🗺️ New maps

We’ve updated maps to make adding markers of all sorts easier!

  • You no longer need to refresh when adding a new marker
  • Lines, polygons, and circles are now added visually (no more figuring out coordinate points!)
  • Overall UI improvements

For more information about maps, check the feature guide.

There were other minor changes too, check out the Changelog page on World Anvil for details!

🗓️ Worldbuilding Awards & unofficial challenge month

  • 🏆 Worldbuilding Awards: submit your worldbuilding for a chance to be voted as one of the best worldbuilders of the year! The submission period is from March 4th to March 17th—check the event page for details.

🌟 Community highlight

Looking for an amazing example using the new timelines? Look no further than this month’s feature—Valonia: Kingdom at the River’s End, a timeline by Adcheryl! It uses the new timeline features to their full potential by using a map as a background that changes as you scroll down the eras. It’s an amazing example of what can be done with timelines, so check it out and leave a comment!
