Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Mushroom Kingdom Quest. In this adventure, you'll be thrust into thy wild world of the Mario games, where you'll go on incredible adventures from the welcoming gates of Toad Town to the dreary Wiggler Woods to the magma-streaked mountains of World 8.Before you can begin, though... what kind of Mushroom Kingdom denizen are you?(continued in next post...)
>>29195523>Koopa TroopaThese turtle people, once meaningless footsoldiers in Bowser's evil army, have carved a name for themselves in the good community, always welcome in both the lands of Bowser and Peach.As a Koopa, you get the ability to hide in your shell. You neglect all damage from outside sources, aside from liquids, gases or other things that can seep into your shell.>ToadAs a Toad, your presence is unquestioned in Peach's towns. You are a friend to all, but you have trouble fighting for yourself.As a Toad, you find it easy to get other toads on your side. You can also make use of any of Mario's power-ups, unlike the other species on this list.>Shy GuyShy Guys are odd creatures from foreign lands that do not form bonds with other species well. Shy Guys are more welcome in Bowser's lands than Peach's.As a Shy Guy, you have some knowledge of dark, tribal magic. You will gain spells as the quest continues. Also, Yoshis hate you.
>>29195638Fuck Yoshis!>Shy Guy
>>29195638Shy Guy or Koopa Troopa. I like the Koopas because turtles, and Shy Guys because masks.Do we get to pick what shell we are, Boo?
>>29195638Are X-naughts an option? Those guys were awesome.
>>29195673Shy Guys, Toads and Koopas will each get their own customization options.
>>29195676X-Nauts, as well as many other enemies and allies from the Mario series, will appear and have their place in this quest. (I'm a die-hard Mario fan.) However, Toads, Koopas and Shy Guys are the only options to play as.
>>29195638Voting for Koopa Troopa
>>29195671>>29195727>>29195736One vote for Shy Guys, two for Koopas.The first race to reach three votes will begin the adventure.
>>29195750Make that two for Shy Guys!
>>29195638I'd say Koopa Troopa.
>>29195757Koopa Troopa. I want to be the blue shell.
Rolled 63SHY GUY!!!!!!
>>29195638Koopa Troopa. gets my vote
>>29195776>>29195782>>29195727>>29195736Sorry to our Shy Guy supporters, but Koopa Troopa it is. Now, we can begin with the second stage of character creation.You begin with ten points to customize your character. Spend them wisely!>Green shell: FREE!You begin with a green shell, a symbol of low status. In Peach-aligned communities, this has no effect. But you will commonly be laughed at in Bowser's Castle and other communities of baddies.>Red shell: 2 pointsA red shell implies more status than a Green shell. It makes little difference in Peach and Toad communities, but Bowser's Castle will see you as a strong, smart member of society. The Red shell makes you more balanced, and gives you the ability to spin around in your shell.>Blue shell: 4 pointsThe Blue shell is a sign of pedigree. Bowser- and Baddie- aligned communities see you as a member of high society, someone strong and intelligent. It comes with the spinning combat benefit of the Red shell, but much faster.>Wings: 5 pointsIf you have a Green shell, you can flap your wings and jump high into the sky. If you have a Red or Blue shell, you can outright fly.>Companion: 3 pointsWhen your adventure begins, you have a trusty childhood friend with which to begin your adventure. Your companion can be a Bob-Omb, Goomba, Shy Guy or Koopa in Bowser cities, or a Toad, Luma or Shy Guy in Peach communities.>Choose Where to Start: 2 pointsYou can pick a place to start in the Mushroom Kingdom. The map will be revealed in the next post.>High Authority: 3 pointsIf you choose (or randomly get) Bowser's Castle as a starting place, you have a place of authority in Bowser's Army.
>>29196033>Blue shell: 4 points>Companion: 3 points; Shy Guy>High Authority: 3 points
Toads man,We going to be Mario disciples.
