~~~ ☾ ShadowClan ☾ ~~~
The Dark Heart of the Forest!
|☾ ☼ ϟ ≈ ☁|
Greetings. I am Cedarstar. You must be brave indeed, to approach the territory of ShadowClan. Few are welcome here in our world of secrets and darkness. We are a Clan of cunning and cleverness, a Clan well suited to the shadows and the cold north wind. No other Clan can walk the paths of night like we do. Other Clans may be faster or stronger, but we are the most dangerous warriors: fierce, proud, and independent. We are ruthlessly willing to do what it takes to protect our great Clan. There won't be any softhearted alliances here! ShadowClan will always be the dark heart of the forest!
The Next Gathering is...The 17th of each month

Talltalon and Ravenpaw have been taken by twolegs! While on a patrol with Sootwhisker and Houndthroat, the two got caught in a twoleg cage trap! Ravenpaw was lulled to the scents of food inside in and in an attempt to pull her back, Talltalon triggered the trap and both got caught inside! Sootwhisker tried to get them out, but twolegs appeared and took the mentor and apprentice away! Not knowing where Houndthroat went, Sootwhisker ran back to camp to warn the Clan. Cedarstar then had Sootwhisker lead him, Lynxdapple, and Scorchfire to the place where Talltalon and Ravenpaw were taken. On the way there, they ran into Houndthroat. The young warrior had tracked a frog away from the hunting patrol and hadn't realized what had happened.
Fishy has left the forums. Sunpaw's new mentor shall be Copperheart! dustbinni, Leafbeart1, and Littlecreek have been deleted due to inactivity!
It is a sad day in the Clan. Hazelpaw returned from a hunting patrol, dragging Oceanstorm's body. While out hunting, a tree limb snapped under the weight of the snow and landed on Oceanstorm. Hazelpaw bravely tried to dig her out, but it was too late. The Clan mourns.
Shadedpine and Eaglesight are now mates!!!
To celebrate the patrol's victory and the feast that ShadowClan will be sharing tonight, Cedarstar made Tumblepaw a warrior for his impressive catch! His warrior name is Tumblefoot!
Cedarstar and his patrol returned! They were wounded, but Cedarstar announced that they were victorious! When arriving to ThunderClan, the camp was being attacked by rogues! Without ShadowClan and WindClan, the ThunderClan cats would've lost their camp! The rogues were driven out and Lightningstar was returned to leadership when Shadeclaw admitted that he wasn't chosen by StarClan. Cedarstar and the patrol left ThunderClan afterwards, knowing that Lightningstar was in their debt.
Goldberry and Tumblepaw brought this huge vulture back to camp! Thanks to it and the prey from Gregory and Shimmer, the Clan won't go hungry tonight!
Cedarstar took Lionscorch, Shortcloud, Oakstalk, Shadedpine, and Stormfury with him to Fourtrees to assist Lightningstar in his take back of ThunderClan!
I'm changing up how I make apprentices into warriors! If you want your cat to be a warrior, they gotta earn it! I posted a notice about it on Page 615 please read it over! If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!
Cedarstar and his patrol returned from WindClan! He announced that originally he, Swiftstar, and Lightningstar planned, in three days time at Sunhigh, Cedarstar will lead a patrol of five volunteers to Fourtrees to meet up with Lightningstar and a WindClan patrol. With Shadestar's current mindset, none of the leaders anticipate a fight. Shadestar won't be expecting ShadowClan to support Lightningstar, so its believed that the patrol just needs to show up and look intimidating! It is preferred that the cats who volunteer are large and intimidating. However, after the three leaders came to this conclusion. Nettlefrost of WindClan reported to them that they met Ghostscreech of ThunderClan on the border. If Ghostscreech can be trusted, Shadeclaw will attack WindClan in two days time! Cedarstar will announce who is on the patrol soon.
The day after the Gathering, Cedarstar called the Clan together. He announced that after speaking with senior warriors last night and having time to think on it himself, he has decided to offer assistance to Lightningstar in chasing the Dark Forest out of ThunderClan. If Lightningstar accepts their help, Cedarstar will lead five volunteers into what battles or assistance Lightningstar requires. Cedarstar stated that he will be taking Sootwhisker and Lynxdapple with him to WindClan to discuss things with Swiftstar and Lightningstar. In the meantime, border and hunting patrols should be going out. Cloudscar will organize them.
