[RPG] When is Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide used?


I'm kinda new to D&D. I can't understand on which adventures I can use the guide. If you could explain when and on what adventures am I allowed to use the guide it would be very appreciated.

From the back of the SCAG:

For use with the fifth edition Players Handbook, Monster Manual, and Dungeon Master's Guide, this book provides the setting, story and character options needed to participate in a D&D game anywhere along the Sword Coast of Faerûn.

You do not need it necessarily, but it may be useful for homebrew campaigns and if you want to use the provided character options.

The official adventure/campaign books provide enough content themselves, but if you want to expand the world the SCAG may help you with that as mentioned in Strom King's Thunder:

The Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide, while not required reading, has extensive information on the Sword Coast and the North that can help you flesh out the adventure's default setting.