>>29196033>Red Shell>Wings>Companion: Luma
>>29196033>Blue shell because we gotta go fastThat's 4 points.>Companion (Shy Guy)That's 7 points.>Choose where to startThat's 9 points.
>>29196033My vote would be for Blue Shell, Companion (Shy guy), and Choose start.However, I don't know how many points we have or what else they can buy.
>>29196033Is there a Kopapatrol or Magic Kopa option?
>>29196103>>29196065Blue Shell, Shy Guy, and High Authority in Bowser's castle.The customization phase of character creation is complete. Now...>Name
>>29196033>Blue Shell>Companion: Shy Guy>Companion: Bob-Omb
>>29196164>>29196221KaBoopa Koopatrick the Blue-Shelled Koopa, with his friend and comrade in arms Sly Guy, are two commanders of Bowser's Baddie Corps, the forces determined to stop Mario at all costs. Little do they know, a much bigger adventure is about to begin!The aforementioned adventure starts on the next post.
>>29196164I like it!
>>29196270I know I was gonna change my vote, but QQ.
>>29196240>quotes my post>doesn't use my nameWhy?
Goddamn it, we could have gone double dragons with toads.You don't see toads do shit except for only like 3 toads in Mario history.That brave toad in Mario thousand door backstory and the blue and yellow toad in the 4 player Mario games.Oh yeah, the last toad, the red toad but that only in a dream so no fucks are given.
>>29196340Please great Boo. Give us this.
>>29196340Welp. That is pretty great
You are awoken by a loud rapping at your door, accompanied by cackling shouts from an all-too-familiar voice."Wake up, lazybones!" it shrieks, "His Gnarliness King Bowser wants to see you!""Kamek..." you mumble as you stumble out of bed onto the stone floor, rubbing your eyes. You slip into your green shoes, turn the knob and open the door. Standing outside is Kamek, scepter in hand and tapping his foot. Behind his glasses, you can see that he's getting impatient. Standing next to him is your good friend Sal "Sly" Guy, his mask's eyes droopy and tired."Finally! Come on now, His Crudeness is waiting!" Kamek jumps onto his broom, puttering forward down the hall. Sal gives you a look, one eyebrow raised.You only shrug in response.* * *You walk through the huge stone door of Bowser's office, and take a seat next to Kamek in one of the seats before his imposing onyx desk. He gives you a stare before roaring."Finally! Gosh, a king shouldn't have to wait so dang long for his underlings to show up! I ought to turn you into turn you into turtle jerky!"He goes on for a little while, sticking in the same vein of shouting before Kamek finally grabs his shoulder."Your, uh... Rudeness, don't you think that you should explain to the commanders why you've called them here?"Bowser nods, and sighs a little puff of smoke.(cont'd)
>>29196340(Fug... changed it. You are now Leonardo Koocaprio.)
>>29196520It is Mario.
>>29196440Bowser crosses his arms. "I'm sure you guys know that I've got a little thing for capturing Princess Peach, right?"You and Sal give him a polite nod."Well, I've tried it so many times, but I just can't seem to keep her down! I've captured her, and Mario saves her. I've captured Mario, and she saves him! Heck, I've even captured the entire dang KINGDOM and it wouldn't work!" his face is getting red, and licks of flame escape from his maw. "I've thought about it, and... you guys are two of my most trustworthy underlings. I want you to organize an expert plot to kidnap Peach and make her mine for good."Sal pipes up. "Wow, that's a lot of responsibility. I'll talk with Leo, and we'll be back to you tomorrow, ready and poised!"Bowser shakes his head. "No, no. I don't want to wait. Give me your awesome idea now."Sal looks at you with a frightened expression as he tries to think. Bowser and Kamek both raise eyebrows at you.>"What's your great idea, Leo?"
>>29196559We make a cupcake competition for the entire kingdom, and ask the Princess to judge it.>Princesses loves the cupcakeThen we princessnap her
>>29196559Well, you see your dastardly-ness, the reason we have problems is the rescuing. So if they didn't know that she needed rescuing, they wouldn't come. So, you need to make a copy of the Princess to put in her place when you capture her, so Mario will just keep doing his normal thing. Which is... fixing pipes or something?
