After spending the weekend running a game of Symbaroum at Go Play Leeds and trying out Lestra/o as a playable character, it seemed that the Black Cloaks setup didn’t quite match the background. According to his/her background, she spent time leading Sun Knights in actions against abominations and yet I don’t get the feeling of a commanding leader from her current abilities.
At the same time, the player who took the Witch-hunter on the basis of an interesting character discovered Lestra/o occupied a back-office role in the adventuring party. Not so much the front line soldier, more the outside consultant or brooding HR manager. The character doesn’t come out well in combat when placed upfront, providing a more effective weapon as an advisor to the wider group.
With that in mind and the option to use this new setup in running The Promised Land, you will find both the Witch-hunter and the Barbarian Ranger, Komar/Koma, in the linked Symbaroum Pre-generated Character Sheet on Google Drive.
I have made subtle changes to the Witch-hunter’s Abilities that make the character better able to survive and serve a purpose in a command/support role. At the same time, Man-at-Arms means what armour the Black Cloak possesses she makes the most of for protection.
(Yes, the ranger is called Karla in the core book, but I opted for a change)
