Introduction to Heroes
Heroes is the campaign manager and social media network for your characters in World Anvil. This guide is a quick explanation of the layout of Heroes to get you started! For more information on a specific Heroes feature, take a look at its specific guide.
- Sidebar menu (highlighted in red): this contains links to the different parts of Heroes: your Dashboard, your Characters, your Campaigns and your RPG Sheets. Clicking on the Heroes logo will always take you to the Dashboard, and you can click on the "World Anvil" link to go back to your World Anvil Dashboard. If you have currently selected a campaign or character (see below) it will appear below the logo. In the example screenshot, the campaign "Tests and Dragons" is selected. You can toggle the sidebar with the hamburger menu (highlighted in green).
- Profile picture and notifications (highlighted in cyan): clicking on your profile picture, on the top right corner of the screen, will toggle a drop-down menu to different parts of your account configuration. The mail icon will open a drop-down with your latest notifications and a link to the Message Center, which allows you to send private messages to other characters (you can start a new conversation with the Message button in the character's profile page).
- Followed characters stream (highlighted in yellow): when you follow a character (see the Guide to character interaction), all of their posts will automatically appear in this stream.
- New Heroes (highlighted in purple): this is a list of the latest characters that have been created in Heroes. Clicking on their names will take you to their profile.
