Hey, everyone. Sorry I haven't been around in a long time. My computer ended up crashing and I was just recently able to buy a new one. How is everyone?

Has anyone here used, or knows about, this site?

I'm thinking of trying it, but am unsure of what, if any, paywalls the "free" account has.

i'll give it a try pal. been looking to host a battletech game for a long time anyways. Maybe if it isnt complete BS like R0ll20 i'll try to get a hold of the BPL (black pants legion) and host a game with tex or something. I'll keep this thread updated on my findings about worldofnvil

"We must insist that you refrain from comments which are racist, bigoted, or which otherwise offensively target a philosophy or religion. In addition we ask that our members avoid making offensive remarks based on gender or sexual preference and that you do not make any remark, comment or critique which is intended to be a direct insult to an individual, group, or genre of artwork. Hate propaganda is met with zero tolerance. Comments which are overly aggressive, personally insulting or needlessly abusive are also prohibited."

oh boy, this anvil site is already looking to be pushing a.... particular set of ideas in their "ettiquite" page.

Also wtf do they mean by "hate propaganda"? This seems dubious and very abusable should someone of a particular persuasion decide to make something up about someone in their game or at least pretends to be of that persuasion.

"While not strictly prohibited we must insist that all personal arguments, disagreements, and other volatile "personal" issues within be confined to private communications such as Notes, emails, or Instant Messaging programs. Likewise we discourage public accusations and other similar situations; please bring all issues of this nature to the attention of the staff by notifying the official World Anvil helpdesk."

in otherwords if someone accuses you of something using your real world info (a doxx) youre not allowed to warn others about it.

"As a vibrant and growing art community World Anvil welcomes all kinds of original artworks; but we MUST insist that the artwork which you submit be your own original works.

Your works must be your own original creations and you may only use resources which are considered legitimate and legal. Submissions which make use of works without proper permission or licensing by the original author will be removed as they come to the attention of the staff. This policy applies to all work submissions, Scrapbook entries, and the preview images used for written submissions.

If you have reason to believe that a World Anvil submission violates this policy you should use the official Report Violation link which is available on every submission page."

in otherwords an easily abused "copyright system" ala youtube style. So if i draw my own PC and someone reports it as theirs to use the law to steal it and my legal rights to it there isnt jack diddley dong i can do about it.

"When we discuss mature content we are specifically referring to works which contain images, subject matter, or other themes which some viewers may find offensive, distasteful, or otherwise undesirable to view or to read. The most common 'undesired' viewing material may include, but is not limited to, images containing artistic nudity (see details below), large amounts of simulated blood and gore, or generally violent themes.

World Anvil strictly prohibits the submission of materials classified as pornographic or obscene. There is no exception to this prohibition.

Certain content may be deemed obscene by the administration and as such the staff reserves the right to remove such content immediately upon discovery. The administration reserves the sole right to review and classify questionable material as obscene or not obscene."

in otherwords no making realistic worlds where horrible thngs happen or depicting the slaying of BBEG (Big Bad Evil Guy). Aon the other hand this means r*pe scenes are banned too. However this is also bad news for anyone that likes ERP.

    Your avatar should not contain nudity of any sort.
    You may not use avatars specifically created by other users without their explicit permission.
    If your avatar contains a portion of a work made by another artist it will be removed by staff at the request of the original artist.
    In all other respects your avatar must conform to the guidelines set above in regards to hate propaganda."

For starters there is that dubious term again. "hate propaganda" which has been poorly defined btw. Also people can steal your avatar too if they so much as are offended a little bit because of it.

Im going to delve deeper boys. i must see what features this site has now that i know they have rules just as bad a roll20

and sorry for the last post being so long but that was alot to unpack from just the ettiquite page of the world anvil thing

okay as soon as i create my battletech world (yes it includes SEVERAL different rpg settings, battletech included. lemme know if you want a full list guys) i get bombarded with a 20% off sale on subscriptions window. Thats a red flag...

oh my god. i tried writing a storysheet for my lances leopard class dropship and it wont let me if its not in their database. So they claim to have rpg systems but dont have them! hahaha!
Pal i reccomend not using this service thus far. But i shall continue this endeavor. This is becoming hilarious and its hard to contain my laughter. I may soon have to go outside to let it out as to not get evicted due to how funny this lack of functionality is

"You are using B out of your 102.4 MB storage space. The maximum file size is 1.0 MB for images and 2.8 MB For your maps. You are allowed to upload JPG, JPEG, PNG and GIF files. "

Bad news regarding file size and storage allowances. Theyre smaller than a krills tiny crustacean peen

okay the "explorer mode" is locked behind a paywall which lets you edit your WHOLE GAME from one page. This is an essential feature locked behind a paywall

Updated: March 26, 2020, 12:38:42 pm
the setting you choose cannot be changed or any info on it viewed once you make a game. this worldanvil looks like.... im gonna be frank its hot garbage and i havent even finished worldbuilding yet

Updated: March 26, 2020, 12:42:01 pm
okay i have reached a stopping point where i must conclude that worldanvil is a flatout no-go. UNLESS YOU PAY YOUR GAME IS PUBLIC PERIOD! In otherwords no keeping undesirables out of your game. (or whoever else you want to keep out) this is unacceptable.

Pal, dont use this service. I reccomend putting the work into improvising without one of these ttrpg online services as they all seem to suck
