Symbaroum: Playing with Goblins


Under the darker boughs of Davokar, the goblins play their cruel games against any who dare. The goblins play for fun and pain, for grimaces and wicked laughs, but also for a more sombre purpose. Winners will earn riches while losers will pay a bloody tribute. Dare you enter the games?

While Playing with Goblins starts off more lighthearted and humorous than the typical Symbaroum fare, the adventure will get quite darker very quickly. It is the perfect story to invite your friends over for a beer and pretzels night of gaming that will suddenly go sideways... 

The 37 page adventure includes:

  • 3 fully detailed adventure landscapes: the Goblin Village, the Hollow Tree and The Hunt!
  • Stats and descriptions for over a dozen goblin characters and tips on how to roleplay them.
  • 3 crazy goblin games for the player characters to participate in.
  • The saddest troll you've ever met.
  • A terrifying hunt with a dedicated set of random terrain and events to run it.
  • GM's maps of the Goblin Village and The Hunt!
  • Player's maps of the Goblin Village and The Hunt!
  • A battlemap of The Hollow Tree
  • A new Artefact
  • A convenient layout using two page spreads and boxed text for ease of play.

Playing with Goblins can be run as a standalone adventure, or used with the upcoming Mysteries of the East Marshes to form a mini-campaign.

Great work here ! I can't wait to run these games with my players. The adventure is very well written, and full of ideas and details to add a little spice, grit, and liveliness to your goblin tribes all around Davokar - with an agreable pinch of humour !

Bryce Blunt Toronto over on the Symbaroum (English) Facebook group posted an excellent session report of Playing with Goblins. He adapted the adventure for his group and made something quite awesome for his players! Quite a fun read that you will find here: (Players please abstain, it's full of spoilers.)

You will need to join the group and scroll down a bit to my post, but I recommend it nonetheless, and its a great group for Symbaroum fans as well as people curious to learn about the game.

Hello Jericho, Thanks for a fun, healthy, violent session in the country! Your module is very well written, full of fun details and useful tips and surprises. I recommend the Goblin Games to any party, providing they don't mind cheating, dirty-playing, foul-mouthed (and probably doped) opponents... *****

Rule System(s)
Original electronic
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.
