Handbook Index

The Handbook Index
A compilation of handbooks and resources. Now with a discussion thread (newest unread post).

This is just a listing of all the handbooks and resource threads we have here at BG. If there are any good handbooks on other sites, post a link and I'll add it.

This post will be revised as handbooks are moved over. Everything marked as "BG" is still on brilliantgameologists.com and has yet to be ported over.

Note: If you're looking for something Pathfinder-specific, check out the Pathfinder Handbook and Handy Links Index as well. It has a lot of PF handbook links that aren't in here.

Note: Many old threads from Brilliant Gameologists have been ported, quickly and dirtily, in the Hatchet Job Port Thread.

To be Removed

Corrections
As of November 5, 2012, the WotC community forums shut down, rendering a great many handbooks inaccessible. Many of them have been preserved in other locations, listed here.

Recently ported from BG
Note: I left both links for BG guides that were ported over in MMB by posters other than the original author. This way, if the author ever decides to port it over him or herself, the link will still be available for easy access.

Reserved 4/4

If you've got a handbook you want added, just post a reply in the discussion thread. If you're posting there, all you need is a link.

Don't mind me, I am just posting the old Handy Links thread from the BG Min/Max It! subforum. It'll come here the way it was there, so any typos and other stupidities will remain. Sorry about that, try to take it with humour.

Here's almost 70k views worth of links for you:

Ignoring the third part, it had no links, because I got lazy.

do we need to wait on the original thread poster to move a given thread, or can anyone (with writer privs) do it, so long as credit is maintained?

If the original author is unavailable I guess just move it and quote them on the matter?
We can revert the handbooks back to them if they arrive to claim it.
Everything is edible. Just that there are things only edible once per lifetime.
It's a god-eat-god world.

Procrastination is the thief of time; Year after year it steals, till all are fled,
And to the mercies of a moment leaves; The vast concerns of an eternal scene.

Well, I've kind of just been waiting for the word to start copy/pasting them over^^

Same here. If the user is known to be active here, then it is prudent to ask, but otherwise I guess there is no need. Inform if you can, give credit no matter what. That should work just fine.

I see my Sha'ir guide is already listed (I'm surprised, I assume I'm just talking to myself about it), and I hope to have a Binder guide up soon.  It was always my plan to actually write one, rather than just fix the formatting of the old one (as I did on BG) so hopefully that will be a reality with the new forums.  I find this thread incredibly helpful by the way, thank you for maintaining it.

I've already ported my handbooks, and the Tier System has been transferred too.

Moved the Shugenja Handbook over, if anyone's interested in the class.

All yours^^  I'm trying to work up the courage to move the cleric and the rest of the abandoned divine caster threads over - the thought of reformatting the cleric thread though... ugh :p

i know, right? i keep trying to ignore the typos and additions in-thread that were not added to the main post and so forth... but it keeps dragging me in! not to mention the formatting issues. i've been think of trying some of those online bbcode <--> html converters in the effort to port. if you beat me to it, let me know how it works.

Most of the online converters work for shit, btw at least for this purpose - I end up spending more time editing out errors than it would take just to format the whole thing myself.
