Secrets

When creating a story, you probably want to keep secrets that your players will only find out about later.

Every entity in Kanka can have Entity Notes, which is a tab displayed when viewing an entity. This is where we recommend keeping secrets related to the entity.

Kanka secrets

When creating an entity note, you can set the permissions of who can see it. You can make this only visible to campaign admins, only to you (when co-dming and having secrets from other admins), to members of the campaign (for example if the campaign is public), or visible to all.

You can also override these general permissions by setting individual permissions for members of your campaign. For example, you can allow a player to view and edit an entity note while also making it only visible to admins. Or you can prevent one player from viewing an entity note, but allow other players to see it.

If you want entity notes to be visible on the entity's main view, you can do so by "pinning" them. This will display them below the entity's text. Only entity notes visible to a user will be shown there.
