Symbaroum : The Throne of Thorns
Symbaroum on Discord, Roll20
About the adventure
Explore the vast Forest of Davokar in the hunt for treasures, lost wisdoms and fame. Visit the barbarian clans to trade or to plunder their treasuries. Establish a base of power among princes, guilds or rebellious refugees in the capital city of Yndaros. Or survive encounters with Arch Trolls, dark-minded Blight Beasts and undead warlords. But whatever you do, never ignore the warnings spoken by the wardens of the forest: tread carefully and do not disturb the ruins of old, for the dark deep of Davokar is about to awaken. Symbaroum is a dark fantasy roleplaying game heavily inspired by scandinavian folklore. In this game you will be taking on the roles of adventurers, newly arriving in Ambria, hoping to make your fortune amongst the ruins of Davokar. Much like the gold rush, Davokar has attracted all kinds of fortune hunters, it's ruins picked over but holding dark and terrible secrets. We will begin right at the start of your adventures in an adventure designed to introduce you to the world of Symbaroum and also the mechanics of the game. In this first session you will be travelling across The Titans a mountain range at the very bottom of the map and arriving in the setting of the game, Ambria. Travel in Symbaroum however is never that easy and a shadow looms over your group of travellers, a dark secret that may threaten you all! This adventure will then lead us into the official Symbaroum campaign Throne of thorns. It's a dark and epic campaign that will take you all across the land of Ambria and deep into the depths of the forest of Davokar. Are you brave enough to step into the depths of this cursed forest?
How to prepare
If you would like to read up more on the world of Symbaroum i'd highly suggest it but this is not required. In order to play the game you will need microphones, a roll20 account, discord and if possible a webcam. A webcam is not needed to play but would be appreciated. You won't need your own dice as roll20 will automate most of the dice rolling for you. However if you perfer physical dice, a regular dice set d20, d12, d10s, d8, d6, d4 will cover you for the game. A notepad or some kind of journal is highly recomended as well so you can take notes.
What I provide
I will be using various soundtracks, maps and tokens to bring the world of Ambria and Davokar to life.
The mechanics of Symbaroum are fairly simple and easy to learn. A typical session will be a mix of roleplaying and combat as well as diving into the mysteries of the setting. There will be lots of room to explore, especially when we begin our journey into the forest of Davokar and while there will be combat, keep in mind that combat can be quite deadly in Symbaroum.
