Campaign Copy


Is there a way to copy a campaign? I would like to start a second one but would be using a lot of the same non player characters as well as wiki entries. Im still using the first so i can't just use that one.

    The only way I know of right now is to copy and paste. I've been playing with a GM only hidden campaign that I use as a notebook for content and crib from that. Clunky, but it works.

    Yeah, I'm dealing with the same challenge myself. I'm prepping a new campaign that could (hopefully) turn into something much bigger, and I realized it'd make more sense to put the core stuff (setting, rules, etc.) in a separate campaign "hub" that could be referenced from other satellite campaigns. If this works, of course.

    I'm copy/pasting each page into Notepad to quickly make the few syntax changes between campaigns, and it's actually going pretty fast.

    Yea, I been copy and pasting myself. Have a Pathfinder world that is shared by two other GM's in my game so we have a central page, with the commonly used info, and then each has their own page for their campaign specific stuff. To keep things looking uniform there's been a bit of copy/paste

    There used to be a great tool to download the whole thing, but it went out with the Reforge.  I think it was made by Chainsaw, and it was really useful....

    Just trying to help out.

    There still is a download tool under the advanced tab in the settings section of each OP site, or at least it's available for each of my sites. I also believe there's a tool that let's you view the download if I remember correctly, but I don't remember where that is, or it does it right from the downloaded files. Haven't looked at any of my downloads for over a year.

    I created a hub campaign for all the common stuff across my campaigns. Then built individual OPs for the active games. (See my sig for links). It's a bit clunky, but I'm coordinating 40 years of play across four game systems. As always, YMMV.
