Your paws scraping hopelessly on harsh rock, your own yowl as you fell to the ground below, harsh and hostile faces blurry above you. You fell. You fell. You fell. You'd heard that a Clan lived on the other side of the Thunderpath, and you'd tried to get to them, but you fell. Now, surely, you couldn't be safe.
Where are you now?
You're in a small den, and a she-cat is pressing cobwebs to your gaping wounds. A medicine cat? Beside her stood two dark, ominous figures. The leaders of this Clan, whoever they are, you guess
"There. They should be fine, Brokenstar" meows the medicine cat peacefully. There was gentleness in her clear voice, not like the healers you've known or heard of. This is no ordinary medicine cat. This is no ordinary Clan.
Who are these cats?
The leaders’ makes eye contact with you; one was a molted grey she-cat with dark grey stripes running down her pelt. The other she-cat was a white Bengal she-cat with black leopard spots splattered on her pelt; their harsh gaze was piercing, and so uncomfortable that you felt as if your soul is slowly burning away. There's something Strange about this place and you know it.
"We are ShadowClan, and you have trespassed on our territory," the white she-cat tells you firmly. You flatten your ears and lower your head avoiding eye contact with the cats.
"Please spare me," you mew quietly trying to keep yourself from trembling, so scared you're almost paralyzed. They turn to face the medicine she-cat.
Please, StarClan help me.
"What do you think?" Lightningstar meows to the tan and cream colored she-cat who had cured you and brought you back to health when you could have easily died. The she-cat freezes, and turns her sky blue-gaze toward the massive Leader. There was sympathy in her eyes. There may be mercy.
"This cat seems...different from the trespassers we normally see on our territory. We should spare them from punishments if they joins us." The she-cat finally meows. Both cats turn back towards you. The white and black she-cat’s sharp blue eyes transfixed on you and it made you want to shrink back and hide from her.
There is something wrong about this place. So why do you feel this irresistible pull towards ShadowClan? The grey cat flickered her ear and narrowed her silted pupils as if she was analyzing your thoughts.
"Will you join ShadowClan?"
"Few are welcome here, in our world of secrets and darkness. We are a Clan of cunning and cleverness, a Clan well suited to the shadows of the cold north wind. No other Clan can walk the paths of night like we do. Other Clans may be faster or stronger, but we are the most dangerous warriors: fierce, proud, and independent. We are ruthlessly willing to do what it takes to protect our great Clan. There won't be any softhearted alliances here! ShadowClan will always be the dark heart of the forest." ~Blackstar

Felis Catus (Feral Cat)
Wait for it
Forest Of Sins
A dark and damp forest where warriors can really hunt in the shadows. There is multiple species of prey nesting here and it is often used for hunting and battle. The glade in the middle is a good place to train. The trees make a canopy which we like because it means there is more darkness. It gets it name because sometimes it looks like it goes on forever.
A snowy area where prey is little but is very good in the winter time. It can be dangerous due to the ice. Here is also the Moon Pool where medics come to speak with StarClan. It also is where our winter camp is located due to safety and the risk of flood in the normal camp.
~Temple of Zios~
The Stoney River gets it name from the arch of twoleg stones created over part of the river. The area is marsh and is very good for hunting frogs and other reptiles. Everyone is warned of the dangers of the twoleg buildings and are advised not to go near them. The big ruins of stones in the middle are called, twoleg Rock and should be avoided
This is the most dangerous area where there are falling stones,adders, and spiders. Apprentices are not allowed to enter until they are within 3 moons of training. Ravens bridge is a place where very few dare to cross. new warriors often try to cross o symbolize a change from apprentice to warrior. It also where the star stones are for leaders to go to speak to StarClan.
Found on the edge of our territory it's a place where you can see all the territory. It's extraordinary at sunrise, and must see place for new apprentices, and all cats alike. Desert lizards are found here, but are hard to catch, as you must also be weary of falling, which would be fatal to any cat.
PHOTO BEING FOUND
A large twoleg village, filled with nests alike. Twolegs roam here almost all hours along with their kits and elders. It is a place no apprentice is to go, and should be avoided at all costs,

'12/9/16 ShadowClan has been attacked by three badgers in one day. None of our cats, luckily, lost their lives. ShadowClan is to make extra patrols for the next 2 weeks.' also welcome Crystalpelt and Foxkit !
12/4/16 Congratulations to all of Shadowclan on being home to over almost 60 cats! Look at how far we have come... and were still growing!
