>Follow the official Mushroom Kingdom Quest twitter!twitter.com/BroqueMonsieur1>Previous threads:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Mushroom+Kingdom+Quest>Where we left off:Tanoomba, Rob-Omb and the magnificent Spectro have rallied as an alliance against Darryl Bones, and plan a mutiny soon. Leo, Sal Lily and their new friend Jimbo, in the meantime, astoundingly took down the abominable Wario and then took off to Cackletta and Fawful's laboratory in the Beanbean Kingdom.+ + +As you grip the rusty door handle, your heart fills with unease. A tiny part of your mind screams, begging you not to open it. Sal, Lily and Jimbo O'Malley stand behind you, all staring at the rotten wood door.You turn the handle.>Open it>Don't open it
>>29884057Jimbo, start a drum roll cause I'm opening this door!
Rolled 13>>29884057NO!!! NO, BAD EVIL ROOM, NOOOO!!!!
>>29884100>>29884145You swallow your doubt and push open the door. Immediately, a thick odor of mold and decay fills your nostrils. The walls here seem to be even more ancient, and the floors are damp.You shine your flashlight inside, and you can see the walls covered in fungus and vines. In the corner is a pile of hay. You spot a nearly-rotten desk on the side of the room. On the wall farthest from the door is a large oaken chest.>Look on the desk>Look in the chest>Get outta there!>(Other)
>>29884233>>Look in the chestDa da da daaaaa~
>>29884233>Open the chestWe've gotta prioritize possible treasure.
>>29884233Check the pile of hay first.Also don't forget to examine the ceiling and behind the door.
>>29884256>>29884334You slowly move toward the chest, shining your light on the floor to check for traps. Once at the chest, you notice that the wood has almost completely rotted through. Though it's locked, the lock snaps off with ease. You lift it up, and inside you see... blocks?Yellow blocks with question marks, just like the ones floating in the air. The sides of the chest are coated with a sticky, shiny substance.>Investigate further (Blocks)>Investigate further (Substance)>Check out the desk>(Other)
>>29884444>>Investigate further (Substance)Lick it.
>>29884444Investigate the blocks. By punching them.Also nice quad-4's.
>>29884503You stick your finger on the side of the chest and wipe off a dab of the substance. With a bit of hesitance, you lick your finger. The substance is tasteless and textureless, but it feels unnaturally heavy in your mouth.>>29884519You punch one of the blocks. Its side gives out with little resistance, and it makes a low oozing sound as it falls apart. Its falling sides release more of the colorless goo.You shine your flashlight on the dissolving block and see that one side seems to have a little stump on it, with what look like three stubby fingers. On another is a pair of tiny, closed eyes."Oh my... that's horrible!" Lily puts her hands in front of her mouth, sounding as if she's going to vomit.>Check out the desk>Take a block>Leave>(Other)
>>29884636Oh God we ate Blueford? >Take a block
>>29884636Grab a block of hard evidence.
>>29884636See what horrifying secrets the desk holds.
>>29884693(What? Oh god no, that's not Blueford. Blueford's, uh... "safe".)>>29884717You reluctantly grab one of the blocks. Sal shines a light on it, and as you spin it around it drips the colorless goo. It has one eye on its front, three tiny legs on the bottom, and its question mark seems to be half-dissolved. The block doesn't seem to be breathing.>>29884761You go to the desk and set the block down. On the desk is a pile of disorganized, browned paper. The bulk of them seem to be laboratory reports, with sketched diagrams of the Mask, drawings of blocks, and scribbled sentences on the side.Lily's hand shakes as she extends it toward one particular piece of paper. She points at it, her eyes wide with horror. You shine your light on it, and your flashlight falls from your hand.Underneath a sketch of the mask is a perfect representation of Broque Monsieur.>Take the papers>Run>RUN>(Other)
>>29884883Take the papers.What? This is a perfectly ordinary abandoned mad-research shack. What would be the odds of anyone visiting now?
>>29884923You reluctantly gather the yellowed papers into a stack and hand them to Sal. "Kamek could probably make sense of all this."Sal groans. "I think we already know what's happening here."The four of you file out of the shack and back to the airship. You place the slimy... block... thing on a seat next to you. Jimbo shows you Fawful's notebook. He suggests that it might contain valuable information.>"Alright, let's go.">"Wait... let's stay a little longer."
Rolled 19>>29885074Go, go, GO!
