INFORMATION

• Clan Character: Contented, sleek, well fed. Long fur and glossy coats. They love beautiful things and often collect rocks, shells, and feathers for their dens. They do not fear water.

• Prey: Mainly fish but also water voles, shrews, and mice.

• Significant Clan Leaders: Riverstar, Crookedstar, Leopardstar, Mistystar

WARRIOR CODE

1. 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.

2. Do not hunt or trespass on another Clan's territory.

3. 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.

4. Prey is killed only to be eaten. Give thanks to StarClan for its life.

5. A kit must be at least six moons old to become an apprentice.

6. Newly appointed warriors will keep a silent vigil for one night after receiving their warrior name.

7. A cat cannot be made deputy without having mentored at least one apprentice.

8. The deputy will become Clan leader when the leader dies, retires or is exiled.

9. After the death or retirement of the deputy, the new deputy must be chosen before moonhigh.

10. 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.

11. Boundaries must be checked and marked daily. Challenge all trespassing cats.

12. No warrior can neglect a kit in pain or danger, even if the 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/her battles, unless they are outside the warrior code or if it is necessary for self-defense.

15. A warrior rejects the soft life of a kittypet.

16. 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.

Exceptions

17. Cats on their way to the Moonpool are allowed to cross other Clans' territories to get to their destination.

18. Cats may travel on other Clan territories if they have something to report or ask for help.

19. 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.

Additional Rules

The following rules are not specifically stated in the warrior code, but are expected to be followed:

21. Medicine cats may not have a mate or kits.

22. Kits must stay in camp until they are apprenticed, and are not allowed to hunt.

23. The safety of the Clan is more important than the safety of one cat.

24. Clans must not unite together to drive out another Clan.

25. Clans must not force another Clan to share territory.

26. Enemy patrols must not attack cats if they are on a mission all four Clans agree on.

Characteristics

C L A N ● C H A R A C T E R

Clever and Strong, RiverClan cats are known to be boastful and they are perfectionist. So a kit being born with a disability is frown upon. RiverClan cats can be very flirtatious and romantic. RiverClan cats are very hostile towards intruders outside of RiverClan and will do anything to protect their Clan.

P H Y S I C A L ● P R O P E R T I E S

Mostly consisting on medium-longhair and longhair cats, their fur sheds water like duck feathers so it does not weigh them down. RiverClan has the most brightly color coats out of all the Clans and the most diverse with their pelts. They are also medium size in height though some cats are larger and smaller then average.

STARCLAN SPEAKS

Crookedstar Speaks:

RiverClan cats have always been viewed with suspicion by the other Clans because of our skill at swimming, and our fondness for getting our paws wet. We descend mostly from cats who did not come from the mountains to settle in the forest; those wind-tossed, open-air loving cats had no wish to live among the close, whispering reeds, or dive underwater to catch fresh-kill. Instead, our first ancestors were those who saw the potential of the river for providing food in every season -food that would be safe from the other Clans because of its watery shelter. Our diet of fish made our grow glossy and thick, better suited to keeping out the chill of the waves, and the while other Clans scorned our plain, reed-rattled dens, we made them charming with feathers and moss and other trinkets we could collect along the shore.

Our warriors can fight as bravely as any, but we are called lazy and cowardly by the other Clans because we rarely venture into battle. We have no need: If no cats are willing to soak their paws crossing the river to attack us, why should we pick battles with them? The exception was Sunningrocks. Those rocks were ours! When cats first settled in the forest, the river flowed on both sides, cutting them off from ThunderClan and leaving them a short swim from our camp. The river changed direction, giving ThunderClan dry-paw access to the rocks, and those greedy cats instantly claimed them as their own. More blood was shed trying to take them back than I care to remember. Sunningrocks was won and lost, won and lost, every season until we finally left the forest.

Now every Clan lives beside water, although we are still the only cats that swim for our prey. At first we settled on the island, but when StarClan sent the tree bridge, it was claimed as our new Gathering place, so we have made our territory around a stream that flows into the lake. We have been threatened by curious Twoleg kits and a poisonous pool, but RiverClan quietly endures, taking pride in our independence and our strong-swimming cats.

