I'm working on a new template for some time now, here's a more refined version.

You'll have to use a browser that you have logged in gmail, otherwise much of the content won't be visible (this is a temporary solution, I'll be using static content once I'm done editing).

 Incidentally, this is an update of the fighter's handbook, but it's not yet finished - there may be stuff missing.

Please comment on its usability :)

Handbook template demo

Lately I've been working on the blog's css, as I've been doing tons of stuff with plain html, up to the point that I couldn't work on a post's code anymore, because the code was clogged up with html tags (and I have long abandoned blogger editor's compose mode). While I was at it, I found some jQuery examples in order to have some cute spoiler blocks, as the guides are enormous walls of text. For those that are not that tech-savvy: what you see below is a demo template that I plan to use on the handbooks. As a lot of people use the search function to find specific items in the guide (which is not easy when the text is hidden within spoiler blocks), I added a 'collapse/un-collapse all' function, which is activated by clicking the 'Feats' title. If you select an item from the 'all', 'bad', 'average', 'good' and 'perfect', the whole guide will be filtered according to your choice and only the items that have that rating will be shown. Any feedback about modifications, additions and whether this template is usable for a guide or not is welcome.

A guide to free D&D

This is a list linking to free online official d&d sources. The main tool you have to your disposal is, which has most of the Player's Handbook, Dungeon Master's Guide, Monster Manual I, Unearthed Arcana and Expanded Psionics Handbook. In addition visit crystalkeep which has downloadable pdfs with listings of pretty much everything unfortunately most of the content has been taken down. The links below come from the wizards' 3.5 excerpts archive. Each article has a print function so that you use it more easily.

Two other great sites you can use as resources are D&D Tools and IMarvinTPA's Dungeons and Dragons Database.

Although I compiled the first "guide to free D&D", other people expanded it much more. Credits for the following version go to Garryl. You can also find this list here.

Important note: I compiled this list by using regular expressions. They where quite accurate, but there may be some mistakes. If you spot a broken link or messed up text, please notify me.

[Update #5] Paladin's Handbook - Fist of Raziel

Fist of Raziel

Hello everyone and happy new year! I wish that you all have a healthy 2013 with lots of energy in order to play your favorite roleplaying games.

This year's first update will be to the Paladin's Handbook and it will focus on a powerful prestige class from Book of Exalted DeedsFist of Raziel. A free version of the prestige class can be found on the wizards' site, located here.

Fist of Raziel is a prestige class that does not have the power to break certain campaigns (like Emissary of Barachiel), but it does have a strong array of special abilities. The main features are that your Smite Evil ability is greatly enhanced and that in general your paladin chassis (full base attack, good fortitude saves and spells per day) is retained. The class has a strong martial (and since it focuses of Smite Evil, melee martial) feeling and should be perfect for a paladin looking to specialize.
