Design Interactive Maps

Maps are great, but you know what's really cool? Linking your worldbuilding directly to a map! Or even linking maps to other maps, going from your world map all the way down to the rooms of the dungeon your party is crawling.

The maps feature will inspire you during the worldbuilding process, allowing you to quickly create articles you can flesh out later. Then, your players can explore your world in an interactive way like never before!

Cross Reference

Worlds are interconnected, and the rigorous linking system in World Anvil helps you reflect that! You can

  • Link in articles you've already written
  • Create links for articles you've not yet created (these are added to the to do list!)
  • Create an article on the fly whilst writing another article and then link it in

You can capture all your ideas, and you'll never lose track of your flashes of inspiration again!

Put your history in order

Keep track of everything that's happened in your world with Timelines! Use parallel timelines to track events in your party's history or for a character. Separate your timelines into eras and use a variety of specialized timeline features to display your events the way you want.

Search & Find

When you're writing in flow or mid-game session, you need your information at your fingertips.

World Anvil allows you to search and find everything in your world quicker than ever!

Search your whole world by typing 3 letters in any search bar. Mark your articles with tags to find them even more easily!
