RW Abbey: Breezeway (#427)

Owned by AbbeyBuilder

A covered, narrow walkway connecting both the smaller building of the kitchens and the large, dwarfing building of the Great Hall. It is a walkway for the kitchen's servers for easy access to the Hall during mealtimes and Feasts. Because it is covered, it is mostly protected from the weather but outside so that more easy access to it is afforded. At almost all times, beasts can be seen scurrying across its surface -- despite their destination and the weather going on around them. Life must go on!

New growth sprouts up around the edges of the walkway but anything that managed to take root in the walkway and breezeway itself finds itself trampled -- and quite not worth the energy of rooting there. Brisk, slightly chilly spring breezes find their way into the breezeway, stirring the puddles of the many rainstorms that always manage to dump water onto the little, narrow walkway -- despite the coverings and shelter.

RW Abbey: Breezeway Benar frowns softly, "I told Rascal that here at Redwall a beast can be anything if they try. Being given a chance to try doesn't mean I've given it approval. I told him he was to work with Elmef in the gardens and fields, I never told him he could harass the dibbuns of Abbey School. I'll not have him upsetting you Oz, you tell him from me I want to see him if I don't get my paws on him first." Sighing the abbot glanceds at Bandit and smiles, "Well let's see if I can get Magramba over here, we could set something up together and offer it as a solution to Scioto." Apr 26, 2016 at 11:23 a.m.
The fox raises teh other eyebrow, "A fox...named 'Rascal'? Really? What kind of name is Rascal for a fox?" Says the fox named Bandit. "Have you lot been taking in stray foxes again? Don't tell me you have gone and replaced me!" Bandit crosses his arms and laughs. "And I'm in no hurry. I'm sure Ferrivale will be fine with out me there for a few more days." Apr 26, 2016 at 11:26 a.m.
Oz says, "Knowing Rascal he has upset Zinnia as well, but I have yet to speak to her to see what he said.."He grumbles slightly to himself and then decides to get his mind off it "Shall I have a novice find and have Magramba come here then?"" Apr 26, 2016 at 11:26 a.m.
Benar waves a paw, "No I'll catch Magramba at dinner tonight, if Bandit is ok to stay a few days then we can just catchup with Magramba natraully. I know he is re-working the guard rota and training schedule so I don't want to pull him away." he pats the stone coping next to him, "Sit down both of you, let us talk of happier things, I will deal with Rascal later." Apr 26, 2016 at 11:30 a.m.
The fox nods, tail wagging he leans back with his paws behind him. "Happier things. Heh, I'm a guard in a village full of vermin so I think someone else should go first on this one." Apr 26, 2016 at 11:33 a.m.
Oz nods as he dos sit down, he has taken part of the day off in fact, "Well there is the feast in a couple days time. I am sure it will go well as all whom was away is back now."He then chuckles"Even someone new has jioned the abbey...though seems when outside he rather be in a tree that on the ground, a badger cub...he does pay atention very well from whatI can tell. But I am unsure the other dibbuns are use to him yet, he is a bit...taller than them" Apr 26, 2016 at 11:36 a.m.
Benar asks, "Xander is climbing trees?" he frowns, "He really shouldn't be doing that whilst so young, at least not on his own. And yes we have my Spring Feast to which you are totally barred Bandit! We totlaly don't havbe enough food to feed you," he grins at the fox playfully." Apr 26, 2016 at 11:37 a.m.
The fox's tail begins to wag even harder at the mention of a fast approaching feast. He mocks a look of dispair, "But just think Benar, with out me around the abbey dwellers would have too MUCH food. They would all grow fat and soft and then where would you be. It's a right propper service I'm doing for you! For free no less." At the mention of badgers his smile fades a little, "Badgers, oi. I think I've had my fill of badgers these last few months. No offense to you Oz of course. Between Slade and Krull..." He shakes his head, "No no, we were talking about happy stories and there is nothing happy about either is seeing Slades head..." the fox remembers his company and swollows the rest of his comment, "Behind bars." Apr 26, 2016 at 11:41 a.m.
Benar says, "Well indeed I guess I wouldn't want everyone to get fat and lazy. But do let everyone know they are welcome to the feast as well as every other woodlander. If I am lucky we may even get some otters down from camp Willow which would be nice." looking out over the gardens the squirrel's ears prick up, "Also we have gotten rid of our pine marten infestation in the ruins under the south wall."" Apr 26, 2016 at 11:43 a.m.
Oz rasies an eyebrow, yes lets not questio what the fox is speaking of " Anyways....the feast should be extra speical this season and its good to have things back to normal and safe now." Apr 26, 2016 at 11:44 a.m.
"The beasts of Ferrival always know the abbey is open to those who mean it no harm. Why just the other day..." The fox pauses, rewinding the conversation in his mind, "Wait, 'pine marten infestation'?" He gives Benar a currious glance, "Do I even want to know?" Apr 26, 2016 at 11:46 a.m.
Benar says, "We had a band of pine martens move into the ruins under the south wall through the old river tunnels. We were able to send them on their way again with minimum violence."" Apr 26, 2016 at 11:49 a.m.
Oz says, "To which I am glad, I was begining to worry when the snows started melting that we might of had trouble, but luckly we did not" Apr 26, 2016 at 11:52 a.m.
Bandit only stares, "Oh." He says simply. "You know, I should find this odd but given everything that happens in Mossflower I'm just...used to it by now. I even had a crazed badger warrior challenge me to a duel last month." The fox shakes his head, rolling his eyes. Slowly he grunts with effort as he stands up. "Thank you for the chat my fellow beasts. I should however find a scribe and a messenger to ferry a scroll to Scioto, less he get's worried that I was acosted by bandits...or almost eaten by an eagle...again." Bandit's eyes get a far away look to them until he shakes his head. "Anway, take care!" Apr 26, 2016 at 11:56 a.m.
Benar says, "See you late Bandit, I will save you a seat at the feast in two days time." he raises a paw in farewell then looks at his scroll and sighs, "I should get going as well Oz, I will see you later?"" Apr 26, 2016 at 11:57 a.m.
Oz nods "Maybe we can talk over some mint tea later tonight" Apr 26, 2016 at 11:59 a.m.
Bandit goes home. Apr 26, 2016 at 12:24 p.m.
Leon moves inside into the Great Hall.. Apr 26, 2016 at 3:31 p.m.
Leon arrives from the Breezeway.. Apr 26, 2016 at 3:31 p.m.
Bandit was dead. Apr 29, 2016 at 9:51 a.m.
Or the very least it felt like he was dead. Pies of all fruits and flavors, fishy platters and shrimp stews, breads both glazed with honey and slathered with butter. The fox's stomach was less than pleased with the gluttony thrust upon it yesterday at the feast. Apr 29, 2016 at 9:51 a.m.
While otters in Camp Willow were slaughtered like sheep the denizens of Redwall feasted and ate to their hearts merry content and none feasted more than the gluttonous swift fox Bandit who was now paying sorely for his sin. Apr 29, 2016 at 9:51 a.m.
It didn't stop him from getting a light snack from the kitchen this morning however, as the crumbs of pie around his muzzle indicate as he walks slowly, contentedly, out of the kitchen and into the breeze way. Apr 29, 2016 at 9:51 a.m.
Ah is- The fox pauses to clutch tightly at his gut, leaning one paw against the wall to support himself. Life is, mostly good. Apr 29, 2016 at 9:51 a.m.
Well, what you don't know can't hurt you, and all that. The Redwallers have heard mum on the Camp Willow attack as of yet, and no news is good news. While his attendance at the feast was minimal, Magramba did manage to sample a nice variety of tasties without eating his gut into a tizzy, and the day finds him walking easily through the breezeway, off to try out a new idea at the forge. A thick apron already covers his clothes, much more sparse and casual than his regular traveling ensemble. Apr 29, 2016 at 9:55 a.m.
The fox looks up for but a moment to half wave, half salute the squirrel as he passes, "Don't mind me, just dying over here. Carry on." The fox moves himself out of Magramba's way as much as he can. A moment passes and Bandit peers more intently at the squirrel, "Say, you're the Champion, right? Maggy something, right?" Apr 29, 2016 at 9:59 a.m.
The squirrel's pace towards the other side of the breezeway slows at the question. "...Magramba," he corrects, glancing sidelong at the fox. The unfamiliar /fox/ in the Abbey. "Is there something I can help you with? If you're here to see the healers, they're upstairs." Apr 29, 2016 at 10:02 a.m.
The fox smirks, turning to face Mag with his arms behind his back. "I'm fairly certain I'm beyond any help healers can provide at this point, mentally or physically. Actually, I'm here for /you/!" The fox chuckles in a sinister way as he approaches the squirrel. Apr 29, 2016 at 10:06 a.m.
At the last moment he thrusts a paw forward to shake, "I'm Bandit. Head Guard of the village up north. Benar said I needed to speak with you." Apr 29, 2016 at 10:06 a.m.
At the last moment, Magramba's arm relaxes and the hammer he's holding in his opposite paw droops as he reaches out to accept the shake. "Nice to meet you, ...Bandit." Is that name supposed to be a joke? What kind of fool does he take Mag for? "So you're the head guard of- well, that must be Ferravale," the warrior deduces, still looking at this 'Bandit' fellow as though he might actually be a bandit. "If Benar sent you to me there's probably a good reason. Who'd you kill that's trying to get revenge?" Apr 29, 2016 at 10:10 a.m.
The fox raises an eyebrow to the question. "Oh, you're a funny one," He barks in laughter even while trying to squeeze the squirrel's paw just a little bit harder to show how 'funny' he thought his joke was before letting go. "It's heh, funny you should mention that," the fox says off handedly, thinking back to Krull the badger warrior, "But that's not why I'm here. I'm actually here on Ferrivale business. I'm here to address ways to solve our...highway bandit problems between Redwall and Ferrival. Apr 29, 2016 at 10:18 a.m.
