Threshold to Danger

An Episodic Campaign: History, People, Adventure

Exploits along the River of Cradles

PAVIS is the first city base intended exclusively for RuneQuest players. Its neighborhood maps are indexed for the services adventurers need - armorers, temples, and so on. Gimpy's, an excellent inn, is fully described, as a city politico-religious groupings and prominent personalities.

Pavis Book Covers

Background includes a chronology, historical essays, maps, and the cults of Flintnail, Lanbril, Zola Fel, and Pavis. There is an elaborate plan and description of the downriver Sun Dome temple complex. New Pavis is described neighborhood by neighborhood, and street by street, with a wealth of information on shops, taverns, training centers, temples, and camps. 

Of the three scenarios, Welcome to the City situates the characters and introduces Lunar officialdom; this multi-session scenario is matched by The Cradle, another multi-session adventure about the first giant cradle to appear in 700 years: characters battle mass-magics to try to stop or to help the cradle on its way - a glorious struggle which will be sung of for a hundred years. Raus House Robbery is a more compact adventures offering a play range from 2-3 hours to perhaps two evenings. Encounters, full stats, and dozens of scenario hooks help gamemasters create many more adventures. 

The book also includes designer's notes, a retrospective epilogue, and a detailed index. The PDF is fully bookmarked, with a fully hyperlinked Table of Contents and Index.

Format

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.
