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 Eberron, Spelljammer or even Planescape, nobody seen Magic the Gathering's Ravnica coming. You can find the book on Amazon. We'll quote the description for you: 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. 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 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?
Wandering Mage posted a blog entry in Roleplaying NewsSo here's the news! 2 newly edited, official D&D 5e worlds (Campaign Sourcebooks) coming to Dungeons & Dragons! First one is a Campaign Prototype for Eberron available on WotCs' DM's Guild. Second is a Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica. Eberron: Wayfinder’s Guide to Eberron is available now on DMsGuild.com. Ravnica: Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica in game stores November 9, everywhere else November 20. Eberron 5e - Availability Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron is available now on DMsGuild.com and sold in PDF format for $19,99. Keith Baker, the original Eberron's creator, describes the original idea behind the Eberron Campaign Setting: Wayfinder's Guide to Ebberon - Printed Version? There is no printed version of Eberron Campaign Setting announced at this moment. Placing Wayfinder's Guide on DMs Guild most likely means that Eberron is going to be another world, after Forgotten Realms and Ravenloft, available for DMs Guild users to create content with. We'll confirm that as soon there's official permission, but it looks obvious. UPDATE: And here it is. Eberron is now officially allowed. More about the War of Eberron from Keith Baker: And the player races of Eberron in 5e through the words D&D Beyond's Todd Kenreck & D&D Creative Director Mike Mearls: Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron - Book Description From DMsGuild about Eberron's Wayfinder's Guide 5e: Remember though that this is only a prototype Eberron Campaign Setting! Which means the following: So this new PDF ebook is basically something between Unearthed Arcana and retail Campaign Setting - an official release, but targeted for DM's Guild which is a specific place, serving its purpose. That doesn't mean it's not a valuable new material - it's just not allowed in Adventurer's League yet, and it's not a fully finished Campaign Setting. Such would be priced higher and sold as hardcover. Which may happen in future, like with Ravnica. UPDATE: According to D&D's Mike Mearls, this prototype ebook will be updated with new data and revisions in the process of production of the final Eberron Campaign Setting. So if you buy the PDF now, you'll have the latest content added later for free. Still, those 2 books (pdf and hardcover setting) should have some original content, as Mike Mearls said on Twitter: "we want the owners of both to be happy".