>>29885074There's got to be a secret cellar filled with even more terrible research. Check it again.
>>29885074>"Wait... let's stay a little longer.">There was that other room we didn't check out and I'd personally rather get this place done than have to come back because we missed something.
>>29885138"Get us out of here, Gil. This place is giving me the creeps." you say, gesturing to the sky. The giddy Goomba gives you a grinning nod and takes off. Harrison mutters something like "finally" as he stares off the side of the ship.Lily sits next to you. "So I guess this means we have to go see Broque Monsieur again...""Oh come on, he isn't that bad. Now we know he's just the result of horrible experiments with an ancient artifact of evil!" says Sal, leaning into you and Lily's seats. With a push, Lily knocks him over.+ + +You wake up with a start to a pounding at the Terrace door. You swiftly grab your little Luma and hide him away. The pounding gets louder and quicker."Open up, Tanoomba!" comes the voice of John-Omb.>Open it>Stay inside>(Other)
>>29885159>>29885177(Sorry for not following the majority vote this time, I was already writing and forgot to refresh...)
>>29885314>"No. Do you have any idea how early it is? Well, it's hard to tell considering we're in space, but I'm not getting up yet!"
>>29885314>"There had better be a VERY good reason for waking me up, John... I am not a morning Tanoomba."
>>29885351>>29885383"No!" you shout. "There'd better be a VERY good reason for waking me up, John! I am not a morning Tanoomba."The door begins to splinter."S-seriously!" you stutter. "Do you have any idea how early it is? I'm not getting up yet!"The door cracks, sending pieces of wood through the room. John-Omb is looking ragged, the metal tears all over his body wider and longer. One of his eyes is missing, giving you a view of his hollow gunmetal insides.John and four of the commune all charge into the dome and surround you."What are you DOING?" you shout."Giving you your just desserts, traitor," he growls. "Grab him!"He and all four of the Bob-Ombs swarm you, and they hold you down. As you kick and resist, they haul you outside to the green field below. They toss you through the air and you land on your side, making the little Luma squeak. Two more grab you and hold you down.On one side of you, Spectro looks like a shining orb. He's covered in some kind of glowing tape. On the other side is Rob. He looks straight forward, his face one of indifference. The cracks in his body are wider than when you last saw them, and they all radiate gleaming light.Your stomach flops when you look ahead of you. There stands Darryl Bones, his hands behind his back and his eyes locked right on you."So..." he mutters in his gurgling, gravelly voice, "who tossed out this little 'mutiny' idea?">"I d-don't know!">"It was me!">"Let me go, Darryl. We're taking this ship out of your control!">(Other)
>>29885649That regal bob-bomb! Ever since he snorted Rosadust he's been a different person. Saying stuff like only he is worthy of ruling!
>>29885649"I don't know, was it the ridiculously powerful shapeshifter?"Turn into something that could fill even Darryl Bones with fear.
>>29885649>"Uh, must have been you, just now, because I've never heard any of that!"
>>29885886What if we turn into a Puni and scamper away?
>>29885787"It was HIM!" you cry, gesturing to Rob. "Ever since he snorted Rosadust, he's been a different person... like only HE was worthy of ruling!"Darryl stands in silence for just a moment, and laughs. He shakes his head as he slowly stalks across the field to Rob. He grips Rob by the cap and holds him in his steel claw. Rob struggles to escape."I knew you were a cheat, Tanoomba, but I never thought you'd lie. So... you got what you wanted, right? Someone to take the fall for you? What do you think is going to happen to him now? Maybe he'll get a slap on the wrist and set free?""Darryl, that's not what I wanted to---""Then what did you want?" he snarls. "A fight? Because I'll gladly give you that.">"Yeah! Right here, right now! And no using the commune!">"No... Darryl, please just let us go. We'll do whatever you want!">(Other)
>>29885962>"ROB, EXPLODE, NOW!"
>>29885962Note: I just want to let you know that if you take this fight, it's not going to be a bullshit "Darryl wins no matter what" fight like with DK and Blueford. If you choose this, you roll. And you just might win.But you could lose.
>>29885962>>"Yeah! Right here, right now! And no using the commune!"Hopefully he doesn't spam necrolasers at us while we're pinned down because I'm hoping to run away when the bombs let go.
>>29886005That's an idea.
>>29886005I support this.
>>29886005Sure, do this.And then we fight him.
