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.
If you haven't played Redwall AbbeyCraft: The Corsair's Last Treasure yet, we highly recommend you do, and when the server is available for all users, be sure to look for us and say hello.
Stay tuned to the Redwall Wiki, as we'll be continuing to release special Redwall-related features, the next of which you can l…

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 ferret 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.
"Then I shall begin..." started the old ferret.
The three rats and a weasel walked steadily towards the anchored ship. They were tired, and fearful, for…

- 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 >

Lokyuhb the Tyrant The fox strode down the path, his eyes shining with fear. The fox was young, just able to walk. But Waryud was no ordinary fox. From his birth, Waryud could sense enemy’s miles away. Waryud shuddered and moaned, recalling the morning’s events. Waryud had woken up, an evil scent around him. He sensed it! The horrifying stench could only be one thing: Rangelarg, the biggest and cruel fox in the land of Glangtogo. Waryud had hopped up to go warn his parents, but an evil sight greeted him. Stretched out in the den were his parents, both killed with the overgrown claws of Rangelarg! Waryud had run, faster than ever. But his brother Evarglan…
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 >
Did Krar hide the sword on the roof? No one seems to know for certain here, but it seems pretty logical since that is where it's been hidden other times. It's said to be hidden above where autumn mist rises, so it's a pretty safe bet.
But what do you think? If it was such a secret, don't you think Jacques would have revealed it?Read more >
Ah, Rufe Brush. The squirrel who was so infamously "strong and silent" in Mariel of Redwall...and then inexplicably turned into a complete wimp in The Bellmaker. Who could forget him. Or shall I say, them?
I'm here to analyze Rufe's strange personality change, and what may have been Jacques' reason for it. 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. Heck, even this wiki points it out! It offers a possible explan…Read more >

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 >
IMPORTANT: If you know about my writings and don't want to spoil the entire series for yourself or if you are not involved in the original conversation, DO NOT READ, lest you are interested and want to share any opinions.
The following in its entirety works towards connecting together all of my ideas and plots and describing how they all come together into the main plot line of the Redwall Canon.
Well first of all, my intentions as a contributor to the Redwall Wiki was to be able to write and post my ideas for “Expanding the Redwall Universe” in order to create a platform of writing that is no longer confined to a single small setting and can allow for multiple individuals to develop the timelines of various parts of the world without having…

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.
Following Lord Brocktree, Mr. …Read more >
The waves lapped against the barnacle covered hull of the Midnight Fury. It was a quiet night and that was the only sound possible to make itself heard on decks. The ferret and stoat watchmen huddled around the mast shivering in the cold. Below decks there was a better lifestyle. It was warmer and brighter for the lanterns and candles were all kept in the crew quarters. The steersman was humming to himself as he made sure the ship didn't drift off course. The lookout was unconscious do to drinking and therefore not doing the world's best job at watching. He had 3 or so empty bottles spread upon his body.

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.
After having read through my o…Read more >
(Book 1 Is Finished!) I hope you enjoy it. It's still a work in progress so it may be changing periodically and I hope it doesn't drive any one crazy but since I am doing this in my spare time it may take a week or two before it's updated so bear with me ;)
Also, I apologize in advance if their are any similarities in ideas or names other people have used... I haven't yet had the privilege of reading anyone else's stories so I promise it wasn't on purpose if you see any! I would greatly appreciate any constructive feedback! If you don't like my story then let me know how I can better it!
Thanks! And I hope you enjoy :) _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Codax the King by Brock Barnes
Key: 10 dashes indicate the begin/end of a chapter or book
- * * * indicates a pass in time within the chapter
It was a dark and stormy night. The Abbot was having a peaceful dream about his prior week; thinking of sitting beneath wonderful, blooming apple trees in the orchards. Despite all the calm serenity, there was a large crash behind him. The ancient Abbot turned his head. It was the one and only Martin the Warrior of his beloved Abbey. Without speaking the Father Abbot rose slowly and cautiously. Martin seemed to glide towards him. The mouse abbot was curious. Martin had just stood still, staring. Suddenly the warrior mouse had grown to an enormous height.
"Save the King on your doorstep!" he had yelled.

Young squirrel found on doorstep of redwall with two things: a battleaxe and a map.
A nomadic Clan of badgers on an island who are subject to the stealing if their children by giant bilge rats.
On the same island a Confederation of squirrels is without a king for the fist time in a long time. The confederation has more than fifty nations of squirrels including regular brown squirrel, Fox Squirrels, gray squirrels, red squirrels, and black squirrels.
When the young squirrel grows up he finds out his destiny is to become king of the squirrels on the island via a dream from Martin. A mouse distantly related to Matthias the Warrior joins him, along with the newly appointed Log-a-log and a stow a…

