There has recently been a war across almost all of Ravnica; it lasted 30 years and touched every citizen and was far more destructive than any war previous. It ended just a short time ago with the signing of the Guildpact, a magical treaty between every faction of power wherein each guild swore to uphold 1,000 years of peace.
Part of what led to this war was secrecy and greed. Insularity goes along with being boldly opinionated and Ravnicans are both. The guilds of the era could not see eye to eye and desired each other’s esoteries so deeply that war become their only option. As more guilds became involved the stakes grew out of control and the horrors of war spiraled into ever-darker pits. Awful acts of atrocity and dark magic, even from the seemingly naive or friendly, became the norm.
Finally, the leaders of the guilds had to step forward and take drastic steps toward peace. It didn’t take long for most of them to agree to the Guildpact compromise. Now, though it seems reconciliation is the future, mistrust and intrigue abound. What were the guilds doing or planning before the cease-fire? Could they still have hidden weapons? What do they really want? Will this peace last?
