Clan Synopsis

NeedleClan is an ancient Clan. It had fallen long ago, and a kit, known as Pinekit, was destined to make it rise once more. But, this time, StarClan had told him, another cat must help him. The first cat Pineneedle had gone to was Alpenglow. Alpenglow agreed to remake this once fallen Clan. NeedleClan was bound to be up and running again! Pineneedle and Alpenglow were approved by StarClan, and they recieved their nine lives and went in search of a territory for the Clan. They stumbled upon an open field, with pine trees surrounding the field. "This is it, this is the place." Pinestar had told Alpenstar. They agreed to make the Clan take place here, and now, NeedleClan is a successful Clan.

Warrior Code

  1. Defend your Clan, even with your life. You may have friendships with cats from other Clans, but your loyalty must remain to your Clan, as one day you may meet them in battle.
  2. Do not hunt or trespass on another Clan's territory.
  3. Elders, queens, and kits must be fed before apprentices and warriors. Unless they have permission, apprentices may not eat until they have hunted to feed the elders. If any warrior or apprentice is sick or injured, they may eat while the elders, queens, and kits are eating.
  4.  Prey is killed only to be eaten. Give thanks to StarClan for its life.
  5. A kit must be at least six moons old to become an apprentice.
  6. Newly appointed warriors will keep a silent vigil for one night after receiving their warrior name.
  7. A cat cannot be made deputy without having mentored at least one apprentice.
  8. The deputy will become Clan leader when the leader dies, retires or is exiled.
  9. After the death or retirement of the deputy, the new deputy must be chosen before moonhigh.
  10. Boundaries must be checked and marked daily. Challenge all trespassing cats.
  11. No warrior can neglect a kit in pain or danger.
  12. The word of the Clan leader is the warrior code.
  13. An honorable warrior does not need to kill other cats to win their battles, unless they are outside the warrior code or if it is necessary for self-defense.
  14. A warrior rejects the soft life of a kittypet.

Regulations

  1. Godmodding and Mary Sue characters are not allowed. Perfect characters are what Mary Sues are, and Godmodding is a synonym for "power-playing".
  2. Cat pelts/eyes must remain semi-realistic. Cats do not have purple eyes or bright red fur.
  3. You can leave twice before not being able to apply again.
  4. Unwanted or over the top drama must first be approved by the leader as a plot. NeedleClan is meant to be as a fun place to roleplay, not a strict group where you have to take everything seriously.
  5. Please try to remain active and post a notice if you are going to be inactive for a long amount of time.


HIERARCHY

LEADER DEPUTY

【2/2】

This rank is closed.

Leaders are the head of their Clan. Their personality is the same as their Clan's and describes how their Clanmates treat others. The word of the Clan leader is law, proclaimed by the warrior code, and all other Clan cats must obey them. They have their own den, and are assisted by a deputy in their tasks. They are responsible for the whole Clan, calling Clan meetings, appointing cats to new ranks, and making the toughest decisions.

【1/2】

This rank is closed.

Deputies are second in command of a Clan. A deputy is chosen by the leader to be their successor. Deputies sleep in the warriors' den; they do not have their own den like leaders do. Deputies are responsible for organizing daily patrols for the Clan, such as hunting patrols and border patrols. If a Clan leader is unable to lead a Clan temporarily due to sickness, being away from the Clan, etc., then the deputy would take over for that time. If a deputy is sick or injured, then a warrior will temporarily take their place.

【1/3】

This rank is open.

{The Head Medicine cat is the only one marked with the symbol, ✾}. Medicine cats are Clan cats who treat diseases and injuries, and who receive directions and guidance from StarClan. They have their own den in their Clan's camp, where they sleep, store herbs, and treat wounded or sick cats. Medicine cats are not allowed to take mates or have kits. They are expected to stand apart from Clan rivalries. They are deeply respected by their Clanmates and few cats dare to argue with them.

【1/3】

This rank is open.

A medicine cat apprentice sleeps in the medicine cat den with the full medicine cat. Medicine cat apprentices get their full name even when not known as the medicine cat. Medicine cat apprentices are taught about healing techniques, such as how to care for a sick cat, or what herbs and medicines do. They also learn how to interpret signs from StarClan.

APPRENTICES ELDERS

【5/10】

This rank is open.

Apprentices have their own den in the Clan camp where they sleep. Once an apprentice earns their warrior name, they are a full warrior and they are able to contribute to warrior duties, and they move in the warriors den. They are taught by a mentor who will then report their training to the Clan leader.

【0/10】

This rank is open.

Elders stay in their den most of the day, and enjoy meeting new kits. However, they may leave the camp if they wish to do so, such as to take a walk to stretch their legs or to hunt. Sometimes, they participate in Gatherings. Elders are to be held with the utmost respect from cats of all Clans. They have served the Clan well in the past as apprentices and warriors. During their youth, they took care of the elders of their generation. Now, it is their turn to rest, and the youth of the Clan is to take care of them in honor of all they have done to serve the Clan.

KITS QUEENS

【0/10】

This rank is open.

Kits stay in the nursery together with their mother who nurses them and takes care of them for six moons. All Clan cats, and especially the queens and the mother, are very protective of kits. They are fed first and are not expected to catch their own food or do chores. It is said in the warrior code that: "No warrior may neglect a kit in danger, even if it is from a different Clan". Kits are not allowed out of the nursery until their mother feels the time is right. After that, they can go around the camp, though never far from their mother. A kit cannot leave the Clan camp without being escorted by a warrior; however, sometimes they get away and get in trouble.

style="border: 1px #000000 solid;width:50%"background:#ffffff" |

【3/5】

This rank is open.

When a warrior she-cat is expecting kits or has recently given birth to a litter of kits, they become known as a queen and move to the nursery. When she-cats become queens, they give up their title and duties as a warrior. However, they become a warrior again once their kits have been apprenticed. Queens have a vital role in continuing the Clans' survival as they give birth to the next generation of warriors. If a queen does not wish to tell who the father of the kits is to the Clan, that is her choice. Queens usually adore their kits and want to make sure that they can be the best that they can be. {Permanent Queens are the only ones marked with the symbol, ✾}

Territory

NeedleClan territory is a large forest with no other Clans near them. A long river runs throughout the forest that is supplied by a waterfall from the mountains incasing the forest in a valley. Birds, rabbit and squirrel are the most common prey. Herbs are fairly easy to find and there are many beautiful places in the forest. Stepping stones are scattered throughout the river for getting across it easily. The ground is often covered with pine needles as it is a pine forest. The main dangers are floods, landslides and large animals such as bears and wolves.
