[Wizards of the Coast] Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Player’s Basic Rules now available in HTML

By on 10 January 2015

Wizards of the Coast have released the Player’s Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition in HTML format. I’ve only quickly glanced at them but it looks like it’s a single, very long, HTML page which means searching should be a breeze. Unfortunately, my Android phone and tablet running the latest version of Chrome lock up when I load it but it works on my desktop. Not too useful for mobile use (unless it’s just my devices) but a good start.


If anyone else can get it to load on their phone or tablet, please let us know in the comments.

Edit: I’ve found that if I tap “Wait” when Chrome reports that it’s not responding (a few times) it eventually loads and works fine.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
