Re:  Amendment of Secured Promissory Note

Ladies and Gentlemen:

Reference is made to that certain Secured Note and Warrant Purchase Agreement
(the "Note Purchase Agreement"), dated September 6, 2000 by and between
eUniverse, Inc. (the "Company") and 550 Digital Media Ventures Inc. (f.k.a. New
Technology Holdings Inc.) ("550DMV"), pursuant to which the Company issued to
550DMV that certain Secured Promissory Note in the aggregate principal amount of
$3,155,670 (the "Original Note"). The Original Note, by its terms, could not be
called for repayment before March 6, 2001. In connection with an Amendment to
Subscriber Acquisition Agreement, dated February 14, 2001, among 550DMV, Indimi,
Inc., Emazing, Inc., and the Company, 550DMV exchanged the Original Note for an
amended promissory note (the "Amended Note") identical in all respects to the
Original Note, except that the Amended Note may not be called for repayment
before December 31, 2001.

Simultaneously with the execution of this letter agreement, the Company and
550DMV shall enter into agreements pursuant to which the Company will purchase
from 550DMV all of the membership interests in Indimi LLC (the "Indimi
Acquisition") and 550DMV will purchase from the Company (the "550DMV Placement")
$5,000,000 of the Company's Series B Preferred Stock, par value $.10 per share
(the "Series B Preferred Stock"). The Indimi Acquisition and the 550DMV
Placement shall be collectively referred to herein as the "Transactions". In
connection with the consummation of the Transactions, the Company and 550DMV
desire, among other things, to further extend the date upon which the Amended
Note may be called for repayment, enter into a $2,500,000 Senior Secured
Convertible Promissory Note (the "$2,500,000 Note") and to specifically provide
that the existing Security Agreement dated as of September 6, 2000
collateralizes the $2,500,000 Note. In consideration of certain promises
contained herein and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and
sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, 550DMV and the Company hereby agree
that simultaneously with the execution of this letter agreement, 550DMV will
exchange the Amended Note for an Amended and Restated Convertible Secured
Promissory Note (the "Extended Note") identical in all respects to the Amended
Note, except for the following:

         (a)      the Extended Note may not be called for repayment before March
                  31, 2003 (the "Extended Demand Date"); provided that,
                  repayment shall be accelerated upon a

                  Change of Control (as defined below) of the Company or upon an
                  Event of Default (as defined in the Note Purchase Agreement);

         (b)      the Company shall have the option, exercisable within 30 days
                  following the Extended Demand Date, to convert the outstanding
                  principal and interest of the Extended Note to shares of
                  Series B Preferred Stock, at the 20 day trailing average
                  closing price of the Company's common stock for the 20 day
                  trading period immediately prior to such conversion; provided
                  that, if the Company previously converted the Series B
                  Preferred Stock held by 550DMV into Common Stock in accordance
                  with its terms, then the outstanding principal and interest
                  shall then be converted into Common Stock, at the above
                  described price per share otherwise applicable to the Series B
                  Preferred Stock.

"Change of Control" means the occurrence of any of the following events:

         (i)      a sale of all or substantially all of the assets of the
                  Company in one transaction or a series of transactions;

         (ii)     the merger or consolidation of the Company with or into
                  another person under circumstances in which the holders of the
                  voting stock of the Company immediately prior to such merger
                  or consolidation, do not own a majority of the voting stock of
                  the Company or the surviving corporation immediately after
                  such merger or consolidation;

         (iii)    any "person" or "group" (as such terms are used in Sections
                  13(d) and 14(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
                  amended (the "Exchange Act")), after the date of the Extended
                  Note, becomes the "beneficial owner" (as defined in Rules
                  13-d-3 and 13d-5 under the Exchange Act), directly or
                  indirectly, of voting stock of the Company entitled to cast
                  more than 30% of the votes entitled to be cast by the holders
                  of the outstanding voting stock of the Company.

A copy of the Extended Note is attached hereto as Exhibit A.

The parties hereto confirm that the obligations owed by the Company to 550DMV
pursuant to the Extended Note and the $2,500,000 Note are of the nature and type
contemplated by the phrase "and each other obligation and liability, whether
direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, due or to become due, or now or
hereafter existing, of the Debtor to Secured Party, whether on account of
principal, interest, reimbursement obligations, fees, indemnities, costs,
expenses, (including, without limitation, all fees and disbursements of counsel
to Secured Party) or otherwise." To the extent necessary, the Security Agreement
is hereby amended to provide that the Collateral secures all obligations of the
Company to 550DMV whether arising under the Note Purchase Agreement, the
Extended Note, the $2,500,000 Note or otherwise.


This letter agreement shall be interpreted and construed in accordance with the
laws of New York , including, without limitation, Section 5-1401 of the New York
General Obligations Law (without regard to any conflicts of law provision that
would require the application of the law of any other jurisdiction). This letter
agreement shall not be modified or amended except by written instrument executed
by the parties hereto.
