d20pfsrd.com Sources Explanation for Users

D20pfsrd.com includes vast amounts of content from a wide variety of sources. In order to help GMs to be better able to tell their players what is and isn’t allowed in their campaigns we’ve developed several images we call “Source Stamps.” These stamps are intended to help a GM when he is deciding what is appropriate for his campaign.

On almost all pages you will find a box, either within the content area you are looking at, or at the very bottom of the page titled “Section 15: Copyright Notice.” This box will tell you where the content came from, and in most cases include a link to where you can purchase that content.

Note: We do not change content from the original published form in almost all cases but we do sometimes add Editor’s Notes boxes showing errata or clarifying information. Minor corrections may be made on a case by case basis (such as to fix obvious missing punctuation or spelling errors etc.)
