The sea is calling you, Insert name here . . .
Banner-1481253339

So why don't you come on in? The water's fine!

Step Into The Tides . . .

A gentle breeze ruffled your fur as you stood on a large, flat slab of rock that jutted out over the ocean, your eyes closed as you relished in the cool, crisp morning air touching your pelt ever so lightly. The faint tang of salt from the peacefully lapping water below touched your scent glands as you let out a quiet purr of delight, your paws shifting slightly on the smooth gray surface of the stone beneath your pads. The ocean had always been your favorite place, from the day that you had first seen it as a young kit with your mother, and even now, you still spent time on the same boulder, daydreaming and pondering what wonders what lay in the deep, cold depths of the constantly rippling waves.

"What a beautiful day . . . " you murmured quietly to yourself as you allowed your watchful gaze to follow the movement of two crabs on the shoreline. You resisted the urge to pounce down upon them and feast on them as your next meal, for they appeared to be young, and stealing the life of such innocent creatures seemed cruel to you. Instead, you turned your face back to the distant horizon and meowed happily, "This is the best place in the world. Nothing will change that - ever."

You sighed contentedly, then froze as a voice sounded from behind you. "I wholeheartedly agree," it said. You spun around quickly, unsheathing your claws instinctively, and found yourself staring at a slender, yet strong-framed, silver tabby she-cat with bright blue eyes. She was standing a few paces away, her fluffy tail swishing rhythmically behind her, and you felt a tinge of embarrassment as you realized that she had most likely been listening to everything that you had said.

You tipped your head to the side slightly. "Who are you -- and what are you doing here?" you asked as you leaped down gracefully from the rock to speak to her directly. The impact sent a small spray of golden sand up from your paws as you landed neatly on the ground, ignoring your feelings of discomfort at being so close to such a strange, unfamiliar cat.

The beautiful feline smiled kindly at you. "My name is Ripplestar," she responded in a friendly tone, "and I am the leader of TideClan . . . which, by the way, is the name of the group that owns the land that you are standing on right now." You jumped back, startled and half expecting her to chase you out of her territory, but after a moment, you realized that she was still calm, no bristling fur, no unsheathed claws, no signs of anger or aggression, so you allowed yourself to relax slightly.

"I'm sorry for trespassing without your permission," you murmured, forcing your pelt to lie flat, despite the mingling emotions that battled inside of you. Questions, too, whirled in your mind. What is TideClan? Where are the rest of the cats? What do they do? You swallowed them down, resenting the fact that your inquiries would probably never be heard, and never be answered. "Please don't hurt me. I mean you no harm," you added quickly before the other cat could speak.

"Hurt you?" Ripplestar replied, a long purr rumbling in her throat as she stared at you with amusement warming her already cheery blue gaze. "Why, no, I never intended to hurt you -- not even for a second! I understand your intentions, for many others, just like you, often visit this area to see the view of the sea, and I permit them to do so, as long as they do not steal prey. I assume you weren't planning to, even without me telling you," she meowed, nodding towards the two crabs that you had been watching earlier.

"Of course not," you said swiftly, glad that Ripplestar was so peaceful and patient. You hesitated, feeling an uncharacteristic surge of shyness inside of you, and then after a long pause, you asked quietly, "You know your group . . . TideClan . . . is it possible for me to . . . for me to join?" You lifted your head, hope blazing in your eyes as the silver tabby considered your offer thoughtfully.

Luckily you didn't have to wait long for her response, for a moment later, Ripplestar dipped her head in agreement. "Certainly," she meowed, and smiled. "Not many dare to ask such a bold question, young one, and I applaud your bravery. TideClan will welcome you."

Our History

Many felines know the beauty and the countless wonders of the ocean, but few are actually brave enough to dive down into the depths, to feel the waves washing over their pelts, to see the things that they've heard so much about, but never really gotten to set eyes upon. They come up with pointless reasons for not entering the depths of the sea; "It's too cold", "It might be dangerous", "Who knows what's lurking in there?", and so much more. But they are hiding from the truth. They are afraid.

But Ripplestar, the founder of TideClan, was not. Even as a young cat, she was bold and fearless when it came to swimming, and none of the apprentices could ever defeat her in a contest when it came to water. Her name back then was Ripplepaw, and it was one that many knew, for she was constantly being recognized for her extreme talents and bravery. She always had had a natural affinity for the sea and was constantly slipping away from her normal duties to see it.

