Wow, Basic D&D, with four classes, four races, 1st through 20th levels, monsters, magic items, and more, is a free PDF. Play without ever having to buy anything. They saying it is equivalent in scope to the old Rules Cyclopedia. Here is the link to the article: http://www.wizards.com/DnD/Article.aspx ... l/20140527
