Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

In May, Wizard of the Coast announced that the Magic: The Gathering would be returning to the plane of Ravnica. Three related card sets will carry the classic collectible card game into its 26th year. Now, it’s announced a formal crossover with Dungeons & Dragons called Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica.

The $49.95 hardcover sourcebook should be in stores on Nov. 20. It will include everything that fans of the original tabletop role-playing game need to explore the world of Ravnica, including classes, races, monsters and setting information on its ten opposing guilds.

“It’s super cool for fans of D&D and Magic to be playing together in the same multiverse,” said Elaine Chase, vice president, global brand strategy and marketing for Magic: The Gathering, in a press release.

“With the huge surge in popularity of D&D and Magic’s commitment to bring the lore and storytelling to life, the timing seemed perfect,” added Nathan Steward, director of D&D.

This isn’t the first time that planes from the world of Magic have been ported over to D&D. The process began in 2016 with the Zendikar plane. Since then, Wizards has made each of its new settings available as a fully-produced, free D&D sourcebook. That includes Plane Shift: Innistrad, Plane Shift: Amonkhet, Plane Shift: Kaladesh and Plane Shift: Ixalan. There’s even an adventure available for download, X Marks The Spot, set in Ixalan that you can run right now.

Wizards also announced that Wayfarer’s Guide to Eberron, the fan-favorite high-fantasy noire setting created by Keith Baker in 2002, would be available as a $19.99 digital download starting today.

“It’s been sixteen years since I planted the first seeds that would become Eberron, and watching it grow has been an amazing journey,” said Baker in the same press release. “So many good people have been involved in creating the world we see today, and it’s been wonderful to see it come to life. I can’t wait to see what people do with the world!”
