Welcome to Arcana.io

Hello adventurers

I am happy your adventures have brought you to this corner of the internet. Hopefully you will find Arcana.io to be a useful resource during your game nights and campaign planning. I initially started building these tools as a way to make my own campaign planning easier but I quickly realized this was a great way to give back to a community that has given so much to me. If you find any of the tools or resources to be insufficient or inaccurate, I would love to hear from you in the form of comments or at feedback@arcana.io. I want to add features that you will love and not just a tool for myself so your feedback is important to the success of this website.

What are your motivations?

I am a relative newcomer to the world of pen and paper RPGs. One thing I quickly learned when entering the hobby was that it is a very creative and giving community. It's not hard to find amazing, high quality content and ideas scattered all over the internet. I wanted to create something to help fuel those ideas and keep them coming. I also wanted to provide a place for others to quickly find that content so when they need a specific monster or NPC during a game, they arent left flipping through endless notes.

I want to thank all of the creators and players who put their content out there for the rest of us. It is inspiring and keeps our dice rolling week to week. Without your creations, my players would be fighting wave after wave of goblins. And while that sounds perfectly fine to me, I am sure they wouldn’t find it quite as amusing.