>>29886023I just gotta ask, since we won (lost) those fights by a few HP: If we had won harder, would things have turned out differently? Like, the toads not being turned into experiment and organ donor?
>>29886005"ROB, EXPLODE, NOW!" you shout. Rob continues struggling against Darryl's grip, and doesn't hear you.>>29886026"Yeah, let's fight! Right here, right now! And no using the commune!" you shout through gritted teeth.Darryl snaps his claw in rapid succession with a grin. "Always the optimist, aren't you? Bombs, untie the ghost."As the Bob-Ombs unwrap Spectro, Darryl tosses Rob-Omb on the ground next to you."Why are you even still HERE, Darryl? You've already destroyed Yoshi's Island, what more could you want?"Darryl puts his hand to his face with a laugh. "I forgot to tell you, didn't I? Oh man, I thought you and Spectro would really get a kick out o THIS." he points at the highest spire of the Observatory. You can see members of the commune covering it with salvaged steel and wires. Your eyes widen in horror when you see three of them strapping the Entropy Blaster to the top."You see, Tanoomba... while Yoshi's Island is nice, what I REALLY want... is the world. And I did some calculations. In just four hours and sixteen minutes, the Observatory will be pointed right at the Mushroom Kingdom. And if I use all the Star Power in the Core, you and Mario and Luigi will have a front row seat to the death of your entire planet!"Darryl tosses his head back and holds his arms up in the air. When he finishes, he holds a fist at his side and opens his claw as wide as it goes."Want to be a hero, old friend? Show me.">ENTER COMBAT>"No, Darryl... I want to join you.">(Other)
>>29886138If you guys had won against Darryl as DK...Tanoomba's plot would have nowhere to go and he probably would've met back up with Leo and Sal.If you had won as Blueford...what's about to happen would've happened four episodes ago.
Rolled 3>>29886284"No, but you know something? This isn't a space station, it's a space SHIP. And what do those have? Controls!" Run to the controls so as to set it to turn away from the world! This is what we shall do!
>>29886284>>ENTER COMBATKilling the planet isn't cool!
Rolled 5>>29886284All right, we're doing this.>Tail whack
>>29886284Really? The Bob-Omb can't hear a command to explode?It's not like it would've done much but damage his robot arm.
>>29886347Maybe the Luma knows how to fly?
>>29886381Fly the ship I mean.
>>29886284>"And when you have the world, what then? You'll still have an observatory with living bombs on it."
Rolled 12>>29886284"See that's where you're wrong Darryl. You think not wanting the world destroyed means I'm a hero? Kicking your butt isn't being a good guy, it's just common sense!"Jump above him and turn into a Whomp.
>>29886350>>29886351Darryl chuckles as he pulls a small remote with a bent coat hanger antenna from his pocket. "Oh, and before I forget..." he grins, and pushes the button down. Immediately, all of the Bob-Ombs (save Rob and John) begin shaking wildly. All their fuses light at once, their eyes snap closed, and they stand in a comatose state."This is a timed battle.">FIGHT: DARRYL BONES!>DARRYL'S HP: 60!>Special condition: Darryl gets +3 to combat rolls!>Your HP: 30! Special ability: Shapeshift!>Spectro's HP: 20! Special ability: Fade-out!>Rob's HP: 15! Special ability: ???>Countdown: 9!Options:>ATTACK!

Rolled 6>>29886525Let's turn into a duck and throw Rob at Darryl!
Rolled 13, 3, 18 + 3 = 37>>29886525I'm an idiot! I fudged the roll!Also, I'm not going to let you guys start out with such bad rolls. Go again!
Rolled 5>>29886640Turn into duck and throw Rob at Darryl as to have him explode!

Rolled 20>>29886525Start with the basics and give our best tail swipe.
Rolled 3>>29886710Tailswipe of the SwiftShroom!
>>29886710That probably will be our best swipe ever.
Rolled 8, 1, 16 + 3 = 28>>29886675Darryl throws his remote to the ground and gets into a fighting stance. You release the little Luma, close you eyes and concentrate. In a puff of smoke, you take the form of a huge Chain Chomp.Darryl runs at you and leaps into the air, taking advantage of the low gravity. He barrels down toward you, his razor-sharp claw about to snap in your eye. You roll into him as he hits the ground, sending him backward.>No damage!Darryl's claw digs into the ground. As he struggles to get it out, Rob jumps, hitting him on the side of his head. Darryl's arm rips out of the ground and he falls to the side.>Darryl Bones takes 5 damage! Current HP: 55!Rob stops in his tracks and groans as his glowing fissures widen. The light from his cap radiates ever brighter.>ATTACK! (You know the drill!)Rolling for Darryl, Spectro and Rob.
