    ClanCharacterDescrip,Messages,Bio Add-ons,Rules,Read please.

    I will not reply here. Tell me a result to reply on. <p> LegendStar Bio addon-No mate,no crush,no kits <p> Clan Character-Gentle,kind and wise (mostly) clan home to some nautralists, artists,Legends,medicine cats,dreamwalkers,warriors,and regular cats!Welcoming to loners and generally peaceful,but will fight when needed.Fighting skills arent rusty here,so watch out! This clan likes the forest and is like ThunderClan and SkyClan from the first series and guides,but may run swiftly while they can get tired more than WindClan.May have an old alliance with ThunderClan (Nook). <p> Past camps-"Uncle Remus"and "the old camp" <p> Rules-The Warrior Code that I may post from the Warriors Books.Roleplay should be semi-advanced and realistic as possible,try to remain active and leave notes. <p> Non-Canon Clan Traditions- New Warriors, before their vigil,must run at late sun-low (evening how I say it) through the forest boundary once as part of their training and then at moon-high they will gain a necklace for special occasions with one crystal or jewel on it.If they do something special, the leader may decide to grant them a gemstone,especially if they did something important.Warriors with 10 gemstones,elders,or the dying regardless of their rank or status become Legends.Medicine cats and leaders go to the Moonstone, and a prophecy must be agreed upon by several rpers and involve cats rped by more than one person.They have to be special and can include cats not born or joined yet. (ex.Legend goes where the stone weeps-isn't that well thought out,The paw that Rattle Steps with the Whisper of Pride up the mountainside to lead the clan of lore-Is fine,but PrideWhisper and RattleStep/star probably would be apprentinces at the time and not all prophecies are that 'obvious' and some should center on the Clan, like-The Emerald and the Aspen lead a river to water the ground, where the mysteries are to be found.The raging wind follows them and Clover leads when the deadly rain falls,the Adder returns heeding an ancient call.The Vole rises and the lore may be doomed forevermore.-A good long one,look in the Warriors books for reference.)Remember that not all can be cured-no godmodding,Powerplaying,or puppeteering others.Preferably NO Mature Adult content.Keep Drama to a minimum.Follow these rules and the Code and you'll be fine!Additions may be posted at "lore".-LegendStar/Em ((Thanks for reading,I may be gone unexpectedly but don't worry.
