Coins are a guild-only feature. To gain Coins, Join the Worldbuilder's Guild!
What are Anvil Coins?
Coins exist to reward you for engaging with the platform and community, not to gate you from accessing features.
You may spend them to create feature requests, and to vote on requests others have made. In the future, you will also be able to spend these Coins to nominate an article to be featured on the front page.
Guild Members can build their shiny draconic hoard by logging in each day.
Upcoming features, including Duels, and Quests, add routes to earn coins. Quests have been described as a writing prompt system. Duels have been described as quest sprints judged by word count.
Q: Can I purchase more Coins?
No. World Anvil Coins are not, and will never be, a microtransaction feature. This also includes the intentional absence of user-to-user coin-exchanges.
Coins can be used for suggesting features for World Anvil and voting on suggestions of features for the site.
More uses will be released over time.
Suggesting a Feature
On the help page, you can find the "I have a feature request" button. Click the button and you'll be taken to Voting Page with another button for "I have a feature suggestion."
It costs 300 Anvil Coins to make a feature suggestion. The price is to ensure that the suggestion has been seriously considered by the submitter.
Features with point scores above 10,000 will be taken under consideration as a feature for the site.
Voting on a Suggestion
To vote on suggested features, you follow many of the same steps as going to suggest a feature, but instead of submitting a suggestion, you may choose to vote on the suggested features you see.
Coins are spent according to how enthusiastic you are in favor for or against the suggestion. You may spend 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, or 300 to vote or downvote a feature by as many points. If you have entered text in the voting box, that will be shown next to your vote.
Note - The World Anvil Team has the final say, regardless of a suggestion's popularity. Reasons for a suggestion to be rejected may range from "Doesn't match our vision of where World Anvil is developing" to a lack of resources or man power, or a technical limitation.
Anvil Coins are common and can be earned a variety of ways: Logging in, Duels, and Quests.
Nonpurchaseable - but is earnable
Engagement and worldbuilding.
Upcoming Feature! Realms
Despite efforts from Discord members, the World Anvil Team has been keeping all possible leaks for sweet sweet hints, teasers, or previews of Realms a secret. Whatever it is, Realms are something one uses coins for.
It's a surprise!
Upcoming Feature! - A way for users to suggest articles to be featured on the World Anvil Community page using coins to do so.