The squeezing has little effect on the squirrel, try as Bandit might. Magramba is still caught up with the name, and the phrasing throws him off. "Is there a highway bandit problem between us? We haven't sent any bandits your way, I'm sure, but it seems Ferravale has sent one to us. A Bandit on the highway, that is." Apr 29, 2016 at 10:23 a.m.
The fox raises the other eyebrow, "Yes, yes indeed they have." Rubbing his eyes Bandit chuckles, "It's like talking to Flicktail, but in squirrely body. Anyway, terribly long story short, I'm planning on sending armed groups of vermin across the roadways to keep them safe and I need to know how close to the abbey I can send them with out causing...problems." The fox feels he doesn't need to explain said problems. Woodlanders tend to get, jumpy, when they see armed groups of vermin, guards or not... Apr 29, 2016 at 10:29 a.m.
"I thought we were trying to /prevent/ this bandit incidents, not cause more of them," Magramba replies, idly fingering the handle of his hammer. "Ideally I'd prefer if there were no armed vermin on the roads at all, but I understand you have to take certain precautions against your own kind. Keep them out of sight of the Abbey, and it shouldn't cause a fuss." The warrior scratches thoughtfully at his chin, doing his best to be accommodating and tolerant and all that nonsense. Apr 29, 2016 at 10:33 a.m.
*these bandit incidents Apr 29, 2016 at 10:33 a.m.
Leon takes this morment to walk into the breezeway, his headfur is messed up and he has mud on his surcoat, but he can wash that if needed.He also has some blood stains on his sleeves, dried now and it's not odd to find a healer with blood stains sometimes, he glaces over at Magrmba and Bandit, for now not saying anything. Apr 29, 2016 at 10:33 a.m.
The fox hardly notices the mouse, too distracted by his own growing ire. "My /kind/?" Narrowing his eyes the fox decides to let the issue slide. Being accommodating and tolerant and all that nonsense as well. "I think I can live with that." Crossing his arms across his chest the fox replies one more, "And? I need to know what Redwall can do. This little venture won't work if we don't both pull our weight on it you know..." Apr 29, 2016 at 10:37 a.m.
"This is not a military base, sir," Magramba replies tersely, starting to lose his patience with the fox especially now that the harsh tone is creeping into his voice. "We don't have a highway patrol. We barely have guards to man the walls. The Abbey is a peaceful place and those around these parts know it. We don't go looking for trouble unless we have to." The squirrel's eyes do tick over towards Leon when the mouse appears, but it really isn't that unusual to see a healer looking out of sorts and covered in blood. "If there's a problem with one of our beasts, we'll deal with it ourselves, but the treaty between us is a matter of trade, goods for healing, and I'm not about to bind our beasts to spill blood for yours." Apr 29, 2016 at 10:45 a.m.
Leon frowns, "If..this is a bad time, this can wait."He sounds tried, A novice comes up and taps his shoulder whispering something and the Master Healer frowns, " not sure where to keep the can't be in the infirm" His voice is tried and sort of stressed a little. Apr 29, 2016 at 10:48 a.m.
Bandit's paws once again slide behind his back. It's a little trick the fox learned to keep beasts from seeing him curl his paws into fists. "I'm well aware of you're abbey's tendency to be violent pacifits. I was there for the last few invasions." He pauses to quickly add, "On /this/ side of the wall. And you seem to fail to realize that if Ferrivale ups it's patrols and you don't the grounds around Redwall will be a prime target for-" Apr 29, 2016 at 10:52 a.m.
The interuption from Leon keeps things from becoming, uncivil. Turning on his heal the fox begins stalking away from the new Champion. "No trouble Leon. I was just /leaving/. I'll give Scioto your regards..." He pauses in midstep, turing to face the mouse, "Eagle?" Apr 29, 2016 at 10:52 a.m.
As the fox turns to go, Magramba shrugs his shoulders dismissively. They have other allies, ones that have agreed to fight for them and share the same ideological views. "Good luck with your crime problem," Magramba calls, wiping his free paw off on his apron. Apr 29, 2016 at 11:03 a.m.
Leon frowns at Bandit, and this is unlike him as he speaks to the fox,"Well so far you and the chieftain have done a poor job of finding that Wildcat, I got a good look at him after the eagle crashed, Oh I was ON THE BIRD..." He clears his throat"When he,caleb and Pine...and see Zurrgg. I might be dead if Zee not came but still...still" And now he frowns, slight anger over and replaced with worry and stress as he looks at Magramba "The wildcat has my son, and a dibbun...and.." Apr 29, 2016 at 11:08 a.m.
Annnnnnnd Bandit's vacation ends. Just like that. All he can do is stand there, leaning ever back away from the mouse as he unloads onto him in a jumbled mess of emotion. "Wha...?" The fox turns to Mag, "Looks like my little crime problem can wait." Then to Leon, "Slow down mate, slow down there. Start at the begining. What happened?" Apr 29, 2016 at 11:10 a.m.
Did he say they were riding an eagle? That doesn't seem safe. Or well-advised. Anyway. Magramba blinks as the story comes rushing out, just trying to process all the discombobulated pieces. "What wildcat? The beginning, yes." Apr 29, 2016 at 11:17 a.m.
Leon frowns and nods"As I said...Me and Novice Pine were getting some supplies for the infirm in Ferravale and was on the way back. Caleb was with us ....then an arrow and crossbolt hit the eagle and it crashed into the clearing. We were ok, not the eagle but I started tending to him when the wildcat came with a small group of his friends. There were words and Zee happen to be near by and manage to stop the wildcat from causeing further damage or.." He frowns and goes on"Zurrgg, the wildcat, did leave and I don't know where to but he took Caleb with him and a badger cub that was with Zee. Me and Zee got back here, the eagle is being tended to and...Novice Pine is.."Seems he rather not say , he sighs "He's in the infirm..." Apr 29, 2016 at 11:24 a.m.
The fox keeps a rather calm, even placid look as he process this information. Eagle riding Leon and Co were attacked on their way back from Ferrival to Redwall. Given a few hours of estimated travel time from the scene of the crime to here that gives Zurrgg... Apr 29, 2016 at 11:31 a.m.
(A rather big head start.) Apr 29, 2016 at 11:31 a.m.
It was times like this that Bandit finds himself lacking words of comfort or the usual silver tongue that his species is known for. These days he doesn't even try anymore. "Do all you can for them." Even the eagle, he says to himself, "Magramba," the fox says, turning to the squirrel, "I need to barrow a runner. Scioto in Ferrival must know of this. He can organize a search party, but by the time I would get there it would be too late." For obvious reasons the obese fox doesn't wish to go into, "I'm..." and he really, really does hesitate when he says this, "At your disposal here..." Apr 29, 2016 at 11:31 a.m.
"I'm not in charge of anyone during times of peace," Magramba replies, raising his paws to waist level. "You'll need to find a volunteer. I might go, but from the sound of it I need to get out in the woods and start looking. I know these lands as well as anyone, and I can think of a pawful of good spots I'd hunker down if I had to to check on first." His attention clicks back to the healer, his mind already working through the list of things that need to be done. "Leon, does your wife know? You should tell her, /now./" Dora's temper is a well-known factor, and the longer that's put off the worse it'll be for Leon, undoubtedly. Bandit's breathless offer is met with a small measure of reticence. "...are you going to slow me down?" The warrior's eyes suggest he suspects the affirmative. Apr 29, 2016 at 11:37 a.m.
Leon shakes his head "I have not told Dorarose yet, no I was tending to the eagle first and Zee had been injuried so I helped him. But I can tell her here in a little while" Apr 29, 2016 at 11:41 a.m.
Dora's wrath is well known enough that Bandit shivers a bit. In reply to the squirrel he sighs, knowing full well, that he would slow Mag down even in his prime. "You search on side of the road, I'll search the other on my way back to Ferrivale. We can take some," the fox smirks at the word despite the circomstances, "Vollenteers with each of us." Apr 29, 2016 at 11:47 a.m.
"I'm going to scout around /now,/" Magramba replies, starting to head back the way he came rather than carrying on towards the smithy. "Leon, if you can help - Bandit - find a volunteer to run ahead to Ferravale that'd be helpful," he calls over his shoulder, still hung up on that name. "I'm heading into the woods." And he's off! Apr 29, 2016 at 11:58 a.m.
Leon goes home. Apr 29, 2016 at 12:25 p.m.

Flicktail asks, "may I joinyou? I like to watch rain too" May 17, 2016 at 8:03 p.m.
Thorn frowns and shrugs as she stares at the rain quietly, "I'm...sorry" May 17, 2016 at 8:04 p.m.
Flicktail cocks his head :fer wot? May 17, 2016 at 8:06 p.m.

Aidan arrives with: Foliosa Jun 21, 2016 at 10:43 a.m.
Aidan removes Foliosa from his group. Jun 21, 2016 at 10:43 a.m.
Redwall. So peaceful, even when things are going to pot in distant villages. Aidan is lounging in the breezeway, despite the high traffic in the area, so as to enjoy the outdoors and the shade at once, without feeling like he's in or under a tree. A little bit of an odd preference for a squirrel, with the orchards so close by, but he's there all the same, a long piece of grass tucked into the corner of his mouth. Jun 21, 2016 at 10:55 a.m.
It's hot. Hot enough that the resident Redwall bat has also sought the refuge of both shade and the fresh air. But what is this? Some beast has beaten her to it. She flutters and wheels around in the air before she delicately lands herself against one of the arched pillars that supports the covered walk. "Helloooo," the little bat lass greets Aidan as her nimble little thumb claws hook into the stone. She peers around the pillar and down at him, blinking owlishly. Jun 21, 2016 at 11:03 a.m.
