Cite book

This template makes it easy to reference a D&D book.


{{cite book|Dungeon Master's Guide (4e)|42}}
{{cite book|Against the Cult of the Reptile God|12-14}}
{{cite book|From the Ashes|18|sub=Atlas}}

You don't need to add <ref> tags; the template will add these automatically.

This template is only for D&D books, e-books and annuals. It does not include magazines (but see {{cite dragon}}, {{cite dungeon}}, and {{cite polyhedron}}), novels, third-party products, or other books.


  • 1: The first parameter is the book name. It should form a wikilink if the book is in the site's database. Where names clash, you will have to disambiguate (e.g. Player's Handbook (3.5), not Player's Handbook.) Try searching the list in Module:Book/data.
  • 2: The second parameter is the page or page range (e.g. 42, or 25-27). Try to cite page ranges to save people the effort of searching the entire book.
  • Sub: (Optional) In the case of boxed sets which come with multiple books, you must use this field to identify the title of the book.
