Paper Mario: The Solar Relics prologue by Sindorman Paper Mario: The Solar Relics prologue by Sindorman
Hey Gaiz, i'm back, with my Paper Mario fan-game that i havent been working on in forever! Actually sorta starting to have a story now, so here goes!

Prologue: Cruiseship Chaos
Joining Party members: Boozack
Temporary Party members: Princess Daisy
Setting: Mushroom Harbour, Daisy Cruiser

Awakening a while after the events of the prologue (Which i'm working on at the moment), it has become pitch dark all over the Mushroom Kingdom, even though it’s only midday! Princess Daisy of Sarassaland reveals that she knows how to restore the sunlight, and takes Mario and Goombierre down to the harbor, to her cruise ship, Thee Daisy Cruiser. Onboard the ship, there is a sudden power outage, and Daisy seems disconcerted for some reason. 

She rushes of in a hurry, and leaves Mario and Goombierre. Exploring the ship, they finds Boozack, the ship's bartender, who has a huge crush on the Princess. Suddenly Daisy is heard screaming in the distance, and a weird voice is heard over the Ships PA system: They rush of to find the princess, and discover her captured by Tatanga, an old enemy of Mario, who was revealed to have been cryogenicaly frozen aboard the ships lab, but has now thawed due to the power outage, and freezes the princess with the same technology he was frozen with. 

After a long chase through the ship and its AC vents, Mario and Tatanga square of in the ships lab, Tatanga being aided by several cryogenically frozen Shroobs, who are awoken during the battle, and Mario joined by Princess Daisy, who is planning to settle a score! After a long and grueling fight, Mario and his allies are able to defeat Tatanga and put him back into Stasis. Daisy reveals that ever since her kidnapping by Tatanga, the Sarassaland government has been doing research on extraterrestrials, and have kept several in stasis on the boat. 

As a thank you gesture towards Mario, Daisy tells him about the Solar Relics, A legend from Sarassalands past. These 8 relics are said to contain the ability to restore sunlight to the world. She hypothesizes that, should they exist, the objects can counter the Counts Curse, and Mario has to get them back to restore sunlight to the world. She suggests mario and his friends join her back to Sarassaland, to talk to her grandfather, who knows a lot more on the subject

Oooh... Here's a PM game I haven't seen yet :D While when I first saw it, I thought it was too similar to :iconrenleixue: 's "World at End", after reading it, I see it definitely has its own flare :) I really like the idea of a Cryogenic lab freezing aliens on cruiser!!!??? Whoa!

But, I'm kinda confused; I noticed you said you haven't yet done the prologue, so there's definitely some missing context here :P But even with what I can imply, Is this really a chapter? If anything, THIS feels like the prologue, since Mario doesn't actually gain a Solar Relic at the end :/ There's nothing wrong with that per se, I just wonder the actually context that is missing here ^^;

Thanks so much! I've kinda noticed as i was doing the following chapters, that this needs some work, and like you say, this would propably be more of a prologue than an actual chapter! Going to post the opening in not too long, so you get some context on the whole thing, which is, as you were saying, a bit confusing at the moment. 

Didnt know about the other one actually, had this idea bouncing around for a few years, before i actually did anything with it!

No problem :) Still, Mario doesn't seem to get a "Solar Relic" at the end of the chapter, (assuming that's what he'll be collecting), oh well, I'll surely find out soon enough :)

Yeah, I think it was mostly the whole "Tatanga in Sarasaland working with shroobs" that made it a bit too similar, but hey, I ain't accusing you of anything, just a coincidence ^^

Yeah, as i said, i'll tweak the story a bit by the time the opening and chapter two is done :)

Yeah, i can see why you thought they were pretty simmilar, but tatanga is just a minor boss in mine, not really having too much significance with the overall plot :)

Oh wait, so Tatanga isn't the main villain? Ah... hmmm, interesting, I wonder if Tatanga's gonna be one of those characters who ends awakening or vastly helping the true villain (perhaps without intention) Anyway, this all sounds very interesting! Good job ;)

This a beginning so full of promises. I like how the main area is a boat ship rather than a town as usual.
I am looking forward to read next parts especially the Solar Relics, I love sidereal artifacts. And the Oz parody, if what I saw in your artistic gallery is going to happen...

Ah, haven't seen you post for a long time! How's it been? Anyway, the chapter is great, and Daisy knowledge about the Solar Relics surprised me (and the Sarassaland goverment is probably better than Mushroom Kingdom's, if they have any) Well, cant wait for more!

Thanks so much :D School has been pretty much eating up my time, so now that i've got summer vacation, i can finally get back to some fun stuff :D
I do plan a visit to Sarassaland in one of the future chapters, but it depends if i can get a design i'm happy with down on the Sarassaland-People!

The next chapter should be done tonight or tomorrow! Featuring a vampire siege of Toad University
