Dry Dry Desert
Ads keep the MarioWiki independent and free :)
Dry Dry Desert is a vast hot desert in the Mushroom Kingdom. It appears as a major location in Paper Mario, where the second chapter takes place. Mario gets there by using the Dry Dry Railroad and climbing Mt. Rugged in Chapter 2. Mario can find Kolorado and his research team in the first area he enters. After exploring the desert a bit, they visit the desert town of Dry Dry Outpost. After talking to Moustafa and receiving the Pulse Stone, Mario must search the hot desert to find Dry Dry Ruins. Many side-quests, badges and items are available in this large desert.
The desert is a 7x7 grid of smaller areas, or 49 panels, with a straight road running through the middle of it. The Mt. Rugged exit is on the west (D1), while the Dry Dry Outpost is on the east (D7). The oasis (F7) can be found 2 screens south of the screen just before Dry Dry Outpost, which is all the way to east.
Below are the 3 Star Pieces found in this area, in the order of which they may be obtained:
If Mario gets caught by a Tweester, it will deposit him one screen north and one screen east of his location.
In addition to the items listed below, others such as Dried Fruits may be dropped by enemies.
This section is organized tile-style with A1 being the northwestern corner and G7 being the southeastern corner. Alphabetical characters run north-south and numbers run west-east.
