Welcome to Pavis & Big Rubble, available at last in one combined volume.

Wildday/Fire Season/1621:
Two parties entered the Rubble today. Half of the Pavis party returned, screaming of Broos adrip with fungus and vile disease. No sign of the Orlanthi fighters, though we saw smoke curling from the Mint for most of the morning. We spotted gargoyles scouting overhead; otherwise it was peaceful.

Report from the Commander of the People's Gate, Pavis.

Pavis was once a great city; this might be true, for Pavis stands beside the Rubble - old ruins filled with loathsome trolls. The new town Dorasar founded is a cesspool of adventurers and profiteers; decent folk can hardly afford a meal or a room. Lunar taxmen are everywhere, while the Lunar patrols vanish at the first sign of trouble. I have twice been assaulted by mobs of young thieves. No rain has fallen in more than two seasons. Only oilseeds are possible exports. Terrible desert separates me from civilization; at least in the Wastes I will encounter the purity which engenders peace of mind. Letter from a Kralori trader.

Pavis: Threshold to Danger is brought alive through neighborhood maps, indexed for services adventurers need - armorers, temples, and so on, plus all of the city's politico-religious groupings and prominent personalities.

The background information features chronologies, historical essays, maps, and the cults of: Flintnail, Lanbril, Black Fang, Pavis, Zola Fel, and the never before published Sun Dragon cult. Last is the legendary epic Cradle scenario, encompassing the glorious struggle of saving the first giant cradle to appear on the River Cradles in over 700 years.

Big Rubble: The Deadly City is the perfect hunting ground for adventurers. Exploration parties may venture forth into the Rubble to salvage or plunder the treasures and magics in its ruins, all under the watchful eye of the occupying Lunar Empire. The Big Rubble is a vast area enclosed by giant-built walls of stone. Once it was the site of Robcradle, an ancient Jrusteli city, it became the magnificent capital of the hero Pavis. Only thousands of acres of ruin and destruction now remain, full of robbers, outcasts, and inhuman monsters.

The nine scenarios include the insidious "Devil's Playground," and the mysterious and deadly "Puzzle Canal."
