Your paws are weary from your travels, each step even more torturous than the last. You could hear joyous sounds in the distance, the sound like music to your ears. Looking up only made the scene even more unreal, the light filtering in through the trees giving everything an alluring scene.
The different shades of green and yellow speckling the ground, the sound of water in the distance beckoning you forward. The twigs and moss underfoot slowly begins to give way to a more solid ground, pebbles and mud clearing the path straight to the water. Beyond the trees is a sheet of pure light, nothing identifiable beyond the treeline.
The mud eases the pain in your paw pads, each step becoming a little lighter than the one before. Your surroundings are lost to you as you slip out of the tree line, faced with a beautiful waterfall. The trees surrounding the waterfall give it a calm feel, as if this place has always been peaceful. The mesmerizing feel of the area around you drags you closer to the waters edge, your own pain blinding you to what's around you.
You relish in the feeling of the cool water against your suffocating pelt, the heat almost unbearable. Your paws suffer no longer as the water coats them, easing the pain you once felt.
"Are you alright,"A soft feminine voice sings out from your left, startling you.
You back away slowly, your hackles raised at the green eyed she cat. She gives you a soft look, as if she understands your injury and your pain. You relax slowly, taking a look at the cats still playing in the water. The cat in front of you stands in front of a black tom, his muzzle grey with age. His piercing blue eyes are pinned to you with a curious look, a black and brown tom on his right while a similar she cat stands to his left.
"Kestrel, get me some dock please,"The she cat in front of you murmurs quietly, the tom on the right taking off.
"Are you okay,"The black tom repeats the she cats earlier question, looking at you.
You remain quiet, unsure of the right or wrong answer. The smaller tom returns to the she cats side, dropping the herbs at her paws. She doesn't ask you anything as the tugs at you with her tail, bringing you from the water. She begins to chew the herbs brought to her, forcing your paws upward so she may treat them.
"Are you looking for sanctuary,"The black tom tries again, looking at you worriedly.
"Yes,"You reply finally, not meeting the toms icy blue gaze.
"Then you may find it here, Welcome to the Abyssclan territory,"He replies calmly, his eyes warm for such an icy color.
You nod softly, your gaze warming slightly as you take in the hyper clan. They are all in different positions from laying peacefully in the sun to playing in the water, everything about them relaxed and joyful.
"This is a beautiful home,"You murmur softly, hope blooming in your chest.

Wild Flame, you will always be an untamed flame that protected instead of harmed,"-Thistlefur, Tribute to Wildflame.
"Our time is up, the years we spent together. As your sister, I will never forget you. Your life affected mine in ways I never would have thought, ways I never even realized. Our mornings before class will go by with silence now, no one to wave me off as we part ways at the intersection. You will no longer be standing there leaning against the fence, waiting for me at the intersection after school. I wish our time together hadn't come to an end, but I will hold every memory of you until we meet again. May our lives forever intertwine, and may our destiny carry on into the next life,"-Goldenstrike, Tribute to Wildflame

•If a mentor and apprentice pairing are both kik users and are in the AbyssClan group chat they can train on kik within the group chat. If a mentor is unable to get on aj but can get on kik, this will help continue the process of training.
•If an apprentice requests a new mentor, even if theirs is active, it will lead to an assessment of that warriors skills. If no problem is found with that warriors skills then the apprentice's request will be denied. IF another request is set in place with valid reasoning then an assessment on that reason will be put forth, if the request proves true then it will be accepted and if not it will be denied.
•Any Senior warriors wishing to take on more than 1 apprentice must first ask for permission and prove that their original apprentice is to inactive, uncooperative, or close to becoming a warrior. If the apprentice is uncooperative, it is to be reported immediately to either the leader or deputy. Following this will be an assessment of their skills and if they fail to pass, they will be given a new mentor. If the new mentor has the same problems the apprentice will be trained by whoever wishes to train them the days they get on.
•New warriors will get apprentices that know how to roleplay, even if its horrible, and apprentices that understand what they are doing.

Here is how the name came to be... There was once a time where sinful and corrupted cats ruled the Abyss. The nefarious cats schemed together to plan a raid against Starclan but not all felt the same about attacking. So they left. The cats traveled to Starclan's border where they met Starclan members. They informed the cats of the Abyss' plans, another division of malicious felines unheard of to Starclan. The Starclan cats had gone to warn the rest of their clan. The night afterwards, cats from all of Starclan gathered and attacked the wicked cats of the Abyss, being lead to their base by the cats who warned them. The vile felines were defeated for they were shocked and unprepared. The Abyss became free of cruel cats and Starclan was thankful for their efforts to help. It was decided to grant those cats who warned Starclan a second chance to deem themselves worthy of being a Starclan cat. Those few felines were reborn into Shadowclan and learned the ways of the clan. Later, they left and formed Abyssclan, where their faith became everlasting.

