Thanks to KimberkandyKakes ( wikia contributor ) and maeve23 ( CoolnessForeverrr ) for the intro! Me likey :D
The water rippled lightly as you padded through the dark and lush forest...
Your instincts told you to run as fast as physically possible. You were running desperately for your life, The large, broad-faced dog chasing after your every paw-step. The rapid life-to-death situation made your head fill with dizzy-spilled questions. If you died now, it seemed everything before this moment would merely fade to dust...
You made a sharp corner-turn, and darted up a tall, rotting oak tree before the large, old, big tree fell down. As your intestines made the slightest whimper you could muster, and before you knew it, the tree fell on the sluggish dog creature. You carefully skidded down, and darted to an even deeper part of the forest, Only to find a scent marker just a few tail-lengths away. Ignoring the sharp smell, you bolted over the stream that marked the edge of the border, only to notice a rabbit.
As you noticed your famished belly, you wanted food as soon as possible. So, you leaped at the rabbit, mistakingly tripped on a leaf and fell. You fell asleep at the same time..
You woke up sometime later, with the same rabbit you were chasing right next to you. It was killed and caught. Not only that, but you were in a nest! " How peculiar.. " You thought.
As you got up, you started to walk. You walked for hours, waiting for a cat to appear to help you.....
( 1 hour later.. )
As you took one more step onto a dead, dry, and crumbled leaf. Your entire body ached, you'd give just about anything for the warmth of a nest, and the delight of a tasty morsel between your jaws. A small, lithe orange-and-brown she-cat stormed out of the bushes, leaping in-front of you, only a tail length away. You wanted to yelp out in terror, still traumatized from the attack of the dog, he feared this would be no different. " Who are you, and how dare you enter NightClan territory?! " The she-cat said, as she looked at your shameful body. You started to reply, "I-I'm Insert name here, and I want.. to join your clan. May I?" After that, she replied, " Hmm, you want to come to our camp? You didn't seem to be scared, and that's good if you want to join." You started to speak, but then she silenced you while slapping her tail to your muzzle. " Come on! Let's go.. "
You padded on and breathed in the damp, misty air. " When can we stop? My paws are aching! " You meowed questioningly, and she left a stinging reply. " Oh yeah? And I thought you were WANTING to come! I guess I might as well drop you off at this tree!" " Please, No! I've nowhere else to go, Leave me here and I may very-well be dead, even if I don't starve." You said, your voice quavered with anxiety. Your sentence seemed to have puzzled the she-cat. She tilted her head before giving her ear a quick flick.
The she-cat beside you dropped into a low crouch, relying on her back haunches, ignoring your complaints. You stopped to release the tense emotions of being in a unfamiliar land, breathing in the cold, musty forest air, When the strong familiar scent of mouse-meat made your whiskers tingle with excitement. She turned to face you with the furry creature clamped between her jaws. "We're almost there. I was supposed to be hunting before I found you scampering about like a lost doggy. " The she-cat said with pure amusement glistening in her eyes. "Ey, try to keep up would you? Faster we go the less it hurts!" She meowed out as she stirred up enough energy.... "Wh-whats that supposed to mean huh?!" You meowed, half confused, half angry. The She-cat spun into a mad dash, Pelting forward to the camp entrance. You struggled to keep up with the slim, broad shouldered she-cat. Your whiskers twitched with the unfirmiliar scents of the massive camp. Breathing deeply with a rasp of your throat, you turned to see the she-cat beside you scrambling her way to highrock, to speak with the leader. You cleared your throat to take in the surrounding smells. Everywhere, plants covered the sloped earth, lush grass spread across the den's of the cats, and finally as you glared into the distance.. A few words echoed through your mind, " This.. is home. "
Defend your Clan, even with your life. You may have friendships with cats from other Clans, but your loyalty must remain to your Clan, as one day you may meet them in battle.
Do not hunt or trespass on another Clan's territory.
Elders, queens, and kits must be fed before apprentices and warriors. Unless they have permission, apprentices may not eat until they have hunted to feed the elders. If any warrior or apprentice is sick or injured, they may eat while the elders, queens, and kits are eating.
Prey is killed only to be eaten. Give thanks to StarClan for its life.
A kit must be at least six moons old to become an apprentice.
Newly appointed warriors will keep a silent vigil for one night after receiving their warrior name.
A cat cannot be made deputy without having mentored at least one apprentice.
The deputy will become Clan leader when the leader dies, retires or is exiled.
After the death or retirement of the deputy, the new deputy must be chosen before moonhigh.
A Gathering of all four Clans is held at the full moon during a truce that lasts for the night. There shall be no fighting among Clans at this time.
Boundaries must be checked and marked daily. Challenge all trespassing cats.
No warrior can neglect a kit in pain or danger, even if the kit is from a different Clan.
The word of the Clan Leader is the warrior code.
An honorable warrior does not need to kill other cats to win his/her battles, unless they are outside the warrior code or if it is necessary for self-defense.
A warrior rejects the soft life of a kittypet.
Each Clan has the right to be proud and independent, but in times of trouble they must forget their boundaries and fight side by side to protect the four. Each Clan must help the others so that no Clan will fall.
Cats on their way to the Moonstone or Moonpool are allowed to cross other Clans' territories to get to their destination - WindClan grounds on the moorland and ThunderClan grounds by the lake, in the forest.
At the lake, cats may travel on other Clans' grounds as long as they are within two fox-lengths of the lake; for instance, to go to a Gathering.
Cats may travel on other Clan territories if they have something to report or ask for help.
