Bought 3.0 core rulebooks thinking they were 3.5 Nobody has 3.0 help me! Need a simple upgrade

Simple, perhaps not, but I can point you to the update booklet Wizards of the Coast had for converting your 3.0 books into 3.5:

Yes, while working on a character that I never did get to use, I found that there are some major differences in prices of items from 3.0 to 3.5.

D20srd. Its 3.5 and free for download.

Here's my short, sweet, and off the top of my head conversion:

Classes: spread out class abilities to reduce dead levels (lots of class changes, BTW)
Length/Width: creatures now take up a perfect square, called Space
Haste: adds 10' to your movement, and gives you one extra attack (no double spells)
Actions: partial actions were removed. Now it's just full round, standard, move, and free.
Two handed fighting: the Ambidextrous feat got rolled into Two-Weapon Fighting.
Player advantage: Players can now make a level check to overrule the DM, DC 10.

Several changes were superficial, like healing spells became conjuring school.
And there are all kinds of exciting new feats, that give you a +2 on two related skills. Okay they're not exciting, and I like skill Focus better in most cases anyway.

Did I miss any big ones? Or throw in a stinker? :decision:

duration of the buff spells. went from hours to minutes. Ranger feats got spread out a little.

hmmmm, i don't remember anything about the "player advantage" in our group...

I looked at the pdf, but I found that it didn't attually tell me anything. It said that we changed this and that, but not what it was changed to.

I use this website (http://srd.pbemnexus.com/home.html) quite often when looking up info for 3.5 characters. While it might not give you a straight conversion, you can take your character and using the info on the site, re-build them as a 3.5 character. Well, provided it deals with Core, Psionic, Divine or Unearthed Arcana info.

Hope this helps.

Oh BTW - I had the core set of 3.0. When 3.5 came out, I bought the PHB3.5. Conversion: complete.
