Prologue: A Brief Recap Before the Main Course...
I’m BOB of Cheesy Special FX Incorporated and the narrator of this story! About a month ago in the Mushroom Kingdom as well as the rest of Plit, a major amount of events occurred. Mario Mario, the renowned hero, had been killed, then he was magically combined with the mystical and ancient item, the Crystal Star. “Stario”, a hybrid of Super Mario and the Crystal Star, was born. Though not truly Mario, Stario has most of the basic elements and properties of his former self. Stario, in an awesome display of power, battled against a seemingly invincible foe calling himself Vuljiin. Vuljiin had desired the three precious gems he had told Mario to retrieve. Their true abilities unknown, Mario defended the Crystals with his life. Unfortunately, he was killed, but was brought back as Stario. Vuljiin was defeated.
Princess Toadstool was kidnapped- not by Bowser (GASP), but by a notorious, deranged chef known only as Torte. The mustachioed Koopa captured the princess in an effort to make his evil plan even more maniacal and devilish. Though all it did was make people get stressed out and add to the unique ways of the chef, we still love him, that big galoot. Chef Torte had also formed his Team of Terror, a brutal squad of seven individuals, each with their own strengths: Apprentice, chef and villain in training; Changling, a shapeshifting Magikoopa; Genius Guy, an overly intelligent Shy Guy imbecile that crafted the chef’s Mecha Yoshi, the match to Torte's bonfire of evil; the now dead Grand Glum Reaper, with superior magical abilities; Soshi, another killed in action, a dragon Yoshi with the ability to fly; Whomp, a large living concrete brick; And Embert T. Podoboo, a fireball that just seemed to show up.
King Bowser Koopa was not left out of the adventure. He reunited with his long lost Koopalings (excluding Ludwig) and built a second metal monster, Mecha Mario, with a Mecha Bowser hidden just in case. His robot and Genius Guy's met on the tropical Dinosaur Land and fought it out. While Mario was struggling against Vuljiin, Yoshi, Toad, Luigi, Mallow, and some others flew to Dinosaur Land and hijacked the Mecha Yoshi and stopped Bowser’s plan. Yoshi followed the escaped Chef Torte to his lair on the Island of Soshi. Two of Torte’s team members had been killed, while the rest were out of the picture. Chef Torte was defeated by Yoshi, and he plummeted into Mount Soshima, the volcano of Isle Soshi. Then all of the good guys rendezvoused back in the Mushroom Kingdom to see Stario finish Vuljiin. After this, all of the good guys relaxed and celebrated at Dinosaur Land with their good Yoshi pals.
Some questions and concerns may remain for you, such as the following. You may find yourself asking, “What about the other two Cosmos Crystals?” or maybe, “What was the Koopa Break-up about anyway?” or even, “Why was there a musical?” These questions and more will be answered in the sequel... which you’re reading write now. Yep! It’s, The Good, the Bad, and the Torte 2: The Four Bringers of Fire!
