The Dungeon Inn has released a new video that gives us a good overview of what to expect in the City of Guilds. The Youtuber sums up each of the ten guilds of Ravnica well, so this video is perfect for someone who's not familiar with the Magic: The Gathering setting.

Watch the video above.

I didn't even notice that Niv-Mizzet is featured on the front cover. It's a good thing that this video pointed it out.

Here's the official description of Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica:

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.

Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica is out now, and you can get it for $49.99 (MSRP).
