Long ago, there was one Clan that ruled the forest. This Clan had no name besides "The Clan;" after all, with no other Clans, why would it need a name to differentiate it? But as always, over time there became disharmony. It has been countless moons, seasons, and generations since this occurred, and so no cat living or dead now remembers the cause of the split, but still it came. The cats warred among themselves. When they divided, the territory was not large enough for two Clans to survive in separate territories, though they tried for many moons. Cats starved and died. And finally, the leaders of both of the new Clans came together on the newleaf equinox- the time when night and day are the same length- and came to an agreement.

The two Clans would share their territory, but they would only use it at certain times. The one that would become SunClan would hunt during the day, while the Clan that is now MoonClan would hunt only at night. Dusk and dawn were rather ambiguous times, and so it was decided that both Clans may walk the territory in the half-light but neither may hunt. However, if a SunClan cat should be out of camp or the small area around it, it would be considered trespassing; the same for MoonClan, but during the day. Both Clans claimed small patches of land around their camps that was exclusively their territory, but the rest of the land was for both. And thus the rather unique balance of modern SunClan and MoonClan was created.

Follow the forum rules and ghost rules, which I shouldn't have to reiterate here. Primarily, though, no flaming, spotlighting, or powerplaying.

Don't roleplay other people's characters, or otherwise control their actions in any way, without their permission first. Also, do not effect them in any major way (such as injuring, killing, or otherwise attacking them) without allowing them to respond first. Any instance where a character is injured or killed in such a way will not be considered "canon" unless the roleplayer of the injured/killed character deems it so.

No mary-sues/gary-stus, and no "-ests." Your cat can be very good at something, but it's difficult to say that they're the absolute best at anything. And they have to have some flaws. Otherwise, how would they get any character development?

Obviously, keep things pg. That means no very graphic descriptions of violence, no foul language, and nothing else that would be considered inappropriate for children. Queer characters are definitely allowed (thought I should specify since some people would consider that 'inappropriate').

Try to be descriptive and original. Make replies long enough for others to reply to without making them so long that they get boring (unless, of course, the only way to relay an event is through a very long post. Then, go for it). Don't be redundant; try to change posts up, and give more than just "He walked to the fresh-kill pile and got a mouse" or "She padded out of the warriors' den and sat down in the sun." Describe how they did it, what they felt like or what they were thinking, what their plans for the day were, or anything else to spice it up and add some scope to the character.

Keep characters realistic please. This goes for behavior as well as appearance. In reference to appearance, obviously cats aren't always going to be 100% realistic in how they look, but try to keep it believable if nothing else. So nothing crazy, like purple eyes or perfect star markings on their cheek. As far as behavior goes, just try to make them three-dimensional. Give them emotions and motives for doing the things they do, and make sure you keep their personality consistent. Give them realistic strengths and weaknesses that allow them to contribute to the Clan and grow as a character without being too perfect or so flawed that it's annoying.

I reserve the right to reject any players that I don't consider literate enough or to remove players who don't obey these rules or contribute to the roleplay in an interesting and constructive way.

If you are gone for more than two weeks without prior warning, I will remove you and your characters will go to the inactive section. I will not go chasing you down; liking your posts should be reminder enough.

If you claim a high-ranking position such as leader, deputy, or medicine cat, you must be especially active (check & update at least 6 days of the week, but preferably more). Everyone else should still be active, but as long as you don't trap other peoples' characters and are on relatively frequently, I'm not too concerned about activity.

All major roles (leader, deputy, medicine cats) must designate at least one other person who is online more frequently/at different times than themselves who they give permission to roleplay said leader/deputy/medicine cat if (and only if) they are needed in an emergency. This includes things like critical wounds that the medicine cats need to heal now, or attacks to camp that the leader or deputy must respond to, or anything else that needs prompt attention. These people will be listed as "alts." under the major character's claim.

As for everything else, it's just the usual: please don't leave and never come back; if you break the rules you may be deleted depending on the severity of your offense; please use () [] or something of the sort to separate in-character from out-of-character; no spamming unless you are requesting someone to go somewhere, etc. etc.

Defend your Clan, even with your life. You may have friendships with cats from outside the Clan, 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.

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 outside the 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 couple things about the form:
1) Please delete categories that don't apply. So if your cat has no mate, please just delete the mate category.
2) Please state the age in moons, not years or months.
3) Skills & weaknesses mostly refer to physical traits, not personality strengths/flaws (those should be described in personality, after all). Please have a balance of strengths and weaknesses. Obviously some cats will be overall better at being a warrior and some overall worse, but all cats should have at least one natural strength and one natural weakness.
4) The "virtues" category is only for cats who have been made warriors (or full medicine cats). These would be the traits identified by the leader at their warrior ceremony, with "StarClan honors your _ and _." This serves to sort of summarize the cat's personality at a glance.

MoonClan & SunClan

MoonClan & SunClan's territory rests in a fertile mountain valley. The summers are warm but mild, while the winters are harsh.SunClan's camp is located in the northern part of the territory, at the base of a tall hill. SunClan's territory includes part of the forest around the camp and the hill above, called Overlook Hill, which is a good place to survey the territory and watch over the camp. The camp itself rests part of the way up the hill, in a small clearing.

