Welcome back to Save File Plays SMRPG! Last time, we we treated to the shocking realization that Mallow is… NOT A TADPOLE! I know… I know… it’s hard to get over. We also caught a glimpse of Bowser and his Koopa Troop getting ready to storm the castle. Now, however, it’s time to head to Rose Town, where they apparently need help. Well, that’s what Mario does, so let’s do it!
I also went back to see if the hidden dude in Mushroom Kingdom had anything new to say, but that was not the case.
FIRST STOP: ROSE TOWN
MUSIC: Here’s Some Weapons
Ohhhh… that looks… good…
Townsperson: I can’t move a muscle. Now I know how a scarecrow feels!
Immediately after, an arrow falls from the sky and hits her.
This place is great
I could use the front door of the Item Shop. Or I could use the chimney. I feel pretty good about my decision.
While it IS true that Mario can get up there, the only way he can do so is by jumping on the dude’s head. He seems pretty okay with it though.
There are some treasure chests inside, but Mario doesn’t seem like the kind of guy to steal someone’s treasures.
The hidden Frog Coin, however, is fair game. It’s not like they even knew it was there!
: Sure thing!
Concerned Dad: Oh! That’s great news! What a relief! Since we didn’t get hit by any arrows, I’ll tell you a secret. Enter the forest. When you hit an area with 4 paths, go left, left, straight, right, in that order. You’ll surely find something NICE.
Cool. I’ll take this advice soon enough.
Also, now that the guy is back in his house, I don’t have any qualms about stealing his treasure (10 Coins).
Okay, I’ve been putting it off long enough. The Inn is where we’re supposed to be headed.
MUSIC: Let’s Play “Geno”
Gaz as “Bowser”: Mwa ha ha… hey, Mario! I’ll be taking care of Princess Toadstool now.
Gaz as “Bowser”: Attention, Toadstool! You’re coming’ with ME! Zip your lip!
Gaz as “Toadstool”: HELP!!!! HAAAALP!!! Somebody, please HELP me!!!
Gaz: For real? Well, you have the hat… AND the funky ‘stache…! Are you really Mario?! How do I know it’s you? You might just be pulling my leg! Show me! PROVE IT!
Gaz: All right! Hey Mario, wanna play with me? I’m playing “Save the world!”
Gaz’s Mom: Now, Gaz…! Mario might be a little tired, dear.
Gaz: Awwww, come on, mom! YOU never play with me! It’s no fun playing alone!
Gaz’s Mom: Oh dear… Mario, I hate to ask, but… Could you play with Gaz for a little while?
Gaz: I’ll be “Geno,” okay? Ready? Let’s play from where I left off! All set?
Gaz: Better watch out, Bowser, cause Geno’s gonna blow you away! TAKE THIS!
He then proceeds to ram Mario into the wall.
Gaz: Owwww… Oh no, if he keeps this up, I’m finished! All right, you asked for it! The super duper… custom, patented, one and only… SHOOTING STAR SHOT!!
Oh… oh, dear.
MUSIC: Geno Awakens