>>29196520"Fuck. I got to-a stomp some mothafucking Goomba heads!" said Mario in no Mario game ever.
>>29196559We set her up on a blind date - with Wario! He's so repulsive, when you save her from that disastrous outing, you'll look like a knight in shining armor!
>>29196613Brilliant. Replace her with Doopliss and be on our way! Actually, he was kind of a tard, so perhaps a more obedient and less prone to showboating robot would suffice?
>>29196613Now, as it generally happens. the copy will inevitably make slip ups and such, so we can't have her around Mario too much. So while you waltz off with the real Peach, we kidnap the fake one and do the whole, "musical castles" thing with her every so often, and Mario will never catch on.
>>29196621...This makes sense.
http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26331531/This should give us some ideas.
>>29196613>>29196621These seem like, if not plans that'll actually work, things that'll be good enough for Bowser?
>>29196721No plan will work short of outright murdering the plumber, and even that probably isn't guaranteed to stop him from getting Star-revived or some other unfair bullshit. We're fucked no matter what.
>>29196665Fiendish, I love it.
>>29196621Sweat drips from your forehead as you struggle to think of an idea. After minutes of strenuous thinking, you manage to think something up. "We set her up on a blind date - with Wario! He's so repulsive, when you save her from that disastrous outing, you'll look like a knight in shining armor!"Bowser smiles at the idea. "That weird yellow guy I do go-karting with? Oh man, that's brilliant! But wait... what happens when Mario comes to get her?"Your smile fades and you bite you lip, stuttering, "Well, you see your dastardly-ness, the reason we have problems is the rescuing. So if they didn't know that she needed rescuing, they wouldn't come. So, you need to make a copy of the Princess to put in her place when you capture her, so Mario will just keep doing his normal thing. Which is... fixing pipes or something?"Bowser rubs his chin, trying to think of a flaw in your plan. Finally, he thrusts his shoulders up with a grin. "Well, Commander Koocaprio and Commander Sal Guy, congratulations. You have the entire Bowser Army at your disposal. Get on your plan, and quick! Before I, uh, pummel you!"Kamek waves his wand, and you and Sal are pushed out the office as the door shuts.>New objective: Find Wario>New objective: Create a fake Princess Peach>What do you do?Close areas:>Barracks>Mess Hall>Kamek's Lab>The Phone>Outside
>>29196846>Kamek's LabMaking a clone is going to be a pretty big feat, it's going to take a while. Better start now.
>>29196636I see Paper Mario two is going to be a thing here. How long until we start shipping Mario and Vivian?
>>29196846Kamek's Lab, gotta make a copy.
>>29196846>Barracks/the phone.We gotta find a Duplighost.
>>29196846>BarracksCheck if we have any Duplighosts on staff?
>>29196846>Mess HallWario might be there. Alright, so it's a long shot, but come on!
Should I mention that this exists, and that I made it? Because it seems pertinent.http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Super_Mario_RPG
>>29196846>Barracks>Mess HallFirst see if we can find a shapeshifter of some sort.
>>29196878Her crush was cute. Though I think she was female in the English version but transgendered in the Japanese version.
>>29197076You'd be correct. In Japanese (and other translations, notably Spanish), Vivian is specifically noted to be a male, even though she identifies as female. The English version dodges the subject by being wishy-washy but ultimately identifying her as female. It's on the inside what counts, after all.
>>29197076What do you mean "though"?I thought it was assumed that that was the primary reason we'd be shipping them?
>>29196846Let's look around for cardboard to make a cutout from. Mario will never notice!Or ask Bowser how he made those fakes in Super Mario 1. That could help.
