More Information Edit | History

The first and second printings were 128 pages in length and virtually identical. The second printing changed the header font used in the book and corrected some of the typos found in the first printing. The third printing retained the 128 page count of the previous printings, but erroneously used glossy pages instead of matte, and introduced new poison charts for the assassin. The fourth printing revised the barbarian class, fixed the fighter's combat dominance ability, and introduced illusionist healing magic. The additions to the fourth printing increased its page count to 144 pages.

The fifth printing was 144 pages and was the first to be released in full color. The background of each page was intended to be a light parchment color with a light font, and artwork in full color. The parchment color turned out to be darker than expected, and with the usage of a light brown color for the font, made reading difficult. This printing revised the encumbrance system and clarified the spell resistance rules, along with some other minor changes.

The sixth printing discards the parchment background of the fifth printing and replaces it with a parchment border which does not overlap the text. The font is in a darker color than the fifth printing, and is larger, which makes it easier to read. The change in font size increased the page count to 192 pages, though the content itself is similar to the fifth printing. The sixth printing lists the character classes in alphabetical order: all previous printings listed the character classes in order by prime attribute.
