    I think rather than free to use, having it as part of the subscription would be great.

    Pretty sure this is on the horizon. I remember having seen it on their project board thing, as a future planned update.

    A wiki-like format would indeed be the most convenient (cfr. fandom wiki of forgotten realms).

    But it needs to be flexible enough not only to have in-wiki references, but also references to magical items, homebrew stuff, NPC character sheets, encounters, ....

     

     

    I was considering creating a fandom wiki for my own campaign world, but then my players would be able to "look ahead" in places, lore and locations. so I rather keep it DM-private for now :D

    World Anvil is basically this with extra bonus features. If you find it confusing, join their help discord (link in the footer) and poke me (charonjfox).

    World Anvil: Yes and no. It *can* be a good resource for giving info to your players, but to most of the good features cost money, and even with my paid subscription, I don't have the ability to let my players add content easily. Having a DnDBeyond tool for this purpose, streamlined & built for campaigns, DMs, and players (rather than an overall worldbuilding tool that often seems more geared toward authors) would be really good.

    Add your players as writers if you want them to be able to add complex information. And via the Heroes interface, they can freely add things for their characters. I guess I just prefer to keep each tool to what it's good at.
