    |Slough Creek Introduction - Part 3|
    <br />

    <br />

    A light gray tabby shecat pads in and announces, &quot;Now since the Pact Clans live in Yellowstone National Park, certain activities will no longer be realistic to rp. These are listed below. <br />

    <br />

    1. There are no twoleg places nearby or thunderpaths. Cats would have to travel far outside of the meadow to find the closest gravel thunderpath and campground. Therefore monsters will not be seen in the area nor will dogs. Dogs are not allow within the back country of Yellowstone, only in campgrounds and next to thunderpaths. Visiting twolegs also do not leave traps in Yellowstone, hunt, or steal the local wildlife, so they will not likely bother the clans. Only park rangers may come into direct contact with our cats. <br />

    <br />

    2. The pact clans will not be experiencing certain weather events such as hurricanes, tornados, dust storms, ect. Those do not occur in Yellowstone. Instead things like wildfire, earthquakes, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, ect. will be our more realistic threats. Also dealing with large predators will become of greater importance. Foxes and badgers are no longer the worst threat. However the larger predators have much larger territories than our cats and will therefore not constantly be in the area causing trouble.
    <br />

    <br />

    3. Unfortunately I was unable to find an area near the geysers in Yellowstone that had all five clan preferences nearby and was isolated enough from twolegs. So unless cats have to travel outside the meadow a long ways, they will not be exposed to them. Also certain trees do not grow in this region including oak, maple, ash, birch, and beech and ferns are also rare. Overall the plant and animal species listed at the borders are very specific and accurate so be sure to follow those guidelines. For example there are no poisonous snakes at Slough Creek and only trout inhabit its waters so death from snakebite or fishing for perch wouldn't be realistic.
    <br />

    <br />

    4. This area has many pieces of land that will likely be fought over. These include: <br />

    - A large pond at the base of Canyon Cliffs which originally belongs to Sandclan but could become Rainclan territory. <br />

    - A lower stretch of creek which originally belongs to Northclan but could become Sandclan or Rainclan territory. <br />

    - Saddle Meadows originally belongs to Rainclan but could become Horseclan territory. <br />

    - The Old Oxbow originally belongs to Horseclan but could become Sandclan or Ashclan territory. <br />

    - And lastly Aspen Heights originally belongs to Ashclan but could become Horseclan territory. <br />

    Just keep those places in mind for conflicts. The butte in the center of Sandclan territory is the gathering place and therefore is owned by no one and The Star Cave (similar to the Moonpool) is located downstream of the clan territories. <br />

    <br />

    <br />

    Parts 1, 2, and 3 of the Slough Creek Introduction contain the basic information everyone in the Pact Clans should know about Slough Creek. Be sure you have read them all! This has been carefully planned for the pact clans to live here and it is easily viewable, allowing more realism and fun! Thanks for reading!&quot; <br />

    Read the first few pages. Several errors that did not match with the book. Do not purchase if you want the real details.
