This week, we have an ongoing challenge for Adventure April, which has some of the best prizes we’ve ever given away! There are also changes to challenges coming, amazing one-shot resources, and upcoming events and community live streams and stages with worldbuilding advice stages.

Check out these Development Updates

Starting with the May challenge, we will change how we do challenges! Now, there will be two kinds of challenges: 1) participation challenges and 2) competitions.

Participation challenges will focus on the fun of worldbuilding and the joy of getting better. There won’t be any winners in a participation challenge. Instead, all who join will receive a participation badge given. If we give out any prizes, we will randomly raffled them off to participants.

Competitions means users will compete to be a winner in their league to receive prizes. Just like before, badges will be given to all participants and winners. However, each league will have a more complex selection process, no longer based on likes alone. Also, we’ll have a new league above premier – the champion’s league! This new league will feature winners from premier league competitions.

We (Janet & Dimitris, plus the World Anvil Team) want to bring you something useful, constructive, and helpful. A HUGE thank you to everyone who weighed in already! We really appreciate your feedback and patience as we make challenges and competitions as awesome as they can be.
