Books included: Player’s Handbook (PHB), Dungeon Master’s Guide (DMG), Hoard of the Dragon Queen (HotDQ), Player’s Companion for Elemental Evil (EE), Out of the Abyss (OotA), Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide (SCAG)*, Curse of Strahd (CoS).

If you have any doubts as to whether or not a race/class/background fits into your campaign, discuss it with your DM. Don’t forget to read the appendixes of some books which clarify how to use these features in other worlds.

* SCAG has a lot of new options mainly meant for Faerun. In this list I’ve only included ones with a mechanical difference to the PHB. However, aside from those there are also many options that simply offer different storylines and backgrounds with no mechanical differences. Read SCAG for more info on any Faerun-based character you intend to play. SCAG backgrounds are often exclusive to Faerun and would need modification to fit into other worlds.

** There are 4 options here that definitely need to be discussed with your DM. The Aarakocra is a potentially overpowered race because of L1 flying. The Ghostwise Halfling is extremely rare. The Gray Dwarves (Duergar) rarely leave their subterranean cities and if they do, it is mostly as exiles. The Cult of the Dragon Infiltrator background feature is reliant on the cult actually being a part of your campaign. Maybe you can modify the feature to fit into your campaign. These three options are marked with **.
