Hello, Welcome to RippleClan. Not many get to see it's secrets it holds unless of course it's you. RippleClan is a islan in the middle of a lake only able to be accesed by swimming. We love to eat fish and watch the glistening waters reflect the moon or sun. We are protected by barriers tightly woven of reeds and thorns with a entrance of a small channel leading to th center of camp where we hold the fresh-kill pile wich ison a sandy patch in the circle of water in the camp. We hope you enjoy it here! <p> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ &#9788 &star Sunstar &star &#9788
