A compendium is a collection of items or data, typically in a concise form. Compendium packs are used to share data between worlds and reduce the strain on a world’s performance by storing large quantities of Actors, Items, Journal Entries, Macro Commands, Playlists, Rollable Tables or Scenes that are not currently in use. They are also a convenient way to back up data.

In Foundry, there are 3 types of compendiums the sidebar will display: world (), module () and system (). World modules come from the current loaded world and contain content that pertains to that particular world, while module packs come from plugin modules and systems that add additional functionality to a world or character. System compendiums contain premade content that is designed for use by players and gamemasters in the running of the game.

Each type of compendium can be accessed and managed in the Compendium Pack Directory sidebar. You can create new folders within the directory to help organize your world’s data. Compendiums are protected, meaning that only a GM or Assistant-level user can change or move their contents. However, you can filter by Compendium Pack and a folder name to see only the compendia you want to view.
