^^This. In the 5e world, Ravenloft is in the Demiplane of Dread, which is a sub-plane of the Shadowfell. It states in several 5e sourcebooks that nothing should be taken literally and you shouldn't feel like you have to be pigeon-holed into what sourcebooks say - make it your world. Change it up. Add your own stuff. Anything is possible.

​

After the second sundering in the Forgotten Realms, many things changed and the Gods were not exactly sure how the cosmology was affected. Going along the same lines as Ravenloft - you could say that after the sundering new planes were created or discovered. Since Ravenloft is a demi-plane of the shadowfell, maybe Ravinica is a demi-plane of the Feywild? Or maybe a new plane of its own?

​

Also - not sure if you know, but there is actually a Ravinica sourcebook for D&D also - https://www.amazon.com/Dungeons-Dragons-Guildmasters-Guide-Ravnica/dp/0786966599

They just released a full campaign guide for Ravnica. And not some free small electronic pdf but a full hardcover D&D release for running games in Ravnica. New classes races items and lore. It was really well received.

It would be easier to do it with D&D 5e since there is an official Ravnica campaign guide out.

I think they already fused those cosmologies when they released the MTG DnD supplements. https://www.amazon.com/Dungeons-Dragons-Guildmasters-Guide-Ravnica/dp/0786966599

Don't forget the official "Guilds of Ravnica" D&D content

> Completely mucking up MTG's lore (and D&D's, I assume)...

You mean like this?

https://www.amazon.com/Dungeons-Dragons-Guildmasters-Guide-Ravnica/dp/0786966599/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=ravnica+D%26D&qid=1561995505&s=gateway&sr=8-1

Meanwhile, how would it "muck up" MtG's lore?

Having a plane that happened to also have iconic D&D stuff wouldn't effect the main MtG storyline any more than both games having dragons, goblins, elves, and so on. I don't think anyone's making the case that we start adaping Raveloft and Dragonlance to MtG sets...but there's be absolutely nothing wrong with a plane that happened to be populated by Beholders, Gelatinous Cubes, Mindflayers and so on.

D&D would be perfect to adapt, as it's not like it's disparate worlds are necessarily interconnected anyways, which is why you can have something like a Ravnica D&D set in the first place.

Seriously...if you're going to bring up an objection, immediately, to the "god I hope not" level, I'd really like to know what you're so afraid of.

I think, given the fact that the OP is translated into Portuges, there is a non-zero chance the intern doing the localization for this might have mistaken Wizards IP.

Ravnica and Eberron have a lot of similarities, a little Dark Sun too, we can hope for the best.

If not... honestly Ravnica is an awesome setting. A lot of people saying it's not as fleshed out as our now classic D&D settings is patently unfair. There are dozen book fantasy/sci-fi series' that aren't as fleshed out as D&D settings. They haven't had 2+ incarnations over 3 to 6 decades, with a body of work combining dozens, maybe hundreds, of authors and creators.

If you're a MtG fan, Ravnica is perfectly well fleshed out. It would definitely be a game of catch up, but it wouldn't be bad.

Edit: Never mind, looks legit
