It's been many months since we've heard news from Soma Games as to the status of Redwall: The Warrior Reborn, which was originally scheduled for release some time this year.
Chris Skaggs has posted a new blog in which he discusses a number of obstacles that have come up since the conclusion of the Kickstarter in 2013, mainly tons of paperwork.
Upon realizing perhaps they were thinking too small, Soma has now released a pitch seeking additional financing and new partners. They're asking for $1.2 million.
What isn't 100 percent clear is if game development will continue if the requested funds are not raised.
It also appears as if the general direction of the game has changed too, but Soma is keeping mum on that for now.
Unfortunately, there are no…

I've noticed that a character's page usually contains a main image, and maybe (if another is available) one or two others.
However, multiple images exist for some characters. So I suggest we put a complete selection of images at the bottom of the page. Argulor (talk) 05:06, September 2, 2014 (UTC)Read more >

Oh boy. Here we go again. Earlier this year, Working Element, a production company helmed by Darren Thomas, announced that Redwall was in its portfolio.
On June 26, an IMDB page for a Redwall movie popped up with a 2014 release date. Digging a bit deeper, it is listed under "optioned" status, with the following summary attached:
Matthias, a young mouse, embarks on a quest to recover a legendary sword to save Redwall from Cluny the Scourge.
Let's turn to Wikipedia for a moment:
In the film industry, an option is a contractual agreement between a potential film producer, such as a movie studio, a production company or an individual, and a writer or third party who holds ownership of a screenplay. The agreement details the exclusive rights, including…

Moments ago, two eBay auctions ended on some rare Redwall TV Series production artwork. The Redwall Wiki had hoped to acquire at least one for its site library, however it was not meant to be. The opposing bidder either jumped in during the last minute or used a sniper program to win - large bids went in on both pieces with approximately 30 seconds to go for each auction, making it difficult to counter. Both auctions closed at $122.50.
The pieces of art are clearly pre-final production. The first is pencil artwork from Season 1, Episode 13, and consists of the finale battle sequence involving Cluny the Scourge and Matthias. I've included the actual scene above for comparison - you'll note Cluny's cape does not have a hole in …Read more >
On June 5, 2014, Random House released a new 576-page paperback edition of Redwall with new jacket artwork, and possibly new interior art. The book was published by the Vintage Children's Classics imprint of the publisher for the UK.
Of interest, the marketing copy for the book states that "In the Backstory
As of June 17th, we have identified the cover artist and illustrator. The cover artist is Dermot Flynn, who is known for food artwork. There are also new chapter headings, courtesy of Rachael Hare. Rachael posted quite a few of the illustrations in her online gallery, which you can view here.
The following summary is attached to the publication:

This piece is based on part of Chapter 2 of Outcast of Redwall, with the bassoon representing Sunflash the Mace, the French Horn representing Skarlath, and both instruments taking turns here and there to represent the environment and/or the general feel of the situation that these two character find themselves in.
Skarlath and Sunflash have managed to escape from Swartt Sixclaw, and they've just finally stopped for a rest in the snow at a clearing in the forest after running all night long. Now they consider their new-found freedom and what to do next. The piece ends as they leave the clearing and begin their long quest to take Swartt down.

