A good story is something that needs to stick the main storyline, without getting sidetracked by things that are of little to no relevance. Yet, Brian Jacques' books, which are generally regarded as good stories, seem to do the exact opposite.
This was nicely averted in his first two books. Yes, he would show what different characters were up to. But they always connected back to the main storyline, the first being Cluny's siege on the Abbey and the Redwallers' mission to drive him away, and the second being Tsarmina's reign on Mossflower, and what the woodlander's would do to stop her. Admittedly, there was something of a side-story here, but it was relevant in that it led to the woodlanders trusting Gingivere, the first real grey characte…Read more >
Hi, my name is Paige! This is my first blog, so I am hoping I am following all of the Manuals of Style right. My future posts are mostly going to be essays. Each essay will contain a different Redwall character (or a group of characters), what they accomplished in their life, how they furthered the plot, and my own personal thoughts on the character. My hope is to get down further into the more minor characters, that are less appreciated, and of course I will do the famous ones as well. I believe that I will start off with characters from Lord Brocktree, and go in chronological order from there. Please inform me if you would like me to do a certain character specifically, or if a missed a character that you would like me to do a post on. I…Read more >
It's hard to believe, but it's been more than two years since our last entry into the Redwall Collector's community series! This one is special though, I promise.
After years of searching, I have finally located the extremely rare Redwall Calendar 1995! I've been trying to track down a copy of this item since before I even founded this website, and at long last, one is now a part of the Redwall Wiki's official library.
The Redwall Calendar 1995 is the oldest known accessory to the Redwall series. The issue with finding one is that it's a calendar - by design it's intended to be disposed of after use, and this particular calendar hit store shelves 17-18 years ago. Why would anyone still have one, and if someone did, how could it possibly be in dece…

- The force of the gale was intense, wreaking considerable damage upon the ship in the ocean far below.
- A battle was going on, Captain Cossan Birchbark knew, between ship and storm. Outside his cabin he could already hear the ship breaking up in the lashing seas. The battle was almost over, and not in his favour.
- The squirrel rushed to the deck of his beleaguered vessel just as a massive bolt of lighting struck the main-mast, causing the great ship to shudder from prow to stern. Cossan leapt nimbly out of the way as the disengaged topsail crashed to the broken deck before him, then cautiously made his way toward the for'ard cabin.
- This particular storm had lasted twelve days yet, and one thing any experienced captain knew was sometimes a beast …

The Path of the Hero
Half the City was in an uproar. Especially Druulz the High Wizard of the Keep. Something had been stolen from him. Something he had worked most of his long life to create and he was out for blood. But what enraged him the most was that even with his magical ability and all the forces of the vast city under his command, he couldn't fight but a trace of the thief. As he ranted and raved in his room at the top of Tall Tower, one young rat was satifyed. He slipped over the city wall undetected and in the gloom of first light, at the base of the city wall, he pulled out his prize. Even in the darkness, the g…

In a video update for backers of the Redwall: The Warrior Reborn adventure game project, Chris Skaggs of Soma Games mentioned a few details of the company's plan for the effort.
He stated that they want to have "three playable races," which could possibly include "mice, badgers, and squirrels."
The game will have "lots of exploration" and " will be a central aspect."
As of this writing, the Kickstarter has raised $9,281, which is a mere $1,719 away from becoming fully funded. At that time, various stretch goals for additional locations, character species, and more hours of game play will be unlocked.
If you haven't donated yet, or you just want to send more cash, the link is right here.

A Fanfic crossover I am working on.
Very upbeat music begins to play as the title comes up, saying "Long Patrol Academy 1: Redwall" as the upbeat Police Academy begins to play.
Two officers walk into Mossflower and towards Redwall, one officer was a mouse while the other was a fox, the fox looked tothe mouse. "PROCTOR.....hurry up or I come down and drag your sorry tail to our new precent, do you understand me!?" The fox glared at Officer Lt Proctor.
Proctor looked to the fox and smiles. "Oh golly sir, do we really have to be there in time for Abbot Mordalfus's feast, it won't start in the next 3 hours.....Captaine Harris, sir." the mouse cheerfully smiled at his captaine. they continued to walk towards Redwall Abbey, prepared for anything tha…