When Ripplepaw received her warrior name, Rippleshine, she decided that life in her Clan was too confined -- they did not spend enough time on the beaches -- and announced that she was leaving the day after her vigil. Upon her departure, many were saddened by the loss that she was to their group, but even their most desperate pleas would not even shake her certainty in her choice. She travelled along the shoreline for many days until she found a suitable place to live, and she was not very surprised to see many other cats visiting the same area, for it was beautiful and had plentiful prey.

She soon created her own group, called TideClan, after her irresistible desire to be among the waves, and named herself leader, now called Ripplestar. She gathered around her cats with the same beliefs as her, beliefs that the ocean was strong and calm at the same time, breathtaking and unpredictable. They became a tightly-bound, yet dominant and powerful Clan, one that will never be forgotten, even long after their last ripples have faded away into non-existance.

Recent Announcements

{ 12 / 8 / 16 }

TideClan has been founded as an official backup group to join if RegalClan ever disbands!

We welcome a new member, Wavecrash, into TideClan as the Deputy! Congratulations for getting accepted!

Regulations Of The Tides

Loyalty

TideClan requires nothing except for absolute loyalty. If you do something to make the Leader doubt your loyalty, there's going to be quite a few consequences -- and it isn't going to end very well for you.

Warrior Code

Follow the Warrior Code at all times.

Drama

When you're in TideClan, causing drama is not tolerated at all. You will receive a punishment if you intentionally try to create drama, because it is something that is unnecessary.

Power Playing

Power Playing is strictly prohibited in TideClan. Do not act as if you can do anything just by saying "nm!" or "nn!" When doing any form of roleplay, you absolutely have to be realistic.

Double Grouping

If you are caught Double-Grouping and it can be proved, you will be exiled on the spot, no questions asked.

Stress

Please do not stress the high ranks. They are very busy, and have a lot of things on their mind. They can not always be on Animal Jam or the Wiki, so if you ask them a question, be ready to have to be patient in waiting for a response. Rudeness about this may result in a punishment, as real life must always come before a computer game.

Respect

Respect is also very important. Everyone deserves to be respected for what they have done for RegalClan, but it is important that the higher ranks are noticed as well. Kits will get less respect than the Leader, for example, and complaining about this will not change a thing.

Activity

TideClan is one of the Clans that do not require strict activity. Although you should roleplay as much as possible, there are no schedules set and unless there is a major event, you will not receive a consequence for missing a roleplaying session. Consult the Leader or Deputy if you are confused about this.

Amusement

Although we can be very serious at times, TideClan also enjoys many fun and amusing moments.

Leaving

Loyalty is very important, and is demanded from every member of TideClan. To leave is to be considered extremely dishonorable and you are often not accepted back after you have left once. This rule can be bent in certain occasions, and if the Leader decides to bend it for somebody, you are not to argue with their decision.

Seriousness

Outside of roleplay, you can be as goofy and silly as you want. However, during a roleplay session, it is required that you be serious at all times. If you have to say something like "Brb" or "Afk", say it in brackets, like this: "(Brb for a second)". Also, if you come into a roleplaying session late, try not to interrupt the others.

Editing

The only cats in the Clan that are allowed to edit the page are the Leader, the Deputy, and the founder ( xSnowfall ). If you edit the page without permission and it gets messed up in any way, you will face a serious punishment.

Assorted Rules About Ranking Up

- Unlike most other groups, TideClan does not just rank up their Apprentices when they reach the age of 12 Moons. Instead, the rule is that they must have had at least 4-6 training sessions with their mentor. Also, when their mentor gives them their approval, they also must pass a test for hunting and a test for fighting, given to them by the Leader or Deputy.

- TideClan does not require you to know advanced vocabulary to join us. However, if you apply for a higher rank, the usage of advanced vocabulary must be constant and correct, or you will be declined immediately. The highest rank that you can receive without knowledge of advanced vocabulary is average Warrior.

Coloring

Pelt

Be realistic please. No peach, pink, or green colors. Darker shades of blue are permitted but are strongly frowned upon, and in certain cases, you may be asked to change it.

Eyes

All colors are allowed for eyes except pink. White and pale gray is for blind wolves.

Punishments

The consequences range from the least severe to the most.

Confinement

The rule-breaker will be confined to the camp and will not be allowed to leave, no exceptions made. This consequence can last for as long as the Leader decides it will.

Public Humiliation

The Leader will call a meeting when enough members are on. The rule-breaker will be laughed at and made fun of in front of everybody. No one is allowed to sympathize with them, for they are being humiliated for a reason.

