Description Edit | History

User comment:

In 1995 TSR released a revised edition of the 2nd edition book. This required a judgement call as to whether this was a new RPG Item or just a new version of the existing 1989 Player's Handbook. In the end, it was felt that the layout changes and other smaller corrections brought the two books' similarity below the 98.3% threshold specified in our Guide to Data Entry, so we created a new item entry for it.


From the book's Foreword (p. 3):

Rest assured that this is still the same version of the AD&D game that your friends, classmates, and business partners have been playing for years.

Yes, there are some small and subtle changes in the rules, but you would have to read the whole book very carefully, and have a tremendous memory, to find them. (The changes are the sorts of minor corrections and clarifications we make every time we reprint and we've reprinted both the Player’s Handbook® and Dungeon Master Guide™ more than 10 times since 1989!)

So what has changed? Obviously, the books look different. We were awfully proud of them when they released in 1989, but the world doesn't stand still for anyone. We decided that after six years, it was time for a new look.

And as long as AD&D was getting a new suit of clothes we elected to let out the seams a bit, too. Both books are a lot bigger: 25% more pages in the PHB, 33% more in the DMG. And we used them up just looking good. Inside you'll find bigger illustrations, lots more color, and pages that are easy to read.