>>29196878To be honest, I'm a little terrified and confused about how I'll implement the Paper Mario series here... I love the series, but I'm just not sure how it'll work.>>29196866You and Sal walk down the spiral staircase and through a door, into a moldy, dark room known as Kamek's Lab. The walls are lined with wands, brooms and scrolls, with tables and racks of glass bottles full of odd, brightly-colored liquids. In a drawer marked "DO NOT OPEN", you see the pink hem of a dress."Come on," says Sal, "there has to be something on making clones in here, I've seen Kamek do it before."You search through his books, and pick out a thin pamphlet of interest. Giving it a blow, the dust spreads around the room. "Cloning Made Easy", it reads. You pull it open and see a bright, happy-looking recipe, covered in pictures of smiling Magikoopa and Shy Guys around pots and bottles, with two identical Koopas shaking hands."So, you want to make a clone, eh? Well with Cloning Made Easy (TM), it's never been simpler. To create a clone, you will need four simple ingredients.-One Power Star-Some of the victim's DNA (a bit of hair or three fingernail clippings should do!)-A bunch of inert matter to form the body, such as a hundred pounds of oatmeal-Twenty coinsSal scratches his head. "This seems... a little demanding. Do you think we could find someone in the barracks who can change forms?">>29196952You take a walk up to the barracks. All around are minions of Bowser, sleeping, reading, watching TV and just messing around."Hey," you call, "are there any Duplighosts on staff?"A goomba raises an eyebrow. "Uhh, Duplighosts? Mr. Koocaprio, you should get your head checked. They're just one of those old Paper myths from the old stories.">>29197051(cont'd)
>>29197189I thought the primary reason we'd be shipping them was to distract Mario from going after Princess Peach. I really just figured it should be mentioned before she makes an appearance and surprises people.
>>29196846It seems the only way to insure the copy of the princess is going to be compitant is to go full bugs bunny and do it ourselves.>go try on dresses.
Enough talk of adorable transgendered shadow people, let's focus on the plan.Maybe we can make Wario think that if he gets hitched with Peach, he'll be King of the Mushroom Kingdom, and thus the Treasury will be his?
>>29197241"Well, is there ANYONE around here who can change forms?"Your question is almost immediately answered by a little goomba with a leaf upon his head. "I can!" he calls, waddling toward you. He reveals a tiny raccoon tail from behind his stubby legs, giving a toothy grin. "Name's Tanoomba! No doubt you've heard of the Tanooki suit, yeah? Well, folks like me can use the Tanooki's shapeshifting capabilities to our heart's content. Have you got a need for a shapeshifter?"
>>29197243Well, she's one of the Shadow Sirens (ostensibly) in service to the Shadow Queen in all those stories surrounding Rogueport. I'm not sure they'd be out and about doing anything.>>29197309Bitches are not one of Wario's priorities (though he won't say no to a kiss). If you want Wario to go through with this, you have to convince him it's a surefire way to get into the Mushroom Kingdom coffers.Plus, you gotta make sure Waluigi doesn't get all awkward or whatever he does.
>>29197346Let's see your Princess Peach impression, son.
>>29197241To be honest I assumed we WERE in the Paper Mario series.
>>29197346yep you gotta pretend to be princess peach, go around clogging toilets
>>29197403Nah, it's just one set of mythos among many. I wouldn't make it the focal point, but it's nice to have.
>>29197346"That depends, can you shapeshift into Princess Peach?"
>>29197309>>29197360My plan getting Wario here is have the Princess give away a Golden Cupcake,which she's holding on her person. Wario receives an anonymous tip....
>>29197241X-naughts are a rival (though significantly weakened compared to their heyday) villain organization in another country (the setting of Paper Mario 2)Kammy Koopa is Kopek's wifeMario's friends are doing whatever they did in the epilogue (more or less), though They'd probably come help him if asked.All the miraculously reformed villains are somewhat less reformed, but in semi retirement at this point.
