The brothers Mario, Mario and Luigi, started out as plumbers in New York who, one day, stumbled through a pipe into the lands of the Mushroom Kingdom. There they were sucked into a battle between the ruler of the lands, Princess Peach Toadstool, and the evil King Bowser.

In this, and several (hundred) adventures that followed, the brother employed a variety of items to aid in their fight. Of course, these items were quite odd. The three most famous, the enlarging Super Mushroom, the fireball-casting Fire Flower, and the powerful-yet-temporary Invincibility Star, have been with the series since the beginning.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