12/1/16 Our clan camp has been updated for Leafbare, thank you Willowtail! An unknown cat came into our camp and attacked Shadowclan members; Blackfang and Littleleaf have both been injured greatly.
11/30/16 Lightningstar lost her her first life from a dog attack on our territory, and Silverfur has green cough. Please make sure to always keep your eyes open for any intruders on our territory for now on.
11/28/16 We say farwell to our kit Blizzardkit who was struck by a monster on the Thunderpath. May you now hunt in StarClan young warrior.
StarClan- The deceased warriors who commited good deeds and served their clan well go to StarClan. Ancestors of the Clans who live on in spirit form after dying, and watch over the living Clan cats. There is no specific leader for StarClan, since there are many cats from all four Clans that work together. They are responsible for sending sings and omens to the living cats.
Dark Forest- is the opposite of StarClan's hunting grounds. It is a place where cats that have committed great crimes against their clans and against The Warrior Code go when they die. However, cats who commit crimes but believe they are following the Warrior Code by doing them can usually join the ranks of StarClan instead.
In every Clan there are rules we must follow. These are here to help us stay orgonized. Read them over carfuly, for if you break one, you will be punished. It may be severe, or it may be small. It depends on what rule you break.
●The Warrior Code●
The Warrior Code is a set of 16 rules placed here by our ancestors long long ago. These rules are to be taken serisouly. If you fail to follow these rules and break one, the leaders and deputies will decide your punishment. Need a refresher of The Code? Read
Multiple oc's per each account is getting overwhelming, so we've decided to cut it down to 2 oc's per person. If you have more than 2 oc's right now, please choose your most vital ones, or we will choose for you. You must also use those two oc's equally. There is no point in making an oc that you will never use.
If you fail to respect your Leaders, severe punishment will follow your actions accordingly. These felines have fought hard to gain their ranks, your life should respect them.
Double Grouping is forbidden in ShadowClan. If this is discovered from you, there will be no hesitation in exile. Acceptions are if you are in any of our side roleplays.
●Stress & Pestering●
Most certainly do not put stress on your Leaders. Your Leaders already have enough on their list, and don't need your stress on top of that. Do not pester them to do clan, as they have lives outside of Animal jam.
Power playing includes but is not limited to using any other language than english, fake anatomy, ignoring another enemies moves, and claiming to have powers ESPECIALLY without a backstory.This is not tolerated in any form here and you can be punished for it.
You must be active here in ShadowClan. If you don't want to be forgotten, you must be on often. The leader must be notified if you will be gone for multiple days, and for how long. At the rate we are currently growing, it can be hard to keep track of who's on vacation or who has gotten bored and decided to leave without notifying someone. So make sure you notify the leader of a vacation.
●Leaving Multiple Times●
If you leave Shadowclan once , you can come back again, but if you leave Shadowclan a second time, you will be exiled and will never be allowed to join Shadowclan again. Do not think you can pop in and out of this clan whenever you feel, or if you have a 'bad day' and say you are leaving, then come crawling back.
Drama can be a big part of Clanning, but it can also be the worst thing about it. Most clans do evolve around drama, but most drama is very subtle and doesn't affect the entire clan. Still here at ShadowClan, we don't like drama of mostly any kind. That is why we only allow 2 events of drama per week. This includes on the game and on the wiki. We need to remember that drama can and will stress people out and/or cause more issues than thought of.
Examples of “starting drama” are:
-Killing off your character
- Becoming a queen and having kits
- having your oc get injured or getting a disease
- Having your character going insane.
- having an animal such as a badger of wolf run into camp and attack everyone or just your oc
- making your oc depressed
- having a natural catastrophe happen such as a blizzard, flood, or thunderstorm
- having dreams of visions from StarClan or the Darkforest.
- Using your second aj account to make an enemy from your oc’s past suddenly come back into your character’s life.
- Anything else that you can think of that will change the course of our roleplay
If you want to start drama you must ask a higher ranking cat first, no exceptions.
-No spamming (wait at least 7 hours for someone to respond to your message before making a new one)
-Do NOT post comments about shipping, or anything related! If you want to post something about shipping, or any couple linearts, post it on our shipping page! ( ShadowClan (Rosepaw16)/Shipping )
- Only comment clan related things (we have a forum for things that do not have anything to do with Shadowclan Shadowclan's Random forum )
A verbal warning consequence isn't major and is frequently given for those who make minor mistakes. You will just speak face to face about where you've done wrong and clear up any nonesense.