>>29197384"Let's see your Princess Peach impression, son," you glare at the tiny goomba. A little uncomfortable, he coughs before giving you a nod."Yes sir!" he says as he swirls around in place, smoke surrounding him before in his place stands Princess Peach. You look up at "her", and she holds a gloved hand in front of her mouth."Hee hee! Oh, thank you, Mario!" she says, a perfect impression of herself, "I'll bake you that cake right away!"You're just about ready to applaud, when Sal points at the princess's rump. Taking a look, you can see the same raccoon tail. Tanoomba looks back, giving it a wag."Oh," he says, in his normal voice, "that's going to be a problem, isn't it?"
"Or... we could complete the set, and Mario might think she has one of those suits herself. I mean, with all the crazy stuff Mario comes across on all his princess-saving soirees, who WOULDN'T want to go and try some of it for themselves?"
>>29197441But then it not so much a "blind date" so much as it is Wario trying to extort Peach to get the "Golden Cupcake." Remember, the idea is that Bowser has to obviously be a better date than Wario AND that no one actually notices that the princess is missing.>>29197474Yeeeeeeaaaah. Good effort, though.That cloning recipe is looking mighty tempting right now. The oatmeal and coins are no problem, and Peach's DNA can be shanghai'd during the disastrous date with Wario. The Power Star, however, will be a little more work.
>>29197474*Nose bridge pinch* Well, this is the reason we were kidnapping her right? You're enlisted. I think we should see how the cloning spell works as a back up if "she" doesn't work out.
>>29197474Check around to see if Bowser has any of Peach's dresses lying around (dude totally does), then put on the dress and turn into Princess Peach.In theory the tail should then be under the dress?
>>29197522We just need Bowser to save her, that's the important thing. But I guess we could try to get him to think he could marry his way into money, maybe some story about Princess needing to sing to open the MK castle vaults.
>>29197522Why don't we just give bowser the clone peach and SAY everything went as planned?
>>29197441>>29197522Gosh darn it to heck- I see where this is going. We set up Peach with Wario, try to make him look bad, fail miserably, Peach and Wario end up falling in love for real, and trying to make Bowser look good fails and brings out Wario's noble traits.We can't just assume Wario will be disgusting enough on his own. We have to MAKE SURE Wario is absolutely unsuited for the date.
>>29197522"Yeeeeeeaaaah. Good effort, though," you tell "her", before turning to Sal."That cloning recipe is looking mighty tempting right now. The oatmeal and coins are no problem, and Peach's DNA can be shanghai'd during the disastrous date with Wario. The Power Star, however, will be a little more work."Sal nods back, but is still looking at Tanoomba. "Well, he might be useful. Maybe if we can't get a hold of Wario or something. You never rule out an ability like this.">>29197543In agreement to Sal, you turn back to Tanoomba. "You're enlisted. Now come with us.">New party member: Tanoomba!
>>29197605my god that's what we should do or mario
>>29197629>Peach and Wario end up falling in love for realHa! You actually entertain that idea seriously. Lookit what happened between Daisy and Waluigi, never mind that she's Luigi's girl.
>>29197443>X-naughts are a rival (though significantly weakened compared to their heyday) villain organization in another country (the setting of Paper Mario 2)Which we then take over and use to mount our rebellion against bowser
>>29197589You send Sal down to Kamek's Lab to grab his pink dress. He returns, holding it up in front of you with a little bit of disgust. "I don't know why the guy even has this."You wish you were as blissfully ignorant on the subject as Sal. You shudder, remembering the last time you walked in on Kamek wearing that thing.>New item: Kamek's Peach's Dress
>>29197638We are going to have to talk to Mario about this. He has an assload of starpower and princess peach DNA.Or maybe send in the raccoon dude, it's not wierd if Mario runs around with a tail. Too many ideas.
>>29197677I'd entertain the idea.Hell, I'd fall for Wario.