The almost tranquil atmosphere of the abbey feels, odd to Bandit. The sounds of nature mix well with the sounds of peacefull labor. There are no drunken bouts of partying, nor the sounds of arguments nor the usual hustil and bustle usually associated with the city. It was...peacefull. Jun 21, 2016 at 11:06 a.m.
The brown fox knew it was all a lie of course. Redwall was peacefull in the same way that the eye of a storm was calm. It was temporary, always temporary before some disaster befell them. But for today Bandit finds himself carrying a scone as he walks into the breeze way, seeing neither bat nor squirrel as he walks. Somewhere the fox has found a yellow tunic that is capable of fitting to his obese frame. Jun 21, 2016 at 11:06 a.m.
Peaceful, calm, quiet. Aidan glances up as the bat lands on the pillar, regarding her curiously. "Oh, hello there," he greets cheerfully, giving her a little wave. "Edward, pleased to meet you." The squirrel's attention is pulled to the side as Bandit comes strolling through, food unsurprisingly in tow, and he nods to the fox as well, but shows little interest otherwise, turning back to the bat. Jun 21, 2016 at 11:15 a.m.
"Edward," Foliosa repeats. "I am Foliosa, yes. We think alike, we do. I was coming over to enjoy this nice area as well." The bat's tiny, furless nose twitches at the smell of food and for a moment Bandit gets her attention as well. "Oh! But call me Foli. Every beast in Redwall does, yes yes. Are you new?" Jun 21, 2016 at 11:18 a.m.
The fox waves to Edward with his free paw, pausing in mid stride to glance at the bat. It's not the first bat he's seen, after all he has a bat on the force back in...well, had at least...still, they were currious creatures. Bandit thinks about continuing down the path but in reality he has nothing important to attend too so why not stop by and visit? "Edward! Ye bushtailed scamp, how are you doing? Did the sell go well?" He steps closer then turns and makes a half bow to the bat, "And good morning Miss, Foli was it? Pleasure to meet you as well." Jun 21, 2016 at 11:25 a.m.
"I'm a traveling merchant," 'Edward' explains to Foli as Bandit makes his way over to greet them. "I trade with various folk in order to make a profit! I'm a servant of the almighty coin." With a wide smile, he turns to the fox. "It went about as well as it could in the current climate of panic and dismay. Made a few small deals." Jun 21, 2016 at 11:35 a.m.
Foliosa opens her mouth to form a little 'o'. "I see, I see," she says with a bob of her head. Her wing arms shift and she adjusts her hold on the stone pillar. The bat looks between Aidan and the fox. "Hullo, yes. Foli. I believe I have seen you around," she says, uncertainty in her voice. "What do you sell?" Jun 21, 2016 at 11:38 a.m.
The fox seems to get a smile at the squirrels sense of loyalties. "arn't we all?" He leans to one side, arms cross and finishes his scone as the bat replies. Then the fox says, "I'm currious what you have left to sell myself." Jun 21, 2016 at 11:41 a.m.
"Right now?" Edward/Aidan hmmms to himself as he thinks the question over, pursing his lips together and leaning his head back against his paws, clasped behind his neck in the classic picture of relaxation. He doesn't look dangerous at all. "It's mostly trade goods, not anything individuals would buy for themselves. Bolts of cloth, some boxes of nails, that sort of thing." Jun 21, 2016 at 11:43 a.m.
"Ahhh," comes the friendly hiss of Foli's odd voice. "Trade goods. I have very little use for nails, I am afraid, I am." To illustrate this, the little bat lifts a wing to wiggle her thumb finger at the squirrel. "Hammers are not easily welded by my kind, you see." Foliosa heaves out a sigh and scuttles around the pillar to ease herself to the ground by Bandit. "I am sure there are beasts interested in cloth around here, though." Jun 21, 2016 at 11:48 a.m.
Smiling at Foli's explination about hammers and bats Bandit replies, "Some more than others. I practically have to buy cloth in bulk for my tailor." They say it was good to have good humor about one's flaws. Despite his jest at his own expense Bandit didn't feel very humorous about it afterward. "I don't think I've seen you here before Foli. Are you new here as well?" Things have changed so much. Old faces being replaced by new ones. Bandit has been away for a season, maybe more, and half of the beasts here now he hardly reconizes. Jun 21, 2016 at 11:53 a.m.
"Well, you know how it is," Aidan answers vaguely, deflecting the questions, explanations, and statements deftly, the long piece of grass swaying with the movement of his mouth. He waits quietly for Foli's life story, since that's what most of the beasts around here tend to spill, utterly and without provocation. Jun 21, 2016 at 12:01 p.m.
"Mm, no," Foli has to think about this as her wings fold politely in front of her. "Well, I came here at the beginning of winter and was gone a bit in the spring.... so kind of, perhaps perhaps." Her head tilts to the side and she considers the pair. No life story in sight. Because, well, it's pretty boring. "I think I am here to stay, though. It is home now, it is." Jun 21, 2016 at 12:04 p.m.
Bandit's life story would be interesting! It has pirates! Gold! Jewels! Action! Drama! Romanace! Failed Romance! And stabbing things! Lot's of stabbing things! Bandit has led an interesting life even after growing soft and fat and lazy! "I know that feeling." He says with laughter. It doesn't seem like the fox is sharing either though. "I'm not sure what the near future for me entails what with Ferrival the way it is but, if you need a paw with something..." he leaves the offer for help open to both beasts. Whether or not he will act on it if they actually asked is a completely different story. Jun 21, 2016 at 12:09 p.m.
Aden moves inside into the Great Hall.. Jun 21, 2016 at 12:12 p.m.
Aden arrives from the Breezeway.. Jun 21, 2016 at 12:12 p.m.
"Actually, I could use some help transporting some of my goods when I leave," Aidan/Edward offers generously, looking pleasantly surprised by the offer, his eyebrows raised. "I'm glad you found a home, Foli, my new friend. Everyone deserves a place where they belong." He gives her his widest smile. Jun 21, 2016 at 12:13 p.m.
Foliosa laughs in her weird, squeaking way. "I couldn't have done better," she insists with a fond look around the Abbey grounds... at least the grounds they can see from the breezeway. Her thumbs grasp together and she feels her stomach rumble. "Mm. I am afraid I am not so good for carrying things, personally. So I will leave that up to the fox, ah yes." Foli grins and flaps an arm to scoot herself towards the kitchen. "If you need me, I will be finding lunch!" Jun 21, 2016 at 12:16 p.m.
"A beast after my own heart." The gluttonous fox laughs, "I too am not good for carrying things! Of course, in my case it's more on purpose. Anyway, if you need help with that Edward let me know, I'll see what I can do." And like that Bandit follows the bat towards the kitchens. Jun 21, 2016 at 12:19 p.m.
Benar moves inside into the Great Hall.. Jul 7, 2016 at 1:34 p.m.
Benar arrives from the Breezeway.. Jul 7, 2016 at 1:34 p.m.
Cynthia comes outside from the great hall, she been inside for a short while and looks around Jul 22, 2016 at 2:07 p.m.
Caleb follows the mousemaid "Hey, wait on me Cynthia" He smiles still in a good mood Jul 22, 2016 at 2:09 p.m.
Cynthia chuckles, "Wait on you for what, your being a slow poke" She tenses him again as she twirls around a little in a sort of dance humming softly to herself. Jul 22, 2016 at 2:12 p.m.
Caleb frowns, he isn't that slow. He watches her dance a little and for now stays where he is. Jul 22, 2016 at 2:19 p.m.
Cynthia does a couple other spins and looks back at Caleb, "What I like danceing and singing and there is differnt dances just as there is different songs to sing." She walks back over to him smileing and if he allows takes his paws into hers, "I can teach you one, a simple one that steps fowards once an back twice and to side a little, and a little spin even" If he allows she will led him into the dance also as there is a fair amont of room out here. Jul 22, 2016 at 2:24 p.m.
Caleb shrugs "I don't really....."He does allow her to led and does fairly well, he about trips once and mutters a sorry but does pay atention and follows the steps, catching on after a short while and smiles at her. Jul 22, 2016 at 2:26 p.m.
Cynthia grins and nods "I think your good at learning things fairy quick." Jul 22, 2016 at 2:27 p.m.
Caleb smiles "Welll I have a good teacher, I have you...the best teacher in all of Mossflower and the most....ummmm kind" Jul 22, 2016 at 2:29 p.m.
Cynthia blushes as she dances with Caleb, '" Thanks your very sweet Caleb" Jul 22, 2016 at 2:32 p.m.
Caleb smiles as he still dances "Your welcome, your also..pretty, no more than pretty" Jul 22, 2016 at 2:38 p.m.
Cynthia smiles more, the dance staying at the same pace and she lays her head on his shoulder as she knows he can dance well now, this dance anyways. Jul 22, 2016 at 2:41 p.m.
Caleb allows her and is careful as he dances with her, "This is nice, maybe should dance more often" Jul 22, 2016 at 2:43 p.m.
Cynthia nods a little and sighs happy,'Yeah we should, it would be fun" Jul 22, 2016 at 2:48 p.m.
Cynthia moves inside into the Great Hall.. Jul 23, 2016 at 9:12 a.m.
Cynthia arrives from the Breezeway.. Jul 23, 2016 at 9:12 a.m.
The breezeway seemed the best place to be, just have others stay clear of it unless it was important, Oz sits in a chair making sure the shew stays in the chair and yes he could hear if he left as his hearing is very good Aug 13, 2016 at noon
Sorex has finally stoped cussing, maybe cause his throat hurt or he knew it worthless to even keep it up Aug 13, 2016 at 12:10 p.m.
