An Initiate's Guide to the Guilds - Orzhov Syndicate


Worship at the Altar of Greed!


The world-city of Ravnica is an exciting place, and one that can be confusing and dangerous to the uninitiated. While the city may stretch over the entire plane, it would be a mistake to assume that every part of it is civilized, or even that the civilized parts are particularly safe. At the heart of Ravnica, the one ever-present factor is the city’s ten guilds, which constantly jockey with one another for dominance. It’s only natural to want to align yourself with one of these guilds, and those who insist on remaining “guildless” do so at their own peril. But what does it mean to belong to a guild, and, more importantly, what can your guild do for you? This book presents a number of new options for player characters aligned with the unscrupulous Orzhov Syndicate. Within this book, you will find:


  • A new character race, the spirit, representing the spectral denizens that serve (and rule) the powerful Orzhov Syndicate.
  • The advokist’s college, a new bard college that uses every legal trick and connivance at the Orzhov’s disposal, allowing you to draft magically binding contracts and even indenture souls.
  • The wealth domain, for clerics, which not only helps you bring in extra gold, but also helps you leverage your wealth because, after all, money is power.
  • Four new feats inspired by the Orzhov Syndicate.


Declare your allegiance today, and let your character reap the rewards of guild membership!

The Guide offers some interesting options to try out for a Ravnica setting campaign and given the nature of the Orzhov syndicate it may even work for a Ravenloft setting for some of the content. There are perhaps some minor issues with balance that may [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
