THE RESULTS ARE IN!
« on: October 08, 2017, 04:21:47 PM »

Suddenly, a group of creatures emerge from the judging tent. They all shake paws, then a single, masked creature gets on stage to announce the results...

"Before I pull this cord that will unveil the final score board, I would first like to thank all of the participants for making this a wonderful competition and a great success! The spirit of amicable competition and comradeship is abundant here at Redwall. Thank you all for being here.

"A quick amendment to the rules by one of the judges: those who participated in at least 5 events, OR received more than 15 points in the competition, will receive a participation medal! If you've won a prize, you can expect the judging committee to deliver a congratulatory message, and the prizes, presently.

"Now! Enough blabbering already, let's look at the final results! Congratulations to all, and thank you for taking part in the Redwall Abbey Fall Extravaganza!"

With a tug from the paw, the speaker unveils the scoreboard. Music plays and the final scores are revealed...


FINAL RESULTS!
THANKS FOR PLAYING, EVERYONE! WE HOPE YOU HAD FUN!

Hopping right into the masquerade and opening ceremonies...


At first it was peculiar to see what looked like a rather small Slagar the Cruel (way too small to be a real fox) waltzing around the dinner tables and making polite conversation with guests like he was, well, a cheery abbeydweller. Though upon closer inspection, it was found to be a costume, though carefully made: a fake snout and neatly woven mask, along with a set of faux fox-ears, all made the head of 'Slagar' come off as very believable. A cloak of suns and moons swept behind the creature as they moved on to a new table, still laughing from their last conversation. Stopping and taking an empty seat from someone who had gotten up to take a stroll, 'Slagar' interjected into an existing conversation, "How are we all tonight? It's me, lads (and lasses)!" Pulling up the mask, Captain Tammo gave a wink from underneath. "What do you think of my costume? You seem to have some pretty great ones yourselves!"

From the shadows of the apple trees emerged......a badger?!

a badger had been walking through quiet and dry places before arriving amid the gathered Abbeydwellers. The creature seemed to be intent on finding someone, or something. An immense bundle of wires seemed to follow the badger around. The sheer degree of falsity that would noticed upon closer examination would certainly take a while to outline. Eventually, this specimen of the largest of all Abbeybeasts circled around to a smaller Slagar the Cruel, who had just lowered his mask. "Very nice, T...errr...lumaris stellarmis, stellaris luminaris. Or however it goes. I came as a badger. Alternatively, you could say I came as a walking embodiment of the concept of irony."

'Slagar' clapped his paws together and jumped up from the table, "Bea-u-tiful costume, er, stranger! It must've taken ages to make. Do tell, who are you under that mask, friend?"

A mouse-like creature, clad in a green habit and carelessly swinging a knotted rope, leaned back in her chair and grinned at "Slagar" and the badger.  "I really love your costumes!"  She dug her spoon into a berry pudding and stuffed her mouth.  "An' thish food!  Delishioush!"

"Thanks, Jukka, er-I mean- FOOL! When you speak to me, you speak to me as Stella Lunaris and... oh, nevermind. Thanks, Jukka." Just then, the squirrel reached 'Slagar'. The rat mask they were wearing, while not quite scary, was charming to say the least.

'Slagar' high-fived them and replied, back in character again, "Ah, a bargain you say? Do I get to keep the flagon, too? It would sell for a good price; it looks to be of silver!" Not actually caring about driving a hard bargain, 'Slagar' took out a small bag from under his cloak. He emptied a few of the contents to show that it was candied chestnuts inside, then tossed the full bag over to Nadaz. "A deal!"

"Mariel" couldn't help laughing as "Slagar" attempted to imitate his namesake's style of speech.  She put her rope in her lap and quickly polished off the rest of the food on her plate, looking remarkably undignified as she did so.  Then she looked around.  Some Abbeydwellers were dancing, some were eating, some were playing games.  All of them looked to be having a great time.

A mouse stumbles in, wearing an poorly-tailored habit. He pauses, adjusts his hare-themed mask, habit cord, and tail before joining the festivities. Stopping first at the buffet table, he grabs an assortment of candied nuts, cheeses, bread, and fruit, before wandering to the first beast he saw. "I say, Mariel, do you fancy the scoff here, wot wot?"

A short, portly creature with a mouse mask, a set of clumsily crafted wooden armor, and a wooden sword dished herself a heaping bowl of Deeper Than Ever Turnip ‘n’ Tater ‘n’ Beetroot and a large tankard of October Ale. Pushing her mask back, the mole sunk her snout into the ale, nearly inhaling it. “Bo urr, this’m be moighty good, Oi tell ye. Moighty good. ‘Tis a feast fit fer Marthen the Worrier ‘imself, this’m is. If’n Oi do say so moiself!”

"Aye, it's delicious!" Mariel said to the "hare", wiping a sticky paw on a napkin.  She reached for a bowl of blackberry crumble.  "Have you tried this? It's amazing."  She served herself a second large helping and pushed the bowl towards Matthias.

Nearby, a mole wearing armor and a mouse mask was enjoying a large tankard of ale.  Seeing this, sudden inspiration seized Mariel.  Grabbing a nearby tankard of October Ale, she drizzled a bit of it over her crumble.  Both of them were good by themselves, so why not together?  She dug in.

"I," said the 'badger' to 'Slagar', "am Lord Brocktree. This costume is also probably too big for me."
At that remark, the 'badger' noticed the wonderful array of food that her friends were engaged with. Eyeing the blackberry crumble, and all other crumbles, the towering costume-clad figure opted for a tankard of October Ale, and a few pieces of candied fruit.

A squirrel sauntered up to the tables. Or at least, that was what she was under her costume. The mask and outfit she wore made it clear that she was a wildcat, Tsarmina to be exact. She grinned at the sight of all the food and quickly sat down on a bench. "Tsarmina" grabbed a plate and started piling food on it, from pasties to blackberry crumble. She poured herself some strawberry fizz, took a sip and dug into her food, relishing every bite.

Having just finished her blackberry crumble, "Mariel" looked up from her plate and saw that a new creature was sitting near her, dressed as the famed Tsarmina.  "Nice costume!" she called.

A hedgehog dashed up to one of the tables panting and frantically re-positioning her fox mask which had slid down her snout while she was running. "Sorry I was so late, I had no idea what to wear and I completely forgot that the festival was today" she blurted as she continued to try to fix the rest of her poorly made costume "Did I miss too much?"
