Ravnica: Is This The New D&D Setting? [UPDATED & CONFIRMED!]

First Post
Honestly, I don’t care about MtG or it’s lore but a city the size of a planet is more interesting then 90% of the old settings IMO.

And honestly, my games pull heavily from Eastern Europe so there is probably some good stuff to steal.

"D&D Guildmasters" might refer to the Dungeon Master's Guild, and the setting being opened up for use there by fans with this initial book providing the introductory framework.

Eh, maybe. But I'll bet it's play on words/book titles referring to one of the main features of the Ravnica setting - namely those 10 guilds that're mentioned in the description.

Let's see, which has a better ring to it (considering the setting)?

I wasn’t expecting this, but very pumped about it. Ravnica imo is the best MtG setting. There is two published book trilogies set in that setting as well.

Ravnica might not be the only setting that will be officially announced this year so there's still hope for Planescape, Eberron, Spelljammer, etc.

This is what I'm hoping for. I've heard rumors that it was stated in some official capacity (Twitter? Stream of Many Eyes? Can anyone confirm?) that two setting products would be introduced this year, and that classic D&D fans would be very happy. Planescape/Spelljammer in addition to Ravnica could fit that bill with crossover appeal.


Didn't they say there were two settings they hadn't announced yet for this year?

I knew I wasn't crazy! Where was this said, though?


If true, that might be the first non-core book I buy for 5e. Ravnica was the first MtG world that I really liked the setting. It was bold for Magic, and I hope it is equally bold for D&D.


Since it's a second city-type book, I imagine the mechanics laid out for the Waterdeep stuff will also work well with this new setting.

Interesting... I guess it's true. Nobody wants anything new, they just want the same things rehashed over and over.

Simple truth is: This is the first new setting for D&D for years, and the overall response is... <looks over the posts> Horror and denial... I'm not surprised, but it does make me a bit sad. It's not like all the other settings don't have decades of RPG books and expansions out there on ebay just waiting for you to grab them all. It's not even that much effort to shift them to 5th edition. Or even pathfinder. Or any other game system.

I mean, is ONE new setting book that horrible a thing?


It certainly looks real. As far as I can tell, the picture is not an existing card, and I doubt they'd commission a piece like this for a fake-out (of course, it could also be intended for a card in the upcoming Ravnica re-return). And Ravnica seems like a cool place.

I just hope that's not the only thing they're announcing tomorrow, because they've been hinting pretty hard at old settings having some love to look forward to Real Soon Now.