This piece has been a long time in the making. The inspiration for it came back in March of last year while I was watching Martin the Warrior. The material I wrote that day has been sitting around on my computer since then, waiting until I could find the time and energy to figure out where it was supposed to lead.
The idea behind this is to express the joy of all the liberated beasts from Marshank as they arrive in the free land of Noonvale for the first time. There is safety, and beauty, and a promise of a life of happiness which some of the newcomers have never known for as long as they've been alive.
Noonvale is also the home of Rose, and for her family and friends--and especially for Ma…Read more >
It was morning on the cold seas west of Mossflower Country. Tarak the fox woke and stretched. Throwing on a cloak, the tattooed corsair yawned and opened his cabin door. A gust blew in, chilling the fox. "Ahoy, Bladetongue, any of that brekkist left fer me?" The rat lookout called down from the crow's nest, "Aye, matey, if wot yer lookin' fer is last night's roasted fish." Cursing, Tarak made his way to the galley. Booting aside a cook, he grabbed a loaf and slashed it in half with his dagger. The fox ripped a chunk ofRead more >
Deep in Mossflower a group of vermin sat around a fire. There were ten of the vermin in all, bandits from the northlands. Three foxes, four rats, two weasels, and a ferret made up the band. They were feared and they robbed passing innocents on the much-used path. The leader of the scrappy band, a fox called Sharptail, picked up a roasting fish on the fire and bit into it, spitting out the bones here and there. "Any o' that ale left, Dripear?" he asked. The rat in question replied, "Nah, Chief. Ole One-eye an' Blueclaw quaffed the lot yesterday." The fox Sharptail cursed and bit again into the fish. He was about to finish his meal when there was a noise by the path. The big fox froze. He whispered to his gang. "Did'ye hear that, mates? Some…Read more >
Excerpt from the journal of Brelyna the squirrelmaid, Abbey recorder, great grand-niece of Lady Amber the squirrelqueen.It's been many seasons since the Great Mossflower War that my great great grand-aunt Amber battled in. Peace has reigned over Redwall Abbey and Mossflower, peace that our ancestors strove to form. Mossflower is now a golden place, full of laughing, singing creatures. Redwall is as great as ever. Our Abbot is very young for a typical Abbot. He's a mouse and his name is Drew. Abbot Drew is friendly and kind, but an unusual Abbot. He helps in the fields, tends the Abbey pond, and even helps our Friar, George, with the kitchenwork. I can smell the scones that they baked this morning from here. I'm not really used to writi… Read more >
It had been many seasons since that day. Blackclaw the weasel remembered the banishment well. Those woodlanders had chased the Kotir soldiers off like pesky flies. Now they had to move to the southlands. They'd built their own homes out of timber that they'd collected from the north pinewoods. The former soldiers now lived in a farming lifestyle, one that Blackclaw hated. "Raaagh!" Farmers! thought Blackclaw. Useless! The weasel glanced around at his cabin. He walked to the door and opened it, entering. Blackclaw approached his room and opened his wardrobe. There it was, his Thousand Eye armor. Alongside it was his blade, a sword, slightly blued, and his shield, with the emblem of old Verdauga, the thousand eyes. Putting the armor back in…Read more >

He came to us a beast of the wild, untamed and mad
Yet He was soon reborn as a Lord to us
His kindness eternal and wisdom endless
Before him would come both bandit and bishop, united before Him
His love was given to all, and with it we prospered
In His time we knew there could only be joy
For He was The Vulpuz, Lord of the Earth
- -Ancient Verse, found in ruins of Loamhedge Abbey
Barely a season had passed since Russano had come to Salamandastron and taken his place as Badger Lord and in the time since then he had taken on every last plan to improve the mountain fortress that had come to him, not refusing a single sane request. There were hares running all around the mountain, carrying all sorts of building supplies and equipment heading off to aid …

This is a fan fiction story by User:Astar Goldenwing. It is not considered canon, nor is it a policy or guideline.
This is a side story to my fan fiction called ‘For Freedom’ and it tells the tale of Skvold Sharkslayer and how he received his title. The following events take place forty seasons before events of ‘For Freedom’, twenty five seasons before events of ‘Triss’ and countless generations after events of ‘Mariel of Redwall’. This story is best to be read after chapter 20 or later of my fan fiction ‘For Freedom”, though because of the long time gap between it and the main story it could be read first as well.
In this story, one season equals one year.
Feel free to comment at the end and correct mistakes if you want.

Chris Skaggs of Soma Games recently participated in an interview with Intel in which he discussed a bit about the upcoming Redwall: The Warrior Reborn game.
- "We're very interested in taking the RealSense™ technology, especially the new facial tracking, and being able to map a player's face right onto the character. So if you're playing a mouse or a squirrel or a mole, you'll be able to see your expressions and you'll be able to voice the lines. And it'll show up in the game on the character. So we can rig the character's face to move with your face. And we think that'll be a big play for these characters that people really love."

