The guy who makes pointless topics on the SGSB when he's bored. Thank you for your interest in my Luigi's Adventures FAQ. I have documented all Luigi's stories about his adventures, word for word. I have also documented all the Super Luigi books, which tell similar stories. This FAQ wouldn't be a Luigi's Adventures FAQ without the Super Luigi books, would it now? 1-B: Version history Version 1.00 (Oct 21 2004) ...Erm, since this is the first FAQ version, I suppose there's no history of note. Version 1.01 (Oct 23 2004) Added "Hatesong Tower" to the list. Version 1.02 (Nov 9 2004) By request of "ihavespaceballs", added comments from Luigi's partners. Version 1.03 (Nov 12 2004) Added "Super Luigi Book" to the list. Planning to extend the FAQ to include all five volumes of the Super Luigi series. Version 1.04 (Dec 30 2004) Happy new year! Added the Super Luigi books to the FAQ by popular demand. Removed the quotation marks from the beginning and end of all the stories. 1-C: Technical junk I did not get Luigi's permission to reproduce his stories in document form. 'Course, it's hard to get permission from a video game character. Well, you get my point. If you want to mention something to me, here's my e-mail address. Please, do not abuse it. email@example.com Did I forget anything? I don't think I did. 2: Luigi's adventures Ah, the good part. Let's see what Luigi has to say. I have my own comments about Luigi's stories, which I will indicate in square  brackets. 2-A: Waffle Kingdom Letter Hear this story after raiding Hooktail Castle and getting the first Crystal Star. My big brother--that's you, Bro--got a letter from Princess Peach and took off. Left behind as usual, I was cooking a snack at home when another letter arrived. We don't get so much mail, so I was thinking: "Huh?" This is what the letter said: "Sirs! My name is Crepe. I am a cabinet minister in the far-off Waffle Kingdom. Our land has been attacked by the Chestnut King, who took our Princess Eclair. [Your typical video game plot.] I ask, nay, BEG for your assistance! The Waffle Kingdom needs your skills. I humbly request your prompt response, sirs. Sincerely, Crepe" ...Well, I don't remember it exactly, but I think it went something like that. With Mario--that's you, Bro-- gone, it fell to me to answer this plea! Hesitating only a teensy bit [strange. Heroes don't usually hesitate for that long], I headed to the Waffle Kingdom to investigate. Oh, no, first I wrote a note to myself about what I was cooking. Then I left. Once I reached the Waffle Kingdom, I met Minister Crepe, who filled me in. The Chestnut King had kidnapped Princess Eclair and vanished. Apparently, though, some oracle said a Marvelous Compass could locate her. This Marvelous Compass had been broken into seven parts by an ancient curse... ...and those parts had been scattered across the land. Can you believe it, Bro? Each part of the Marvelous Compass was said to point to the next. [Hm, Nintendo has some creativity issues. That's exactly what happens with the Crystal Stars.] And since one of the parts was embedded in the tiara worn by the princess... I surmised that once I collected all the parts, I'd find her! Smart, huh? The minister gave me the compass base spoken of in Waffler fables... When it activated, the entire thing lit right up, indicating the deep south... It was pointing me toward Rumblebump Volcano on the Pudding Continent! So yeah, here I am! I'm sailing out of Rougeport for Rumblebump Volcano. It's probably gonna be pretty dangerous, but... I gotta rescue that princess! 2-B or not 2-B? Sorry, couldn't resist the pun. *ahem* 2-B: Rumblebump Volcano Hear this story after locating the second Crystal Star and turning the Magnus Von Grapple into scrap metal. As soon as my ship docked on the Pudding Continent, I set out for the volcano. To reach my destination, I spent several days fording through dense jungle... Scary beasts were all over! More than once I thought I was done for, Bro! I may have screamed a bit. To scare them off, you know. But as fate would have it... A Blooper named Blooey heard me shrieking and found me in this one town. Blooey was on a journey of his own, but he joined me after hearing my tale. Now, Blooey's a madman. Back in his hometown, they call him "White Torpedo"! Yeah, he's a tough guy. Anyway, he helped me fight to Rumblebump Volcano. This place was all about bubbling lava pools and heat that'd make the sun sweat. [Well, it's a volcano. What'd you expect?] AND, the place was lousy with evil traps designed to protect the compass piece. The scariest one of all was this gigantic, 100-foot-tall statue that stomped around. Now, the weakness of this giant statue, Bro, was a red gem on its forehead... Now, I can jump high, but not high enough to reach this thing by a long shot. So I came up with this plan for Blooey