Islands in Redwall
« on: January 16, 2017, 09:07:08 PM »

There are many islands mentioned throughout the books. Which is your favorite/most intriguing to you, and could any of them have been the same island at different points in history?

List of known islands:

Terramort
Sampetra
Green Isle
Ruddaring
Peace Island
Riftguard
Twin Islands
That one island with wooden ships that wrecked there
That one island where they found Beau
That one volcanic island with the fruit

Those are all I can remember by name right now :P. Feel free to mention the other islands and I'll add them to the list.

Ruddaring
Peace Island
Riftguard (I don't remember if that was the name of the entire island?)
Twin Islands
That one island with wooden ships that wrecked there
That one island where they found Beau
That one volcanic island with the fruit

Um.... there are more, I'll try to remember. :P

Wasn't peace island what they renamed Riftguard once they took it over?

No, I'm pretty sure it was the rock with the hedgehogs that Triss and her friends found.

It's actually spelled Sampetra. We've talked about their locations in the past, though, and I think there's too many problems with the idea to make it workable. Sampetra is a tropical island; Terramort is never given that label.

Peace Island has nothing to do with Riftgard other than the fact that they're in the same book. They escape *to* Peace Island after leaving Riftgard.

Riftguard is not an island at all- it is built on a fjord on the mainland.

I cannot find a redwall map that even shows where Riftgard is, fan made or otherwise.

Hang on, really? I'm sure it was an island separate from Redwall and Salamandastron and all that.

It's been ages since I read Triss. Without copying from the wiki, can anyone describe peace island??

Well... aside from "peaceful"
