The Story so Far

The RPC, or role-playing chat, is an ongoing, fictitious story about the Mario universe. Each member of the chat room chooses a character from a Mario game, and acts as that character in the storyline. Newcomers should talk to SMBHQMaster about getting a character. They should also look at the chat room rules for points of ettiquette and conduct in the RPC. Confused about the storyline from previous nights? Read on...

Chapter #1 7/28/98
It all started as a nice, bright day in the Mushroom Kingdom. That is, until Bowser came along. All of a sudden, teh happy mushroom kingdom was shocked as the princess was captured. While Luigi and Yoshi attempted to save her, Mari osayed behind and watched a race between a Koopa Troopa and King Bobomb up Bobomb Summit. Koopa The Quick won, causing King Bobomb to get quite angry. He exploded, and in doing so, knocked the unaware Mario right into Bowser's stomach, and nearly destorying Bob-omb battlefield. The blow to the stomach released Bowsers grip on Peach, and she was saved, yet a little groggy. Mario and Luigi went off in pursuit of the fleeing Koopa lord, while Yoshi attended to the barely concious princess. "Bowser...taken...stars....mushrooms". It turns out Bowser had managed to someow steal all of Mushroom Lands item's in the confusion. On a side note, rumors also start to fly around about the princesses possible pregnancy! Wow, what will happen next? To be continued...
Chapter #2 7/29/98
Bowser has returned, and he has a deal. He offers Mario and Luigi all their precious items back, for the princess! While the Mario's ponder the deal, the Bob-omb King hails everyone from atop his summit. "Pay up or the princess is crushed!". The Bros. Put Bowsers plan on hold as they bravely go to attack the huge bomb. Meanwhile, Wario approaches King Bowser and offers his services toward the Koopa ruler. Together, the evil pair steals the onstantly eating princess away from the Mario's, who are busy with thousands of smaller bombs summoned by the king. The bombs force the Bros. Back into the lake, but when the pint-size nukes reach the water, they explode, causing a tidal wave to engulf everything. Wario casts a spell to protect him and Bowser in Koopa's Keep, with the stolen princess still munching everything she could find. Just as Mario and Luigi are about to go off and rescue Peach (again) Yoshi suddenly stops them. "There they are. They're the ones who kidnapped the princess" Yoshi cried as an encroaching group of Mushroom citizens advance on them. Is this the end of our heroes? To be continued...
Chapter #3 8/5/98
Yoshi and Toad get ever closer to Mario, but just when they're about to overtake him, Wario beellows over the crowd. "I cast a spell placing Mario in a remote desert! If he isn't chicken, he will agree to ight me one on one." With Luigi locked up and Mario out of the picture, Yoshi realizes he's hungry. He starts to advance on Bowser (who he knows has piles of food) and the brainwashed Toad follows him (thinking he's hungry). Peach also has the munchies (what else is new) and is chasing Bowser and screaming to get it. In the remote desert, Mario agrees to Wario's fight, but the stakes are high. The winner will get two sets of keys, one to the Mushroom Kingdom (Mario's) and one to the chest of items (Wario's). The loser must stay in the desert forever! The fight begins, and though Mario can evade Wario for a little bit, he is enticed by an offer from Wario of pasta. Mario can't resist, and eats the pasta, which is coated with knockout drops. Mario is out cold and Wario escapes with the keys. He returns to The Mushroom Kingdom to find Yoshi and Toad bickering over food and Peach and Yoshette fighting for no reason in particular. Wario uses this chance to announce his control over the entire world. Yoshi, sensing deep inside that he still likes Mario, goes forward with a plan to save him. Using flattery, the dino. gets on Wario's good side, and manages to steal his magic wand, which he promptly uses to get to Mario's remote location. He awakens him with the smell of lasagna, and the wand warps them back to The Mushroom Kingdom. Mario then starts out his plans to buy some time. First, he tells Bowser he shouldn't let Wario do this to him, and that he's the rightful ruler. This incites the Koopa to send his armies toward his own castle (which has been overtaken by Wario). Wario's gaurds respond in defense, and pretty soon a war has erupted. Mario is about to use this chance to get the keys back, when he finds a letter on the ground. It's Gaz, from Rose Town! They're having a problem with rose bushes over there, and he needs help. "Wario will have to wait" Mario cries, "We're headed to Rose Town". To Be Continued...

This is exactly what ahppened, but the bombs resulting blast eneded up deafeneing Mario. It also gave a chance for the greedy bomb to capture Luigi. "Pay up, all you rose towners, or Mario stays deaf forever" he cried as he ran off towards Moleville. Yoshette then runs off to try and save Luigi. A breathless Yoshi has a plan, which he desperately tries to convey to the deaf Mario. Finally, he uses sign language, and they're off to moleville.

Meanwhile, Yoshette finally finds Luigi who had been wandering aimlessly through Moleville. They quickly get back to The Mushroom Kingdom to fight Wario, but they stop to say hi to princess Peach.
