After loping through an aphotic, muggy, and dense forest, your glistering eyes rest upon a clearing. Bounding for freedom from this caliginous jungle, you push your way through brush and trees. You emerge from the horrid place, to see the most beautiful sight you have ever seen. The sovereign mountain range ahead of you seemed to touch the stars themselves. A pulchritudinous waterfall flowed into a long, winding river from the side of the mountains. A large concavity surrounded by trees caught your eye as you sat down to savor the view.
The oppressive and immense amount of phosphorescent, moonlit land ahead of you looked almost enchanted as you placed a paw onto to the cribriform earth. Alacrity seemed to fill your body with a heavy dose of optimism as you look around. The many scents of an opulent variety of prey brings a smile to your face. Finally, something to eat. But not only the prey’s scent is around here. The scent of cats is strong here.
A pair of vigilant emerald eyes stares at you through a thick cluster of plants, and the feeling is enough for you to give in. As you swivel around, the unsuspected comes at you. What seems like a streak of ginger fur springs up, and you realise your mistakes. Encroachment on a Clan’s territory meant immediate death, You reasoned. But it was too late, as you felt an acuminate graze to your underbelly.
“What do you think you’re doing on LightClan territory, mousebrain?” Growled an elegant, yet truculent voice. The voice belonged to a young, mettlesome, and quite alluring ginger she-cat with large green eyes. She descended from above, and bit you quite hard, giving you a deep laceration on your shoulder. You gouged into her underbelly while it was exposed, and she yowled in pain. Recoiling, she resumed her place on the ground as you got up. Assuming an easy defeasance, you sat proudly, grinning.
“Hah! You thought I was done, did you know?” She smirked, seeming as immaculate as if she had never been in battle. “I’m Fireshade, Deputy of LightClan.” She introduced. It surprised you how she was already up. “Cloudstar sent me for you, she said for me to lead you here.” She smiled vivaciously. Her tone of voice changed in a very strange, capricious way. “Cloudstar will be wanting to see you. Follow me.”“This is camp.” She said as you approached the familiar impression in the earth. The cat-scent was stronger; it smelled warm and fragrant. Finally, after a tiring journey, you entered the camp. She exhaled with relief as she ensconced on the cushiony sod beneath her. With a grin, she said the following words.
“Welcome to LightClan, home of the United.”
We are always Recruiting
Domestic Cats Only
All Lower Ranks
LightClan's Cats are thin, agile, thick furred, and petite in body structure. LightClan cats fight with smarts, not strength, and can be very tricky to attack. We are great dodgers, climbers, and runners.
A LightClan cat's scent is very distinguishable by the aromatic scent of wildlife flora and fresh dew. The scent can be used on an OC page, or during a Roleplay.Description of Camp
(Click on the link above to explore Lightclan's territory!)
A small clearing in a valley filled with thick forest and brush. A river runs on one side of the camp, while the other is walled in by a large mountain. Vines hang from the trees and the sun hits the center, making it glow. If you go through one area, you see a huge hollow log with vines curtaining the entrance. To the right of it, you can see a nursery of bramble walls. The Warriors den is a large, leafy area, and the apprentices are a few moss nests around a large blooming tree. The leader's den is a lichen-draped area with a bit of moss inside for bedding. The medicine cat's den is a humid, jungle area caved into the rocks. There is a large patch where kits can explore around, and when our territory is under attack, where those sheltering in camp can hunt.
Above is a tour of our old camp!
Brightpaw has been killed by a dog. May Starclan light her path.
Skypaw has gone missing. We can't assume anything, and we will have warriors searching for him. We wish Skypaw good luck.
Cloudstar has kitted! Fireshade will take over while Cloudstar nurses her kits.
Our ally, Blizzardclan has disbanded. Their former leader: Shatteredstar has joined Lightclan as Taintedstream!
If you're name is Ashpelt, with the username of animaljam3321, please speak to Cloudstar or Fireshade. You have been inactive for over a month, without notifying us!
