I've noticed that a nice resource to get inspirations is Scabard. However it is apparently browsable only on a Campaign level, with all the Campaign's assets mixed up (characters+cities+random stuff).

Is there a way to browse only a specific category? (i.e. only the characters, or only the cities, for instance)

Even better if I could browse all characters, irrespective of their campaign, but even an in-campaign sorting would be good.


Go to the Query Category page on Scabard.

Returns pages across all campaigns that have that category, sorted by campaign score.

Example: Searching for 'City' pages:

  1. Pick "Place Category" on the selector
  2. Enter "City"
  3. Click "Search"

Searching for City

Full disclosure: I am the developer of Scabard and created this page in response to this question.

Update 3/21/21: Greatly sped up query and improved aesthetics.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Loharis - try scabard.com/campaign/121/category. It's paginated, so won't place a big burden on the server. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Loharis - I was wondering if you have a campaign of your own on Scabard or whether you just use it for inspiration. If you have a campaign, what is the name of it? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Currently I'm just using as a very vague inspiration: basically I look at a character, and I re-create a new character using a few aspects of that one as a source. I considered using it to build my campaign, but currently I opted for using a wiki instead – I don't rule out switching to it in future, though currently I'm a bit unaware of its pros and cons. \$\endgroup\$