As the title of this essay states, this essay is to help you imagine Redwall in real Life!
Picture if you will walking down the highways and byways of Mossflower (where mossflower is I'll let you discern), and suddenly you see Redwall Abbey in front of you, gates open wide for you. Once inside, you see the human forms of everyone from the Redwall universe (pick any novel) greeting you making you feel at home. This is the type of thing happening to you in real life. The times you'd have, right? Now, picture if you will, at some point Martin telling you that it's destiny that you save the Abbey from danger! What do you do? Save the abbey or let it burn? Obviously, you'd save the abbey, but what if you had zero combat training, like me? Would …Read more >

Colonel Montclarcy McClane of the 7th Battalion of the Long Patrol of Salamandastron strode up to one of the groups of the battle-hardened defenders of Redwall, his ivory-topped cane tucked beneath his arm and his brushed mustachios blowing in the wind.
Snapping to attention and clicking his heels together, the hare proudly saluted the four Redwallers, a mole, a squirrel, and two otters.

Okay before I start I learned about ferrets from reading the redwall books. It wasn't until a few years later when I was doing research for a school paper that I discovered the truth about ferrets. They're actually really sweet and friendly creatures. They love to play and get along well with other animals. Sure their names mean 'thieving weasel" and they are known to take chicken eggs in the wild but they're not evil creatures. ALSO they're related to otters and I believe badgers too so WHY are ferrets bad guys and otters and badgers aren't? Why did Brian make them evil with only like three exceptions? It bothers me since I LOVE ferrets and they make awesome pets.Read more >
This is a short story I wrote for a fan fiction contest on the official Redwall forum. It tied for second place in the contest. There are spoilers for the The Sable Quean, so if you haven't read that, don't read this fic!
The mountain Salamandastron reared majestically into the morning sky. It had stood throughout the ages as the domain of Badger Lords and the hares of the Long Patrol, a symbol of right and good, and justice for all innocent creatures.
Buckler Kordyne, the young Blademaster, was heading down to the mess hall for breakfast. He could hear the chatter coming from the hares seated around the tables. The young hare was just about to enter the mess hall when he heard a commotion behind him.
Buckler turned to see two young …

As we all pretty much know, most, if not all, Redwall novels have had the foxes/vixens in them, but there's one thing they have in common; they're portrayed as either the villains (in the case of Marlfox) or as the villain's lackeys, most skilled warrior(s), etc. I bring forth an argument that I'm pretty sure is gonna be deemed as the most stupidest, least thought-out theory you've ever read; Foxes/Vixens could just as well be the hero/heroine as any other race in the whole entire Redwall universe.Before you say or think to yourself, "what's this idiot saying?" just hear me out! In The Outcast of Redwall, the hero was a ferret, which is a typical classic Brian Jacques villain class. He was seen as the villain until he sacrificed himself … Read more >

The mighty Lord who owns the blade,
And acquaintance of old,
Will war long with the Lord self-made,
Where sun turns sea to gold.
The warrior maid with golden fur,

Lingers sorrow black as night.
Whoever hears and heeds this cry,
To march off into war,

Whose blood will stain this shore?

The mink, moonlight dancing off his dark fur, pressed the cold blade against Colonel Collin Mulberry's throat. The elderly hare gave a grunt, trying to pull him off, and the mink's smile widened, displaying stunningly white fangs.
Putting all his weight upon his victim, immobilizing him, the mink chuckled. It was a cheery, carefree kind of sound, reminiscent of fine wines and the company of friends. It could not have been farther from the truth.
"Ye look tired, matey. Ye've fought long an' 'ard, widout food. Lemme give ye yore rest."
With a flick of one muscular paw, he carved a straight line across the hare's throat. With a cold shudder, the last hare of the Long Patrol lay back against the cold beach rock, and died.