Rolled 5>>29886640I'm gonna stick with Whomp smash.
Rolled 18>>29886818Turn into a Yoshi and butt-stomp him.>Thought you'd seen the last of these, bonehead?
Rolled 7>>29886818Send forth our baby Luma to dash back to Darryl's fortress and steal the rest of Rosalina.Then let's become Giga Bowser.
Rolled 1>>29886818Send the baby Luma to go rescue Mario and/or Luigi. Meanwhile, we go and unleash the fury of an island of the dead upon this dead bastard... Bone Hydra Smackdown, yo!
Rolled 18, 7, 19 + 3 = 47>>29886710You shift back into your true form."Spectro! Rob! Hit him back at me!" you shout as Darryl comes running back at you. You twirl in the air, delivering a powerful swipe of your tail right at his chest. Darryl is knocked upward, and Spectro tries to knock him back. Darryl sails right through Spectro, landing on Rob at full force. There's a sickening crunch and when Darryl gets up, you can see that his shell has been completely crushed. Yelmont's lungs are visible through the hole. They shine with stolen Star Power.>Darryl Bones takes 10 damage! Current HP: 45!When Rob gets back up, the fissures in his body are brighter. One completely tears through his right eye. They radiate light like brilliant spotlights.>Rob takes 5 damage! Current HP: 10!The Bob-Ombs continue to fizzle.>Countdown: 7!>ATTACK!

Rolled 17>>29886989Turn into Mario and jump on him.
Rolled 18>>29886989Turn into some kind of water monster/the FLUDD, douse those Bob-Ombs.
Rolled 10, 19, 17 + 3 = 49>>29887042You twirl around and become a sleek Bullet Bill. You furrow your iron brow and shoot through the air at Darryl. The skeleton dodges to the side, grabs your gloved hand, and redirects you into the soft earth.He kicks you over and over until Spectro manages to push him away.>You take 2 damage!>You take 2 damage!>You take 2 damage!>You take 2 damage! Current HP: 22!>Countdown: 6!>ATTACK! (You know the drill!)Rolling for Darryl, Spectro and Rob.
Rolled 7>>29887197Turn into a Chargin' Chuck, run over to one of the lit Bob-ombs and toss that sucker at him.
Rolled 5>>29887197This really doesn't seem fair.Can we turn into a key and free Mario and Luigi?
Rolled 14>>29887197Become Unagi, gnash Darryl between your mighty fangs.
>>29887238I don't think you can shift into inanimate objects like that (not counting the tanuki statue).
Rolled 17>>29887197Giga Bowser time.
Rolled 2>>29887197Just turn into a Super Blooper, wrap up the bob-ombs in your tentacles, and throw them into space.
Rolled 10>>29887197Try becoming a Thwomp maybe?Crush his bones to dust.
Rolled 13, 6, 15 + 3 = 37>>29887277Darryl struggles under Spectro and Rob's grip. You stare at him, look into the air, and close your eyes.You feel yourself getting bigger, stronger... and angrier.When you open your eyes, you stand tall in the form of a huge, twisted Bowser. You roar, showing Darryl your rows of sharp teeth. Spectro and Rob jump out of the way as your mouth wells up with flame.You let loose the blaze and shower Darryl in a horrible inferno.Darryl Bones takes 20 damage! Current HP: 25!You're exhausted when you shift back into your Tanoomba form.>Countdown: 5!>ATTACK!Rolling for Darryl, Spectro and Rob.
Rolled 17>>29887407Drink a power-up?
Rolled 14>>29887407Turn into a Mastadoom, and let loose with the LAZOR! beam.
Rolled 7>>29887407Take a breather, and ask Rob if he's getting a grip on whatever's happening to him.
Rolled 4>>29887407Let's try a classic multibonk.
Rolled 15>>29887407Gooper Blooper, grab all the bombs and throw them all at Darryl.
Rolled 17>>29887407Waluigi Time.
Rolled 8>>29887407Wish we could take a breather, but realize our allies suck.Just hit him in the lungs.
