    Really? They should be the exact same. I modified them both and checked them in to github last night at the same time. But yes, that's how you'd do it. I realized though I can't just cut & paste and have it work perfectly, though. It wipes out the "A - C" references at the top of each page if you just paste over all of the old text (Word sucks). Here is the link I access: https://github.com/copperdogma/dnd-phb-5e-index Here is the Repository Screen I see at the time of this post: 72109 I've attached the Word document that I retrieve. As you can see the damage resistance entry still shows page 97. 72111 Wouldn't be surprised if I am doing something wrong....

I downloaded the new Word Document several times and even cloned the site to my desktop. In all cases, the Word document had older data than the txt file.

    Yes! This is exactly the kind of feedback I want. I remember this being something I wished was in there, but I didn't write any of them down! Thanks. I've updated all of the files with better swimming references. Here's a few other possible entries I can think of (crossovers from earlier editions) : - "Disable trap" (1st edition term) - "Open doors" (1st edition term... opening/bashing a stuck door p.175-176) - "Endurance" (3rd edition skill... cf. Constitution check p. 177) - "Appraise" (3rd edition skill... Intelligence check p. 178) - "Gather information" (3rd edition skill... Charisma check p. 179, downtime activity 'researching' p. 187) - "Track" (1st edition term, 3rd edition skill... Ranger class feature Natural explorer p. 91, Survival check p. 178) - "Spot" (3rd edition skill --- cf. Perception, Investigation) - "Detect Lie" (1st edition term... cf. Insight) :)

    The biggest trick would be that EVERY page reference would also have to identify which book it refers to. So instead of: Armor Class (AC), 7, 14, 144, 177 You'd have (I made up the DMG numbers): Armor Class (AC), p7, p14, p144, p177, d16, d27, d105, d188 or maybe: Armor Class (AC), PHB: 7, 14, 144, 177; DMG: 16, 27, 105, 188 The index in the 2nd Edition DMG covered both it and the PHB. Page numbers from the DMG were in boldface to distinguish them.

    No doubt! It also feels like the released it like software: rush it out and patch it later. But it's not software. It's a book. You can't patch it (aside from what I did with this index). I'd rather they release the PHB as an app, complete with dynamic search, live examples, videos, easily accessible tables, dice roller, DM tools, etc. Whatever would help comprehension. Then they could update it as they go. I'd buy that in a second. I'd miss paper, but I wouldn't miss it THAT much. The 4e Compendium was like that. It was also hated by the D&D Design team, since it was created for the sake of the Digital Team, and basically gave away the books for free (or rather, the low price of a monthly digital fee that went to the Digital department, not the actual creators of the content). It would be nice to have a 5e Compendium program, where, like with Fantasy Grounds, you can opt into any books you buy for it (so it adds them piecemeal). However, Fantasy Grounds requires buying the books over again....

    I included the Word document on the site. Site here: https://github.com/copperdogma/dnd-phb-5e-index Direct link to downloadable Word doc here: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fcopperdogma%2Fdnd-phb-5e-index%2Fraw%2Fmaster%2FPHB%2520Index%2520Improved.docx You can edit and print that at any font size or number of columns you like! Thank you, got it.

    Yeah I'm kind of half-expecting that;) Hopefully they see it as supporting their product, helping others enjoy it more, and see it's 100% useless without owning the actual book. I hope so too, as this is pretty darn good work you have done....