Trainee Duties

If the rule-breaker is a Warrior and above, then they will take on the task of cleaning out bedding from all of the dens, hunting prey for the Elders, and must be accompanied by a responsible cat whenever they leave the camp. If the rule-breaker is an Apprentice or below, they will be confined to their den and are not allowed to leave at all. This consequence can last for as long as the Leader decides it will.

Starved (Minor)

The rule-breaker will not be allowed to eat anything for 2-4 days, no matter how hungry they are. They will be sent out on their normal patrols and every single piece of prey they catch must go straight back to the fresh-kill pile. This is ensured by having a trusted cat watching over them at all times, so that they do not eat it themselves.

Physical Punishment

The rule-breaker will stand before the Clan and must remain silent, not letting out any noises of pain or discomfort, as the Leader rakes their claws across a decided body part. The severity can range from a sliced ear to a scar on the neck.

Demotion

If the rule-breaker is a Senior Warrior, Medicine Cat, or Medicine Cat Apprentice, they will return to the rank of average Warrior. They are not allowed to apply or challenge for higher ranks until the Leader gives them permission.

Starved (Major)

This consequence is similar to "Starved (Minor)", but it is more advanced. The rule-breaker will be forbidden from eating any prey for a moon or more, depending on what the Leader decides, and they will have extra duties. In addition to their normal tasks, they will have nearly double their hunting patrols and will have to clean out the bedding every other day. If they have to complete any job outside of the camp, they must be supervised by a Senior Warrior. Failure to abide by this will most likely get them beaten or banished.

Beaten

The rule-breaker will be bound to a large stone using thorny vines, so tightly wrapped that they will be unable to move. A sharp stick will be shoved into their mouth to keep them from yowling and, starting from the Leader and ending with the youngest Apprentice, each cat will come up to the rock and strike their belly as hard as they please. Afterwards, the rule-breaker will be forbidden to receive any treatment or special care, no matter how much pain they may be in.

Banished

The rule-breaker will stand before the Clan and hear the Leader say how long their consequence will last. Then, they will be banished into the deserts outside of our territory, along with two of the strongest wolves from the Clan. They will serve as "bodyguards" but instead of protecting them, their duty is to make sure that the rule-breaker stays within the desert, not leaving at any costs, and then when the consequence is over, they will escort them back to the camp.

Exile

The rule-breaker will be exiled from the Clan, and any cat who sees them on TideClan's territory has every right to kill them on the spot. For some members, this is the worse consequence.

Death

The rule-breaker will be pinned to the ground by two of the Clan's strongest members while the Leader, Deputy, and occasionally the Senior Warriors, are allowed to attack them mercilessly until they die. To many members, this is the most severe consequence, and one that all cats would want to avoid.

Territory

The Frozen Tundra

AKA Mt. Shiveer

The Frozen Tundra is easily the most dangerous places for an inexperienced cat to be. It consists of many jagged cliff-like structures made out of ice, many high, slippery heights that could cause the death of a feline if they fell off of it, a pool that is completely frozen over but could crack beneath a cat's weight, and a strange purple Twoleg structure, although it seems to be abandonded for the time being. Apprentices and any TideClan member under the age of twelve moons is forbidden from visiting this place, for one careless or clumsy accident could get them fatally wounded or even killed in such a cold, deadly climate. Hardly any cats visit this area, which limits the risk of casualties, and not many need to, for the amount of prey and herbs here are extremely low and the chance of returning with anything other than snow on your pelt is very rare.

Prey Found Here:

Snow Hares, Deer, Elks, Owls, A few types of other birds

Herb Levels:

Extremely low

Dangers:

Freezing, Falling from a cliff, Drowning in the pool, Getting frostbite

The Evergreen Forest

AKA Sarepia Forest

The Evergreen Forest is by far one of the most lush and worthwhile piece of territory that TideClan owns. It is full of towering oak and pine trees, abundant prey in the undergrowth, a near-constant stock of herbs, and overall a very safe and sheltered place to be. There are very few dangers here, but cats that come here, whether its for a border patrol or a hunting expedition should always keep their guards up. This is the most popular area that the Clan possesses, as many rewards come from each trip here.