CREED

Doubling Clan or Double Grouping:

If you are caught, Doubling Grouping or Doubling Clanning then it is straight exile. There will be no explaining about anything and you will be marked on our Watching list. Doubling Clanning is when you are in RiverClan as well as another Clan. Doubling Grouping is the same but with any other group like packs, tribes. We will look your username up before deciding to accept you. If your username is on a another page then you will not be accepted until you send a message and leaving the group.

Ranks and Joining:

RiverClan will always be recruiting cats. Despite the fact that RiverClan is always recruiting, all ranks will not be available. The ranks will not be available to join as is Leader, Deputy, Senior Warriors, Medicine Cat and Kits. Kits must be either born into RiverClan or adopted into RiverClan by a queen willing to nurse you. If you are a kit and a apprentice you must have a name that goes with the river. The Deputy is chosen by the leader and the senior warriors are often the most skilled warriors. The Medicine Cat is chosen by the former medicine cat. The ranks always needed will most likely be Warriors and Apprentices. Either Warriors will be needed or Apprentices depending on the number of the two ranks. If you join as a older cat please know that this does not put you as a senior warrior automatic. You must work for the Senior Warrior and Deputy Rank.

Genetics:

Your OCs must be genetically sound meaning, your OC can not be an impossible mix. For more information please go the Roleplay Guide

Random Generators:

You must follow the Random generator, for more information please go to the Roleplay Guide

Drama:

Drama is in every roleplay, but there will be no excessive drama in RiverClan. Excessive Drama means being killed off when you just healed from a battle. Trying to start a war between a different clan and trying to take over the Clan without the leader's approval. If you do this, you will be warned one time to stop. The next time you do this you will be exiled.

Promotions and Demotions:

Promotions and Demotions need to be wise choices. Promoting a cat because they are your mate or best friend is not acceptable. To promote a cat they must been in RiverClan for a reasonable amount of time and done things for RiverClan that was not neccessary. Remember a deputy can not been chosen unless they have mentored at least one apprentice. Only leader's demote cats but this should be only for a good reason. A Leader can give a cat apprentice duties only as a punishment. A Medicine Cat can demote their apprentice for a punishment.

Member Rights:

Cats in the Clan has right but understand ranks have more rights than others. Kits have little to no rights and must obey older ranking cats for their own protection. Apprentices have a lot more rights than kits but this is due to new responsibilities. Warriors have much more rights than Apprentices but still must obey the Leader, Deputy and Medicine Cat. The Medicine Cat has more rights than the Medicine Cat apprentices. Senior warriors have more rights with warriors because of their experience. Warriors are just as equal as other warriors and can not abuse their power.

Mates:

All Mates must be in RiverClan. If you join and have a mate than your mate must join. If your mate is in other clans than you must either have your mate to join or break the relationship. This is not to be rude, this is a part of the Warrior Code. If you are discovered having a forbidden relationship, then you will be exiled or you will break the relationship.

Half-Clan Kits:

If you have kits that are half-clan then you will be greatly punished. If the kit's mother is in RiverClan then the kits will stay where they are but they will be judged heavily for their parents choice. If the kit's mother is out of RiverClan then RiverClan will demand for the kits. If not handled over then RiverClan will be willing to fight. You may be sent to the prisoner den and do apprentices duties for 6 moons or until your kits are apprentices.

Powerplay:

You will not powerplay in RiverClan and will be given three times to stop. If you do not stop and it is the third time then you will be exiled from RiverClan. Powerplay is when you have a big power or do things that cats can not do. Powerplay also includes nn,nm, nd,nh and etc. If you are fatally wounded or you are a kit getting carried then you can not dodge that move.

Activity:

If you join then You Must Roleplay at least once with the Clan. You can not leave 8 hours after joining because no one is on. Everyone has a life outside of animal jam and not understanding that is simply childish. If you are not active for a week then you will be remove from the roster. If you can not get online then please message me and I will excuse you.

Leaving:

If you leave then RiverClan will not make a big deal but understand this is not a hotel. If you leave twice then you be mark on the Watching List. If you leave a third time then you will not be welcomed back.
