We've just launched a new version of the site that includes an improved search, better spell and monster organization, and more!

Hey! Stuff is missing!

Some content you may be expecting was not released as part of the 5e SRD, so we aren’t allowed to include it in this site.

We are hoping to fill in the gaps using quality homebrew and 3rd party OGL content. Contact us or make a pull request if you know something we should add!

The Open5e API includes all monsters and spells from the SRD as well as a search API, so you can easily access any part of the SRD from your app or website.

The subdomain will remain indefinitely as the preview location for future API changes.

We will also start working on creating more supporting art for the 5e SRD.
