Player's Handbook (3.5)

Watermarked PDF

Endless adventure and untold excitement await!

Prepare to venture forth with your bold companions into a world of heroic fantasy. Within these pages, you'll discover all the tools and options you need to create characters worthy of song and legend for the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game.

The revised Player's Handbook is the definitive rulebook for the 3.5 edition of the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game. It contains complete rules for the 3.5 edition and is an essential purchase for anyone who wants to play the game.

The revised Player's Handbook updates several character classes to make them more balanced, including the bard, druid, monk, paladin, and ranger. Spell lists for characters have also been revised and some spell levels adjusted. Skills have been consolidated clarified. And a larger number of feats have been added to give even more options for character customization in this area.

In addition, the new and revised content instructs players on how to take full advantage of the tie-in D&D miniatures line.

We (Wizards) recognize that some of the legacy content available on this website does not reflect the values of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise today. Some older content may reflect ethnic, racial, and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. This content is presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Dungeons & Dragons teaches that diversity is a strength, and we strive to make our D&D products as welcoming and inclusive as possible. This part of our work will never end.

Why can you not buy the original 3rd edition Players Handbook? I know this version is better but I would like to read it.

And I still play 3.0, as I didn't like most of the changes in 3.5

I have seen others that also play 3.0 still but unless you have the physical books then people will have a lot of trouble tracking it down, I have not seen it anywhere.

I will also really like for the original 3.0 rulebook to be available, they were still way better than the overpowered 3.5 stuff...

WoW with 6E coming out soon you would think these would go up as all PODS by now.

Poorly-applied tables of contents. Not only is the spell descriptions section only 1 single entry, there's also an issue where certain PDF readers default to displaying the pages on the wrong facing, presumably because the ToC page numberings are off by 1 from how they should be.

Spell and Magic Item compendiums are on POD, the three cores of 3.5 deserve to be on POD, with the hardcover options.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
