The Iron Pact – Imagery

Pinterest boards are steeped with imagery that I associate with different aspects of Symbaroum; the civilised world, the depths of the great forest, the ruins beneath Davokar, and beyond.

  • Symbaroum: General imagery that either comes from the books or makes me think of the game’s landscape
  • Symbaroum – Dungenesis: The ruins of Symbaroum, now buried beneath the magical ‘scab’ of Davokar
  • Symbaroum – Changeling: Images of the Elven ‘spies’ seeded in families beyond the borders of Davokar
