Ever find yourself wondering what life would be like as one of the vermin characters of the Redwall books? Instead of a world with mostly woodlanders and a few vermin, what would one look like with a vermin society where woodlanders were absent? Even more, what would a vermin society be like with a full governmental system complete with Ministries and their respective Factions, including a powerful Navy of swashbuckling sailors?

Wonder no more! A place such as this exists! The Vulpine Imperium (aka the VI) is an Empire far from Mossflower and is unknown to the gentle beasts of Redwall Abbey. Its capitol is Amarone where His Grace the Emperor dwells. Not far from Amarone is Bouillabaisse Harbor, known colloquially as Bully Harbor. Bully Harbor is the center of life and civilization in the Vulpine Imperium. Though not the capital of Vulpinsula (the main island of the Imperium), it hosts all the Ministry's main buildings, as well as the Navy's docks and warehouses. There  is very little reason to visit the rest of the island, apart from needing to get away from  the hustle and bustle of the town.

You can inhabit this wonderful place as a denizen of the Imperium, particularly as a member of its Navy if you so wish. Though being a landlubber is safer, the adventures had at sea by the beasts of the Imperial Navy are things of legend!

The Vulpine Imperium can be found at http://rovl.org/vi
Once you create your vermin character, you can begin your adventures by writing in the forum of your ship, called the Ship's Mess, or you can visit the Bilge in the Bucket forum for on land adventures. The website is mostly text-based and we welcome writers of all levels to join and pitch in their character to the on-going, communal stories we create through interactive role-playing.

If you're interested in more information about the world of the Vulpine Imperium, you can visit the VI wiki at http://rovl.org/vi_wiki/index.php.

To join the VI, just go to http://rovl.org/vi and click on the link to sign up. We'd love to see you there, and may the blessings of His Grace the Emperor tumble down upon you like a golden fog.

Once you join, post in this thread and let me know who your character is. That way I can send you a message on the site to get you started writing!

I've heard of the VI but I'd thought it died a long time ago. :o I'll have to check it out properly...

Nah it didn't die. Although, it isn't nearly as active as it once was. I mean the place literally used to be booming with activity. It was one of the original sites I was on, that and The Horde. I'm still on there now as Kaden Winder(Aka Afraid to Get Wet). Place is still fun

I definitely recommend this site to anyone who thirsts for an enriching, role-playing experience. :) I was a member of VI when it was started, and I watched it grow into a thriving Redwall community that was probably one of the most unique experiences on the ROC. Sadly, maintenance on the activities part of the site has slowed a bit, but the members stay loyal and have all become close friends, and they are always excited to see new people join in to keep the legends going.

Who was your character? And yeah, the activities are sort of buggy, but I find that most people come to the site to just write anyways. For very few are the activities the attraction to the place. The writing experience, on the other hand, is fantastic. Some very talented writers there. I started there back in early high school not long after the site was created and the VI improved my writing abilities one hundred-fold. Pretty awesome.

I was Shael Varonne, but my character has been long-dead. I created another account recently, Shael X. Varonne, just to stay in touch with the VI community. VI and RWL are sister sites, after all. :)

Wow, you were there before I was! Very cool. Yeah, I've always wondered about the other sites on rovl.org, but never got much into the game side of things. Would rather just write.  :D

Activity at the VI is going strong! Now is better than ever to join and jump in on the fun and awesome writing going on at the site.

A few of the current happenings:

- A new Faction of detectives was created to help the police force in solving crimes and mysteries throughout the Imperium!

- The Indigo Platycodon, Bully Harbor's own dark vigilante, is on the loose again, but the Fogeys (police force) are hot on his tail in a rooftop chase!

- The Golden Hide, the fastest ship in the Navy, is in the throes of a wild storm. Will she survive the wind and waves to sail another day?
 
- What's this, another fight in the Bilge in the Bucket, the most popular tavern in Bully Harbor? Of course it is! Any night is good for a rollicking bar fight, and tonight beasts are swinging from the chandeliers and fists are flying!
