This campaign will be run in D&D 5e. All material from The Player’s Handbook will hold true unless specifically noted otherwise. While I don’t expect you to have the book memorized, I do expect you to have at least read the entirety of Chapters 4 through 10, as well as the sections regarding your own race and class in Chapter 2 and 3, respectively. It will help the game run much more smoothly if everyone has done this.
- The Player’s Handbook – There are many rules in The Player’s Handbook which say things like “Variant Rule,” “Optional Rule,” or “Ask your DM.” This post notes which of these variant rules will be used, and should clarify any other ambiguities about how the game might be run.
- The Dungeon Master’s Guide – Though you, the players, are not expected to have read this book, there are also many variant or optional rules in The Dungeon Master’s Guide. This post explains the variant rules which will be used, and which rules they override in The Player’s Handbook, if any.
- Homebrew Rules – These are other rules I have found in various places on the internet and decided to use. This post explains the homebrew rules which will be used, and which rules they override in The Player’s Handbook, if any.
- House Rules – These are general guidelines for how I expect the game to be played.
