Hi everyone! It’s been a pretty exciting month here on WCF. In-character, we wrapped up the harsh leaf-bare plot with the clans erupting into battle and declaring war on each other, the Deliverance getting together in one large meeting, and another battle between SunClan and EclipseClan to wrap up the month. For more information on these plots, check out the

Clan Identities

Posted by Ember on March 26, 2018 at 2:10 AM Comments comments (15)

Last week, River, Alien, and I sent out three surveys. The first survey, written by Alien, regarded the clans’ identities, with a focus on how members understand these identities and which clans members prefer. A clear trend arose in the responses: MoonClan and SunClan were both well-liked and generally well understood, while most members wer...

Spring Surveys

Posted by Ember on March 16, 2018 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Hello!  As spring rolls around, it’s time to do some cleaning and- as in past years- take a hard look at this roleplay and see what can be improved. To this end, there are three surveys that I’d like to bring your attention to.

The first survey, introduced by Alienfish into the chatbox yesterday, regards the clans’ in-game identities. It takes three to five minutes to complete and c...

Character Birth Dates

Posted by Ember on March 16, 2018 at 2:05 AM Comments comments (5)

Hello everyone! As you might have noticed, characters’ birth dates are starting to appear on the clan pages and a field for birth date has been added to the Character Updates Page new character form. I’ve decided to make this change for a few reasons:

  1. To make it easier for members to check on their characters’ ages by removing the need to sort through records or the Character Updates Page
  2. To reduce the amount of week...

Hi guys! I hope that you’ve all had a fantastic February. Here on Warrior Cats of the Forest, we’ve had a busy month.

List checks will continue as usual, but any infractions we find won’t be held against you until the glitch works it...

Hello everyone! I hope that all of you are getting into the swing of the new year. On Warrior Cats of the Forest, it’s been a super exciting month both in terms of plot and out of character activities. In-character, The Deliverance plot has only thickened and all of the clans have new rules on their members in response—though, in each of the clans many cats are also tempting fate by ignoring these rules. There are a handful of other plot t...

Ninth Anniversary

Posted by Ember on January 16, 2018 at 1:20 AM Comments comments (13)

Today, January 16th 2018, marks the ninth anniversary of this website’s creation and one of the times of the year when y’all are going to have to excuse me for being sappy. When this website was created, it was just a tiny, disorganized site for a small handful of offline friends. Nearly a decade later, this roleplay has expanded into the community of talented roleplayers that define WCF today and I have never stop being astonished by what t...

Glitches Guide

Posted by Ember on January 10, 2018 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (5)

Warrior Cats of the Forest is hosted on Webs (formerly Freewebs), a website host owned by Vistaprint. While this makes the website easy to update, it means that Ember has little control over the workings of the website itself and can rarely fix any glitches that occur.

If you find a glitch anywhere on the website, you should report the problem to Webs through

Environment Guide

Posted by Ember on January 8, 2018 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (6)

Rather than in the English countryside where the canon clans make their home, the territories of Warrior Cats of the Forests take place in an imagined location in the vicinity of Detroit, Michigan. This guide to Warrior Cats of the Forest’s environment covers the territories’ climate, geography, and a handful of the other species characterize the area. This guide is by no means inclusive of every detail of the clans’ territories, every...

WCF Naming Guide

Posted by Ember on December 31, 2017 at 1:00 AM Comments comments (7)

In the traditional Warriors naming system, each warrior’s name consists of two halves, a prefix and a suffix. The prefix is given to a cat by their parents and is retained throughout their lives (with the rare exception of a name change), while the suffix is changed several times as they climb the ranks. While kits, apprentices, and leaders all share the same suffix (-kit, -paw, and -star, respectively), warriors and medicine cats have a wide varie...