Happy holidays everyone! In our 8th anniversary release, I promised in coming weeks a new feature would be coming. I am pleased to announce that it is here! Unfortunately, it took longer than I anticipated because the package I was expecting was shipped from China!
Since 2011, I've been attempting to verify the alleged 28 languages (source) that Redwall is supposed to be translated into. Now, we've officially uncovered 23 of them, with the new addition of Chinese.
While conducting a deep search online, I found the Chinese editions, which are called Red City Kingdom. There are a few different versions of several of the books, and I acquired two of them. Actually receiving them proved to be difficult, which I’ll soon discuss. Now, when you see the…Read more >
In the backstage of the theater; secluded by musty, tattered old velvet curtains, Nialla sat at a polished hardwood table, running a bristled comb through her smooth black fur and sighing a bit.
Another mundane, sub-par day at work. How had she expected anything more or less? The old saying went, do what you want for a living and you’ll never have to work until the day you die; but lately Nialla was having less and less positive feelings about her current line of work. What with the lower and lower turnout of decent customers, and the ever-increasing number of males who would show up for the sole purpose of wolf-whistling and eyeing her body, one could not blame the otter for considering quitting.
Across from her, a friend of Nial…

Redwall Wiki Turns 8
Today, the Redwall Wiki officially celebrates its 8th anniversary!
While Redwall Online Community activity has dwindled over the past few years, we're proud to be here and still serve as an active website and hub for Redwall fans across the globe.
This year, Redwallers truly went above and beyond by donating to the Soma Games Redwall: The Warrior Reborn Kickstarter, which achieved more financing than they were seeking.

Three sentence stories for every Redwall book except The Rogue Crew because I haven't read it yet.
Easing back into the Redwall fandom, here's my first official contribution in a long time. I invite you to try and match the sentences with the books. Some are fairly easy, such as the Outcast of Redwall sentence. First to correctly guess them all gets a three-sentence story based on the book, character, or pairing of your choice. Heck, I might even accept requests. This is a new thing- I've never done three-sentence novels before, so bear with me, mates.
Again, these are off the top of my head, from what I remember of the books. So if I’m wrong about anything, then please correct me!
Somewhere along the way, they threw aside their good memories. Hi…

The old weasel opened the door. His den was a little cave with a wooden door on a mountain-side. He stumbled into his house. Waiting for him, was Abbott Cornelius, two stoats, two rats, and some babes. Silverfur the Otter and Furback the Squirrel, both very old, were also in the den. The old ferret settled down into an armchair.
"Burglebuber! Yer 'ere at last! Can ye tell us a story now?" asked a young squirrel, Furback's own son, named Maplebark. Burglebuber chuckled.
"Aye, I can liddle Maplebark. That is, if yer pater approves" said Burglebuber, as he looked up at Furback, who nodded gently.

- It started several years back, around the year 2006. Our family lived in
Jacksonville, North Carolina, at the time. My older brothers were into this book series
called Redwall that a few other families attending our church were also interested in.
These books told tales of brave and heroic animals such as mice, fighting for peace and
freedom against evil, cruelty, and tyranny. These tales revolved around an old sandstone
fortress called Redwall Abbey—a place of safety for those in need of a shelter. Redwall,
a haven of peace surrounded by the vastness of Mossflower woods; an envied dream to many
defeated warlords. It might sound childish, but my brothers loved it, and because I
wanted to do what they did, I tried to like this Redwall ser…

Part 1: The Rat
He strode boldly through the knee-high grass, eyes set on the target before him; a tall, well-muscled ferret holing a falchion. The ferret launched an overhead hack, and it was countered by two wide bladed dirks, crossed in an x. He threw the ferret's sword back, and stepped back, making the ferret seem more skilled than it was with a blade. The ferret yelled and threw the falchion, missing by a wide margin. The ferret tried to run, but he was to late. His throat was expertly slit, instantly killing the beast. A cheer rose from the side, about twenty feet away, mixed with several groans. "He's done it again, beating a larger 'east with ease. Gold and cheers for Cluny de mighty!" exclaimed a very large rat n…Read more >

Argulor, the eagle from Mossflower, is obviously my namesake, and is so because he is a favorite character of mine. He is obviously one of the great birds of prey in Jacques' series; they are usually my favorite, and thanks to the series, I really like crows, ravens, hawks, and such. I once thought it would be good idea to have birds be a creature added to The Tribes of Redwall, but that obviously isn't happening now since The Tribes has been discontinued.
Anyways, why do I like Argulor? He's obviously a very old guy who's had a history of being a fearsome predator, and yet he's not really a villian, either---it's just in his nature. A lot of people consider Asmodeus to be this as well, but Asmodeus comes across as having a much darker nature, …Read more >

I remember totally liking Rufe when I read Mariel of Redwall, so when I heard he was going to be on the quest in The Bellmaker (yeah, I sorta looked ahead), I was excited to see him again. But...I was disapointed, yet could not figure out why. It wasn't until someone pointed out the HUGE difference between the Rufe in Mariel of Redwall to the Rufe of The Bellmaker that I realized why.