Public humiliation comes after verbal warning. A public humiliation will be something wrong you have done that gets mentioned infront of your peers.
Bound to Camp
This often happens if you act wreckless and kit-like outside or within our camp. You will be forced to stay within the camp area. This punishment can run anywhere from a day to a full moon.
Torn Ear &/or Tail
We bay be on the neutral side of things, but if the case is severe enough, we will not hesitate in tearing your ear or tail clean off. It will often be done infront of your fellow clan members, and be comitted by the deputy.
Depending on your actions, you could be demoted from your current rank you have. This will last as long as our leaders choose. If demoted to an apprentice, you will be given a mentor to punish you for your actions and teach you what it truely means to be a warrior here in ShadowClan once again
We exile people for only a several reasons, and they are mainly for out of character actions. This includes Double-Grouping.
Death is the darkest punishment, and will happen within roleplay. It may often be a full-clan mauling. You will be torn at and picked apart by your fellow clan members. And after the deed is done, you may never returne to ShadowClan.
Medics are the healers of our clan. They know almost everything there is to know about herbs, and are in charge of keeping everyone strong and healthy, from the smallest scratch to green-cough. They are to be taken seriously and to be listened to. Third in command next to the Leaders and Deputies. They deserve the most respect the can have.

Hunting The apprentice is taken out by the leader and their mentor to the hunting area that has the best prey at the time. The apprentice is then allowed to go hunt on a command from the leader. The apprentice is then to hunt until the leader says that they have seen enough or the apprentice has caught more than they can carry. The second part is that the apprentice is needs to show hunting with a partner. After that the apprentice is allowed to return to camp to rest before finishing their last part of training.
Battling The apprentice is required to fight with the leader or another warrior. The apprentice is to try as best as they can to take down their opponent till a deputy calls the end. They will fight with no pauses. then the leader will analyze the test along with the mentor. If the apprentice passes they will be congratulated and allowed to go rest or celebrate. The ceremony will be made at sunset of that day. If they do not pass the things they need work on what can be improved.
Apprentices don't need to redo the entire test, just the part they failed at.

What does it take to be a full member of the clan?
You must show up for clan more than 5 times. this means that you attend clan meetings
Can I become a senior warrior?
Only if you have been in the clan for 4 months or more with a constant attendance of once a week
When do I become a mentor?
If you show that you are able to when your a warrior and show enough patience and hard work.'
Why was _______ Exiled??
No one was exiled for no reason, we always make sure the person exiled had an important right to be.
Can I recruit?
Technically you need to have who ever wants to join ask Lightningstar or Brokenstar. Also if someone does join. Don't just assume they are in the clan, they need approval by the leader. Lightningstar and Brokenstar really dislikes people thinking they can just join without asking. Basically the answer is no, you can bring your friends to ask (they need to do it themselves) and then they might be able to.
What if I'm going on vacation?
Notify Brokenstar, Lightningstar, Darkheart, or Tigerfur
Note: We have combined all items for both member and non members.
If you are wearing something thats not no this list, please remove it. Also, we accept nothing in the color pink.
Below are the images of the acceptable pelt and eye colors for ShadowClan. This is to make sure that we remain realistic in our warrior cat designe standards. So, there will be no bright pink and blue cats.
[Note that you can have white eyes if you are blind]
Please have your avatar fit your rank, or you will most likely be mistaken for something you are not.
Leader, Deputy, Medicine Cat, Warriors, Queens, Elders
Our knock list is basically a gathering of cats who have special features, such as Blindness, deafness, missing a limb, ect. We have created this as to having these features is very uncommon in the wild, and it would make no sense if 8 cats in one clan are blind.
Fully Blind Cats >>3/3<<
Half Blind Cats >>4/4<<
Deaf Cats >>0/3<<
Half Deaf Cats >>2/4<<
Cats Missing Limbs >>1/2<<
Please remember that this schedule will not always be followed perfectly and there may be days when Brokenstar and Lightingstar are both not online (They do have lives outside of AJ). Shadowclan's deputies, Darkheart and Tigerfur are also permitted to lead a roleplay session without the leaders if there are enough Shadowclan members online.
If you wish to be allies, leave a comment or buddy me and gram one of our leaders also, try and meet us as soon as you can. No point in making allies and then we never meet or
anything. Please if you are allies,keep that promise! It's useless
making an alliance and not actually doing something with it.
We only accept groups that are feral cats and use traditional styled roleplay
You must have 15 or more members to be accepted