We have a new recruit! Silverclaw!
We are happy to welcome Smokepaw to Lightclan!
Featherpaw has been removed from the wiki page for being an inactive poo and for unbuddying his own clan leader.
Silverpaw has left Lightclan :(
Ashstar, Greypool, Badgerclaw, and Oakflower have left LightClan. May we remember them as loyal members to the Clan. Cloudsong will be Ashstar's Successor as Cloudstar, and Fireshade shall be the new Deputy. Emberpaw and Brightpaw will be assigned their new mentors by Cloudstar.
We warmly welcome Pantherkit and Mosskit to Lightclan!
Sageleaf has left Lightclan. May Starclan light her path.
Here are some of the activities our clan does when we are not following the basic schedule. Think of these as little breaks/games from the basic roleplay, while still keeping your skills in tact.</div></div></div></div></div>
In case you don't know what that is, is a battle between clan members. We will separate into two teams and the team that defeats the most cats wins. Sparring is a great way to prepare yourself for a battle with an enemy clan/pack/group. Here are the rules of sparring:1. Kits/Queens are prohibited in participating in sparring events. It is much too dangerous to put the youth and the mothers of our clan in a situation similar to a battle/raid.2.Sparring does not cause actual wounds. If you die during a match, your OC is not dead. Please do not use sparring as a source of drama3. Do not powerplay during sparring matches. Powerplaying is prohibited ANYWHERE in LightClan. Please don't try to take advantage of a fake battle, this is good practice for a real battle.
We will gather all our warriors/allies to plan for the right time to land an attack/raid when we are at war with another clan (Which is quite rarely). Battle Training is also involved when an upcoming battle is happening.Full Moon Gathering
A full moon Gathering happens every month, where we either invite or compile 3 other Clans to join us. They may not always be allies, but we will always have the one-night truce.
How a Gathering Usually Goes Down:
Sometimes we do silly stuff and talk, and other times it is more serious, and we converse about prophecies and the like. We will always start with an introduction, where the Leaders share their name and their Clan. Once this is completed, the gathering will commence. A silly gathering will always be with allies, but we will also have serious gatherings.
Rules For a Gathering:
You must remain silent during the announcements/introductions
Only 2 or 3 apprentices are allowed to the gathering.
You must state ahead of time if you won't be attending a gathering. If not, we will instead invite someone else to come with us.
Kits are forbidden to come to gatherings.
That's about all the rules you must follow.
Scroll down on information on how to enter a Gathering Application if you are interested. WE DO NOT accept 'Battle Requests' Similarly to how we do not accept 'Enemy Requests'.
This is when all the apprentices are gathered with all the mentors, and their skills are put to the test. Once they have been evaluated, they may be considered for ranking up. Please don't powerplay during this, as we say when we are sparring. Don't try to use this as an opportunity to show off. Please stay realistic and realize that you are an apprentice.
This gives you a basic idea of when and what we do during roleplay. If there is any confusion, let us know.
==Here is LightClan's Roleplay Schedule ==(PST or Pacific Standard Time, please convert if you are in a different time zone, we do not want any confusion)
Monday - Thursday: Usually 4:30 - 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM depending, I may not be on.
Friday: 4:30 - 5:00 PM to 8:30 PM, also depending.
Sat - Sun: All day (Ashstar will not be on all day however).1 Moon = 1 – 2 weeks depending on how fast the roleplay is going. Daily Schedule 4:30/5:00 - 4:45/5:15 = Clan meeting/attendance: These can run for any amount of time, but Clan Meetings are usually talking about Updates in the roleplay, and run from 5 – 12 minutes.4:45/5:15 - 5:00/5:30 = The first patrols are sent out, Apprentice Training, those left behind may battle train, talk, hunt, or rest.