>>29197755>falling for WarioHA That's rich
>>29197749Sorry about the lack of clarity in my last postWe could talk to Mario about getting him to let us make a princess clone for bowser Or send in the raccoon as a fake Mario to go get the supply's to make the clone behind their backs
We should probably test the disguise first, actually. Pass our fake Peach onto some clueless underling and send him in before His Crudeness, see how long "she" keeps him foxed for. If he finds out, then it's the other guy who takes the fall for us, and if he doesn't and we have to break it to him, he'll at least have proof the plan will work. Hopefully.
>>29197755In WarioWare, Mona actually does have a crush on Wario.Also, if Captain Syrup, leader of the Brown/Black Sugar Pirates, can go toe-to-toe with Wario (she's a master inventor on top of a pirate and a charmer), you know she's legit.
>>29197817"So, what if we get Mario to let us make a clone of Peach for Bowser?" you ask Sal with a shrug.Sal puts his hands to his head. "What? That's crazy! Would you really go behind His Radness's back like that? Also, how do you think Mario would react to that?""It was just a thought, man. What if we sent in Tanoomba as a fake Mario to get the supplies for a clone behind Mario's back?"Sal puts his nubby hands to his hips. "That might work. But would we be giving the clone to Mario, or Bowser? If His Coolosity found out, we'd get fired! Like, actually set on fire!"
>>29197871With all due respect, Bowser is not hard to fool (when he's acting like comic relief). That said, we're not gonna send one of our boys to "take one for the team" like that.>>29197887The clone would go to Mario. If King B found out his own troops woop-de-woped him on getting him the princess, he'd pitch a fit. And by "pitch a fit," I mean RELEASE THE KRAKEN.
>>29197887>Sal puts his nubby hands to his hips. "That might work. But would we be giving the clone to Mario, or Bowser? If His Coolosity found out, we'd get fired! Like, actually set on fire!"We will cross that bridge when we get to it...just throwing this out there for a laugh..what if we made 2 clones and kept peach for ourselves?
>>29197874Mmm, syrup... (gross drooling sounds)>>29197871"Sal, let's just see if we could actually get away with it first."Sal reluctantly agrees, and follows you down the hall.* * *You stand at the door to Bowser's office, and Tanoomba switches into his Peach disguise. Putting the dress over him to hide the tail, you send him in."Oh Bowser, sweetie!" he calls as he runs through, his voice perfectly mimicking the princess's. As the door shuts behind him, his voice (and Bowser's) is muffled.After around thirty seconds, you can hear a loud, long shout and a blazing fire. Tanoomba walks out, his face ashy and his hair ablaze. The expression on his face is one of comically dumbfounded."IF I CATCH YOU SENDING ME ANOTHER FAKE PEACH, YOU'RE FIRED!"
>>29197971>idea 2.0We kidnap peach as per normal.Then have the clone in bowsers castle, Mario rescues cloneBowser gets real peach
>>29197971You're a madman. I'd commend your ambition if it didn't involve having to find TWO Power Stars.Or we could just hang out with/nab Daisy or something. THAT would throw people for a loop.
>>29198023Wait a minute.We get Daisy to dress up as Peach!
>>29198007Okay, that went better than it could have. One, we know the disguised Peach idea probably won't work, and two, we didn't get made into Koopa thermidor with a side of coconut cream. Question Tanoomba to see where he went wrong, but otherwise, put the whole disguised Peach idea on the backburner.
>>29198017"Okay," you mumble as 'Peach' dusts herself off, "hat if we kidnap Peach like normal, and then we'll put the CLONE in our castle, and then Mario rescues the CLONE!"Sal groans, looking just about ready to go home. "Leo, we need to get a definite plan, and go with it. I don't think Bowser wants to wait much longer, especially after what we just, uh, threw him.">"So what's the plan? Is Wario still involved? How will we keep Mario from coming?"
>>29198077We all know Daisy hates Peach to some degree.Or we can drug her.
>>29198077What if you got Daisy to help you catch Peach?
