D&D 5E free rules PDF updated to include monsters and other DM info


Wizards have released version 2.0 of the free Basic Rules PDF on their website, and added a section for Dungeon Masters as well.

The DM section has its own PDF, so make sure you grab both of them from this here Wizards website.

Changes to the Basic Rules for players are:

  • Added acid splash and poison spray spells.
  • Added noble background.
  • Added appendix containing the Forgotten Realms deities.
  • Added appendix containing descriptions of the five factions that feature in the D&D Adventurers League.
  • Legal text added to the footer to allow reproduction for personal purposes.

So there you go. This is of course in line with exactly what Wizards said they would do: continually update the PDF to incorporate new material. Brill.
