Books used in our D&D Sessions.

After having read dozens of D&D sourcebooks, I’ve narrowed the list of books I use down to a selection of Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 books and Pathfinder’s books (excluding all Pathfinder setting based books).

We’ve found that Pathfinder offers a solid and beneficially updated version of the 3.5 rules set. Meanwhile many of the D&D 3.5 books provide proper amounts of lore and background information to build a cohesive world for the story to take place in.

I currently own and plan on owning any Pathfinder hardcovers. I also own the entire D&D 3.5 Forgotten Realms set of books. All other books on this list have been being acquired over time. All player based books can be given digitally.

The list includes:
