The Forge the Future survey closed a couple of weeks ago, and we couldn’t be more excited to have a close look at your answers! We really want World Anvil to be the best worldbuilding tool for you, so your feedback will make a huge difference in our future. Thank you to everyone who took the survey!

Quick stats sneak peek!

Forge the Future badge

If you answered the survey, you got this badge in your World Anvil profile!

Over 3,000 of you took the survey (enough to fill my hometown several times over), so we couldn’t be happier about the survey’s success. Here are some stats we got from the survey!

  • Over 80 % would recommend World Anvil to a friend (and about 20 % of you joined after a recommendation—it’s the power of friendship!)
  • About 52 % of you are GMs, and 45 % of you are writers. Really shows that World Anvil is for everyone!
  • For 70 % of you, World Anvil has helped solve your creative problems. Look at you smashing those brain goblins!
  • Half of you have managed to get your players to read your lore. Congrats! #GMgoals
  • Around 25 % of you use World Anvil every day. We’re happy to have you along for the ride!

What now?

Of course, these quick stats are just the tip of the iceberg, and with over 3,000 answers, the iceberg goes really deep! So, now that the results of the survey are in, it’s our turn to get to work! During the next months, we’ll analyze your answers, both looking at the numbers and your individual comments, to understand what you’re looking for. Because at the end of the day, World Anvil development is driven by you. Just look at all the updates we’ve already released this year—all of them because we heard you in last year’s survey! So, whenever you see new updates, remember that it’s all thanks to your invaluable feedback.

As for you… well, 53.4 % of you know the drill. Grab your hammer and GO WORLDBUILD!
