Warrior Cats

Welcome Young Warrior...

Due to a glitch in our host's servers, the Recent Forums Posts, Recent News, and Recent Art sections of the Side Bar are not updating properly.  To see up-to-date posts, see the Forums Page, News Page, and the Recent Art Page.


New members are not being accepted at this time.  Registrations were last open 12/5/17 and are expected to reopen in late December.  In the meantime, the site owner can be reached at [email protected]


You stand before a bone-white tree.  As a breeze flutters by you, it directs your gaze over the small overhang, where you see four distinct territories. You have heard of them before: MoonClan, SunClan, EarthClan, and EclipseClan.  A voice speaks to you: “You look excited little one.  Have you just realized you left the safety of your home?  You look worried.  I won't hurt you, but others may.  Are you prepared to fight tooth and claw for what you believe in?  You must make your choice. Which direction will you take?


“MoonClan is the oldest and most noble clan, founded by myself, Moonstar. Living deep within in the forest, they get their food from the birds and rodents living there. They are the bravest clan and have the closest relationship with StarClan, but due to their age and history, MoonClanners are often arrogant and prone to looking down on the younger clans. While they have the greatest respect for StarClan’s traditions, even they have been known to ignore parts of our code that are inconvenient.


“SunClan resides on the windy moors to the southwestern corner of the clans' territories. Hares are the only abundant prey in their territory, causing them to be the strongest hunters and best at working in a team in order to survive. SunClan is more cautious than the other clans, and the cats can be quite skittish. They are the most rational and introverted: a think-before-you-leap clan. A much higher value is placed on the clan, rather than the individual. They were formed by a band of loners wishing for the stability of clan life, but with little knowledge of the traditions of the clans and so have many of their own traditions and values separate from the code.


“EarthClanners are tolerant, compassionate, and grounded. They prefer to encourage each cat’s individual strengths rather than implementing the conformity of the other clans. To them, the Warrior Code is treated as a general outline on how to live a good life, but is rarely implemented to the letter. EarthClan lives in the prey-rich territory south of MoonClan, where the thick forest and abundant rivers provide them with more comfortable lives than cats of the other clans enjoy.


“EclipseClan calls the in the two-leg city home and, shaped by this harsh environment, they are renowned for their resourcefulness and ferocity. Here, only the strongest and most devoted cats are allowed to remain in their ranks, as every cat has to claw their way to survival and the safety in numbers that the clan provides is fragile. EclipseClanners highly value battle prowess and as the city provides abundant scavenging, apprentices are taught almost exclusively in fighting and few EclipseClanners know how to hunt.”


The voice stops, and you turn around to see the starry figure of a cat.


“Well?” He meows, “Are you ready?”