5:00/5:30 - 5:15/5:45 = Patrol rotation
5:15/5:45 - 5:25/5:55 = Sparring match OR Monthly Gathering
5:25/5:55 - 6:00/6:40 = Break time. (Roleplay is kind of On/off during this period of time)

7:00/8:00 = Wrapping up, end of roleplay.
This is LightClan's Code of Conduct. You must follow this, and if any of these rules are broken, you shall meet a consequence, even a fatal one in extreme circumstances.
No spies, double clanning (Unless under moderation, or with permission from Ashstar) or any other kinds of role players that fall under the "Traitor" category.
If you have a mate from another clan, and you'd like to stay with them if they are expecting kits, you are allowed to join them as long as you promise to not speak about our Clan.
We believe strictly in the warrior code, and if it is broken, you will be punished.
1. Defend your Clan, even at the cost of your life. You may have friendships with cats from other clans, but your loyalty must remain with your clan, as one day you may meet them in battle.
2. Do not hunt, or trespass in other Clan's territory
3. Elders and kits must be fed before apprentices and warriors. Unless they have permission, apprentices may not eat until they have hunted and fed the elders.
4. Prey is killed only to be eaten. Thanks Starclan for its life.
5. A kit must be at least six moons old to become an apprentice.
6. Newly appointed warriors will keep vigil for one night after receiving their warrior name.
7. A cat can not become deputy without having at least mentored one apprentice.
8. The deputy will become the clan leader when the leader dies of retires
9. After the death of retirement of a deputy, a new deputy must be chosen.
10. A gathering of all 4 clans is held at the full moon during a truce that lasts for the night.
11.Boundaries must be checked and marked daily. Challenge all trespassing cats.
12. No warrior may neglect a kit in pain or in danger, even if that kit is from a different clan
13. The word of the clan leader is the warrior code.
14. An honorable warrior does not need to kill other cats to win his battles, unless they are outside the warrior code or it is necessary for self-defense.
15. A warrior rejects the soft life of a kittypet.
Please follow the dress code. If you break it once, you will be reminded. If you break it twice, there will be consequences, and we will go to extremes, such as banishment if you do not listen.
If you mistreat other members of your clan, there will be punishment.
Please wear your tag color when in camp or with your clan. It's fine if you don't wear your tag color when not roleplaying.
As long as you know how to roleplay properly, and give up your past ways, we are welcoming to loners / rouges / kittypets.
Do not look down upon a clanmate because of their past. The past is the past and they are one of us now.
Respect those with a higher rank than you, especially your Leader and Deputy.
Don't EVER harm your clanmates, EVER, especially Kits, Elders, and Queens.
The leader's word is law, if you disobey what your leader says, you will be punished.
If you are a Warrior, Apprentice, Deputy, Leader, Queen or Medicine Cat, you must either: Report to Ashstar if you are leaving for an extended period for reasons such as you're moving, grounded, going on vacation (or vaycay), work trips, or you're starting school and need to catch up. If you have left without notice, you will have 5 weeks before you are removed from the allegiances. Kits and Elders have it differently, for they do not need to be as active. As long as you have a verified excuse, you will stick on the Allegiances (Dawnkit is currently one of these people).
This is the heiarchy of all the cats of the Clan. Respect levels should run throughout, but certain ranks may have more authority, therefore you should listen to them.
The leader is the head of the Clan. They make important decisions, guide the clan in battles, and speak on behalf of the clan during Gatherings. This rank is the highest on the Heiarchy, and should be treated with the most respect.
The Queens are the mothers of the Clan. They each work together to nurse and care for the youth. Queens may also have a partner to help them raise their kits. This "Helping Hand" can either being a close friend or their mates.

Here are LightClan's hunting territories:
The River ~ Temple of Zios, a temperate rainforest with a beautiful blue river. This area's prey includes: Trout, carp, minnows, chubs, snakes, including adders, crows, and various birds and mammals. Prey is thriving here.