Oz has mainy been quiet but now he speaks "Care to expalin your actions before what I think should happen...happens?" His voice, its calm for now anyways. Aug 13, 2016 at 12:26 p.m.
Sorex has been stareing at the badger, "Whats it to you and I dont have to explain my actions to a blind beast, and yes I know your blind so maybe you didnt know a fox...a fox was saved from your pond" Aug 13, 2016 at 12:27 p.m.
Oz takes a deep breath and speaks again "I know she is a fox, a dibbun in fact and her mother is very word, as am I, she is a dibbun that lives here. A dibbun that woud mean no one any harm" Aug 13, 2016 at 12:29 p.m.
Sorex chuckls "Give it time, then see how harmless it will be then. I saw the look the adult one game me...dangerous to have in your abbey" Aug 13, 2016 at 12:32 p.m.
Oz says, "She is a member of this abbey and I did not see how she looked, then again I only say...what do you expect when it was her child you tried to drown.Be lucky this was not outside the abbey or you most likely wouldnt be talking right now"" Aug 13, 2016 at 12:34 p.m.
Oz shakes his head,"So...a fox is a vermin, you have a rat here also" Aug 13, 2016 at 12:40 p.m.
Oz says, "But it doesnt mean they are evill...not all are evil" Aug 13, 2016 at 12:41 p.m.
Sorex says, "All vermin are evil" Aug 13, 2016 at 12:42 p.m.
Oz says, "Rayen and Juliana are not evil, nor is Thorn" Aug 13, 2016 at 12:45 p.m.
Sorex snorts "They have names, then guess vermin do need names....and come to think of it the ssame mouse stoped me twice, both times from helping top purge your place of vermin, vermin most likely waiting to strike" Aug 13, 2016 at 12:48 p.m.
Oz is starting to get a little peeved, "Then maybe its a good idea to leave...and harming a dibbun is wrong" Aug 13, 2016 at 1:01 p.m.
Sorex smirks"Not a vermin dibbun, so much easier to take care of.....they dont fight back you see" Aug 13, 2016 at 1:03 p.m.
Oz can't see the smirk but he dislkes the tone of voice, and manaages to stay calm" Prehaps I will not wait on the abbot, prehaps I will toss you out myself, that dibbun is one of the dibbuns undfer my care" Aug 13, 2016 at 1:05 p.m.
Sorex shakes his head"You watching a vermin child? What is wrong with this place, with you stripedog...vermin are be gotten rid of" Aug 13, 2016 at 1:09 p.m.
Oz has had about enough, he decides he is not going to argie with the shrew and just ignores him. Aug 13, 2016 at 4:35 p.m.
Sorex narrows his eyes "Your ignoreing me, I dislike that, I asked a simple question and should get an answer, or is this place just not in control of things? Or they are easyly tricked prehaps?" Aug 13, 2016 at 4:38 p.m.
Oz folds his arms over his chest, he has some choice words but keeps them to himself for now,"Shut up" Simple words, maybe a warning even. Aug 13, 2016 at 4:40 p.m.
Sorex snorts"I will not shut up...stripedog. I want to know why you and the mouse eaier seem to want to defend...vermins, any vermin should die be them old or young...." Aug 13, 2016 at 4:42 p.m.
Oz says, "And you...sir need to be quiet I have heard and had about enough of you, the pond was proof enough and one doesnt need to see to know it was wrong what happen and I have a right to toss you out as well, dont need the go ahead and do it" Aug 13, 2016 at 4:45 p.m.
Sorex smirks as he speaks again,"Oh, ya ya. Well you most likely have a hard time being blind and all, clearly thats the only reason you seemed unfazed by the brat at the pond, I am unsure of the mouse maybe he is just ill in the head or something, want to know my feelings about the brat?" Aug 13, 2016 at 4:49 p.m.
Oz says, "It be wise to be quiet" Aug 13, 2016 at 4:51 p.m.
Sorex says, "Oh..why be quiet?" Aug 13, 2016 at 4:55 p.m.
Oz says, "Because I said so" Aug 13, 2016 at 4:57 p.m.
Sorex is quiet, for a short while but he seems to like to get in the last word" is the fox kit?" He smirks and his thoughts in the sound of his voice "Dead I hope..." Aug 13, 2016 at 5:01 p.m.
And he has succeeded in ticking the badger off, as Oz rises from his chair and goes to grab the shrew, he doesn't really care where right now as those words just were the last straw. Aug 13, 2016 at 5:02 p.m.
Sorex chuckles and then that chuckle is silenced as he is grabbed at the throat, ok he was not expecting that or maybe he was as he goes to kick at him. Aug 13, 2016 at 5:07 p.m.
Leon enters about this time, trying to get fresh air and blinks as he turns to see...great,not that he woudnt mind seeing the shrew choaked"Wait Oz!" He quickly goes over to the two beasts, but carefully. Aug 13, 2016 at 5:09 p.m.
Oz does release the shrew and snarls, he walks away "He needs escorded out, the sooner the better, I am going to get some tea" Yeah he doesn't want to hear the shrew right now or be near him."If I throw him out myself it wil be painfuly" Aug 13, 2016 at 5:11 p.m.
Sorex is still a little..tied to a chair and coughs, "Your stripedog needs controled" He states, but hey it could of been worse as he glares at the leaving badger, then at the healer. Aug 13, 2016 at 5:13 p.m.
Oz moves inside into the Great Hall.. Aug 13, 2016 at 5:13 p.m.

Leon shakes his head and walks over looking down at the shrew"I am guessing this has to do with Juliana, I wont ask what was said as I can ask later but yes the abbot will be having you escorded out of the abbey, you harmed a dibbun,just about killed the abbot daughter, injuried my son and threaten another abbey beast." Aug 13, 2016 at 5:16 p.m.
Sorex asks, "Why dos the abbot have a vermin for a daughter for, is he insane?" Aug 13, 2016 at 5:17 p.m.
Leon shakes his head, he calls over a couple otters to take the shrew somewhere, oh and guard him better so he dosnt get out of a room again. Aug 13, 2016 at 5:19 p.m.
Leon moves inside into the Great Hall.. Aug 13, 2016 at 5:21 p.m.

Zolomon walked through the breezeway after returning a bowl he borrowed to the kitchens, not a busy time of day at least so not as much risk of a lot of beatss around. Nov 28, 2016 at 5:56 p.m.
Leon notices the hare and goes to walk arouund him, "Excuse me" He decided to help wash dishes today and has just finished, Nov 28, 2016 at 5:57 p.m.
Zolomon grins "Brother L....hallo to you. I was just returning a bowl from where had some soup..a lot of soup that was jolly good, sort of need a bit of something sweet, do excusss me chap be right back" He slips into the kitchens and returns with a apple pie and smiles" A wee snack" Nov 28, 2016 at 5:59 p.m.
Leon asks, "Thats a snack? I do not think Friar Lacota would like to find a pie missing, nor a hare helping themselves to food and its Brother Leon, not what you said" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:02 p.m.
Zolomon grins "Well see de pie won't be found that easyly Brother L, no cause I plan to hide it in a safe place" He proceeds to eat the pie "My...stomach.....won;t bally well find it there" He talks between mouthfuls of pie, he has a talent and its make food disapear in a short amont of time.He pours some October Ale into a mug, yeah he had some ale also from a empty cleaned out flask"Good stuff" He then finishes the pie, "See..what pie?" He grins. Nov 28, 2016 at 6:06 p.m.
Leon sighs and shakes his head" Its still wrong and he will still know its gone" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:08 p.m.
Zolomon chuckles "Maybe but not by whom." He takes another sip of the October ale." I may slip another pie, there was one other...." He slips in and out with a 2nd pie, an apple again and starts to eat it as well, a sip of ale and a bite of pie"Food is good here I must say" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:12 p.m.
Leon frowns and speaks up " If I were you I would stop, how do hares even eat so much?" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:13 p.m.
Zolomon grins, "I will just tell him how great a cook he is, a master of his trade in fact and maybe help him make another pie." He smirks " So I can eat it, these are great!" He finishes the 2nd pie and his last few sips of ale and puts the tim down on top of the other tin." Well I am good to go now, soon as Gramps is done chatting" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:15 p.m.
Leon frowns, "Gramps? Is there another hare with you?" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:17 p.m.
Zolomon shakes his head no "Nope, just this like really really old badger, lives in Ferravale. Not a bad place Ferravale, intresting beasts there, might decide to live there my self, think thats good idea Brother L?" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:20 p.m.
Leon frowns, he gives up as seems no use to tell the hare not to call him Brother L, "I don't know, thats up to you...ummm who are you?" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:21 p.m.
Zolomon answers with a bow "Zolomon Arturo Garrick Anderson IV" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:23 p.m.
Leon nods "Nice to meet you, I think I remember you from few days ago. You were the one who shot an arrow at Jedrick, the wildcat at the gates about a week ago" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:28 p.m.
Rayen uses the breezeway to get out of some light drizzle that has started and nods a hello to the two beasts here. Nov 28, 2016 at 6:31 p.m.
Zolomon nods "Yeah the chap is dead now, very dead in fact so no more threat..." He nods a hello to the fox "Hallo miss" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:32 p.m.
Leon asks, "Hello Rayen how are you doing?" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:32 p.m.
Rayen says, "Hi, I am doing well. Looks like we have a new guest at the abbey" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:33 p.m.
Zolomon says, " "Zolomon Arturo Garrick Anderson IV" He smiles"Rayen huh....hmm" Well he can think of a short nickname later." Nov 28, 2016 at 6:35 p.m.
Leon nods "Yeah, think he is just passing through though" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:37 p.m.
