    lol jk it's Salamandastron not the Abbey tearing itself apart.

    Discussion thread for upcoming Redwall RP, all are welcome! And yeah, don't worry, I'm not going to make the same mistake twice and stall the RP because I made my character too important to the narrative XD

    EULALIA! FOR VENGANCE! FOR SANITY!

    I'm thinking Southstar is a sea otter, bajillions of miles away from home because captured by searats or something, ex-galley slave, yadda yadda. Had a really nice boat once. Wants a new boat to go home in. Is willing to punch a crazy badger to get a boat because it's not like she has anything to lose at this point.

    Well, I have Seth as mentioned, and Raksha is a mercenary and means it - she's got a kid somewhere safe and the little brat needs something to grow up on that ain't steel and samovars. I think she's actually a weasel, too - meaning that she's not much taller than the average mouse or rat. Her babydaddy is out there somewhere, she wouldn't mind feeding him his own miserable guts for splitting her ear and head and filling her fool head with notions of romance then running scared the moment she was too preggers to run after :/

    If someone's got money, she'll do the thing. Gut a couple of hares for enough gold to set her and her cub up until he's grown.

    So. Plot.
    Seth's tribe is wiped out by Badger stuck in Bloodwrath. He's gonna punch the badger. We need to find a way for him to punch the badger without getting thrown off the side of Salamandastron.
    • We need a new badger
    • Presumably, there's some hares that are like "Bugger all this for a lark, eh wot?" and others that are like "Stiff upper lip, ol' chaps."
    • Lots of conflict with, yannow, "badgers are the good and noble Lords". And we've got at least one stoat and one cat in the party. How the crap are we the good guys. Are we the good guys?
    • We need an army
    Honestly I am all for making Southstar something of a corsair. Not a slaver, or explicitly bad, but a bit too much of a bloodthirsty rogue to make the other otters comfortable. Raksha's a mercenary, so that fits right in. Wandering band of mercenaries hired by Seth/Hares to reclaim Salamandastron in the name of a sane badger?

    -nodnod- Yup, just about. Hmm, Seth has money - the Badger wasn't interested in looting his tribe, after all - but he has a bad habit of being all 'This Is Something I must Do Alone'. Seth plz you have more brains in your brush. I think he might hire mercenaries, but he wouldn't be interested in making friends with them - it's just hare fodder so he can get to the big guy in the chaos.

    Maybe Southstar can start making friends with him? Also he wouldn't intially be interested in hiring an army. He just needs a distraction.

    Southstar could easily be his voice of reason. Sees him gearing up to attack the mountain, or in the aftermath of an attempt (patches him up?) and is like "Look mate, you need an army. Let's get you an army first, okay? Siddown, shaddap and eat your soup, dammit."

    Pffthaha, I like that idea. We could easily start with just that, and expand our cast if/when we get more people in. I could write a decent starter in the morning, if you're down for that? (Also what should we call this? Salamandastron: Civil War doesn't quite roll off the tongue...)

    EDIT: Wait, it'll either be tomorrow morning or afternoon, depending if I get time before work. I work on thursday mornings ^^;;;

    My ladies Arry and Kally are a doctor and a fighter, respectively (Kally has decent prosthetics for the time and Arry wheels her around in a little cart). I'm sure there's room for them. I do co-writing stories way better than precisely RPing, I must say; discussing stuff as we go rather than throwing it in works better for me. Is that okay?

    I tend to do the co-writing thing too, so that sounds fine to me.

    THREAD HAS BEEN STARTED (finally, sorry about the delay)

    A list of Seth's injuries - cracked ribs, dislocated shoulder, mild head wound with possible concussion, as well as plenty of bruises and lacerations from the fight and the ensuring impact. Lucky for him, old Lord Madeyes (I know Ublaz has that name, we need to think of a better one) threw him out fair enough that he didn't hit any part of the mountain on the way down. He's down for the count, but he'll recover in time.

    @ChelG - so how do you want to incorperate your guys, then?

    A REPLY HAS BEEN MADE!
    If you wanna have Seth come to, he'll be fairly well cleaned and patched up in a teeny cave and Star will have a pot of oyster stew on the hob in a big clamshell. His arm will be in a sling made out of an incredibly gaudy blue paisley corsair's sash. Star's first-aid kit is decent but not incredible, there's bandages and a couple makeshift poultices (that probably smell weird and foreign) but nothing miraculous. The soup smells awesome.

    Main things that separates her from river otters are a) huge b) cream-colored mask that covers her whole face instead of just the muzzle, and c) MAX FLOOF

    It's an open beach. If nothing else y'all can be drawn in by the campfire. Although, Star's gotten past the inevitable Long Patrol by travelling mostly by sea, dunno how you would.

    The first of what will probably be a very long string of well-intentioned but very bad ideas.

    Post with angry emo squirrel who has no sense to stay abed with his injuries XD

    OH oh also how about Lord Dewani/Dewane? It's a bit exotic for a badger, I guess, but dewanee is what the folk in the Jungle Book call rabies. ( [when]"Tabaqui goes mad, for madness is the most disgraceful thing that can overtake a wild creature. We call it hydrophobia, but they call it dewanee — the madness — and run.")

    Star doesn't have the nicest bedside manner, but it's effective.

    She'd be entirely on board with revenge arcs, since, yannow, searats. I'm thinking she got out via mass slave revolt, but the ship was wrecked in the process so she's landbound.

    Feel free to have Seth think/continue to think "pirate". She's not in her full getup but she's got silver-and-abalone earrings/tailring and her vest and sash are silk.

    At some point I'd love to have them need to have her in her full rig-out for a corsair-style intimidation session ala Romsca. "I am the fanciest motherfucker on this boat and I will wreck you". Could be a good way to get some enemies-to-allies hares.

    I doubt she has everything she had back in the day, but she can probably have traded for a lot of jewelry/etc over time. She's been wandering for several seasons. She will get her custom silver fang-caps back, dammit.

    Edit: No, I love fang caps too much, she recovered those from the shipwreck treasure stash because haha her fangs are bigger than any vermin's and no one could wear them. So, yeah. Top and bottom canines are silver. It's decorative and terrifying!

    EditEdit: BadgerLord Whitemaw? Because foamy?
