New Official D&D Campaign Setting: Ravnica?...

Searching through the planes, we suddenly stumbled upon a thing totally unexpected...

There is a possible surprise announcement of a new Fifth Edition Dungeons & Dragons Campaign Setting.
And it's a Magic the Gathering's world, Ravnica!


We're talking about a hardcover book with a release date of November 20th 2018. As for the title, there are many interpretations. In my opinion, calling it "Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica" could mean that the books' authors are changing the term "Dungeon Master" into "Guildmaster" for this specific world, suggest a connection to the WotC Dungeon Master's Guild, or hint on some unique guild mechanic that could be devised for this setting. Maybe something else, we'll have to see.

I'm writing this late at night, but it's 23rd of July. This means that, according to Nathan Stewart, today is the day Wizards of the Coast should announce new products. Roleplaying community generally hoped this could be about some awaited 5e Campaign Settings. And with most people expecting those to be EberronSpelljammer or even Planescapenobody seen Magic the Gathering's Ravnica coming.

You can find the book on Amazon. We'll quote the description for you:


Explore a worldwide cityscape filled to the brim with adventure and intrigue in this campaign setting for the world's greatest roleplaying game

"A perpetual haze of dreary rain hangs over the spires of Ravnica. Bundled against the weather, the cosmopolitan citizens in all their fantastic diversity go about their daily business in bustling markets and shadowy back alleys. Through it all, ten guilds--crime syndicates, scientific institutions, church hierarchies, military forces, judicial courts, buzzing swarms, and rampaging gangs--vie for power, wealth, and influence. These guilds are the foundation of power on Ravnica. They have existed for millennia, and each one has its own identity and civic function, its own diverse collection of races and creatures, and its own distinct subculture. Their history is a web of wars, intrigue, and political machinations as they have vied for control of the plane."

Is it really happening? Or is it maybe a placeholder?...
I must confess it doesn't seem like a placeholder to me. But we'll know for sure after it's officially confirmed.

If you'd like to know more about this (originally) MTG trading card game setting, look no further.


"Ravnica is a plane whose main planet is covered in a large city, also referred to as Ravnica. It takes its flavor from that of Eastern Europe. Ravnica is the setting of the Ravnica block, Return to Ravnica block and Guilds of Ravnica block expansions."

In addition to the above Guildmaster's Guide, Amazon prepared respective pages for two other D&D Ravnica products:

D&D Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica Map Pack D&D Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica Dice


Premium dice for the world's greatest roleplaying game

"Heed Your Guild! Life in the big city isn't always easy. As tensions between the guilds run high, the streets of Ravnica have never been more perilous.
A good set of dice may just save your hide."

So, there would be also a set of maps for the enormous city of Ravnika (a really big metropoly) and a custom dice set. We don't know more at this point. 
Was our yesterday's hype a bit premature?... Must admit I feel a bit like that at the moment. But let's wait for more details and the official announcements. Such a twist sure could be unexpected for us, players, but not business-wise. Though keep in mind it's still unofficial.

Nonetheless, the setting is a world coming from a popular trading card game, another big Wizards of the Coast intellectual property.
There certainly is a big audience.

So, what do you say. Love it, hate it? Confused?

Hockey! Capital of $. 23 thousand, this young man won $. 234 million from Guess the Score.

The round of 16 of Euro 2020 has ended, a number of surises were created where several big teams fell at the hands of dark horses on. These results, then become a blessing in itself for this young man from Canada.
With only two Canadian dollars (approximately $. 23 thousand) in capital, a young man managed to reap a profit that reached 10 thousand times after correctly guessing the score of the Euro 2020 round of 16 match on asianbookie.
Reported 20 Min, quoted from the Journal de Montreal, this unidentified young man managed to guess the score for the matches Croatia vs Spain and France vs Switzerland in normal time.
By risking one Canadian dollar in those two matches, and with the same guess, namely a 3-3 draw in normal time, luck seems to have come his way. Unexpectedly, the young man's score was not wrong.
As a result, he was suddenly rich overnight. In total, he managed to pocket 20,000 Canadian dollars (approximately $. 234 million).
Hockey and recklessness are two things that cannot be separated from this gambling. With minimal capital, the young man dared to put his money for unreasonable results, although at the end of the game he laughed out loud.
The match between Croatia and Spain itself ended with La Furia Roja's victory, after Luis Enrique's team was able to score two additional goals in Extra Time.
Meanwhile, the match between France and Switzerland was decided until the penalty shootout, where the 2018 World Cup champions were finally eliminated after Kylian Mbappe's shot was denied by goalkeeper Yann Sommer.
If you look in the mirror at these two matches, many football fans did not expect that it would end in a draw in 90 minutes and create such a lively goal.
However, it is worth remembering that there is a saying that 'the ball is round', which means anything can happen on the gridiron.
