Odd Clog - Please Help

Hello All, I have an issue that in my head makes sense but I need to bounce it off other people who probably have more experience.

My upstairs master bath has a separate tub and shower and a toilet in it. Also on the 2nd floor is a 2nd full bath with just a tub/shower and a toilet in it. The 2nd bath drains fine with no issues. Also the bathtub in the master bath seems to drain fine as well, but the toilet and the shower in the master bath seem to be connected in some way as both are stopped up.

I've used drano with no luck and when I used a plunger in the toilet nothing really happened except some particles came out of the shower drain. Then when I tried plunging the shower the only thing that happened is a ton of dirt/sewage come out of the drain and wouldn't go back down.

Eventually dirt and grime stopped coming out but it wouldn't go back down. Anytime I plunge the shower now, I just hear gurgles out of the toilet and vice versa.

My thoughts now are to buy a 2nd plunger and plunge both simultaneously or possibly rent a snake. Any ideas or thoughts of what could be going on?

The main 3" drain for that bath is plugged up after the shower and toilet fittings--

Best shot is to remove the toilet and snake from that opening---
