Legacy of Ghost Fort


Erol of Backford

according to the listings and timeline on Soltakss' website, it was an adventure in the P&BR Companion vol. 3, and is listed as a "chaos-bashing" scenario, one of the common categories in his created schema of a collected praxian campaign drawing from materials both official and not

I'd suggest asking @Ian A. Thomson for more info and if it will be republished. It was in Legacy of Pavis

Here's @AndreJarosch's blurb on it from the Chaos Society website (machine translated):

The beige cover already indicates the dreary environment and the old age of Pavis. The interplay of two drawing styles characterises this picture.

Is there more to know about Pavis, to convert even more game material from RQ to Hero Wars, even more implied adventure ideas that need to be processed into episodes here?

But yes!

In "Worshipping Pavis", the cult of Pavis from "Pavis & Big Rubble" is converted to Hero Wars and gets more depth through subcults.

"The Flintnail Dwarves" does its own with the organisation of the Mostali, who follow Flintnail.

The nobles in AltPavis, today's Big Rubble, or part of it, are described: "The Noble Families of Manside"

13 hero groups and organisations in the Big Rubble are listed, including the gang of Griselda and Wolfhead.

This is followed by scenario ideas, NPCs and narrator characters, objects, minor clues and location descriptions (including maps). Too many small articles to list all here by name or content.

"The New Pavis Knowledge Temple" shows the internal confusion in the local Lhankor Mhy Temple. Anyone who believes in the temple of Jonstadt will go a lot under it, should not even play with the idea of going to the Pavis Temple.

"Kakstan"'s Art Museum", a scenario that was already announced in 1978 (and that, if it had appeared at that time, would probably be completely different). An adventure in the Big Rubble!

An article about Lunar Agents in Pavis, a subsequent map for "Masks of Pavis" and a mini comic conclude the booklet.

A lot of material that sometimes threatens to kill you (also in the layout). A more generous layout would certainly have done the book good, but then probably not all the information would have fit in and there would have been one more booklet (except for the already announced "Shadows of Pavis").

Pavis is one of the most detailed cities in the role-playing world. This may be a little too much of honour for a city on the verge of nothingness, surrounded by unimportant nomadic peoples, but Pavis is wrong if you think it has become obsolete as a game background after the cessation of RuneQuest, in the age of Hero Wars role-playing game. Far too many details have not yet been described in the older supplements, so much RQ information has not yet been converted to Hero Wars.

I think it was the most epic of all the Rubble locations I ever wrote. A real complex complex.

And absolutely it will be in the new series

Wedding of Pavis will also be extensively rewritten

(I am currently engaged in the very last editorial write-through of Vol 01. It will definitely be complete within the next 3 days, and ready for publication.)

It would be great if some of these "lost and ancient documents of Glorantha lore" could be rebooted into the Jonstown Compendium.  I hope that anyone who is in contact with Ian Thomson suggests it to him, and other people who have similar out of print things from way back too.
