"Ah welcome, it is I Spottedears, medicine cat of Moonclan, what has happened to the clans you may ask? I have a long story to tell you my friends, and even our mightiest warriors still tremble at this, so prepare yourself.
Just thirteen moons ago, my clan, Thunderclan, flourished under the leadership of Stormstar, a mighty and kind leader. That was until Riverclan attacked and we were left weak. Our previous medicine cat, Swirlingpelt was injured in the battle, he had horrid nightmares from Starclan that they were under siege, and I was the first to know of them. I was just Spottedpaw then, the apprentice to the then dieing medicine cat. I knew something had been wrong with Stromstar and it turned out he had been having the same nightmares as our medicine cat. Something attacking Starclan was unheard of, and was almost a sin to speak of to our clan, but we had too and without Stormstar all would have been lost then, he managed to keep the clan in one piece. Though that did not mean it was not crumbling.
At moonhigh we left for the clans meeting at Fourtrees, this is where the four clans would meet under the treaty of the full moon and speak with one another. It seemed all leaders and medicine cats were having the same nightmares, vivid demons attacking their dead comrades in Starclan. We decided to travel to The Moonstone and share tongues with Starclan, indeed our worries were real, and we knew this might be the end of all clans. We were given one command by Starclan to keep us alive, and that was to unite all clans to one clan, Moonclan. All four of the clans were sickened by the thoughts of sharing with their enemies, but Starclan was the more powerful opinion so all territories moved to combine at Fourtrees. The elders got along fairly well, while the warriors fought almost everyday for what seemed like moons. The queens shared tips on how to keep the kits happy with this new change and the apprentices just saw the new cats as competition. Our new clan flourished for a while, but the troubles with out beloved Starclan continued to get worse.
When Swirlingpelt and Stormstar died, I had only graduated from apprenticeship and I felt not ready to be medicine cat to the entire clan, but my sister Addereyes, who had been injured in battle, helped me and leader the duties of the clan medicine cat.( The other three medicine went rouge, apparently the dreams they had shown our clan failing, and it seemed like it might.) From then on in we both were the clans connection to Starclan, and we watched our dead ancestors fight off a dark force of which we had no idea how to stop.

We soon began getting attacks from the dark creatures that attacked Starclan, evil cats spirits attack us, and we have fought until our numbers match the size of one of the former clans. We all have suffered and it has seem Starclan is lost...


My tale is all true, and now I must go, my clan needs me. I will always be true to my clan and follow the warrior code, but in a time of no Starclan, what is the point?


___________________

Need me to explain our clan lives to you? We thank you for being in our clan young one, and once you know this it will seem like instinct to you. Below you shall learn the warrior code, all warriors go by it and you should as well.
The Warrior Code
1. Defend your Clan, even with your life. You may have friendships with cats from other Clans, but your loyalty must remain to your Clan, as one day you may meet them in battle.

2. Do not hunt or trespass on another Clan's territory.

3. 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.

4. Prey is killed only to be eaten. Give thanks to StarClan for its life.

5. A kit must be at least six moons old to become an apprentice.

6. Newly appointed warriors will keep a silent vigil for one night after receiving their warrior name.

7. A cat cannot be made deputy without having mentored at least one apprentice.

8. The deputy will become Clan leader when the leader dies, retires or is exiled.

9. After the death or retirement of the deputy, the new deputy must be chosen before moonhigh.

10. A Gathering of all four Clans is held at the full moon during a truce that lasts for the night. There shall be no fighting among Clans at this time.

11. Boundaries must be checked and marked daily. Challenge all trespassing cats.

12. No warrior can neglect a kit in pain or danger, even if the kit is from a different Clan.

13. The word of the Clan leader is the warrior code.

14. 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.

15. A warrior rejects the soft life of a kittypet.

16.Medicine cats may not have a mate or kits.

17.Kits must stay in camp until they are apprenticed, and are not allowed to hunt.

18.The safety of the Clan is more important than the safety of one cat.

19.Clans must not unite together to drive out another Clan.

20.Clans must not force another Clan to share territory.

21.Enemy patrols must not attack cats if they are returning from a mission all four Clans agree on

(Now)
22.All punishments are decided by the cats previous clan leader.

23. Even if you knew the cat in life, if it is a evil spirit now, you must fight it as if it were an enemy warrior.

24. No defending an evil spirit from your fellow clan members if it was once your friend or an ally.


"As you can probably see, some of our code is impossible to follow now, but we still stick to it when we can. Starclan shall not punish you if you break it under their rule like we must now. We have a long way to go young ones, and you still have much to learn, here is how you get your name.

____________________________

Names
My name is Spottedears, but I do not have spots on my ears, it is a personality trait since I hear very well. Don't ask how it was so, the clan leader chose my full name, my mother only chose 'Spotted'. Now I shall tell you how we receive names and how they change through your life.

1.When you are born, your name would be [descriptive word]Kit.

2.When you are an apprentice, your name would be that same descriptive word but now it would have paw at the end.

3.When you graduate from apprenticeship, your name would be a second descriptive word along with the first.

4. If you become a clan leader, Starclan grants you nine lives and the title [Same descriptive word]star.

5. When you become an elder your name might change to fit you then, so watch out for what people remember you by!

Territory and Important Places

User Image


Highstones- this is the place where The Moonstone is, and the last place to speak with Starclan, a very high honor if you get the chance. The Moonstone is in a pitch black cave, only having light when you reach the moonstone in the back of it.

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.


Twoleg Place- This is the place the twolegs live, and it is a place clan cats avoid, knowing they will see soft kittypets(human tame cats) there.

Clan Camps- The clan camps are still there but now abandoned as a large new clancamp sits at fourtrees, where all territories are open for hunting, but cats tend to stick to the territory of which they are best hunters.

Thunder Territory- Here you can hunt Mice, birds, and squirrels. You need to watch out for foxes, adders(snakes), badgers, and large dogs from the twoleg place.

Wind Territory- Here the most common prey are rabbits, so you do not want to hunt here unless you have very strong legs, they usually do quite well during the hard moons of leafbare, though they are always skinny.

Shadow Territory- Here you can hunt fish out of the thin stream, hunt mice, voles, and so on, but it seems to be a stronghold of the evil spirits, so it is usually avoided.

River Territory- To hunt here you must be able to swim, and you hunt fish. Riverclanners are experts at it, though in leafbare the river freezes and Riverlcanners usually have to struggle for survival, but now in Moonclan there is no such problem, though leafbare is still hard on everyone.

Thuderpath- A large strangely flat place where twolegs sit inside monsters and pass across, it is a dangerous place to be but the only way to highstones.
