be the paint and watch yourself dry

i was told recently that i cant play as a non-playable character. technically, he is right, becoz the moment you play as a non-playable character, it is technically playable.

this mfg is basically the most hipster post-modern rpg im sure somebody has done before because hipsterism is unoriginal. if there's a fat italian man trying to save a materialistic princess from a grotesque HP Lovecraft-esque fantasy, you could be the block or the anthropomorphic mushroom's shoe or the text on the screen telling you to search another castle.

we're not playing super mario brothers ofcourse. i just think it serves as a good example.

also, i suppose you could play as peach or bowser in that situation, but i'd like to think it'd be more hilarious to play as something stupid and/or obscure.

oops; mario odyssey did that too lol.

if what im trying to describe here sounds interesting, gimme a hollar on this thread. no complex character sheet or anything. though if you have an object you'd like to start as, you can reply to this thread with that.

let's do this fam.

I once had a whim and I had to obey it to buy a french horn from a second hand shop, I polished it up and I started to play it in spite of the neighbours who begged me to stop. To sound my horn, I had to develop my embouchure, I found my horn, was a bit of a devil to play. So artfully wound, to give you a sound, a beautiful sound, so rich and round. Oh, the hours I ha-ad to spend before I mastered it in the end! But that was yesterday, and just today I looked in the usual place. There was the case, but the horn itself was missing! Who? Swiped? That? Horn? I'll bet you a quid, somebody did! Knowing I found a concerto and wanted to play it afraid of my talent at playing the horn, for early today to my utter dismay it had vanished away like the dew in the morn. Tutti. I've lost that horn, I know I was using it yesterday, I've lost that horn, lost that horn, found that horn gorn! There's not much hope of getting it back though I'd willingly pay a reward. I know some hearty folk whose party joke's pretending to hunt with the Quorn. Gone away! Gone away! Was it one of them took it away? I shall tell the police! I! Want! That! French! Horn! Baaaaaack... I miss its music more and more and more, without that horn, I'm feeling sad and so forlo-orn... (oooooooh) I found a concerto and wanted to play it displaying my talent at playing the horn, but early today to my utter dismay it had totally vanished away! I practised the horn and I wanted to play it but somebody took it away, I practised the horn and was longing to play it but somebody took it away! My neighbour's asleep in his bed. I'll soon make him wish he were dead. I'll take up the tuba instead - wah wah!
