● THE AWAKENING ●


"May the sins of the unworthy be baptized in blood and fear."


You padded out of the unknown group's sanctuary, hoping that nobody saw you take the frail vole. As soon as you were out of sight, you dashed away. You run desperately through the trees, limp prey crammed hastily in your mandibles. As you dart away, three dark shadows follow, only silhouettes under the pale light of the moon. They were gradually gaining on you, their details becoming clearer. An ebony long-haired shecat, a grey maine coon tom, and a short-haired silver tabby with emerald eyes like diamonds cutting through the night. They’re nearly running on your tail now. You turned your head once more to the wind, focusing on escaping instead of the felines' features.

The sound of paws against terra firma abruptly silenced, and you sighed in relief, thinking they'd given up. Your relief was cut short, however, as the ebony feline leapt onto your back. You sank to your knees, terrified. The silver tabby and the maine coon ascended towards your pitiful figure, pinned down by the ebony shecat. The silver tabby nodded to the maine coon, her emerald eyes giving the command so her voice didn't have to, and he seemed to understand without a word. He slowly walked towards you and told you to drop the prey, which you were too scared to disobey. You were just happy to still be alive at this point. He and the silver tabby ambled back into the shadows towards the heart of the forest, where you remembered that the camp was.

“I saw you take that prey”, the ebony she-cat snarled. Her voice was one so powerfully demanding, but sleek like satin at the same time.

You winced, expecting the worst as she unsheathed her long claws. They cut deep into your pelt, drawing a disturbing amount of blood. You grimaced in agony.

“It was impressive.. I was the only one who noticed - well, until I notified Emerald and Ashfur.” she explained, her deep obsidian-sapphire eyes cutting through the darkness.

“You’re quite the thief.”

She paused for a second, and, seeming to reconsider her attack, she gracefully leaped off of your aching back and began circling around you, as if she was analyzing every aspect. Finally, she nodded her head.

“My name is Raven, one of two leaders of The Shrouded Claws. The other you met back there, Emerald. And who are you, might I ask?” Her voice was hard, but with a very slight hint of respect.

You answer, still wary of her claws, stained red.

“I’m Ravenstripe”, you lie. The black and gray feline's pupils constricted almost immediately.

“I see. A liar, are you? You'll fit right in”, she laughed sarcastically, still circling. You shifted uncomfortably where you stood, wondering how she was aware so quickly of the lie.

She suddenly ceased circling and took a single step forward. You flinched. “You know, we could always use more members... and with skills like yours, I'd certainly say that you'd make a nice addition to our cozy little family. So, what do you say? How would you like to join us?" she began to groom her right claws, calmly taking a seat on the leaf-covered forest floor. You tried to hide your shock in an attempt to make a good impression.

"Of course... thank you" you stammered, a bit confused. "We'll need to know your actual name, obviously...” she turned her attention once more to you, awaiting your reply. You couldn't help grinning now. I'm __________.” Raven nodded and lead you back into the shaded thicket.

“Welcome to The Shrouded Claws, ___________.”

───────●  COMMANDMENTS ●





I. Sovereign's Command


The sovereign's word is law, however confusing or unethical it may seem. Never disobey a sovereign.


II. Dress Code


Always follow the dress code below. Don't roleplay with the wrong animal, so don't come into camp as an elephant or raccoon.


III. Drama


Do not create unnecessary drama. This includes having a special condition, fighting other clan members, and double grouping


IV. Double Grouping


Double grouping is not tolerated in the Shrouded Claws. It is considered extremely disrespectful to the founders, who worked hard to make this group what it is.


V. Powerplaying


Powerplaying is strictly forbidden. If you are unaware of what powerplaying is, here are some examples: "Bites and ends", "Heals".


VI. Loyalty


Follow your word. Never lie to fellow members of the Claws, and follow your loyalty oath. This group is not a hotel that you can join and quit whenever you want.


VII. Leaving


Leaving doesn't have to be permanent. You have one chance to return after quitting, but if you were exiled, you will have to talk to a sovereign about returning, and if you do come back, do not expect to have the same rank as before.


VIII. OCs


You may only have one OC at a time. Having multiple OCs in this group will just lead to confusion and chaos. When your current OC dies, you may start a new one and join again. Some people decide to create second OCs on extra accounts. We can usually tell. Please do not do this.


IX. Editing the Page


Never edit the page without permission from the page editors. The page editors worked hard to make this page perfect, and we don't want anyone messing with it, it just makes much more work for them.


X. Rules for Novitiates


They must have at least three training sessions with their mentor before becoming a combatant, mercenary, thief, of mender. Novitiates cannot have a mate. They can't leave camp without their mentor's permission.


XI. Rules for Youth


They must stay in the camp at all times unless they're with their mother. Kits must be 6 moons before they can start their training as a novitiate.


XII. Activity


All members are expected to roleplay for at least an hour each day. If you can't roleplay on some days, please contact a sovereign and explain the circumstances. If you're rarely online, you may be exiled.


XIII. Challenging Ranks








Mercenaries, combatants, and thieves are allowed to challenge the higher form of their rank in order to gain that rank (mercenaries may challenge the assassin, combatants may challenge the commander, and thieves may challenge the marauder). A challenge is a trial of three events decided by the sovereigns. One of the events will always be a spar. The results of these three events will determine whether the challenger takes their superior's rank, or they sustain their original rank.