The code is flexible about leadership challenges. Cats may challenge a weak or cruel leader if their Clan is in danger, and if their leadership threatens the Clan, the code expects a warrior to challenge their leader.
We've made new members! They're: Moonpaw, a medic apprentice, Birdwing, a warrior, and our new apprentice, Icepaw.
At the Gathering Of Leaders, we've decided to have a Gathering every Saturday at 3:00 PM Central.
Great day! We've recruited Darkshade, made Icepaw a warrior, Iceclaw, and we made Birdwing a elite warrior and deputy! :)
NightClan has succesfully stolen a piece of DewClan's territory, Mt. Shiveer!
A great day! We invited Greyheart, Blackheart, Crisis, and SilentClaw! SilentClaw became deputy, then leader because Poppystar stepped down of Old Age, became PoppyDawn, and died of Old Age. Also we had a gathering and shockingly, DewClan has been stealing prey! They're now added onto neutral. RainClan has been taken out of the 4 Clan system, and, we're now looking for an extra Clan!
 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< NEWSLETTER FOR OLD NEWS<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Retired she-cats/toms. To be a elder you must either have a major injury that will not allow you to stay a warrior or become any other rank, or you are over 70 moons and wish to retire. Highly Respected by all ranks, and you may ask them for advice, even you, Kits! ∞
We have JUST A TINY BIT OF RULES. But don't let that spook you!
Black tags! Please have black tags because if you don't, we'll think you're doubleclanning, and you'll be exiled for life.
Be serious! Please be serious, unless the leader is joking around. You'll have 2 warnings, then you'll be kicked.
No Doubleclanning! Doubleclanning will result in a immediate exile because it's possible that you're giving info to the other Clan involved. Also, I do a search every month to check the wiki incase you're doubleclanning.
These consequences are sorted out with the Warrior Code. If you don't remember, go up and check it out.
If you don't defend your clan with your life, or you back up from a fight, or you fight your own clan: You can be exiled, or even slaughtered with the clan watching. Backing from a fight is allowed for Medicine Cats, Elders, Kits(, and Apprentices rarely), though.
If you trespass or hunt on another clan's territory, you will spend time in the prison den.
If you eat before elders, queens, and kits, you will also spend time in the Prison Den.
If a cat doesn't see you give thanks to StarClan for it's life as an apprentice, you will be scarred.
If a kit wants to become an apprentice BEFORE it's 6 moons old, it will have to wait 2 more moons until it's apprentice ceremony.
If a cat sees a newly appointed warrior sleeping, the newly appointed warrior will be scarred on the belly.
If a warrior wants to be deputy and he/she hasn't mentored an apprentice at least once, he/she will be exiled.
This is an unknown consequence and the clan will decide. They will decide either scarring and exile, or do a poll to choose who's leader.
If leader doesn't choose before moon-high, he/she will not be able to choose warrior/apprentice/elder/queen names for a moon, and the deputy will. ( sorry deputy )
If NightClan starts a fight, all upgrades in ranks will be stopped for a month/moon. If the cats trespassing you do not challenge, and you don't speak it, and someone finds the scent, We will surely put you in the prison den for a moon.
If you neglect a kit in pain or danger and are found doing it, You will either be scarred and exiled or brought to death.
If you don't obey the leader's word, you will be exiled with the clan watching.
If you are and honored warrior and you kill in your fights, you will be brought to death or exiled.
If you join in the kittypet life, and you are found hunting or fighting on our territory, you will be killed or scarred.
If our clan fails to help others, the leader will choose any punishment for the whole clan. ( can't be exile, death, or time in prison. ) You may NOT scar some cats you don't like the look of.
This is basically where all our events go. If you want to suggest one, please put it in the comments or notify me on AnimalJam.
🎃 Black Moon 🎃
In this event, we call it the Black Moon, and it's named after Halloween. Better get your creepiest stories, because this is when EVERYONE tells stories! Even the kits do. Mind you, if you don't want to tell stories, tell everyone you don't want to tell a story, because if you don't, people will be bugging you to XD. Games, and activities are to be included soon.
❄ Frost Sky ❄
When the Frost Sky appears, known as Christmas, everyone gifts people stuff. :3 Same thing for Black Moon if you don't want to, but just different as the part where you say you don't tell stories becomes the part where you actually say: " Don't gift me, I don't gift you! " Games and activities are to be included soon.
🌿 Leaf-down 🌿
This event is almost completely different from The Black Moon and The Frost Sky. In this part, the event is actually an event. You CAN participate if wanted, but there will be 2 different events in this. These events are:
The Hunting Event: In this event you will hunt your best, and the best hunter will be chosen by the most skill and highest amount of prey.
The Fighting Event: In this event you will fight your best, and the best fighter will be chosen by the most skill.
Games and activities are to be included soon.
🐇 Rabbit Run 🐇
In this event, you might notice the amounts of rabbit in the fresh-kill pile increasing. When the clan almost has ONLY rabbits in the pile, the event begins. What happens is that EVERYONE, besides kits ( not allowed UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ), queens, and elders if they choose no, has to chase at least 6 rabbits. When they come back, we will have the leader come down from the watching rock and tell the winner.
Winner is chosen by:
Skill: The fastest runner, and the one with most rabbits.
Agility: The one most able to bend itself at will to catch a rabbit.
Games, fun, and activities are to be included soon.
These are for cats that are being warned for exile.
Remember that in 4 days of offline, your exile is here, and you will be unbuddied from my list to make room for actually active and good roleplayers. The thing that actually counts is being at camp for atleast 1 hour and roleplaying. Members of TH will have 1 day until demotion, then 3 days after that until exile.
