Soon after the last of the woodlanders had gathered the lookouts mounted on the walls spotted a cloud of dust approaching the abbey. "She does not even mask her approach she must be very confident in her hoards power"
The abbot was beside Stripetail on the walls "we have all the food and water we could need right here inside the walls so a siege should be little problem its the fighting itself we should be worried about they are superior in numbers and skill is there nothing we can do to end this quickly as i fear a prolonged assault could spell doom for us"
As the army fast appreaches, a young mouse walks down the path towards the Abbeys main gates. He had a dagger at each of his sides, a sword on his back & a walking stick in his paw. Tibbarius stood at the front gate. He knocked on the gate loudly with his walking stick. Leaning against the wall the young mouse waited for a response from whoeever was inside.

Stripetail quickly opened the Gates And ushered Tibbarius in.' Inside, quickly" Once Tibbarius was safely inside, Stripetail closed the gates, as he did, he heard the thud of an arrow hitting the gates. "It has begun.' He said aloud. Turning to Tibbarrius, he smiled. "welcome to Redwall. I'm Lord Stripetail. And you are?" Lord stripetail
As stripetail interviewed the latecomer the abbeys archers and slingbeasts set to work on the opposing forces they were few but accurate and many enemies were slain. Sophia and gridell were commanding the forces but Gawr was managing to get her archers to loose some shafts they were clattering harmlessly of the wall but it was obvious that this would not be the case for long
"Pleased to meet you Lord Stripetail. My name is Tibbarius Ariture Senton Rayth but you can call me Tibb. So I guess you already know about the hordes of vermin heading this way then." He said as he looked around the beautifull Abbey grounds.

"we'll have to talk later' Stripetail drew his staff and raced up the stairs to the landing on the top of the wall. Arrows were flying over the defender' heads and landing harmlessly in the grass. But The ferocity of the onslaught was increasing. Stripetail called out 'sheldus' and he became enfused with a bright light. Arrows that came near him dropped at his feet. He looked down at the the horde and pointed his staff at them "flamis" A bright flashed down at the horde, striking several vermin and setting them aflame. The pained Cries of vermin filled the air. he ran across the landing, parrying arrows with his staff and blasting away at the vermin. He reached Sophia and ducked down. "hello Sophia, I've come to help. JHow goes the battle?" Lord stripetail

(she posted as recently as yesterday. Pm her and tell her about the RP) "So far, so good then. We are merely in the begining stages of a long fight. Rhita is a crafty creature, and who knows what tricks she may have up her sleeve" Stripetail said.
"That reminds me a groupe of ferrets split away from the main group and circled round the abbey they havent yet returned I meant to tell you sooner but i was busy and forgot" Said gridell frantically as he ducked an arrow
