    Introduction

    Owned rooms are world instances created and managed by users. Creating an owned room can be either free or paid, based on the pricing set by the world creator. The price can be adjusted by the world creator at any time.

    This feature is subscription-based and auto-renews monthly. You can cancel the subscription anytime via Settings > Room Subscription.
