From the Publisher
When the Dungeons & Dragons Player’s Handbook rolled out [in September 2014].
This edition of D&D is fresh take on the beloved game, while also echoing back to classic older versions, rightly putting the emphasis back on story, roleplaying, and worldbuilding. The reboot should have the effect of both luring back jaded former players and attracting hordes of newbies. The books are smartly designed, too, with just enough artwork to inspire your next adventure. And they call it a game...a game!
From the Designers
With this book and a set of dice, you have everything you need for a lifetime of D&D gaming
The Player’s Handbook provides everything you need to create your own character for the D&D game. Create a wood elf fighter who is the champion of the peasantry, a mountain dwarf cleric who guards the relics of the gods, a dragonborn rogue plagued by guilt over a past crime, or a human wizard delving into the secrets of the cosmos. Those are just a few of the character options available. The choices you make and the story you tell are all yours.
The book details the most popular options for characters—enough to make an unlimited number of heroes—including wielders of weapons, wondrous spells, ingenuity, and magical healing.
