Role-playing Games Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for gamemasters and players of tabletop, paper-and-pencil role-playing games. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'd like to have a simple reference sheet for this, as people will frequently reference sourcebooks with a simple acronym. Perhaps this question can be made into such a sheet.

Most have been easy to find, some that come to mind are:

  • DMG*: Dungeon Master's Guide (I, II, II, etc)
  • PHB*: Player's Handbook (I, II, III, etc)
  • HotFL: Heroes of the Fallen Lands
  • HotEC: Heroes of the Elemental Chaos
  • HotFW: Heroes of the Feywild
  • Heroes of the Adjective Noun: Books like the above, essentially extensions of the PHBs

But I started this question because Google has failed me, what is AV2 for?

  • AV2: ???

Any others worth mentioning?

Do you want acronyms in general or acronyms for the book names? You should probably scope this question to the latter if that's what you're after –  doppelgreener Jan 10 at 1:55

Googling av2 4e answers the question. What are you having trouble with? Or is your actual question that you just really want a catalogue of D&D products and their acronyms? –  SevenSidedDie Jan 10 at 2:26

  • A general consensus abbreviation book list is here;
  • A forum glossary is here; and
  • A general concept glossary is here.

All of these links have been derived from the complete collection of character build links.

Brian Ballsun-Stanton has really great links you should check out in his answer. But, just so people don't have to go combing through lists if they don't want to, I wanted to add that the acronym in question "AV2" refers to "Adventurer's Vault 2". It is a sequel (obviously) to the "Adventurer's Vault" resource book. Both add loads of gear for use in your games with an eye toward magic items.
