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 you fight anyways? Sounds like something out of a Role Playing Game, right? I ask this and give you this situation because of one thing; Redwall and its various tales excite the imagination! I ask this to excite your imagination and ask you if you guys could live in any time of the Redwall universe, when would it be and what would you do? I personally would love to be in the time of Martin the Warrior.
I would love to be in this point of Redwall's vast history because I would able to help change history a little if not all the way! I would to have loved to save Rose from her grisly fate (admit people. you cried when you read that she had died). also, to be able to learn how to fight from Martin the Warrior, to be able battle alongside him and get a few hits in on Badrang, who wouldn't want to be there? From the way things started to how they ended, it would be a dream come true to be there.
Now, I want to hear from you! Would point in Redwall's history would you want to be in and why? If there's a part of those events you'd want to help change, what would it be?
