The Palace Software Manuals

My introduction to the world of ThePalace was as a technical writer; I was contracted by the fledgling start-up in 1996 to write a series of user manuals, and eventually became one of the most prolific world-designers in PalaceSpace. Those manuals are still available and in use today:

ThePalace User Manual
ThePalace Server Guide
ThePalace Wizard’s Guide
ThePalace Iptscrae Language Reference
ThePalace Presents Moderator Manual

The Palace software is no longer supported by either or Intel (long story), but the Palace Community is still thriving. You can enter PalaceSpace by downloading a free copy of the Palace Client from The Palace Legacy Project.