Free Chat is not a required thing to join this clan. Knowing if you have free chat or not helps us know what things you are capable of saying and what things you cannot. This is especially important in apprentices, we need to know so we can place you with a mentor you can actually learn with.
Celebrating the lives of those who have passed on and watch over us. We will hunt until sun high and feast as the sun begins to set in the distance and those who have passed begin to look upon us.
We will celebrate the cat who brought us this clan and will remain a story told as the ages go on. We will tell the stories of the old and keep them in mind for the future to come. We will forever Celebrate the life Spottedstar gave to us.
Announced the first of every month
We will celebrate our many moons of training, battles, and happy days with a contest of skill. Cats of the clan, and allies, will be able to join in as long as they have checked in with the host, Abyssclan. Claws will be sheathed in these contests, any signs of claw use will get you banned from participating again. The contests will be held in high spirits and peace. Each cat will be placed into a randomized bracket which will then be posted(under Festival of Combat) and as you win you move up to the next round.
We will celebrate the life that has been brought into the clan with a day of peace. There will be no roleplay unless that's what the clan desires. There will be no aggressive or dramatic roleplaying unless it is through training.
This is a festival that will be celebrated through a show of skills. We will not be facing up against each other but instead show the rest of the clan our own personalized talents. From hunting techniques to hiding techniques we will all share which ever ones we wish to and only if we want to.
Adventure Based Holiday
This holiday is celebrated whenever the clan decides to. This is an adventure based holiday where a large group of the clan will go on an adventure (like Battle for the Beacon) and spend time together like family/friends.
Takes place the last week of every month
This Celebration will be held to celebrate our bonds of friendship with our allies. There will be sparring matches, hunting, wrestling for kits, and even herb contests for the medicine cats. The herb contest will be about who has the most creative ideas for healing a cat. Hunting contests will be about whoever can catch the most prey in under 5 minutes (I will time it). Sparring will be whoever can pin their opponent by the throat in under 10 minutes, the match must last longer than 5 minutes. Wrestling matches will be about whichever kit can pin their opponent in under 5 minutes. Kits will also have a Scavenger hunt.
This is a moment where we will honor the death of Wildflame. In his honor there will be no roleplay on this day, only a day to restore peace within ourselves and our lives.He may not have been known well within the clan, but he did more behind the scenes than any of you knew.
The tan and orange pelts of the cats blend in with the constantly shifting sand, the light reflecting off of it like a wild fire. This place has little cover during the summer months, the sun baring down on the baked dry earth. The small river within this area of the territory doesn't dry up in the summer, but the water does get a bit warm. The prey here is plentiful all year round due to the temperature never falling below 80. This territory is a beautiful place, one of shifting sands and colorful prey.
This is a perfect hunting spot for cats who hunt like the tribes, the mud and trees provide perfect shelter for those trying to use stealth to their advantage. Outsiders often get stuck in the mud, having not been used to the thick substance covering a majority of the territory. This territory is a wonderful place to test your endurance and your tree climbing abilities, both vital parts of every warriors life.
Even though Kimbara’s heat may sway the mind from entering there are plentiful pools that lies ahead. The pools are deep and are chock full of many fish as well as many types of prey. The soft sand is perfect for evening naps as well as cover for cats with tan fur. It is said that it is an old twoleg area because of the times we find them here.
This territory is in constant use, the dense forest provides a moderate temperature all year round. Rain falls steadily within this territory, sometimes never ceasing until the next sunrise. The prey here is large all year round, despite the harsh winters that fall upon even this territory. The snow doesn't blanket the ground often, but when it does the entire clan knows it isn't safe to venture out to far. Despite the severe weather change this territory is where the clan spends most of it's time due to the temperature being moderate.This territory also holds scents from the past, although long since abandoned the clan believes it is proof that others were here way before us and that their secrets remain hidden within the crumbling fortress.
The cold weather alone would make a cat fearful of this place, but it's truly astonishing. Prey and plants may be scarce, but it has its benefits. A great place to clear one's mind. The hot spring that bubbles from the source even holds secrets of its own. There is a thin sheet of ice, however, that proves predator to any cat. It's a good place to practice a cat's awareness of such things.
This clearing is almost impossible to reach without the aid of someone who knows the way to the entrance. This clearing itself is surrounded by thick trees whose trunks stand tightly together, as if fate had destined it to be made this way. A small tunnel underneath the trunks of one of the trees stands as the entrance, the walls of the tunnel being made of stone. It isn't quite clear how the stone tunnel got there, or how the clearing came to be but the clan is safe within this hollow. The temperature stays moderate all year round, even when snow is falling upon the uppermost branches of the large trees.
