Welcome to Mafia: Battle of the Royal Palace! Hosted by @Lord o da rings! This game is based off of some of the fan-favorite Mario characters from the Mario world! If you need a refresher on the rules, you’ll find them here. Spoiler: Flavour It was a day supposed to be of bliss. Princess Peach had invited Mario, Luigi, and some of her other friends to the Royal Palace for a day of festivities and fun. Mario had only recently returned from defeating Bowser for the forty-seventh time, and thus, a party was being thrown to celebrate. Everyone, EVERYONE was coming. Once everyone had arrived, Peach came down to meet her friends from her quarters to address them all. “Welcome my friends to the Mushroom Kingdom!” Peach shouted aloud, happiness evident in her tone. “I’m very humbled that all of your have taken a day off from your lives to spend your time with me here! I’ve prepared many games and such for us all to take part in, such as Tennis, Golf, and some Karting as well! I hope you all enjoy the day, as I’m sure we’ll all have a lot of fun!” Peach concluded. Everyone applauded her. They were all excited to spend time at the Royal Palace, and have an entire day set aside without a care in the world. Or that was the intent… ~~~ Several miles away, in the outskirts of the kingdom, an attack was being planned, none other than by Bowser and his malicious koopa army. “Alright, we’ve got all of our minions ready to attack” Kamek told his leader Bowser. “Excellent… Give it a few more moments and we’ll be ready to lay waste to the pitiful Mushroom Kingdom” Bowser roared. “And this time, more than just Peach and Mario will be involved…” ~~~ Back at the palace, Peach, Mario and all of their friends were gearing up for their first activity, a tennis tournament. “Is everyone ready for the first round?” Peach asked her friends. They all knodded to her, signaling her to begin. “Alright! Here are the pai--” Peach began to say. Suddenly, the ground began to shake. So violently that a couple of people lost their balance. The entire group was scared, and was trying to figure out what was happening. However, they were about to get their answer… Out of nowhere, a huge bomb of smog hit the Royal Palace, so thick that not a single person inside could see anything. Bowser and his army were however immune to this smog, and could see as far through it as they’d like. “Koopas! Go! Destroy the kingdom! But leave the Royal Palace to me…” Bowser said ominously. With that, his koopas began their destructive siege on the lands of the Mushroom Kingdom, wrecking anything in their path. Bowser, and his most powerful koopas sealed every exit they could find in the Royal Palace. Then, Bowser and his followers went out to the courtyard, where the tennis tournament was supposed to be taking place. "Alright, now listen up!" Bowser roared. "We're going to play a little game! You'll have to guess who in this smog caused all of this mayhem. It won't be easy, since you can't even see each other, and while you try to destroy us, we get to sit back and watch you all destroy yourselves" he finished, leaving a both figurative and literal cloud of fear over the do-gooders of the world.