The Highstones ~ Mt Shiveer, a large mountain range in which the valley Camp is placed in, this area's prey includes: hares, finches, mice, rabbits, and voles. Prey is less lush, so this area is a last resort for hunting, yet it's a nice place to hide.
The Waterfall ~ Kimbara Outback, This area is more commonly used for training apprentices, since the ground is stable and smooth, perfect for battle training. This is the waterfall that feeds into the River. this area's prey includes: trout, carp, water shrews, and minnows. Prey is also quite common here.
We hunt in the server Comet.

Taking Care of Your Herbs:
Here is how a medicine cat should keep their herbs fresh and useable.
--If any herbs are wet, leave them out in the sun until they dry.
--Gather fresh herbs when your stock gets low.
--Leave enough of the herb on the plant you use for gathering it so it can reproduce
--Check your store often and throw out old herbs or herbs that have lost their healing qualities.

Holly Berries: A poisonous berry. Cats die almost instantly if they are consumed. If consumption if not intentional, use yarrow to get the berries out of the cat's stomach.

LightClan has certain rules for naming your OCs. Please read this if you are interested in joining, as it is sort of like a kind of dress code.
When creating an OC, please make sure your name follow this assortment of rules.
#1 Please don't name your Character after any character from the books
< #2 Make sure your OC has a unique name to all the cats in the clan. Look above at the allegiances to find which names are taken.
#3 Don't name your character after a religious subject, like Jesus or Allah.
#4 Make your name realistic and appropriate! We will not accept any names that sound domestic, like Princess or Sparkles. Also, childish names like "Pikachu" or "Billy Joe" Will be denied for OBVIOUS reasons. This also proves you are not serious enough. Also anything rude or offensive will be denied. Please don't test us or push the limits.
This section of the wiki is dedicated to the rules and information for the youth of the clan! It's currently work in progress, so be patient!
Our goal in LightClan is to make kits feel as free as possible and for them to have fun, but we have to be reasonable on their limitations. Kits shouldn't be confined to the nursery for six moons, yet they shouldn't be in the dangers of the world outside. We don't want any more death/drama!
Kits under one moon of age must be accompanied by their mother/an older cat.
Underaged apprentices are prohibited.
Kits may not leave the basic grasp of our territory. They must not leave Racheltheccl's den during the roleplay. This is not confined to camp, however! We have a safe patch north of the prisoner's den for kits to explore. A warrior/queen/apprentice must stay there though in case of fox attacks and other accidents.
Kits may have a theme song, as long as it's reasonable for a kit. Remember, we want you to have fun!
We will take in abandoned kits, because it is against the warrior code to leave them in danger. Silver will gladly care for them.
Kits in bad condition will not be apprenticed at six moons. We will wait for them to heal before they are assigned a mentor.
Nursery Activities ==
We really don't want our kits to be bored. The last thing we want is for them to run away and get bitten by a snake or suchlike. There are some indoor and outdoor activities for the kits listed below. Outdoor means outside one of the dens in camp.
Mossball - Outdoor - Mossball is a game to help our kits gain the agility and muscles they need for their apprentice training once they reach six moons.
Stories - Indoor - Raincloud loves visits from kits! He will gladly tell a story upon request. He's pretty active, and will tell stories such as LightClan Family Trees, our Founding Four's Story, and suchlike. This will give kits some knowledge of the clan, along as a nice source of entertainment.
Mouse and Warrior - Outdoor - Where two kits roleplay as a mouse and a hunting warrior. (Got this idea from BSP and Leopardkit and Patchkit X3) Make sure not to argue! Everyone needs a turn.
Exploration - Outdoor - An Apprentice, Warrior, or Queen will take a group of kits who would like to explore the top corner of camp (The Misty Forest).
Vine Bat - Indoor or Outdoor - A long and sturdy vine hung from a wall for kits to bat around or play with. Also helps kits gain upper body strength.
Should it be a warrior duty to recruit daily?
