 2007|10:42pm]

[ mood | busy ]

Xena Palace needs moderators and I don't just want one or two. I want a bunch of 'em, so no-one has to work too hard. And I want a broad spectrum so that everyone is represented. Think you got what it takes?

- Do you like talking to people?
- Have you tact and diplomacy?
- Do you have spare time on weekends (and possibly during the week if this chat takes off, but not likely)?
- Do you have any experience in chatting environments, like IRC or similar? (Not vital, as I can train you).

I'm looking for the following in the mod spectrum:

- Two Ares/Xena fans
- Two Xena/Gabrielle fans
- Two 'Misc' Fans (Either Bitexters, Fence-sitters, Gen fans, etc).

I'm looking for six mods, but if I get more or less, I don't mind. What I really want is people that aren't going to let fandom beliefs get in the way of fair play on Xena Palace.

If you're interested, fill out the following form and send it to nlgroovegirl(a)gmail.com or paste a reply here in this post.


Handle on XOC/TX (not essential):
Fandom Pairing (if any):
Experience (mod, chat or otherwise):

W00t! Room news! [20 Dec 2006|09:27am]

[ mood | busy ]

Hey all!

Thought I'd throw out there that I contacted one of the co-creators of the fantastic multi-media games "Wrath of the Gods" and he's letting me use screen-shots for some rooms! This is super GREAT news as some of the scenery in that game is just perfect.

I'm going the extra step and making sure that when I get an official website up for the Palace, I'll put a banner in leading to mythweb, the current retailers of Wrath of the Gods. Cause I love the game to bits and think everyone should have the fun of being a combination of all the most fun Greek heroes. Seriously. You fight the chimaera, Medusa, fly on Pegasus, face off the minotaur, leap over bulls and inherit a kingdom (if you're clever). And you can consult a snarky Oracle of Delphi. Too cool, huh?!

Betsy Book has also let me use the original graphics of the old Palace chat. I don't know which I'll be using as I'm keen to have a light, fun and airy feel to this palace and the old one had some rather gloomy rooms, but it's a huge help to me. Thank you, Betsy. You're always a help!

I hope you all have a great holiday season! Happy Solstice, folks!

What IS Phalanx/Palace Chat? [12 Dec 2006|06:38am]

[ mood | busy ]

It's been a year or so since the Xena Palace was up, and much longerthan that since the palace software was first released. 1997, I think was the year.

Yet it still endures, even though there are chat environments like IMVU floating around. Why? Probably because of its simplicity, its cheapness and the ease of customisation. With very little graphic savvy, you can have any avatar you want!

The interface...Collapse )
You go in and out of different rooms. If you see the funny white lines in the corner of the older pictures - those are the doors. You click on those to go to different rooms. Sometimes doors can be hidden, or they can be visible when you click on 'visible door' mode. Like any other chat like IRC or java chats with rooms, there will be mods to oversee things (bquared did that for us back in the Joxer Nights days, that's what the pictures are of above).

Rules For the Palace Chat [10 Dec 2006|06:34pm]

[ mood | quixotic ]

Hey girls and guys!

Here's a rough draft of the rules (Charter?) of Xena Phalanx Chat!

Rules of Xena: Phalanx Chat

1. No debates! This is a debate-free zone! If you want to debate, go to the Debate Forum specified in the Rooms List. The rest of the Palace is a safe-zone. So if someone is there and they say something about the show you disagree with, you mustn't fight with them about it. Expressing, politely and with respect, your alternate view is fine. That is where it ends. I expect adult behaviour in the Palace.

2. No Ship Dominance. No relationship on the show is more important than the other within the confines of Phalanx Chat. It is a *general* chat area. If you want to spaz out about your favourite couple (whoever they are), you can go to one of the specially designated rooms. The only exception to this is if a representative of said ship organizes a special event to celebrate said ship (eg. Subtexter Night, AX Shippers Night, GJ Night, etc).

3. Small icons in crowded rooms. When there are more than ten people in the room, please use an icon of two-by-two prop squares. Keep it small so we can all fit in comfortably.

4. Keep language reasonably clean. Swearing is not a problem, but let's keep it pretty clean, okay guys? I don't want vulgar discussions or behaviour.

5. No X-rated or explicit props. Keep them clean, thanks!

6. No Comic Spoilers! There's a new comic coming out. No spoilers in regards to said comic! If you must talk about the comic, take it to the Comic Spoiler Room! :D

7. Respect for All. This needn't be said but I'll say it anyway. Please show respect to ALL your fellow Xena fans. We all love the show, sometimes in ways different from other people. If I hear of any bullying or cruel treatment, there *will* be consequences.

8. Bannination. The breaking of any of these rules will result in a banning of 30 minutes. If a user is caught breaking the rules more than three times, they will be banned for a week. Moderators will discuss the problem with the offender to make sure that the issue is dealt with in a fair and personable manner. We're not robots and neither are you - we like to figure these things out.

Assurance of Fairness.

The Wizard Team consists of representatives of different areas of fandom. Everyone is represented and so if any big decisions need to be made, as many views of the fandom will be considered.


If you have anything to add or to contest, please feel free to comment to this post.

Welcome to the Xena_Palace Community! [10 Dec 2006|06:27pm]

[ mood | optimistic ]

The old Xena Warrior Palace was a great source of fun and a bright spot of unification in the Xenaverse. With the new comics coming out and new fans popping up all the time, I thought it was time to bring back the Palace and hopefully, bring Xena fans together.

Aims of the Xena Phalanx/PalaceChat Palace:

- To provide a friendly, warm environment where all fans can come together and talk about their favourite show.
- To provide a space for other organised parties (websites, fanclubs, etc) to hold online social events.
- To hopefully create a mixing pot where different fandom factions can get to know each other.

I'll be posting a draft list of rules and you'll be more than welcome to comment and make your suggestions. I'll also be finalising the Rooms list, that is, places you can explore in the Palace environment. I'll also be updating you on the progress of new rooms as I make them.

Until then, Battle On!