I'm here to talk about Martin II. When, in Mattimeo, we first here about him being the newborn son of Tess Churchmouse and Mattimeo, it is a great setup for the story of a new hero. Martin II sounds like a very promising warrior-to-be.
But when we got to know him years later in Pearls of Lutra, he was a huge disapointment! No, it wasn't because he was a bad warrior---he was as courageous and strong as his namesake, Matthias, Mattimeo, and every other hero in the series. No, it was because he was so flat out BORING AND UNORIGINAL.
First off, there is his name to consider. Upon reading about "Martin", it is just weird reading about a mouse who feels like he should be Martin the Warrior, but isn't. Second, he had no distinctive personality. He was …Read more >
I have been very frustrated over the years that characters such as the cook in Outcast of Redwall, for instance, don't receive articles simply because they are not given names Yet characters who have just as little significance, if not less, still receive them if they do have names. It's a policy I highly disagree with.
I'm particularly frustrated that there is no article for Gerul's mother. No, she never appears, but Gerul quotes her so often that she practically has an impact on the story, and when someone is brought up so frequently, it just feels wrong to disclude them.
I'm not sure if this is the place to write about this, but I personally want to make a proposal that characters who get speaking lines should get a page of their own. Gerul'…Read more >
It's sad that the Redwall series has only gotten two direct sequel books---we frequently have to keep adjusting to new casts of characters, although during the later books it got particularly bad, as Jacques didn't seem to want to bring anybody back. Still, in the sequels, in which the same cast did return, Jacques still failed to bring back the entire cast.
Mattimeo managed to include most of the cast of Redwall that survived, although there were two very glaring omissions---Dunwing and Mr. Squirrel. In the final chapter, the former is confirmed to have survived, and the latter is implied to have. Yet neither is even so much as mentioned---it's as if Jacques forgot about both. Whereas someone pointed out that sparrows might age quicker than other…Read more >

The Redwall series is one of, if not the, longest running series of 300+ page books by just one author that I am aware of. Although I consider Brian Jacques a fantastic writer, I personally find it strange that he continued writing them for so long. I suppose I should go over the series to explain what I mean.
Redwall, published in 1986, was a fantastic book for kids. Brian did write a direct sequel three years later, but before that, he did something unexpected---he gave us a prequel telling us the history of how the Abbey came to be. Over the next decade or so, Brian continued to give us more fantastic prequels and did another sequel (to one of the prequels). But, post 2000, things started going rather downhill.

I recently found through the history of edits, that this edit to [talk page] a talk page a long time ago...
"I don't get it. Matthias is supposedly 13 years old, and Jacques states that Warbeak is the same age. Makes sense, right?
...HOWEVER, If you read Redwall very carefully you'll learn that GT (Greytail) was killed just the spring before the summer of the late rose, in which the events in Redwall are set. Warbeak hatched AFTER Gt died, and thus would only be ONE season old. Addtionally, this would make Matthias only one season old, and how the two friends could have suffered all those injuries and adventures at that young an age (presuming a season counts as a "year") just isn't logical. They would be too young to understand bloodshed. P…

The Warlord Guide: What and What NOT to Do For the Aspiring Conqueror #4: The Company You Keep
Hello, everyone out there who is still out there. On a whim I decided to check out this site again and read through my old blog posts for the nostalgic value. This series here was definitely my defining moment on this site, and I did have some neat insights, but I don't think I came up with enough.
I've come a long way as a writer since then, but my frustration with the ineptitude of Redwall Villains has stayed the same, or, if anything, intensified. I'm not sure if I really feel the initiative to continue this series, but I do have enough left in me to write another guide for all of you aspiring conqueror's out there.