Rolled 4, 11, 4 = 19>>29887453You wheeze and cough every step of the way to Spectro and Rob."R-Rob... are you okay? How's the, uh, light?"Many large cracks converge at Rob's cap. The extreme light shoots out of every single fissure. Rob shakes his head. "It is quite painful, fungus. I don't think I could stand another blow."You give him a solemn nod. You then hear a burning, crackling hiss as Darryl tackles Spectro. He continually beats him with his white-hot claw as Yelmont's lungs sizzle inside his chest.>Spectro takes 15 points of damage! Current HP: 5!>Countdown: 4!>ATTACK!Rolling for Darryl, Spectro and Rob.
Rolled 12>>29887407Become one of those amp enemies from Mario 64, the ones that are the floating metal balls that are electrified.Could fry his cybernetics.
Rolled 14>>29887603Turn into a Mastadoom, and let loose with the LAZOR! beam.
Rolled 20>>29887625Seconded. All those metal parts could come back to bite Darryl.
Rolled 19>>29887603"GODDAMNIT SPECTRO YOU'RE A GHOST"Become Shadow Mario, pummel Darryl Bones to death.
Rolled 6>>29887603Change into a Yoshi, and pull out his stolen lungs with your tongue. It's yucky and ironical. I think.
Rolled 9>>29887666>>29887603...Actually this is a perfect idea.
Rolled 8>>29887603What Satan said, only Boshi.
Rolled 2>>29887603Just gather our resolve and do one big attack.
Rolled 4, 16, 10 = 30>>29887625>>29887659You turn into one a' them floating electricity balls and float over to Darryl. You slam into his arm, causing him to jolt away from Spectro. He convulses on the ground for just a moment before his steel arm falls off.>Darryl takes 5 damage! Current HP: 20!Darryl gets back up and rattles, his burnt lungs leaving him unable to communicate.>Countdown: 3!>ATTACK! COME ON, YOU'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME!Rolling for Darryl, Spectro and Rob.
Rolled 16>>29887818Turn into a Mastadoom, and let loose with the LAZOR! beam.
Rolled 19>>29887603Punch him in the face.
Rolled 10>>29887818Become the biggest Thwomp there ever was, and land on Darryl.
Rolled 18>>29887818Bone. Hydra. Smack. Down. Let's end this insanity how we started it.
Rolled 13>>29887818Turn into a Chargin' Chuck and CHARGE this schmuck!
Rolled 8>>29887818I'd say rip his lungs out with Yoshi's tongue, and shove it into Rob-Omb.More star power for him.
Rolled 9, 10, 2 = 21>>29887842Darryl barely has a chance to move before you hop into the air and give him a tail-slap right in his face. His ashy bones crack, leaving a chip where you hit him.>Darryl Bones takes 5 damage! Current HP: 15!The Bob-Ombs in the background grow louder. They begin to spark as the flames on their fuses approach their caps.>Countdown: 2!>ATTACK!>"ROB, NOW!"Rolling for Darryl, Spectro and Rob.
Rolled 18>>29887950>ROB, NOWLet's see just what the heck's gonna happen.
Rolled 10>>29887950>>29887994You saw Rob's roll there, right? It ain't happening. Turn into Donkey Kong and punch the bony bastard into orbit.
Rolled 1>>29887950Turn into a water ghost, douse the bombs.
Rolled 8>>29887950Chargin' Chuck attack!
Rolled 7>>29887950>>29888054Well fuck.How about we turn into the Darryl Bones we were friends with and then beat him up.Maybe a "how far you've fallen" thing.
Rolled 6>>29887950Throw the Bob-Ombs into space.
>>29887994Rob stands on the sides, groaning in agony as the crack over his right eye overtakes his face. The Bob-Omb is almost hidden by the light around him."THROW ME!" the walking bomb commands. "LET ME DESTROY HIM!"You dash to him, grip him in your teeth, and hurl him at Darryl.Time seems to slow down as Rob sails through the air, his body shattering when it slams into Darryl. The light within him shines out, and Darryl howls in agony. You are blinded by its radiance. The sound of the Bob-Ombs fades out...your vision swims back into focus. The whole world seems to be just a little bit blurred. Time stands still, and tiny streams of golden stardust swirl around you and Spectro. Spectro turns your attention to the place where Darryl stood.There at over twelve feet tall stands Rosalina, her one exposed eye staring right down at you.>"I... I'm so sorry.">"About time you showed up!">(Other)
>>29888236>" I didn't think it'd come to this.. Please forgive me. It's all I ask."
