An integral part of the Magic: The Gathering (MTG) are the five sources of differently colored mana. There is one source of uncolored mana, though that isn’t relevant to this story ark. The Guilds of Ravnica can be characterized by the 10 different combinations of two mana colors. Each mana color represents a different value system and fighting style related to each color. The religion and mythos behind each mana color will probably be altered in the Guildmaster’s text, as it clashes with religion and practices already established in the world of Dungeons & Dragons.When comparing the 10 guilds of Ravnica to the mythos of DnD, there are many attributes that closely mirror the Alignment chart system. To Dungeons and Dragons readers who are less familiar with Magic: The Gathering, it may seem like a lot to catch up on. To those looking to dive deeper into Wizards lore, let’s use the Alignment System to break down the 10 Guilds of Ravnica.
THE D&D ALIGNMENT CHART
A good individual strives to protect the interest of the group above the interest of themselves. Conversely, an evil individual holds the protection and interest of themselves above the interest of the group. In a battle scenario where a group of adventurers is close to death, a good character may react differently than an evil character. A good individual may play the “hero” role and sacrifice themselves to save the group.Think Gandalf the Grey from Lord of the Rings. An evil individual may be focused on their own wellbeing, fleeing the scene to ensure their own survival. They may even loot the recently deceased party after the threat leaves. That being said, a character categorized as evil does not necessarily mean they’re a murderous and horrible individual. It simply means they’re not as willing to risk their lives in a combat situation. Apply this idea to other goals and combat situations, and you’ll have greater insight into the mind of your assigned character.
FIVE COLORS FOR FIVE TIERS
- Lawful = White
- Chaotic = Red
- Good = Green
- Evil = Black
- Neutral = Blue
