'Shroom and Gloom' was summoned into reality for the edition of Day FPS as a part of the Free Lives expedition to Swellendam.Our goal was to make an first person CCG that allowed for creative deck-building and mega-combos.

The Crossbell State

Bordered by the Erebonian Empire to the west and the Calvard Republic to the east, this prosperous state was once in crisis due to the actions of a fanatical religious group.

Tensions erupted in a mafia war, with security forces being manipulated by the mysterious narcotic, Gnosis. Peace was eventualy restored through the efforts of the Crossbell Police Department's Special Support Section. The Imperial and Republican officials associated with the Order and the mafia were driven away, and with a new mayor in place, it appeared that the future of Crossbell was bright; however, this was only a temporary respite on the turbulent Zemurian continent.

Pressure from the Erebonian Empire and the Calvard Republic is steadily increasing, and signs of yet another upheaval are imminent

among Red Constellation, the most powerful jaeger corps in the world, Heiyue from the Eastern Quarter, and Ouroboros, a mysterious organization that operates from the shadows.

All paths lead to Crossbell, and countless unsolved mysteries going back to ancient times are about to be revealed at last.

This is a story about living in modern timesa gift to all those who fight to overcome the walls that bind them.