Lately I have been developing my canon for my new series, Legacy of Redwall, which puts Redwall into a much larger setting for people to develop their stories from. Firstly, I could write it beginning a setting that happens almost directly after the timeline of the original Redwall Canon while the succeeding stories occur chronologically including the revelation of other aspects in the Redwall Universe that I have come up with such as other civilizations that have helped to establish the history of the Redwall world. Otherwise, I could write the entire series chronologically beginning from my speculations concerning the Redwall spiritual world between Creation and the establishment of the species in the inner solar systems of their galaxy…
(Chapter 1: "The New Beginning") The wind howled ominously through the bare tree tops of Mossflower. Snow fluttered to the ground, covering piles of dry leaves. It was the beginning of winter, and the woodland was covered in a white blanket, which muffled the clopping of two horses hooves. Two more creatures were traveling through the snow that day, A mouse and a mouse maid. Both were wrapped in ragged, travel worn cloaks and looked tired and hungry. The maid stared at the horizon and pointed."Look at that Martin. What do you think it is?" He looked, and shook his head."I'm not sure. It seems to be a sort of heap." The gray horse muttered," I don't know what it is but I don't like the t…Read more >
Fangis the Devourer was the most feared beast in the Land of Ice and Snow, tall as a badger and vicious and cruel as the devil himself. He used a massive Claymore/Broadsword crossbreed named backbitter. He was known for the fact that he would devourer his enemy's, thus his title. He wandered the land, conquering any group of good beasts he came across.
That was why he came to attack the otters of Holt stormrunner.
“Slaughter them!” the wolverine [] roared. “And get Obsidian the swift; we can’t let him reach the rest of the otters! If he reaches the rest, they’ll rally behind him and then were all dead!”
True to his word, Fangis’s troops were vastly out skilled by the otter’s of Holt stormrunner. The only reason they had survived up to this…

Hello. This page is one of several that I've wanted to make for a while now. In this page, I hope to express my thoughts on the parts of the book that either impress me(as being well-written and coordinated) or don't make sense to me. Essentially, this is a critique/appraisal.
I will first start off by saying that whatever I might say about the book Triss that is derogatory, I still think it is a very fine book and one of Brian Jacques' "classics". I strongly recommend it as an overall well-written book.
- The first point I want to make about the book, that I consider is a/the confusing paradox of the book, involves the abilities of the character Trisscar herself. My query is this: if Princess Kurda had grown up around and using sabres and all…

I've long noticed that in the U.S., the illustrations for the books often are of things that have little meaning to do with the chapter. This is especially the case in the earlier books. Sure, there are frequently ones of characters, but considering Jacques' love for numerous, untitled chapters, there are just as many that seem rather irrelevant.
Take, for example, in Redwall, Chapter 10 of Book Two: "The Quest". In the U.S., the chapter heading is an illustration of a dog, even though those don't exist in the Redwall universe. Or what of chapter 10 of Mariel of Redwall, which appears to show a monkey in a chef's hat?
Things got better when Allan Curless took over, but they still weren't as good as the Russian illustrations. For example, what …Read more >
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 >
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.

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. Hope you all enjoy it.
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.

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, pr…

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.

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. The cape was not hooded, and it wasn't like a vimpire cape. 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. He hated that ferret with a passion. Every night he had dreams about destroying the ferret and his gang. 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. Everybeast in Gnarlspike's gang hated and feared their leader and his second in command, Growl.

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 XD

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 >

Well, here's what everyone's been waiting for: Part 2 of my essay! :) before I go any further, I'd just like to thank everyone for all the positive feedback. Always nice to hear. Anyway, where was I? Oh! The essay!!!
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 writing your fanfiction, it would help if you made your characters' goals especially personal; even the villa…

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…

I would like a drawing of Zemmerug zitspikes crew. Each one separately please. I will give details on each of them below, and I will chose the best one to put on my fanfic "The story of zemmerug zitspike". Forrestfighter already agreed to draw Zemmerug, so this will be his six surviving crewmembers. Also, i recommend you read the fanfic, its better than the first three (I know they were too fast).
First Mate Whitepaw (PS: please put their names as the caption of the pic, if you don't mind)
A white stoat. Whitepaw has a pink nose. Pink paws, and a pink tailtip. His footpaws included. He has a dagger in a dark black belt. The buckle is silver, and he has three whiskers (two right and one left) and they are bent, old, and twisted. He is slightly…Read more >
Dampdogg and Splitleg strolled through the woods. They were both stoats, and evil ones at that. They had cutlasses in their teeth, and spears at the ready. They bounded through the woodlands, kicking and chopping at the foliage as they went.
"Ahoy, matey! Oi thinks ah sees the red abbey a'ead!" said Dampdogg.
"Yer right, Dampy! 'Tis tha abbey! We gotta report ter Master Gruntfang Stingclaw et once!" Said the other stoat, as the two ran off. Then a skinny ferret, with an iron helmet and a hook in his paw, jumped down from a tree, and he landed where the two stoats had been just a moment before. The ferret landed with no sound at all, and he even got to watch the stoats run off. Good thing they never looked back!
"Chief, they's gone! We'd bes' …Read more >
