Centuries ago, the entire Utvara region of Ravnica was devasted by a mysterious explosion. Every living body vanished in its wake and the only visible remnant of the event was the Schism that appeared in the sky that fateful day. The inorganic wasteland was declared a reclamation zone and a fallow period barring Utvara's repopulation ensued.
Time's almost up.
Guildpact follows Kos, now a retired Wojek, twelve years after the decamillennial into Utvara - a treasure trove waiting to be exploited. The Gruul, Izzet, and Orzhov have vying interests for control of the region, but there's something lingering in the air besides the kuga mot to which all are none-the-wiser. The Schism is growing.
There's a whole new cast of characters than in Book I, and you'll be longing for Feather, Fonn, and the familiar back in Ravnica proper. Yeah, it's painful. Among the notable in Book II are Teysa and Crix. You'll love them, you'll despise them, and then you'll love them some more. Thrulls, ogres, the nephilim, hyrdopyro- and pyrohydromancers, imps, half-demons, drakes, Niv-Mizzet the Dragon, and the lot are all waiting to meet you in Guildpact.
The ending couldn't be more suspenseful.
Dissension, hurry up!