>>29198007Well, that answers that.>>29198120First, we need to get most of the pieces for the clone spell, i.e. everything but Peach's DNA. That'll come last when the date happens. Speaking of which, anonymous invitations need to be sent to both Peach (who would NEVER turn down a dinner date -- she's royalty, after all, and she's nothing if not polite) and Wario (convince him there's money at the end of the proverbial tunnel), as well as prepping Bowser for his "big save." Once Bowser makes favorable contact and her DNA is captured, make the clone, and promptly whisk the real Peach away while the clone is immediately left in her place. This transition must be super-quick and flawless and is arguably the most dangerous part. If all goes off well, Mario and Luigi will be none the wiser.
>>29198124>>29198133Daisy and Peach are legit BFFs, though. Plus, at the rate their relationships with the brothers are going, they may as well be sisters-in-law. You're not going to get her to turn on either Luigi or Peach.
>>29198180In other words, a "Daisy betrays Peach" plot will never happen.(Also, I get an excuse to post casual princesses.)
>>29198149Sounds like a combo plater of everything we have worked towards so far, I love it. In list form by order they need to get done:[ ] acquire super star[ ] send out letters to peach and wario[ ] gather mundane cloning ingredients [ ] princess DNA Then we are ready for phase 2
>>29198149"Alright, I've got it. First, we need to get twenty coins, a hundred pounds of oatmeal, and a power star. After that, we've got to let Peach know about the blind date. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. Then, convince Wario to go out with her. Of course, we have to find Wario. And when the date starts, we need to take the clone, put her in Peach's place in the palace, and have Bowser save the real Peach from Wario. That'll probably be the most dangerous part. If we're lucky, Mario and Luigi will be none the wiser."Sal expresses a growing understanding as you speak. He stands quietly for a moment, looks at Tanoomba, and then finally gives you a high-five. "Let's get to it then!">New objective: prepare Bowser for the date>New objective: collect Peach's DNA>New objective: find Wario and convince him to go on the date>New objective: get one hundred pounds of oatmeal>New objective: find one power star>New objective: get twenty coins
>>29198359We are a blue koopa damnitThis is green koopa work, get like 10 of them to go>New objective: get one hundred pounds of oatmeal>New objective: get twenty coinsWhile we>New objective: prepare Bowser for the date
Wait, hear me out:Bowser has been kidnapping peach a lot, yes? They go cart racing, play soccer, do tennis, play mario parties, heck- they may as well have spent super mario sunshine together on holiday.Shouldn't... do you think... do you think Bowser might have a lock of Princess Peaches Hair? We don't need the whole thing- just a couple of strands or something, but It might be worth it to look into it.
>>29198359I refuse to believe Bowser doesn't already have a lock of Peach's hair.
>>29198464That would be relatively creepy, but I wouldn't put it past him. See if he still has any "momentos" of the princess.For the war effort, you see.
>>29198464Shit, I guess it's worth it to ask.Or check the princesses former quarters in bowsers castle. She may have left some DNA there.
>>29198359Same anon:>>29198464Come to think of it, we've got this large list of demands, resources, etc...We should probably go and ask Kamek if he can help us: He holds almost if not just as much administrative power as Bowser, he's more calm and level headed, and as long as we calmly word our requests we might actually get a pretty good head start on all this.I mean, we're all in this together, may as well discreetly ask if Kamek knows if Bowser has any Princess peach hair. I'm sure he'll be on our side as long as we rationally explain our plan out.
>>29198459"I'm a Blue Koopa! This is underling work!" You shake your fist and storm down the hall into the barracks."Ten Green koopas, front and center!" you shout. In a moment, ten green-shelled koopa troops line up in front of you. You point at them, and with a stern glare, bark your orders. "Commander Guy and I are on an elite, covert mission to kidnap Princess Peach herself! To serve His Crassitude, you must bring us the following: one hundred pounds of oatmeal, and twenty coins!"The green troops look at you, confused."THAT'S AN ORDER!" you shout, and they scatter off.>>29198464>>29198470>>29198531You head back into Bowser's office.He gives you a glare. "What do you want now?""Well, Your Badness, Commander Guy and I were planning on making a clone of the Princess to keep Mario and Luigi busy, and the recipe calls for a lock of Peach's hair. You wouldn't happen to have any, would you?"Bowser's eyes dart from side to side. "Uhh, of course I don't. That'd be weird."Sal continues staring at him, arms crossed.Bowser sighs, and begins picking through his wallet. He pulls out a small bag of blonde hair, and flicks it to Sal. "Don't tell anyone about that, or I'll burn you medium rare!"
