How to delete your world

Be careful: deleting a world is irreversible and will permanently delete everything contained in the world—once it’s done, there’s no way to get it back.


Follow these steps to delete your world and everything in it:

  1. Click the gear in the sidebar and then the double gears to access the world configuration page.
  2. On the right side, click on Open Tools & Advanced Options. Then, expand the Delete World panel, highlighted in red.
  3. You will see a list of other things you need to delete first, such as campaigns and characters tied to the world. This is to make sure you don't delete any other content accidentally.
  4. Click the Delete this World button.
  5. Your browser will prompt you to confirm. If you're sure, click OK—if you change your mind, you can still click Cancel.

After clicking OK, your world will be permanently deleted.
