No problem, Indi-Rah. :)

By the way... If Roth is now a General, does that means he outranks Brigadier General Matthew Connelly and is supreme commander of the Long Patrol?

And one more question. During the time we play in, there was already an abbot or abbess in Redwall Abbey, right?

No, he is just a normal General, not the Brigadier, and as he is almost never at Salamandasstron, and it is a position that he rarely takes advantage of. When he does use it he is given total authority over the troops he is given and only them, Matthew controls all of the hares unconditionally and can override Roth's decisions at any time.

Yes, the abbess was Germaine, formerly of Loamhedge Abbey.

I see. I've been thinking of maybe playing the abbess of Redwall, but since she is the character from the book I haven't read, it might not be the best idea. Do you think it would be possible to play Germaine - after reading her description on wiki - without making her act out of character?

I believe that it would be possible, having just read it I see that the article provides an apt description of her. The only thing I can think to add is that she strives for a peaceable solution whenever she can and is well versed in the healing arts.

Upon thinking about it, in our timeframe, she would be extremely old, she could have even passed on by now, so there could even be a new abbot/abbess by now, but then again, she could simply be retired, as she is very old and there are other leaders that retired in a couple of the other books. If you want to play the leader of Redwall it would be your call as to whether she is still around.

I think I'll keep her alive, but retired. I'll play a new leader of Redwall, who may ask Germaine for an advice from time to time. In that way, it will be easier to keep her from acting out of character.

So, I am just wondering, do we want to decide who will be whom at Redwall and elsewhere? There are characters that are set to be in the places that the story goes including Martin, Gonff and Brome and I think it would be a good idea to settle that sooner than later.

I would like to play the part of Gonff the Mousethief once we get to Redwall, if there are no objections, I could be anyone else that needs a role really. If there are any questions as to who all the main characters at the abbey and Noonvale are, just ask.

Hmm... Who is there to roleplay aside from Martin, Gonff, Brome and Germaine? Do you think some of those canon characters from Redwall Abbey should join us on this quest to the North?

I could play some of them, if necessary.

Well there would be Bella of Brockhall (badger), Lady Amber (squirrel), Skipper (otter), Foremole, Dinny (Moles), Furdy and Coggs and family (Hedgehogs) and Columbine (Gonff's wife) Gonff (Son of Gonff) at Redwall along with plenty of unnamed characters.
Pallum (Hedgehog) Grumm (Mole), Keyla (otter), and the escaped Marshank slaves are at Noonvale with the unnamed characters as well.

We clearly do not have to use all of them, but if someone wants to include one or more of them, they can use this list and search the character on the redwall wiki.

Some of them could of course go with Roth and the LP but I think Martin would stay at Redwall because he hung up his sword.

That's good, because it means more glory to our original characters. :D

As well as keeping the character count within reason, yes.

Yes. It would be very hard to give each character some time in the spotlight, if there was many of them.

By the way... What unit(s) do Cori, Louis and William belong to? I'm just curious. :)

I was thinking that Will and Louis are in the fifth, Will is an archer, and Louis is a general infantry fighter.

Male. I take it you need that information to answer Mell's question? If so, then do you need to know anything else? :)
