Note: Bowser does not appear. Relics are not in the game but in the story. Some parts in the story have been skipped.

Recently, a sequel has been made called Edventure 2: The 4th Relic. The heroes search for a hidden 4th relic while regaining the Crystal Stars on Earth! With help of others...

A prequel has also been released under the name "Edventure 0: Paper Edd", or Edventure 0 for short. It is a crossover with the original Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64. (Not to be confused with rcmero's fanfic Paper Ed, it is in no way related to the series.)

Due to a note on the authors profile page (see here) it is unlikely the story will be finished, unless the author grants another writer permission to finish it.



"It was most unfortunete. Eddy's scams finally got the entire neighborhood of Peach Creek into a tough spot. Durring a sailing scam, they got lost at sea, and a mysterious storm strikes and seporates the cast. Double D and Nazz awaken alone, in a boat about a half-mile from Rogueport. As soon as they land there, they get ensnared in a great adventure, and must help a man named Mario and his strange, otherworldy friends save this world from an evil empire. Can they pull this off and find their friends? Will they make it home, or are they going to remained trapped in this bizzare place? And where did all of their friends go?

As they venture forth, they discover there's much more to this world them meets the eye. Their friends, scattered amoungst the 8 areas of the world, all must also cope with their predicaments. Friends and foes are made, making room for things such as romance, fun, drama, chaos, horror, and most of all, Edventure."
