Sage advice

Rules roundup

The following PDF to make it easier for you to find answers to your questions:
Sage Advice Compendium (version 1.0)

The PDF not only collects Sage Advice questions to date, but also lists the sources of the game’s official rules. Even better, we’ll expand that document every time we publish Sage Advice (the questions at the end of this column are also included). The PDF will effectively become the FAQ for the game.


Here’s a link to the latest version of the Player’s Handbook errata document:
Player’s Handbook Errata (version 1.1)

The eagle-eyed Sam Simpson, a member of our customer service team, noticed that the document released on June 10 missed a few details that appear in the third printing of the Player’s Handbook. As a result, we’ve updated the document to version 1.1 to be truly comprehensive. Here’s a list of the parts that have changed since version 1.0:

  • Ranger’s Companion (The document now clarifies that the beast can spend Hit Dice during a short rest.)
  • Wild Magic Surge (A surge can happen once per turn.)
  • Pact of the Tome (The chosen cantrips needn’t be from the same spell list.)
  • Suffocating (The words “or are choking” now appear in the first sentence.)
