Ninth Anniversary

Posted by Ember on January 16, 2018 at 1:20 AM Comments comments (12)

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...

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...

EarthClan & EclipseClan Page Updates

Posted by Ember on November 17, 2017 at 6:50 PM Comments comments (4)

Hello everyone! As you might have noticed, I've begun the process of converting the pages and guides to include EarthClan and EclipseClan, rather than NightClan and DawnClan. Most of these changes will involve simple name changes and won’t take long, but others will be more of a process and may take some time. Please be patient while I work on these, the website may be somewhat disorganized until these updates are completed.

November Gathering & Cougar Attack

Posted by Ember on November 6, 2017 at 11:05 PM Comments comments (13)

Hi y’all! The next gathering is scheduled to take place this coming weekend, November 10-12th. In order to avoid having two back-to-back weeks with major character gatherings and events, I would like to combine this gathering with the final cougar hunt. As such, the gathering will commence and the clans, in full force, will hunt down the cougar and successfully kill it or chase it off the territories. This strategy of meeting for this purpose at t...

Rule Infractions & Penalties

Posted by Ember on October 9, 2017 at 9:10 PM Comments comments (4)

The goal of the many rules of this website can be sorted into two broad categories: atmosphere and website organization. Atmosphere includes issues like ensuring the community stays positive, cohesive and appropriate for all ages, and maintaining the general “feel” of our Warriors universe in terms of realism and continuity. Website organization includes issues like ensuring that there are clear divisions between in-character and out of char...

Plot Planning

Posted by Ember on September 29, 2017 at 10:40 PM Comments comments (84)

Hi guys!

Recently there’s been some talk of deviating from our original plan to move EarthClan into DawnClan’s former territory and EclipseClan’s formation as outlined on the Planned Events Section of the History Page, toward a more peaceful route.

Either way, I think the most important thing is that whichever way we want to go, we should start actual...

Plot Planning

Posted by Ember on August 27, 2017 at 12:35 PM Comments comments (55)

A week and some change ago we voted to keep EarthClan and add a new clan to the website. While this new clan won’t be able to actually come together until we have EarthClan moved into DawnClan’s territory, we should start planning for the new clan now so we know what they want to be when they are formed. This blog entry is designated to specific in-game events, so if you want to share your ideas on what this new clan should be in terms of pers...

New Clans Planning

Update: a formal poll regarding the new clan's name can be found here. Once you complete the poll, there will be an option to "see previous responses" that will let you see where everyone else is standing. If it's close or we get a bunch of "other" responses, we could potentially re-poll.

Enemy Animals Guide

Posted by Ember on July 29, 2017 at 2:35 AM Comments comments (7)

There’s a reason why the first line of the code requires that cats defend their clans, even if their lives: the life of a warrior is dangerous. While starvation and fights with the other clans are constant threats, clan cats also come across a variety of dangerous animals in their day to day lives. While sometimes these enemies can be allowed to go about their lives, others must be confronted and killed or chased away, and others even hunted for f...
