First Five Fantasy Roleplaying is an easy-to-master game based on the fifth introductory boxed version of the original fantasy roleplaying game. It is ideal for young players and players who are young at heart. This Player’s Guide contains all the rules you need to play exciting dungeon adventures, through levels 1 to 5. Just add some funny shaped dice, monsters, and friends!

This book is the Player’s Guide for First Five Fantasy Roleplaying. To play the game, at least one person in the group will need a copy of the complete First Five Fantasy Roleplaying rulebook, the 1991 boxed set (in the black box) of the world's first fantasy roleplaying game, or the popular encyclopedia of rules, which is also suggested for use once your adventurers gain enough experience to move beyond the first five levels.

The Player's Guide is intended to be a table reference for players during play. It does not contain monsters or treasure. It includes:

  • Character creation
  • The 7 basic character classes (Cleric, Fighter, Magic-User, Thief, Dwarf, Elf, Halfling)
  • Cleric and Magic-User spells from levels 1 to 3
  • All the "black box" basic rules of play

I purchased both the player's guide and character sheet. But the download-link for the player's guide only downloads another copy of the character sheet.

There should be two download links associated with this title - one is the Player's Guide and one is the character sheet. They both appeared correctly from my view, but I probably misconfigured something like I did with the preview, for which I am very sorry. It should have been working for the last month at least now. If you are still unable to download the Player's Guide file please let me know.

Thank you for fixing that link & notifying me it was fixed. That link is working correctly for me now: It finally downloaded the player's guide for me & I appreciate that.

I apologise - it looks like the preview was showing the character sheet. This has been corrected.

The quick preview is now working correctly but the full sized preview is still not working (it just downloads the character sheet). I am working on correcting this.

I couldn't get the full-sized preview feature to use the correct file, so I uploaded the first 12 pages as a "Publisher Preview" instead. Thank you for pointing out the problem.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