Prey Found Here:

Rabbits, Mice, Deer, Elks, Owls, Birds, Voles, Squirrels

Herb Levels:

Extremely high

Dangers:

Badgers, Foxes, Falling from trees, Dogs, Twolegs, Enemy cats, Snakes

The Jagged Cliffs

AKA Coral Canyons

The Jagged Cliffs are in the most Northeastern area of TideClan territory. It is made up of huge reddish-brown stone cliffs, a small trickling stream, a thundering waterfall, and in a beautiful cavern, the Moonpool. There is not much prey or herb life to be found here, and cats have to be extremely cautious as they trek across the higher parts of this land, but there is near to no dangers in such a hot, barren place. The Leader, Deputy, and Medicine Cats often visit this place for the Moonpool, but otherwise, there is not really any reason to be out here alone. Apprentices are permitted to come here, but only under close supervision from their mentor, or another trusted Warrior.

Prey Found Here:

Eagles, Hawks, Hares, Mice, Minnows (Stream)

Herb Life:

Low

Dangers:

Falling from the cliffs, Getting attacked by big birds, Enemy cats, Cactuses, Snakes

The Muddy Wallows

AKA Appondale

The Muddy Wallows is in the far Southern area of TideClan territory. It is mainly composed of a stretch of smooth brown dirt, with a large puddle of sticky mud on one side, a dome-like Twoleg building on the other, and behind the two areas, on a stretch of dusty grass is a huge tree with twisting roots and branches. Cats often come here to disguise their scent using the mud, or to climb the tree and rest, but there is not much life or herbs here. The dangers are also very low, and Apprentices often come here, for they do not have to worry about being too badly injured.

Prey Found Here:

Warthogs, Snakes, Rabbits, Mice, Voles, Squirrels, Many different birds

Herb Life:

Low

Dangers:

Warthogs's Tusks, Snake bites, Falling from the tree, Twolegs

Twolegplace

AKA Jamaa Township

The Twolegplace is where the humans, also known as Twolegs and Upwalkers, live. It is composed of many large, unnaturally straight 'nests' made of hard multi-colored stones, fake, tough grass, a statue, and a pretty fountain with water bubbling over the smooth gray rock. Apprentices and any cat under the age of fourteen moons is forbidden from coming here, prohibiting even some of the younger warriors from visiting the area. It is extremely dangerous, for Twolegs are destructive and unpredictable creatures, and many felines have been seriously wounded or carried away by these brutes. Do not come here at all if possible.

Prey Found Here:

Rats, Mice, Minnows (Pool)

Herb Life:

Extremely low

Dangers:

Twolegs, Monsters

The Ancient Clearing

AKA The Lost Temple Of Zios

The Ancient Clearing is connected to Twolegplace by a wooden bridge that spans the width of a small creek. It is a pine forest surrounding the wreckage of a fallen Twoleg structure, with a few stone Twoleg buildings, and a cave with a large river streaming out of it. It has ample prey life and a decent herb stock, but it is special in a way. Any members of TideClan that happens to be hunting here is required that they be absolutely silent, for some long-gone ancestors lost their lives as the Twoleg structure fell one day. It is very sacred and must be respected at all times, and after catching anything in this area, you must give thanks to StarClan.

Prey Found Here:

Rabbits, Voles, Squirrels, A variety of birds, Snakes, Minnows (River), Trout (River), Carp (River)

Herb Life:

Decent

Dangers:

Snake bites, Falling from the cliff, Drowning, Twolegs

The Sandy Shore

AKA Crystal Sands

The Sandy Shore is most of the TideClan cats's favorite place to visit. It is a beautiful golden beach overlooking a sparkling blue ocean, dotted with a few Twoleg structures, swaying palm trees, and a large pool near the center of the land, where water flows away in small streams to enter the sea. There is constant animal life among the waves, easy catches for the experienced swimmers of TideClan. They must be careful, for Twolegs like to play in the water and bask in the warm sunlight, but most of them are young and clumsy. Nearby is a tunnel surrounded by smooth gray stone and palm leaves that leads to Sunningrocks.

Prey Found Here:

Many different fish, Crabs, Lobsters, Clams, Water Voles, Seagulls, Pelicans

Herb Life:

Low

Dangers:

Twolegs, Drowning, Sharp Coral, Sharp Rocks

The Dusty Ravine

AKA Kimbara Outback

The Dusty Ravine is the hottest area, and the most Southern-located one as well. It is mainly red-brown stone in the shape of cliffs, rocky overhangs, and caverns, as well as a nice view of the ocean from a strip of wood that Twolegs created, and a small, constant waterfall. The area is mostly devoid of Twolegs, but it is extremely heated and not many cats visit here, not when there is the ocean of The Sandy Shore to jump in.