>>29198698>Bowser sighs, and begins picking through his walletI just imagine Bowser keeping a wallet with his own Face on it and it makes me laugh audibly.>He pulls out a small bag of blonde hair, and flicks it to Sal.We should make a mental note to not use the "whole" bag of hair and give whats left back to bowser when we're done. It obviously means a lot to him.
Ask Kamek where we can find a Power Star. Last I heard, they were in Peach's Castle, but it can't hurt to ask.
>>29198698I guess we kinda don't have to set up the peach/wario date anymore huh? I still want to because it sounds fun..but we got the DNA..
>>29198787Can we go to Star Hill and wish for one? Does it even like, work like that?
>>29198787You turn to face Kamek, who's still in Bowser's office."Kamek," you ask, "where exactly can we find a Power Star?"Kamek taps his chin for a second in thought. "The closest place would be Peach's Castle. Though if you're willing to go out of your way, there's an observatory I've heard about that stores them. Oh, and on Yoshi Island, there's a place called the Star Road, which is practically made of stars."You thank Kamek, walking out of the office."Alright," you say off-handedly to Sal, "now all we need to do is find Wario."
Check Bowser's Vault. He could be trying to purloin its contents at this very moment! If not that, then read the newspaper for any fabulous jewels that have been discovered and are conveniently being shown off in a museum. Wario's greed is legendary, after all.
I wish we could have been like Mario's son in the distant future and the Mushroom Kingdom was in shambles cause Bowser has been reigning and destroying and we have to rise up in a world where powerups are scarce and invent our own mushrooms with some shy guy smugglers. and we get a gun
>>29199016and we get to throw a fireball from space
>>29199012>Check Bowser's Vault.>Wario's greed is legendary, after all.Wario is also a master-gosh-dang-thief.That's a terrible idea, why would we ever put Bowser's Family Jewels in danger like that?
>>29199102We really wouldn't be putting it in danger more so than it already is. We're not specifically luring him there; just going to see if he's there by happenstance.
>>29199016This is only the first arc, son.>>29199012You go to the mess hall and pick up a newspaper. Flipping through the pages, you find nothing of interest, until a particular article makes you grin."The Emerald Shroom," you read, "is a colossal, shining green jewel that mysteriously grew into the shape of a mushroom. The gem is currently being moved into the Mushroom Kingdom Museum, where it will be put on display for all the people of the kingdom to see its glory."Sal's mask is forming a smile just as yours. "Are you thinkin' what I'm thinkin'?" he asks. You respond with a not and a high five."Let's go find us a fat dude!"TO BE CONTINUED IN THE NEXT CHAPTER OF MUSHROOM KINGDOM QUEST!I hope you enjoyed! Sorry I have to leave so early, I'm attending a party in a minute. Thanks for taking part in the first part my quest, you guys are the best!
>>29199129It was fun! Thanks for running.
By the way, guys, I just discovered that Mushroom Kingdom Quest was the very first thread to be archived in 2014. Ain't that something?Anyway, you can find it on suptg, I could use votes, thanks!http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html
A reminder that for those looking to get their Mario fix on the tabletop, I have a stupifyingly simple homebrew system just for you.http://1d4chan.org/wiki/Super_Mario_RPG
>>29199260I'm looking through this, and it's the real deal, folks. Try this system out.
So it ends just as I finish reading everything. Great. When's next session?
>>29199500I'll try and do it on Wednesday.
>>29199521Thanks for running, this quest looks like it'll be really fun!
