Welcome to the online Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition System Reference Document (SRD) v5.1 Remastered in Markdown Format!

The Systems Reference Document (SRD) contains guidelines for publishing content under the Open-Gaming License (OGL). The Dungeon Masters Guild also provides self-publishing opportunities for individuals and groups. The OGL and Dungeon Masters Guild offer different kinds of publishing opportunities. For an overview of the programs, please visit the official Wizards SRD page to compare the programs.

Why Markdown format? Markdown is a lightweight markup language with plain text formatting syntax created by John Gruber. It is designed so that it can be converted to HTML and many other formats using any number of various Markdown editors. Markdown is often used to format readme files, for writing books, blogs and messages, or to simply create rich text using a plain text or markkdown editor.

! The documents contained herein are edited from scratch into Markdown format for portability and conversion to other formats. This is not a simple conversion as you find elsewhere, we have painstakingly remastered the original Wizard's SRD PDF to markdown paragraph-by-paragraph. The original documents can be downloaded from my Github OGL-SRD Repository. Please report any issues you find through our Github account.

New Features

  1. Powerful search engines for the D&D 5E SRD using our standard highlight search field (upper-left sidebar), or use the new TNT Search, an advanced full-text search feature (also upper-left sidebar), or perform a custom Google search of the SRD.
  2. Public editing and the correction of errors on pages are now available directly through Github. Links can be found in the upper right-hand corner of each page. NOTE: A free Github account/membership is required. WARNING: Abuse of this wiki-like editing process shall not be tollerated resulting in the denial of public editing.