to hit that weak spot! "All you, man!" I said. I waited for a pause in the statue's movements and hucked Blooey up there! [Hucked?] And bull's-eye! The White Torpedo saved the day! That jewel got whacked! It was a critical hit, and that stone statue toppled and crumbled into pieces! Once that was done, it was an easy stroll to the room where the treasure was. Unfortunately, Princess Eclair was nowhere to be found... But I got another piece of the Marvelous Compass, and put it in the base... Now the compass pointed west, to Plumpbelly Village on the Strudel Continent. So I set sails once again and came back here to Rougeport to recharge. That's what happened to me lately, but I'll be heading back out soon... Blooey the Blooper's comments: "Hey there, I'm Blooey. ...And this guy is a total liar! Don't listen to him! You heard his story, right? Well, he did TRY to throw me, but he completely tripped! And what happens? I end up landing in lava! LAVA, man! You think that feels good? [But if that's true, how did Luigi beat that statue thing?] Thanks to him, you can stick a fork in me! I'm well-done! My pale skin's crispified! I'll NEVER forgive this guy! I'm gonna make him pay if it takes my whole lifetime! That's the ONLY reason I'm still hanging around with him. YOU'LL PAY, LUIGI!" 2-C: Plumpbelly Village Hear this story after conquering the Glitz Pit and obtaining the third Crystal Star. Once we made landfall on the Strudel Continent, we made for Plumpbelly Village. Once we got there, though, we immediately noticed that something was wrong. We learned from the mayor that the town was ruled by a giant snake named Hizza! He said that his own daughter was gonna be offered up as a sacrifice to this beast, too! So, of course, being heroic, I offered myself up to go in her stead! Brave, huh? Now, the custom was for sacrifices to be dressed as brides, so I got all dolled up... [I would LOVE to have seen this.] I was one hot sacrifice, Bro. I looked so good, I fooled our foes and got in Hizza's lair. It was kind of rough fighting in that gown, but I managed. Chiffon really chafes, Bro! I finally found Hizza... and the snake had a second head on its tail! Talk about scary! I fainted real quick, but when I came to, I managed to distract both heads... It reared up, fangs bared to attack, and at that moment, I deftly lunged left! His gaping mouths smashed into one another... and he vanished in a cloud of smoke! [The Super Luigi book explains... Hizza ate himself.] A shining plate fell down on the spot where Hizza's body had been coiled... Yes! Another compass piece! I set it, and it pointed east, to Circuit Break Island! Just as I was about to leave town, the mayor asked me to stay and marry his daughter. I thought about it--she was sorta cute--but we ended up sneaking off the next morning. I mean, I still have to save Princess Eclair from the Chestnut King! And...when the Marvelous Compass activated this time, I heard somebody's voice. It was so beautiful, Bro... I'm certain it was Princess Eclair's voice! My heart began to race! That's when I realized it: Princess Eclair... I think I... Oh! I kinda zoned out there. Umm... So, yeah. We set sail again after ditching town... And somehow we managed to get back here to Rougeport. And here I am! Jerry the Bob-omb's comments: "Hi, I guess. I'm Jerry. I'm a Bob-omb from Plumpbelly Village. Nice meeting you. Sorry I sound so down, but you would be too if you saw Luigi dressed as a bride. [Maybe I wouldn't LOVE to have seen that.] I'm serious. It scarred me. It was honestly scarier than that giant snake-thing. I feel I now have a moral duty to stop Luigi from ever dressing as a bride again. I have to protect the world from my fate. That's why I'm sticking close to this guy." 2-D: Circuit Break Island Hear this story after breaking the curse of Twilight Town and snagging the fourth Crystal Star. Just as our boat arrived at Circuit Break Island, we heard this incredible racket! We soon found out that they hold kart races almost every day on the island. Whoever takes first place in the race gets to rule the island as king for that day. Just as we got to the race-track, they were holding the awards ceremony... I couldn't believe my eyes! Right there, on the trophy they give to the winner... It was another piece of the Marvelous Compass! I almost passed dead away! I decided right then and there that the only thing to do was enter the next race. [Well, duh.] I mean, I've driven in kart races before, so I thought I'd be OK. Boy, was I wrong. The karts were supercharged machines that could send you airborne with their exhaust! These vehicles were armed with missiles and bazookas... It was "anything goes," Bro! Of course, I wanted to get right out of there, pronto! These drivers were crazed! But I worked up my courage and signed up anyway. And my race day