Been watching Police Academy films for sometime now, and it has given me such awesome ideas for my own little story, I am calling it Long Patrol Academy, mostly it be based on the Redwall Series and the Police Academy Series, the casting of characters will be done by me, of random Redwall Characters who be in the Long Patrol Academy Fanfic Series.
At some point I start casting characters, see who play who and see how things turn out, if anyone has ideas they like to share, don't be shy, leave ideas in a comment for this blog, and for those who read and want to be updated about the series, can inform me about it, when the story begins ^__^
Well here are a list of ideal characters I know that I might cast into the Long Patrol Academy.Read more >
There have been many instances of cannibalism in the Redwall Universe, or at least a few references to the practice.
Take Folgrim the otter, who eats the flesh of vermin, or the White Horde, who feast upon their fallen foes.
But Folgrim was insane, and the White Horde were barbarians coming from a far-off land where cannibalism was an every-day practice, so they have excuses.
But there were also moments when eating a beast that isn't from your own species seemed normal, like something all flesh-eating creatures did.
As an example, I give you Cluny the Scourge, who in the beginning of Redwall wishes his cart had stopped as he passed a field, believing that the two rabbits within the field looked like tasty morsels. Another example would be the n…Read more >
Soma Games has officially launched their much-anticipated Kickstarter project for Redwall: The Warrior Reborn, their Redwall video game effort.
They hope to raise $11,000, and while the game is being developed an interactive Minecraft map will be constructed for the community.
Rewards for donations include a name check in the game's credits, an invitation to attend a launch feast featuring Redwall cuisine, game artwork, special sculptures and more.
The company describes their "biggest goal" as "engag(ing) the kinds of fans that live and breathe Redwall."
While no new details about the game are available at this time, it would appear as if they're awaiting donor input before progressing too much.

The wind ruffled the tree tops of Mossflower. Every thing seemed peaceful, yet the blackness of a shadow lurked. The dread wildcat Verdauga was coming. He and his horde were lurking outside castle Kotir, waiting for a chance to capture it. The clever wildcat held his peace. His plans were well laid. He had nothing to fear. As soon as the opportunity arose, those silly woodlanders would never know what hit them. Inside Kotir, the woodlanders were preparing a feast in honor of king Martin's new born son, prince Luke. Kotir was Martin's castle, and he had no idea vermin were lurking outside it. Never the less, by inviting all his subjects and friends to the feast, he had given Verdauga his chance.
Verdauga sat in the shrubbery, spying on the c…Read more >

Chapter 1: Gnarlspike
Gnarlspike the Fox stood atop a large rock just outside of Mossflower Woods. He was a large and dashing figure. He had a bright yellow cape and a whip. His eyes were pure black with a white tint. He was evil in every way or manner. It was hatred for one single Ferret that drove him on. It was the beginning of the new season. Abbess Rose was going to name it later on in the day. It was a sunny afternoon but if you were in Gnarlspike's gang it would be a grey, rainy day all the time.

Well, as I'm unfortunately sparse on character ideas at the moment; I'm starting a contest for my upcoming fanfiction, which is sadly as yet untitled. It takes place about 41 years/seasons after the Rogue Crew.
As far as rules are concerned:
You may only enter one character per person.
3-4 winners will be accepted, though this'll depend on how many people enter.
No Mary Sues
And that's about it. The deadline is May 27th; so I hope to hear from you all soon, post your characters in the comments! :)
Also: I'm not ripping off Biklay Fierlan's contest of a similar nature, far from it. In actuality he's quite inspired me! XD XDRead more >
The night had crept up on the town, shadowing it and enveloping it all in hues of navy blue and violet. However, the city was not sleeping. Lights shone through windows and open doorways, casting a watery glow through the mist-enshrouded streets. At the Hell's Gate Tavern, business was thriving. The air inside was thick with the fumes of tobacco and the stench of grog and rum. A continual humming of conversation flowed as freely as the liquor sold, mingling with the sounds of somebeast scraping away on a violin and the loud, angry voice of a big brutish weasel who didn't think he needed to pay for his grog.
Seated at a circular table in a secluded part of the room several beasts sat. They swilled their grog slowly, their eyes were riveted o…Read more >

This is a section of my essay I want to put special emphasis on; as this is pivotal when writing fanfictions or just writing in general. Now, in Brian Jacques' original Redwall series; villains tended to have simple goals to drive their ill-matched visions of power and ambition, and villain backgrounds and personal information tended to be fairly rare. When writing your fanfiction this does not have to be the case.

