Hello all! The other-oooohhhhh-say, week or so, I was perusing the news blog on While I was there they were hosting this thing they called "This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament" [1] . At first I had no interest whatsoever in it, but as I looked closer,I thought: "Hey, this is cool". Then I thought: "Why don't we have one of these for Redwall?"
And so, after MUCH deliberation, I present to you "Grand Champion: A Redwall Character Tournament"! Read on to discover how I'm making it work. I hope it's good :)

How It Works

OK, so here's how I worked the thing (It took me about 2 weeks to do this, so cut me some slack if I get you confused about somethin'. I can post a chart too, if it'll help :) Anyways Here we go:


We start out with 2 brackets, Woodlander and Vermin. Each Bracket has 48 characters. These characters are paired up by species and-to some extent-character personality (to see these matches and divisions, see below) Anyways, this makes 24 matches. I'll post these matches as polls; then you guys will vote for the character you like best. The winners will then move on to Round 2, and so on...


Now we have a total of 24 characters and 12 matches


12 characters, 6 matches, etc etc.


Down to 6 guys and 3 matches.


Now things get a little interesting. Since 3 doesn't divide very well, we have to hold a character back for the next round. I figure the best way to figure out who is to draw them from a hat or somethin'. If you have a better idea, though, please tell me.


The final round of the bracket! The winner is the Grand Woodlander/Vermin, and will go up against the top other guy to determine the Grand Champion!

Starting Brackets

And now, prreeeesennnntimg, the characters! It took me quite a while to figure out which beasts to put in here. If we all agree that these characters are fine, I'll proceed with the tournament. Otherwise I can rework it a little. HERE THEY ARE:

    • Zwilt the Shade
    • Vilaya the Sable Quean

And there you have it! As long as everyone's in agreement over the starting brackets (You are the ones voting for the Grand Champion) I'll get the first round up (hopefully; I never know if I'll have the time) within the next week.
