Interesting...
Do you remember what the bucks' names were? Longtooth's father and your grandfather? How about your mother?

While we wait for Chestnut's answer, why dont you, Cotton, and you Raspbery tell me one landmark each that marks the warren's territory? For example there is a pond that is filled by a spring from the North, surrounded by myrtle trees. Is there a special place ypu are aware of, perhaps?

My character move is Storyteller.  I'm not very strong, I'm better when it comes to talking, and I've been gathering stories I've heard other rabbits tell for a while.

Perhaps the most famous story in the warren is that of the Moon Rabbit.  It has become somewhat of a tradition to tell it every time the moon is round.  I tell it pretty well myself, but there's someone else who does it even better than me: Rosemary.  Still, I hope to become as good as she is, in the future.

(I hope I did all this correctly...)

Sedge. My mother's name is Sedge. As for my grandfather... the warren rabbits tend to avoid mentioning him by name. Even my mother. Out of fear of reminding them who she is, I think. Not that Wintergreen or Longtooth had ever forgotten...
But I digress. His name was Bramble. As for Longtooth's father... how about you ask the storytellers Rosemary or Chestnut that? Every rabbit knows his name yet I prefer not to utter it out loud.

(Trying this way of answering. Also, is it okay to pass things on like this?)

(I wanna be included y'all still need that landmark answer? I hope this is decent enough???)

Well, there's an odd placement of cracked rocks near the warren. There's usually small flowers poking up from inside the cracks in the rock. I think it's a really pretty landscape - it has this weird peaceful feel to it.

(forgot the landmark question it seems)

The most distinctive part of our territory is definitely the meadow itself and it happens to be my favourite. Nothing makes me feel more alive than running across the meadow with the smell of wildflowers writhing around me, sticking to my pelt.

I am so sorry for vanishing! We were having connection issues for some time, and I forgot my login on top of that. :( I was waiting for an email to change my password, but I never received it. Thankfully though I was able to recover it through my phone!!

If none of you are no longer interested in doing this, I understand! If you are, I will happily continue with the information you have provided thus far!

----
I'll make a note to add in Sedge and the other mentioned characters and landmarks!

I'm still interested in this :)

You are at least the third member who should have received an email but didn't.  This might be a server issue; I'll investigate.
