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.


Epic Hero


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 56 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 16 members)($50 USD/month)

For the accomplished Developer

This rank grants access to the Javascript Development pane. You may upload Javascript to each of your Codices (after the team has reviewed and approved it) and to RPG Systems you have made within WA. That Javascript executes for all visitors to your codex or on worlds which use your RPG System.

Deity of Creation (Limited to 12 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.

  • Can I upgrade at any time? Yes! Any amount you have paid is prorated into an upgrade, meaning that what you've already paid goes towards what you will pay.
    Does membership prorate when I upgrade? See above!
    What happens if I drop membership? If you drop membership, none of your content is deleted or held hostage from you, but any content beyond your top two worlds and the first 175 articles of those words is locked against editing.

    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.
    Why can't I access my world? If you were a co-author on that world, it is possible that the world owner removed you or lowered their subscription level beyond being able to support you.

    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.
    Do my co-authors need a membership as well? They do not! Many of World Anvil's features are tied to a World's owner, meaning that if they own the world then all their co-authors can use their guild features on that world.
    Can I get a refund? From the ToS: World Anvil is obliged by law and in accordance to the Consumer Rights Act to provide refunds for purchases if said purchase has been done illegally, and if this is within the first 14 days of the purchase.

    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.
    How do I gift a membership? You can find the Shop on the bottom of the left sidebar of the editor at any time. Aside from buying world anvil merch there, you can also pick up gift subs!
    Is there a lifetime version? Lifetime memberships were available for a limited time (an optional purchase) as part of the Project Deios Backerkit in partnership with DungeonFog. They are not currently available for normal purchase.
    Is there a student discount? There sure is! Check here!
    Can my friend/group (etc) share my account? This would be a breach of ToS. Please consider a membership level which will allow you to add them as a co-author—even Journeyman has the functionality.