Rayen nods "Always nice to see new guests" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:45 p.m.
Leon nods "Yes new guests are always welcome" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:52 p.m.
Zolomon grins "I like this place and even though missed the last feast I have no plans to miss the winter feast when ever it is" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:54 p.m.
Rayen chuckles, "It will be a couple months till the winter feast, and we have a feast each season, to welcome the new season and name the season" Nov 28, 2016 at 6:55 p.m.
Leon says, "Yes should be intresting, then feasts are always nice" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:02 p.m.
Zolomon is curious "Intresting how Brother L?" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:03 p.m.
Rayen blinks at the name, and waits on a reply. Nov 28, 2016 at 7:04 p.m.
Leon answers "Well a stoat named Marek was recently forgiven and invited to the winter feast, he has anney hosipity back and can enter the abbey....least think so, or if he is ever hurt could be trested in the abbey infirm now as before he couldnt be" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:06 p.m.
Zolomon says, "I know him, Mr. M at de tavern in Ferravale. I think he is a good guy...I trust the chap, and he is tavern owner in Ferravale and good ale there too"" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:08 p.m.
Rayen says, "I heard about that" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:08 p.m.
Leon says, "Anyway I should get back to the infirm, in case I am needed" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:18 p.m.
Zolomon nods "Course Brother L." He then thinks "Your a healer right?" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:20 p.m.
Rayen smiles "Brother Leon is the Master Healer of the abbey, I am a healer who helps him when needed, why do you ask?" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:21 p.m.
Leon starts to head off and then waits to listen to the hare. Nov 28, 2016 at 7:21 p.m.
Zolomon frowns "Gramps mentioned...that he was dying and..well he is really really old but, I don't know...maybe there is some way to stop it?" He then shakes his head "Never mind dumb question as course there isnt.......I should go find Gramps he promised xandy he be back by tonight and xandy is at the hut in later" He then walks off. Nov 28, 2016 at 7:25 p.m.
Rayen frowns "His grandpa?" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:25 p.m.
Leon blinks and frowns "No...he means Zee. Zee did mention it to me week or so ago, we talked about a couple other things.That was one of them.....not really anything I can do, I mean zee is...well pretty old, think older than Lorimis was even." Nov 28, 2016 at 7:29 p.m.
Rayen nods " Maybe talk to him, dont know....need any help in the infirm?" Nov 28, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.
Leon shakes his head "No....not right now, I best check on a beast in the infirm though. A novice was helping in the cellar and droped a heavy box on thier footpaw, think its just sprang but they wanted me to check it again in case its broke so see you later" He then heads off. Nov 28, 2016 at 7:32 p.m.
Leon goes home. Nov 28, 2016 at 7:35 p.m.
Rayen goes home. Nov 28, 2016 at 7:57 p.m.

Zolomon arrives from the Breezeway.. Feb 27, 2017 at 7:23 p.m.
Benar is standing in the Breezeway reading from a small book as he shelters under its overhang. The weather outside is grey and overcast and somewhat looking like it is going to threaten to rain as he waits patiently for someone. He nods to Flicktail as he walks onto the breezeway but otherwise continues to read his book. Feb 27, 2017 at 7:27 p.m.
Flicktail puts down a number of wooden planks, and a rabbit plain...mopping his brow he pauses to get a drink from a ceramic flask, possibly created by their own abbot "Good afternoon abbot....good to see you, It looks like we will make it thru another winter...." The woden planks make a soft tghud as flictail piks one up and eyes across it's surface to check it's not warped Feb 27, 2017 at 7:29 p.m.
Benar says, "We always make it thorugh the winter as long as we all work together Flicktail. But I will be glad to see Spring and get some warmer weather in."" Feb 27, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
Flicktail asks, "Aye Rather, how are yer joints doin? I know some o the older beasts...cold weather gives them some aches an pains" he rubs a shoulder his tail dancing behind him "I think iam starting to get some o that meself" Feb 27, 2017 at 7:34 p.m.
Benar stares at Flicktail, "I am younger then you, by about ten seasons... I was a child when you were running around doing... verminous things. So my joints are just fine Flicktail and will be for seasons upon seasons to come." Feb 27, 2017 at 7:35 p.m.
Flicktail chuckles "aye Father, I did not mean to imply you was fact I am feelin me age. he smiles and runs a paw across what looks to be a maple shelf too feel it's smoothness "Any projects in your kiln these days? or just whatever artstic muse strikes ye? Feb 27, 2017 at 7:37 p.m.
Benar says, "Whatever I fancy or is required for the smooth operation of the Abbey is mostly what I am interested in these days."" Feb 27, 2017 at 7:41 p.m.
Flicktail says, "Please remind the beasts as we get near spring that if there are any downed trees...I woudl like to look at them to see if I can use the wood rather then firewood?" Feb 27, 2017 at 7:46 p.m.
Benar says, "Ah... Elmef has already cleared all the tree debris in the orchard. There were no downed trees just some broken branches. he cleared them all away a few weeks back."" Feb 27, 2017 at 7:47 p.m.
Flicktail nods "aye even so there are likely some on Mossflower, maybe ask the sparra's tpo keep an eye, I would never cut down a live tree if I ad a choice...or unless it woud elp thehealth o the forrest...i were reading the other day if trees are too close they can stunt each other and it causes diseases Feb 27, 2017 at 7:49 p.m.
Benar says, "I wouldn't know much about growing trees I am afraid Flicktail just climbing them." he shakes his head and smiles softly, "But I will ask beasts to let us know if they see any."" Feb 27, 2017 at 7:50 p.m.
Flicktail says, "I really like workin with me paws...and I have been getting tools made better at the forges... Wish I had an apprentic though...took me alongtime to learn this...would be nice to pass it on" Feb 27, 2017 at 7:52 p.m.
Benar says, "Well I have more students in the kiln then I know what to do with but I am afraid you can't have any of them," he laughs softly, "But if you want an apprentice ask people."" Feb 27, 2017 at 7:54 p.m.
Flicktail nods "well thats why I am workin on this project Father, he nods to the board "show off me work some while helpin th abbey Feb 27, 2017 at 7:55 p.m.
Benar says, "Well that is very good Flicktail it is always good to help the abbey in anyway you can"" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:01 p.m.
Flicktail asks, "perhaps you could give me an opinion of my work?" he asks hopfully "I am trying this thing called wood carving as a way to cut designs into wood. I figure we can lable our bookshelving for cataloging and I can put some nuce decorations...Like an Acorn on the top sill" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:02 p.m.
Benar lifts his paws, "I know nothing about Woodwork Flicktail, and it really isn't my place to judge things or mark them. It is your work, if you are happy with it then you shoul dbe proud of it" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:05 p.m.
Xander walks along the walkway, paws in his pockets and muttering to himself as if having a bad day. Feb 27, 2017 at 8:07 p.m.
Flicktail dusts off the board "Thats an interesting view Father" showing off a nicely carved acorn in the wood in bas relief he hearsthe muttering "Good day Xander...pleased to see you Feb 27, 2017 at 8:08 p.m.
Benar shakes his head and looks at the board, "it is nice, though Acorns ah... the stalk at the top it is ab it long," he looks over, "Xander whatever is th ematter?" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:09 p.m.
Flicktail considers the stem on the Acorn and nods "thats agood eye..but then I expect squirrels to know acorns" he smiles "I have some bees wax to rub the wood and put a finish on will hep preserve teh wood too Feb 27, 2017 at 8:16 p.m.
Xander stops and looks over at Benar and frowns, he walks over "I thought someone told you by now..." Yes lets fire that guard or messenger or who ever, "When they were having a class in the clearing to have a lessen on like trees and plants in the woods a small group of vermin showed up and some dibbuns got captured and are missing, Rayen and Quade were there but only manage to find some of the dibbuns and some others are still missing and the bad guys had kncoked out Ucle Oz and he was in the infirm in Ferravale but Marek helped him back here ealier today and I am worried they have my sister Tanya, the beaver dibbun mom adopted" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:16 p.m.
Benar frowns, "What was Oz doing taking Dibbuns out of the abbey in the first place! We have trees inside the walls," he starts toward the door, "Flicktail sorry but this is somewhat going to derail our discussion," he tugs on Xander's arm, "Inside, why does no one ever tell me these things. Have anyone told Magramba?" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:19 p.m.
Flicktail listens, a pang of regret and guilt in his heart as he is no longer the one to solve these probems..though he still hopes to help "it is ok Father Abbot...just remember you ave a vermious fox beastthat canbe a spy in their camp if it is needed...I am not THAT old yet Feb 27, 2017 at 8:22 p.m.
Xander frowns backing off "A bird was supposed to give him a message too. Maybe he is out looking and I am not sure, I know the clearing is not to far away and he was with Rayen and Quade,,,,maybe ask them" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:23 p.m.
Benar turns his head to look at Flicktail, "Flicky, my dear chap, you have bright white fur and are the most famous fox in Mossflower woods. I am afraid the chances or you sneaking un-recognized into a vermin camp is somewhat unlikely. I thank you for the thought though," he turns back to Xander and taps a foot, "Well I know Magramba is out, maybe he is hunting, but this ddoes not bode well! I mean really... Dibbuns kidnapped! What was Oz thinking taking them out of the abbey, in winter!" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:25 p.m.
Xander frowns "I dont know, it wasnt totally his idea and I am sure he is upset too." Feb 27, 2017 at 8:27 p.m.
Benar sighs and nods his head, "Of course, it doens't do to get upset... it was still a damn stupid thing to do. We have an entire orchard full of trees after all... but the thing to focus on now is finding those dibbuns. If Magramba is aware and out huntingf for them then that is a start." Feb 27, 2017 at 8:28 p.m.