finally came... I got one of the best karts: the Big Green 01! I took my position at the start line... The light went green, I stomped the accelerator... and something bad happened. [You expected something like this. I know you did.] I was in reverse! The Big Green 01 went rocketing backwards with me yelling... I crashed into the wall behind me hard enough to cut me off midscream. [Midscream? Luigi certainly has a unique way with words.] In one fell swoop I dropped into last place and wrecked my racing machine... But it wasn't all bad news: all the other cars crashed because of my maneuver... Once I got in gear and took off, I was the only car left! I won by a country mile, Bro! [Country mile? That any different from a regular mile?] I took the piece off of my trophy and added it to the Marvelous Compass... The compass came to life and pointed me toward Jazzafrazz Town in the east! Then I heard that voice! Princess Eclair's voice echoed in my ears again! Oh, my princess! Random words would form poetry if spoken by your voice! I will most definitely save you! Just wait for me! Princess Eclair!!! Oh! Sorry about that, Bro... Umm... So, after that, I got back on my boat... And came back here to Rougeport. And that's what's been up with me. Torque the Buzzy Beetle's comments: "Yeah, I'm Torque, and don't for a second think this dude's tellin' the whole story. The only reason I lent him my rig was 'cause he got down on his knees and begged. And what happens? He's in it for one second before he completely totals it! Idiot! I'm not lettin' this dip outta my sight until he repays me the 5,000-coin repair costs! [Same old, same old.]" 2-E: Jazzafrazz Town Hear this story after sailing to Keelhaul Key and finding the fifth Crystal Star. As soon as we hit Jazzafrazz Town, we were overcome by the glitz and the glamour. It's a very lively place, Bro. Tons of Dayzees live there, and they're always smiling! While looking for the piece of compass, I met a hip Dayzee named Hayzee. Hayzee was a producer, and he was looking for actors to go on stage with him. I told him we couldn't, since we were looking for the compass part, you know. But Hayzee said we could WIN the compass part in the upcoming Drama Slam! He said the so-called Dramalama Plaque might, in fact, be one of the parts! Well, we just had to give it a try, so we rehearsed with the cast and hit the stage! Our musical was called "The Mystery of the Fiery Hat of Social Awareness." [Whew, what a title.] The script was great, but I got really hosed, Bro... My "role"... My "part"... ...Was grass! I played grass by the side of the road! Grass, Bro! Grass! I just sprawled out on the ground and had to be silent. Everyone but me had lines... I don't care if I was wearing green! Who casts someone based on that? It was awful! [All right, we get the point.] In the end, our musical was the talk on the town, and we won the Drama Slam. I got the compass part I was after, but even that didn't make me very happy. The huge after-party just bummed me out more, so I snuck out the back door. But WOW! Outside were tons of fans! MY fans! Fans of grass! They swarmed me! I just couldn't believe it! Imagine! Cheering for grass! I was ecstatic, Bro! [Well, they ARE Dayzees. What would they be fans of, if not grass?] After that I added the piece to the Marvelous Compass, which pointed north. It pointed to the Rapturous Ruins in Grimble Forest. Then... The voice again... Oh, my cherished Princess Eclair! How you soothe me! I would be grass for you... I will find you! I will reach you! I will stand by your side and be your Luigi! Wow. Sorry about that, Bro. Umm... So, yeah, anyway... Then I got back on my boat. I came back to Rougeport, and here I am, another leg of my adventure completed! Hayzee the Dayzee's comments: "I'm Hayzee! And I must say, Luigi is a great actor, one of the finest I've seen! [Finally, one of Luigi's partners that ISN'T complaining.] After this adventure, we're going on tour to appear on stages everywhere! I'm going to be known as "The Red Miracle"! And, of course, Luigi will be grass!" 2-F: Rapturous Ruins Hear this story after riding the Excess Express and grabbing the sixth Crystal Star from Poshley Sanctum. After journeying deep into the Grimble Forest, I found the domed Rapturous Ruins. Inside, everything was pure white. You couldn't tell where the floor became walls... Proceeding dead ahead, I found myself in a chamber where a young boy sat. As I approached the boy, someone named Screamy appeared out of nowhere! Screamy said the boy's name was Cranberry, and that he'd wake for a child of fate. That didn't make any sense to me, so I started searching quietly for the compass piece. But then it happened, Bro: I got a tiny tickle in my nose, and I let out a huge sneeze! Well, Cranberry must've heard it, 'cause he opened his eyes right