Dimitris has recently hammered out so many new worldbuilding tools for you all! From RPG gamemaster notes for seeding, to a sleeker World Configuration page, check out details for each item below.


RPG Gamemaster Notes

A new field is now available to all game masters looking to organize what seeds they have told their players about! The contents of this is visible ONLY to you (the author of the article), from the editing page to the presentation. Consider this a ready made, no-setup secret for your article. These are also available under Map Markers as well. 

In addition, you can access a list of all the seeds you have given to your players from one page! The button for this list can be found in your Articles list page. The idea behind this is to allow you to have a single point containing all the things that you talked to your players about live, making it easier for you to connect the dots and create new exciting adventures that feel like they were always there!

 Also, don’t forget to check out Guy’s video on how to utilize this Seeding feature on World Anvil!

Full World Tree Article List View

In your Articles List page, you can view your world’s entire tree using the new view option Display Article List as a Full World Tree on the upper left hand corner of the list! This view also includes categories!


Worldbuilding Workflow

The new tree system now displays the children of the articlesand their children and their children all the way to the time of Richard the III.

Categories list displays an indicator if the category displaysas a book

The Category and Article trees page has a new interactive design! See rows of each item highlight as your cursor hovers over them.

The World Configuration page is cleaned up and organized into neat tabs. No more one long page of scrolling to find what you need!

User friendly tool-tips appear for all the BBcode shortcut buttons.

On-the-fly creation of articles is much smarter.  If you are selecting a location you will be able to select what time of location you want to create. If you are selecting previous next or parent article you can select which Template you want to use. [GUILD ONLY] (Because non-guild members cannot navigate drafts)

Go to your TODO list from everywhere, plain, simple, and accessible!

You can also create TODO items for your already existing articles.

Template Updates

The ‘Founding Date’ field was added to the Organizations template!

RPG Elements

You are no longer required to have an RPG system enabled in order to use the Generic Blocks functionality.

We hope these powerful worldbuilding tools bring your World Anvil experience to new heights! Do you see a feature or enhancement here you are interested or excited to use? Leave a comment and let us know!