Rayen walks into the breezeway smoothing out her fur some, its clear she has been outside, she slows when she hears the others and stays off to the side. Feb 27, 2017 at 8:29 p.m.
Flicktail Is taken aback by Father Abbots description of him especially as famous "well..there are disguises" he says, but very softly more as if convincing himself He see's Rayen and moves tpo his mate "Good day Luv' he says watingthe comfort of her arms as his heart worries Feb 27, 2017 at 8:30 p.m.
Xander nods, he notices Rayen and points her out "She was there when it happen" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:30 p.m.
Benar looks around, "Rayen, any news? What happened? It sounds like you have been thorugh a terrible ordeal," he then looks back at Flicktail, "No sneaking off to infiltrate vermin camps! Or I'll have Rayen here lock you in your cottage." Feb 27, 2017 at 8:31 p.m.
Rayen moves away from Flicktail and looks at Benar "I..I am fine" She sounds a little nervous" And news...oh umm none, sorry. And it was a lesson on some oak and maple trees a little ways int othe know get out a little. I am sure they will be found soon" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:32 p.m.
Takeo has been walking around trying to find beasts, seeing the group he walks over. Feb 27, 2017 at 8:34 p.m.
Xander frowns at Rayen "Didnt you look for anything, clues or something?" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:34 p.m.
Benar reaches out a hand and squeezes her arm, "it is ok Rayen, these things happen we will find them and get everyone back safe and sound soon. It's just been so quiet lately I never thought this would happen. Feb 27, 2017 at 8:35 p.m.
Rayen nods "Well....guess we misjudged the woods being ok even that close tothe abbey." She frowns and does add"I would suggest no birds...bad idea" She leaves it at that putting her paws bhind her back" Sorry I was there and...things happen" Her ears flatten some. Feb 27, 2017 at 8:37 p.m.
Flicktail gently keeps Rayen in his embrace "it isok Luv..there were nothing wrong in wot any beast did...the woods are for all and it would be wrong to seal ourselves away..and think we are protecting everyone...our very oath states abbey beasts go out and aid others Feb 27, 2017 at 8:39 p.m.
Takeo steps forward" I agree my friend Aira may of found where the wee ones are....but saddly who ever is involved injuired her" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:39 p.m.
Xander says, "I am helping to find them, and so is Zolomon and the other defenders." Feb 27, 2017 at 8:41 p.m.
Takeo seems to tense up "No...your not I don't care" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:41 p.m.
Flicktail looks at Takeo "ave we met sir? Feb 27, 2017 at 8:42 p.m.
Rayen just seems to listen, she frowns when the sea gull is mentioned but is quiet for the most part. Feb 27, 2017 at 8:43 p.m.
Xander looks at Takeo and folds his arms over his chest" not a child...I can go, its not like I am the only one going. Zolomon is and Marek has teh defenders and I AM part of that..and..."Ok it comes out before he can stop it "Your not my dad so you can't tell me what I can and cant do only Uncle Oz or mom can!" He then cups a paw over his mouth. Feb 27, 2017 at 8:47 p.m.
Benar says, "Well then we must all do our best to help find them," he frowns, "OI am sorry for your friend being harmed Takeo.... and this is all most unsettling... i do hope we can find them quickly"" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:47 p.m.
Takeo stares at Xander and takes a deep breath and snorts, he looks at Flicktail "I am Zinnia's mate....and"He looks at Xander"Well someone is above Oz and Zinnia in that...son...abbot tell him to stay"" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:49 p.m.
Flicktail says, "If I may, Um Mr Takeo...I ave found in me own youth...that it is better the lad along then to have im act rashly..I think it be a good idea that young Xander gpo...but not alone go with agroup" Feb 27, 2017 at 8:50 p.m.
Rayen blinks at the outbrust and looks at the beasts around, "I...think I will go...try and find out somethings...later "And she leaves before anyone has a chance to follow her to where ever she is going Feb 27, 2017 at 8:50 p.m.
Xander jaw drops, Takeo didnt just...he looks over at Benar for a reaction. Feb 27, 2017 at 8:51 p.m.
Takeo glares at the fox and looks to Benar for an answer. Feb 27, 2017 at 8:52 p.m.
Benar blinks at all the sudden outburts and shouting and Rayen hurrying away, "Xander is more then old enough to go if he should and the Champion, DoraRose and the others who lead my guards will take him along with them." he shakes his head, "And Secondly he is also not mine to command, I advise caution and sensibility, such as helping the search in the company of other more experienced beasts" he frowns at the larger badger, "But this is Redwall Abbey, not a military camp or some verminous horde where I can bark orders and have people obey them because they must." Feb 27, 2017 at 8:55 p.m.
Xander nods "I am resposible and know to avoid trouble. I am a lot more grown up than I should be probally and I know how to use a sword, can't say my first teacher was the best teacher or some of the things I learned were good things." Feb 27, 2017 at 8:58 p.m.
Takeo takes a deep breath and exhales slowly, he looks to Xander "I know...a wildcat named Jedrick had you as a slave...and you got away from them, and that your still learning to be a thing to know is dont let temper get in the way or....a need to get revenge as it ends badly for most" He sighs "You can go but your listen to the more seasonsed warriors as I am not going to bring bad news to your mother if your killed...some other beast can" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:01 p.m.
Flicktail smiles and gives a wink to Takeo Feb 27, 2017 at 9:04 p.m.
Xander looks down "Sorry for the yelling...and I know, I know be careful, alert and all that and even thats its ok to run from a fight. I learned a little stuff from Uncle Zee and...well maybe some think my current teacher is a bad idea but he is a good mentor and teacher and thats Marek...he been helping me train" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:04 p.m.
Takeo says, "Leader of the defenders...othyer than that I dont know much about him...excpet he is a stoat...then again there is a fox in your abbey tha tseems trustworthy"" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:06 p.m.
Flicktail says, "aye I can tell you that there is no fox more trustworth them me mate Rayen" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:07 p.m.
Benar says, "Marek... I would rather you take lessons from Magramba, Marek... is not the sort of stoat who I would like to see train anyone... but forget that for now."" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:07 p.m.
Flicktail says, "you know I used to be a fair paw wi a blade meself...I can elp beasts train and would do me good to keep me from lookin like me friend...Bandit" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:08 p.m.
Xander says, "Marek is good, he is not evil...well anymore I know he was once" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:09 p.m.
Takeo nods "And Rayen the vixwn that was here.....I am unsure she seemed to be nervous ealier and if she was with the dibbuns and them why didnt she manage to help better or find clues or news?" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:10 p.m.
Takeo says, "And as I told a hare ealier I am helping in this serch as well and I trust beast once they proove to me they are trustworthy" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:12 p.m.
Flicktail says, "that be Unfair Takeo..every beasts makes mistakes...I just heard you apologize to this fine Badger Lord...for yelling...would it be fare to ask why you did not show more restraint? Rayen feels bad because she did not want any beast harmed..especially dibbuns" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:13 p.m.
Xander says, "I am not a badger Lord Flicktail...there is only one of them Lord Ciocan and he is like...super super tall and would flatten bad beast with his war hammer whicjh is like...well big" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:15 p.m.
Benar shakes his head, "Rayen and Flicktail have my full trust Takeo, I have known flicktail here since I was a child. He was our champion until last year when he retired and Magramba took up the sword at Martin's request." Feb 27, 2017 at 9:16 p.m.
Flicktail nods to Xander, his eyes geting wide with a look of awe at the description of the Lord "um..If I ever meet him..I hope yer around" he says quietly..."Father Abbot can tell you, I have been rather...frightened of Badgers...but I won't turn tail to no beast Feb 27, 2017 at 9:17 p.m.
Takeo chuckles at Xander and maneges a smile, he looks to the fox and back to Benar " I will...have to see, had a bad experence with a fox before so.....hard to forget" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:17 p.m.
Xander nods "Well he doesnt like vermin from what I know...but he would most likely not come this far unless something major happen and he be easy to see and avoid"Ok may this is over saying it as the badger is over 6 foot tall not ... Feb 27, 2017 at 9:19 p.m.
Xander says, "He is 10 foot tall or more" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:19 p.m.
Benar says, "Yes it took me seasons to get over that too. Try being sold to the monitor lizards of Sampetra by a fox and see how that sours your opinion of them"" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:20 p.m.
Takeo arches an eyebrow "Then how do you get along with the dibbun caretaker or Xander.....avoid them? And I will not harm anybeast unless they give me reason to" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:21 p.m.
Xander says, "Uncle Oz would also not hurt anyone....but he does have a staff and he is like awsome with it...he could kick vermins butts probally....umm if he wanted to."" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:23 p.m.
Flicktail NODS TO tAKEO "i GET ALONG WITH THEM BECAUSE, LIKE YOU, THEY SHOWED ME THEIR FRIENDSHIP AND i LEARED i COUDL TRUST THEM.... (OOC I hate caps lock) Xander ehere is in th abbey...if e be here then e has Father Abbots trust to do no harm..... Feb 27, 2017 at 9:23 p.m.
Takeo nods "Well if they feel you are a friend then......" He puts out a paw "I am your friend as well sir Flicktail" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:24 p.m.
Flicktail offers Takeo a warm 2 pawed shake "I am honored ave friends such as you Feb 27, 2017 at 9:25 p.m.
Flicktail says, "and if you ever want some trainin...I weiled a sword fer many seasons" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:25 p.m.
Benar says, "Well I must get back inside and talk to the elders, But please do all continue to chat, if you will all excuse me." he bobs his head and sets off." Feb 27, 2017 at 9:25 p.m.
Xander waves to Benar. he seems to remember something but decides it can wait for now Feb 27, 2017 at 9:27 p.m.