up! He looked at me and smiled. And all of a sudden I could understand his language! Can you believe it? I leaerned that the boy was the last of an ancient race, the Luffs... He had been there guarding the Marvelous Compass piece for the last thousand years! He told me that the compass is an item with the power to see into the future... The ancient Luff empire used the power of the compass to rule much of the world. Because of their greed, they were cursed by the compass, and their empire collapsed. [A perfect case of cursed justice.] To prevent a repeat of their fate, Cranberry broke the compass into seven parts. [Huh? I thought it was the curse itself that broke the compass.] He hid six and kept one, putting himself to sleep until a worthy hero woke him. [No doubt, being woken by a sneeze is not what he had in mind.] I WAS that hero, Bro! He gave it to me, and then he and the ruins vanished... When I added that piece to the compass... It pointed to the far north, where dreaded Hatesong Tower stands. This time, I heard Princess Eclair's voice more clearly than ever before! I will rescue the princess! I will be super! And then I'll... I'll... I'll... Well, I'll figure the rest out later. Anyway, I headed back here to Rougeport after that. I'm making my final preparations for my final battle now. I'm a little nervous, Bro. But that's what I've been up to, anyway! Screamy the ???'s comments: "...I'm Screamy. I wonder what future is plotted for us by he who holds the compass... For I must deliver something... [What?]" 2-G: Hatesong Tower Hear this story after collecting all seven Crystal Stars. The last one is on the moon, of all places! Hatesong Tower stands atop a jagged, unclimbable cliff beyond the northernmost sea. The winds whistle down the cliff, howling like banshees singing songs of hate... People say it's pretty much the scariest place in the world. And I had to go there. Blocking out the bone-chilling howls, I somehow managed to reach the tower's door. I was terrified, but thoughts of Princess Eclair warmed my heart and gave me power. All of my companions felt the same way. They were with me to the bitter end. [He's still got everyone else with him?] The door to the tower swung slowly opened to reveal an inconceivable darkness... I tried to call out Princess Eclair's name, but I couldn't even breathe because... As I strained my eyes in the darkness, I saw the most terrifying beast of all! The Chestnut King himself appeared before me! He was monstrous and drooling! Puddles of toxic goo dripped from his mouth, melting the very ground at our feet! I couldn't stop shaking, but I gritted my teeth and faced the evil beast dead-on! I dodged the king's fangs, jumped onto his chest, and gave him a hammer-whack! [Where'd he get the hammer?] My swing split the air and crashed dead-center onto the Chestnut King's skull! Hope powered me up, Bro! I was going toe-to-toe with the king, and I was loving it! "This is it!" I thought! I can win this! I'll risk it all on my next blow! I gripped my hammer tight and waited for my moment... The tension stung me... SHHHWHAAAAACK! The ocean winds raged against the tower windows! With that sound as my call to battle, I advanced with no mercy in my heart! And then.................................. ............ And then.......................................................... ...................................................... [Come on, get on with it!] ......................................................................... ............................................................................... .............................................. I beat him. I defeated the Chestnut King. An even worse beast came next, a nightmare thing... but I beat it, too. [Agh! He's skipping all the good parts!] ........................... I rescued Princess Eclair. It was all over. And then I came back to Rougeport and had a light lunch. And that's about it. .......................... Huh? You think there's more to the story than that? Not at all. That's it. That's the whole story of the quest for Princess Eclair. The End. But my adventures won't end here, Bro... They'll never end... [Somehow I doubt THAT.] Blooey's comments: "Hey! You! Remember me? It's me, Blooey! Maaaan, that last battle was hairy! You have no idea! I was burnt to a crisp, but I was actually kinda relieved, if you can believe that! [Huh?] But if you want the whole story, you should just ask Luigi here! Wahahaha!" 