Path to Shhwonk Fortress (considered a part of Petal Meadows in the original game) is an area east of Petalburg leading to Shhwonk Fortress in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. It is a wooded area scattered with ruins and is darker than Petal Meadows.

Areas[edit]

In the first scene, Mario approaches Shhwonk Fortress when the area gets a little darker. A Star Piece can be found in the first northern clump of grass and a POW Block in a ? Block on the ground. Mario also encounters red Koopa Troopas as common enemies. He eventually passes through destroyed walls and enters some small purple ruins.

The second scene takes place inside the ruins with pedestals that hold a pair of Bald Clefts. If Mario and Goombella defeat them, the dungeon door rises up and the pair can proceed.

According to Goombella in the third scene, Mario has to be careful with HP being low, and there are a few Koopa Troopas and Goombas. This scene only has a POW Block item hidden in the bush next to the dark pink ruins entrance. The two pass through the destroyed walls again and enter some dark pink ruins.

The fourth scene takes place inside the second ruins with pedestals that hold a pair of Bristles. If Mario and Goombella defeat them, the door rises and they can continue.

In the fifth and last scene, there is the main entrance to the fortress. Along the way, the pair bump into a few enemies. They can collect the Inn Coupon behind a broken wall and next to it is a ? Block that holds another Fire Flower. At the end of the path, they can use their first Recovery block to restore HP and FP.

Area tattles[edit]

  • This path leads to Shhwonk Fortress. ...Is it just me, or is this area darker? There are enemies around, so if you feel weak, remember to take it easy, OK?
  • This is part of Shhwonk Fortress. We got a couple pedestals here. That's it. It looks pretty decent, but this place is actually insanely old, did you know that? I'd say it was built about... a thousand years ago. Yup. What vibrant ruins!
  • This is the path to Shhwonk Fortress. The air here's a bit stale, don'tcha think? Oh, yeah, and listen, Mario... Remember, you don't have to attack every enemy you see. If you have low HP, you might just wanna avoid them. That's Exploring 101, y'know?
  • This is part of Shhwonk Fortress. We got a couple pedestals here. That's it. Still, to archaeologists, this place is a gold mine. I gotta come back sometime...
  • This is the path to Shhwonk Fortress. The main entrance is just over there. There's a recovery block there, too. If your HP and FP are low, hit it, OK?
