Symbaroum Starter Set - Treasure Hunts in Davokar


The Ashurani dynasty was as short lived as it was cruel, known for its insights into the light – and the darkness. Key to their power was an artefact known as the Rod of Light and Darkness. Its touch could breathe life into dead things, or steal it away from that which lived. And guess what, the rod’s current whereabouts has been revealed! To students of the Eternal Night, this opportunity cannot be ignored! Its final resting place is said to be Lafarda’s Tower, situated in the area known to treasure-hunters as the Blasted Heath, where lightning rain burns flesh and shatters dreams.

Enter the wondrous world of Symbaroum! This starter set for the Symbaroum roleplaying game is designed to let you and your friends experience treasure hunts and expeditions in the dark and mysterious forest of Davokar, including two ready-made adventure sites for you to explore. It also contains guidelines for creating your own treasure hunt adventures. Of course, our hope is that your initial excursions into Davokar will leave you curious to know more about the game world – its forests, cultures and its long, dark history.



  • 64-page rule book, introducing the game’s easy-to-learn and highly flexible ruleset along with its dark and mysterious game world.
  • 64-page adventure compendium, including two original adventure locations for your players to explore and rules for designing adventures of your own.
  • Six character sheets, describing five readymade player characters and one mystical companion for you to play.

How long would you play this or is their stuff to make a game like this longterm ?

It includes two ready made adventure sites, each of which should take about 8-10 hours to play. But then here are tables and other recourses for creating/spawning your own sites and treasure hunt adventures, so you should be able to get quite a few hours out of this box - also when it comes to "leveling up" the player characters a bit.

Would it be possible to get a preview of something other than pre-generated character sheets?

Oooops! Haha, that's what you get for uploading multiple files into a single product. :-)

We will reach out to DriveThruRPG and see if they can make sure that the preview is from the Rule Book. Hopefully they can fix the issue before long.

Thanks for pointing it out.

If you go to the publishing tab on DTRPG and then select "change preview" on the title, you can select which file it uses for the preview

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.
