Act I: Lilygrove[]
The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Act I

Sophia Ryemaid, a new recruit for the Lilygrove Scout Corps, and the fiancé of fellow Scout Liam Rivermouse, begins her official training at a course located right outside of Lilygrove. Sophia completes a series of challenges and tasks to prove she is ready to be a Scout. Upon Sophia's graduation, Lilygrove is attacked by rats led by Scumsnout the Wearet, throwing the village into chaos.

Sophia heads towards Lilygrove to light the village's lighthouse and alert other nearby towns that they need help, but a large crew of sea rats steadily makes their way towards the village as well. She escapes into the Lilygrove Catacombs, where she sneaks past sea rats to find an injured and poisoned Liam captured by Scumsnout. Sophia calls out to Scumsnout in an effort to distract him, and the villain soon gives chase through Lilygrove. Sophia reaches the top of the village Lighthouse and successfully lights it, calling in reinforcements from all across Redwall country. However, just as she relishes in her victory, Scumsnout appears and throws her from the Lighthouse.

Act II: The Wraith[]

Sophia survives the lengthy fall from the Lighthouse, and rouses to the clang and crash of battle. Navigating the town around her, she assists her fellow scouts in defeating Scumsnout's rats. With her betrothed, Liam, deeply wounded, Captain Robin Springhunter sends Sophia through Mossflower Woods to Winsome Wraith, the residence of his healer friend, Valo Scrimpaw.

Along the route, Liam and Sophia encounter numerous rats, as well as Lilygrove residents in need of rescue. Everyone finally gathers at Camp Silversands, where an escape from Cheesethief is made. As Sophia, Liam, Tussa Pawsnettle, and their new friend Glimber attempt to continue on their trek, Scumsnout reappears. Sophia distracts him, causing the wearet to fall into a pit.

The travelers arrive at Winsome Wraith, where Valo Scrimpaw greets them.

Act III: The Abbey[]
The Lost Legends of Redwall: The Scout Act III

Sophia, Liam, Glimber, and Tussa arrive at the home of Valo Scrimpaw and his family. Liam's wounds need more advanced treatment, and Valo refers the crew to the healers at Redwall Abbey.

Cheesethief interrupts their gathering and takes Bolo Scrimpaw, while the others flee into the swamp. Valo, Mila Scrimpaw, Sophia, Liam, Glimber, and Tussa meet local resident Jebediah Starthistle, who helps them develop a plan to find Bolo and reach Redwall.

The group heads north, where after encountering Cheesethief again it's revealed that he was in cahoots with Bolo, and they had conducted an elaborate ruse in order for the sea rats to capture Valo.

While en route to Redwall, Scumsnout reveals himself to be alive. Pursuing Sophia, he meets his end at last. The group finally reaches Redwall Abbey, where Liam is healed.

  • In addition to featuring several characters from Redwall, the game makes a number of references to other books in the series, notably Mossflower and The Bellmaker.
  • Among the items the player can collect as they progress through the game are the memoirs of Gingivere Greeneyes and the will of his father Verdauga.
  • Liam's family is stated to have previously lived in Southsward, more specifically in Castle Floret.
  • Glimber mentions Egbert the Scholar by his mole name of Soilburr.
  • Liam's dialogue of "Boil 'em', mash 'em, stick 'em in a soup!" while collecting potatoes is a reference to the nearly identical line spoken by Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.
  • A line William attributes to Jethro - "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few." - is a word for word quote from the film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
  • Captain Snow's dialogue, beginning with "To feed or not to feed," parodies the famous "To be or not to be" soliloquy from William Shakespeare's Hamlet.