When I was a young ratjack
I joined the crew of the Blackjack
To sail the foaming main
The bos'n was a fat old rat
The Cap'n was called Grimy Nat
But both of them were slain

That'd lay out 'arf the crew
An' yer'd think yew'd gone insane!
Rigg the fox called a mutiny
Sent the first mate to the bottom of the sea
An' said "He ain't comin' back again!"
One dark night while all were a-bed
We crashed into a reef, they said
An' it caused us so much pain
The ol' Blackjack sank like a stone
None survived but I alone

All right, I've been virtually inactive here recently due to the wiki's general activity, but I thought I'd put something up for any future new users to look at, and it's certainly been far too long since I've done an essay here (The last one I posted was in the fall of 2011! Nearly 2 years ago!)
Not sure if I'm going to add more; though the first section is going to be about villains, so without further ado let's begin.
I've noticed that quite a lot of users here seem to have pine martens as their story's main villain; which is ironic given that Brian Jacques (may he rest in peace) only ever used three over the course of the series. That being said, we don't really have a clear idea of what creatures of this species are typically like (Sinc…

The snow fell in deep drifts upon Redwall Abbey. For the abbey creatures,it was the time for tales and feasting, a time to enjoy all they had worked for during the spring, summer, and fall. There was to be a feast that night, and no beast could have been more excited then young Matthias. He had convinced his mentor and adopted mother, Sayna, to tell her story when one was called for. Matthias stood on the north wall looking in that direction dreaming of what it must have been like for Sayna when she was a young warrior. Now she was Redwall's infirmary sister. Matthias sighed. He knew no beast would believe her, because her tale was so strange. Suddenly the young mouse's daydream ended. He heard the thud of a hoof on the wall top stairs. A…Read more >
Last June, we announced the debut of the Redwall: The Adventure Game project, an officially-licensed video game that was going to feature a new contribution to the Redwall mythology.
Unfortunately, we haven't had any real updates since that time, and their Facebook page indicated that they were facing financial challenges. As with many Redwall-related projects in the past, it was difficult to see what was going to happen.
Yesterday evening, Soma Games announced their partnership with the other developers. The Oregon-based company is responsible for producing various apps and games such as Wind Up Robots and Bok Choy Boy, and their largest title, Stargate Gunship, is scheduled to launch in the near future.

In the heart of Mossflower Woods, by an old path now overgrown with weeds, sat the ruins of a large building. Crumbling outer walls surrounded a sprawling area covered with trees, an orchard that had run rampant with no one to tend it. A small pond sat on the grounds, untouched by any creature but the fish that lived in it. The main gates and the large gatehouse beside them had long ago rotted away, as had the three smaller doors in the walls.
At the center of this ruin lay an abandoned abbey, beautifully carved from red sandstone. Sadly, the place was empty of any life but that of insects and scavenger birds, and was slowly but surely being worn away by time. Plants now grew over much of the structure, and none more prevalent than an overg…

Chapter One: Musdet the Wild
"GLUGG!!!!" Shouted Musdet the Wild.
"Yes M'lady?" Asked Glugg.
"Gather the army we're going questing."
And with that Musdet the Wild left Jakein Castle to go questing. They traveled by ship because Jakein was on the Northwestern Coast. The ship was called "Lady Gallaman". Musdet was an evil Wildcat. Her army completely consisted of rats. The Lady Gallaman was the biggest ship in the north. They were heading south. They wanted to conquer the lands around the fabled Great South Cliffs. The Journey would be long and restless. Musdet might have to sacrifice some idiotic vermin in her vast army named the "Redcoast Army". She enjoyed conquering. It always brought slaves.

Burglebuber Sixclaw walked threw the meadow. It was an early summer's day. Everybeast except him was happy that morning. He was having problems getting to Mossflower Woods. His horde, dubbed the "Blood Horde", were lagging and complaining. "Can't we stop here chief?" asked a tired Wormer.
"No you can't lazyskull" Replied Burglebuber with a snap.
"But chief I'm tired!" Said an angry Chickenscale.
"SHUT UP OR I'LL HAVE YOUR GIZZARDS FOR LUNCH!!!!!!!!!" Yelled Burglebuber. There was immediate silence. The Blood Horde marched on. Eventually they found a cliff. It was a dizzying hight. Even Burglebuber felt uneasy just looking at it. Several of his hordebeasts groaned. On the top off the cliff was a desert. "We're …Read more >

A Tale of Redwall
There aren't enough Sparras in Redwall! So I've decided to do some fanfiction, featuring the Sparrows! A Sparra King disappears, and the abbey is under attack. Fiero Nightwing goes in search of him, and tries to discover the secret of the woods. What force is plaguing the abbey?
Menador, a large weasel, ran through the forest. He must reach Fectasata, Queen of the Wood, before the sun rose! Behind him he could hear something, what was it? Redwallers! He ran faster, hoping to be safe soon. Behind him the sounds were getting closer. Suddenly, in front of him, he saw a flash of white. Strong claws pinned him to the ground, and he saw the face of a Sparrow, but then the Sparrow raised his beak. Menador would never …

