There are quite a few things you need to learn when starting out with Dungeons & Dragons, but even experienced players often need to look things up, such as abilities, rules and spells. Helpful guidebooks are available, and an app that aggregates this info and puts it within reach can certainly come in handy.
D&D Spellbook is exactly what the name suggests, an application that gathers content from several sources and provides you with an accessible spell database for your D&D games.
The app allows you to search through the Player’s Handbook, Elemental Evil Player’s Companion and Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide. You can filters results based on source or search through all of them at once.
Since the spell database is stored locally, you can access the information you need at any time, from your desktop or mobile device, without having to be connected to the Internet.
In addition to selecting the preferred source, you can also filter the results based on class, school or level. Once you have found the spell you are looking for, you need only click its entry in the left-hand panel to view all the available information.
Of course, it is also possible to search for spells by name directly, a much better option if you already know or are pretty sure what the spell is called.
The spell info is presented in a clear manner, and the uncluttered user interface makes it easy to both find what you need and read the descriptions.
It you find the white background to be much too bright, you can switch to the alternative dark theme at any time.
On the whole, D&D Spellbook is a clear-cut Windows 10 app that can be of great help to Dungeons & Dragons players. It provides quick access to spells from multiple sources, and it features a minimalistic, well-designed UI.