Prey Found Here:

Snakes, Rabbits, Water Voles, Hawks, Eagles, Minnows (River)

Herb Life:

Extremely Low

Dangers:

Overheating, Twolegs, Snakes, Porcupines, Cactuses

TideClan Camp

AKA The Leader's Den

The TideClan camp is where the cats of the Clan live and stay when they are not hunting or patrolling. It is a lush green clearing with large gray stones on one side and a huge, clear pool of water on the other. It has tunnels made of smooth gray stone branching off to the different dens. It is very peaceful, and it has two areas that normal Clan camps do not; a sparring arena, and a cavern filled with crystals at the bottom where the Elders and occasionally the Queens like to rest.

Celebrations And Traditions

Feel free to leave suggestions for new Celebrations, as well as ideas on different names for the ones that we already have!

The Sacrament

DATE: It is held whenever necessary.

When two new felines become mates, that is when "The Sacrament" ceremony is held. Cats, often all good friends of the bride or groom or both, will prepare a festive scene in the main clearing, using flowers, four-leaf clovers, petals, and any other beautiful items they can find. Then, as night begins to fall, a special ceremony will be held, with the previously chosen felines doing their respective jobs, and the two lovers will be declared as official TideClan mates. They will touch noses to show their affection for one another, and then a feast is held on The Sandy Shore as the Clan watches the sun rise, truly marking a new beginning for the new mates.

Into The Eternal Rest

DATE: It is held whenever necessary.

When any cat in TideClan dies, that is when the "Into The Eternal Rest" ceremony is held. If possible, the body will be taken to the camp and cleansed by the deceased member's closest friends, to make it appear as if they were simply sleeping. The Medicine Cats or Medicine Cat Apprentices will apply herbs such as mint to mask the scent of death and then as it approaches afternoon time, the body will be taken to The Sandy Shore. On a raft previously constructed by the deceased feline's friends, they will place the body and wait until the highest rank available says a few sacred words. Then they will push the raft out onto the ocean as the sun sets, marking the true end of the cat's life as they float away.

Day Of Retrospect

DATE: May 30

The "Day Of Retrospect" ceremony is held one days after Memorial Day, each year. The Clan, except for the Kits, their mothers, and the Elders are gathered by the highest rank available, will spread out across the camp and collect small trinkets such as leaves, petals, or rocks without speaking. Any cat who talks will be confined to the camp. Then the Clan makes the journey to the Moonpool, where they take turns dropping their items into the water, starting with the Leader and ending with the youngest Apprentice. As they drop their item, they will say who they are remembering at this time and what they did for them. Then they will trek back to camp through the night and by the time they get there, the sun will have risen. None of the cats will be able to sleep that night, and they must work hard to keep the fresh-kill pile well-stocked that day.

Saturnalian

DATE: December 27

The "Saturnalian" ceremony is held two days after Christmas, each year. The highest rank available will say a few sacred words to the Clan and then will lead them to the huge pool that lies in the depths of the camp, which will have been frozen over by the cold weather. The Leader will go first and ask a cat in the Clan who means a lot to them, to dance with them. Refusing is extremely dishonorable, and the two felines will dance on the ice. They will repeat this process until every cat has danced at least once. Then they will hold a feast while the Kits play and the Elders spruce up the clearing with mistletoe leaves and holly berries.

Supernatural Night

DATE: October 29

The "Supernatural Night" ceremony is held two days before Halloween, each year. As the day begins to slip into nighttime, the highest rank available will announce that the ceremony is beginning. All of the cats will gather around and the second highest rank will pass out prey from the pile, one to each feline, and they will eat their meals in silence while the high rank says sacred words. Then they will gather in small groups along the pool's bank and tell scary stories to each other. When the sun rises, they will go to sleep in the exact spot where they had been sitting, however uncomfortable it might be.

Distinction

DATE: December 8

The "Distinction" ceremony is held on the day that TideClan was founded, each year. It's like our anniversary. As the sun rises, the highest rank available will gather around them every cat that is older than fourteen moons, who is healthy and fit, around them, and announce that the celebration is being held. Then they will make the journey to The Frozen Tundra, with the youngest Warriors in the middle, and the older, stronger ones on the outside. Once they reach there, they will spread out along the cliffs and sit in silence, thinking about how TideClan is special, and different from other Clans. Then the high rank will announce that the time of quiet is over, and now each cat has to say what they thought about. It is extremely humiliating to not have a good answer, so be sure that you have one ready.
