Gridell suplied the first idea " ring the bell to get all the woodlanders inside the abbey and see if any know how to fight Sophia an me can help train them that dont " " I hope that we have some time to train them before the horde arrives"
Gridell left and soon the bell was ringing telling all creatures of the aproaching danger. Gridell gathered a troupe of redwallers to help gather the woodlanders. Meanwhile the few creatures inside the abbey who knew how to fight were training the others with Sophias help. She taught how to fight with slings, knives and paws while a local mouse taught the quarterstaff and a hedgehog taught the others of his kind how to "spoik" their opponents.
The hare Gridell had mentioned arrived just in time for dinner in classic hare fashion carrying many sacks of weaponry which were much appreciated by Sophia and the others who were training the residents of the abbey, It was difficult to teach daggers and swords using only sticks.

Stripetail picked a sword out of the bags and swung it, it cut through the air cleanly and swiftly. "This is a very good blade' He said to himself."I'm keeping this." The blade he had choosen had a rose pommel stone in the hilt, and the hilt fit his paw perfectly. He found the sword's sheath and tied it to his side. He swung the blade a few more times and sheathed the sword. His robes hid the fact that he was wearing the sword, and no one noticed it as he walked around. Lord Stripetail

(Not stealing but finding a sword he likes)" Alright, but You'll have to be trained how to use it. "He picked out a sword and handed it to the otter. It was pretty big for the otter and he could barely lift it. " no, that one's too big for you. Try this one.' He put the sword back and picked out another one. This one wasn't as heavy and the otter could lift it much more easily. "Alright, let's begin. hold your sword in front of you with both paws, like this. " He drew the sword and showed the otter the proper gripping style. The otter quickly copied it." Good, good, now watch me." Lord Stripetail

Stripetail quickly made slashing moves with his sword, showing that he was qute skilled in swordplay. The otter tried to copy his moves and nearly hit Stripetail. He laughed. " What are you trying to do , hurt me?" He patted the otter on the head. "What's your name, young one?" Lord Stripetail

Well Tamon my young friend, a pleasure to meet you. I'm Lord Stripetail" He watched Tamon swing his sword around, trying to copy his moves but with little success' Ha Ha, You'll get better with time and practice Tamon. You'll get your chance to stab a stoat soon enough." Stripetail said with a smile on his face. He sheated his sword and watched Tamon continue swinging the sword. Lord Stripetail
