Sage Advice returns with a collection of rules references to help your D&D games run more smoothly.
We’ve prepared an updated Sage Advice Compendium, errata for a few books, and new lists of monsters from both the Monster Manual and Volo’s Guide to Monsters. It’s up to each DM to decide whether to use these tools in a particular campaign.
Sage Advice Compendium
The Sage Advice Compendium gathers official rules answers in one PDF. This month, I’ve revisited some old answers in it and expanded or clarified them. The compendium also includes links to the new errata documents.
You can see which sections of the compendium are new or substantially revised by looking for any paragraph in a shaded box.
If you have a D&D rules question, please reach me on Twitter (@JeremyECrawford), where I answer questions every week. Many of those answers eventually end up in the Sage Advice Compendium.
D&D Monster Lists
Every campaign features monsters—often lots of them! D&D Monster Lists catalogs all the monster stat blocks that appear in the Monster Manual and Volo’s Guide to Monsters. The monsters are listed by creature type and by challenge rating to help DMs populate their adventures.
We’ve made corrections to the latest printings of three D&D books. You can find their errata documents at the following locations:
The errata document for the Player’s Handbook has been updated to capture a few changes that have been in print for a while but were overlooked in previous versions of the errata. Specifically, the document now includes new wording for the rule on long rests and for the find steed spell. You can find the document here:
We make corrections to new printings of D&D books and let you know about the changes for the sake of clarity and thoroughness, not because we think DMs should fret about every alteration. If you’ve already been enjoying these books, we recommend you pay attention only to the revisions that you think will enhance your enjoyment of the game.
Here are other D&D reference documents we’ve posted on this website.
