The other problem is that while one book is called the players manual and the other book the dungeon masters guide, the truth is that you can't really do full character creation with just the players handbook. For example all the prestige class options are detailed in the DM's guide! Go figure. Were they short of material to fill up the DM book or something?
So if you're an experienced player and, if like me you enjoy pretty books filled with game mechanices, then go for this. Otherwise stick to the basic set or you will be overwhelmed.
The only complaint... my dice roll low and they need to roll high for everything in this ed. :)
This set is the complete set for the game. If you already have someone running the game then you only need a player's guide to start. If you want to run a game... well.. hopefully you've at least played it before. To run a game you could conceivably need every book imaginable, but many of the rules were traditionally the dm's call.. so just the DM's guide and player's guide is a must. The monster manuel just makes it all a bit easier.
It's fun. It's incredibly interactive and there is tons on the internet to spice your game up. You can even get the character sheets needed online for free.
The best thing that I think WOTC could do at this point is apologize for what they have done to the game, bring back Gary Gygax and Magaret Weis and truly make it D&D again...
I read all the new core rules books and I am reminded of all the reasons that I never wanted to play the other role playing games.
p.s. go to wizerds and download the expantions to the books
Sorry about the speling i am disliksic

This set fixes some things that needed fixing but you know that they will just come out with another edition as they can't get it right.Published on Jan. 6 2004 by warlon_du_dratha
This is a great deal, and as far as I know the first of it's kind. Go figure, it came out just after I bought the first two core rulebooks and right when I finished saving for the... Read morePublished on Dec 26 2003
