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.
