The Worldbuilder's Guild
The Worldbuilder's Guild is the name for those who pay for a World Anvil subscription to support its development and to have access to its many, many features. There are many ranks to the guild, to cover a vast array of use cases and needs.
For the distinguished worldbuilderJourneyman is the tier to get if you want to give your world a unique flair, host private content, or begin down the road towards monetizing. It's perfect for GMs who want a little extra atmosphere, authors craving a private lore archive, or anyone who wants collaborators.
Master the tier to get if you want a particularly sleek experience for readers and authors alike. Push updates to your discord server, chart a course with advanced mapping features, and customize the world editor to your specifications!
Grandmaster is the tier for TTRPG Devs, master GMs, and power users. With it, you may add RPG systems and create your own custom HTML + TWIG templates for sheets and blocks. It also adds custom styling containers and removes ads for viewers.
Sage is the tier for the pro with a plan. If your focus is on turning your world into something you can sell, or into a supplement for a product, you want to be a Sage.
Upper Guild—Limited Ranks
Ranks beyond this point can only be taken by talking to Dimitris or Janet directly through the WorldAnvil Discord or by emailing [email protected] There are a limited amount of open slots at any time due to the nature of their related features. These ranks are intended for World Anvil super fans who especially wish to support the ongoing project.
Inner Sanctum (Limited to 54 members)($25 USD/month)
For the World Anvil champion
This is the rank to take if you want direct input on the major upcoming feature sets of World Anvil. On the third Saturday of each month, in two sittings of one hour each, Dimitris and Janet host Inner Sanctum Coffee, a zoom video call where they discuss the upcoming features and use the feedback of the IS and above to shape these features to best benefit the use of those present.
Dimitris also more closely watches the Inner Sanctum Discord channel throughout the month, and so it is a great way to provide feedback on the site.
Legendary (Limited to 12 members)($50 USD/month)
For the accomplished Developer
Deity of Creation (Limited to 10 members)($100 USD/month)
At this rank, you're contributing out of an extreme love for the platform. The Deities always have the direct ear of Dimitris and Janet, and get priority on one minor feature request a month. They may also request a 1 hour meeting with them—to play games, to discuss World Anvil, or even for direct mentorship in monetizing their World Anvil content.
How do I join the Guild?To become an Epic Hero, go to your Hero's page and click the option to Become an Epic Hero down under your character's portrait. To become a Journeyman, Master, Grandmaster, or Sage, head over to the Pricing Page and check out the level you would like to purchase. For Inner Sanctum, Legendary, or Deity, contact the team at [email protected] with the subject line "Hello, I would like to upgrade to the upper guild!"
Additionally, features above your membership level stop working—for example inline secrets, map marker groups, and containers no longer appear. This is all restored by restoring membership.
This is to prevent exploitation of World Anvil's features.
If it was your world, and you lowered or dropped your subscription, it is likely that that world is outside of the list of worlds you may edit at a time. To modify this, you may change the operable worlds from your worlds list.
World Anvil will not provide refunds for any digital product subscriptions in any other case. In order to allow the user to test the product, World Anvil provides a free membership and monthly paid subscriptions.
