Plot Planning

Posted by Ember on May 28, 2017 at 8:55 PM

Hi guys!  If you haven’t yet, please check out the last Plot Planning Page and the History Page, which was updated on the 25th.

As Ripple pointed out on the EarthClan Camp thread, there seem to be a whole bunch of disconnected side plots going on right now. Ideally, we can talk here about how to wind some of those side plots together to aid the overall plot.

As well, we need to decide what to do about the meeting between MoonClan and SunClan scheduled to take place in 14 in-game days. This doesn’t necessarily need to be 14 out-of-game days.

In regards to the MC/SC meeting, I personally think that they should end up attacking EarthClan, but lose. While the combined MC/SC alliance has more cats than EarthClan, the border trouble with EarthClan could weaken MC and SC. As well, we could potentially use some of the side-plots to strengthen EarthClan and weaken MC and SC.

I'm offering FlintFlick to be killed by EarthClan while he tries to pacify them.
As for my new buddy, StoneStory, expect a lot of shenanigans.

I can have Silverpool and Fallingsnow both killed, but I think I should hold off on that until after the battle so EarthClan isn?t further weakened.

Most sideplots I've seen go towards weakening Earthclan not the other way round. MC and SC losing is fine, it would make sense since Kaiserstar would not expect them to move their camp there.

Hm, having MoonClan and SunClan not realize the camp is there could be an interesting way to take the plot. Maybe they could get their giant battle party together and go to DawnClan?s camp, then find it empty and have accidentally alerted their enemies that they?re going to attack.
I?m not sure that?s realistic, though, since they?ll be aided by the rebels who will know about the Burnt Woods camp.

They also do not plan on going to Dawnclan camp so a mishap is unlikely. If the rebels contact them and join them then yes they would know. Nonetheless they could still carry out the plan regardless.

Where is SC/MC planning on attacking, then? Unless I misunderstood your answer?

They plan to retake the burnt woods, it was in the last plot planning page. You do say go read the last plot planning page in the second sentence.

Yes, but that?s what they plan on accomplishing, not where they plan on attacking. You said that Kaiser won?t expect EarthClan to move their camp there, so are you proposing that they just stumble upon the camp while remarking boundaries, or?? Usually camps are attacked, so if they don?t know where the camp is, they?ll have some trouble fighting a battle.

They plan to accomplish cutting Earthclan land in two. As I said earlier if the rebels tell him of the camp relocation then he'd still try to seize it. It isn't an attack rather a reclaim of stolen land, if Earthclan refuses then a battle will erupt. I doubt the burnt woods is big enough to conceal an entire camp so looking for it wouldn't be an issue.

Okay, we?re on the same page then. Cool!

Pantherfang and Viperstrike, NightClan rebels, have already come to SunClan seeking aid in splitting EarthClan back to their former clans. Desolatedunes agreed to help them only if they can round up the rest of the NightClan rebels and DawnClan rebels. She's sending Anput and Rabbitleap (possibly one or two more if anyone with a SunCln character is interested please message me) so they can help them find rebels and report back accurate information.

Ok, well the Nightclan rebels who aren't with Panterfang should be on the Earthclan/Loners border by now i think, so that's where they should be able to find some.

Yeah, they will find them without a problem since Pantherfang and Viperstrike are going to lead the way. It will take them a little to find the DawnClan rebels unless they meet one who agrees to show them, Silverstorm :) Briairwing has been added to the Rebel Scouting patrol so that makes Anput, Rabbitleap and Briairwing. They can take one more if anyone is interested :) just so they don't seem like a raid or anything.

Ember and I have discussed introducing the arranged mateships in EarthClan. Is there still support for the idea with everyone? (It was also brought up in the last Plot Planning forum.)

That sounds like it would be really interesting Ripple. and would add a lot to the plot. It would add an interesting twist that I have yet to see, and it could be seen by many different perspectives. EDIT: Also, L and I have a border skirmish started between EC and MC, to rise tensions between the clans.

I?m still up for it, since I don?t see how it would seriously take away from the plot. Even though EarthClan is all together, it seems like there are still some NC/DC division and having kits that are firmly EarthClan could help bind the clan together in the long-term. As well, promoting an influx of kits could be a natural reaction to how many cats have left EarthClan.

I?m up for having Grackleflight and Rustfeather paired up (though Grackleflight will be reluctant), as well as Silverpool (though she?s rather old), and Tidepaw (when he becomes a warrior, of course). If someone wants to pair their character up with Fallingsnow, that?s fine, but I?m probably going to be killing him off soon. Grackleflight and Rustfeather are both originally from NightClan, Silverpool, Tidepaw, and Fallingsnow are all originally DawnClanners.

Most of my cats in Earthclan are too young, but I do have Speckledstream

I'm up for the arranged matehood. Blazingpaw is going to be a warrior at the end of the month, so if anyone wants to pair her up with their cat, then that can be discussed.

I dunno how soon this is supposed to happen but Envypaw is still an apprentice so 🤷🏽