After the gathering patrol returned, members of the clan sat together and talked about what happened and what could happen in the future. Cedarstar called the senior warriors together to discuss the news of the Dark Forest in ThunderClan and if they should get involved.

In a shadowy marsh on the other side of the Thunderpath live us, the ShadowClan warriors. We are the dark warriors of the forest, who always seem to be plotting something sinister - according to the other clans. Our territory is marshy, with stunted trees and bushes, and a cold wind always blowing. The camp is near the Carrionplace, the Twolegs' garbage dump, and we always have to beware of catching the rats' diseases. Our territory is covered in pine needles and we don't have the luxury of thick trees. Our camp is protected by brambles and the entrance is a tiny path. There is hardly any grass on our territory leaving the ground muddy and cool, sometimes it freezes in leaf-bare and can be quite cold. The leader's den is beneath the root of a big oak tree. The warriors' den is under a bramble bush. The den looks thorny on the outside, but inside, it's lined with pine needles and moss. There is a small boulder at the edge of the clearing, which serves as Clanrock, where the leader addresses the clan. Propped up next to Clanrock is another rock, and it creates a sheltered cave underneath. This cave is the medicine den, sick cats can rest in the ferns surrounding the boulder. There is another hollow shielded by a thorn bush. This is the nursery and the thorn bush offers great protection.
All the ShadowClan dens have a shallow dip in the ground, sheltered by tightly woven thorns and enclosed by the circle of brambles. The dens surrounded a clearing beneath pine trees, with the entrance to the camp at once end and a large lichen-covered rock, known as the Clanrock, at the other. ShadowClan Camp: A dark, well-concealed hollow, the camp is hidden deep in the shadows and is surrounded by brambles as prickly and fierce as the hearts of the ShadowClan warrors.
Carrionplace: Yuck! Smell that? This is an evil place where rats and disease lurk.
Thunderpath: The ability of ShadowClan to move freely across the most feared border of the Thunderpath has enhanced our reputation for mysterious strength and invincibility. The tunnel underneath the ThunderClan on ThunderClan's territory belongs to ShadowClan along with with the territory that leads to fourtrees from the tunnel. There is also a tunnel under the Thunderpath that is WindClan's border. The tunnel must be checked often just in case WindClan preystealers have crossed into our territory.
Burnt Sycamore: An ancient tree destroyed by lightning many moons ago. Apprentices are often trained here to hunt at night and stalk noiselessly though the undergrowth.
Rules are found on the Joining Page please follow them for all our sakes!
I realize that there are cats in other Clans are like this and I know that humans are like this, but I ask that here in ShadowClan there be no same-gender relations. Cats just don't do that.

Facts about ShadowClan before Bluestar's Time~
- Tigerstar must have seemed like the cat who would lead ShadowClan back to the days when they were feared and respected throughout the forest. (From Cats of the Clans)
- Blackstar never harks back to the days when ShadowClan won every battle, when it looked as if they really would take over the whole forest and make the other clans serve them.ShadowClan warriors are proud and fight well. (From Cats of the Clans)
- Their territory is the least rich in prey - no rivers running with fish, burrows full of rabbits, or leafy trees hiding songbirds and squirrels. They share their territory with lizards and frogs, and rats that feed on Twoleg waste in Carrionplace.
- If the other clans fear them, perhaps it is because ShadowClan is an enemy no cat would wish to have.
- Sometimes it even seems that StarClan shares the forest Clans' fears;...ShadowClan will have to battle for a long time yet against the better-favored Clans. Ok so this makes it look like ShadowClan is StarClan's least favorite...Taken from Cats of the Clans

- It is said that the cold north wind that blows across the ShadowClan territory chills their hears and makes them suspicious and untrusting.

- They are proud, loyal, defensive, and slightly arrogant; often seem to be misunderstood and portrayed by the other Clans as battle-hungry, aggressive, ambitious, and greedy for more territory.
- ShadowClan tends to hunt on ThunderClan territory threw leaf-bare and because they believe ThunderClan is too busy with RiverClan, to notice.
