    A cat

    Watches the border, his ears flicking nervously. The faint scent of Sandclan comes off him.

    A dark brown tom is sniffing at the edge of the Northclan border. He looks around cautiously.

    She padded up to te border, determind to patrol it daily- by herself. She sniffed the air, catching scents of two cats. One smelling like SandClan. She narrowed her eyes, thinking about her discussion with SeedStorm.

    |Northclan's Border| <br />

    <br />

    To the north of The Great Oak, between the mountains and deciduous forests, grows an ancient tropical rainforest. Titanic redwoods and hardy spruce grow as lords of this mysterious place, only broken by the occasional hemlock. This is a quiet world with few birds and little sunlight breaking through the sheltering branches. Instead voles, shrews, and weasels dash from tree to tree, relying on their pelts for camouflage against the cool needle strewn ground. A marsh adds to the eerie atmosphere and also provides the perfect home for cottonmouths. Fog envelops the area and rain is a constant companion, drenching everything with life giving water. One can hardly doubt that this is the border to Northclan's territory, the secretive and fierce. <br />

    <br />

    Hey everyone! Just clarifying the borders of each clan with a little narrative. Remember to patrol your borders daily and attack another clan by posting here and then at their camp. Feel free to have border crisis' to spice things up! <br />

    <br />
