[RP Thread] Peace rests... for now. Bowser has been defeated once again, and Princess Peach has invited the great heroes Mario and Luigi over to her castle for a celebration of the return of the Toad Brigade from their space exploration. As the Starshroom heads to land, however, a black void opens in the sky and dark meteors are rained all across Toad Town. A mysterious villain appears, proclaiming herself Phantom, heir to the power of the Tribe of Darkness. With a chamber hidden below Toad Town revealed to contain the location of the Tribe's Dark Citadel, Phantom vanishes to summon the Citadel and use it to become the greatest dark magic user in the world. In the distraction, however, Bowser has managed to sneak in and kidnap Princess Peach (and Toadsworth since he was right beside her)! The chase of the Mario Bros. reveals a dark force-field stopping Bowser from entering his castle, despite the full force of his army. With Bowser's Castle discovered as the burial place of the Dark Citadel, the Mario Bros. must find the Shadow Blade - an ancient weapon made by the Tribe of Darkness with incredible dark magic - and use it to shatter the shield, else Phantom may just wreak greater havoc on the world than Bowser ever could... So basically, this RP is a giant macguffin hunt across various areas with a ton of cameos and new plot points. It's gonna be more so plot-driven than not, but it's still an RP so as long as you play the characters and follow the story whatever can happen. Some characters fit into the plot, while some others may not. We'll be dividing the story into "acts", similar to Paper Mario's Chapter system. I'll be listing off a ton of characters - the ones that I've already figured out how to work into the story. Feel free to ask me about someone else though, and I'll see if they can work or not!
