Revisions to the Dungeons
Roleplaying Game Core Rulebooks
of the Coast, Inc. has some great news to share with our loyal Dungeons
& Dragons roleplaying game fans. Since the release of the latest
edition of the D&D core rulebooks in 2000, we have listened
hard to the reviews, accolades, criticism, and other comments that our
fans have contributed about these titles. The past two years have been
filled with consumer feedback that has provided us with a wealth of information
for making our books richer in depth and gameplay -- in short, more opportunity
for every fan to enjoy the game a little more.
gathering this invaluable input from the fans and putting it together
with our own observations, it was clear that some targeted revisions in
the three core rulebooks would go a long way toward creating the requested
improvements in the D&D roleplayers gaming experience.
Therefore, we have incorporated fan comments and suggestions into upcoming
revised editions of the Players Handbook, Dungeon Masters
Guide, and Monster Manual.
the overall rules system remains intact, these targeted changes have been
designed to help with character play, convey consistency, and improve
overall game flow.
core rulebooks will be on store shelves in July 2003, and we will be releasing
more details in the months leading up to release. Please watch Dragon
Magazine and the Wizards of the Coast, Inc. website for more information.
like to thank our fans for giving us such reliable and valuable input,
and we firmly believe that with your continued help and support, Wizards
of the Coast, Inc. will continue to provide the foremost roleplaying game