It was green and bright and the sun was shining down on the Abbey of Redwall. It was the day of a feast, the Abbot's feast. Matthias sat in the orchard, soaking up the sun. Mattimeo didn't come around much these days and it got lonely living here by himself. He liked this spot on this old log where the sun came down just right. Right now his thoughts were on something good to eat and he couldn't wait for the feast tonight. There would be apple crumble and tarts and scones with meadowcream, he just knew it! He wished Matti and the grandkids would come and visit their old grandfather but kids are too busy these days.
But out in Mossflower Woods, there was also a old creature sitting on a rock and thinking to himself. He was a fox and he was s…Read more >
A bright sun shone from a sky of pale blue, sending shafts of golden light down into the forests of Mossflower woods. There was a chill in the air, heightened by the lack of foliage on the stately oak, elm and beech. Occasionally dotted between the bare trees stood pines, almost smug in their heavy green leaves. The floor of Mossflower wood was dappled from the light, dark shadow regularly lit up by the golden glow. As the sun moved slowly towards its zenith the birds came alive, each one adding its voice to the dawn chorus.
Standing upon Redwall's ramparts was the Abbot of the Abbey, Father Shamrock. The small otter had his paws tucked into his green habit sleeves to keep them from the chilly air. Beside him stood a burly hedgehog,…Read more >
This week, I prepared a classic beverage for the Redwall Cooking series: October Ale.
Now, this recipe suggests that either ginger beer (this is a non-alcoholic beverage) or ginger ale can be used, however as I'm not the biggest fan of ginger beer, and could only find it sold in 6-pack form, I personally could not justify purchasing it. I would have had 4-5 bottles sitting around that I would never end up drinking, thus I went with ginger ale.
The recipe also does not specify as to whether dark or white grape juice should be used, I chose white grape juice.
The beverage itself tastes like a sparkling grape drink, much like a sparkling apple cider. I thought the grape flavor was a bit strong, as I really envision this drink in the series to be…Read more >

Hello everyone, tis been some time since i've visited this site last.
I would like to make it known that, regrettably, I will be abandoning my fan fictions on this site. This would encompass Ice Queen, Haunted and Vengeance for the Beloved. Anyone who wishes to adopt any one of these works can leave a message on my wall here, and I will get back to them as soon as I can. If there is no response within the remainder of this month and that of February, I will permanently remove the afore-said fanfictions from this site.

As it's winter time, and cold in many places of the world, I've chosen the first entry in our Redwall Cooking series to be none other than Hotroot Soup!
However, there is a major disclaimer here: I don't like shrimp. At all. So as a replacement ingredient, I chose chicken.
As I was cooking just for myself and the recipe serves two to four people, I halved the amounts of leeks, onion and potatoes required. Even though I did this, there was still more than enough vegetables in the dish - in fact, each bite contained more vegetables/meat than actual liquid.
I found the soup to be very tasty, although I think if you want it to be very spicy, you need to have a very heavy hand with the chili pepper. I put in slightly more than the recipe called fo…Read more >
This is an allegorical story about the implications of dictatorship and non-progressive industry. Do not assume that weasels, ferrets, and other bad beasts are bad here; species will be used with liberty.
King Elgum was a portly weasel, and he lived in a castle; nothing remarkable about that. He was the sole ruler, with no Magna Carta to control him. Still, nothing remarkable about that. What is remarkable is his punitive system. An armada of lictors would dress in commoner garb and mingle with the people, noting their transgressions. Recording them continuously, each year, they would meet and create punitive sentences for each individual, which were then approved by the king with his trademark seal, Aquila Magna: an eagle striking down on …

It's a new year, and we are introducing a new feature series here at the Redwall Wiki. As this is being written, The Redwall Cookbook is en route to our library here at HQ.
In the interest of producing more content, which as there has been very little news has been quite difficult, we will be launching a new feature series.
In the past, many Redwall home cooks have prepared dishes inspired by the Redwall series, some of whom who have been kind enough to share and upload the recipes and pictures.
However, we have not heard of anyone preparing every single dish in The Redwall Cookbook for consumption and review. And it is to that end we are taking up this task just for our readers, fans, contributors, editors and followers.

Snow fell from the sky and covered the ground, giving Mossflower Wood the appearance of a frozen kingdom. The sharp wind blew the snow around, creating a perfect whiteout. This winter was the coldest winter that old Abbot Laric could remember. However, he didn't know whether this was because of the snow, or the old age that had made his body frail. Abbot Laric, a simple mouse, liked to look out of the beautiful Redwall Abbey's windows during the winter and think about days gone by. He loved the snow when he was a dibbun, but now in his old age he could not enjoy the fun that the winter brought. Suddenly, Abbot Laric saw a silhouette beyond the stream of snow.

