ABOUT CRIMSON SHROUD
CRIMSON SHROUD was created by game designer, Yasumi Matsuno, whose previous works include industry cornerstones such as Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, and Tactics Ogre. CRIMSON SHROUD is a brand new take on the table-top RPG where crucial decisions hinge on the roll of a die. As Giauque, a young “Chaser” who makes a profession of finding what is lost, players are drawn into the mystery of the Original Gift, the Crimson Shroud. Dice are rolled in real time, and the outcome of a battle will depend on the ability to chain skills together strategically in order to earn bonus dice of greater face value.