☀ The leader's den sits closest to the top of the hill. It is a small burrow dug beneath an outcropping of rock, the entrance of which is hidden by brambles. The leader gives announcements from the top of the rock, which is called the Callingstone. ☀

☀ The medicine den is located at the bottom of the hill, set slightly apart from the other dens to stop the spread of sickness when it occurs. It sits in a large patch of brambles, so that medicine cats and patients have plenty of room. ☀

☀ The warriors' den is a cave in a small cliffside near the base of the hill. A large yew tree grows above it, its roots obscuring the entrance to the den. The den itself is filled with alcoves and ledges where the warriors make their nests. ☀

☀ The apprentices' den is at the base of the yew tree's roots on the ledge above the warriors' den, in a holly bush that grows against the trunk of the tree. The tilted treetrunk is a good place for apprentices to practice climbing. ☀

☀ The nursery is in a burrow dug beneath the roots of a gnarled fir tree. Many roots grow from the roof to the floor of the den, and queens make their nests in the alcoves they provide. ☀

☀ The elders' den is a natural cave under a small pile of boulders. The cracks have been packed with soil to help insulate the den, and the rocks are warmed by the sun and help keep the interior warm as well. ☀


Lightstar | Caring & Brave ☀
Invader Vyx | 76 moons
Old pale gray she-cat with green eyes and faint tabby stripes on her legs. Lightstar is commanding and a bit strict, though not unfair. She does not tolerate stupid mistakes, though she is usually forgiving with apprentices. She holds herself and her Clan to a high standard and is very proud to be a SunClan cat. She had kits once with a MoonClan cat when she was a young warrior, but her kits all died and her mate abandoned her. Since then, she has never even thought of taking another mate or having kits again, focusing all her energy on making her Clan strong and keeping her Clanmates from making the same mistakes she did. She is on her last life and constantly worries about what will happen to her Clan when she is gone. | N/A



Hawkbelly | Strong & Kind ☀
Invader Vyx | 41 moons
Large, muscular light brown tabby tom with a paler belly, paws, and tail-tip and large yellow eyes. Hawkbelly may appear rather intimidating and stoic on the surface, but he is actually just a bit awkward and finds it difficult to communicate casually with others. He is actually very playful- especially with kits and young apprentices- and would love to have kits of his own someday, though no she-cat has ever caught his fancy. He is a bit afraid of becoming leader when Lightstar inevitably dies, and isn’t sure if, when the time comes, he’ll actually be able to bring himself to take the role. | N/A


ɛđίςίɳɛ ℭαϯ

Fallingpebble | Intelligent & Thoughtful ☀
Invader Vyx | 17 moons
Little misty gray tom with wispy fur, a white tail-tip, and round yellow eyes. Fallingpebble is a rather soft-spoken tom, preferring to think before he speaks. He is generally meek, but can be stern when it comes to healing, especially if he has an ornery patient. Still, he is young and only recently earned his full name; the previous medicine cat, Toadpool, was dying and wanted to leave SunClan with a medicine cat, and so gave Fallingpebble his full title. Still, the young medicine is not quite sure he fully earned it, and though he tries to hide if from his Clanmates, he tends to be rather uncertain of himself. | N/A



Nightstorm | Determined & Brave ☀
Invader Vyx | 47 moons
Large, well-muscled and thick-furred black tom with a white patch on his chest and amber eyes. Nightstorm's dark ears are torn from many battles, and a long scar stretches across his lower back from one flank to the other. Blackshadow is somewhat reserved and aloof, but can be kind, and is a good- albeit strict- teacher. He is quietly ambitious, and ever loyal to the Clan, but can be rather ruthless at times. | Mate is [Dawnheart], kits are Badgerpaw, [Blackkit], and [Russetkit].
Apprentice: N/A

Redfeather | Kind & Swift ☀
Invader Vyx | 28 moons
Thin, long-haired dark ginger tom with large pale green eyes and a white chest, belly, muzzle, and paws. Redfeather is soft-spoken and humble, and prefers to downplay his impressive hunting skills so as not to draw attention to himself. He is a good, patient teacher, and is fairly wise for his age. Though he deals well with younger cats, he has a habit of giving in too easily to other adults, as meek as he is, and often does not stand by his decisions when met with adversary. | Sister is [Dawnheart].

Apprentice: N/A

Apprentice: -



Invader Vyx | 7 moons
Small but muscular russet tom with dark amber eyes and a black stripe along his spine. Badgerpaw is quite sensitive about his size, always determined to prove himself in battle by picking fights with the other apprentices and- at times- even the warriors. He is headstrong and eager to rush into battle. He tends to be a bit of a spoiled brat, since he was the only kit in the nursery for many moons after his mother and littermates died and was often coddled by the queens due to his weakness as a young kit. | Parents are Nightstorm and [Dawnheart]. Littermates are [Blackkit] and [Russetkit].

Mentor: -


Ɋυɛɛɳȿ & Ƙίϯȿ

Sageshine | Brave & Caring ☀
Invader Vyx | 35
Small, pretty silver-and-white she-cat with vivid blue eyes. Sageshine is friendly and kind, but can be a bit judgmental and selfish at times, though she makes up for this with a willingness to accept and try to fix her wrongdoings. She also has a habit of being somewhat absent-minded and ditzy, so she isn't that great of a hunter, though she's a deadly fighter when she's focused- especially when someone or something she cares about is in danger. | Mate is [Owlwing]. Expecting kits.
