Redwall Legends

How many Redwall legends do you think are "true"?
Also how many accounts by the "Teller of Tales"(Some of the later books) are true?

I don't understand the question.  In the Redwall universe, why would they not be true?

Since the later books are "written" by the Teller of Tales, maybe the Telller of Tales made the stories.

In Doomwyte it revealed that Umfry was the Teller of Tales and the Weaver of Dreams, so that covers for all excepted the Sable Queen and the Rouge Crew. Maybe when he died he passed the title onto somebeast else, and they, and their successor wrote down the tales of the Rouge Crew and the Sable Queen.

I suspect they're real...I don't think its in Abbeybeasts' nature to spin false stories. ;)

That's probally right. (Though they might be a teeny bit off with details.)

I'm guessing they're true. And welcome to the forums, though it is late ^^

I don't think that Redwallers would tell a lie... except tales told to Dibbuns or the 'come inside or the big bad monster is gonna get you!' kind of things ;D

Most Redwall Legends are true. It's just those ones that the elders or badgermum say," Watch how many strawberries you eat, or you might explode like Henry Kowlaski." Stuff like that.

I always thought of Brian Jacques himself as the teller of tales and weaver of dreams. I think it adds some magic to things! Brian, telling us a story.

Which Umfry?? I'm sure he was the hedgehog in The Rogue Crew...

Well, that's what I'm unsure about. Bragoon and Sarobando's death, though arguably canon, wasn't observed by anyone from the Abbey, since they held the line while Horty, Fenna, and Springald escaped. After that, there's very little reason for anybeast to have returned, so how could anyone have known their last moments?

First of all, welcome to the forums! You may want to post in the Introduction topic to be greeted by our friendly community!

My idea is that a passing bird saw the battle, travelled to Redwall, and said it to the Recorder.