Flicktail looks up atthe 2 large Badgers "oh my there was a time I would ave beenterrified o ye Feb 27, 2017 at 9:27 p.m.
Takeo says, "I am fine with training, I may not be perfect with a blade but I am strong and quick....importnat when you are in charge of an small island...whuch I will need to get back to once its spring"" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:28 p.m.
Xander isnt to tall...yet, but is Flicktails height and will grow taller, he frowns at Takeo "You and mom are leaving in the spring?" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:29 p.m.
Flicktail says, "aye well do not rile out yer claws and fangs...Remember Badger Mum Constance took out many a vermin that way" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:30 p.m.
Takeo nods "Yes us and the twins....but we can stay in contact i am sure" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:30 p.m.
Xander says, "Uncle Oz is very protective of the dibbuns...he may be blind but it doesnt mean he wont fight off vermin who try and harm the dibbuns or even try and harm a friend" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:31 p.m.
Takeo says, "I am sure he is very protective of them, its not wise to get near a badger if you mean an innocent in their care harm" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:31 p.m.
Flicktail looks overto Tajei "it would be my most cherished desire to one day be able to meet your Lord Ciocan, and maybe visit some time" The fox pauses to puff his chest with pride "So far as far as I know I am the only fox to ever see the inside of Salamandastron and live to tell of it...I was a Guest there Feb 27, 2017 at 9:31 p.m.
Takeo says, "Well I never meet him myself ...Xander meet him and so has Zinnia" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:33 p.m.
Xander says, "No vermin beasts are allowed in the mountain at all" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:33 p.m.
Takeo says, "and he is ruler of this...Salamandstron, not my home lands thats far across the western sea" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:34 p.m.
Flicktail says, "well this was long ago... and I was the guest of Th Badger Lord Bioshun Axe paw and is daughter..and a Colonel Zoey Lang o the Long Patorl hares...we played similies" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:38 p.m.
Flicktail says, "of course I was also the Abbey Champion and had been named Commander of the Arny o Mossflower against your current mentor Takeo...they very stoat..lead a war against me..." he looks down "I am sorry to say my blade took his paw" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:39 p.m.
Takeo says, "intresting" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:39 p.m.
Xander asks, "What are you talking abou? " Feb 27, 2017 at 9:40 p.m.
Takeo says, "Yes I never had a stoat mentor....that would be Xander" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:41 p.m.
Xander says, "And Marek never lost a paw maybe your confusing him with someone else" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:41 p.m.
Flicktail says, "sorry I meant Xander" he blushes I would not mention it to im...he is...very sad over wot he did....Marek was on the force who attacked teh abbey...but perhaps yer right, I am a silly fox I may be thinking o a different beast" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:42 p.m.
Xander says, "Well there has been different beasts that have attacked teh abbey, could be easy to get mixed up" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:43 p.m.
Xander says, "It would be in the records mom wrote" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:43 p.m.
Takeo says, "Ahhh yes Zinnia was recorder here at one time that is correct" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:43 p.m.
Flicktail nods "But yes I was in the Fire Mountian..I'd like to earn that trust again some day...before I go to th Dark were a jolly company them hares Feb 27, 2017 at 9:44 p.m.
Flicktail says, "I miss Zoey" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:44 p.m.
Xander says, "Hare would probally kill you now...well most Zolomon wouldnt dont think, he would just eat alll your food" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:44 p.m.
Flicktail chuckles "well thats why I have Badger friends...firends can really elp ypu a fact that is another tail..I lost a dear friend..a Stoat who were a spice salesman...a very bitter woodlander...laughed while he sayed the lads child and wife" he says sadly "mt friend could not live after that Feb 27, 2017 at 9:46 p.m.
Takeo says, "Yes hares seem to have bottomless stomachs it seems somehow" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:46 p.m.
Xander says, "SOME...but very few vermin cretures are good or trustworthy" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:47 p.m.
Flicktail nods "it is not yer fur that make you woodlander or Vermin...but yer earts..." he says solumly Feb 27, 2017 at 9:47 p.m.
Takeo says, "Well trust is earned and and hard to earn, but also easy to lose at tyhe same time" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:47 p.m.
Flicktail says, "aye but a beast cannot be slain on sight...they must be GIVE thattime to earn that trust..." Feb 27, 2017 at 9:48 p.m.
Xander says, "Like with Marek, some dont trust him still but I do he is my friend" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:48 p.m.
Takeo says, "well depends...I may not slay a beast on site but it doesnt mean I try and befriedn them either" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:49 p.m.
Flicktail gathers up his maple wood boards and moved toward his workshop "well I must get back to me trade...Young Xander...remember if you want to train to see me..and be careful on your honor as always Suh Feb 27, 2017 at 9:49 p.m.
Xander says, "I will think on it" Feb 27, 2017 at 9:52 p.m.

Benar is sitting in a comfortable chair piled high with cushions in the shade of the breezeway where he can watch the comings and goings of the various beasts who are hard at work in the orchard or fields or around the pond. The abbot has a scroll in his lap and is occasionally making marks on it as he works on updating this inventory or that. Jul 9, 2019 at 6:16 p.m.
Keldorn has been away a little while but has now returned slowly walking into the area the abbot is in, he doesnt say anything as he doesn't wish to distrube the abbot if he is doing something important. Jul 9, 2019 at 6:19 p.m.
Benar glances up from his work and smiles over his glasses at Keldorn, "Ah Keldorn, welcome home, I will be right with you," he finishes making his adjustments to the scroll then hands it to a waiting novice, "Please deliver this to Lacota directly," the novice bows and hurries off and the abbot turns to smile at the shrew, "How was the Western Shore?" Jul 9, 2019 at 6:21 p.m.
Keldorn manages a smile "It was...intresting"He will leave it at that "But all is well there"Which is true, a small chuckle at one memory though."They seem to have thier own version of the DAB though" Jul 9, 2019 at 6:24 p.m.
Benar snorts and shakes his head in amusement, "I think most places have a version of the dab, dibbuns seem to congregrate no matter what you do and they have a penchant for mischief." Jul 9, 2019 at 6:28 p.m.
Keldorn nods " is good to be back though Benar, it was something I needed to do before becoming a novice" Jul 9, 2019 at 6:34 p.m.
Benar says, "So you are back that is good," he leans back in his chair and smiles, "If you have finished with your journeying and are ready to try and stay put I would accept your oath now Keldorn."" Jul 9, 2019 at 6:37 p.m.
Keldorn nods "I am ready to stay at teh abbey yes sir. and have studied the charter and learned it by heart." He smiles "To be Brothers and Sisters of peace and goodwill, living together in harmony under the protection of Redwall Abbey, forsaking all unnecessary forms of violence, not only to Mossflower, its trees, grasses, flowers, and insects, but to all living creatures. To help and comfort the dispossessed, harbor orphans and waifs, offer shelter to all creatures alike, give clothing, warmth and food to any beast or creature that is deemed in need of such. To educate and learn, particularly in the healing arts, comfort the sick, nurse the injured and help the wounded. To take our food from the earth and replenish the land by caring for it, husbanding crops and living in harmony with the seasons always. To honor and protect our friends and brethren, only raising paw to do battle when our life at Redwall is threatened by treachery and the shadow of war at these times every Redwall creature should show courage Jul 9, 2019 at 6:40 p.m.
, fortitude and obedience to the Father Abbot. Albeit the taking of another life must always be justified and never carried out in a wanton manner." He finishes "I have also had my sword melted down, a request made to have it be something of vaule and not of fear and destruction as a weapon is." Jul 9, 2019 at 6:43 p.m.
Benar smiles softly and stands up and places a hand on Keldorn's shoulder and smiles, "Thank you my son, I abbot Benar do stand witness this day to your knowledge of the charter and welcome you my child as Novice to our ranks." Jul 9, 2019 at 6:45 p.m.
Keldorn smiles, "Thank you Benar and I will honor the charter, and learn what ever there is to learn as a novice."He then seems to remember "I did bring back something,though I do not know what it is." Jul 9, 2019 at 6:51 p.m.
Benar smiles, "It's father Abbot now," he winks and then laughs, "nah I am joking Benar is fine," he settles back down in his chair, "So what ave you brought back with you? Let's see it." Jul 9, 2019 at 6:53 p.m.
Keldorn smiles and goes to get the wraped package and then carefully hands it to Benar as he steps back, "It is nice to have a place to truely call home, its..been a while since I have called any place home" Jul 9, 2019 at 6:56 p.m.
Benar takes the package and starts to unpick the string with his claws, "Wel lI am glad you feel safe and that you can call the abbey your home, now let's see what this is." Jul 9, 2019 at 6:58 p.m.
Keldorn nods , he seems to have something else on his mind but for now is curious of the package"I feel welcome here and I do not wish to touch a weapon again in my life, the warrior past is put to rest, my wandering..put to rest" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:03 p.m.
Benar smiles, "I remember those days, when I first set aside being a soldier and joined the order, it takes sometime to adjust so do not rush into making too many decisions about life," he opens the package and lifts out the item inside. Jul 9, 2019 at 7:04 p.m.
Keldorn nods "I have learned that, one must think on decisions, and know what promises one can make and not make. I have made..mistakes in my life and hope to make no more mistakes in life." Jul 9, 2019 at 7:07 p.m.
Benar says, "It can take some time to get a handle on life like that, but I am sure you will rise to the challenge keldorn," he holds up the three items in the package, one a long wooden pole with a hook on it, the other a gardening trowel and the third what look like a pair of hedge trimmers, "Ok... some gardening implements and what I think is a window pole."" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:08 p.m.
Keldorn nods, "I know life is...diffcult at times."He goes quiet and then clears his throat "I did want to make one last trip, which I did..there is one thing I never spoke of to any beasts I have meet, till just the past couple weeks" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:11 p.m.
