The adventure is the fifth in The Chronicle of the Throne of Thorns campaign and is set to launch later this year. Each adventure in the campaign can be played stand-alone or interlinked, depending on the players choice, as they are all part of the same epic saga.

Alberetor – The Haunted Waste also includes support for players to create their own adventures in the lost lands of the south and in a war-torn Ambria.

The new adventure will be priced at ($39.99) and is now available for preorder in the Free League webshop – alone, or in a discounted bundle. Pre-order grants you a BETA PDF of Alberetor – The Haunted Waste as soon as it is ready (late Q2 2021) and also a preorder exclusive digital artbook that will not be made available to any others.

About Symbaroum

Symbaroum is an acclaimed dark fantasy roleplaying game where you explore the vast Forest of Davokar in the hunt for treasures, lost wisdoms and fame. But whatever you do, never ignore the warnings spoken by the wardens of the forest: tread carefully and do not disturb the ruins of old, for the dark deep of Davokar is about to awaken.

Symbaroum Review Quotes

"Symbaroum is a dark fantasy set in a deep and dark forest chock full of ancient ruins and treasures. Its landscapes are haunted, its characters traumatized, and its monsters are pure, unbridled nightmare fuel. (-) Also the art by itself is enough to haunt your dreams"
~ Sara Elsam, Dicebreaker, 10 best fantasy RPGs that aren’t Dungeons & Dragons

"The game that has inspired me most this year."
~ John Dodd, Tabletop Gaming magazine

"All in all, this is a stunning piece of work. It has all the sophistication of 13th Age, the mechanical beauty of Dungeon World, and the dark attractiveness of Warhammer Fantasy in a comprehensive and elegant game."
~ Rodney Orpheus, Medium