2-H: Super Luigi Book Hear this story once you've beaten the main game and rescued Princess Peach. Actually, know what? This guy actually novelized my quest! He's been interviewing me. He was actually interviewing me here at the inn during breaks from my adventure! I didn't think anyone would be interested in reading a book about Luigi... But "Super Luigi" came out recently, and check this out, Bro: here in Rougeport... It's set a new record for consecutive weeks at number one on the best-seller list!!! [Well, will they make a Paper Luigi game out of it?] Oh ho ho ho ho ho ho ho! Hooray for Luigi, Bro! I started reading it the other day, but it's an encyclopedic account in multiple volumes... Excruciating detail, Bro. It's like a history book! ...It seemed like one, anyway. They've got it in the shop here in Rougeport. How about you snag a copy, Bro? [Heh! I've already got all five volumes.] 3: Super Luigi You waited for this, didn't you? Okay, here it is. You can buy these books from the Toad Bros. Bazaar in Rougeport. 3-A: The Quest Begins You can buy this book after breaking the curse of Twilight Town and snagging the fourth Crystal Star. Have you ever experienced a time when no matter how hard you tried, you failed, and the time you spent felt wasted? [Yeah, I did, the first time I battled the Shadow Queen.] If ever you feel such pangs of regret, try to remember this tale...the story of a young man's quest to save a sweet princess. (That was the intro. Now for the real thing.) The day dawned like any other, but little did Luigi know the letter he was about to receive would forever change his destiny. [Forever? Yeah, right.] "-Sir Luigi- Danger besets us on all sides, and we beg your help! The foul Chestnut King has stolen our treasure: our fair princess." The letter was from Minister Crepe of the Waffle Kingdom, a man aware of Luigi's many adventures. [What many adventures? Mario is much more well-known than Luigi.] He knew only Luigi could save them. Charged with this dire task, Luigi wasted no time curtailing the heroic meal he was making. Then he packed for his deadly journey. Knowing that his older, though less talented [Must be a typo.], brother was out on a no-doubt inconsequential errand, Luigi took a moment to leave a note. "Mix a Keel Mango with a Peachy Peach to whip up a Fruit Parafait." [Real Zess T. recipe!] These cryptic words were all Luigi wrote before leaving. Upon reaching the Waffle Kingdom, Luigi was greeted by pure misery, an endless flow of tears over the kidnapping of Princess Eclair. Arriving at the castle, Luigi was greeted by Minister Crepe, who carefully handed him a compass base with only one intact section. "Our land had a second treasure: the Marvelous Compass. Find its seven parts, and find Eclair." So it began... 3-B: Allies in Adventure You can buy this book after sailing to Keelhaul Key and finding the fifth Crystal Star. "It's a little warm," Luigi muttered, the sweat dripping from his brow as he followed the compass up Rumblebump Volcano's side. "Must...find...the... secret...grotto." While Luigi had guts to spare, he did need a guide, and he found one in Blooey, a Blooper he met in town. Brave Blooey joined Luigi and instantly proved to be invaluable. [Instantly? I don't think so.] With his aid, Luigi bested a savage statue that protected the treasure. That treasure was none other than a piece of the Marvelous Compass, a piece that pointed west to Plumpbelly Village. The second Luigi saw Plumpbelly Village, he knew something was amiss. All was woe, and Luigi soon learned the reason why from the mayor. The town was at the mercy of a sinister serpent, who demanded sacrificial lasses. [I don't think this mentions that the mayor's daughter is going to be one of them.] Burning with indignation, Luigi formed a team of liberators. A fierce Bob-omb warrior named Jerry joined his crew and chose, not surprisingly, to stick with Luigi for the duration of his quest for Eclair. Fortified by his allies, Luigi strode on into the lair of the beast, a foul, two-headed snake. [Named Hizza.] No time to think! Luigi sprang forth! Twin heads snapped at his heels, fangs dripping venom! Then, as one mouth gaped wide to swallow Luigi, the other crept behind... Our hero searched the treachery, and feinted before leaping! [Uh, what does "feinted" mean?] The heads collided, and the beast ate itself! The prize? A compass piece! The villagers begged their savior to stay with them, but a grim-faced Luigi pressed bravely onward. 