* CharacterDeath
* CrapsackWorld

to:

* CharacterDeath
CharacterDeath - These can happen in the game.
* CrapsackWorldCrapsackWorld - Given that the name of the game is "Gloom" and the ''point'' of the game is to make tragedies happen to your own character's family, you're actually ''making'' it a crapsack world! ...For yourself, at least...

* UnwantedAssistance - Keith Baker's inspiration was to create a game he could play with his wife Ellen - most card games are based on the principle of [[PlayerVersusPlayer kicking your opponents around the block until you're the last one standing]], and Ellen was too nice to hurt a friend that way. Solution: A game where you win by helping your opponents' character and traumatise your own, faster than they can do the reverse!

The world of Gloom is a sad and benighted place. The sky is gray, the tea is cold, and a new tragedy lies around every corner. Each player assumes control of the fate of an eccentric, Victorian family of misfits and misanthropes, whose world-weary, thin-lined faces are caricatured from the pages of Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, and Mary Shelley. Each seeks to magnify the tribulations of the members of their own ailing household and ultimately lead them to the [[PeacefulInDeath well-deserved respite of an untimely death]], while [[HappilyEverAfter assuaging the sorrows of their deserving opponents]]. Storytelling is encouraged!