One may ask what this story has to do with Redwall. This story is meant to be an introduction to a long series that I plan on writing which focuses on sharing my ideas concerning the universe that I have placed the Redwall World into in my mind. Although one may find this story having been placed in a modern setting, the idea is that we have this characer, Recorder Dan, who is a mouse who happens to be the descendant of an old Recorder of Redwall who lived during a war that occured around Redwall between 1530 and 1614 A.D. Some users tend to say that the Redwall world doesn't or shouldn't have any years, yet my use of years is to signify my attempt at representing the original Redwall Canon as a Medieval Age of the Redwall World in which …

Disclaimer: This is a rather dark story (as I am bad at writing cheerful ones) and will be quite horrifying/disgusting/whatever. Just a heads up.
This runs parallel to my other story "The Shadow Jester" and characters may and will interact from the two novels.
I consider there to be five states of mind; five layers, so to speak. The first is the one of normality, that most creatures reside in; nothing to mention about it really, so let’s move on. The second stage is one that I consider “normal” madness (as normal as madness gets). It ranges through a huge variety of symptoms, but you can easily tell when one resides in this layer. Creatures are normally born with this madness, and very rarely do events in one’s life cause someone to ascend t…

Redwall Wiki Turns 7
The Redwall Wiki officially marks its 7th anniversary online today, and we'll keep the announcement short and sweet.
While it appears as if there are no new Redwall novels on the horizon any time soon, it does look like fans will receive a story in the near future in the form of a game. Hopefully, we'll have more updates in regards to that project soon.
We've been online for almost a decade now, and it's been a great run. As long as there are fans of Redwall, we aren't going anywhere. There is still fan artwork and fan fiction to be shared.
Thanks to those who have stuck around over the years, you're what make this website what it is.Read more >
(Here it is, and I hope it has been worth the wait. Here is the Chapter 9, the first segment of Book 2: A Warrior's Ghost, from "The Warrior's Spirit)
Mother and daughter clung fast to one another, shuddering more with each intense noise that crept into their ears. Joya Humquill stroked her child's headspikes gently, trying to keep the fearful weeping hushed. Nightmarish visions appeared in her mind of what their tormentors would do if they were found. Her husband had gone out to defend their home, and had not returned to them. "What have we done to deserve such dreadful times?" she thought to herself. But corsairs only care about their greed, never caring for the innocent creatures whose blood was spilled to pay for their avarice.

The old squirrel sat dozing peacefully in the fire warmed expanse of Redwall's Cavern Hole. Sighing contentedly, she snuggled deeper into her large plush armchair. The fire crackled and spat, eagerly consuming the birch logs within the grate. The squirrel noted it all in silence, satisfied to simply let the stillness reign.
The slight pitter-patter of paws, however, heralded the end of her reverie. Feeling a slight weight in her lap, the aged creature slowly opened her eyes, smiling at the curious gaze of the youngster sitting atop her knees. Two other Dibbuns (for this was the name given to the abbeybabes) sat upon the arms of her chair, watching her expect…

Recently while rereading Mossflower, I came upon two unfamiliar names: Thrugg the Strong and Arrowtail, friends of Martin the Warrior. This is their story.
Lilian Darkpaw, daughter of Ranguvar Foeseeker.
Martin could not believe his eyes.
In the twelve seasons he'd been a slave at Marshank, he had never seen anybeast attack Badrang the Tyrant.
Yet here was this squirrel, and she was actually beating Badrang.
Worse yet, she was one of Martin's best friends, Arrowtail.
Martin knew why Arrow was trying to kill Badrang.
The young mouse thought back to the day he had first met Arrowtail and their old friend Thrugg...

I first of all want to apologize to my readers who have been waiting for the next chapter of "The Warrior's Spirit." All number of events have come and gone in my life, and I will strive to have the next chapter up by the end of September.
Secondly, the story itself has undergone all number of minute changes due to computer issues. Hopefully, you will be pleased with the events of Ch 9.
Finally, I hope I haven't lost any followers of this story. What with the death of Brian Jacques, it's up to his fans to keep Mossflower Wood, Salamandastron, and the Great Abbey of Redwall alive so future readers do not miss out on the captivating world Brian created.

In my last story, I mentioned that there were only three books in the BGS series, but there are a whole lot more. I'll just state that it's in the series in my little introductory note every time.
Tabitha picked up her father’s bow. Why shouldn’t she learn to shoot?
Silently, she slid from the house and went to the targets her brothers used to practice.
She knelt down and notched an arrow on the bowstring.
Then she fired.
