Characters and creatures, realms and factions, locations, items and more—great adventures require the proper ingredients! With YARPS you easily create, connect, and manage everything in your game world.

The world in which your stories take place is the heart of every immersive roleplaying game. To help you create this fantastic environment, YARPS provides a powerful narrative database that intelligently connects all elements of your worlds and stories and manages countless customizable attributes and relationships.

Locations, characters, factions, creatures, items, and more are woven together by YARPS into a smart network. This allows you to keep track of your world at all times and access an abundance of compilations and information. Thanks to YARPS’ entity system and linking features, you can easily populate your world with a multitude of NPCs, locations, items, lifeforms, and more. The more data you enter and link, the more powerful YARPS becomes as a tool for your games.

Plan your adventures and campaigns. Manage your game sessions. Chronicle how your world changes: YARPS can be at your side all the way when you bring your creations to life.

Aside from world building, the second important feature of YARPS is Story Planning or Campaign Management, respectively. Because what would your game world be without the stories that unfold in it?

YARPS evolves around you and your actions. In each session you play you alter the world you created, and YARPS will systematically reflect these changes and chronicle them for you. The goal is to take as much repetitive clicking and writing out of your GM schedule as possible to let you focus on world building, campaign management and storytelling.

When you build your story with YARPS you never lose track of your plans and can stay one step ahead of your players. Everything that happens in your game will be recorded automatically. Every adventure, every decision, and every change you make to your world can still be tracked afterwards.

Interactive maps, detailed character portraits, atmospheric background music, customizable calendars, and many other things - YARPS helps you immerse yourself in the worlds of your own creation.

Technically, all you need to play roleplaying games are a fantastic story and a group of friends to tell it with. Apart from these, however, there are many more things you can use to enhance your game experience. Music perfectly matched to your scenes provides a strong atmosphere for your game. With every step your heroes can explore the interactive maps deeper. Detailed character portraits lend a unique appearance to your NPCs. YARPS always has your back - during preparation, in your game sessions, or simply while you’re browsing your encyclopedia.

The YARPS Content Hub is the place where you can find or offer everything your role-playing heart desires - from an individual character or image to entire worlds and campaigns. All contents are created for and with YARPS and can be automatically integrated in your instance.

The YARPS Content Hub is not only another feature of the YARPS toolset, but can be rightfully called a main column aside from World Building and Story Management. It basically enables you to buy, sell and trade all entities or items imaginable online with full integration into your universe. Characters, places, factions, races, creatures, items, vehicles, events, adventures, entire campaigns and even music, pictures and maps - you'll find everything you've ever dreamed of and everything beyond your imagination, whether you only need a single element for your next adventure or you want to start a brand new campaign. And watch out: The Content Hub is not a one-way street! Aside from officially published RPG material, the Content Hub is open to homebrewed content as well. With only a few clicks directly in your Encyclopaedia, you can make your own content available to a wider audience. Your ideas will be able to appear in other players’ games - and you can earn real money.
