At present you can't. It's a planned feature for the future.

You may create a custom view and have a second story and you'll be able to duplicate topics between views.

However keep in mind you won't be able to have 2 topics with the same name meaning you cannot have 2 versions of the same character for instance.

Why would you want to copy your realm at the begining ? If we have a better idea of your goal maybe we could find something to help.

Some reasons to share a realm with yourself or duplicate a realm you've created for your own use:
  • You've entered a system and want to use it with multiple game worlds or other content.
  • You've entered some content (game world, adventure, etc.) and want to use it with multiple groups, keeping revealed information separate. (Individual reveal is another way to do this if/when that's made available.)
  • You've entered some content (game world, adventure, etc.) and want to use it with multiple groups, keeping any alterations separate. (So if group A blows up a building, group B's building is left alone.)
  • You've entered some content (game world, adventure, etc.) and want to create another version of it. (Different times/timelines, different systems, etc.)
  • You've entered part of a system, game world, or similar and want to layer other parts over it. (Ex: you've entered the Core Rulebook and want to add the Ultimately Complete Fighting Person book separately. This is more likely sharing than duplicating, for use with the Content Market.)

What I would love to see is a Master/Campaign type Version. Where I could create a master copy whose changes are automatically copied (transfered) into the campaigns based on this master, but at the same time I have seperate campaigns with the in-game Information I've created just for that campaign.

You likely will be able to do that by sharing a realm with yourself, which won't be available until or after the Content Market is available.

Yes, they are saying that it should be coming, but timing is very difficult to judge. "Soon" doesn't always mean what you think it means.

Although in this case, I believe "soon" means the next big upgrade along with the web app. Since LWD has granted everyone a free extension to their RW subscriptions until after the content market goes live, there's probably a certain financial motivation to get it out there sooner rather than later.

Sorry if this ends up as a duplicate post, but since the big June update (2016), are there any plans to have this feature available before the full rollout of the Content Market? I'm guessing it may be easier to manage partial or fully copied realms than managing the bought content?
