“The game doesn’t really matter. I mean, I’ll give 100 percent of my heart to win it, but in the end, the thing I most want to do is not win championships or make a lot of money, it’s to invest in people’s lives, to make a difference.” —Tim Tebow

A large, sparkling, misty cat with wings came out of the water through the FangStone. <br> "All of you are here for a purpose, and that is to form the Clans. Now, I must give you each two gifts." She nodded to each cat. "Blaze, you have the gift of charisma. You can convince cats to join with you easily. You are now Blazestar." She nodded to the golden, tigerlike tom. "Viper, you have the gift of intelligence. You may use knowledge to trick others. You are now Viperstar." She nodded to the brown, black, and grey tom. "Flower, you have the gift of dexterity. You can easily climb trees, and quickly get out of harm's way with this skill. You are now Flowerstar." She nodded to the greyish shecat with bright green eyes. "Amythist, you have the gift of honesty. You cannot tell a lie, but you make friends more easily. You are now Amythiststar." She said to the black shecat with purple eyes. "Fear, you have the gift of wrath. All around you shall fear you. You are now Fearstar." She said to the large, greyish tom with his black left ear and bright orange-yellow eyes. "Destruction, you have the gift of battle. You will find yourself extraordinarily good at fighting. You are now Destructionstar." She said to the battle scarred, dark grey and black tom. "Wood, you have the gift of the hunt. You will find yourself extremely good at hunting- and will thrive. You are now Woodstar." She said to the small, brown shecat. "Rushing, you have been given the gift of water. You can swim at extraordinary speeds- without getting wet. You are now Rushingstar." She said to the light grey, almost white, tom with blue eyes. "Ocean, you have the gift of wisdom. You shall be wise and careful, thinking and overthinking everything, you shall live past most other cats. You are now Oceanstar." She said to the small sandy colored shecat with deep blue eyes. "Horse, you have the gift of speed. You will be extraordinarilly fast, even at a walking pace. You are now Horsestar." She said to the brown, strong legged cat with a bizzare white diamond on his head. "Death, you have the gift of strength. You are strong and can easily nock cats down and pin the- without being thrown off. You are now Deathstar." She said to the large, black tom with reddish eyes. "Frost, you have the gift of heartiness. You can withstand the coldest tempatures, as were many others will perish. You are now Froststar." She said to the white shecat with light blue eyes. "You must gather all cats where the territory meets by the next fullmoon- the supermoon- and convince them to group up into Clans. If you succeed, the Clans shall be named after you and you shall recieve your second gift. If you fail, cats will live in misery until another twelve nobles rise." She said. <br> "What will the Clans be called, where will they live?" Asked Viper. <br> ViperClan, Snakelands, BlazeClan, Desert Territory, FlowerClan, Jungle, AmethystClan, CaveLands, FearClan, twoleg ruins, DestructionClan, Burnt Forestland, WoodClan, Forestland, RushingClan, River, OceanClan, World of land end, HorseClan, HorseLands, DeathClan, Darkplace, FrostClan, Mount IceFang."