3-C: The Voice of a Princess You can buy this book after riding the Excess Express and grabbing the sixth Crystal Star from Poshley Sanctum. Dauntless Luigi's next test came in the form of a kart race on Circuit Break Island, where he won both the contest and a compass piece. [Talk about cutting it short, eh?] The race was fraught with danger, but Luigi pressed through adversity to win! All viewers were awed by Luigi's revolutionary racing style. [I don't consider "reversing at top speed into a wall" revolutionary.] The mechanic who built Luigi's racing machine, a Buzzy Beetle named Torque, was so stunned by Luigi's race techniques that he joined him. Reinvigorated [say what?], Luigi set sail for Jazzafrazz Town, where he made his stage debut! Hayzee, a noted Dayzee producer, gave Luigi a key role. Playing the part of an earth spirit to pure perfection [what happened to grass?], Luigi stole the show. Hayzee's faith in Luigi's natural acting talents was rewarded. The performance won a prize, which yielded another compass piece. Hayzee turned from teacher to pupil, joining Luigi on his quest [as usual]. It was at this time [noooo, it was earlier] that Luigi's heart, usually draped in the cool comfort of a hero's resolve, began to warm with thoughts of Princess Eclair. This came to be because every time the magic compass pointed to a new place, her gentle words rang in her ears, touching him to his very soul. The voice spoke of eternity, of stars in the heavens. It wept for those blind to love. It gave comfort in the face of fear and loneliness. [Yeah, yeah, we get it.] Though he had never seen her, our hero was tormented by visions of this fair- hearted maiden. All he could do was press onward. The compass pointed toward Rapturous Ruins. Only two parts of the compass awaited, and Eclair had one... 3-D: The Shards of Truth You can buy this book after collecting all seven Crystal Stars. The last one is on the moon, of all places! Footsore and weary, Luigi finally found the Rapturous Ruins beyond Grimble Forest. Within them, time and space were lost in nothingness. Within the pale emptiness [and there was a lot of it!], Luigi found a young sleeping boy. Our hero called out gently [didn't he sneeze?], and the youth woke from his long, long slumber. "My name is Cranberry, and I've waited for you for the last thousand years." The boy went on to tell Luigi the secret truths of an ancient land. He said that the Marvelous Compass had been created by the ancient Luff people, who used its powers of foretelling to rule the world. But the Luff empire was then cursed by the compass, and fell into ruin... [Huh? I don't quite understand this part.] The survivors dismantled the compass and hid its pieces. Cranberry was the last of the ancient race. His role was to wait until one with a noble heart came to take the burden of the future. None but Luigi could have shouldered this weight. The boy gave him the compass piece, and said, "Fear the curse, but find your Eclair." Luigi accepted the part, the boy's words burned into his brain. His duty fulfilled, the boy began to fade into the blank nothingness... As he faded from sight, a look of joy lit Cranberry's face. As Luigi gaped, both boy and ruins vanished, leaving our hero in a dark wood. With six of the parts united, the compass now pointed to the final part... To the quest's end... To Hatesong Tower. And then, her voice spoke... Princess Eclair's voice begged for help from the void, pleading for a hero. Luigi's heart burst aflame... [Where's Screamy?] 3-E: Journey's End You can buy this book once you've beaten the main game and rescued Princess Peach. At long last, Luigi crossed the threshold of Hatesong Tower. Luigi rallied his allies. "We will defeat the Chestnut King. We must!" Friends by his side, Luigi at last faced the fell Chestnut King...but then he heard a voice, and spun to see the fair Princess Eclair. She told our hero the painful truth: the "evil" Chestnut King was actually her true love, made monstrous by Crepe in a bid for the throne. At that moment, the villainous Crepe appeared. "The Marvelous Compass, please. Hand it over, and the Luff empire will rule again! Mwa ha!" [Wow. That explains a lot.] Luigi and Co. were no match for the might of Crepe, their true enemy. But then, the compass piece in Eclair's tiara shone forth! It bestowed the future-sight on Luigi! Knowing Crepe's every move, he smote the fiend with his mallet! And with that...it was finally over. Luigi and his friends parted, leaving the Waffle Kingdom in peace. But Luigi regretted not gazing farther into the future... He longed to see the Wafflers gathering on Princess Eclair's wedding day... He wanted to see her beauty, and who stood at her side... [I was going to say something here, but now I've forgotten.] But it was not to be. Luigi went back to his humble home, which remained exactly as he had left it, a cold comfort for his heavy heart. Taking up a book he had been reading [he was in the middle of a meal when he left, not a book!], Luigi tried to read, but his long trial had sapped his strength, and he soon fell asleep. Luigi dreamt of his friends and his beloved Princess Eclair. And sleeping, Luigi spoke... "I shall return." 4: Outroduction (is that even a real word?) You have just read the stories of Luigi's adventures, just as Luigi told them to his older brother, and just as they were documented in the Super Luigi books. Once again, I thank you for your interest in my FAQ. I hope it serves you well. Don't look at me if you don't know what I'm talking about.