Benar says, "Well I would say you made a glorious trip, all the way to the western shore and the Mountain of the badgers... congratulations and welcome home my son."" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:13 p.m.
Keldorn nods "It is a good trip, mainly by boat and help from a friend, Silverwing..."He then looks for a place to sit, well he can stand"I also went to see if my family was still there, and they were.It was a short visit and I had hoped my daughter would of..come with me, she..did not, prehaps it is best I know not" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:18 p.m.
Benar points toward one of the other chairs nearby, "Sit sit," he smiles, "I want to hear all about your trip and your journey and a family you say? Well I am sure your daughter will drop by one day, my children are always swinging in then vanishing on adventures or heading home." Jul 9, 2019 at 7:20 p.m.
Keldorn nods as he sits and blinks "You have..children? Or do you mean..adopted?" He then speaks "I...I use to live in Halyard and got married, had a daughter.."He frowns "The last time I had seen them was when Seria was barely walking..I saddly put warrior and knight duties, I had made promises to my knightly duties and they took me away and I never did go back to them...till this trip." Jul 9, 2019 at 7:23 p.m.
Benar leans back in his chair, "I have several adopted children and three actual children, they all live in Southsward however," he then focusses on the shrew, "As for that... sometimes I have noticed the path of the warrior leads to isolation from those whom are loved." Jul 9, 2019 at 7:26 p.m.
Keldorn nods "I have..learned though. Maybe family life it was, not ment for me.I do hope to do well with being a novice and one day a brother in the order of Redwall, as for any new skill I am unsure yet, healing maybe." Jul 9, 2019 at 7:36 p.m.
Benar says, "We all interact with our families in our own ways Keldorn, and I am sure in no time at all you will be a brother."" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:37 p.m.
Keldorn smiles "I do hope so, I do still have my dagger but not for use as a weapon, more for maybe peeling an apple or maybe woodworking, hmms that may be a good skill as well" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:39 p.m.
Benar says, "Well as a Novice you'll get the chance to try all the various skills and tasks the abbey needs doing to work"" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:40 p.m.
Keldorn says, "I will have to get the robes I need as well" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:44 p.m.
Benar says, "Robes and a room in the dorms and all of that are ready and waiting for your Keldorn, I took the liberty of getting things ready whilst you where away"" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:46 p.m.
Keldorn smiles again "Thank you Abbot Benar, I do hope I am able to honor the role of novice and one day Brother. My life has had and downs, but then who has not had ups and downs I suppose."He smiles"My trip was good still, a couple problems but most was good" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:48 p.m.
Benar says, "Well I am glad it was good," Keldorn and the Abbot are sitting in chairs lining the breezeway, just enjoying the breeze off the pond and the warm weather, "There is a rota for novice duties in cavern hole you can check, I will have your name added"" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:50 p.m.
Xander has been keeping himself busy the past day or two, he walks towards where the two beasts are and smiles as he sees Keldorn"Keldron...your back, welcome back"He nods to Benar"Benar I got you some clay at the river, a couple beasts mentioned the clay was..low so I got some, I did use some though but only a little to make some plates I needed at the tavern" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:52 p.m.
Keldorn nods, he waves to Xander "Sir Xander, yes i have made it back safely just a little while ago in fact" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:53 p.m.
Benar says, "Hello Xander and that was most kind of you, I have not had much time for pottery lately as the stocks were so low, I will be able to make time now"" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:54 p.m.
Xander nods "Pottery is relaxing and gets one's mind off...things going on." Jul 9, 2019 at 7:56 p.m.
Keldorn says, "I should find something relaxing to do maybe, well after chores that is."" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:57 p.m.
Benar says, "It is nice yes, nice to create something and knitting is good as well, it is nice to do."" Jul 9, 2019 at 7:57 p.m.
Xander says, "Never tried...knitting.."He shrugs.."But there is a lot of clay now yeah and its a good day so far."" Jul 9, 2019 at 8 p.m.
Keldorn says, "I am thinking on learning some healing or woodworking, I know some healing but not a lot"" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:01 p.m.
Benar says, "Knitting has taken me seasons to learn.. but it is worth it, I can do it inside during the winter and woodworking and healing are both good skills Keldorn, but take your time, try out different things and find out what suits you"" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:02 p.m.
Xander says, "I am glad you got back safe Keldorn, I was a little worried. I am also glad you became a novice" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:04 p.m.
Keldorn nods "Prehaps one day you can jion the ranks Sir Xander, but of course it would be up to you.I am also going to be caling Redwall my home now" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:05 p.m.
Benar says, "Xander would be welcome" he looks up at the badger, "But I think he is not yet ready to give up being a warrior or a defender."" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:06 p.m.
Xander chuckles "I...don't think I would ever be a novice...sorry. I am a warrior and need to protect beasts and I am leader of the Mossflower Defenders." Jul 9, 2019 at 8:09 p.m.
Keldorn nods "One day maybe....just always keep family close and...not.."He frowns "Abandoned basically like I did" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:10 p.m.
Benar shakes his head, "No Xander, there is no need to be a warrior, if more beasts would accept this and accept peace we could all live without violence." Jul 9, 2019 at 8:13 p.m.
Xander tilts his head curious, he never knew the shrew had family. "Family is important to me, don't worry..I even closed my tavern for a few days to be with family."Its open again now. "Patch helps out in the tavern.." He looks at Benar and sighs "Saddly evil is around and needs ..taken care of sometimes, peace everywherewould be most welcome though" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:14 p.m.
Benar smiles at Xander, "I know, but if you gave up being a warrior today someone else would step up to fight it, there is never any need for any one beast to be a warrior." Jul 9, 2019 at 8:17 p.m.
Keldorn nods "I am glad family is important to you sir Xander, that is good"He sighs "And yes I ...had family in Halyard...I have a daughter whom I suppose is staying in Halyard i do not, I only know a hare or maybe their Lord made sure she got back to Halyard, so she is safe" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:19 p.m.
Xander nods"Its good she is safe, maybe she will visit, does she know your here or did you tell her?" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:19 p.m.
Benar says, "Well I am sure your daughter will be most welcome here at Redwall should she drop by"" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:21 p.m.
Keldorn frowns " mostly seem to hate me, I do not blame them really as a chat did not go well...though my daughter did chat with me more than her mother did at the time" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:22 p.m.
Xander listens and frowns a little, "Well ifthere is a chance she does come, I hope she travels with someone at least, some paths here are not that safe" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:23 p.m.
Benar says, "She will always be welcome here and allowed to stay as long as she should wish if she arrives."" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:24 p.m.
Keldorn smiles "I..can only hope she does, we shall see as I left it up to her what she wished to do and then I made my way back here, I did wait but she did not join me at teh time " Jul 9, 2019 at 8:26 p.m.
Xander says, "travel should be, fairly ok as long as its before winter, winter is not the best time to travel though some beasts can.I mean my Uncles lived in the snowy north at one time and seemed to care less about snow and ice and cold."" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:28 p.m.
Keldorn nods as he stands "Well I am gonna see where some help is needed in the abbey, maybe I can help wash some dishes."He bows and heads off. Jul 9, 2019 at 8:29 p.m.
Benar waves as Keldorn leaves then turns to look at Xander, "Sit with me Xander, tell me how you are feeling?" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:30 p.m.
Xander watches Keldorn head off and looks to Benar"Feeling on wot?" He asks quietly, "I'm doing ok..guess I tend to worry on friends..maybe too much at times, I am glad Keldorn got back safe, I am." Jul 9, 2019 at 8:32 p.m.
Benar says, "You worry about a lot of people," he points to a chair, "But you never sit and just... relax and take care of yourself, the loss of Oz has been a huge shock to us all."" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:33 p.m.
Xander frowns at the mention of Oz and keeps standing but he does finally sit down in a chair slowly and sighs, he likely should relax some but he hasn't lately."I...sort of relaxed ealier, a little anyways" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:35 p.m.
Benar pats Oz's arm and smiles, "I am glad you relaxed earlier Oz my dear, but this isn't enough, you must also grieve, we have lost him... and that is hard on all of us." Jul 9, 2019 at 8:36 p.m.
Xander....not Oz :P Jul 9, 2019 at 8:38 p.m.
Xander shrugs, he is quiet "Working good , its relaxing. Getting one's mind off thinsg Jul 9, 2019 at 8:39 p.m.
Benar says, "I am glad you have been working Oz but you must not stop thinking about him, you must allow yourself to grieve naturally"" Jul 9, 2019 at 8:40 p.m.
Xander snorts a little "Your clearly thinking about him...look I.." The badger sighs and just gives up, "Sorry...just..not the best mood sometimes, maybe now...." Jul 9, 2019 at 8:43 p.m.
Benar withdraws his hand and nods, "Whenever you want to talk I am here Xander, know that please." Jul 9, 2019 at 8:46 p.m.
Xander has had a bad couple days, a bad couple weeks in fact as he folds his arms over his chest ", talk will make things so much..better.And beasts say oh don't..WORRY...or ya get lied to cause OH ..I am fine...dont worry I will still be here not like going anywhere...not like...HE LIED AND HE..HE..AND HE CLEARLY WASNT FINE" He has mad a fist and ended up slaming it into the chair which broke off the arm of the chaor and he gasps, he then quickly mutters a sorry and gonna go he goes to stand and look away as he feels tears threaten, of all the beasts to lose a temper in front of, his mission now is to now walk away quickly as he can. Jul 9, 2019 at 8:55 p.m.
Benar watches Xander walk away and sighs, a long slow sigh and slumps back in his chair. The abbot stairs out over the grounds of the abbey, "At least... he's stopped bottling it up inside," he murmurs to himself before he closes his eyes. Jul 9, 2019 at 8:56 p.m.
