Approximate time to read: 2 minutes.
I can see a fair few sessions of Symbaroum coming up over the next several months, with various conventions and demo games. I’m confirmed to run Symbaroum at Concrete Cow 16 in March, UK Games Expo in June, possible at Seven Hills in April and in my current home gaming club.
Some kit seemed in order…
That’s the whole kit for the time being (minus the Davokar map I posted earlier in the month). Clockwise, we have:
- laminated reference sheets,
- dark brown folding Dice Tray from All Rolled Up with
- Adventures in the East Mark dice
- reference cards for Abilities (which I hope to complete a whole set of soon and post as a downloadable PDF),
- laminated half-wdth A4 pre-generated character sheets
- my Symbaroum hardcover rule book
- customised Davokar map All Rolled Up dice bag
- dry wipe Thistle Hold map (from Big Art and Banners, per my earlier post)
The All Rolled Up game roll holds my dice, the reference cards in plastic card box, Staedtler dry wipe pens, dry wipe cards for taking notes or keeping track of Toughness in combat and a few counters (not shown) for keeping track of quick moving targets in battles or on the dry wipe maps.
I realise the dice aren’t based on this game, but they have a cool and clear design. Q Workshop can, on occasion, let the design overtake the dice, but these look really good and the numerals all read clearly. I realise I don’t get to roll too many dice when I’m running Symbaroum, but it doesn’t mean I can’t have them on the table looking pretty.
To be clear, the dice bag is not official. My wife makes the All Rolled Up game roll / dice bag accessory (for almost three years now) and she surprised me with this as a gift! The Davokar map on the outside has been printed on fabric and fixed / sewn as a panel on the outside. I’d commented earlier in the week that I thought the fabric would suit Symbaroum because of the Elves and their tie to the seasons – here with brown (winter), red (autumn), dark green (summer) and light green (spring). I think it came out really well.
I really look forward to running games in the world of Symbaroum at events later this year – and hope that all this GM bling will draw some much-deserved attention.
