THE W3GUILD HOUSE, JOTUNHEIM
The W3Guild is one of the world’s leading professional communities of web3-focused game developers.
Its metaverse headquarters can be found within 5th Dimension on the island of Javaiya, in the heart of the downtown area of the city of Jotunheim, Javaiya’s unofficial capital.
The Guild is headed by specialists covering all aspects of game development to help onboard and provide continuous resources for success to gaming studios - everything from design and marketing to blockchain integration and token trading.
The Guild House is used by members of the Guild to host promotional and business events as well as live entertainment including concerts and side-events at the clubs. The building itself was kindly donated by Mars4, one of the Guild’s founding members, and the venue has been modeled as a homage to the Mars4 game world. Importantly, it’s been designed as a modular space that can be easily transformed and reconfigured to suit different types of live events. The venue has a wide array of live events features hard-wired into it including live motion capture, visual effects, high-quality audio-visual streaming and in-game voice chat.
Like many of the venues built inside 5th Dimension, the W3Guild House is designed to be a ‘hybrid’ events space by empowering performances in the real world to manifest in the metaverse, live in real-time. The video below provides a quick tour around the venue;
Events presented inside the W3Guild House are overseen by the 21 Founding members of the Guild and while the space is available for use by members of the public, anyone wishing to use the space to host an event must first join the guild as an honorary member and hold a W3Guild Location NFT.
More information on the W3Guild can be found at its official website:

TERMINAL 3, NEOTOKYO
NeoTokyo Terminal 3 is the main entry port through which travelers must pass when first arriving at the city of NeoTokyo. Terminal 3 is a melting pot of peoples and cultures from across 5th Dimension who arrive at the metropolis of Neotokyo seeking fame and fortune in its streets and subways.
To welcome new arrivals to NeoTokyo, the city provides free entertainment in the form of performances from some of NeoTokyo's hottest DJ talent, as if to send a message to new arrivals that life here in the capital of Utara exists on another plane, one quite unlike any other place in 5th Dimension.
Over time, Terminal 3 became a hotspot for savvy members of the Nuri and Savi Factions to recruit new members from the throngs of wide-eyed newcomers, always on the lookout for new and impressionable arrivals who can easily be sold and cajoled into membership of one faction or the other.
To accommodate the crowds, make-shift bars and food stalls have sprung up along on the margins of Terminal 3, creating a hospitable and often times unpredictable point of entry to the city of Neotokyo.
Since its launch over 2 years ago, NeoTokyo Terminal 3 has hosted a roll call of top-tier DJ talent. Just a few of the world-class artists to have performed at Terminal 3 include Umek, Neverdogs, Rich Dietz and Deysa (among many others).
Like all of the venues built inside 5th Dimension, Terminal 3 is designed to be a ‘hybrid’ events space by empowering performances in the real world to manifest in the metaverse, live in real-time. The video below profiles an avatar performance from techno pioneer Umek at Europe's leading music tech conference, Amsterdam Dance Event:

BLOCK PARTY (JAM STREET), STUDIO CITY
Jam Street is a small suburban cul de sac that has become a regular weekend destination for party people in 5th Dimension and is one of the best-known, after-hours rave venues in Studio City.
Generally referred to by the citizens of 5th Dimension by its unofficial name 'Block Party', Jam Street is situated about a 10-minute drive north of the center of Studio City on the island of Samsara.
Block Party was the second public Venue to be rendered on the VRJAM Platform and since it began life in 2021, it's hosted a long list of live events including performances from a diverse array of amazing music artists and DJ's.
The community in the neighborhood around Jam Street gets together every weekend to block off one end of the street to create a free, underground party space. The local community has become so committed to making this the city's best underground rave destination that it's become a popular after-hours performance space for touring DJs, many of whom turn up at Block Party after they've finished performing elsewhere in Studio City to chill and unwind.
Artists who've performed at Block Party over the years include a who's who of top-tier DJ Talent including house legend Junior Sanchez, UK deep house and breaks don Bushwacka techno goddess Anja Schneider and DJ Plasma (among many others). check out DJ Plasma's set from July 2021 at the link below:
