Background Story

The magic mushroom Layla, who yearns for freedom, came across a group of four expeditions who had the spirit of adventure and hoped to travel around the dangerous Elazig magic continent.

In a conversation with them, the bold Layla agreed to their invitation to explore Thus began to experience a wonderful adventure journey with friends.

Character Introduction

Layla's prototype is fly agaric, also known as Amanita muscaria, a mushroom race with hallucinations and neurotoxicity. At the same time, she is also a rare and crispy but agile magic doctor who avoids full skill points.
