Develop your game wiki with a team!

If you’re creating a video game, an expansive RPG world, or even co-writing a novel with others, World Anvil is the ideal tool. You’ll be able to develop and keep track of everything you need, and also share it internationally, so everyone who needs to can reference it! If you have part-time collaborators, you can give access and then revoke it later too! And later, when you’re ready to launch, share parts of your game wiki with your players, or your series bible with your readers, so they can get excited about your worldbuilding and help you build a community!

Integrate your world wiki and RPG Campaigns

As a Dungeon Master or Game Master, you’ll know how important it is to keep notes and track your world as your players rampage through your RPG campaign! Our Digital DM’s Screen keeps everything at your fingertips during a session! You can pull up homebrewed statblocks from your world or your system, create NPCs in seconds which become permanent additions to your campaign world, and check on your PCs sheets too. Even better, all your notes become integrated with our session reports, so you’ll be able to remember exactly what happened for next time! The perfect way to keep your campaign safe and organized!

Integrate your world wiki and novels

If you’re an author, you’ll know how important your world bible or series bible is! Our unique novel writing software works in partnership with your worldbuilding wiki, letting you link in characters, items and more. Even more, when you create a wiki on World Anvil, you can search and edit your world from the writing interface! This is perfect for quickly referencing details about a character or location, or adding new details, without losing your writing flow!

Share your wiki with friends and patrons

Want to make your own wiki private, so only you can see it, or share your worldbuilding wiki with the world? World Anvil’s advanced privacy settings allow you to do both, and give exclusive access to those you want to share more with! This is great for monetising your worldbuilding, allowing you to share exclusive content with customers and Patrons. It’s also perfect for managing beta reader waves or running a DnD Campaign! With our co-author features, you can even create your own wiki with a friend or a team, inviting collaboration to create the world of your dreams!
