The Player's Handbook, also known as Players Handbook in 1st edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (AD&D), is a book of rules for the fantasy role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons (D&D). It does not contain the complete set of rules, but only those for use by players of the game. Additional rules, for use by Dungeon Masters (DMs), who referee the game, can be found in the Dungeon Master's Guide. Many optional rules, such as those governing extremely high-level players, and some of the more obscure spells, are found in other sources.

From the January 1980 printing:

"A wealth of information for the AD&D game player"
  — Gary Gygax, creator of the AD&D® game phenomenon and author of this book.


This is it! It's the perfect player's game-playing aid and the best companion to the referee's Dungeon Masters Guide. As a player, this handbook will help you determine your character's abilities such as strength, wisdom and charisma. Character races including elves, halflings, dwarves, gnomes and others are explained in detail to make he adventure fast, fun and exciting. You'll learn the rules for progressing in character levels and the most advantageous mapping and combat procedures. And they're all in this easy to use book.