>>29888236>Um, I think this one's yours... *Hand over Luma*
>>29888236"I got a bit carried away didn't I? My bad."
>>29888294This is pretty good.
Rolled 1>>29888236>"I'm sorry... I'm so very sorry... For everything... I'm sorry I helped that monster, I'm sorry that I brought him up here, I'm sorry that I didn't stop him sooner... Let's just say I'm a sorry excuse for a Tanoomba and be done with it."
Rolled 20>>29888271>>29888294Both of these in this order.
Rolled 5>>29888355WE ARE FORGIVEN!
>>29888307I feel like this is the best we should do.Like despite what Darryl Bones said, we ARE a villain, it's just we're not the "kill 'em all" kind.
>>29888459Yeah... we're a villain, not a monster.
>>29888294"Um, I think this one's yours..." you say as you push Luma toward its mother. Rosalina picks the little Luma up and strokes its head, garnering a little squeak."I'm sorry... I'm so very sorry... For everything... I'm sorry I helped that monster, I'm sorry that I brought him up here, I'm sorry that I didn't stop him sooner... I didn't think it'd come to this.. Please forgive me. It's all I ask."Rosalina shakes her head and releases the little Luma to float next to her."Your actions alongside this fiend were atrocious and irresponsible. Were I an unforgiving person, I would strike you down where you stand."You sink into your shoes with guilt."But I can see that you feel remorse from the bottom of your heart. Your actions against your former ally show me the decency that resides within you." She looks at the Bob-Ombs, watching their fire spread in slow motion. The slow explosions rend the Observatory around her. "Do not weep for me. My observatory has suffered many trials. This is not the end of our story, but if I do not act, it may be the end of yours."She holds her wand in the air."I will grant you one kindness in the form of escape. Tell me, Tanoomba. What location suits you?">Take me to Bowser's Castle. I just want to go home.>Take me to Toad Town. I don't want to be bad anymore.>Take me to Darryl's house. I want to see what's become of Donkey Kong, Blueford and Yelmont.>(Other)
>>29888236"I learned a valuable lesson about how it's possible to be TOO accommodating as a houseguest. Also, I think this guy is yours."
>>29888646Darryl's. Also, maybe tell her about the island.
Rolled 12>>29888646"How about to Sal and Leo? I like those guys, they're cool. Hey Spectro, you wanna come?!"
>>29888646"Take me to Bowser's Castle... I just wanna go home..."Also tell her about the Mario Bros that are locked up here.
>>29888646>Take me to Darryl's house. I want to see what's become of Donkey Kong, Blueford and Yelmont."Also you got the Plumbers too right? Pretty sure they were around here, weren't they?"
>>29888646Ask her what happened to Rob.
>>29888723"I want to go back to Yoshi's Island. I need to see what happened to Darryl's---to MY victims, and try to right the wrongs."Rosalina's lower half is completely covered in red fire. She gives you an understanding nod. "A noble pursuit. I wish you good luck, Tanoomba."You turn to Spectro as Rosalina waves her arms. "Don't you want to come with me?" you ask. Spectro shakes his head."Sorry, Tanny. My life's been nothin' but running. All I bring folks is harm. I know that if I go back there, I'll forget this and I'll just keep on ruining people's lives until my soul rots away. But now... I'm finally lucid. I finally know why I ruined everyone's day for fun..."He smiles, but not his usual malicious, toothy grin. His smile is sincere, and full of wistful regret."I just needed a good night's sleep."The world speeds back up and Spectro, Rosalina, little Luma and the Observatory are consumed in flame.+ + +So concludes this chapter of Mushroom Kingdom Quest.I hope you enjoyed it.

>>29888960So, what DID happen to Rob and the other Bob-Ombs?
>>29888960Well, Bowser's gonna be disappointed.
>>29889048Why? A guy he fired got his eventual comeuppance. If anything, we saved Bowser a job by stomping Darryl himself.Now, if you're talking about turning over the Observatory to Bowser, that's a different issue.
>>29889038Well, they exploded.I'm still trying to decide whether or not Rob will come back in a later episode.
>>29889074How about Mario and Luigi?I'm pretty sure heroes like them can't die in explosions, especially ones they didn't cause.

>>29889261eh, they're the Mario Bros. They've got extra lives.
